2007 MLB Academy Korea

Make Life Better Academy
Vivaldi Park, Korea

We just finished a great three day leadership training here in Korea. 700 leaders gathered at this beautiful ski resort and listened to top leaders teach great concepts. The Bios Life Franchise was launched and USA Presidential Diamond Rick Jordan taught the principles he has used to become one of the top leaders in Unicity International worldwide. Topics such as the importance of consistent daily action. We also had some great fun skiing and enjoying the hot springs and spa.

The key theme of this year’s MLB Academy was preparing for, and building towards, the global convention to be held in September 2008 in Pusan, Korea. They are looking at the global convention as the most important launching pad for their businesses they may ever have. The Korean leaders know the power of events in our business. When you attend events you build your belief in the business, the products and yourself. The bigger the event the more power it has to launch your business. The key, of course, is the leverage you get from having as many people as possible attend with you. The cumulative increase in belief drives your business in to the next level.

The leaders also talked about the need for unity and I was impressed with the unity of the different Korean leaders and how they committed themselves to support one another regardless of organization. It is true a rising tide does lift all the boats on the water. As we all work together and treat other people the way we would like to be treated magic happens in our lives and in our businesses.
During this event we made a very significant management change in Korea. Christopher Kim has been our General Manager in Korea for the last three years. He has done a super job building the business there and was recently promoted to Vice President, Asia Pacific. He will provide oversight to Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. I want to express my appreciation once again for the truly outstanding work Christopher has done in building the business in Korea. The leaders have a great love for Christopher and are sad to see him move back to the USA, but they are pleased that he will still be involved in the market as the regional VP. Our new GM in Korea is Bobby Kim. Bobby has spent this last year as a sales manager in Korea and been integral to the continuity of growth that has occurred in the last twelve months. I believe Bobby Kim will be every bit as successful as Christopher, yet he will do things in his own way.

I am grateful to be associated with so many outstanding individuals. In fact, who we spend our time with plays such a powerful role in what we become. Choose your friends and associates wisely.

All the best,
Stewart
