Like it or not, myriad factors have made the first three quarters quite interesting, including an escalating economy, a decline in unemployment, Washington and the Trump administration dramatically reducing our regulatory burden, consumer confidence rising, threats from trade wars and escalating tariffs, and the beginning of an unpredictable political season that is just getting underway.

Sometimes I feel with all this swirling around me I don’t know what I should focus on first. One minute, I’m elated over the prospects from a booming economy — a chance to make money. The next minute, I’m listening to all the rhetoric coming out of Washington and I think that the good times will evaporate just as quickly as they have begun. I now know what a pinball feels like being bounced all over the place.

If you are like me, you are looking for a little peace of mind, a little inspiration and someone to talk to who gets what we all are going through. Personally, I can’t wait until NETWORK in Scottsdale, Arizona, Oct. 31-Nov. 2 at the Fairmont Princess where I can meet with hundreds of distributors that all are looking for the same answers.

At NETWORK each year there’s an opportunity to be inspired by attending thought-provoking education sessions and by networking with the industry’s most positive and motivational people. Most importantly, it’s the one time of the year that I can engage with my team leaders in
motivational sessions and as a team we always go back to work with a renewed spirit and enthusiasm to reach our goals and succeed.

Hundreds of members have gained insight, education, trends and motivation by attending NETWORK. Year after year ASA has delivered a program that you can’t find anywhere else and it’s definitely well worth the investment of your time.

And this year’s NETWORK again is packed with strong programs. If you are serious about building the future of your company and enhancing the success of your team, I’d urge you to come to NETWORK and see what all of the excitement is about.

For many of you, it’s been way too long since you’ve attended NETWORK. Isn’t it time that you and your team members find out what all the excitement is about?

I hope to see you in Scottsdale for what promises to be the industry’s biggest event of the year!
