Founders Double Diamond
RICKY NG THONG KOOK
Even as a teenager, Ricky had been seeking opportunities to succeed. He wanted to be able to pursue his dream instead of living from hand-to-mouth. When he moved to Kuala Lumpur, he found plenty of business opportunities but all required him to meet some form of basic requirements to be given a chance. He started his AMWAY™ business on a part-time basis, using the motorbike his father gave him.
Today, his once small-scale, part-time venture has developed into an inheritable, global business that not only promises financial security but also a true sense of freedom. Recalling his humble beginnings, he says, “I still remember the time when my team member and I sold AMWAY products door-to-door on our motorbikes at a posh residential area as a test of our courage and to conquer our fear. Looking at those luxury condos, I told my partner I would build my dream home with an environmentally friendly concept there. Now 27 years later, I have fulfilled my dream.”
According to Ricky, to achieve one’s goal, one must have a plan and present oneself as a successful person from the inside out. “There must be a plan inside your heart which you can see confidently. Only then will you be on the right path to success. Confidence translates into hope. It is a powerful tool that can reenergise and bring unbelievable changes to your life!”
“It all begins with an opportunity. You must be able to see it and not let it slip away. I believe everyone will get the chance to change their lives. Whether or not you will take the chance and make a difference in your life, that’s up to you,” he says.
