JR Ridinger’s focus was centered more around the business aspect of the presentation, such as new incentives, technology and products, including branded everyday essentials such as all-natural whitening toothpaste and razors. He also touched on the beginnings of his and his wife’s entrepreneurial adventure in the early 90s, with Market America|SHOP.COM’s inception in Greensboro, whilst delivering empowering messages to the audience, encouraging them to continue driving forward and making their dreams into reality. Loren, wearing a selection of BALMAIN and custom-designed Michael Costello dresses, discussed her line of Motives Cosmetics and got the crowd riled up with her fiery, motivational speeches and the intimate details she shared about her life, which took the crowd on an emotional journey. “You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to start to be great,” and, “Not all storms come to disrupt your life. Some of them come to clear a path,” were some of her words of wisdom among many others.
