Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I was always fascinated by the beauty and wanted people to become more beautiful and more confident with themselves. Seeing and feeling the energy after making someone look better is magical.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
Most interesting about my journey is probably that I generated a huge reach in Indonesia through my social media profiles. Going from a few hundred to more than 524,000 followers on Instagram blew my mind. Thousands of people follow my everyday life through my Instastories. They have watched me go from being a doctor with a small clinic, to become one of the most successful doctors in all of Indonesia. We have recently opened the 5th clinic and our skincare brand is growing every day.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
You cant burns out if you do something that you are passionate about. If you’re not passionate about your job, find another job. I wake up excited every morning, ready to keep building my success.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
I’m very thankful for having my family and friends behind me. They helped me get through hard times. I’m also very thankful for having such a huge “fanbase” behind me. They trust the quality of my brand “benings clinics” and “benings skincare”
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I certainly do but I would like to keep this private. What open to the public is that my brand makes people more beautiful and happier with themselves. We also secure many people’s lives by giving them a safe and secure job in exchange for them doing great work for us. I’m seriously so thankful for all our patients, customers and employees.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
No quote, but I just wanna tell people to find something they are passionate about and just don’t give up. Only 3 years ago maybe people would have said I’m not successful with my work, but I never stopped believing, I would make it one day and being passionate about my work helped me to stay strong and keep working hard every day.
