On Aug. 8–11, a group of more than 20,000 entrepreneurial-minded people gathered for Market America | SHOP.COM 2019 International Convention. They traveled from all over the world to Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, N.C., to learn about the UnFranchise® Business — and Market America’s Corporate leaders and top UnFranchise Owners (UFOs) did not disappoint. The enthusiastic crowd received a wealth of information (along with a dose of fun and inspiration) to motivate them to build their own businesses and achieve their dreams.
Senior Executive Vice President Loren Ridinger welcomed the eager attendees and offered words of encouragement, reinforcing the philosophy that Market America has maintained for 27 years … that the company is built on product and powered by people, and that this is the best way to attain the time and financial freedom that we all dream of. Chairman and CEO JR Ridinger provided top tips on becoming a hopeless success, giving the crowd a true education on how to find the right people to help you build your business. He explained the phenomenon of imprinting and assured attendees: “You will end up with the right people if you do this process correctly.”
President and COO Marc Ashley showed his usual enthusiasm, rushing onto the stage to highlight the new products and developments that will continue to push the company forward in taking the shopping world by storm. “You’re going to think I’m a broken record because I always say these are the best products on the planet, and I truly believe it!” he said. In a moving and emotional segment, Marc and Loren came together on stage to introduce and present the inaugural Tony Bowling Award, which is given to a UFO who shows the same loyalty, integrity and character that the late Tony Bowling himself was known for. Tony’s wife, Pam, was the recipient of the award, but she herself has unfortunately fallen ill and could not receive it in person.
In his always-anticipated “Close,” JR reinforced the idea that ongoing income is the reason that UFOs get into the UnFranchise Business, and that in order to achieve this goal, one must continue to sponsor people and imprint upon them the proper way to operate their business. A UFO cannot simply sponsor one or two people and expect success. “Get the geese together and show them how to do it. Imprint them. Once they get old, start another one,” JR said.
