Today starts our little vacation I’ll call it. We were able to attend Mike and Brandie Wagner’s Open last night at the Holiday Inn and it was ON FIRE. WOW. There is a reason why this market is on fire, because we invest time into people and build amazing relationships in and out of the business and we in succession are doing what the leaders before us have done. Every single person before us has built a successful business and we are literally riding the coat tails and soaking it all up. Just amazing. Last month another amazing couple entered their Emerald Qualification and it’s just leader after leader after leader. People wonder why there have not been many diamonds breaking in the last little while and that’s because people are just not wanting to step up. Well this market is, and you’ll see two new diamonds come from this market probably at FED 2011 and many more Emeralds including ourselves!
So Monday we fly to Seaside Oregon to attend moving up, I’ve talked a bit about it before and really I have no idea what to expect. I’ve heard some pretty amazing things come out of it from previous people that went and we are pumped to get the higher level of association and just get around people that are moving on in their business and see what it is they’ve done to create such success. I’m really excited to explore the Oregon coast though, I’ve heard it’s pretty amazing and cannot wait to get up and go for a run along the beach. Love it!
Friday we will head back inland to Portland where the Duncan Family Reunion will take place. This is where Lindsay went to her first function and where I almost didn’t let her go because of my stubbornness and scepticism. Now I’ll get to experience this function for the first time as official Eagles’ even though we are Double Eagles (we were not Double Eagle’s during qualification month for Family Reunion). Either way it will be nice to sit at the front of the stage and just be able to soak in the function from the front. I know we had a discussion earlier on this blog about it doesn’t matter where you sit its all the same information. That is 100% true it is the same information, however it’s how it’s delivered and for me personally I’d much rather be at the front where I can see the speaker live instead of via the screen and I get to feel more impacted because its like the speaker is talking to you. Same idea about concerts, why do people fight to get at the front of the row for a concert? They feel the experience is better right at the front where the musician is literally sweating over them. Same idea.
Its going to be a great weekend and week coming up and I could not be more excited to celebrate our growth but more importantly get as much information as we can coming out of Moving Up so we can share with our team and the leaders that are growing and riding our coat tails. We have a responsibility to our team to help build them into leaders so they can lead their own organization into greatness.
I love this market we are in and you betcha it’s different from anything you’ve seen. While others out there may have quit, or said it just didn’t work for them or what not, I’m sorry for that. However we’ve got something special out here which is why it’s catching the attention of World Wide Dreambuilders and even Amway Global Canada is saying “what are you guys doing out in Alberta??”. The answer really is being CORE and doing what other WWDB Leaders have done before us. Its working so why change it?
