Japanese Takeaways…

Recently the 2017 Nikken Team Kaizen members were rewarded for qualifying as Active Wellness entrepreneurs with a luxury trip to Japan. Here is what Jon and Nicki Edgell, Platinum Consultants from the UK, wrote about their memorable experience.

“In addition to the regular compensation plan Nikken offers extra incentives to Consultants. One of these has just seen us take part in an all expenses paid Team Kaizen trip to Japan, the original home of Nikken.

Although Nikken Inc. now has its HQ in the US the company aims to visit Japan every few years in order to honor its formation and to give Consultants a chance to experience Japanese culture and the people’s philosophy of service. This was certainly the case where we were constantly humbled by the people’s helpfulness and politeness everywhere we went. At each hotel on the tour lines of staff would stand and bow. If we stopped for a moment and looked confusingly at a metro map a young student with perfect English would offer help. Tokyo is preparing for the Olympics in 2020 and the people’s friendliness and the efficiency of their transport systems will ensure a successful event.

This trip, as well as various other annual events, is also a chance to reconnect with old colleagues and meet new friends, to revive one’s purpose, to get inspired and set intentions for the year ahead. To be surrounded by so many positive and successful partners serves to propel you on to the next level of your Nikken journey. Big decisions are made at these big events.

The trip was primarily a holiday and a reward for good work but there are inevitably chances to talk business and share best practices. By forging lasting relationships with international colleagues chances for collaboration and sharing business arise.

The network marketing model is one of collaborative entrepreneurship. Although we all have our own teams, by sharing information about what works well the global Nikken family is able to “grow the overall size of the pie”. In practice this translates, for example, to a colleague in Canada passing an enquiry from a UK resident to us or a Mexican business leader appearing on one of our webinars to pass on knowledge and inspiration to our team.

Another takeaway from the trip was the number of different ways one can be successful at the Nikken business – for instance through online retail or through building a network, or a combination of both. The Nikken business leaders are drawn from all sorts of different characters – it is certainly not the case that you have to be an outgoing extrovert in the stereotypical salesman mold.

Thank you Nikken for the trip of a lifetime!”

CONGRATULATIONS to Kazuo Sakita, Heloisa Checon, Inno Moiron and Maria Elena Santome from Spain for winning the April Nikken Now Session. An extra special congratulations to Maria Elena Santome for setting 10 appointments in 30 minutes. WOW!!! This activity is proving to be a very successful experience across Europe.

We have again established hundreds of appointments for presentations in just 30 minutes. Who can dispute the power of this activity?

The Nikken Now Session in May will be on the 22nd at the usual times and on the usual numbers. Please check MyNikken for more details. This will be the last one that we host as a company as we now are seeing more leaders establishing their own schedule of Nikken Now Sessions with their teams. This of course is the ideal. If you want your business to grow – start with this activity. If you want our support in your sessions, please just let me know and we would be happy to help where we can.

Thank you to you both for your great example with this.

It really does create excitement and energy in the team.

Thank you to all that participate and please lets start now creating our own Sessions with our teams.
