Hello there! Welcome to my personal website which will give you a better idea about who I am, what I’m all about and most importantly, how I can best help YOU.
Well, as you already know, my name is Mavis Nong and I am a Professional Internet Marketer and Coach, working in direct sales.
I moved to the UK some five years ago. I live in Bristol, south-west of London with my lovely husband of six fantastic years, Jolly and our 4 year old adorable daughter, Masego and new baby daughter, Lesedi. I work my business from the comfort of my living room, around my daughters. My days of working long hours, reporting to a boss and meeting deadlines are over!
I am extremely passionate about what I do. I also love the fact that I can take my business with me wherever I travel to. Just give me a laptop and a mobile phone!
I’m originally from the beautiful, sunny South Africa, which is located at the southern tip of Africa... born to the nicest parents and raised in a city called Polokwane, north of Johannesburg. I am the eldest sister to my two dear brothers.
The country has got it all: year-round sunshine, beautiful beaches, abundant wildlife, wonderful hiking trails, superb shopping malls and more.
There is a lot of great things happening in the country at the moment, however the highlight is the Football World Cup to be hosted by South Africa this year – the first time the festival of football will be held on African soil! So, you can imagine the excitement... :-)
My desire for entrepreneurship stemmed from childhood. Ever since I was 5 years old, I had a drive to run my own business. When I was playing with my friends and cousins, I preferred playing a storekeeper, using my mum’s calculator for a cash-till. I was also inspired by my mum as she worked from home selling different things.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Administration degree. I then worked for a large retail company in South Africa as a graduate trainee. I felt my personal and development goals were not adequately achieved. 3 years later, I joined the world’s second largest mining company as a Human Resources (HR) Practitioner.
I continued with post-graduate studies (part-time) and obtained high-level qualifications. I also moved up the corporate ladder rapidly – a high flyer definitely. I thought I had a “dream” career.
When I got married, my career was at its peak, the company had great things in store for me. However, it was time for me to let go and start a new life in a new country.
After months of many unsuccessful job applications in the UK, I was left devastated and frustrated. In the end, I took a basic office role, just to keep me going. I hated that job with a passion and being a housewife was not an option for me.
When our first daughter was born, I knew I didn’t want to go back to my horrible job and I also had a desire to spend more time with her at home. I had a burning desire to free my entrepreneurial spirit. Little did I know that I would end up in network marketing.
My home business was nothing but an uphill battle but I wasn’t going to give up. I was determined to find solutions to rescue my drowning business.
Thanks to my patience, persistence and determination to learn about the effective marketing strategies to build a real long-term business because I can now help other serious and motivated entrepreneurs to propel their businesses to the new levels.
Here is a summary of an article that I recently wrote that can help you:
How To Start And Grow Your Network Marketing Business
Before you can start a home business, you need to have a clear vision of what you want your business to become, then take specific action steps to get there. A positive mindset is critical to the success of your business.
Choose a direct sales company, instead of a traditional MLM.
Find the right mentor who "has been there, done that" and who is able to see the whole picture. A fact is, you can't succeed in this industry without a good and supportive mentor behind you. With the right mentor, the sky is the limit!
If you want to have your phone ringing off the hook, prospects calling you all the time, then you will need to learn how to sell YOU, not your products and services. People don't join companies, they join people - leaders who can help them get what they want.
If you really want to take your home business to the next level, then internet marketing is the way to go. It allows you to market any product to anyone, anywhere in the world without making a personal contact. The traditional marketing methods like chasing family and friends, cold-calling prospects and buying leads simply do NOT work in this internet day and age!
Get the right training. Sadly, most network marketers fail in this industry due to the lack of marketing training. You will need a platform to train you on all the cutting edge marketing techniques both online and offline, if you want to stand any chance in this highly competitive market.
Get the right marketing system. There are countless systems out there that offer network marketing training and lead generation tools but you need to do your research and find the best one for you. With an effective system, you should be able to see significant results within a short period of time.
Build a list because without a list your business will collapse - the money is in the list! As you build your business, it's important to learn how to build a relationship with your list before you can start marketing to your list.
Set up a funded proposal which ensures that you don't spend yourself out of business because it provides you with a way to cover your business costs from the onset. If you don't use this smart strategy when building your business, you'll go broke before you see any significant results from your efforts.
There are new opportunities and systems coming up all the time and it can be difficult to resist the temptation to try new things coming into the market. You may also be overwhelmed by the different marketing strategies available and find yourself wanting to learn and use them all. Focus is the key to success in this industry. Jumping ships and joining multiple opportunities is not advisable, especially in the early stages of your business.
