Marta Gillette, Gold Distributor
Why did you join Nice & Bella?
I happened to come across the company in a very providential way. For several years I worked as a bilingual executive secretary but when my husband and I married I chose to stay home and dedicate myself to my family. When my youngest graduated, I was between chasing my lifelong dream of owning my own business or taking up my former career. One day, while taking an online class, I heard another student discussing his business with Nice. I went online and read more about the business. The jewelry was fantastic and I loved everything I read about the company. But the most touching part of all was the company’s philanthropy and their commitment to community service. I saw a company with heart and from there, I decided to follow my dream and launch my business with them.
How has being a Nice & Bella distributor impacted your life?
First, I’ve achieved my dream of owning my own business with the pleasure of wearing our beautiful jewelry in the process. I’ve grown both personally and professionally as a businesswoman. I believe in myself, I do what I am passionate about and I don’t take “no” for an answer. On a daily basis I give myself the opportunity to learn and grow and be humble enough to accept and correct my mistakes to continue growing my business.
What's your favorite Nice & Bella memory?
Definitely when I was nominated for the Mateo Litchi Award. Being recognized for the work my team and everyone else who supported me along the way helped me create was a great moment. Here at Nice & Bella, we’re all one team, one family, fighting together for the success of every single one of us.
What's your advice for someone considering becoming a Distributor?
There are several reasons why someone may be interested in joining Nice & Bella - whether it’s purchasing jewelry at a discount, reaching a particular goal, a special dream, to fulfill a need, etc. Whatever the motivation or dream may be, recognizing that need and taking action is vital.
Doubt is a product of fear. You have to ask yourself one question: are you committed to your dream, your goal or not? Because if your commitment to your dream is bigger than your fear, you can overcome doubt, fear and any other obstacle.
What inspires you?
For me, it’s the word of God. I know that with him, I can achieve anything. Any storm that comes my way, I can overcome it with Him by my side.
What are you known for?
As I mentioned before, my professional training is as an executive secretary. So I am very organized, and according to some, sometimes too organized! But I’m working on it!
What has been your most interesting sale?
I have a client who works at a restaurant. Every time I see her, even when I’m delivering a purchase, she buys even more jewelry! I had previously invited her to join Nice & Bella but she very clearly stated she was not interested. So I dropped the idea and didn’t ask again because I prefer not to be pushy. She recently told me that all the jewelry she purchased kept disappearing - her daughter kept borrowing it and wouldn’t return it! Laughing, I said, “Well when are you going to introduce me to your daughter, she’d make a great distributor!” She responded, “No no no! I want to do it!” She suddenly recognized the opportunity or simply needed to be asked one more time!
