Tamilla Polezhaeva: "We just need to start acting!"
A millionaire woman who managed to build her own business from scratch without having an economic education.
Tamilla Polezhaeva is one of the few women millionaires in Russia who managed to build her own business from scratch without having an economic education.
Tamilla grew up in Riga, graduated from the Conservatory and the University of Arts, worked in the theater. In 1996, she came to work as a consultant to the Swedish cosmetics company Oriflame. Before that, Tamilla was not engaged in business and was generally far from market relations.
Together with her husband Vladimir, they became one of the first consultants of Oriflame. Creating their team, training and developing them, they built a business and training system. “In 1996, there was a negative attitude to network marketing,” she recalls, “MMM, Herbalife, financial pyramids. It was an incomprehensible business, people did not believe. There was no training system. I had to create a lot from scratch. ”
Tamilla’s business was developing so successfully that the Oriflame company specially for it four times “built up” the Success Staircase (career growth plan in the company) with new steps.
Tamilla Polezhaeva is convinced that if you really want something and believe in yourself, you need to start acting: “I know that there are people who just live. There are people who live, but also watch the events taking place. And there are people who make these events happen. When someone says that something is impossible to do, let him not interfere with those who do this impossible. ”
“Every person is a leader,” says Tamilla. - In business, in the family, in relations with his dog. It’s just easier to do nothing, not to take responsibility for anything. You just need to think that without your intervention in your life, nothing will change. You cannot change your life in one night, but in one night you can change your thoughts, which then will change your whole life.
