May was another record month, and June looks like it will reflect a substantial increase over May, so thank you to everyone and congratulations for all your excellent leadership.
I want to repeat my reminder from the call and encourage all of you to get registered for the Leadership Summit in September. It will be held in Park City September 15-17, and … really big things will be happening there! I’m not allowed to talk about it, but I can tell you there will be a number of exciting announcements made, that some will be real ‘game changers,’ and of course there will be our North America recognition ceremonies.
I’m still getting emails from the North America Make Life Better Reward Trip attendees saying it was the greatest, most energizing experience ever. I hope all of you are working toward the next one – the Make Life Better Rewards Trip to Sundance, Utah September 12-15, just before the Leadership Summit. It will give you a couple of days to rest up before the excitement of the Summit demands all your energy. Details can be found in Franchise Office.
Canada is still hitting them out of the ballpark – we all know that the Unicity products validate the opportunity, and apparently you Canadians have really taken that to heart recently. We’re seeing a really solid growth rate up there, and it looks like it will not be slowing down anytime soon.
We had a fantastic Matcha event in Europe, with hundreds of attendees in Wiesbaden, Germany joining the European team to kick off the product and celebrate Unicity’s new Presidents Club Diamond – Markus Beier. What an exciting time that was – thanks to all of you who joined us over there.
In other parts of the world, Sweden was up 42% in May over April, driving the numbers up with Slim; Turkey has had double-digit growth month over month for the last three consecutive months, and Japan has managed to maintain their sales numbers for the last few months despite all the disasters the country has experienced recently. A group from Japan came to the U.S. in June for their “make-up” Make Life Better Rewards Trip, spending time in San Francisco and then here in Utah. (Remember, we’re still accepting and matching donations at www.MakeLifeBetter.org – all funds go to the Red Cross for Japan’s recovery efforts.)
Hong Kong is still growing and expanding, in fact, we’re looking at new, larger offices over there right now. Taiwan is up 400 percent in recruiting and 11 percent in sales, and we’ve just reinforced our support structure in place there to help. We’re expecting huge growth in HK in the next couple of years. Thailand is up 28 percent, and has had a boom in rank advancements … 2 new Presidential Rubies, one new Sapphire, one new Director, and the list goes on. Korea just had their convention, with attendance topping 3,000 people. Congratulations to Mr. Park from Korea, Unicity’s newest Triple Diamond and Chairman’s Club member (the first one from Korea!) who had such momentum going he bypassed Double Diamond! Congratulations also to Mrs. Lee from Korea, our newest Double Diamond and Chairman’s Club member.
Singapore/Malaysia is showing record performances so far this year, with 17-18 percent month over month growth for 4 consecutive months – way to go! They are working very hard there to build the Unicity culture and systems, get trained, and grow the business.
Let’s talk about India for a minute … opening up that country has been a really interesting and positive experience. It’s a huge and complex country, culture, and (potentially) market. The economy is just exploding over there, and so many people have been working so hard to make this all happen. It’s a market we intend to continue to approach wisely, carefully, and methodically. So far, that strategy appears to be working, as India was up 350 percent month over month.
Finally, I discussed events, and how they can be used by you to drive your business. As a new Unicity partner I learned quickly that events are a wonderful way to learn about the company, products, and opportunities, and also to do some really effective teambuilding. We here at Unicity excel at putting on spectacular events – you owe it to yourselves and your organization to participate and bring your downline with you! Alone you will learn a lot; with your team by your side you will learn a lot and you will all walk away excited, motivated, and energized. This is an event-centric business; make your team part of that excitement.
Remember, registration for the North American Leadership Summit in Park City, Utah is already approaching sold-out status, as our venue has limited space. Make sure you register before that happens! Go … I promise you will NOT regret it. To register, just click here.
