CALVIN LEE & LI SHAN
Li Shan was an accountant, working and studying part-time. I am a chemical engineer, working as a manager in a multinational company in Singapore. We were leading pretty comfortable lives, but we knew that our income was not secure as it depended on our ability to work. I started to look for a source of passive income that does not require me to sacrifice my daytime job. That’s when I met my AMWAY sponsor; the rest as they say, is history.
I often ask people, “If you don’t design your own life’s plan, chances are, you will follow someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you?” By design, most people have to work hard for 40 years and only get to enjoy 10 years of retirement life. But we wanted something different for our life, a life where we only work hard for 10 years and enjoy 40 years of retirement.
We chose to compress that 40 years of hard work into five years of dedication and commitment in our AMWAY business. Working hard isn’t the most important thing, making the right choice is! With AMWAY, we were able to be financially free in our early 30s, an achievement that I’d have never thought possible working as a professional. Li Shan was able to retire from her profession at 28 years old.
We achieved our Diamond pin while I was building the business part-time. I am able to continue working my daytime profession without having to work for the money. More importantly, we were able to get out of the rat race early in our lives and built a steady and secure income for our family. Our children will be able to continue to inherit our income long after we are gone.
Before this, we could only afford to travel to Asian countries on a budget. With AMWAY, we’ve travelled in business class to different continents. We’ve been to Paris, Hokkaido, London, Auckland, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Arizona, Sweden, Russia, Finland, Latvia, Tanzania, and most recently Mediterranean Cruise.
With AMWAY, your success depends on how many people you can help be successful. For this reason, we made many true friends on our journey to becoming Diamond. Nothing can be more gratifying than seeing somebody’s life change for the better and when they say it was all because of you!
The professional development and entrepreneurial training programmes by AMWAY can transform an ordinary person without a business background to become a successful entrepreneur. I’ve seen people from all walks of life – from homemakers to blue collar workers, and highly successful professionals to business owners becoming successful with AMWAY.
AMWAY is truly the best vehicle for retirement planning. It is a business that allows someone to build their business part-time. And after a few years of hard work, the business can produce enough passive income for you to retire comfortably.
Success doesn’t come easily in any endeavour. There will be distractions, failures and rejections on your road to success. But if you stay focused on your dreams and goals, equip yourself with the right knowledge about the business and consistently take action, you will eventually win people to your cause.
