We would like to congratulate Jacqueline Foong & Daniel Kong who recently reached a new UnFranchise Level – Master Coordinator!
“We have been UnFranchise Owners for almost one and a half years. We had to fly a lot to Sydney and Melbourne from QLD for GMTSS events when we started. We knew we had to become the resource for QLD. We are now Category 1 Speakers within Market Australia! We were brought up by GMTSS, so it’s time to give back and inject Market Australia DNA into other UFOs. We can’t wait to help more people to achieve time freedom and ongoing income.”
How long have you been in the business?
We have been in this business for almost one and a half years. It has been an exciting journey so far!
Why did you start this business?
It was I, Jacqueline, who first heard about this business when she went back to Malaysia. I was first attracted by the product (Isotonix® Digestive Enzyme) when meeting an aunty from church — her mum’s friend (who is our sponsor) — and then heard about the Plan. After coming back to Brisbane, I told Daniel about it, and he was against it. After some prayers, Daniel allowed me to start the business. Eventually, Daniel became interested after a week or two of observing what I was doing. We are both very seriously managing this business now.
We started this business so that we can spend more time with our parents, future kids and be more financially secure. We have always wonder what would happen if something happened to us and we no longer are able to work. Where would the money come from? At the same time, no work means no income. We need to build this business before we need it! We want to be able to help more people, and it’s a joy being able to help people through this business — health, beauty, lifestyle, financial and time freedom and so much more!
Outside of being an UnFranchise Owner, what is your occupation? If you are a full-time Distributor, when did you make the transition from the 9-5 to being a full-time entrepreneur?
I am a young housewife without a child yet. Daniel currently works full-time as an Occupational Therapist (OT) and has been doing that for the past seven years. Daniel hopes to transition from his full-time OT job to full-time entrepreneur within a year.
Tell us about your family.
We are still a small family of two, as we just got married in July 2018. We hope to grow our family soon after we hit our Professional Coordinator UnFranchise Level.
What do you and your family like to do for fun/recreation?
We both enjoy listening to music and watching movies/Korean variety shows. Our most recent Favourite is “The Great Escape” where a few Korean celebs have to try and escape safely from a locked room. We also enjoy singing, even though we haven’t been able to do this as much these days.
Tell us about your lifestyle.
Our weekends are spent at church. Monday to Friday, Daniel works full-time during the day, while I work from home. We both continue to manage this business until late at night after Daniel comes home from work. Some sacrifices had to be made to manage this business, especially leisure and sleep time. Do we want to spend 45 years of our life working for someone else’s success? or two to three years for our own?
What are some of your personal goals?
Daniel wants to change his full-time job into part-time next year. We want to witness and accompany our future kids growing up. We would also like to take our family members for a family trip, with us paying all expenses, in two years’ time. We will also continue to help others in need and share the business and products with love.
What are some of your business goals?
We would like to attend Market America’s International Convention next year. It is also our goal to have at least 20 Executive Coordinators within two years, and help partners succeed and achieve Master UFO!
If you could give three key points to help share the business and what it’s done for you, what would they be?
1) Believe in Market Australia and believe that you will succeed.
2) Listen and follow what your sponsor and leaders share.
3) Plug in to the GMTSS and attend all trainings, events and convention; get your tickets if you haven’t.
What is your best moment, so far, with Market Australia and the business?
Our best moments have been seeing our partners grow and earn commissions! We also enjoyed hearing from different UFOs who attended our New UnFranchise Owner Training and Basic 5; they said they were very grateful and inspired after those events!
How has the GMTSS helped build your business?
We like how the GMTSS exists in all the markets of our Asia-Pacific region. We have partners based in Malaysia and Singapore, and they are able to attend trainings exactly what we have here in Australia; everyone receives the same training! Without the GMTSS, our team would not have been able to grow as quick. A lot of times, it’s hard for partners to listen repeatedly to the same leader. However, with the GMTSS, partners can feel fresh and be able to leverage on the amazing power of the GMTS.
What’s your favourite Market Australia product and why?
This is a tough question, as we love all of them. We try as many new products as we can all the time, while converting spending to earning! If we really have to choose one, it’s Isotonix Digestive Enzymes because that is the one that started us on this business.
Is there anyone you would like to thank for contributing to your success?
First and foremost, we thank God for all that has happened! We also want to thank our sponsor Rebecca for introducing this business to us. There are several senior partners we would like to thank — Winnie (Taiwan) and our senior business partners. Without their support and encouragement, we would not have been able to come this far. We also want to thank our family for supporting us. And our team of partners who are on this wonderful, exciting journey with us. See you at the top!
