The countdown is on. There are just over 600 days left to claim a piece of Vi Equity before your window of opportunity shuts. That means it’s time to run and run fast to National Director or higher so you can secure a lasting legacy for your family and your future.
“What equity means to me is ‘contribution’ and the ability to give. It’s not just wealth, but the ability to create great change… we don’t just want to create individual wealth; we want to create societal wealth,” said Co-Founder and CEO Ryan Blair at National Success Training (NST) in Ft. Lauderdale in April 2015.
The Founder’s Equity Incentive Plan launched earlier to create a unique opportunity for Promoters to gain ownership equivalent to 6% of the company, awarded over two years (3% allocated in 2015 and 3% allocated in 2016). The plan is shared among four equity groups based on paid rank each month including National and Presidential Directors; 2-Star Ambassadors; 3-Star, 4-Star and 5-Star Ambassadors and Diamond and Global Ambassadors.
Here are three things you can do starting today to build momentum as you journey down the road to equity.
Listen to leadership, take notes and guide your team to success.
Many of Vi’s Millionaires have echoed this sentiment time and again. Global Ambassador Ashley Sarnicola attested at NST the reason she was up on stage was because of leadership and mentorship. It was the leadership at ViSalus that not only fueled Ashley’s entrepreneurial vision, but also put her on a direct path to success by teaching her how to listen to her team and help them achieve their own goals. This is what has made Ashley one of the most powerful female network marketers in the world.
According to Co-Founder and Chief Sales & Marketing Officer Blake Mallen, “Everything rises and falls on leadership and if I were to adapt that philosophy to this business, that means the size of your team at the end of the day is a reflection of your leadership. The size of your check at the end of the day is a reflection of your leadership.”
The first task of a great leader is to listen to the field, note team members’ goals and support them in achieving those goals. In this business, your team’s success is your success. And ViSalus is brimming with leaders from all walks of life from which to draw inspiration.
Resources like Vi Events & Training (VET) online provide a wealth of multimedia educational content and tools from Vi Millionaires delivered directly to your computer or mobile device. Top producers can join the Founders Leadership Influence Development (LID) Group led by leadership expert John C. Maxwell for added personal development and business training. Whatever your story, your experience or your location, you need only to look to your upline for support.
Give back to your community.
Our business is founded on Life, Health and Prosperity, and revolves around improving others’ lives. Vi’s nutritious meals, drinks, snacks and supplements are designed to help improve overall health when coupled with regular exercise. The best part? For every 10 lbs. lost or built, Vi donates 90 days of meals, drinks or snacks to children in need across the globe through the Project 10™ Kids charitable giving program. We’ve donated nearly half a million meals and counting to children in need. It feels good to give back.
Have fun and make sure your team is enjoying themselves too.
