If you, by any chance, didn’t find my previous article useful (or I haven’t managed to persuade you to join Oriflame :-)), I decided to share with you my own personal-based story of how did I join in Oriflame Academy. The highly important fact is that this isn’t the one of these fake stories, which can be heard on every single corner, this one is a plain truth, and you have you my word on it.
So, it all started in the year of 2005. I just have started my college, when a good friend of mine, ask me to join in some educative workshop, which was organized by famous Swedish cosmetic company, Oriflame.
These days, I haven’t been familiar with the term Oriflame, so I asked my friend to fill me in with any further information, which she refused and told me that absolutely everything will be clear enough after a two-day seminar. And, so we went. That seminar took place in a big conference room in one of the biggest hotels in our town. At first, I was so surprised by the amount of people, who attended that seminar. Every single place was taken. I was pretty surprised by the fact that most of us there, were around my age! So, it looked like that, almost, the whole youth of our town (which is, in fact, quite big) came to attend this seminar.
I’ve found these beauty workshops quite interesting and I’ve, also, learnt a bunch of pretty interesting stuff regarding the new trends in fashion and makeup (techniques and the latest trends, when it comes to how to properly apply your makeup- I was, even, chosen to be present a model, on which the famous makeup artist Gary Cockerill. Later, I have found out that this guy was a special guest from the UK, who, at the same time, was the most respected and well known make-up artists and who, eventually, was cooperating with the stars like: David Beckham, Robbie Williams (my favorite singer :-), by the way), Catherine Deneuve, Ewan McGregor, Joan Collins, Jason Statham…). Not only was I completely satisfied with the way Gary applied the makeup on my face, but I was so stunned by the fact that I was touched by the exact hands, which have been touched Robbie's face :-))))))). I felt more than thrilled!
I have learnt so much stuff regarding the importance to be proper cared (whole your skin complexion, including here a hair and nail hair), how is truly of a vital significance to have a proper balanced nutrition for our entire organisms, how to feel truly connected with a nature, how to show respect to it and many, many more.
They have convinced me that they in Oriflame have been fighting for the right cause, that their company really respect nature (all the whole our environment, in general). That they are very human organization, which not only produces top-quality products, which can be found, almost exclusively, on natural ingredients, but also help many children's organizations worldwide by certain money donations. I have never, in my whole life, met with the similar company. I was truly mesmerized with their humanity. There, I met many of my future essential partners and colleagues, who had then also join Oriflame.
Later, my friend (and now very dear colleague :-)) supplied me with some additional information regarding the base business rules of the company, explained the basic principles of possible earnings, addressed me better in some fundamental managerial moves, and, so I started with a job. At first, I was a regular consultant that now, I’ve been one of the leading managers Oriflame in my country. I'd be lying, if I told you that one of my motive wasn’t profit, but primarily what I was, in a way, “bought” (besides Gary, of course: -)) was the whole humanitarian story, of which I was literally thrilled about.
So, that was (in very short form :-)) my personal experience, so it all depends on you- you can decide to follow your own dreams or not! I, obliviously, opted for the first option, and I can tell you, looking from this perspective now-that’s been the best business decision, which I have made in my whole lifetime! No regrets of any kind! Now, I have the unique opportunity to travel with Oriflame thought all the world, to attend some pretty interesting seminars and a variety of workshops, to meet and hang out with my dear friends and colleagues, to meet someone new (a totally “freshmen” in our business), to have utterly fun, to allow my family to shop at greater discounts and to, at that same time, to earn a proper salary, by which I am more than satisfied! By the time, Oriflame becomes my only source of incomes, I devoted it my heart and soul, and, like I’ve, already, pointed out, I’ve never regretted it!!!
