Takako Kitaoka was a civil servant, just like many ordinary families today, but she used to dream of a good life, and had a great determination in life and an entrepreneurial spirit that was not yet tapped.
Takako Kitaoka initially lived a very simple life and led a civic job type of lifestyle that relied on monthly checks for survival.
Takako, however, unlike many other MLM entrepreneurs, had some little knowledge on the multilevel marketing businesses. This is because she had involved herself early in tone of these direct sales companies, but she unfortunately never made a dime.
Kitaoka however became one of the first people to join the Nu Skin business when it first opened its offices in Japan.
Takako Kitaoka had been looking for a viable business opportunity to will enable her fully put to use her entrepreneurial talent but without any success.
The biggest challenge to Kitaoka to starting her Nu Skin business is a fact that she had no mentor to guide her through the business nor were there any NuSkin trainings for her to guide her through; other than the few from her former mlm business that seemed irrelevant. I guess you understand how lost you can be if you invest in a multi level marketing business without a mentor or worse still try to use training materials from a different mlm company altogether, but it luckily worked for Takako Kitaoka of Nu Skin enterprises.
Takako however fell in love with the Nu skin Compensation plan, and saw Nuskin as a viable business opportunity that she badly needed in her life.

I bet her critics were either ashamed or inspired depending on their attitude.

Takako is however currently surprised how the network marketing business has changed today. She says that the road to becoming a multi-millionaire looks easier today, with the availability of millions of video trainings and podcasts online. She does not however regret making her millions during those days because it also made her learn a lot in life and business, other than meeting thousands of people.
Takako is still semi-active in Nu Skin business and she is always leading by example, as she thinks of a way to help as many people as possible build downline that are larger and dynamic than hers.
