Mark Weiss Qualifies Shooting Star

The Shooting Star Pin and Trophy are awarded to Members who’ve invited 25 people who join PowerCore. That is a stand-on-your-chair-and-yell-YOWZA accomplishment, and Mark Weiss has earned it.

Ben Clark Has Been a Marietta Square Leader for 10 Years

Ben Clark answered two questions when he got his 10 year pin. First, why have you stayed on the Team this long? “After a couple of years I was getting so many referrals I was afraid to quit and I’m still scared. I love this Team, they are very important to my business. I like…

Why did you come to your very first meeting, I asked Jason Conn.  “Because John Bennett invited me.” Why did you say yes? “It seemed valuable to me.” When you came what did you think? “It was an enjoyable cult.” {insert raucous laughter from the whole Team} “The first thing I thought was that I knew…
