An emerging feature of the post-pandemic era is the increasing interest in human nutrition. People are looking out for means of increasing their knowledge on the values that several food items add to the quality of their health. That is in terms of boosting their immunity to different diseases; making them more energetic, enhancing the performance of their different organs, or to look younger and slow down the ageing process.
It is not surprising therefore, to come in contact with marketers of sundry food supplements who are ever ready to enlighten you on the nutritional benefits of what they sell. Furthermore, they would go to great lengths to convince on how to gain more money from them when one joins their crowd-funding techniques or network marketing gimmicks. That brings into focus my recent encounter with one of such marketers in the person of Mister Ossai Napoleon. He sells TIENS Supplements. We got talking and he provided some answers to my questions:

What piece of advice do you have for those who want to join in the marketing of TIENS products?
My advice is that they should believe in themselves first, then in the efficacy of TIENS products and to believe in TIENS Compensation Plan. The plan is such that it pays 55.5% to Distributors and Partners at different levels. This is indeed a highly profitable business by working closely with the team of partners and Line of Sponsorship (LOS).
With a team following a system as instituted by TIENS and benefiting from the compensation plan one will achieve his dream of excellent health and financial freedom.
What do you have to say about the nutritional supplements?
The nutritional supplements are our health insurance.They are made to use the best approach which is to attack the root causes of oxidative stress and all degenerative diseases. They provide adequate nutrition to the cells at optimal level. It is about health, not diseases. This preventive approach is certainly the best way to care for, and protect our health.
