We will start after am graduate from High School . ‘Came on the family that really tough to find a money . Am still remember that day , just right away after finish graduating high school am get news that i will not be able to go to University of College ‘ and that time am already take some exam for Public Account with passing grade a good one to accelerate into that College 🙂 .
Because my family no longer can support of that . So am thinking , even i not go to College of whatsoever . As long as am still have hope , am much believe the door will lead me to it.
Am started to read news pepper and seek the opportunity . And that time i saw one vacant for a Sales Marketing from one of company that make me interested to try . Am prepared all the require document and the next day i came to that place.
Seem weird the place is like not an office but my curiosity lend me to try over it . Basically we sale it any kind of house hold product and they have an opportunity to grow within that program . Frankly i can say this is an MLM . Again am just want to try it .

So the second day , i came . There is a leader are accompany me . And this time we go by train to other city , and sale it that product.
Can you imagine , am wearing a formal attire and go along to a village , pass it the rice field , In the sunny day . Knock door to door . Offer the product .
Then , one day while am offer door to door the product , i came across to this house . Which is the Madam is work for Insurance . As she is the one of the manager from that Insurance Company . She is very interesting with my approaching and giving me her business card . If i want to try to became her team on that company. I was really surprise for this moment , really that there is a thing can work on .

Time flies …………..many experience i got that time . But only for one week then am decide it to quit . It is no a bad at all , the thing is i know how hard it is . and of course i get an lesson from it . and am decide to go to her and let her know am interest and join with her.
Am forget the name of the Insurance company , but that time am feel it that am all of sudden up to the next level . In term of what am and where am eat .
Yes , is no joke that before am eat in the traditional public place . In indonesia we call it ‘Warteg ” to an air conditioner place and every time am attend that one week class . Am eating very very nice food . 🙂 hahahaha….
We are in the small group that time , doing the class for a week . From the introduce of the company , Product and opportunity to growth by within.
And an also feel it the excitement of when they do Team Building into DUFAN, and Indonesian wonderland free of charge . They provide everything , am just came and enjoy it.
Really am enjoy it that time and very keen with the manager and the branch manager . They are really good people . But unfortunate after one month am got into the situation which is i know , it is really hard to sale Insurance Product . I need to build trusted and determine on it . Then am frustrated because i need money as well just to go and find a client . Until i don’t have more money to go , then am quit the job. I might say is only 3 month am survive there.
One morning day , after that week of doing that MLM job . My grandmother tell me, that she have somebody that could help me . Mr. Sutisna is his name.
He is the first ever person that give me so many lesson about life and how we are need to facing it , be determine and actually we will get the benefit of it soon or later. So that they me and my grandmother went to his house, which is actually a best friend of my grandmother.
Am already prepared my CV along the way complete with every document might be needing during the meet up’. Yes he have an opportunity for me , that they seek a bus boy , hmmmm….. we can call it assistant waiter . in one restaurant in Cibubur TMII Jakarta.

From that opportunity , am learn what we call it ‘Hospitality Industries’. I can’t say the salary was good enough . Because it is really far from my house, and i need to go by bus . approximately it cover 1 and half hour to reach the location from bus station.
My first week Mr.Sutisna is always gone with me going to work place. Then am learn while we are heading the place work . Talk about anything am interested in a business industries.
