ANISAH & HAMID
Anisah believed in the saying that “opportunity knocks but only once”, therefore when the AMWAY™ Business Opportunity was presented to her in 1980, she grabbed it without a second thought. Right off the bat, she was committed to the business and knew that it would be a lifetime pursuit for her.
It took a few months for the fire to kindle in Hamid, but he lent his unstinting support once he fully recognised the potential of the business. The husband-and-wife team stood by each other through thick and thin as they learnt the ropes and weathered challenges, especially in the early years when the range of AMWAY products available was limited.
“Though we had never sold anything before or had never been exposed to direct selling, we had faith in our uplines, the business, the products and the company. We believed in leading by example; we used the products ourselves, worked on cultivating the right attitude and managing our time and finances more effectively,” says Anisah.
They appreciate being able to interact with fellow ABOs who come from different backgrounds yet share the same aspirations and ideals. However, what the couple cherish most is the uncommon freedom, peace of mind and security the business affords, especially as they grow older. “Economic slowdowns have no effect on our business. In fact, we attained higher levels of achievements during economic slowdowns! Life in AMWAY is exciting. We can always expect new things, new experiences, meet new people and visit new places.”
