ON March 18 and 19, 2011 I Took My Top 5 Distributors On An All Expense Paid Trip To Las Vegas. These 5 Distributors Accounted For Over $928,000 Of Income To Safety Technology In A One Year Period. I'm Very Grateful To Them.

You can see pictures of the trip at www.flickr.com/photos/safetytech. Do you want to be on the next trip? I'm not sure where it will be yet, but I will post the information here as soon as I decide.
Below are some comments from the distributors who went to Las Vegas with Nancy and me and some quick videos of moments during the Las Vegas trip.
"Dianne and I appreciate the amazing event you put on for us in Las Vegas. I am not sure what we enjoyed more, the suite at the Palazzo or all the tasty wining and dinning. In addition to the top notch accommodations and eats, I feel fortunate to have been a part of the business building sessions you conducted for us. I learned a lot of additional techniques that will greatly assist Velocity Products Inc and our site The Home Security Superstore.
I feel fortunate to have been given the opportunity to spend a weekend with all of you. I sure learned a lot and enjoyed the Fraternity that developed between us. Dianne is already pushing me to sell more so that I can reserve my spot next year. Thanks again Mike!"David Artman, Velocity Products
"Our trip last weekend in Las Vegas was fantastic! From the large and spacious room to the elegant dinners, we were treated as almost royalty. Of course it's impossible not to have a good time in Vegas, but Mike and Nancy made extra sure we enjoyed ourselves immensely.
There was so much to see and do. We watched the fountain display at the Bellagio, had dinner in a private room at the Mon Ami Gabi, and even went to take pictures at the famous Las Vegas sign you see on TV everywhere. All in one night! And of course, the chauffeured limo tooling us around made it even more top notch.
The next day spent with Tom Rich was my highlight as he wooed all of us with his inside baseball knowledge of marketing on the internet. We also learned something specific about our individual websites that will help increase sales even more. Setting up a robust email marketing program was my main take away as well as presentation of on-page factors. I really look forward to working with Tom and Mike in the future.
Something I've known about Mike for the past 11 years came shining through once again: He cares more about the success of us distributors than anything else. Of course the all expense paid trip was completely first class and very appreciated but that seemed very secondary to his real goal of showing us how to make more sales. Bringing along an internet marketing expert for us to pick his brain and ask question showed that what he really cares about is our individual prosperity.
I appreciate Mike's ethics and absolutely plan on earning my way into the Top 5 again for next year's trip. Thank you Mike and Nancy!"Steve Thibeault, TBO-Tech
"We wanted to thank you again for the wonderful time we had in Vegas. Not only did we stay at one of the most luxurious hotels in the country, dine at some very nice restaurants and enjoy great company, but the trip was very informative as well. The discussions we had with the other distributors, Tom Rich and yourself on various marketing strategies, SEO, etc. were extremely productive.
It was amazing how everyone opened up and shared what works for them, especially being we are all competitors. Of course we had a common bond, being we are all members of the "Safety Technology family". I brought back a ton of notes and am slowly working my way through them. Of course we brought back a lot of memories that we will treasure for a lifetime as well.
I have to say we work with several distributor/dropshippers, but none are anywhere near as dedicated as you and Nancy in the way of providing the knowledge and the tools needed to succeed, and of course nowhere near as generous. From both Treva and I, thanks again and God Bless You!"Dave Finley, World Net Enterprises
"I was pleasantly surprised to be the number 5 distributor to win the trip to Las Vegas. I didn't think I had a chance to win so it was indeed a pleasant surprise.
The Las Vegas trip was first class all the day; the accommodations, the limo and the restaurants. Mike Gravette made sure that everything was taken care of and that we had a great time.
It was a pleasure meeting and interacting with all the distributors and their spouses. Everyone got along real well and the other distributors were open with sharing information about their businesses.
Mike invited a consultant who gave us feedback on how to increase traffic and improve our websites. The information was invaluable and I plan to implement some of the things I've learned.
The trip to Las Vegas was definitely a motivator to continue growing my business. It definitely proved that, the harder you work, the luckier you become!"Patrick Birmingham, Stunster
