Wow, just wow. There were many magical moments at the 2019 Market America World Conference, it’s increasingly hard to choose a favorite as each event gets more and more exciting! We had such a fun time celebrating all of the accomplishments of our UFO’s and announcing exciting new products to come. Check out our top 5 favorite moments of MAWC 2019.
Tony Bowling Tribute: JR Ridinger had the entire arena in tears on Saturday as he delivered a touching, heartfelt tribute to Tony Bowling. Tony was more than an UnFranchise Owner. He was a pioneer, friend, mentor, and he will forever be greatly missed.
Jerry Siciliano Award: The Jerry Siciliano Award is always one of our favorite moments of World Conference. This year’s winner, Bonnie Philo, was incredibly deserving of the award. Relive this heartfelt moment:
Fat Joe’s Presentation: President of Urban and Latino Development Joseph “Fat Joe” Cartagena lit up the stage as he shared that anyone can be their own boss in Market America. Fat Joe said, “Everyone says America is divided. Come to this arena and see how this is a family.” From there, Fat Joe discussed the importance of attending meetings and how to be a leader with the “first one to arrive, last one to leave” attitude. Check out the full presentation:
Loren Ridinger’s Presentation: Nothing inspires us more than a presentation from Loren Ridinger! This event was no different as Loren reminded us that we are the pilots in our own lives. If we wish to see change within our lives and business, it is up to us to make it! No one is going to make the change for us. Reminding us to step outside of our comfort zone and not let fear control us, Loren said, “Do it again. Do it again. Try again. Fail again. Change everything now so you can have everything you want later.” The decisions you make today determine your tomorrow.
JR’s Geese Presentation: JR delivered a phenomenal presentation as always, but this time he really put things into perspective with his geese presentation. In order to help us understand the importance of duplication and proper training with new UnFranchise Owners, JR shared an analogy of how fowl imprint on their mothers. Let’s all be geese!
