Interview: Julie, Mom of Two & Network Marketing Expert! @Syl_julekalungi
November 15, 2018
Thank you for taking the time to do this interview with me! Please tell us a bit about yourself and what you do currently…
Hey Ruth @TaxTwerk, I am blessed to do this interview with you and your audience thanks for having me.
I am Julie Syl, a Mom of Two, Wife to 1, live in England and I love my life. I love cooking, dancing and travel ending up on a beach with a Good book and a dirty banana!
I am a Business Success Transformation Coach and I help new marketers and entrepreneurs navigate the online space, brand themselves and attract the right audience for their offers. Thus, building a business that loves and serves their lifestyle, whatever that may be.
What inspired you to start doing your own business venture?
I can with clarity say Desperacy… I needed income. I needed for my children to stop looking at me with pity and Me saying “We can’t afford that” When we went shopping. I needed to be able to buy myself stuff and be an adult as opposed to a dependent child on my Husband.
You see… I had been at home searching for gainful employment for over 2 years, praying, fasting, seeking and I found. I realised that with my training, qualifications in Law, Business Admin, Housing Construction and Management, I could do so much more than sit around moping. So I did some research, and I was introduced to Network marketing…Lets backup a bit..
I am a firm believer in “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.”
Having been an NVQ Assessor before, I was ready to build on that as a home business with coaching as the focus. Much as I at first thought the NM was a detour to my coaching calling, It actually enhanced it and added the right flavour to it.
Today most of my clients are Network Marketers looking to build a team and business that pays on purpose.
What has been your biggest achievement so far?
My biggest achievement… Hmm I believe there is no ONE single achievement I call “the biggest.” Simply because every achievement I have made was from a Goal I had set out, that was just Right at the time I made it. So each of my achievements are the Biggest!
That said, I know that my biggest achievement is Being a MOTHER… Simply because outside of doing for My husband/best friend and I, Everything I do, I do with a view to inspire my Children. To bring out the best in them, be a role model for them, help them on their life journey and also to leave them a legacy.
That said, I am pretty chuffed about being recognised as one of the top Bloggers in Network marketing, At #23 Also I was recently recognised as a Pinterest Expert. And I cannot stop marvelling at having successfully published two books:
The Art of Pinterest Profits Afro-Brit Travelpreneur Confessions
As well and running a coaching brand!
What are you working on for this year?
Well, this year My husband/business partner and I Set out to build on our JetSet Academy Coaching part of the Kalungi Group Brand. Inside of that we soft-launched the “Winning Entrepreneurs Den” and the results have been so exciting. We cannot wait to build on these and Continue to create the legacy we started out in 2015.
What fuels you to keep you going each day?
My burning Desire to succeed not just for me, or my family, but also for my Deepest audacious dream to build a school for orphans. As I was an orphan myself! Every time I feel like I can’t be asked to wake up and get to work, I remember a child praying for someone like me to Help bring change to their lives… As I was! And I get up and get to work.
Who are the top 3 celebrities/experts you’d love to work with? And why?
I have a few, My top 3 this hot minute are:
Take a moment to close your eyes. Where do you see yourself in 5 year’s time?
Well, I see myself in the best shape of my life, I have a personal trainer who takes me thru my paces. I eat homegrown fresh organic foods, Living in my dream home. Spending more time with my family and loved ones.
I see myself working with my Soul high-end clients that I love who are also excited about their journey and getting results. I am so excited that this results in a domino effect of more referrals to me and thus I spend less time marketing and more time Serving my hand-picked clients.
It also brings me more Speaking Gigs in front of tens of thousands of excited people, who are literally buzzing to hear from me and are riveted by what I say and recommend!

If you could get the perfect help from an online tax return service, what would they do for you?
They would help me set up a system that allows me to enter every business transaction automatically in a spreadsheet app related or digital and of course help me make more savings. So I can do more of what I love.
Can you give our readers 2 key tips for staying focused on their success?
