Which company is QNET? It’s an international e-commerce-powered direct sales company that has a presence in in more than 20 countries. Founded in 1998, the direct selling company offers a range of health, wellness, and lifestyle products. It provides its distributors with a comprehensive training program. Also, it encourages all of its distributors to research the truth about any scam allegations surrounding it before becoming a distributor or independent representative.
It’s not a get rich quick scheme. “We’ve always maintained that QNET is not for those looking for overnight success,” stated the company’s first female CEO, Malou Caluza. “All of the top leaders that our network looks up to started with nothing and built their business slowly but steadily. It took them years to get where they are today.”
According to the direct selling company, “A truly global business, QNET’s strength lies in our diversity. We may be Asian by heritage, but our distributors are spread across the Middle East, South East Asia, Africa, Central Asia, and Europe. The company’s global footprint has helped develop microentrepreneurs in many emerging economies. We bring people together from around the world. Our customers and distributors have become part of a global community, helping people take charge of their lives. Millions of satisfied customers and over a million active distributors have transformed their lives with us in the last 20-plus years.”
Which Company Is QNET? The One That Understands the Importance of Training and Transparency
“We are very transparent as a company. Everything you want to know about QNET is available on our website and our social media. You will also find this information on third-party websites,” explained Caluza. “While direct selling is more than a century old, in many emerging economies, it is still in very early stages and hence, not properly understood.” As a result, many assume it’s some type of financial or investment scheme and are wary of it.
The company applies a two-part approach to training and educating distributors, independent representatives, and the general public. First, it has established the QNET Pro initiative, which focuses on training and education for the network on the proper ways to build the business in a legal, professional, and ethical manner. The second aspect is its network compliance department. “This team is focused on investigating all complaints the company receives from the field about violations of policies and procedures,” explained Caluza.
The company strives to follow all compliance and industry standards. According to Zaheer Merchant, the director of legal affairs, “If you look at the direct selling associations, for instance, they have rules and regulations. They tell you about not disparaging other companies and other people’s products, not misrepresenting things and income opportunities — all these factors come into play. Abide by them [and distributors will have] no problems at all.”
Direct Selling Success Stories
Today, Sanu Nair is a top distributor of the direct selling company. However, before he started training in 2013, he had serious doubts about the legitimacy of the direct selling company. Alas, he’s not the only person who’s been misled about the legitimacy of the company because of negative media coverage and social media defamation. “I didn’t want to ruin my name and be a reason for people to be cheated,” Nair explained. “Yet my friends were proud to be a part of [it]. Their words didn’t sound like those of cheaters, cowards, or fools. On the contrary, I felt it was the choice of an open-minded, fearless, ambitious person who wants to make money by helping others, not by cheating.”
The company’s comprehensive training programs made all the difference for Nair and many other distributors. “They trained me to understand the business. That included: how to do this business; what attitude an entrepreneur should cultivate; how we should love human beings beyond all the barriers of language, location, and religion; how to be open-minded enough to listen and learn from others; how not to ridicule; and how not to make people feel less [than] by sharing things that we don’t know are true or not. I was trained spiritually and taught how to be a good networker, a good son, a good husband, and a good person for society,” he stated. “Once I learned the subject matter and became confident to the point where I was 100% assured, I could embrace QNET’s direct sales.”
According to Nair, the direct selling company “gives people a great life if they’re ready to work, day in and day out, for five to six years to build up their sales organization, just like the CEO of a startup would do. You don’t need to do this alone. There are many people along the way to support you, unlike any other business platform.”
Some might think that sounds too good to be true, but it’s accurate. Ouattara Lassina has succeeded with the company in the West African country of Burkina Faso. He found financial success with the direct selling company following the tragic death of his father, which forced Lassina to drop out of university to support his entire family. “The idea of financial freedom really drew me to direct selling. With [the company], I could be an entrepreneur and support my family’s needs. I understood that if I worked hard, success would follow. Knowing that my family and community were counting on my success made me want to try. So, I gave myself a month to earn the first check. Once I did, I gave myself the deadline of three years to earn commissions regularly.”
He’s a true success story and can provide for his entire family. According to Lassina, “Your success depends on the success of others. When you enable someone else to earn a living like yourself, you have succeeded. If you are looking for a borderless business opportunity that will help you have a better life and also help humanity at the same time — QNET is it. All you need to do is work on the business with seriousness, honesty, and integrity. Understand the business plan completely and give it your best shot. Take your time to build a solid foundation. Do not look for shortcuts or violate [the company’s] policies. By following this advice, you are not only going to create a better life for yourself and your family, but you will also be creating something that many generations will benefit from.”
