I am feeling so motivated and inspired that I have to share my Shop.Com International Convention experience with you. Who knew you could get paid to shop?
Looking at the picture above, you can see that this is a tremendously popular convention. Now I know why. When you leave after spending a day here, the belief that you can accomplish anything in life will be firmly in place. You will feel like there is no mountain too big to climb, no job too big to finish, and that the sky is the limit if you believe in yourself.
After listening for a few minutes to Loren Ridinger, the Senior Vice President of marketamerica.com and Shop.Com speak, I was already beginning to feel like this was going to be an incredible day. She was a very powerful and motivated speaker who brought the crowd with her on her journey of building their business and said that anyone could be extraordinary. She told a fascinating story about how the business started and explained why people should "never quit" when going after their goals. She focused on how people should believe in themselves, first and foremost. She went on to say that if you possess a strong belief in yourself, the sky is truly the limit. She added that we should surround ourselves with people who believe in us to help guarantee our journey.
Next, we walked the concourse. We were able to sample some of the products available online as well as see the fundraising efforts for charity.
I enjoyed getting an opportunity to sign the Driving Hope Car that was in front of the Coliseum to help raise money and awareness for breast cancer.
The last speaker of the day was JR Ridinger, the president and CEO of Market America and Shop.com. He was a huge crowd favorite, and after listening to him speak, I know why. He takes you on the journey through motivational and empowering stories that make you laugh and feel that you can truly accomplish anything that you put your mind to if you have the desire. By the time JR is finished speaking, you will have the mindset and the tools you need to succeed in business and life. I would like to close my journey through the Shop.Com International Convention with these words to you. If you feel like you would like to make a change in your life, whether it be changing your career or not, this convention is a must-see, and if you are able ever to make it to one, you will understand what I mean. After attending this event, I feel that I will be a better writer going forward because I have a renewed sense of belief in myself.
