Awards and Recognition

Valerie Brutti Achieves the Shooting Star Trophy

Valerie earned the Shooting Star Trophy because she invited 25 people who joined PowerCore! I asked why.  “I believe I can create win-win situations by sparking energy. New people bring new energy. Constant new people coming in is what creates sparks; without new the fire dies  – everyone sits in the same place and talks to…

Dru, it’s your day. You joined this Team five years ago. In that time you’ve held all five Officer Positions, and for that you’re getting a Hand Pin.

When one Member has held all five leadership roles they add a Hand Pin to their badge, and I ask: of the five Officer positions — and John has  been MentorCoOrdinator four times! — which is your favorite?

Steve Goins Is In The 5 Year Club

I asked Steve to share the best thing he’s gotten out of a 7 AM meeting, every week, for five years.

I’m not going to get as many, and they are a higher-dollar transaction and relationship. That’s…
