SNAP Essentials – Marty Weissman
Executive Vice President Marty Weissman took the stage as he took us back to MAWC 2016 to remember the launch of the new SNAP products. This time, at MAIC 2016, he kept us in suspense as he revealed the brand new look for SNAP. With the incredible functionality and new look of the SNAP bottles, it was well worth the wait!
This new look includes a very convenient color coded system, its environmentally safe, the bottles are reusable, and it’s easy to use. Marty knows how important it is to fund your Shopping Annuity, “It’s a no brainer for the Shopping Annuity,” so this makes it even easier for you and your household to convert your spending into earning.

DNA Miracles – Amber Ridinger-McLaughlin, Duane McLaughlin, Marty Weissman & Family
Market America has always been proud of the family aspect of the company and growing together. It’s no surprise that Duane McLaughlin and Amber Ridinger-McLaughlin were accompanied by their two children, with one on the way, as they took the stage with the “Godfather” of DNA Miracles, Marty Weissman, to announce the new DNA Miracles updates and product launches.
Duane asked the crowd, “What is the most important thing to you?” For Duane and Amber, the most important thing are their children, “It’s not about us, it’s about them.” That is why they invest so much time and love into their DNA Miracles line. “Our promise for DNA miracles is to give you the BEST products.”.
With immense passion about the products, “It’s so close to our hearts”. Duane shared the new DNA Miracles Chewable Multivitamins which offers “academic performance and mental focus, antioxidant support, includes 15 vitamins and minerals that are essential for the development of children.”
Marty shared, “and you earn BV on these products. They are fantastic products to build your Shopping Annuity,” as he shared the importance of adding this line to your lifestyle.

The Power of Pycnogenol – Dr. Steven Lamm
With Dr. Steven Lamm’s extensive knowledge in the medical field, he took the stage to express the importance of investing in the knowledge of your health. Market America is about family. Having a family comes with great responsibility and you need to have the courage to take care of your health and family.
What you invest and how you invest will determine your quality of life. Dr. Lamm expresses everyday things like exercising, getting enough sleep, and being happy, adds to the quality of life. With Isotonix and Pycnogenol being the main active ingredient, it “will enhance muscle fiber and muscle elasticity.” Your brain will work effectively. It offers things like keeping you focused, attentive, maintaining great memory, improving collagen in your skin, and vision health.
Dr. Steven says as a Doctor, “We will keep you alive, we will not let you die,” but you need to decide you want good health.
Power Profile – Gary Rogers
Director and Million Dollar Club Member, Gary Rogers, candidly shared his experience of being a young hard working gym trainer with a salary of $11,000 a year. He shared that his “approach was to work harder and harder and work more hours so that I can feed my family.” As he spoke about when he began to climb the management ladder.
He was shown the plan and politely declined until something happen, he changed his mentality. “The power of residual income,” then became what he knew he had to maximize.
“Most people think there is no way out,” he knew why he was doing what he was doing. All he needed was his family, and for them to be taken care of.
As he read a letter that his daughter wrote when she was younger, “All I want is for dad to be home more,” it inspired him to pursue his UnFranchise Business even further. Gary told us that after receiving great advice from [now] International Field Chairman, Elizabeth Weber, after attending a local training, she advised him to never miss the major events, those were the ones that impacted her life and business.
Gary Rogers then realized how important it was to never miss an event. “Get to the events,” if you’re serious about building your business, build from event to event and bring your team along.
Breakdown to Breakthroughs – Loren Ridinger
Senior Executive Vice President of Market America, Loren Ridinger took the stage with a very moving quote by Helen Keller, “the only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.” We need to have vision not only when it comes to building your business but with life.
“We are all so blessed to be here because we are all here for the right reasons,” she passionately expressed that when you align your thoughts with the right decisions you can be successful at anything. Life happens and there are struggles that may get in the way but never shut people and your team out of your life because, “The only way we can make it better is if we celebrate each other.” By supporting each other and celebrating each other, the process of growth begins to prosper.
There are so many ideas that we have and see in our minds and, “We’re doing nothing with what we see. ” You can’t fix something by having the same mindset as those negative thoughts, you just can’t; and Loren encouraged all to expand their thinking and possibilities.
She challenged the crowd with this one question “What is it that you want?” You can’t skip the steps to succeed, you can’t skip the process. “What is your drive, what is your passion?”
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been in the business and the success you think you have not seen, “Let today be your first day.” It’s time to start taking things serious and not become discouraged about past failures.
“In order to have a breakthrough, you need to break down”, sometimes it takes failures for us to realize the important things in life that we need to accomplish. “Failure is a part of success,” the most successful people have seen the the darkest places, but they never gave up. Put a plan into action and move forward, do the hardest things first.
Don’t quit just because it’s not happening in the time that you thought it would. “Things don’t always happen on the timeline that you have set out, yet time is all we have.” The key is to, “keep on trying and doing.”
“Stop making excuses” about your business and DO! Build it with passion and accept failure and obstacles as an opportunity for growth.
“Don’t you let anybody get the best of you. This is YOUR time!”
Powered By People: Recognizing Your Success – Andrew Weissman & Jim Winkler & International Field Chairman, Elizabeth Weber

They recognized and invited to the stage Director’s, Executive Director’s, Field Vice President’s, Executive Field Vice President’s, Senior Executive Field Vice President’s, Field President Ben Ginder, International Field President’s, International Field Chairman Elizabeth Weber. As always, Elizabeth had some very encouraging and inspiring words to share with the crowd. She is always challenging us to be the best that we can possibly be in this business! “11 years of failing, people laughing. But you know what, I got rid of that negative energy because I don’t have room or time for it. And now look at this. The Shopping Annuity has taken over,” Elizabeth shared passionately!
In the midst of calling up all these wonderful leaders, Executive Director Bobby Cannata prepared a moving letter to share with fellow UFO’s. Bobby was recently diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive cancer. He gave a special thanks to Loren Ridinger and Elizabeth Weber for being such a great support. This further confirms the essence of creating a family presence in Market America.
Power Profile – Trina Maduro
Professional Coordinator, Trina Madero, was invited on stage to share her story on how she became the entrepreneur she is today. Trina passionately spoke about the one thing she had was love and passion for life. Growing up in a single parent home, with 14 siblings she knew she was destined to bring change and felt the need to take care of her family.
When encountering several obstacles of being raised in the ghetto, it seemed like Trina would not be able to succeed. But when she was introduced to Isotonix OPC-3 and the business, “it was like the windows of heaven opened up on my life.”
She quoted Mark Twain, “the day you were born and the day that you found out why,” expressing the importance to live life with purpose.
It was when she attended Convention that she realized she “can do this.” She passionately shared the need and urgency for you to get your tickets and come to MAWC 2017! “If you are serious about your business, then make some some serious moves.”
