William Ng and Carey Chen*
The Perfect Opportunity – When William Ng first decided he wanted to start an Amway™ business, Carey admits she tried to talk him out of it. “I thought, why is he doing this? He had a good job and was earning a nice income.”
But to William, working at a bank 50 to 60 hours a week, living paycheck to paycheck wasn’t really living. “I wanted to be an entrepreneur,” he says.
Low cost, low risk
William had moved to the United States from Malaysia. Another Malaysian immigrant re-introduced him to the opportunity, which he remembered hearing about from his mother when he was a boy. As he learned more, he felt it was the perfect opportunity. “Minimal start-up costs, no rent or overhead, and everything is backed by Amway,” he states. “And it doesn’t matter what your background is, how much education you’ve had – the potential is the same for everyone.”
With a growing family, including a new baby, William had a passion to succeed at his new endeavor, and he wasn’t deterred by rejection. In fact, he says, “Rejection is a very normal part of this business.”
I always wanted to have my own business. Now I’m CEO and president. – William Ng
Excellent role model
To overcome it – and any other obstacles – he urges new IBOs to take advantage of the help offered by their mentors, just as he did. “I had a wonderful role model, and I try to be a good role model myself. Your mentors are happy to help you because they want to see you grow, they want you to be successful,” he says. “We treat each other like family, and that’s not how it is in a traditional business.”
William feels the possibilities are bigger than ever with Amway. “There are so many people in the world who are looking for more in life,” he says. “You have a chance to help them succeed because that’s what this business is all about.”
He tells new IBOs that they should expect to work hard, and that to achieve their goals and dreams, there may be some sacrifices involved. “Nothing is for free,” he says. So, for instance, you may have to give up some leisure activities when you’re building the business. “But it’s well worth the effort,” he states.
Carey agrees. “Now we both have time with our little boy and to do the things we want to do as a family,” she says. And she nods approvingly when William says, “After all, you only live once.”
