Khun Mon Sayamon   Wimonsombut (Mother), who passed on the success of the 7-Eleven business to her son

In the past, I was a rice merchant before moved to Bangkok at the age of 18 years old to study. During that time, I did my study as well as opened a shop to sell stuff in a two-room commercial building. Then, I had got married following by having three children. I started to feel very tired at that moment because I didn’t think it was worth selling our products, sending those products to customers, and looking after our own staff. As a result, I decided to change my career and throw away my previous life for betterment of my family, so I went to ask for a consultancy from my sister who was running a 7-Eleven store. That was the beginning of the decision to turn my life into a store partner from 1 store to 7 stores in the present, running for over 18 years with love and dreaming of becoming a business executive with my own two hands. At present, all my 3 children have bachelor’s and master’s degrees, making me proud and confident that the 7-Eleven business has helped our family secure and ready to pass on to the children to continue this business.

At first, I had a career as a company employee in the field of market research. However, I wanted to do my own business so I returned to help my mother to run her 7-Eleven shop. I saw the management system of the shop from my mother which I could understand quickly as I had absorbed it since my childhood when I used to help her from adding items to cleaning the shop. I had a strong bond with this business and saw it as a business that helped keep our family secure, therefore, I decided to prove myself by investing in order to be the owner of a 7-Eleven store. It was a great step that made me and my family proud of myself. Nowadays, I see my mother’s smile every day, ensuring me that the business makes my family happy so I intend to manage the store and build a strong team to prepare for the next branch expansion.
