What is your background like?
I was born in Hammanskraal Northern Gauteng Province but grew up in Limpopo Province, South Africa. I am from a very large family–more than 15 children–so I had to be independent early on. I taught myself to communicate better and to push myself to say, “Faith, you have to shine.” I went to school, joined the corporate world and worked for a large bank and call centres. However, the network marketing bug hit me, and I’ve been affiliated with several network marketing companies. I was originally a little sceptical in the beginning after seeing one in my downline withdrawing and performing so well. I then decided to start working the business more.
"Your health is your greatest wealth."
Isn’t that amazing? You learned from your downline?
Incredible. She knew the back office so well, I was amazed. Her name is Lonely Sedi, and this was a person I introduced into the business, but she ended up teaching me about the business.
Do you ever get on Zoom and do training with your upline?
I attend the Zoom calls we have with Lesedi. Those are the calls that have helped make me a success. I make sure I attend those trainings at least two or three times a week. I also make sure not to miss Peter Jakobssons on Sunday’s. The only way you are going to come out of Crowd1 successfully is to attend the trainings. I have never seen a company like Crowd1 that can train their affiliates and make a success out of us.
Lately, with the pandemic and everything that has been going on in the world, what has been going through your mind?
Your health is your greatest wealth. I always say that when your health is at its strongest, you have everything. Health is also your state of mind. I have also been thinking about the empowerment of women and where I can contribute to improving the lives of women.
How do you make contact with new members, how do you get the word out there?
90% of my contacts are through social media. Otherwise, I distribute flyers. I go to shopping malls and distribute flyers. My car has Crowd1 magnetic stickers on it. “Use your smartphone to make money.” I get a lot of contacts through people seeing my car sticker. I am a brand myself; I wear t-shirts, I am always branded no matter where I am.
