Bernardo Chua is a Philippines businessman who now lives and works in British Columbia, Canada. He says up through when he was a teenager he wanted to eventually become a medical doctor. He wanted to help people live longer, healthier lives. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to attend medical school but he says he has still been able to help people throughout his career which gratifies him.
He started out his professional career as his family-run business. This was a garment manufacturing company and he became a purchasing manager. His whole family worked in this business, including all 14 of his older brothers and sisters. Since he was the youngest one he was lowest on the totem pole and thus had to please a lot of “bosses” as he puts it.
He was provided with the opportunity to operate a travel agency. He put initiatives in place that led to it expanding across Southeast Asia. A direct selling company took notice of his success and approached him about opening a Philippines regional office since they wanted to expand into that nation. Bernardo Chua took them up on this opportunity and this was how he ended up in the direct selling industry, something he has continued to operate in ever since. Follow Bernardo Chua on Twitter.
Along with his team he was able to expand this company’s operations into the Philippines and then elsewhere in Southeast Asia. After a period of time this company wanted to expand into North America and they asked him to manage their new offices there. He moved his family to Canada. Six years later he made the decision to open his own company and so Organo Gold was born.
Organo Gold sells coffees and teas that include Ganoderma. This substance is thought to be helpful with a number of conditions and so is considered quite healthy. Bernardo Chua has built this company up into a multinational firm with independent contractors in many different countries. His products are sold to these independent contractors and then they sell them directly to consumers, earning a commission for doing so from Organo Gold.
