Jenna Marzullo - PowerUP! Changed my Life...Here’s How it Can Change Yours
Over the last six years since joining Viridian I have learned that there are two types of people in network marketing: those who are part of the company and those who have the company become part of them.
The first kind of person may participate in network marketing as a side job. It doesn’t matter what they actually do for a living, it’s simply that Viridian is only a small part of what they identify with. For these people, Viridian is more of a hobby that they fit in among all of the other things they do in life. Don’t get me wrong, we at Viridian love these individuals. In fact, that’s the beauty of network marketing; Associates can be as little or heavily involved in the business model as they desire. I often see people who participate in Viridian in their spare time, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
For the second kind of person, however, Viridian has become a part of them. In other words, the business model has become embedded into everything they do and they truly understand being part of Generation V. There’s this magic moment that happens when they decide to have Viridian become ever-present in their life, versus being something outside or separate from themselves.
The difference between these two types of people is that the latter individual can identify these defining moments that inspire them and establish a heightened connection with the business model.
PowerUP! is an event that sparks these magic life-defining moments, enabling Associates to make this connection happen. Most often it’s an event that brings people to life and inspires them to have Viridian become part of them. We mean it when we say that PowerUP! is the 36 hours that will change everything for you. The event is one of, if not the, strongest resource for Associates looking to climb in rank and see unparalleled success. PowerUP! truly enables Viridian to become a life changing opportunity for Associates, the kind that catapulted myself and many others like me in rank.
Attending PowerUP! 2015: The Power of People
So, what exactly about PowerUP! is so powerful? Looking back on my journey with Viridian I can tell you that, at its core, this is a business based on people and relationship-building. Viridian is brought to life by its people.
Because of this there is an energy within this business—and no, not the type of energy that is sold. I’m talking about a different kind of energy, one that cannot be seen but rather felt. It’s the kind of energy that multiples and intensifies in the presence of others with similar vision. This powerful energy can lift you up, inspire you to take action and can truly be life changing!
When you attend an event in which thousands of people are cheering on and learning from one another, that positive energy rapidly multiples and gains intensity. The energy becomes so powerful, in fact, that I have seen people who struggled with the business for some time attend PowerUP! and transform their businesses within just a few months—ranking three or four times within that time period.
My advice for anyone considering attending PowerUP! 2015 is this: Don’t just go to the event. Truly immerse yourself in it. Give yourself over to this event fully and wholeheartedly to have the best experience possible. If you’re planning to go, you might as well maximize the impact that the event, and the power of people, can have on your life.
At the end of the day, it’s the way you decide to attend PowerUP! that will enable you to succeed. As someone who attended the very first PowerUP! event in 2010, I have seen firsthand the techniques that were applied by leaders in this business (including myself) who attended these events long before their pin rankings. Here are some of them:
- Ask questions: Talk to presenters before and after sessions. The sessions don’t end when the event schedule says they do; they end when you’re ready for them to. Ask presenters how you can become better at what you do. Pick their brain on tricks of the trade. Even today I stay before and after sessions because there might be a question I didn’t know how to answer or that the presenter might have answered better than I could.
- Envision yourself up there: When I first started attending PowerUP! I would envision myself up on that keynote stage one day. For me it was never a “maybe” but rather a “when” scenario.
- Carry a notebook with you: When you ask presenters questions, be sure to have a pen and paper ready. After all, those great insights you gain will prove useless if you can’t remember them. You can never take enough notes.
Be open to the possibility of how PowerUP! can change your life. The event is a great marker for your success in this business. Once you make the shift from being part of Viridian to Viridian becoming part of you, absolutely everything changes.
