This mornings session left us in awe and ready to find out what else was in store for us at this year’s Market America International Convention. It really all started off with a bang of a morning and the afternoon session was just as amazing as the morning session and yet we were able to find out even more about the advancements of our business.

Be Powerful with Motives – La La Anthony
The crowd was overjoyed to welcome ‘Girlboss’ – Entrepreneur and Actor, La La Anthony! As she quoted her second book, The Power Playbook, she spoke about how important it is to “Figure out who you are and what you want out of life,” to really achieve happiness in life. Having power allows you to get back up again after the struggles For others to know your value, you first have to know your worth. Put a plan together and move quietly, sometimes your family and friends are the last to know of your plans. Seems like knowing your “WHY?” has really been the theme of the weekend and La La reiterates the importance of establishing and believing in it. Once we know what we want to be, we then learn how to become that.
La La encouraged to promote your Motives Virtual Parties on social media and spread the word. The easiest part about having a passion for the beauty brand is because you, yourself, have faith in your Motives business and the products because, “Makeup makes people feel good.” Motives is a powerful tool and utilizing it will help you build your business.
Motives Business Building – Brandy Holden
Ready to go and energized, Motives Certified Trainer Brandy Holden, expressed the importance of Motives being a brand that builds relationships. “YOU are the brand, you have to believe in it,” to build your business and help people around you. Brandy shows us that first knowing and believing that you have the best product and brand are essential keys to building this business. With Motives you can help someone else feel great about themselves and those are the simplistic ways that Brandy has capitalized her business and she wants you to do the same!. ”You are the CEO and face of your business,” the everyday woman (or man, we found out later!) can build a strong business with Motives and can spread the word with their own story.
She invited on stage some of the most original “everyday women” from beauty professionals to new beauty advisors that have been successfully building and branding themselves as Motives Beauty Advisors. We also heard from several other beauty advisors that expressed the importance of shopping online to convert their spending into earning, and branding themselves as a Motives Makeup Artist.
Brandy also made an effort to express that Men can build with Motives as well. Dozens men spilled onto the stage with excitement and confidence, knowing that they too can be successful in the beauty industry with Motives.
Supervising Coordinators, Nick and Quimby Franovich were invited onto the stage to join the energetic crowd to encourage fellow UFO’s that “setbacks are a nice set up for comebacks.” Everyone can do this business when they apply the incredible tools already given to UFO’s and have the potential to become successful.
Motives New Colors & Campaigns – Kim Ashley & Maria Checa
Motives Creative Consultant Maria Checa and Motives Brand Director, Kim Ashley we’re up next. The two beauties eagerly took the stage with huge smiles on their faces and introduced the “I Am Motives” campaign expressing that “makeup, to a fashion lover, is like jewelry for her face.” Makeup adds the perfect touch and sparkle to a person’s confidence, and that is exactly what the two wanted to do with their new line for Fall/Winter. Some of the new makeup launches include the Motives Fiber Lush Mascara (available this holiday season), two new eye shadows perfect for the Fall/Winter collection, color correcting quads, a Kohl Liner, a new lash adhesive formula, Motives Creme Concealer and more!
All the exciting new vibrant colors, products and pigmentations had us on the edge of our seats and we could not get enough of the descriptions of the new products. Be sure to visit the Motives Booth to see all the new products.

