My Journey into Tropic

I started to use Tropic products two years ago and fell in love with them from the moment I tried the travel set!

I soon got a collection of the skin care and then gradually replaced my make up as I knew two Ambassadors selling Tropic so tried to support them both.

The first Tropic roadshow came to Norwich, and of course I went along to learn a bit more about this lovely company.

Then this year’s roadshow in January was right near were I live so I went along again, and I was so inspired by the Ambassadors who sat on stage telling their stories on why they had become Ambassadors and why they loved there jobs so much.

It was while I sat listening that I decided that I could become an Ambassador as I loved the products and the whole ethos behind the brand.  Susie Ma (the Founder) is an inspiration, and she has a real passion for her products.  I knew I would feel confident enough to sell to my family and friends, and I am a lady who loves pampering, so thought it would be a great job for me!

I went to my training meeting and ordered my kit, and couldn’t wait for it to arrive.  In the meantime I was contacting people and telling them what I was going to be doing, and inviting them to my launch party, and asking if they would be interested in hosting a pamper for me, or having a facial done so I could get some practice in before my launch party.

People were happy to support me and help; even the people who had never taken care of their skin before, or who didn’t have the money to spend.  Some of these ladies have now fallen in love with Tropic and are becoming regular customers, although I’m not allowed to tell their husbands!

I had my launch party which was a great success, and did my first pamper, and was loving my new career.  I was hitting my leap aheads and sailing along nicely.  I had my heart set on getting the white bag to put all my kit in, and had 30 days to achieve this, but then we had the bad snow week and my hostess cancelled her pamper the day before, and to say I wasn’t disappointed would be a lie (but I also understood why).

I had two days to hit my final target as I really wanted that bag – I then pleaded and begged, gave 10% discounts to get that bag I’d set my heart on!

I got some orders and bought a Deluxe Skincare Collection myself, and it was while I was putting the order through the system crashed (I could have sworn) – thinking it was my device, I then turned on another IPad I have and that was playing up too.

Thinking this is not meant to be and my time was running out, as I had about 4 hours to get this ordered, I messaged my Manager Nicola, but knew she was doing an online event herself so she may not get back to me.  But she did (bless her) and she found out the system had crashed and no one could get orders through either – I was not alone and I felt I had the support of my Manager and I knew that everything would be OK.

Eventually the system was back up and running my order was put through and I hit my target and got my bag, plus my new products for free!

So far it’s been an amazing start to my new business and I’m getting reorders and new customers, and pamper party’s are steady.  I’m loving having my home full of lovely Tropic products and feeling fulfilled from introducing them to other people so they can enjoy them too!

For HER, the Revolutionary New Women’s Business, Body and Life Online Chat Show!

For HER is an online group focused around issues affecting women, in business, body and life, and is the home of the bi-weekly online chat show, where women discuss their viewpoints and opinions on women-related topics.

Serena Fordham, our Founder and the show’s host, is on a mission to support people to overcome the daily challenges that they are facing and to inspire women to follow their dreams, in terms of personal life, and their careers.

She knows only too well, through her own experiences and those of close friends, how hard some people can find getting from one day to the next, let alone chasing the things that feel too far out of reach.

What is an online chat show I hear you ask? Well, the specifics of For HER are as follows:

  • Different topic discussed bi-weekly – focused on business, body and life (including aspects of meditation, spiritualism and wellbeing)
  • Live with a guest to give different viewpoints, and audience the opportunity to comment and join the conversation
  • Dedicated YouTube channel so you can catch up afterwards if you can’t watch live
  • Exclusive offers and discounts offered by experts
  • Specialist coaching and mentoring offered by experts
  • Raising awareness of women’s groups and charities to help, guide and support
  • Connecting women together to share viewpoints and to support, empower, inspire and lift each other up!

The group and chat show intend to raise and expose an array of issues affecting women in all aspects of their life, as well as to raise awareness of charities and social enterprise projects that can help and support women.
With a lot of business education from industry experts, as well as exposure of positive body image campaigners, this group and chat show has something for every woman – no matter their background, age, race, size, shape, religion, etc, and all views are welcome, the only rule is to respect
that we are all different so have different opinions!

The idea of the For HER community is to keep the conversations from the chat show going so that if women are struggling to keep going right now, they have the assurance that they are not alone.

There are people who care and can help, but asking for help isn’t always easy. That’s where something like this group and the show comes in, as women can watch and listen, and be supported and inspired without having to say anything until they are ready.

Serena and her team are urging all women to be involved, and if you feel you need some encouragement right now, or you’d love to offer the hand of support to others, come and watch the show and join in the conversations

A conference taking place on International Women’s Day (8th March) will also support the aims of For HER. Get tickets and found out more
