A Force for Good in 2019
We are so fortunate to have partnered with each of you as we close out a banner year with ASEA in 2019. This year has been particularly interesting when you consider the year we had in 2018, when we grew by 53%. That year was historic on every front, including sales, enrollments, and rank advancements. In 2019, we built on that momentum and anticipate growing sales by an additional 33% by year end. This type of growth for two consecutive years is a phenomenal achievement, and it was possible because of you.
Some of the most exciting things that happened this year were official market openings in Malaysia and the Philippines. While our growth in Asia has been extraordinary, ASEA’s overall growth is not limited to one region of the world. It is thrilling to see tremendous growth in every region of the world where ASEA does business. We also launched new tools, a new app, and a new product, ASEA® VIA™ Omega, at the highest-attended convention in company history.
Making Events Regional
With growth comes exciting changes and enhancements to our incentive trips as we’ve regionalized next year’s Ascent and Diamond Summit. These events are critical in helping to build the ASEA culture that we all value so highly. We were also pleased to announce the ASEA Legacy Experience in Bora Bora in 2020.
The Advancing Life Foundation continued its mission to break cycles of poverty, suffering, and abuse. We conducted two successful expeditions to Ecuador and welcomed the first class of students at the Inta-Kara Advancing Life Center. We also announced two upcoming expeditions to Cambodia set for early 2020.
Pacing with Growth
As ASEA continues to grow, we are increasingly able to invest in areas that support your business-building efforts. In 2019, we added more distribution centers globally and significantly upgraded our manufacturing capacity.
A Force for Good
All of these improvements, changes, and growth have been a function of one thing: people. This kind of progress doesn’t just happen. It is a direct reflection of your commitment to share our products, opportunity, and culture. We are fortunate to have a very dedicated employee base that comes to work every day to support you in your efforts.
As we look to 2020, ASEA’s 10th anniversary year, we have every expectation that we will experience yet another historic year. We look forward to celebrating our successes with you at the ASEA 2020 Global Convention in Anaheim, California, and throughout the year as we continue to be a force for good in the world.
