The very first 10 year Member on the Whitlock Avenue Team is… Kriston Sellier! Ten years, when you joined, where was your business? I was in my basement. Where is your business compared to 10 years ago? We’re in Marietta Square.

Jim Hilber Qualifies Gold Star

Gold Star is the icon given to Members who have invited 5 people who joined. Jim, what do you see that makes you think, “I think I’ll invite them.” When I’m out in the field, just doing what we do every day, I’m looking for people who are ready to share their capabilities and get involved. You…

Scott Levine Adds 5 Year Pin

In my mind, when you joined, Scott, you were at the very beginning stages of your own business.  That’s correct. When you first came to the table, what was your fear? I couldn’t produce enough referrals. What was your hope? That I’d build a run a successful business, and help other people on the way. What has happened that was better…

Amy Terry Has A 5 year Pin

Amy, you weren’t really a Member during CoreGroup, but you attended a lot of those meetings because you were subbing for someone from your office. The minute you got a chance, you joined this Team, so it feels like you’re one of the original Members. You have options, right? You could have said, “No, I’ll let…

Ryan Williams Adds a Gold Star

The Peachtree City Team cheered congratulations to Carol Jensen-Linton as she added a 15 year pin to a brimming badge. Let’s start with math: 15 years, 50 weeks a year, that means 750 meetings at 7am- plus leadership responsibilities. I asked Carol if she’s gotten any value from this. A solid third of my business comes…

John Fortener Has a Gold Star

A Gold Star on a Member’s badge means they have invited 5 people who joined a PowerCore Team. My suspicion is that it took more than 5 invitations – so I asked John what he says when he invites someone to a 7:00 AM meeting “Well, usually I’ve noticed some characteristic in them that they’re…

Howard Silvermintz Joins the 20 Year Club

When the Candler Park Team celebrated Howard’s 20 Year Pin – yowza that is an achievement – I asked what had kept him engaged that long, and he said “The relationships, obviously.” I know Howard well enough to push back, so I said – what? not the money? Obviously, it’s the referrals.  You’ve always got to think…

Trent Phillips Earns His 15 Year Pin

Don’t you want to know what has kept Trent attending a Tuesday morning meeting for 15 years? That’s 750 seven AM meetings. I asked.
