WOW! The energy is high and you can feel the anticipation in the air for today’s Treat’ em Right Seminar, happening right now in Detroit! As registration began there was a flood of excited distributors lining the halls, ready and waiting to get in to the room. Friends were reuniting, new friends being made and smiles all around. The Treat’ em Right is off to a great start, and as we opened the doors to the meeting the distributors were racing to get their seats, knowing they were in store for a powerful day and exclusive training moments.
Founder and CEO, Kody Bateman started the morning out, pumping up the energy by sharing his story of spending time on McCabe Avenue as a young man. Kody expressed his love for the streets and for music, during his opening speech he stated “Rhythm, it was all about the rhythm and it’s so important to find the rhythm in your life, I was able to find my own.” He then, as he calls it, “dropped a beat” and treated us to his very first rap he ever created.
Kody’s message to all ” We accept people of all kind, we take you as you are, just come on in. What you put in to this business is exactly what you get out of this business.” SendOutCards is moving onward and upward, making and changing lives around the world. SendOutCards is a way to take a piece of yourself and give it to the world.
We all know the highest rank a distributor can achieve is an Eagle. But what does it take to become one, and what are the key attributes an Eagle has? Eagles don’t flap their wings, they soar majestically at the highest heights possible, strategically with little to no effort. They stay laser focused on their goals and they are hunters. Unlike Eagle’s, chickens are the lowest flying bird at just a mere 3 feet off the ground, expending all their energy but not getting anywhere remarkable. Crows however, can fly high but they are the biggest enemy of the Eagle because they spend all their time chasing the Eagle, squawking and creating noise. The Eagle gives no attention to the crow and continues to fly higher and higher, effortlessly leaving the crow in the dust.
Rise above the noise. 87% of what we hear is negative and we need to commit ourselves to being apart of the 13% club.
Lori Smith and Bob Golden joined one another on stage to express what it’s like to live like an Eagle. To them here is what it means to be an Eagle:
“Doubt will kill more dreams than failure ever will.”
Opening your heart allows for others to do the same. Lori and Bob shared their own personal cards they have given to others expressing, “We are in the business of making someone feel better, there is only one purpose to life and that is to make someones life better.” Everything we do is built on relationships and what a better way to build and nurture a relationship then acting on your promptings to reach out to others.
“Why wait to celebrate someone at a funeral, when we can celebrate their life while they are living.”
Jerry Gadette, an Executive Distributor, owns a large insurance agency and when he realized the amount of clients he was obtaining, he wanted to send a subtle message to them that expressed his gratitude and thanks for being a customer of his. His agency implemented “Brownie Mondays”, where he would send out brownies to customers simply thanking them for their business and nothing else. “We treat people well, we don’t ask them for additional business but we let them know how grateful we are for their current business.”
Kody closed out the morning session with this repeated statement, “The story of your mind becomes the story of your life.” As we broke for lunch an exclusive invitation was given to the Eagle’s Nest members as well as the Executives and above to join one another in a private, plated lunch. This gave them special time to engage one another and to continue building bonds as leaders of SendOutCards.
Stay tuned for more updates coming to you this afternoon!
