Welcome to #MAIC2017 – Celebrating 25 Years of Success
Welcome to the 2017 Market America International Convention! This event is the culmination of 25 incredible years of innovation, inspiration, and motivation – but we’re just getting started. I believe we’re just now scratching the surface of our full potential with the UnFranchise and the Shopping Annuity, and with knowledge you take away from International Convention you’ll be in tremendous position to continue to capitalize on the ever changing retail landscape. We don’t react to the future – we create it!
Thank you all for making the commitment to be here at #MAIC2017 this week to learn and grow together with brilliant entrepreneurs from all over the world. While we all have diverse backgrounds and different stories to share, our journey of success is one that we take together. To me, the comradery and support we provide one another means more than anything – and I’ve been so blessed to witness a small business we started 25 years ago blossom into an international powerhouse with passionate entrepreneurs all over the world who are committed to helping others.
There’s truly no other business like ours on earth, and in many ways our company has transcended the common notions of what a business is about – and has evolved into something much more special – a family. During the past 25 years we’ve experienced growth and success that most companies only dream of – but none of this would have happened without the belief and commitment of our UnFranchise Owners, and for that I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Individual UnFranchise owners JUST LIKE YOU are what has always made this company so special – never forget that!
This year’s International Convention will be like none other you’ve ever experienced as we look back on 25 amazing years while also laying the foundation for our continued success as we lead the parade and help everyone wield their power as a consumer in the digital age.
I’ve included below a list of blog resources that will help you get the most out of this crucial event. I suggest you take a moment to review them, and to also make sure you’re following all our social media channels, while also utilizing our official event hashtag #MAIC2017 when posting on social media.
