Change is the only constant thing about our world, but how do we cope? With the recent challenges we’ve been facing, I decided to pull someone in to chat to us who has truly experienced this industry through highs, lows and everything in between.
In today’s episode, we’ve invited a very special guest, who can speak to us about embracing change. What with his experience of 30 years in the industry, I believe there’s no better person to talk to us about our topic for today than John Haines — director of Amway Australia and New Zealand.
John Haines is the Director of Amway Australia and New Zealand. With a background in marketing and sales, John has been with Amway for 30 years. He has truly experienced both highs and lows of the business that has stood the test of time. John believes that life is a journey and through difficult times you must demonstrate grit and resilience to power through, and that’s exactly what he has shown with Amway.
