Profile Information

Tell us about what you do
I have been married for 39 years and the same man...:-) We left the UK in 1982 to start a new life in South Africa with our 2 young daughters. 32 yrs later we are still here & now have 2 grandchildren.

We all live close by to one another in Durban on the east coast of South Africa. Our home is close to a nature reserve where the vervet monkeys come to play in our garden each day.
About My Business
I've been working online now for 7 years. I have certainly had my share of failure and success and have learned that success is normally determined by these simple elements: determination, commitment, persistence, patience, COMMUNICATION and above all Team Work!

I've also learned that the most important and rewarding aspect of Network Marketing is the relationships that are built - both in business and personally.

My main goal is to continue to develop those relationships, helping as many people as I can to achieve success in building confidence and creating a stable future (financial and otherwise) for themselves and their families.

If you continue to do the same things in network marketing as you're doing right now,and nothing has been working for you then what will have changed in 2 to 5 years time?
This is your chance to change - Your Future Starts Today! Let me help you to do that.

This is why I'm here: to share, learn, and grow. So, please feel free to share, learn and grow with me.
What companies or organisations are you with?
Syntek Global -

Motivation is the Key

Here is another angle to the Principle of Service and how you can use it to motivate yourself.

The principle of service states that the demand of your service is determined by the quality of your service.

This has been a strong motivator for me as a distributor of Syntek Global. I realized that if I offered an excellent product, more people would want to join the business with me. This motivated me to try harder with my marketing efforts. I don't think it was perfect, but I always tried my best. I was motivated by the financial implications.

Tom Hopkins says: "The income you earn is little more than a scoreboard reflection of the service you give."

If you know that your livelihood, a promotion, or even your career depends on it, then you are motivated to put in your best effort. You will get to work early, stay late and work during lunch because you know that if you produce excellent work, you will be rewarded.
Let this principle motivate you when you are feeling demotivated at work. Be all you can be.

Draw the best out of your team

"An important ingredient of the leadership function is the ability to draw the best out of other people" – Dr Myles Munroe

Draw the best out of your team in the office, on the sports field, or in business by:

  • Having them set goals for themselves
  • Encouraging them when they have accomplished mini-goals
  • Encouraging them to do better when they have not performed that well
  • Challenging them when they have not performed well at…

I think the following poem will inspire you all.

Work that is play.

“There is work that is work and there is play that is play; there is play that is work and work that is play. And in only one of these lie happiness.” - Gelett Burgess

When you are following a career that you believe is your purpose, then work becomes play. But for many people this is an unattainable dream…
