When a Business Profession leads to Community Creating and Travel Experiences

Okinawa, Japan, Diamond Retreat 2024

First things first, I am not there yet, but working on it! The pictures are from my adopted European Mentor Group. I also have direct USA Mentors. However, as I live in London, and I am a German citizen, I identify more with the Europeans.

I spent some time with them in Austria, Vienna, beginning of this year (2024). So, they are very special to me. 

Whilst principally the building of the global community is the same, clearly there are some regional differences between the USA, Europe, Asia, Australia, Middle East, South America and Africa in which the company I partner with, is represented. My local community is obviously the European one.

The pictures are from the 2024 Diamond Retreat in Japan, at the newest opening of a farm in Okinawa. The retreat is an all expenses paid trip. The pictures serve as an inspiration of what is possible!

Why is this so special? Because these are ordinary people from all walks of life. No fancy academic backgrounds, although some do have a Dr. PhD. title, but the majority are just everyday folk from all sorts of jobs or professions who glimpsed the vision of making a difference in the lives of other people, and then partnered together. People who realised that only if we link arms and lift each other up, will we all win.

It is servant leadership in action! It has often been said that Network Marketing, or MLM, is the best business model for the future, and I agree with it. However, there is a caveat: it is not for everybody, and it is not for those who believe that it is a get rich quick and easy industry. Rather, it is an industry of 'blood-sweat-and-tears', of extremely hard work and full of sacrifices. 
To build a team of Diamonds (such as these pictures show) requires at times over 80+ hours of hard work during the week, being there for others, celebrating together, but also crying and weeping together, stumbling, failing and getting back up again, and never giving up. 

The result is a tight community, lasting friendships, where people have each others back, where people see the potential in others, and will not rest until each one, who is willing to fight the good fight, is out of their own limiting believes and personal trauma dungeon rising up again to fly and soar high! 

Yes, every single person is responsible for their own business, nobody is building it for you! Nobody is telling you what to do or when, you don't have a rota or work shifts, you are not given a job schedule, or have your boss or manager breathe down your neck; you are not paid by the hour (in fact, at the beginning you are likely not being paid at all, just investing in your own personal potential). There is no fear or dread that you might get the sack if you don't perform, there is no fear or dread that a colleague might be envious or jealous of your work and push you aside, there is no ego bullying. You have total freedom to do, or not do, whatever and whenever in your own business, it is YOUR business. You are your own boss. 

You can choose to treat your business as a hobby, or work extremely hard, it is entirely up to you. However, Network Marketing is entirely performance related, you are not paid by the hour, but paid in alignment with how many people in your team you help so that they can live a better life, too.

The picture here is of my adopted European Royal Crown Diamond Leadership couple, the ones I spent time with in Austria beginning of the year.

Role models come to mind! During the many trips in their car and the invaluable conversations we had, I used this analogy of how I view Vijay and Ulli (RCD couple here on this pic):   imagine a top ranking military Field Marshal (FM) who sees one of his lowest ranking soldiers struggling, without a second thought this FM is down on his hands and knees in the mud and dirt of an uncomfortable trench right next to his struggling soldier, and keeps on encouraging them, "You can do it! I believe in you! Here are some smart ways you can grow and better yourself! There is hope, keep going" This is exactly how I experienced this Royal Crown Diamond couple. 

They are transformational leaders who regard every one of their partners on the same eye-level. There are no hierarchical ego driven motives, just pure and simple a servant leadership with the intention to walk beside everyone who is willing to put the work in! .... These are precisely my values which I also choose to adhere to with my team and my business partners!

Will you be courageous enough to embark on this type of business adventure? The cost is high, the stakes are high, there are absolutely no guarantees, but the rewards, the residual income, the joy, the lasting friendships and community are even higher!

Bright blessings,

                 P.S. Even more so, will you want to experience those all expenses paid trips to various parts of the world? So far this year (2024), and it's only just April, there were Diamond trips to Dubai, and now Okinawa. There are many trips even on the way to Diamond! You get to be with a community of like-minded people who have become your friends whilst experiencing the good life on various continents and different interesting countries. I think that is worth going out of one's way to help others, to help families experience a better life, too
