The first annual Viridian PowerUP! 2010 Convention is now over—and perhaps the most valuable take-away from this milestone event was the electric feeling of urgency and excitement. This is only the beginning!
What a fantastic event. The passion, camaraderie and dedication displayed by all in attendance at this landmark convention has changed us forever (and for the better).
In fact, we had such a great time that we’ve already started prepping for next year’s convention. With the growth we’re experiencing, we’re going to have to rent out a football arena to fit all the Viridian Associates and customers into next year’s event. (More below.)

This event will change lives. There is perhaps no better way to truly understand the power of Viridian’s Sustainability Initiative than by experiencing this Brazil trip first hand. The trip includes two main segments—an opportunity to work to help reverse the effects of deforestation in the Amazon, and a chance to kick back and relax in Rio at a breathtaking world-class resort. Truly, the Brazil trip offers you the opportunity to do good (help save the rainforests), while doing well (living the LIFE). We hope to see you there!
For those who missed convention, we are sure you have been hearing the buzz from the 1,978 people who joined us in Atlantic City. Here’s a recap of what you need to know.
||New Starter Kits:
Certainly, one of the most exciting reveals at convention was the stunning new Viridian Starter Kits, given to all Associates who attended the event. This comprehensive kit is your go-to business tool, complete with new videos, presentation tools, the new compensation plan, educational training materials and more.
Moving forward, all Associates who signed up after October 17, 2010 will receive a starter kit upon enrolling. If you enrolled before the 17th and did not attend convention, we are happy to send you your kit. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with “New Starter Kit Request” in the subject line. Make sure to include your first and last name, your telephone number, your shipping address and Associate ID in your email.
Please note: You can only request a starter kit for yourself, and not on behalf of any other Associate in your network. Only one starter kit per Associate, please.
New Compensation Plan:
Another remarkable announcement at PowerUP! 2010 was the new Viridian Compensation Plan. We are thrilled with the new plan. We listened to your input, made changes you suggested, and we now have the most impressive and rewarding compensation plan in the industry.
The new plan includes new rank names, new rank advancement requirements, reallocation of funds to better support your long-term growth, and rewarding rank advancement bonuses. The new plan was designed to accurately reflect the growth of the company while creating better rewards for the fantastic results our Associates are getting. The new Viridian compensation plan is easy-to-understand, and increases your earning potential.
The new compensation plan will be effective on the November commission run. This means the new plan will reflect October’s utility records, and will be paid on the 5th day of November 2010.
Look for more information at upcoming trainings and from leaders in your area. You can view the new plan here.

The Pennsylvania Pre-Launch Blitz
Viridian Founder and CEO Michael Fallquist closed the show at PowerUP! 2010. In his final speech he announced all the exciting new market updates planned for Viridian in the near future. In Pennsylvania, you will be able to start enrolling customers November 22nd in the Duquesne and PECO markets. The opening of these markets, in addition to the PPL market, means Viridian will provide service to nearly 80% of the Pennsylvania market.
To give you all a little extra incentive to grow these markets, Mr. Fallquist announced the “The Pennsylvania Pre-Launch BLITZ” for the Duquesne and PECO markets.
This one’s simple. Simply build your business by signing up customers in these two new markets and you make bonus money. You receive $100 for every 10 customers enrolled between November 22nd and January 1st.
There is no limit to the number of bonuses you can receive during this time, so let’s really kick-off these new markets with a bang.
All customers must be qualified by January 31, 2011.
A Real No-Brainer
The coolest part about this Blitz is that the opening rate for these utilities makes this a real “no-brainer.”
This stuff sells itself. So start enrolling those customers beginning November 22nd, and take advantage of the $100 per 10 customers Pennsylvania Pre-Launch BLITZ money.
The Punta Cana Sprint to the Beach
Sand between your toes. Beautiful vistas. Sport fishing. Spa treatments. Naps by the pool. Sunny white-sand beaches. No worries.
Viridian is going to Punta Cana. Here’s how you can come along. The Punta Cana Sprint to the Beach is a simple race. Well, it’s more like a flat-out sprint. The first 15 people to cross the finish line win. This contest has nothing to do with your rank. It has to do with how bad you want it and how hard you’re willing to work, starting right now.
Here's how it works:
The first 15 people to get 4 Associates by Dec. 1st get:
A land package for 2—all inclusive—tasty food, a beautiful resort, 2 amazing activities (choose from deep sea fishing, golfing, spa treatments, etc.), a swag bag and more.
On your mark. . . . WAIT, there’s more. If you are one of the first 15 across the finish line, and you get another 4 Associates, for a total of 8 Associates, by December 1st: Viridian will cover your land package, and pay your airfare. That’s right. Fly and play and enjoy Punta Cana without paying a dime. It’s on us.
Got it? The first 15 to the finish line win. On your mark. Get set. Wait . . .
Plus, everyone else who gets their 4 new Associates by December 1st, is entered into a drawing for 5 additional spots!
That’s right. If you are the 16th Associate to qualify (or later), you still have a shot to win because everyone who gets their 4 Associates by December 1st will be entered to win one of 5 extra spots (to be determined by drawing).
But the only way to cross the finish line is to get 4 new Associates by December 1st. So what are you waiting for?
On your mark. Get set. GO!
Congratulations to our Associates who have already won their way to Punta Cana! Way to finish! We’ll see you there:
- Michael & Janet Pagano, from New Jersey, qualified with 5 new Associates (3 more and we’ll throw in airfare for two!)
- Ken DeAngelo, from New Jersey qualified with 4 new Associates
Plus, there are several Associates who have already personally sponsored 3 new Associates, and over 20 Associates who have already personally sponsored 2 new Associates. These Associates are right on the verge of crossing the finish line. Are you close? You better hurry! Keep working! Don’t hit the wall! You’ve GOT this. There’s room in the winner’s circle for YOU. Keep sprinting toward Punta Cana!
AskV has been working around the clock on your requests, questions and comments. But due to PowerUP! 2010, we're just a bit behind. Please be patient. We will respond to you! We anticipate being completely caught up by early next week. Thanks for your understanding.
