She is a gal from Hungary and he is a guy from Singapore. What were the chances that one day they will find passion in the same business and end up working towards the same goal while supporting and helping each other. Life truly is a mystery and Helga and Louis’s story proves that when we are going towards our goal deliberately, making the right decisions we will reach success. Sometimes we need to sacrifice a lot, and we will feel lost a couple times during our journey but going to the right direction can result in many wonderful things, including love, success, and freedom. Let’s unfold this amazing couple’s success story, I am sure many of us can learn from it!!!!
Q1: Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions. I know you two are very busy, working on your business, going to events, and exploring the world. What is the next exciting upcoming event in your lives?
Helga: We just attended our company launch party at Sentosa Beach, Singapore. Five hard working years in the region finally been paid off! We are opening up our Asian headquarter. Thousands of us were flying in from different parts of the world just to celebrate this huge milestone. Yesterday we attended our corporate office visit tour in Suntec City; so these days are very important in our lives! ☺ Also we look forward going to the US in January, 2016.
Louis: It will be January 2016. Looking forward to a Dreamtrip to Orlando Florida + United 2016 with Helga. I have never been to America before. It will be exciting.
Q2: When you were a little child, what did you want to be growing up?
H: Definitely an astronaut; then a secret agent, a lawyer and at the end of the day I always dreamed of becoming a beauty queen. LOL
L: I wanted to be an actor.
Q3: What is your degree/education in?
H: I graduated in Business Administration & Management from Budapest University of Technology & Economics. I also studied International Business as an Erasmus exchange student in Germany.
L: I got my diploma in Electronic, Computer & Communication Engineering.
Q4: Can you please tell us more about what you do now and why you chose the company you are with?
H: I am helping others to achieve their dreams in life. Might sound cheesy/corny, but its true. Leading by example that if they believe in themselves they literally can achieve anything in life they ever dreamed of!
Actually a funny thing: I did not choose or looked for the company, the company found me! At that time I was unemployed and were looking for a position that I really like doing, fit to my characteristic and also fulfill my desires in life.
I fell in love with the vision when first time been introduced to the platform. Found a very strong why, and how personally want to participate in the success the company is achieving. I seen a huge potential in it and simple did not want to give a miss to an opportunity of a lifetime!
L: Currently I am a full-time travel vacationist with WorldVentures. I was looking for an additional source of income. When I saw WorldVentures, I decided to seize the opportunity. Travel speaks to the whole world. That is massive!
Q5: You are one couple but building your own separate businesses. How can you help each other?
H: With a lot of things actually. Louis was involved in the business one month before me, but he put more effort into it so it keeps me motivated when I see what can be achieved in such short period of time. His experiences and see his day to day attitude also put my standards into a higher level
L: We constantly confide in each other, sharing our views and ideas with each other about our business.
Q6: Did you always have support from your friends and families? If no, what helped you to keep going forward?
H: Not really… My dad is my biggest “dreamstealer”. I do respect his opinion and he does want the best for me, but because we are so different and living a very different lifestyle he just does not get it; as a dad he certainly wants security to his daughter. Conversations with him sometimes get very tough and he makes me cry…
Good thing, I already built up enough confidence so with or without his support I know I can succeed and the time will prove me right. At the end of the day they want me to be happy, and that I already proved to them ☺.
My past experiences and achievements give me enough motivation, belief and energy to keep going. My desire to succeed and have a better life also kept me going in rough times.
My current business partners became very close to me and are part of my life as friends and definitely are there for me! It’s an amazing support system and environment that honestly everyone should experience at least once in a lifetime, or even just for a day!
L: Yes and No. My parents are supportive in whatever I do, whereas there are dreamstealers out there or people who do not believe in themselves. What kept me going forward is my goal towards financial freedom. There is no plan B. International Marketing Director or nothing.
Q7: Have you ever had to make a big sacrifice to stay in this business and if it is not too personal, would you share it with us?
H: I had to. I moved to a country where I do not even speak the language and did not know a single person, but I believed it will very well serve me in the long run both personally and in the business.
Biggest sacrifice I had to do is relates to my previous answer. My family was expecting me moving back home to Hungary after living a year in Thailand, they did not see my results and what exactly I am doing in Thailand or why I am here. So I kinda sacrificed my family life for my business goals. On the other hand love found me here in Asia so we are working to deepen our relationship for a happily married family life.
