Meet new One-Star Director Denesha Bailey! Denesha shares, “I am a 28-year-old young professional from Clarendon, Jamaica. I currently reside in the capital, Kingston. My interests include traveling, cooking and doing volunteer work geared towards youth development. Regarding my travel experiences, after completing my undergraduate studies, I moved to Medellin, Colombia for a year to volunteer as an English language Instructor. I have visited the countries of Peru, Argentina, Panama, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, United States, United Kingdom, Barbados, and Trinidad and Tobago for both business and pleasure. I love Latin America because of the people and their rich and vibrant culture.
“My success so far at PlanNet Marketing can be credited firstly to God, and secondly to what I call my 3Cs: Commitment, Consistency and Coachability.
“Commitment: If you really desire success, you have to be completely dedicated to the process, no matter the challenges that arise. You have to give yourself, your time, your energy; you have to be all in.
“Consistency: Not to sound cliché, but consistency is key. People are constantly watching and looking out for opportunities to improve their lives and financial circumstances. If you are inconsistent, then you could miss a lot of those opportunities.
“Coachability: A lot of people tend to rely on their own knowledge and experiences to maneuverer whichever environment they are in, which is quite natural. However, being coachable is about being open to guidance from those around you, especially those who have already attained a level of success in the business. A lot of us are too caught up in ourselves that we find it difficult to take action when we are guided to do so. This will hinder your success drastically, because not everything will make sense to you, but when the evidence is there, then there is no need to question the ‘play.’
“My success was not a matter of chance – it came from hard work and consistency. My encouragement to others is that if you want to get to the top, you have to be the hardest worker in the room. I’m up late at nights and early mornings working my business.
“Additionally, I try to capitalize on every seemingly ‘free’ minute I get in order to do something that will contribute in some way to the growth of my organization. For example – during my lunch breaks at work, when I am stuck in traffic, if I’m in a queue at the bank – it doesn’t matter where. I no longer complain about the traffic jams in the mornings or evenings to get to work or to get home. I simply use that time to listen to an audiobook that we are reading, follow up with my BPs or prospects, or even do a quote for a client. I basically live and breathe my business!
“Fun fact: I'm fluent in Spanish and I'm an excellent Salsa dancer!”
