It wasn’t easy to get here. Sheets of rain pouring down on the Chicago area shut down roadways and made everything but canoe travel a near impossibility.
Notice the word near, though.
Because people came. Maybe a little late. Maybe a little wet. Definitely a little tired from making the trek. But they made it to Training with the Masters, an exclusive business-building event held in conjunction with this weekend’s United States Cross-Regional Conference (XRC).
And their determination to make it to the Douglas Stephens Conference Center was rewarded with a day full of opportunities to learn from masters of motivation, empowerment, science and success.
It started with roundtables, where attendees learned from top leaders and members of the Independent Distributor Council, and talked to USANA’s Executive Director of Scientific and Clinical Affairs Dr. Brian Dixon.
Here’s some of the highlights and “aha!” moments from the afternoon’s amazing slate of speakers:
Dr. Libby Weaver
“There are seven to eight pounds of bacteria in our guts.” (WOW)
Our bodies love it when we eat slowly, drink water between meals (not during), eat real food, get good sleep, and take care of our livers.
“We’re all here to wake each other up and give each other a sense of purpose.”
“Every word you choose makes your reality.”
“Detox the drainers.” (Get rid of the negative, draining energy in your life.)
“Leadership is when someone wants to be a part of your world, but they don’t know why.”
“A leader is the one that models the behavior they want done.”
Recruiting is the No. 1 skill a leader needs. “One great person can outperform 100 people.” And “great people are not trained, they are found.”
The crumbling of the industrial age makes the entrepreneur the king of the kingdom. Don’t miss this opportunity.
