The advent of technology has introduced several innovative business ventures for entrepreneurs to explore. However, some proven conventional business avenues are still disrupting the entrepreneurial world. The story of Tony De Gouveia, an accomplished entrepreneur and servant leader from Johannesburg, South Africa, is proof that network marketing can be a thriving channel for generating a steady passive income source. 

Starting his career in the retail sector, De Gouveia invested over two decades in the industry to gain invaluable experience. This eventually helped him achieve success in network marketing. Today, De Gouveia is an inspiration to many, steering them toward financial freedom through his brainchild, TUB (The Ultimate Business). 

In 2010, De Gouveia entered the realm of network marketing, which was a major transition from his established role in the retail industry. A sabbatical year became a transformative period, leading him to the endless possibilities of online business. The global reach of network marketing fascinated De Gouveia to embrace it as a full-time profession. 

His initial years in network marketing were quite challenging as De Gouveia struggled to shift from a traditional retail mindset into a dynamic leader guiding a volunteer army. His philosophy was clear that network marketing wasn't about dictating orders but about showcasing the path through actions. Drawing inspiration from the leadership styles of Gandhi and Jesus, De Gouveia evolved into a servant leader, influencing others to not just chase their financial goals but also turn them into reality. 

As a leader, De Gouveia mastered the art of influencing and creating harmony within his team. He learned to delegate and develop other leaders while suppressing his ego. These lessons helped him evolve into a seasoned network marketer who emphasizes creating a passionate team instead of mindlessly driving sales. De Gouveia believes that true success lies in fostering a community of leaders, not being the sole hero. Through trial and error, he realized the importance of empowering others to discover the true spirit of network marketing. 

In 2017, after seven years in the network marketing industry, De Gouveia achieved a breakthrough in his career. His team started growing exceptionally and reached a remarkable height in 2018. This marked a welcoming transition from Carrot Bars to GSP with a colossal team of 130,000 individuals. Since then, the servant leadership philosophy of collaboration over dictatorship became De Gouveia's guiding light. 

Beyond his accolades and soaring income, De Gouveia perceives network marketing as a platform for collective freedom. TUB, The Ultimate Business, unlocks the gateway to this freedom of choice, time, and income for individuals. His passion to help others find their path to financial liberation has been the driving force behind TUB. 

From running multiple retail franchises to setting a world record for the longest Boerewors in 1999, and now a servant leader and successful entrepreneur, De Gouveia is crafting a legacy for others to follow. He aspires to author a book sharing his real-life story of how an average Portuguese guy defied norms, embraced challenges, and forged a path to financial freedom. Tony De Gouveia wants people to know about the opportunities in network marketing and explore them to break free from the traditional 9 to 5 toil. With TUB as his tool, De Gouveia will continue his journey of inspiring and guiding others toward financial freedom.
