Kon’nichiwa nihon – Hello Japan!
Did you know that 50,000 people in Japan are over 100 years old? About 21% of the country’s population is of old age. That’s one of the highest proportions in the world. As the aging of the population has progressed, people have become more conscious about health and nutrition in the long run. But just to clarify, this consciousness applies to all age groups. And it’s only logical. While young people want to nurture their body with prospects of living a long life, the elderly want to maintain their health, to continue living life to the fullest. The result: an incredibly high demand in good dietary supplements.
Better yet, direct sales business in Japan is on the rise. It has already been an extremely large market during the last years. From 2008 to 2015 the average annual sales profit of direct sales business was 990 billion yen (7 billion Euro). It is expected to grow even more in the future.
Perfect conditions for PM-International, right? That’s why it has started setting up its Japanese tents in 1997. After years of hard work, the official opening took place in 2015. During the last three years, it has improved the sales profit dramatically. 23 pairs of eager helping hands continue to expand PM-Japan. What they’re all looking forward to next: the world’s biggest sport competition, the Summer Games held in Tokyo in 2020.
FitLine in the Ring
Speaking of sports: Hidenori Ohtake, current Oriental Pacific Super Bantamweight Champion, is one of Japan’s FitLine athletes. During his career, he has fought many fights. He is an incredibly tough athlete. His most outstanding feature: seemingly indestructible. He doesn’t only dish out blows, but also doesn’t back down when he is pounded on. The longer the bout goes on, the stronger he grows. Persistence and resilience are the key to his success.
To stay on top of his game, FitLine products are indispensable. He incorporates them into his training and into his fights. Basics, Restorate, Activize, ProShape Amino, and Fitness-Drink help him maintain and manage his physical condition. Especially Activize has become a great source of power.
Success in High Heels
One dove straight into work-life after high school. The other went to university before taking a position at an IT company. Both were unhappy with their jobs and needed a change. What they did? Kyoko Akiyama and YingJin Yu joined the PM-business.
Because of her sensibility and perception as a woman, Kyoko empowers other PM-members in Japan to aim for success. She is the highest sales record holder during the first month of registration in the history of PM-International. In addition, she has achieved President, Silver President, Gold President in the quickest time ever! She is the first gold president in Japan as well as Asia’s No. 1 team partner.
Gold president, Ms. YingJin Yu, realized that working in an office wasn’t enough for her anymore, personally and financially. It takes a lot to raise a child and manage a household. Working with PM gives her greater independence. She can structure her work-life around her family and still be incredibly successful. She will continue to develop her PM-business by travelling through Japan, China, and South Korea.
At PM-International, anyone can be SIMPLE. SUCCESSFUL. All you need is commitment to and belief in what you do.
