Read VFP Joseph Bismark’s latest blog post “The Importance of Innovation”

From VFP Joseph Bismark’s latest blogpost “The Importance of Innovation“:

Innovate or die. I’m sure you’ve heard this phrase. It’s advice I agree wholeheartedly with. Why is it so important though?

The market now is constantly evolving. Not only do businesses need to survive and thrive with advanced technology, they need to ensure they are always ahead of the pack.

An example of a good innovator is Steve Jobs. He did not invent the computer or the mobile phone but he definitely revolutionised technology. It’s almost like being a chef. You mix and match raw ingredients and invent a brand new dish. That’s my mantra in business. I don’t think it’s necessary to create something new, but rather reinvent something that is unique and fresh.

Women Empowerment in “Have the Courage to Be Yourself” at Ankara, Turkey

Ladies! Were you there when “Have the Courage to Be Yourself” happened in Ankara, Turkey last July 15? Here are some photos and a report of what happened!

From the post-event report of “Have the Courage to Be Yourself”:

 

Following the footprints of “I’m Alive” with VP Donna Imson, “Have the Courage to Be Yourself” aims to empower and encourage women in terms of achieving financial freedom. Five hundred women from all over Turkey gathered in the capital of Turkey, Ankara.  The event was organized with 25 female in-service leaders under the leadership of VL Sara Baheri Rad. Before the event, the core in-service group made a camp with Sara Baheri Rad for one week in Ankara.

Graced by VC Sabah Buqasmi, “Have the Courage to Be Yourself” started with a fantastic crowd all eager to a whole day of learning and motivation. The women filled the hall to the brim, almost bursting at the seams. The event began with a speech about the impacts and benefits of Third Wave and Network Marketing Industry on women.

Then, Mr. İbrahim Akça from QNet Promotion went on the floor and talked about the future of QNet Promotion.  There was also an IR as a guest in the event, the team captain of National Female Ice-Hockey Team, Sinem Doğu. She spoke about her challenges in her sports career.  The participants got so excited by her story.

But mostly, the venue was full of emotions when VC Sabah came up on the stage and made a speech on her journey in QNet.  The crowd was so amazed by her experience and her story that they did not let VC Sabah leave at the end of the meeting. Later on, the big crowd connected with VP Donna Imson on the phone just to let her know there are 500 women alive in there. During the phone call, they all opened a big flag of Turkey and 500 women made a promise to make Turkey the best market. Sara Baheri Rad made a commitment to make the next event with 1000 women.  And then, the crowd heard VP Donna Imson’s tears of happiness.

In the event, the final speech belonged to Sara Baheri Rad. She gave presents to some networkers, who are strong examples in the business.  And, she invited two mothers on the stage to thank them by presenting flowers.  At the end of her motivational speech, VC Sabah and the in-service group took the stage and read ‘Have the Courage to Be Yourself Manifest 2012’, and everyone in the venue promised to have the courage to be themselves.   The women of “Have the Courage to Be Yourself” cried, laughed so hard, danced, celebrated their femininity, shared very precious moments all day long, and decided to achieve financial freedom.
