Saturday was filled with 15-minute business development meetings between advisors and supplier partners. These longer meetings allow more time to learn and grow relationships.

Testimonials

Phenomenal Education

“I am so thankful, grateful and honored to be a part of such a fantastic company. I said to a few of you one of the best parts of Academy is getting to see everyone and catch up but what I really want you all to know is how much I appreciate the phenomenal education I received this weekend. I was blown away. Just when you think it can’t get any better….it does!”
