With an illustrious background as the former Youth Shadow Minister for Education in the Youth Parliament of Pakistan, a National Youth Award holder from the Government of Pakistan, and a South Asia Gold Medalist for Best Social Worker of Pakistan, Engineer Muhammad Saleem is no stranger to success. Based in Bahawalpur, Pakistan, Engineer Muhammad Saleem originally joined LEO in 2012, the year the organisation was launched, and quickly achieved Executive rank. However, in 2014, he decided to leave and joined a US-based direct selling company, but rapidly regretted his decision. Rejoining LEO in March 2015, he started again from the bottom and has now worked his way up to Marketing Director rank. So, to find out what makes this highly successful LEO leader tick, we asked him some questions:
- What is the secret to your success with LEO and how has this changed your life?
One of the benefits that LEO’s training has personally provided me with is how to stay positive and that is the biggest secret to my success. The second secret is consistency – I stick with my goals no matter what the circumstances are. Third, and last, is my desire to learn more every day.
- What inspired you to join LEO and what do you like most about the company?
Back in 2010, before the launch of LEO, I attended some entrepreneurship training given by Dan Andersson, LEO CEO, in Pakistan. Based on his motivating words, it was easy to take the decision to join LEO.
- What motivates you to succeed in your LEO business?
LEO’s learning model has helped me to learn lots of new things about life, as well as earn and stay motivated.
- What would be your advice to anyone who wants to succeed in the industry, and what do you think makes a good leader?
It is important that you select a mentor from your upline. In my experience, the majority of people who become successful in this industry do so because they have a mentor. Direct selling is not an overnight get-rich scheme, but requires you to work consistently in the right direction, with positivity, and attend training.
- Finally, what are your plans for the future?
I am planning to conduct an Advanced Leadership Training event for the top 300 leaders in my team, so that I can teach them what I have learned in my past eight years in the industry.
