In a recent article published in Forbes.com, Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, talks about our world being on the brink of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), which is ‘characterised by a range of new technologies that are fusing the physical, digital and biological worlds, impacting all disciplines, economies and industries, and even challenging ideas about what it means to be human.’  In addition to this truth, South African households have never been more stretched than they are in the present age given recent fuel and electricity price hikes.  Just when society had gotten their heads around the recent introduction of the power couple, there is now a pressing need for individuals whether married with dependants or, single to find alternate streams of revenue generation, given the high cost of living.

This shouldn’t spark cause for alarm but rather excitement of what the future holds from an entrepreneurial perspective.  The bulk of the working world was taught by parents to work at a company and, spend years serving them loyally before retirement age hits.  In the current age we live in, this is a teaching which has been given a decent burial with many of us casting our eyes to the future and a horizon which seems bright with business promise.  I started out in my career as a qualified pharmacist with a passion for business and am now in the middle of my career having accomplished so much more than I had initially set out to do.  As a young entrepreneur, I have managed, marketed and grew market share in six of the enterprises I have been involved in to date.  My unique involvement in network marketing went totally against the grain of my parents’ teaching however, this has served me well.

It has been a fortunate, freeing and humbling experience to take businesses from start-ups and incubation phases to fully fledged global entities.  I was faced with the obvious sense of scepticism everyone is faced with upon hearing of network marketing.  Given the bad rap the structure had gotten in the past, I heard of many people losing their hard-earned cash to pyramid schemes which scared me.  However, after attending a few seminars, I learnt that pyramid selling was an illegal and entirely different concept when compared to network marketing.  There are key elements to look out for in setting out on a direct selling career.  Some of which include the legitimacy of the company in question; their compensation plan; the integrity and sound basis of the product offering, the rewards, recognition and remuneration they offer and, the total investment of time and investment required on the member’s part.  These are typically disclosed at the company’s training seminars.  At Young Living, we place no requirement for commitment should you decide to attend a training seminar.  The decision to commit to a network marketing career is entirely up to the individual from a Young Living perspective. Our vision is to see an oil in every household changing people’s lives in a positive way.

Young Living is a direct selling company with its unique proprietary Seed to Seal production process, produce concentrated essential oils for global consumption.  The company is committed to providing pure, powerful products to suit every family and lifestyle, all infused with the life-changing benefits of its essential oils.

I have an immense passion to see change come to South Africa.  I believe that we are a country rich in natural resources and in talented people with a natural flair for entrepreneurship.  This is one of the reasons why I decided to get involved in network marketing.  After all these years, I still believe that through hard work, integrity and passion, we can right the injustices of the past and see a brighter, prosperous country.

If you’re keen to find out more about setting up your own business or side-hustle as it is colloquially known, why not take the same chance Kemble Morgan did and come through to an introductory seminar to find out more.  These are free of charge and don’t require a day’s worth of time commitment from the attendee.  One hour in duration, interested parties can come in, learn more about the business and be on your way without committing if you feel a career in network marketing isn’t for you.

If anything, you can become a customer and enjoy the many benefits the oils have to offer in your daily life.
