On October 12, 2016, we hosted a 25th year business celebration party at our new home, marking a huge milestone. I was only 21 when we started in December of 1991. My daughter Daphne was not even one month old and Sabina was only 2 years old. I was scared and broke. Ed Bestoso, Russ Paley, Nona & Rene Pione, Tom Pisano, Gregory & Sheri Lagana, Jack & Nancy Mellor, Nancy & Al Studer, Tom & Marianne Estabrooks, Marlin Hershey, Ed & Randi Itkowitz and Kelly Regan were there at the very beginning.
We had huge hopes and dreams but I don’t think any of us thought that we were about to launch a marketing revolution! On 10.12.16, we had over 150 of our business partners and friends from all over the USA and Canada in attendance celebrating this event. Even our CEO Frank and his wife Belinda were able to be there.
Sondra and I could tell a special story about everyone in attendance as we have worked together, watched out kids grow up into adults and enjoyed our lives together for the past 25 years. ‘Enhancing Lives’ is our mission statement and this group certainly has done that to hundreds of thousands of people in 18 countries around the world.
Thank you to A Fine Affair Catering, who served delicious food and provided incredible service, and to the Real Deal Band that played our favorite hits all night long. Mike Lepadu took awesome photos which you can see below and if you like you can click on his link and purchase them directly from him.
To my wife Sondra – I love you and love going through life with you. To our CEO and the management team – you have made our company so unique, so special and as our President says “So Noble”—thank you for your resolve, focus, leadership, friendship and care that you have for everyone one of us. To all of our business partners and friends especially those that wanted to be there but could not—thank you for making the past 25 years so amazing. Sondra and I love you all and know that the next 25 years will be even better!
