THE FOUNDER’S STORY
Zion is derived from the scripture which represents the City of Jerusalem among the Jews with a promise of restoration from loss and devastation of their lives and country. It also connotes the mountain of God among the Judeo-Christian Faith of a better state enjoying God’s abundance, protection and assurance of salvation. This was the inspiration of the founder and young CEO-President Ms. Fostine Margaux Tapiador fondly known as Charmie to her closest to start her own company.
Raised in challenging family environment of four siblings being the eldest, she was forced to explore extra income by selling candies and other stuffs during her student days. Little did she know that this would lead to her entrepreneurial journey. Pursuing a nursing major and career was really against her will with a push from the family of pursuing in the US for a greener pasture with her profession and while practicing it, her entrepreneurial drive continues doing direct selling and MLM business on the side from 2011-2013. It was a painful struggle knowing that deep within her she can be more and do more. She left home to be independent and her entrepreneurial journey. She did succeed at one point earning her first million registering her first Company as a Sole Proprietor with “PowerBank Item” sold from 1,500 to an income of 60k selling on line and the list of possible products went on until owning many on line stores in different e-commerce platforms.
She has earned her first million at the age of 21 doing direct selling and MLM
Officially registered as a Corporation last September 2019 just in time Ms. Charmi the founder turned 28. It was in her heart to spread the good news and share the blessing and wonders of Electronic Commerce or a.k.a. known as E-Commerce or On line business. This is a model using a platform of On Line store where Digital Marketing and Advertising are the means and strategies to showcase product and services through your own store. The On Line Business is a Multi Billion Dollar Business that paved the way from its pioneers such as EBAY, AMAZON.COM of the American spheres, ALIBABA of the China’s and our very own Lazada and Shopee.
Motivated by her own experience of success, Charmi wanted to share the breakthrough business by mentoring-coaching and training who would sign up and subscribe to the platform. According to Richard Gabriel Bonifacio the COO-GM of Zion, E Commerce is the “Great Equalizer” to do business nowadays. As a former banker-corporate employee and OFW in Singapore for almost a decade. After discovering and trying the revolutionary business and earning six figure income made him realized that he can already stop being swamped by the thinking of a greener pasture and facing the challenge of being away with your family. Richard decided to go back home, do E Commerce at his pace and convenience while spending more quality time with the family. Richard met and was mentored by the younger Charmi and has decided to join forces in spreading this business.
Not just opportunity but an explosive business unlimited opportunity awaits for Jonathan or “Jojo” Toress as the Chief Marketing and Sales Officer. He is known in the circle of MLM-Network Marketing Industry being a Consistent Leader-Achiever but was hopping around finding the “right and stable” business or company he can see himself long term. As a “green card holder” and almost settled in the US, he decided to go back and was persuaded by Charmi to join her in setting up Zion and help empower many people through this revolutionary business. Jojo resolved to himself that this is the right business and company for him and surrendering his green card are all worth the risk as he sees bigger vision with Zion.
