In The Spotlight: Terrence Tey

How did you get started in the business?
I needed a breakthrough in my career and a platform to pursue goals that were very dear to me. They were to provide the best lifestyle for my family – my family is my life and the strongest drive for me to take this step – and having the financial liberty to make any dream purchase I wanted.
 
What has your journey within the business been like so far?

1.    Exciting – I greatly anticipate learning new things every day.
2.    Fun – my peers are always very encouraging. I love the vibrancy of the team, as well as the constant encouragement from everyone. In addition, there is no seniority in this business and everyone treats each other like family.
3.    Fulfilling – I love seeing the promotions and development of my people.
4.    Satisfying – I am able to achieve my goals and see my people achieving their own goals, under my guidance but through their own capabilities.
 
What has been your biggest achievement so far?
Definitely clinching the Owner and Marketing Office of the Year award for the third consecutive year!
I am jubilant and appreciative of the organisations’ hard work in achieving this feat. I know it is not easy to consistently exceed expectations, and maintain persistence in obtaining such a result.
 
What advice would you give to someone starting their journey with the business?
Always dare to think big. Believe that you can do it and remember if no one laughs at your goals, that means your goals are not big enough.
 
Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?
I see myself promoting three vice presidents and having 3,000 field representatives across the world.

What are your plans for the future?
Business goals – I am extremely grateful of the opportunity given to me when I joined this business in 2009 and I hope to pass on the same opportunity to as many people as possible, so that they can see the same light as I did.

Personal goals – I want to travel with my wife to 100 countries over the next 10 years and spend quality time with my family. To me, having the freedom to enjoy moments with my loved ones is very important and that is why I strive to exceed expectations every single time.
 
What are you hoping to accomplish by the end of the year?
I want to have a headcount of 600 in my organisation and be promoted to vice president.
 
How do you relax away from the office?
By indulging in my favourite pastimes! Cars intrigue me a lot, and many can vouch for that!
