The Best of 2017 World Conference


Market America | SHOP.COMs 2017 World Conference was held in Miami, Fla., Feb. 9-11 and was a resounding success. More than 25,000 people came to the American Airlines Arena for the event, which showcased exciting updates from the company including new technologies, new products and new strategic initiatives. If it was not clear before, World Conference hammered down the company’s main goal and theme for 2017. The Shopping Annuity® is the wave of the future, and it can truly change the way that people shop by converting your spending into earning. It was absolutely our best conference ever, and set the tone for the 2017 International Convention where we will be celebrating 25 years of entrepreneurial success! If you were there, you are now equipped to grow your business like never before. If not, here is a taste of what you missed.



JR Ridinger's Special Follow-up Message for MAWC2017 Attendees


Dear UnFranchise® Owners who attended MAWC2017 in Miami:


Thank you for being at World Conference and making it a magic moment for Market America and SHOP.COM. I hope this event inspired you to change something, and I pray you will join me in reaching the milestone of 50,000 Shopping Annuity® Master Members. We can change the world and create our own economy and when we reach that tipping point the Shopping Annuity Revolution will become unstoppable.


I want to make sure that you get the most out of your time at MAWC2017 and get a massive return on your investment. That’s why I created a short PowerPoint file with 11 slides that gives you my “takeaways” and “challenge” from MAWC2017, as well as 5 Simple Exercises to help put into action what you learned at World Conference. I didn’t have time to cover these particular slides during my closing presentation so this is the only way you’ll be able to access this crucial follow up information for MAWC2017.

You can access this important PowerPoint here: Follow Up To World Conference

Reviewing this file is so important because it can be used to ensure your investment of time and energy at World Conference really pays off so you can leverage results, experience growth and increase your ongoing income. This will help you build on the momentum of MAWC2017 by helping you immediately start changing things and stepping out of your comfort zone so you and your team can start climbing the stairway to success with the daily, weekly and monthly steps.


These are steps that anyone can easily take! You can do it! The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step… and tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life!


During Friday’s session at MAWC2017 I trained the field on how to build the business and reach new UnFranchise® Levels. I focused on the Basic 5, the method to the madness, ABC Pattern, and exponential leverage in the formula of the business. During my presentation you promised to assess and identify what business fundamentals you were not doing so you could discover areas where you can improve. You were asked to also identify parts of the Basic 5 that you were not doing consistently, which helps you reset the 2-to-3 year clock back to the correct time. This allows you to forgive yourself and start fresh!


Everyone in attendance agreed to do this and to set their clock back. I hope you set it back and can tell me what the new number is on the 2-to-3 year plan’s clock. What is your time?


You and your entire team can access the stage presentations and promotional videos from World Conference on and (see announcement below for direct links to each session). I suggest you review these videos with your team to help them capitalize on this monumental event. You may even want to select relevant ones for partners or new UnFranchise Owners (UFOs) and prospects and send it to them via email, text, or social media.


If you want to succeed you must demonstrate your belief and acceptance of the new you, the UnFranchise Business plan and goal. If you don’t demonstrate it, you do not totally believe or accept what you deserve and will inevitably NOT get what you want. Only by demonstrating belief through your actions will you fulfill your destiny and unlock your full potential. A good test of that is whether or not you have at least 3 tickets to MAIC2017 – the 25th Anniversary celebration of our business in Greensboro, N.C. this August. By not having tickets you’re jinxing yourself by setting up a roadblock that will prevent success!


Between now and August it needs to be your primary mission to get every “GoNow” there for International Convention. The only shortcut to success is getting people there – it’s as simple as that. If you’re a leader who’s committed to jumping UFO income levels, you need to have 10 tickets. You either have the tickets or you do not. You cannot sell a ticket you do not have. It’s also another great opportunity to Pay It Forward and help get other teammates to the event who might not otherwise be able to come.


Show me you’re a leader by sharing this message with your teammates and prospects who attended MAWC2017 and asking them to do the same.


Remember, the difference between success and failure is the successful person did what the person who fails did not do! In that sense, SUCCESS IS A CHOICE! We love you and believe in you, but you’ll never make it happen if you don’t believe in yourself first!


I believe in you. Keep Growing!



- JR Ridinger, Chairman and CEO
