Gratitude Post: Coming Up on One Year with Ocean Avenue
Last year when my friend Paige let me know that her parents were pre-launching a network marketing company I jumped at the chance to get in at the beginning. For two reasons - one, I love the Ninow family. They are wonderful, loving people. Two, I knew that they were creating a company that they had dreamed of, that it would be family focused, and that I would learn from people who knew what they were doing when it comes to building a company.
Over the past year I have had the opportunity to talk to many people about the Ocean Avenue Shakes and Products. I have seen lives change. I have spent hours talking to Fred and Staci about their vision for the company. I have seen my family's health improve through using the products.
Ocean Avenue Officially Launches with a Family Focused Convention
Over the weekend, Ocean Avenue officially launched with a family focused convention in Orlando. Staci Ninow posted on Facebook about it:
"I almost never post things, but after the Launch of our company in Orlando I just had to say how grateful I am to all the amazing ambassador that have joined us at Ocean Avenue.
When we started the company we wanted "Family" to be our focus. When the kids were up on the stage ranging 6 months to 17, everyone's vision became a reality.
Kamyrinn one of our teens spoke (to over 500 people in the crowd) and told about her experience at convention and how it had inspired her. Then Destiny played her guitar and sang for the first time in front of a crowd. She was awesome. Those two teens touched my heart. I looked around and saw I wasn't the only one this affected so deeply.
I want to thank our amazing leaders from USA, Canada, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Singapore for their awesome words that inspired and motivated everyone that attended. I love you all!
Thank you to our OA staff family who stayed home to man the office and those who went to Florida they never stopped working: Paula, Nick, Rad, Kass, Paige, Chris, Jake, Robyn, Travis, Aaron, Aubree, Ryan D, Derek, Ryan N, Paul, Kaci and Shawn we couldn't have done it without each one of you! Plus the friends that came along to help with the children at the convention, thank you.
Remember to "Leave it better than you found it," Lets make a difference in the world!
Love you all! See you on the cruise!:)"
Building a network marketing team is not easy. There is a learning curve. There is a lot of rejection. A great deal of blood, sweat and tears goes into it. Ocean Avenue has been incredible for me over the past year. The Ninows have been a huge support. The training that is in place has taught me so much about building relationships. My team is now in 17 states and two countries and I have loved working with people who come from different cultures and backgrounds. I'm one year in....and so excited to see what the next year brings!
P.S. I qualified for the cruise!
