After 10 years in the Philippines, global beauty and wellness direct-selling company Nu Skin has 7,000 active distributors in its sales force.
This is the strength behind the companyâ€™s over $1 billion in sales and operations in 48 markets, including the Philippines.
Melisa Tantoco-Quijano, Nu Skinâ€™s president for Southeast Asia, says distributors in the country come from all walks of life but have one thing in commonâ€”a fervent passion for entrepreneurship and a goal to succeed.
â€œNu Skin is not just looking for numbers. We want entrepreneurs who are committed to making their businesses succeed and who believe in the companyâ€™s products,â€ she says.
Quijano says it is also impressive that Nu Skin has a notable number of male distributors, a Philippine phenomenon.
She explains that this means being a distributor is not just a â€œsideline,â€ as direct selling is traditionally looked at, but a regular source of income for the familyâ€™s breadwinner.
