September, being our birthday month, always reminds us how far QNET has come in two decades.
As we celebrate our QNET Anniversary, with all the years of excellence and the numerous defining moments, we acknowledge that it’s the many, many superstars around the globe who’ve contributed to our astounding triumphs and helped us become the leading direct selling company.
So in honour of their contributions, here are 24 inspiring quotes from several QNET megastars — and a few other beloved personalities you’ll surely recognise! — to commemorate the 24th QNET anniversary and inspire you on your entrepreneurship journey.
On the motivation to succeed
Whether direct selling is your primary source of income or a side hustle, it’s always important to remember your reasons for becoming an entrepreneur and to ensure that they motivate and spur you on to success, like these QNET superstars.
“One day, someone called me an irresponsible mum… simply because I made a ‘crazy’ decision to not go for employment, but instead to look for a way to provide for my children while at the same time doing that from home so that I could have the flexibility of time … I proved her wrong, and I proved myself right.” — V Partner Donna Imson Lecaroz
“I was in a situation where it didn’t seem like I had any other options or avenues to earn more money. The salary that I was receiving wasn’t enough to cover some of my most important expenses, such as my loans and credit cards. When I got to know about QNET, I just had to try whatever came my way to survive. Looking back, that moment was the best thing that has happened in my life.” — Sapphire Star Gireesh Pushparajan

“I wanted to become financially independent. I wanted something of my own… I wanted to help my family as much as possible, and I wanted to make sure that my loved ones did not need anything that I couldn’t give them.” — Sapphire Star Alishpayeva Armanovna

“I was a student and lived in a small rented room and couldn’t afford to go shopping or even dream of owning a car or going on a vacation. I was merely existing… All I wanted was to earn enough money for a living. With QNET, I started to hope for a better life; I believed in myself and worked towards a better life for my family and myself.” — Platinum Star and V Council Member Baurzhan Uali
On overcoming disappointment and setbacks
The road to entrepreneurship success isn’t easy. Yet challenges, when viewed positively and with the right attitude, can make us better. More importantly, there are very few hurdles in business that can’t be overcome.

“It’s not important what I’ve got from this business. What I have become in this journey as a person is more valuable than what I got. This business has changed me as a person … the situations, the challenges, the issues, all these made me learn how to be detached, how to not give up on people, how not to become complacent, how to start the journey again and again in new markets …” — V Partner Sachin Gupta
“Since I started my journey with QNET, the way I think, the way I dream, my confidence, my love for my family and loved ones have changed.

On success extending beyond monetary rewards