SHOPPING ANNUITY MEMBERSHIP and the MPCP² (The Next Phase) – JR Ridinger
Our Founder and CEO, JR Ridinger makes an explosive entrance into #MAIC2016. “This all started out with 60 UFO’s and now we are at 20,000+ UFO’s” as JR expressed “we’ve been doing this for a loooong time”. He’s very proud of how far we have all come as a business and company. “We work the 45 year plan so that you can work the 2-3 year plan” and that is what JR wants you to know. He considers himself, “Chief UFO” as he is one of “us”.
JR made some of the most surprising and exciting announcements so far at MAIC: He named Marc Ashley as the New President of Market America Worldwide and Steve Ashley as President of SHOP.COM. Jaws were dropped and everyone shared in the excitement as they each took the stage to share the moment with JR and humbly accept the new roles.
“When you get the Shopping Annuity it opens up opportunities” for you, your business and your family. Maximizing the Major Market America Universities, you can get into all industries and do the one that you love or simply incorporate multiple as they are tailored to you. We have the opportunity to be part of multiple billion dollar markets, we are everywhere and that is a huge advantage to owning an UnFranchise business. To understand the Shopping Annuity and its power, you understand that “it is an idea whose time has come.”
JR spoke about the power of digital aggregation and how everyone is connected. Online shopping is a lifestyle and that is the Shopping Annuity. Utilizing shop essentials and assessments help you to share the word about this revolutionary concept, “We know what people want and we’ve got it.”
SHOP.COM is an incredible tool and requires a lot of back-end attention including security accesibitlites so that your customers shop safely, vendors that contribute to SHOP.COM are paid and inventory is always well stocked, images and image servers function up to date, etc. There are so many aspects that are behind the scenes but Market America hires experts to handle those types of things so that UFO’s may peacefully build their UnFranchise Business.
JR says, “This is the new beginning,” getting on board with the Shopping Annuity and converting your spending into earning will have you on the right path to success. When you share the Shopping Annuity with people, it’s like having a natural conversation, “Will you be a part of the Shopping Annuity Revolution?”
As UFO’s continue to strive for hitting the Shopping Annuity Bonus Program allows you to accumulate a maximum amount of BV almost 3 or 4 times more. “I will not stop until I fill this place with Directors and this is how it’s going to happen,” the Shopping Annuity is changing the way UFOs build and expanding their business even further. When this duplicates everyone is getting a piece of the success and of course BV and IBV which leads to great success.
Understanding the difference between the Shopping Annuity vs Traditional Annuity is key to the success of how you apply it to your lifestyle. “What if I tell you, you don’t need to put an upfront lump sum to start earning interest?”, this is the one thing that everyone should be completely excited and proud about. You no longer have to have a substantial amount of money in your savings account but to simply learn how to utilize the tools given by Market America.
The Shopping Annuity is the “Best kept secret” and you must maximize the power of your voice now and spread the word. Go further and not only do the Shopping Annuity but hit the Shopping Annuity Bonus Program. Everyone gets paid with the Shopping Annuity and the MPCP.

Power Profile – Ke Zhu and Joe Gerard
Ke Zhu and Joe Gerard share their success story and how far they have come as UFO’s in the business. They both agree that making it to the major events has played a huge role in the success of their business. Joe shared his upbringing and how hard his father worked. Ke Zhu, a Chinese immigrant, came to America at the young age of 12 years old with the belief in the American Dream. They are now retired from their job and building their business together. This is only to show that building from event to event is so important
B2B: WebSolutions, Shopping Annuity, & Your UnFranchise – Jeremy Fennema & Sarah Rose Stack
Sarah Rose and Jeremy started off with an interesting exercise on how UFO’s can utilize local businesses to grow their business through WebSolutions. Asking the crowd if they’ve ever gotten their nails done, spoken to an accountant or gotten a haircut, “Have you talked to these business owners about what you can offer?” As a UFO you can offer them better website solutions.
When you buy from a small business and help them be profitable your helping a child get dance lessons, you’re helping a family pay their mortgage, a student pay for education. “Small to Medium business owners is why our country is growing,” maximize your local community and talk to them about the things you can offer them.
Business to business relationships help your UnFranchise business grow, “It’s a major impact, just one web center has a $1000 retail profit!” You can utilize the retail profit to invest back into your business.
The “B2B Catalog,” incorporating the growth initiative, is available for purchase now. For further details come by the break out tonight at 7:30pm in the Victoria Ballroom.
