many things; leader, guru, high-achiever. But there’s one title that I hold
closest to my heart, and that’s "hard worker". I ventured into the world of MLM
when I was 18 years old, and started from the very bottom of the ladder. With
perseverance, determination and the support of the people around me, I made my
first million in my early 20s, after which I moved up to become the company’s
No. 1 leader. Then, working harder than I’ve ever worked before, I developed a
company from its inception into a nationwide network of over 50 thousand
distributors, an achievement that I am still proud of till this day.
the harder you work for something, the bigger your rewards will be. Therefore,
there is a need to nurture one’s industrious nature and arm oneself with the
right skills, attitudes and expertise in order to achieve the loftiest of goals.
That’s why apart from taking care of Uptrend2u’s international business
activities, I’m also involved in personal development training, especially Brain
Development programmes, in order to enable Uptrend2u members to unlock their
My hope is that, through consistent hard work and focussed leadership, I, as
part of the Management of Uptrend Network, will be able to inspire the Company
and its members to achieve results far beyond our expectations.

achieving results you never thought possible and, at the same time, create a
mutually beneficial environment in which everyone can enjoy a sustainable level
than teamwork. As Senior Vice-President of Operations and Administration, my
responsibility is to motivate my team towards achieving, and exceeding, their
personal and group targets. But performance is not the only thing I want my
people to achieve. Through the Company’s philosophy of "Share and
Share Alike", I take the role of mentor and teacher, imparting my
personal experiences and knowledge to my team in order to encourage
self-transformation and the development of personal values. Because I believe
there is something new to learn every day, and that true success is knowing you
have contributed to a cause that is bigger than yourself.
Ahmad Daud M.D. (A.M) - Vice-President [Sales & Marketing]
that you can only fulfil your dreams if you have the courage to pursue it. Being
courageous means always doing your best, even if you think failure is
inevitable. It was this belief that made my time in the MLM business so
meaningful, inspiring me to look beyond my fears and see the opportunities
but I tried, and succeeded. I never thought that I would ever be able to manage
one of Malaysia’s 10 biggest Network Marketing companies, and yet, I did. It was
not that I was smarter, brighter or more talented than everyone else, but

members who strive, day in, day out, for the betterment of our quality of life
and from knowing the fact that with courage, there is nothing that can’t be

Penang who applied to study in, of all things, Agriculture, at Universiti
Pertanian, shocking my parents into thinking I wanted to become a farmer. Which
I didn’t, because I moved into an agricultural-based financial institution
instead after graduation, then on to 21 years in Malaysia’s best bank, learning
some integral lessons along the way; the importance of loyalty, efficiency and
doing things right, the power of procedures and systems, the ability to identify
and understand core issues.

come full circle; I’m back at a 9-to-5 job, but one that’s filled with
excitement and energy. I work with people who don’t just know what they’re
doing, but love what they do, and with a management team that inspires me to do
better every day, in an environment that allows me to use my vast experience and
expertise to the fullest for the benefit of all. And in the end, that’s what you

in Bangsar, and I would like to think that I have never wavered in my commitment
to the Management, to my colleagues, and to the Company’s noble objectives in my
role as Administrative Manager.
"Give the Best, to Get the Best." I see myself as a
mentor to my subordinates; I encourage them to constantly pursue knowledge and
to never give up, even in the most difficult of circumstances. I believe in
leading by example, and therefore make it a point to both attend and assist in
all Uptrend2u™ functions. By doing so, I am able to enhance my administrative
skills and inspire those around me to renew their commitment to the Company.

that when we are there for each other, there’s nothing we can’t achieve.
