Legacy… what do you want your legacy to be? What do you want to hand down to the generations to come? What do you want to be remembered for?
That was the theme of the Plexus convention this year. Plexus is celebrating 10 years in business and boy did we celebrate.
Six months ago, we were told by the leaders on our team, “if you want to really do this, you need to be at convention. Leaders are born at convention.” I was only 4 months into my Plexus journey and initially only had the goal of getting my products paid for but I had gotten a taste of the community, the honor of helping others in their health journey, the supplemental income, the personal development and I knew I wanted more. So we registered. I am so thankful for this push from our leaders because convention was amazing! It blew me away.
It was such a gift to get time away with my sister. Normally when we’re together we have 5 kids vying for our attention. And getting to meet our team members in person and spend time with them was life-giving. I count these ladies as some of my dearest friends and that was before I even met them in person this week! They are so encouraging, supportive, inspiring, and empowering. We laughed and cried and brainstormed and danced and cheered and shared our hearts with each other. God uses them to fulfill a desire in my heart that I didn’t even realize I had.
The convention started off with someone singing “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman (LOVE this movie!!) and trapeze artists. Plexus knows how to kick things off. When the first notes played I knew we were in for an amazing few days.
The speakers were incredible. Christy Wright spoke on Friday and killed it. John Maxwell spoke on Saturday and he was as great as you would expect. He is obviously a gifted writer but he is even better in person. He was so funny without even trying. I took so many notes that I need to go back and look over and digest.
But my favorite part of convention (besides the time with Audra and my team) was hearing the heart of the leadership of Plexus. When I joined Plexus I did so for the products, I had no idea that I was joining a company whose heart and values and priorities lined up so closely with mine. We heard over and over this week that it is about the people, it is about lives changed, it is about being a blessing and giving back. They put their money where their mouth is by announcing our new partnership with Feeding America and presenting them a check for $100,000. The founders talked about being a company that does things right and having integrity. I made me so proud to be there and to represent them.
Another favorite part (is it ok to have several favorite parts? 😊) was getting to hear so many incredible stories. Stories of restoration and redemption. Stories of people that were broken and at the end of their rope and someone shared Plexus with them and their health was restored and they were able to achieve financial freedom. Stories of moms and dads able to stay home with kids. Stories of families that were able to adopt, fund ministries, start non-profits, and so much more. It gives me so much hope for what God is doing with my story. I can’t wait to see what He has in store in the next year, 5 years, 10 years. I am so glad I said yes to this opportunity. If any part of this appeals to you… whether it be the desire to help others live more fully, or the need for supplemental income, or the dream of starting a non-profit, or the need for a tribe or the desire for personal development… whatever it may be (or ALL of it), we would love to chat with you. It seriously is such a blessing to us and this week really affirmed that.
Our theme song for the week was “Leave A Legacy” by Alita Allen, who is from Nashville and is a Plexus ambassador. Please take a few minutes to listen to it… it is so good!
