Avisae’s Grand Opening Event had it all: laughter, tears, standing ovations, singing, dancing, selfies and cheers! It was clear that meaningful change was taking place in the hearts and minds of all who were in attendance.
The energy was palpable as Randy and Valorie Haugen took the stage to a capacity crowd of thirsty, hopeful entrepreneurs. They spoke from a position of experience that hasn’t always been as smooth and simple as one might see from the outside. “Crushing the fear” was a regular theme that helped forge much of their early successes. One of the keys was having mastered the art of “going and doing” even under great personal duress and initial bouts of fear. “I was afraid they’d see how afraid I was,” Randy said. Imagine if he had let that fear suspend his efforts. Imagine if Randy hadn’t taken that leap and acted upon what he knew would change his life for the better. His continual achievement and growth is a testament that pushing forward, overcoming obstacles and never quitting is profoundly rewarding and well worth embracing challenges and leaving your comfort zone in the dust. “If you’re cruising along without diversity, without problems or complications, then I doubt you or your business is growing.”
From Far and Wide
The Grand Opening brought out a great cross-section of North America. Canadians made their presence felt with others attending from Maine, Ohio, New Hampshire, Minnesota, New York, California, Florida and as far as Salt Lake City! People from all walks of life descended upon a sunny Provo, UT, several at great personal expense. But with all the diversity, there was also a great unity. The messages resonated on every level; business, personal growth and development, understanding, love, struggles and resiliency.
Dry eyes were in short supply as each speaker expounded upon multitudes of stories, experiences and heartfelt messages; each story uniquely compelling and inspiring as the last. The words shared were from the men and women who, much like the bright-eyed attendees there this weekend, had been enriched by similar talks decades earlier. They too were once new to the channel commerce side of business; curious, cautious and nervous, but they now represent those who jumped in and made it their dream to make their business a great success. The students are now the masters.
