The [Mastermind Event]…represents everything that is right about network marketing.
(PRWEB) December 11, 2014
This year’s network marketing Mastermind Event took place in Orlando, Florida, from October 31 – November 2. The event, which was the 10th annual gathering of its kind for network marketing professionals, boasted many industry-leading speakers. These professionals had worked months in advance to deliver informative content to their colleagues in an engaging manner. Among them were Chris Brady and Orrin Woodward, both of whom are ‘New York Times’ bestselling authors as well as cofounders of LIFE Leadership. Throughout the weekend, top leaders from around the world discussed best practices, shared helpful tools of the trade and inspiring success stories, and made lasting connections and friendships.
The Mastermind Event, founded by networker Art Jonak, is a closed event for members of the network marketing profession where top performers share information specific to the profession that has been tested and proven. Jonak and his Mastermind team say that networkers from over fifty countries and one hundred plus different direct selling companies have attended their event and that many of the attendees, like Woodward and Brady, are proven leaders running world-class organizations, so newcomers and those at all levels have an opportunity to mingle with and learn from the best and brightest the profession has to offer: networkers who have decades of real field experience and are still active in the industry. Says Woodward, “For the last five years, I have supported the event because it represents everything that is right about network marketing.” He cites Jonak’s personal sacrifice and commitment to excellence, the “world-class…leadership character, competence, and communication skills” of the Mastermind faculty, and the prevalent attitude of camaraderie as main reasons for his support. Woodward calls what Jonak has created a “win–win culture” where driven, passionate attendees from hundreds of different organizations lift one another and the entire industry up rather than tearing each other down.
Woodward and Brady, whose LIFE Leadership organization produces materials covering what they call the 8 Fs of life (Family, Finances, Fitness, Faith, Following, Freedom, Friends, and Fun) to help users personalize their goals and find solutions for greater success and satisfaction in all areas of life, were in good company among the other speakers at the Mastermind event, such as Sarah Robbins, Ørjan Sæle, and Randy Gage. Woodward says, “Everyone who attends the event leaves with a boatload of nuggets to improve him- or herself personally and professionally.” A prevailing idea behind the event is that when so many have so much to offer, attendees are able to network, learn, and grow while having fun and creating lasting friendships with other professionals in their field.
