This month’s Consultant Spotlight is Janine AshingtonI have personally had the pleasure of working alongside Janine. Anyone that knows her can see her passion and conviction for anything she truly loves. Business is one of them. We chose Janine to be the spotlight of our very first corporate magazine, Elamant Connect, because of her dedication, loyalty, and perseverance. She truly knows what it takes to be successful in this industry. I sat down with her over the weekend and was able to gain some insight into the life and process that makes Janine already the most successful consultant in the company.

Q: So, tell us a little bit about yourself. What are some of your likes, interests, and hobbies?
A: I am a 37-year-old single mom living in South Africa with three beautiful children. I am known to be the typical ‘farm girl’ as my friends and colleagues call me, however, I do step up my game when it comes to business. I love succeeding and seeing people succeed in the journey with me! My main hobbies are spending time with my children as well as meeting people around the world. I love to travel and meet all walks of life! I decided to become an entrepreneur and work for myself because I wasn’t making the money I wanted working for others. Entrepreneurship is my full-time job and gives me access to stay at home with my children. I don’t come from a rich background, I left school at the age of 16 and wouldn’t say I am rich now, but I get a chance to work and make money on my terms. I get to travel and enjoy life! Being an entrepreneur gives me the full ability to take control of my life and financial freedom that nobody can dictate how much money I can make.
Q: If you had all the money and all the time in the world, what would you do more of?
A: I would certainly put my time and money back into the communities around the world. I am currently supporting small families and small orphanages in Africa with clothes and food supplies where I can. Personally, I would like to help young teenagers and adults to step into the Entrepreneur World
“I will always thank the person that took that hour to explain exactly what Network Marketing is and what it can do for a person.” – Janine Ashington
Q: How did you get started in the Network Marketing industry?
A: This is actually a funny story but an honest story. Network marketing was something that I always used the typical reply that we as Networkers often get told “Scam.” To me, it was something to stay away from at the time. However, I would see all these posts on Social media stating you could earn money doing this and doing that. I was tired of working for someone else, I was tired of paying daycare centers to look after my children. I was tired of not having my own financial freedom. One day I took the time out and spoke to someone about the Industry to which it opened my world to a whole different experience. For me personally, I will always thank the person that took that hour to explain exactly what Network Marketing is and what it can do for a person. Today, I would never be in the position I am in now. My family would not have the financial freedom that they have!
Q: Any advice for your teams or for those reading?
A: Focus on the aim which you set for yourself. Prepare your own dream board.
Never try the shortcut. There is no “get-rich-quick scheme” to success. Hard work and perseverance pay off. Keep going and never compromise with your dreams and ambition. This is your story. Be a good listener, a better reader, and a great leader
and always follow your “why.”
