My Career with Creata Direct Learning Qld Sales Leader 1 Carlien Smithuis I joined the Learning Ladder, now known as Creata Direct Learning, in 2008, “just because I loved the products”, and I wouldn’t mind being able to buy for my children at a discount. I was invited to come to the monthly company meetings. I loved these meetings because of their positive atmosphere and I enjoyed being part of this group of ladies. This feeling of “belonging to” motivated me to start building my own Creata Direct Learning business. I started booking my parties and looking for people who wanted to be part of my Team, “my Australian family”. So I sponsored a few people and continued to sell some product, and always made sure that I had bookings in my diary to keep selling and sponsoring. One of the things that I love most about my work is meeting the most amazing people every time you go out. I feel really privileged to make a difference to their

life, and in return I feel very grateful to be able to learn from them too. In my business, I really enjoy thinking about and finding innovative ways to meet new people. Because of this I am working with people in various walks of life. To give an example: I work with special need schools; with the Gifted and Talented association; home schooling groups; the Union for Childcare workers; sporting clubs; local markets; childcare centres; playgroups, and of course meeting various people at my Get Togethers. Building my Creata Direct Learning business has been a dream come true. I love working with other like minded people. I love the self development, where I continue to learn new business skills that make me grow as a person, and as a business leader. The satisfaction that I get from this makes me want to stay with the company, and gives me the desire to continue, and to keep growing and building a bigger and better business for the future. As my Team and business grows, I am looking forward to learning more about myself and others, as I would like to be thought of as an inspirational role model and mentor for the people in my business. I would like to find more women who are interested in personal and professional development and growth, and I hope that I can continue my contribution in helping them with their goals.
