Learn and Grow: MANER2019
This past weekend’s Northeast Regional Convention was a great event held at the perfect time as we begin the holiday shopping season – and with it one of the biggest retail events of the year which we all need to leverage as UnFranchise Owners. What made this event even more impactful was the fact that those in attendance had the opportunity to learn from incredible leaders like our President and COO Marc Ashley! I’ve included below a great write-up from Phil Guido where he talks about #MANER2019 and shares some great highlights. I love seeing UnFranchise Owners building their knowledgebase to ultimately become more effective entrepreneurs! Events like MANER2019 play a vital role in that regard!
From Phil Guido:
A huge congratulations should go out to the entire Northeast Region for an incredible 2019 Northeast Regional Convention. Marc Ashley, President, and Chief Operating Officer, was our headliner and he was amazing. Marc really brought excitement and education. He thoroughly covered the credibility behind Market America, and introduced the new Isotonix Astaxanthin, as well as sharing great information about some of our other new product introductions; Thymenol, CannibiQuin, and CannabiCool. Many top Market America Speakers from around the United States appeared on stage for the event, including; MA’s Top Earner, International Field President, Elizabeth Weber-Walliser, from North Carolina. David and Stacy Whited, Sothern Regional Directors, flew in from Kansas City. Melanie Nelson, Director of TLS Sales, just completed an International trip a day before the event, but she made it to Rhode Island and was a major contributor. Cullen Haskins, Southeast Regional Director, from Clearwater, Florida was there and delivered a phenomenal training on Sunday. Director and Million Dollar Club Member Sharon Lawrence, also from Florida, was part of a Health Professional panel along with Dr. Dan Witkowski and Dr. Tamara Weinstein. Corporate Sales Team Member, Andrew Chee came in from Toronto Canada, and Marc Bernacchi from Philadelphia and both contributed tremendous training segments, while also generating a lot of excitement. Additional speakers from the Northeast Region included Bonnie Philo, Executive Director and Lisa Grant, Field Vice President. A definite highlight of this year’s Northeast Regional was the training skit performed on Sunday by Northeast Regional Director, Phil Guido, with Local Coordinator, Benson Chen and an all-star cast (Bonnie Philo, Wendy Moquin, David and Stacy Whited, Barry Golomb, Amber Yang, and Min Liu), dressed in colorful costumes depicting chickens, ducks and geese. The skit sought out to illustrate JR Ridinger’s explanation of imprinting and how it applies to building the UnFranchise business. Continuing on that theme, a new award referred to as the Northeast Region Golden Goose Award was presented to 24 very deserving UnFranchise Owners, each of whom played an important role in the success of this year’s event. We would be remiss if we did not mention the epic DJ party and Karaoke Contest that was held on Saturday evening.
