I went to Las Vegas last weekend for the Xango regional convention. I normally don’t like to go to these kind of events but I do because I always learn more about my company and products there than anywhere else. I can get on training calls and watch webinars all day but it is not the same as standing in line with actual distributors and hearing their stories. I enjoy the motivational speakers and product and business training but I don’t enjoy being away from home and animals and around big groups of people.
This year I decided to do things a bit differently and I skipped the first day on the convention and half the second day. I came in for the keynote speaker and the after the event training. This was perfect for me. I found myself actually looking forward to the event and I was not disappointed. The afternoon session was wonderful and Les Brown is a very motivating speaker. Several of the founders spoke as well. Xango is growing where so many traditional companies are downsizing and facing financial trouble. I think I heard more good news from Xango in 36 hours than I have heard in the last 6 months from all other sources. There has been a 45% increase in people reaching the 1k title since the first of the year and a 38% increase in 5k title during the same time period. Most of this in the last 2 months with a new incentive program the company put into place which pays sponsor and extra $250 dollars for every new person they help find 3 people to come into their group. Because the Xango founders come from a network marketing background they know what actions will give us the most success and they reward those actions. They are truly on our side and know that their success depends on out success.
The real power of these events for me is what happens between the meetings and trainings. I roomed with a close friend of mine that I only get to see at events. Jean and I served together on an advisory board with our previous company and we got to know each other well. I was so excited when I found out she was also in Xango. We got to catch up on each other’s lives and spend some great, quality time together. I also got to spend some time with my upline sponsors and great friends, John and Ana Mann. John has been a hero of my for years and I am enjoying Ana more and more as I get to know her. Her dedication to our group and Xango in general is special. So much so that she was one of only 30 top levels builders who spoke to us at the Sunday training. Each leader had 6 minutes to share their most important secret and Ana spoke on edification, the power of team building and branding the culture of your team. She made the most of her 6 minutes and she definitely walks her talk. I have learned so much from listening to Ana and being on 3 way calls with her.
I have not even scratched the surface on everything I learned but it is a start and I will talk about more in a future post. Off now to see some horses. Madalyn
