On this day, while Market America celebrates the launch of the first phase of our Shop.com integration, we also celebrate something equally as significant. Today happens to be the birthday of Market America’s COO, Marc Ashley – a day that is very special to me. Marc is a driving force in this industry, and represents this company with integrity and passion beyond words. Marc has been with Market America since its inception, and his commitment, drive, and determination have only increased from that point. His utter selflessness is seen in his immense desire to help others achieve success. I count myself lucky to be associated with a person of such character and commitment as you, and know that this company, and all of the amazing UnFranchise® owners out there, benefit tremendously from your leadership and passion.

Did you miss the 2011 International Convention? Want to relive the incredible excitement generated at this incredible event? Check out what these attendees have to say about how Convention has affected their businesses and their lives:
I experienced my magic moment when I was sitting in the audience, watching JR run so hard on the hamster wheel. I looked around at the audience and there was a big group all in pinks shirts in the stands. They were riveted.
I thought to myself, “here’s this guy running to the point of vomiting to make a point of how lazy we can get with ourselves and our futures. Then here’s this group of vivacious and thirsty people that have this huge language and cultural barrier. Those issues don’t matter to them. They’re all in pink t-shirts and they all get it. Even though they don’t understand all the words, they get it. When I see this group in Miami, I’m going have to move over an entire section because they will have doubled or tripled in size, by sheer faith and trust in their leaders and Market America!”
I realized that all I had to do is go home, redo my Goal Statement, plaster it all over my life and move forward. I just have to get up and MOVE! Read More
The bottled water boom of the 90s is now, some 20 years later, past its peak. Increasingly, people are becoming aware that all of those plastic bottles do not just magically appear, and more importantly, do not just magically disappear either. In addition, numerous studies and consumer reports tell us that as much as 25 percent of those bottles contain essentially the same water as we might get from the tap at around 1/2oth of the cost.
As far as what does come out of the tap, the EPA has recently decided to turn things up a notch in that area as well, by including not only substances known to pose health hazards to Americans directly, but also substances that are believed to work as precursors to potential health concerns–in other words, the causes behind the causes.
