Alan Ho: An Ever Shining Star in the Field of Direct Selling
Majored in Fashion Design at PolyU (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University), Alan Ho is a well-known talented professional designer in the Hong Kong fashion industry and is considered one of the most influential designers in Hong Kong. After Asian financial crisis broke out in 1997, he began to focus his business in the area of direct selling and has achieved positive results. In 2009, he came across Winalite and decided to quit his previous career and restart his business in Winalite. In just a few months, he set a new record of the Winalite Hong Kong Branch and became a Global President’s Advisory Counsel member.
Alan Ho is the first international leader in the gathering of Century Club Member of Rexall Showcase International, the world's youngest Triple Diamond Director, and Chairman of Presidential Board of Advisor at the age of 27. He is the first Royal Diamond President of the Unicity’s Greater China and President of the Advisory Counsel of Unicity Greater China region. He is also the first Diamond of Waiora Asia and has become a Global President's Advisory Counsel member upon joining Winalite for just four months. He was one of the top 50 Global Chinese System leaders in 2004 and Person of the Year in the Chinese Direct Selling industry in 2005.
These are only some of Alan Ho's brilliant achievements in the direct sales industry. Any single one of his achievements is bright enough to light up the road to success. However, he is a spectacular person that integrates numerous achievements but still tirelessly strives forward with an empty cup mindset.
Alan Ho is a passionate person with a contagioius personality who enjoys sharing with people his innate talent of his dedication in direct selling. “Keeping on moving forward with a clear goal is the only secret to success,” he said. “In the Direct selling industry, just work hard and do not ask for the harvest at first. With this consistent approach, a reward will be yielded very soon.”
A gorgeous turn into the Direct selling industry
As a fashion design graduate, Alan Ho made remarkable achievements prior to being engaged in the Direct selling industry. He at one time owned two personal fashion brands and served as an image coordinator and fashion designer of the "Miss Hong Kong" and "Miss Chinese International" beauty pageants. Moreover, he was a well-known fashion and trends columnist for newspapers and magazines. In 1994, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council named him one of the “most representing of Hong Kong fashion designers”.
In 1997, when his fashion career was very prosperous, the Asian Financial Crisis hit Hong Kong severely. Seeing a lot of garment companies, suppliers and large retail department stores in the industry going bankrupt in succession, Alan Ho had a lot of mixed emotions. In traditional industries, the greater the investment, the greater the risk. However, the return is not always proportional to the investment. With deep convictions about this, Alan Ho focused his attention on the direct selling sector of small investment, big returns, and low risk.
The Direct selling industry was not completely foreign to Alan Ho. His mother had been engaged in direct selling for a long time. When Alan Ho was still a student, the goods he and his family consumed at home were direct selling products. At first he thought direct selling was only a job suitable for housewives, but he later met many people within the industry. After getting to know their stories, Alan Ho realized that many ordinary people, even with limited business qualifications, experience, background, made use of the Direct selling stage to earn extraordinary income and made brilliant achievements through their own efforts.
With the support from his family, Alan Ho joined the United States Rexall Showcase International and ran the direct selling market with a boss's mentality, professional attitude, and operation mode of enterprise. He turned direct selling ventures into huge multinational companies by working hard and dedicating himself to the cause. There was not a shortage of celebrities, doctors, lawyers and accountants in Hong Kong among his cooperators. A year later, he became a market leader with the best marketing achievements in the direct selling company he worked for.
"I am grateful for the complete support from my parents, especially my mother. She helped me understand the industry thoroughly. Facts speak louder than words. The results prove that my choice was right," Alan Ho said with a smile and in high spirits, with his eyes expressing supreme calmness and intelligence.
Discover the Winalite path to resplendence
"In fact, I cherish what I have very much. In the past 14 years, I worked for three United States Direct selling companies, but in cooperation with the same boss. I was very content with my position within these companies. However, in early 2009, I met Ms Hu again in Guangzhou. She recommended Winalite to me. Since then, Chairman Vincent Chen had been in close contact with me and invited me to participate in the Company's Global Congress and G.I.C.A Global Leaders Training...”
" I am moved.... In only a few years, he has donated funds and materials valued over several billion RMB and promised to donate 100 million Yuan and build 1000 Hope Primary Schools in his lifetime. In only 3 years, Winalite has achieved sales of over 10 billion RMB and successfully developed its market plan in 83 countries and regions, which is an unprecedented developmental achievement in the global Direct selling industry. Moreover, Chairman Vincent Chen voiced the ambitious goal of ‘becoming No.1 of China in 5 years and No. 1 in the World in 10 years’. So far, I have never met a boss with such an ambition and a spirit in this industry. The countless brilliant achievements by Winalite make me believe that Chairman Vincent Chen’s dream is destined to become a reality!”
“In rational analysis, with female physiological products as its flagship products, Winalite has great development potential in the global market. A product with an anion chip patented in 169 countries has an absolute advantage. There are also other new technology products with great market potentials, and the company’s compensation plan is also very attractive to talented salespersons. Moreover, the Success Unlimited System is a simple system that can easily be taught, learnt, and duplicated. In addition, Winalite also has a group of masters like Willie Lung and Zhao Xiaofei who are providing services for the Winaliters to work more easily, systematically and professionally. Wouldn’t still anyone refuse such a good business opportunity?”
Through candid communication with Chairman Vincent Chen and Ms Jean Hu and multiple investigations into Winalite International, Alan Ho finally decided to give up his safe, prosperous business in order to make a fresh start with Winalite.
In this regard, Alan Ho thoroughly understood the implications of his decision. He said, "Just like climbing a mountain, no matter how high up one mountain you can climb, you have to go back down in order to conquer another mountain with an even higher peak.” This is his so-called "return-to-zero mindset."
For more than a decade, Alan Ho witnessed many people's rapid climbs and falls in this industry and fully understands the developing laws of the industry. He believes that visions are necessary for the long-term success in the direct selling business. We shall strive to make progress. An individual short-term success is not a real success. A temporary success is not a true success. Only with a solid foundation and the strength of a team may we earn for real and continued success. Moreover, even if a bigger leader has shown us the way, we have to make it our own way to reach our life goals eventually.
In his team, with a grateful heart, Alan Ho insists on not being impartial while making decisions. To win people by virtue, he believes that he must make himself serve as an example and reflect himself frequently. He values all team members as shareholders and thinks the success of the whole team is the real success. Only when all of the team members work hard together will real success be achieved. When his team members are excited by their achievements, he feels even happier than they do. "I am happy not only because I help them achieve financial freedom. I change their lives so that they can experience success and have a more independent mindset. That's my real satisfaction..."
With a strong sense of purpose, Alan Ho goes all out in doing everything. The choice of joining Winalite is no exception. What he wants is not giving a try, but doing the best. Already with flying colours in only a few months, he is confident in his ability to, with his partners at his side, continue on the path to resplendence through the platform of Winalite.
