Top Associate Sponsor – Jackie Aguilar
Long-term residual earnings are what make network marketing so attractive.

Top Mentor Bonus Achiever – Angel Lopez
One major key to building a sustainable business is the willingness to coach others to follow a duplicable success plan.

The winner of this category earned more in personally sponsored Mentor Bonuses than any other Associate between August 2015 and July 2016.
