LENE & IB NIELSEN

It started with a goal. A slight edge success story!

In 1998 I started in my dream job - a job I really loved - as an alarm technician. But when we got our third child in 2004 my wife Lene and I started to talk about how we really wanted our life to be. As most parents we really wanted more time with our kids. Lene also had a desire to continue to stay home when our kids were small. Because my salary was too low at the time I started to look for something that could generate extra income for our family.

In 2005 the opportunity with Zinzino came and I decided to give myself a year to reach enough extra income so we could afford for Lene could continue to stay home with the kids.

In January 2007 – the same time we got our fourth child, I had reached a level of commission from Zinzino that enabled us to reach our first goal. That changed everything. Our fear had been that every morning would be a rush to reach all deadlines. Now, we were in a position to enjoy being a family where the mornings were some of our favorite part of the day - they were peaceful moments we could enjoy together with our four precious children.

ANITA & MIKKO JARRAH

A real dream-struggle-victory story!
Told from my heart...

When I got started with Zinzino in 2012, my story was that I had been a serial entrepreneur for 13 years. During 2011, I was going through two bankruptcies. I had hundreds of thousands of euros in debt on my name and my monthly expenses were way over what I could finance. On top of that my relationship with my fiancé Anita was on the verge of ending. We were separated at the time and were living in different addresses.

Beginning of June 2011, I went to my first Zinzino presentation. My good friend, Manu Rekola, had decided that this would be the opportunity that would change his family's finances around and he was confident and determined to build a big business both in Finland and globally. With his contagious energy, my answer became simple.

I borrowed money from my aunt to get started and when I joined my only focus was to pay her off within my first 30 days. After reaching that, my next focus was to help my friends do the same. I remember being awake at night dreaming: If I only could reach the Zinzino rank Crown - that would give me enough income to be able to break even. At the same time I understood that a 1000 km run starts with the first step. READ MORE »

KINE & ØYVIND LIEN

Love and care. Step by step.

After being an entrepreneur for over a decade and going through a an amazing growth season in my construction company I suddenly found myself struck with a huge decrease when the finance crises hit Norway in 2008. To survive a tough time financially I took a job as a sales manager. At the same time Kine struggled a lot with health problems since she's had arthritis since adolescence. Her health was now getting so bad that she did not have the capacity to work full-time.

After working long days in Oslo spending lots of hours commuting to and from work, I was exhausted and realized I needed a change. I felt my life was empty and only consisted about work and being in a traffic line. My frustration was high and I was not my usual self.

I remember late one evening Kine and I had a talk. We desperately needed a change. We wanted our life back. My "Aha" moment came when my wife suddenly said, “Øyvind,I want my husband back.” The truth was that she was spot on. I wanted myself back. I wanted my life to give more meaning and do something that inspired me beyond just running from A-Z in time squeeze to meet financial deadlines. READ MORE »

KERSTIN & THIM ÖHMAN

The journey has just started.
We have lots more to do!

KERSTIN:
After 20 years working as an Orthoptist at a hospital in Sweden I suddenly realized I wasn’t living my dream. My first 10 years I absolutely loved what I was doing, but for every year that passed the stress increased. Every day my lists of patients increased and every day I felt I had less time per patient. On top of that I felt I wasn’t paid what I knew I was worth. My spare time was limited and my energy levels low. I desperately wanted to get more and give more. In 2005 I found the solution. I got presented to Zinzino, an opportunity to do something new for myself - in a team – where I both could develop myself as I increased my paycheck.

THIM:
After 17 years as an accountant I sold my firm in 2006. The first 10 years was inspiring but then I became sick-and-tired of working 60-100 hours a week during spring - the best time of year. My plan out was to create a passive income through developing my real estate business and learn more about investments. After a few years my education within investments became quite an expensive learning experience. It was extremely tough to go through, but still a time I wouldn't be without because it gave me an extraordinary opportunity to practice my financial survival skills. READ MORE »
