Well, there are many “Nancy Longs” on the Internet. So to avoid confusion with my namesakes, I have tagged “SG” to my name. “SG” stands for Singapore where I am based currently. As I am in a borderless business, I can work in any market I choose. If tomorrow Thailand, for example, becomes my biggest market, I could operate from that country or I could stay in Singapore and still effectively grow the Thai market. That is the beauty of borderless marketing, you can work anywhere and still build a huge market.
To all the Nancy Longs out there, I say “Keep the Nancy Long flag flying high. Long may you prosper“.
It’s interesting, the surname”Long” is prevalent both Europe and Asia. In the long distant past, either one of our ancestors may have crossed continents and we “Long” may be related if we trace our ancestry far enough. I know that a “Long” comes in different colors and shades, but what the heck, why can’t believe in a universal dream of brotherhood or sisterhood? Underneath it all,we have more in common than we care to admit. In a world of increasing interconnectivity, we should not be clinging onto old baggage that have been inbred into our Cultural, Religious and Social Consciousness and see the bigger picture.
Let’s work together and make this a better World to live in.
The world is going through a major crisis currently. If everyone of us do our part, we can, together, change the world for the benefit of our children and for the future generations that come after us.
I’ve been a full time Direct Sales Professional for the past 11 years (as of 2013). I love this career because it has given me true freedom – to do and think whatever I want. Nobody is my boss. I work when I want to and go into biz partnership with whomever I like. My new company Isagenix is truly a borderless company. I can sign up anyone around the world where the company has an office. I can conduct my business with my computer or smart phone without ever stepping on a plane or car. If you’d like to be like me, contact me and we can explore opportunities together, have lots of fun doing it, and getting well paid for it as a result of what we love to do…

Nancy, first of all, can you please do an introduction of yourself?
Q1. What were you doing before you joined this company?
I led one of the top insurance agencies in Singapore with sales turnover in excess of $2 million a year and as a result won many prestigious awards as top regional performer and earned a 7-figure income a year.
Q2. So Nancy, why did you leave a highly profitable business to join this company?
When the Singapore Government amended the Multi-level Marketing Act, I knew that I should explore this new opportunity as I foresaw that the coming tide of economic change. When I read books about network marketing and the “Next Trillion“, it confirmed even more my decision to make the momentous switch – even if it meant a big loss of income at the initial stage.
Q3. Nancy, you climbed the ranks of Unicity very fast, from new recruit to Presidential Sapphire within 13 months. How did you do that? What did you do that others can also do?
Lots of things in life do not happen by chance. For me, all the successes I have had were planned for, and they always follow these steps:
1. Know exactly the amount or target I want to reach and find out how to get it;
2. Massive action, which for me meant sharing the opportunity with 3 or 4 people a day, everyday;
3. Follow up and follow through, with persistence and unshakeable faith that what I want, I will get.
As soon I bought into the business, I set a target to reach 45,000 OV (about S$90,000) in 3 months. Working backwards, on the basis that each person will buy 100PV or roughly S$200 of products,
I quickly figured out that I would need to have an organization with 450 people using our products. Thinking of the figures alone inspired me, and got me excited. So, I proceeded to share with 3 or 4 people a day so that I could reach about 100 people in the first month. Everyday, I was calling people, meeting up with them and drawing circles. Within the first month, I personally sponsored 40 people. Then, I proceeded to help the 40 people to get 10 people each.
I organized sessions in the first month at my condo apartment until the crowds started to spill over into my bedrooms. Thereafter I shared the concept of the business and the benefits of the products at my condominium Clubhouse function room every weekend.
At the beginning, we had 8 to 10 people. Week after week, the number multiplied. By the 4th month, our group did S$160,000 instead of the S$90,000 I targeted. Within 10 months, our group volume grew to nearly S$500,000.
Q4. Can others do what you did?
Sure. If you want it badly enough, you can do the same, even better. – everything is Possible!
“Someone once said that great gifts come in small package but is is one of Unicity’s greatest business builders in Singapore. Nancy Long has PERSONALLY RECRUITED OVER 100 BUSINESS ASSOCIATES and helped her organisation duplicate her success. She rose from a new Business Associate to PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTOR IN 4 MONTHS. Six months after that she achieved the rank of Presidential Sapphire, the 3rd highest rank in Unicity.
Nancy Long knows the meaning of commitment and not looking back. When Singapore amended the Multi-Level Marketing Act in 2000, Nancy saw the opportunity. She walked away from a seven figure income as an insurance executive to start a new career with a MLM company. She totally believes that she is in the right company at the right time to be part of the network marketing explosion of the new millennium.
The stresses of Nancy Long’s insurance job had taken its toll on her body. Suffering from chronic fatigue, joint and body pains and unable to sleep more than 2 hours a day, Nancy began taking nutritional products to improve her health.
“I must continue to recruit each month and do the basics or I can’t tell my people to follow me. Our job is to recruit and help others to do the same, not to manage and depend on others to do your work for you. People don’t want to be managed, they want to follow a true leader”
“The first 90 days for a new Business Associate are critical for business builders. I help my people intensely for 90 days so they can have early success and keep growing and stay with the business”
A FEW KEY PEOPLE:
“All it takes is a few key people who want to be successful as much as you do and you will grow a large organisation. The key is to find those people”
“If a person will stay on Autoship and use the products for at least 3 months, they will be a customer for life. We have great products. When people use the products for several months, they don’t want to be without them. Get your people on Autoship from the beginning” More ————————————————————————————–
Nancy Long is no longer with Unicity since early 2013 as she has found a company that has a better management and field leaders, superior products, more lucrative compensation plan and generally a more professional marketing plan. She is now a high ranking business builder in Isagenix where she continues her trail blazing work of opening new markets for Isagenix in Asia.
