Young and Livin' the Life! (part two)

Marlon and Pen Ilagan, Nu Skin Philippines' Blue Diamond executives and recipient of Direct Selling Association of the Philippines' Top Entrepreneur of the Year, answers some of the Most Frequently Asked Questions regarding networking and the rewarding opportunity of Nu Skin Enterprises.

What is the most challenging aspect in the Nu Skin business that you constantly had to hurdle?

The most challenging aspect of this business is when people quit. I understand that many people are normally quitters.

This business is about finding and helping people who want to help themselves. Other people may quit on the business, but I will never quit on my dreams.

What are the instances that you almost gave up (please specify) but what made (specify also) you continue to move on with the business?
Ever since I joined Nuskin, I made a one time decision to become successful no matter what. It never crossed my mind to quit.

How do you motivate yourself?
 Every time I go home, I see my wonderful kids, Miko, Maki, and Mika. I truly want the best life for them. They give me strength to continue when I am tired. When on the road in different provinces, I always call them or look at their picture. They remind me that I must pursue excellence in this business to give them a dream lifestyle

What is the secret to getting new clients? Sponsoring new people?
There is no secret. Hard work, focus, and consistency is key. 

How do you break the ice, when talking to new people? When doing "bumps"?
Honestly, I don't know how to do bumps. I always advocate sponsoring from warm market always, and working on the warm market of new partners. 

Do you still have people in your chicken list? who?
Not anymore. 

What is the most valuable gift that this business has given you?
Time with my family. The ability to become the best husband, provider, and father to my family. The business also gave me the ability to eliminate money problems from our life. 

You are a leader, managing leaders. how do you handle your organization, especially that they have become bigger and they are leaders in their own rights?
I truly believe that to grow my organization, I must lead by example. Leaders always lead on the battlefield, not in a strategy room.

what is your future goals in your business and why?
My short term goal in the business is to be team elite this year. For the next 5 years, my goal is to create 1,000 new executives & 20 Blue Diamonds in my organization. I want to create wealth that can be passed on to my family for generations. This can only be achieved by helping other people become successful also.

What are the regrets that you have, and how do you live with it?
I have no regrets. Our past does not define our future. The beauty of this business is that it enables us to create the future we desire free from our past mistakes. 

Any message for the new distributors/ sign-ups/ for those who are still thinking of joining Nu Skin?
This will be the most rewarding experience you can have. This business won't be easy, but definitely it will be the easiest business you can ever own. Keep your focus and don't ever quit.
