President & COO of Market America Worldwide, Marc Ashley, introduced a multitude of groundbreaking and relevant products, including VivoQuin™ that, among other key benefits, support the immune system well-being; Bymygra™ for head comfort that promotes healthy cognitive function while helping to maintain normal blood flow to the head and neck; Isotonix® Sexual Health for men and women that supports a healthy libido and helps maintain normal sexual function; Ultimate Aloe® With AstaReal® Astaxanthin, which among other key benefits supports a strong immune system; TLS® Cookies & Cream Nutrition Shake which is protein-rich, high in calcium and lactose-free; and TLS Thermochrome™ V6, a dietary supplement that supports mental focus, increases energy and supports normal metabolic function.*

“Currently in the United States, 70 percent of adults are overweight. The global weight loss market was over $20 billion last year and, with people burning both ends of the candle and finding themselves sequestered in their homes and unable to exercise as they have in the past, the average person gained about 30 pounds. The global weight loss market is expected to double in less than four years. There is a clear need for products like TLS Thermochrome V6,” said Ashley. “What I’m most thankful for is each and every one of you who believe in this business. I’m thankful that every single morning, we have a committed team of people. All we focus on is what can we do to make this business better for you? What can we do to come out with the best products in the world that you can share with other people?”

Finally, closing the three-day virtual conference, Market America | SHOP.COM Founder, Chairman & CEO, JR Ridinger closed the three-day virtual conference by providing multiple ways that entrepreneurs around the world can use to earn a supplemental income through the UnFranchise Business and the Shopping Annuity®. “What a modern-day miracle,” Ridinger said, “what a privilege and honor to be able to speak to thousands of people around the world, connected by belief,” continued Ridinger. Of the many examples Ridinger shared, he made it clear that those wanting to reach both their business and life goals already had the ability within themselves to succeed. “When you have a ‘Why’ and a ‘How,’ it’s been proven scientifically that it stimulates parts of the brain to give you epiphanies, to give you energy, to attract the right people into your life. It’s absolutely mind-blowing,” said Ridinger. “If you program your brain with what I have just taught you, you can reach your own goals. It happened to me, an average little nothing kid, no special talents but I just decided to program my brain. That’s the only difference between you and me. I’ve tried to do brain surgery on you today to help you re-program your brain because your success doesn’t depend on the size of your bank account, your education or your training or your status or your connections or your experience or your IQ. It comes down to desire and belief and saying yes, yes, yes I will do it. Yes, I will do it. It’s up to you. I hope you choose wisely.”
