1. TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, AND HOW YOU JOINED ORIFLAME?
My name is Bar Abiola Akande, I am a lawyer by profession, and an entrepreneur and a lifestyle coach by choice.
I joined Oriflame in 2014. A friend of mine came to my house with the catalogue and introduced it to me. At first, I wasn't interested in doing business with the company, as in the past I had joined several MLM companies and unfortunately lost my money.
So, I only signed up with Oriflame to buy the products for personal use. Because I love to look great and the high quality of the products caught my attention.
But then I went to Oriflame's office for the first time. Nobody advised me to start a business, it was the success plan hanging in the office, that caught my eye. The fact that Oriflame is here in Nigeria, to help me fulfill my dreams of looking great, making money and having fun by traveling the world, made me say Yes immediately.
