“Thank you so much for the inspiring and highly informative presentation you provided our shareholders July 15th, 2014 at our meeting in Hawaii. I had so many of our member distributors convey their appreciation for the thought provoking production you delivered that day. You are a true professional and you know your business. Often we have knowledge of activities and actions we should have in place in our businesses but for whatever reason, over time, they cease to exist. I think that pieces of your message was an awakening for many in our audience. Thanks again!”
