Ex-beauty queen, Chinazom S.F Egbo also known as Samantha Ubani, is a successful forex trader and network marketer. Samantha’s success started with one life-changing conversation and now she dedicates herself to helping other people achieve financial freedom through trading and network marketing
We managed to get Samantha to sit down for a chat and we talked about her brand, aspirations, and how she deals with all the challenges and obstacles laid in her path.
What inspired you to create your brand?
To me, success is not just about being wealthy. I think you can not truly lay claim to being successful unless you are impacting other people’s lives. I created my business because I wanted to share my impact with my community and help other people achieve what I have.
Everything I have would not be possible without my friend who introduced me to this business. A little over a year ago, I had just moved to London and I was struggling with getting a job. The conversation we had about forex trading and network marketing completely changed the course of my story. I want to be able to do the same for other people.
My primary objective is to reduce poverty around the world in line with Goal 2 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, by teaching people how to build sustainable businesses from home- regardless of where they are in the world.
What obstacles have you faced so far and how did you overcome these obstacles?
The biggest issue is always getting people to trust you. There are all sorts of rumors and stereotypes surrounding forex trading and network marketing. One of the biggest questions I always get asked by students is how soon can they begin to make money.
Whenever I deal with prospects, I always try to be as honest and transparent as possible. By being upfront about what they can achieve, as well as what the restrictions and limitations are, I am able to earn their trust right from the start. The mistake a lot of mentors in this field make is encouraging newcomers to believe false information and raising their hopes too high. Succeeding in this field takes a lot of patience and consistency and I try to make sure my students and mentees know that.
What is your best advice for someone who wants to grow in any area of their life?
Think outside the box, there are opportunities around you. Many people tend to think they need to be in a specific place before they can become successful. This is not true at all. What I do, both in my business and personal life- is to educate people on how they can build sustainable online businesses from any part of the world.
You must also be aware that the majority of the people you meet won’t understand or relate to your dreams and that’s okay. If you come from a humble background, you will most likely be surrounded by people who will think your dreams and standards are too high. This is called a poverty mindset, and you must free yourself from it before you can grow.
Look for people that have the results you want and learn from them. Another common misconception is that these people most be older than you. In Nigeria where I come from, the culture is very centered on respect for older people, but that does not mean they always know better. There are so many young people who can offer a ton of value. Find them, and invest in mentorship and coaching.
