Frank Marone -- Top Reasons to Attend PowerUP! 2016: Celebrate Success

Frank Ampys

There are so many reasons to attend PowerUP! 2016 (Sept. 30 to Oct. 2, National Harbor, Maryland) that we can’t possibly cover them all at once. So, as we count down to the big event, we will highlight the top reasons why you should make every effort to participate.

This week, Viridian Ambassador Frank Marone shares his sentiments on how the year’s premier event celebrates success.

You want to be as good as you can be, of course. In our business that means being a strong leader and a good teacher, and you can’t do it alone. You need a team of people who know what they’re doing—who are trained to show each new Associate how to become a leader.

PowerUP! brings you face-to-face with Viridian’s top producers as well as industry experts to help you develop the skills you need to succeed. The fact that network marketing guru Eric Worre is one of our keynote speakers this year is reason enough to attend. I once paid thousands of dollars to attend one of his events, and you can have the advantage of experiencing his teachings and training first-hand at PowerUP!. Even if you’re just starting, why wouldn’t you come hear Eric Worre and see what the company’s all about?

It’s the stories from Eric Worre and our Viridian colleagues that will inspire you to return to your business at the end of three days with renewed energy—no pun intended. Meeting the top players is the reason why people go, and why they leave with a different frame of mind.

Everyone is there to mingle and get to know each other a little better. Being with like-minded individuals who share your beliefs and attitudes can be truly motivating. Quite honestly, there are a lot of negative people out there, and that negativity will eat them—and you—up. Instead, surround yourself with positivity: Come hear the success stories from Viridian’s top performers. If you’re struggling, let them motivate you to try something new and achieve success.

PowerUP! is all about celebrating each other’s successes. Take the Ampy Awards, for example. My partner Joe Occhiogrosso and I won the 2015 Generation V Award, given to the Associate (or Associates) who embodies everything it means to be Generation V—from building a business and growing a team to representing the brand and supporting a sustainable future. Now, I know that this might not necessarily inspire the new Associate of three weeks or three months, but you’ll hear from a multitude of people and I can promise that one of them is sure to strike a chord that resonates with you.

For example, one Ampy Award goes to the rookie of the year. This individual is selected based on a variety of business-building metrics, such as personal customer and Associate enrollments, rank advancements and business development. Grab a moment with this person later on and find out what he or she has been doing well, and then use that knowledge to generate success of your own!

PowerUP! is an education in and of itself. You truly come to understand the impact of this company. It’s not just about making a few bucks—this is about a lifestyle change: Going green, contributing to the greater good. We change people’s lives, and we have the chance to change ourselves, mentally and financially.

Financial success is important to all of us. Anyone who says they’re not in this for money is full of baloney. Don’t get me wrong; it’s great that you have the ability to help the environment, but achieving financial success is critical and the reason many people come to PowerUP!. You’re going to hear from the people who became Directors, the people who became Partners, the people who became Ambassadors.

You’ll leave with the confidence to know you can do this, and how to do it. This is not a business where you can be on your own and do great things. You can’t go at it alone. If I know what I’m doing and go along doing it on my own, even after I’ve brought five new people into the business, my business will never, ever grow.

The system works by duplicating itself over and over again. If you’re doing well, it’s because everyone you’ve brought in has been trained correctly. That’s the way to real success: teaching and training everyone who comes down the pike.

PowerUP! is a great opportunity to learn firsthand from the pros in our business and industry. These professionals will fuel your drive to boost your Viridian business long after you leave Maryland. This year the focus will be on doing just that: elevating your business, your life, your purpose. Take advantage of PowerUP! 2016. Join us to be transformed and inspired like never before!


With the recent announcement of a new direction for Viridian, PowerUP! now offers the added bonus of hearing directly from our new leaders on future growth plans for the company.
