Welcome to my blog. My name is Mommy Lynn and I am from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
In this article, I will share my personal story how I got started building my network marketing business by partnering with a direct to consumer company known as BE International.
Above is a picture of me and my husband, Daddy Will.
My working career
Back in the year 2010, I was working as a Human Resource Manager for an office equipment manufacturing company located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The following year I resigned from my job and got married to my husband.
The year after that, we had our first child.
2 years later, we had our second child.
In a blink of an eye, 6 years have gone by.
That was how long I became a full time housewife and mother.
As a woman, I believe in financial independence.
I don’t want to fully rely on my husband financially.
I also want to contribute to my family economically and financially.
In the year 2016, I decided to get back into employment.
Back then, I thought since I was a HR Manager at my previous company, I could at least get a new job as a HR Manager.
But how wrong I was!
I sent out more than 90 resumes and went on 7 job interviews and none of the companies wanted to hire me.
What was the reason for all the rejections?
It was the 6 years of gap of not working in my employment record.
The interviewers felt that I might not be up to date with the latest HR matters in Malaysia therefore they rejected me.
To be honest, it was very hard for me to accept all the rejections.
I was desperate and even considered taking a HR Executive posting if it was offered to me.
Starting a home business
After my unsuccessful attempt trying to get back into employment, I decided to start my own home based business.
Back then, I thought to myself, “What business should I start?“.
That question lead me to actively looking for home business opportunities online.
My lucky break came in November 2017 when I was introduced to my current business mentor and coach.
From my mentor’s coaching and guidance, I realised that I should not be doing everything by myself.
I was advised to partner with a company that can provide me a platform to support my home business.
That was when I was introduced to BE International.
Back then, I have never heard of the company before and there were a lot of questions floating in my head.
Is BE International a pyramid scheme?
What does the company do?
Who are the company’s founders?
It is even a legal company?
To be honest, when I was first introduced to the BE International business opportunity, one of my main concern was, is it a pyramid scheme?
Again to be honest, I am not really sure what a pyramind scheme looks like. All I know is, it is bad and people loose money when they get into it.
I wasn’t going to be sucked into such an illegal scheme.
I wanted to be sure therefore I did some background research on the company.
The first thing I wanted to know is whether BE International has a license to operate a business in Malaysia.
Doing my research
In this section, I will share with you some of the initial research I did before joining the company.
Does BE International has a license to operate a direct selling business in Malaysia?
Iset out to find the answer.
How do you find the company’s Malaysia direct selling license number?
The direct selling license number is published on the company’s website if you know where to look.
In fact, it was listed on BE International corporate website Contact Us page.
Above is a screen capture of the Contact Us page.
BE International direct selling number was listed next to the company’s registration number.
It’s direct selling license number is AJL932172.
Next, I checked the validity of the company’s direct selling license with the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs or Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna Malaysia (KPDNHEP).
KPDNHEP has a web page for you to check the license validity of all direct selling companies in Malaysia.
I did a search on the direct selling license number and lo and behold, the company holding the license is BE International Marketing Sdn. Bhd.
The license was issued on 8/7/2019 and is still valid up to date.
My online research above has verified that BE International is not a pyramid scheme, rather it is a legitimate company with a valid direct selling license from the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs of Malaysia.
BE International being a Malaysian company has it’s global aspiration.
The company is also a member of reputable direct selling associations such as:
- Direct Selling Association of Malaysia (DSAM)
- Direct Selling Association of Singapore (DSAS)
- Indonesian Direct Selling Association (APLI)
The above is an official statement from BE International.
Trying the Aulora Pants
After I’ve verified BE International is a legit company, I started to do my research on the products of the company.
There were quite a number of product offered but my focus was on the company’s core product which is the Aulora Pants with Kodenshi from Japan.
When I was doing my research, I was amazed that the Aulora Pants can provide so many health benefits to the user.
However, all I wanted was something to help relieve my back pain and leg cramps.
Can the Aulora Pants help to relieve bodily pain?
The person that introduced the Aulora Pants to me said the pants can definitely help.
I was naïve enough to trust a stranger I got to know from Facebook and everything turn out just fine.
The pants did help to relieve my back pain and leg cramps after 2 weeks of wearing it.
My positive results after trying the Aulora Pants gave me some confidence on the product and also on the company.
My initial objective of building my MLM business was very simple.
All I wanted was to make a few hundred ringgit monthly for myself.
I wasn’t working back then because I was a full time housewife and I wanted an income source for myself.
When I was shown the BE International marketing and commission plan, I was told I could make upwards of RM10K to RM20K per month from the business.
How is that possible?
How many pair of the Aulora Pants I have to sell in order to make that amount of money?
I truly believed they were overselling the opportunity to me.
There is no way anyone could be making a 5 figure income from selling women’s legging.
