As I reflect upon all the moments we shared last weekend in Dallas, my main wish for you is to remember that feeling you took away from the event. Conferences are so important to our growth and culture because they’re a time for us to motivate and inspire one another, network with old and new friends, learn best practices from leaders leading by example (e.g. Saturday workshops from Hawaii winners), embrace the vision of the future, hear new innovations related to our products (e.g. SS Biotech tour and the RLV Hemp Extract + Melatonin) and new technologies to apply in your business (e.g. Get Digital), and hear industry trends from special guest speakers Steve Reid and Paul Adams.
I could go on about the value of conference, but to sum it all up in a sentence, conference builds everyone’s wall of belief, mine included. It builds my belief knowing that we have:
- a life-changing product line that continues to grow;
- a business opportunity that is more relevant and modern than ever; and most importantly
- passionate people that are committed to a shared future.
People are what make our business special and successful—past, present, and future. For years, I’ve typically felt this way after a conference, but this one was different because I sensed the impact went deeper for those that attended.
Perhaps you were in Dallas to simply reunite with old acquaintances or to hear what’s new, and that’s okay. We appreciate everyone in Reliv. But if you were in Dallas to make 2020 better than 2019 in your business, then I implore you to maintain that emotion for the next five months until we meet again in St. Louis.
Remember how you felt, remember the commitment you made to yourself, remember your goals for 2020 which perhaps might include the trip of a lifetime to Hawaii. Don’t let the energy fade! Keep it bottled up inside you because distractions, as well as ups and downs, will happen. Anything worth achieving will be met with resistance.
For the next five months, be intentional with sponsoring new customers and distributors. The key is to be customer-centric and distributor focused at the same time. Get your leaders registered for St. Louis in July to experience what you felt in Dallas. Invest five months, and see what happens!
Earning the Reliv trip to Hawaii can become a reality, and you’ll also be building a thriving business! My advice: Keep your WHY front and center in your mind and DON’T LET THE MOMENT FADE when you saw a glimpse of your promise of the future.
In the meantime, we’d love to see posts on social media from anyone who attended RLC Dallas. Post a photo and tell us about your commitment! Snap a picture of the goals you wrote down in your exclusive 2020 business planner and share it with us on social media with the hashtag #ilovereliv. If earning the trip to Hawaii this year is your goal, take a selfie and tell us “I’m in for #Hawaii2020!
