What's in a Name?
Welcome, Warrior! I am Japanese and Filipina. I'm also known as Shizuka Samurai & Samurai Girl as my family line on the Japanese side is of Samurai lineage that traces back to the Fujiwara clan in the 9th Century. The symbol you see in my logo is my family crest. Fun fact: Only ten percent of the Japanese population is of Samurai ancestry.
I'm a wife, a mom of girls, president of an all female motorcycle club, and I love anything that allows me to express my creativity. My parents are my role models. My friends will tell you that I'm always helping others. It’s what my motorcycle club is built on as well - respect, honor, integrity, community outreach, empowerment.
I'm blessed to learn network marketing in my teens. In this space, I gained skills in managing effectively, the psychology of sales and people, helping to serve others, building teams, and more. In this space I fulfilled my desire to help more people, serve the community, and build an income doing what I love. I learned valuable lessons and gained so much knowledge! I implemented my learning with my jobs and built a fruitful corporate career while keeping my side business as a hobby. I promoted quickly at every job, notably being the youngest or one of the youngest managers in every organization. I managed teams remotely, in large departments, and large centers of 200 plus employees.
Back to My Roots
Since I was little, you would always catch me drawing, sketching, painting. Art was my passion. I majored in Art in college, but being forced to create things killed my vibe for it. Years later I am thankful that I found a way to get back in touch with my creative side. It's with my children and through permanent makeup artistry.
In 2020 I gained a new skill as a permanent makeup brow artist and I offer product solutions in cosmetics, skincare, and wellness. I get a sense of fulfillment as I get to help others succeed and solve their pains.
As of July 17, 2021 I am self employed and I provide my cosmetic and product solution services full time!
This year, I received my certification as a makeup artist as well!
A Greater Appreciation for Forever and the Industry
After starting my own business from scratch (https://slaybbllc.com), I realized just how special Forever really is. The cost of starting a business is a lot, especially for a solo practitioner like myself. The costs for filing as a LLC, my trademark, the many different types of business insurance, rent, my supplies, marketing, promotional materials, the list goes on! And here with Forever, all I do is share how much I love our products, help my customers solve their needs through either the products or opportunity, and get paid for it! The company does the rest! They handle the R&R, production, shipping and handling, insurance, legal fees and matters, insurance, and so on! And given our generous marketing plan, your income potential is limitless!
Here's a true story I would like to share. I knew in 2019 I wanted to get into permanent makeup artistry. At that same time, one friend decided to go all in and make Forever her main focus while I went on to become a PMUA. In the same amount of time she ranked up to a high leader position, qualified for multiple trips and for the new car incentive. She quit her full time job and is now doing Forever full time. Her name is Martina. There really is plenty of room for growth plus very little risk and monetary investment involved, especially compared to a brick and mortar.
Another living example is our leader, mentor, and friend, Oliver Lepki. He has been with Forever for over a decade and has created a successful and amazing legacy with the company for himself and his family. He's quite the celebrity in our organization. If you join with me today, I will support you. And what's extraordinary is that you'll be able to learn and grow from my friends, Oliver and Martina. We're just one big happy Forever fam.
It's never too late to change careers and pursue something that you're passionate about. Thank you for being here and sharing in my passions.
Much Love & Respect,
Unleash your inner warrior and slay your goals!
