Focus on the Future – Nancy Siatyee & Kevin Kim
Founders Diamond | New York
Nancy Siatyee and her husband, Kevin Kim, had long dreamed of career independence. As a teenager growing up in Malaysia, Nancy knew she wanted to work for herself. Kevin had a similar goal and started the couple’s AMWAY ™ business, while still managing a Chinese restaurant full time.
During a visit to Amway headquarters in Ada, Michigan, for the company’s 35th anniversary celebration, Nancy met a diverse group of Amway Independent Business Owners. They encouraged her and provided the motivation to really engage and grow the couple’s business. Upon returning home, Nancy and Kevin acted on the advice and encouragement they received. They worked hard, persevered, and soon had a new Ruby pin to show for their efforts! Finally the dream Nancy had held for so long, started to take shape in reality.
Their dream job lets Kevin and Nancy spend time with their 12-year-old son, Victor. Together they have traveled the world, hosted family gatherings, and tuned in to basketball, football, and soccer matches. Nancy loves cooking with iCook® Cookware to prepare healthy meals for her family and friends, including curried pork, chicken, shrimp, and tofu dishes.
In light of today’s troubled economy, Nancy is eager to share the AMWAY business opportunity with others. “We encourage them to look at their future and what that means to their family and their retirement,” she says.
“There are people who are laid off from their jobs, and they are seriously looking at what the AMWAY business opportunity can offer them,” Kevin says. I hope that the people who join us in this business will be as successful if not more successful than we are.”
The couple claims hard work and persistence are important attributes. Everything we do is aimed toward helping ourselves and others reach their goals and dreams,” says Kevin.
While working hard to build their business, Kevin and Nancy are also nurturing the future of their family, encouraging son Victor to take part. “If you ask him what he wants to do in the future,” says Nancy, “he’ll say he wants to become an Amway Independent Business Owner.”