L: 😎 I wont say it was really a sacrifice but I had to sell off my car as my “job” now doesnt require it. My team mates were laughing at me as I was taking the plane more often than the times I drove.
Q8: Helga you had a very interesting journey in the past couple years. You have traveled a lot, discovered new places…What kept you moving?
H: My desire. After leaving banking industry I knew I really wanted to find my purpose in life but I really didn’t know what I really wanted to do for a living. So all I did was, I followed my heart. That journey brought me back to the US and multiple other countries in Africa and Asia.
Q9: How many countries did you have the fortune to visit and what is your most favorite place ever?
H: Aah, too many to list of… Really! Each and any of the places I visited I cherish fondly memories so it’s very hard to pick any. I truly love my first ever Asian Dreamtrip experiences in Angkor Wat, Cambodia but also our recent trip to Koh Tao with Louis was something taken with me forever!
L: I lost track of the number of times I travelled but my most memorable trip to date has to be a Dreamtrip to Santorini in Greece.I have never flew before in my life. That gives you an idea that i haven’t travelled at all before WorldVentures. But ever since joining the company, I am constantly traveling in and out of Singapore almost every single month.
Q10: Louis, I have heard many wonderful things about you and I know you have reached great success at a very young age. Congratulations, can you please tell us your secret formula?:)
L: Making Invitations, SMP (Show more people), attend training events and travel! Be an action taker. Act upon it immediately. Take massive action and go all out. Whatever we do in anything is what we do in everything. We only got one life to live. Its now or never. Hesitation and limited self-belief kill opportunities.
Q11: Have you ever felt like giving up? What kept you motivated?
H: I did question myself sometimes… But never felt like giving up.
L: Nope. Giving up never came across my mind. Only one direction towards International Marketing Director and there is no Plan B. My motivation is purely financial freedom. So that my family gets to live a different life and dreams that are unfulfilled to date will come to pass in their time.
Q12: Were you ever scared of the word “no”?
H: This word just simply does not exist in my dictionary. Whenever I am facing issues or hardships I always ask myself: “What else can I wish for? If not WV then what?” That keeps me grounded in finding a solution instead of focusing on the situation. Hard times are completely okay and only are there for a breakthrough and grow.
L: I love the word “No”. It saves me time and helps me move forward. We are constantly sorting out and looking for the right people.
Q13: Do you ever run into people who have never believed in you and you proved them wrong? How does that feel?
H: I think there are always people out there that do not believe in you; but I never took it personally. Because its only a reflection of their limitation and current state of mind. I am the only one who is aware of my past, present and knows what I want to achieve in the future. What others think of me is none of my business.
Q14: Louis, did your life change since you made the decision to join this company?
L: Yes. I am a different man walking on planet earth now. I used to be financially and time broke. People used to laugh at me or or didn’t take me seriously. But ever since I joined WorldVentures, everything just clicked. I joined on Feb 2014, within 2 months, I resigned from my full-time job. I am full-time living right now. I believe both my friends and ‘dream stealers’ are very happy for me now.
Q15: Where do you see yourselves in 5 years?
H: I think I will be ready for parenthood by then. Becoming an International Marketing Director (IMD) with our company and helping my team to generate more IMDs
L: Double International Marketing Director.
Q16: Is there any good cause you would like to support one day? What is it and why?
H: For me having my own first newborn is important but cannot see my family complete without adopting orphans, from Kenya and Thailand. Parts of me are left in these countries…I have seen the circumstances and how they live. I have so much love and care for those kids and I believe if within the family we can share the same love with one another, raise them up as a family, the world can be a better place!
I am a Global Citizen, that tells a lot. The movement is supporting to “end poverty by 2030”. Also with our WV Foundation I can’t wait going to Guatemala to build a plastic bottle school in S – America. Hopefully within the next 1 -2 years ☺
L: Fund a purpose driven movie. Movie sends out messages to the masses.
Q17: Helga, your birthday is coming up, do you guys have big plans ahead?
H: We had an incredible celebration. Louis surprised me staying at Marina Bay Sands, continued with photo shooting and ended up taking me to Ocean Restaurant; which was something outstanding. If you haven’t heard of it, I do recommend you to Google it and put it to your bucket list. At the end he showed me a video from international friends all around the world sending me their special wishes. It was very special and made me smile, cry and laugh in the same time.
