Homeward Bound

Dear friends,

My very brief visit to the Maldives was great. There were 300 Unicity leaders at the resort and when I arrived I saw a sea of orange. All of our people were wearing orange shirts or orange swimming suits or orange hats or even orange flip flops. Unicity was 85% of the guest count at Club Med Kani and it felt good to me to see all that Reviv orange! I am not sure how it felt to the other 15% hopefully they got revived.

We conducted a special Presidential Club training with the 25+ club members who were in attendance and then a skills training for all 300 followed by a Q&A. After a quick bite to eat it was time to catch the speed boat back to the airport. When I arrived in the late morning I took this same boat out to the Club Med island and distinctly remember thinking that I was riding in the equivalent of a Mexico City taxi only on water. It was madhouse with boats careening every which direction. Well, the return trip at night was just the same without the benefit of vision. It was exhilarating to say the least. I was tired and sleepy before I got on the boat but wide awake when I got off 45 minutes later.

I am now in Singapore on the 2nd of my two eight hour layovers in the last 38 hours. (Note to Curt: I am really beginning to see the value of a corporate jet.) All joking aside, I am so pleased to have been able to show my respect for these wonderful leaders who, in many cases, have broken out of poverty and other very difficult circumstances and have chosen to be winners. Their examples will inspire many more to do the same. This is the very definition of leadership: to help others to reach their own potential. Thailand is setting the pace in leadership!

All the best,

En Route to the Maldives

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

No we are NOT opening the United Arab Emirates for Unicity; I am just passing through on my way from New York City to the Maldives. As I mentioned in the last blog post we are hosting the winners of our Thailand spring contest there this week and I get to stop in for about 12 hours. It seems a shame to spend 28 hours flying to the location and 32 hours flying back only to spend 12 hours there but it is worth it. The great effort these leaders have made over these past four months is truly noteworthy and I want to acknowledge it personally. They posted a new record in volume and we have several new President's Club members to recognize. It will be great to show them how much we appreciate their success!

Dubai is an interesting place. I have had a chance to look around a bit since I have an eight hour layover. The mix between modern and very rich with the very traditional Arab culture is fascinating. The people are very friendly although immigration did confiscate my trusty tape measure. I never did get an answer as to why they thought it was dangerous but I have learned to never argue much with people who carry guns. In a few hours I will leave and yet I look forward to returning when I have more time to explore.

A great book I am reminded of when I consider where I am right now is Dr. Seuss’ “Oh the Places You'll Go!” Read that book—it is the story of a life well lived.

All the best,

The third and final link I will provide you with today is to the new Bios Life Slim website. You will love the sharp new look and the easy navigation of this website. I think our design and marketing people have done a great job on all these new tools. I hope you agree.

Here is the link:

When it comes up on your browser simply click on the Slim box and a map of the world will appear. You can choose North America to view the site:

These are exciting times at Unicity! In fact I have never seen more growth in my 18 years in the business. Europe continues to grow at an incredible pace. As usual South East Asia is on fire--in fact I will be in the Maldives later this week with the 300 winners of our reward trip. I might as well share one more link. This is the location of where we will be staying Click Here * Warning don't look at this link unless you are prepared to be inspired or jealous.

We will be doing our beta launch of Bios Life Slim in Japan in June and Korea in July. At the Global Convention in September we will make it official for most markets. This product does change lives in the most remarkably positive ways. You need to use it and you need to make it a part of your business development. If you do you just might find that going to the Maldives and other really cool places become a part of your new lifestyle. Click here for Global Convention: Global Convention

All the best,
