Who am I? <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
My name is Sarette Vermaak. I am a Network marketer, a Wellness Coach, a Wife and a Mum. I share a house and home office with my husband and our 2 dogs. We live in a small town, Patensie, in the beautiful Eastern Cape of South Africa and our house is bordering a game farm. I am passionate about the outdoors, gardening, travelling, my family and my business.
My past – working for the big guys.
I worked for a big export company for 14 years. I started off as some-ones assistant and worked myself up the ranks until I was part of the Export Marketing management Team. I thought nothing of it to work up to 16 hours per day – I loved my job, would rush home at 18h00 to feed my toddlers, read them a story, put them in bed and leave them in the care of my husband while I go back to see if the nightshift is doing okay.
I was part of a hugely successful team – we were recognized internationally for our marketing efforts to put the Company on the World map of exports. In 2004 my husband was elected CEO of the company and it was then that the board of directors dropped the bomb which changed my life - I was not to be part of the marketing team anymore. Apparently it was too big a risk – the 2 of us making such a strong and successful team – one of the very lame excuses was that should we die travelling together; the company will be crippled by the loss. Much later I found it ironic that in a working environment it can be dangerous to be too successful as well. I was to be demoted to a small office somewhere in the company. I prefer to resign and start my own business.
Wise 1 Administration was born
I had to borrow money to open up and equip an office, because after working for 14 years I had nothing to show for it. I made a vow that I will become successful and that I will provide opportunities for women wherever and whenever possible. Within 2 months I had contracts with 5 companies and I had to employ the first of a couple of ladies to assist in the Wise 1 office. 2004 was such a successful year for us that we won the Fair Lady/Liberty life Business start-up awards end of that year.
Although Wise1 is successful and continues to grow, it is seasonal by nature and we needed to diversify and establish steady income from another source.
So what else?
The principle of network marketing fascinated me, because I realized that I can reach more people and I can offer more opportunities to more people. After some research I found a MLM which best suited my needs for an alternative business. It looked like a structured business approach with all the systems that are needed already worked out and in place and one has a personal mentor to give step-by-step guidance. This was very important as I knew from the experience of establishing my first business how difficult it can be when trying to go it alone.
Success in Network Marketing is not coming easy and it surely is not guaranteed if you just talk to 10 people per day. It is a business and should be run like a business; it demands hard work, perseverance, time and money. If you are looking for a home business, choose something you are passionate about and then make sure that you join a group with complete online systems in place.