To be more realistic, my expectation was to make around RM1,000 commission per month and I will be very happy.
Do you want to know what happened from then on?
Yes, I was stupid for not believing I could be making 5 figure income per month from the business.
After about 9 months working very hard in the business, I did not make RM1,000 per month from the business, I was actually making 5 figure per month from it.
As per the strict BE IBO rules and regulation, I am not allow to disclose my business income to the public. If you want prove, we can chat privately.
Why focus on the Aulora Pants?
The content in this section is meant for those who are keen to start a network marketing / multi level marketing (MLM) business using the Aulora Pants as their core product.
Why so much focus on the Aulora Pants with Kodenshi?
Please allow me to explain.
If you are planning to start a network marketing business, one of your biggest challenge is to figure out what is the ideal product to sell.
Choosing the right product is the cornerstone to your MLM business success.
When you chose the right product, it will lead you making sale and recruit new distributors into your network.
When your product selection is wrong, it is unlikely you will make any sale or enroll anyone into your business.
If you have never build a MLM business before, can you see how product selection is such a big challenge?
How do you to choose the right product?
In this section, I will share with you a concept call The Blue Ocean Strategy.
The Blue Ocean Strategy is a popular business and marketing book written by Renée Mauborgne and W. Chan Kim.
I will explain the ideas in the book in the form of a story.
There were 2 good friends name Michael and Jeffry.
Both Michael and Jeffry went to the same primary school, secondary school and college together.
When Michael and Jeffrey graduated from college with their diploma at hand, they have the aspiration to start their own business.
Both have some saving in their bank account because they worked part time when they were studying in college.
Michael took out all his saving and started to look for product to sell for his business.
He wanted to sell smartphone accessories because everyone has at least one such device at hand therefore the market is huge.
He decided to to buy the smartphone accessories in bulk from China and sell it locally with a profit.
What Michael has done trying to sell smartphone accessories is equivalent to trying to fish in a Red Ocean.
The characteristics of a red ocean are:
- Compete in an existing market space
- Beat the competition
- Exploit existing demand
- Make the value-cost trade-off
- Align the whole system of a firm’s activities with its strategic choice of differentiation or low cost
The fact is, it is unlikely Michael will succeed in his business due to the nature of red ocean where the competition is very stiff and the only way for him to differentiate with his competitor is to reduce his product selling price.
By being cheaper than his competitor, he will slowly but surely bleed his business until he cannot sustain it anymore.
The blood of every business in the water is turning it red…thus the name Red Ocean.
Is there a better approach to choosing product for a business?
That was what Jeffry thought to himself after seeing the bad experience Michael had with his business.
A better approach to selecting a product is using The Blue Ocean Strategy.
What are the characteristic of a blue ocean?
The characteristics are:
- Create uncontested market space
- Make the competition irrelevant
- Create and capture new demand
- Break the value-cost trade-off
- Align the whole system of a firm’s activities in pursuit of differentiation and low cost
For a better understanding of The Blue Ocean Strategy, check out the 2 minutes video below by Harvard Business Review.
In the video above, it highlighted a case study on Cirque du Soleil using The Blue Ocean Strategy to grow and excel in an industry with limited growth potential.
A compelling aspect of Cirque du Soleil’s success is that it did not win by taking customers from the already shrinking circus industry, which historically catered to children. Instead it created uncontested market space that made the competition irrelevant.Blueoceanstrategy.com
Jeffry realised that to be successful in his business, he has to avoid the red ocean at all cost.
Instead, he has to find a product which is in the blue oceans of uncontested market space and make the competition irrelevant.
How do you find a Blue Ocean product?
The good news is, BE International already has a blue ocean product which is the Aulora Pants with Kodenshi.
The blue ocean product
Before BE International launched the Aulora Pants in Malaysia back in August 2017, there were no far infrared ray (FIR) emitting health and wellness compression pants brand in the market.
BE International created a new FIR emitting pants product category making competition irrelevant.
When you partnered with BE International to build a network marketing business, you automatically have a business platform with a hot selling blue ocean product line.
As an added benefit, your market is not limited to Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Hong Kong and Indonesia, rather you can sell the Aulora Pants to the whole world.
There you have it, I’ve tried my best explaining why the BE International business opportunity is not a pyramid scheme or a scam.
If you’ve already made up your mind and insist it is a pyramid scheme, by all means, go ahead with your conviction. You are entitled to have your point of view.
Do you know why smart people are silly enough to build a multi level marketing (MLM) business by leveraging on the BE International “Golden” Opportunity which is the Aulora Pants?
The reason they do it is because their current profession is not helping them to achieve the dream life that they always wanted.
They saw something in BE International business opportunity…a glimmer of hope for something better.
Thank you for reading this article and I hope it was helpful for you.
