How to bring MB30 to the young lions and lioness.
Join CEO Aaron Garrity and 200K Tommy Johnson as they teach you the simplicity of MB30. You will leave this workshop with the confidence you need to start, enhance, and rebuild your business to a new level. You will be able to show your organization how to own this viral movement of MB30.
There are several components to owning your business and leading your team to success.
Join Carolyn Johnson as she outlines these components and answers your questions and concerns about creating abundance both spiritually and financially for yourself and those you are responsible for.
Women approach business in a loving and feeling way. Men, on the other hand, are more about making money and the risks involved in a business endeavor. Carolyn likes to look at it from both perspectives: Take the wonderful things of being a woman, but lead with a business opportunity in mind. Her goal is to educate more women on this principle and to help them move out of the poverty mindset to enjoy the abundance they were created for.

About Grace Dyck
Looking for an opportunity to create additional income, while being a stay-at-home mom in the early 90’s, Grace Dyck seized an opportunity with a network marketing organization and proceeded to climb through the ranks to build a large business from her kitchen table. Grace quickly found out that this industry afforded her the opportunity to be at home with her children while creating a life offering limitless time and financial freedom for herself, her family, and the people she loved and cared about. Grace became a student of the network marketing industry and has enjoyed many “firsts” since those early days, like buying her first BMW and traveling the world with family and friends! She was part of the advisory board for her company and enjoyed the personal and entrepreneurial experience she received from doing so.
After taking a short time away from the industry Grace became a business coach. But with her outgoing personality and spirit, Grace soon found that “home” for her is the industry she lives in today...Network Marketing!
Today, her husband Bob, has retired from his previous business and together they are building a massive organization in XANGO! Grace still hosts her weekly “CEO of your Kitchen Table” meetings and calls that are now called “The Boardroom Meetings” to distributors from around North America.
Grace was one of five women that had a vision for creating a program for women and became one of 3 founders for an organization called “Women Building Bridges” that has already had 17 worldwide events in the two years since the program was started.
Grace, and her husband Bob, have three married children and seven grandchildren. They are enjoying a lifestyle that includes time with their families, world travel and lots of golf time together. A gourmet cook, they love to entertain their friends, family and their XANGO partners.
Together Bob and Grace are committed to helping others achieve their dreams and goals and find themselves free, as they once did, of the belief that there are no choices in our lives but the ones we have learned to become content with.

In a few short years, Aaron Garrity has become an inspiration to creative entrepreneurs worldwide. His many accomplishments are that much more impressive as they took place during a difficult economic environment.

Under Aaron’s leadership as chairman, president and CEO, XANGO became a story of unprecedented success and innovation in the direct sales industry, setting new standards of excellence for distributor compensation, communications and use of technology.
Within 6 years, XANGO achieved status as a recognized global direct sales and nutrition brand with over a billion dollars in sales and more than one million independent distributors in over 30 international markets.

Ten Years ago Anna Caleca was working as cashier at a store making minimum wage, when her best friend and now Xango Sponsor, 100K Premier Select Janelle Crane, had the guts to challenge Anna on her inability to afford starting her own Xango Business. Anna reasoned that she was a single mother who could not afford her first product order, much less commit to her ADP. Anna proclaimed to her friend, "I just can't afford it." Janelle lovingly, but firmly reminded Anna, "you can't afford not to." That was the day that turned her life around.
