Mediocracy: Never An Option – Partha & Ritu Bhanja
Partha & Ritu Bhanja, Founders Platinum, started business in November 2001, Broadview Heights, OH. As long as Partha and Ritu can remember, they’ve shared an ability to dream together: Partha with his vision, and Ritu with her faith. They immigrated years ago with a dream of success, two suitcases, and about enough money to survive for a week.
Both certified as occupational therapists, Partha and Ritu found jobs right away. With other no friends or relatives to lean on, they consider it an even bigger blessing to have met their sponsors when they did – just two months later.
Apart from mentoring Partha and Ritu in AMWAY™ business, their uplines helped them settle in and find essentials such as housing, a car, and insurance. “In this business every one gets free business mentoring: we received much more than that,” explains Partha.
Ritu adds, “We met our uplines in the grocery store. At first, we liked the people more than the business.” After exceeding their initial goals, the couple realized how this business could improve their lifestyle and give them more time for their family.
Ritu quit her job to be a full-time mom to their kids Advit (8) and Abhimanyu (2). A big believer in planning and organization, she explains the benefits of managing one’s own schedule, “I’m able to fit my business duties around our family’s schedule and I work off my ‘to do list’ when kids are at school or sleeping. My husband and I spend valuable time together talking about our business or just watching a good movie.”
Dreaming big, helping others think out of the box, and staying focused are just a few of Partha’s strengths: “I think of our business 24-hours a day. I’m passionate about it!” To downlines he says, “Never quit. If we stay the course; our lives can change.”
Ritu’s final words: “Being in this business has taught me to never accept mediocrity, to dream big, and follow my husband’s lead. We’re capable of achieving what others have achieved when we dream it and do it together.”
