“The time, the sweat, the devotion, IT PAYS OFF”
Explosive was what the 30th day weigh-in of the “P4 LOSE TO WIN 90 DAYS CHALLENGE” was called by most of the 151 attendees present, while others tagged it as awesome ,wonderful and tempting. They were right because that was what the event depicted, and also based on the fact that some of the attendees wished that they were participants in the “P4 LOSE TO WIN 90 DAYS CHALLENGE” as they witnessed the magnanimity of EDMARK. The anticipated event kick started at about 11:15am with an opening prayer led by a Christian and a Muslim brother, followed by the P4 dance energizer led by the marketing Eagles and the P4 contestants which had all present dancing excitedly, energetically and enthusiastically to the rhythm. An Emerald manager, Mrs. Divine Markus gave the welcome remarks. She inspired everyone present by attesting to the fact that she was once a P4 candidate and highlighted the immense benefits she has received. She epitomized herself as a miracle of the Edmark P4 products as she has three grown up kids, yet looking like one without kids. She wrapped up by encouraging all present; making them know that determination plays a vital role.
An AVP was played showing the activities the contestants were engaged in as well as the quest to becoming a winner. The contestants were excited as they saw what they have been doing in the past 30 days; others present were not left out as they partook in the laughter and merry making. A special message was delivered by Mrs. Roseline Ochekwu, a Sapphire manager who elaborated on the dire consequences obesity can cause if not checked. She laid emphasis on the fact that obesity predisposes one to numerous ailments, clogging of arteries and in due time death. She admonished all to eat right as the more they consume acidic foods, there would be an influx of free radicals which would cause more harm than good; this astounded everyone seated. More astonishment was portrayed by all as the obesity video was played showing how obesity has been eating up the world and still is, the significant rise in figures regarding obese people, the health implications; sudden death due to artery constriction, diseases and so on. This caused all to sit tight, with exclamations like oh! So we have been dying in silence and we have been oblivious all along.
All were brought out of oblivion by a marketing Eagle, Mr. Dominic Emli, he made them to know that there is a solution to obesity by highlighting how their predecessors were able to overcome obesity by consuming the Edmark miraculous P4 products, which made them miracles of Edmark products. He went further to buttress the benefits associated to losing excess weight; self-confidence, self-esteem, being attractive, a boost in Edmark business and helping humanity as well. Mr. Vincent Onwuka commanded all attention as he spoke on the mechanics of the contest which entails the duration of the contest, the criteria for entry into the contest, the prizes awarded on the 30th, 60th, and 90th day weigh-in based on the percentage of weight lost. The mention of the mouth-watering prizes got all edgy as they were all wishing to be among the top three winners.
The production number done by the marketing Eagles and contestants compounded the exciting atmosphere as all partook not wanting to be left out. Still recovering from the ecstasy, the contestants had to adjust themselves as the much awaited moment, the first official weigh-in, was set. This particular period had the contestants’ heart in their mouths for they were contemplating who would win something and who would not. A brief interview was carried out on each contestant after whom they were weighed and the determined ones were awarded for their effort while others were encouraged. No word could be used to describe this particular moment. Announcements of the 60th day weigh-in and next day event were preceded by the awarding of tokens.
The superb event came to an end at about 2:00pm with the closing prayer by a Christian and Muslim brother and finally the Edmark dance.

WORKING SMART CREATES MAGICAL LUCK
BY: FRIDAY O. FELIX
“Working smart is designed to take you from dreams that fallto an effective action plan that propels you towards meaningful goals.”
It was a glorious day as EDMARK KANO held its 8TH WORKING SMART SEMINAR AND TRUTH ABOUT BINARIES; an eye opener event that began with registration of attendees, opening prayers and lovely dance energizers led by the Marketing Eagles and other top leaders. The outstanding host FRIDAY FELIX welcomed all to the event as he recognized all present.
With great enthusiasm, the host introduced T3/SMBINTA A. MOHD who handled Module 1 and 2: “Fundamentals of MLM”& the “Road and Types of Compensation Plan”. She presented MLM as multibillion dollar industry, so if we can get our concepts right, imagine how much we can earn by tapping annually in this industry. To understand MLM we must first understand Pyramid. She therefore called on all distributors who are pyramid minded to rethink before they collapse like house of cards. She said real network rewards you for your ability to sell and not to buy. Edmark is a combination of stair steps, breakaway and matrix without spillover. The objective of compensation plan is to give you TRUE residual income. She concluded with these words “The whole world cannot be Edmarkers but can always use Edmark products”.
Next on stage was vibrant T3/RM SUNDAY OGBODO who kept the ship afloat with Module 3 and 4. He said that at Edmark there are 3 income earners; The Average income earners, average high income earners and rare highest income earners. So the question now is “Where are you in this category?”. He said majority of people are average income earners because of BAD knowledge gotten from bad pyramid companies. He highlighted reasons why networkers fail ranging from lottery mentality, quest for position, Kung Fu Masters and bad education on the business. A legitimate and pure MLM means your bonuses will always depend on the number of sales turnover in your network regardless of your position. As an Edmarker you must know your position, bonus entitlement and how to maximize it. Once you know who you are then you MUST stop blaming. How much you want to earn depends on how much efforts you put in and most importantly work smart. He departed the stage with these words “Always strengthen your network before going for promotion ”.
Lunch break was observed and announcements of big events rolled out by the host. The event took another dimension when T3/RM SAFIYA M. ABDULLAHI melted out justice to TRUTH ABOUT BINARIES. She said binaries involve2 sides and each node must also have only 2 sides. Since you need to sponsor ONLY 2 people, you will get spillover as the people above you sponsor your downlines. In binaries, distributors must balance both legs to get paid. They will tell you so many things to get you on their boat. It’s simple to start and easy to understand, pay up to unlimited depth while the opposite is the case. Binary pays you on your weaker leg and keeps the stronger leg and you need to balance and match weekly. The professionals in binary will hide many things from you like you don’t need to work; that you need to work from your downlines. In binary depth don’t counts but balance; it doesn’t benefits heavy retail sellers unlike Edmark compensation plan. She advised the attendees to know the difference.
There were testimonies from the attendees and the awarding of Certificate of Appreciation was done by BOI ERIC LANZAR to the trainers, courtesy Edmark International. It was indeed a huge and great success as the event came to a colorful end with closing prayers and the Edmark city song. FEEL GOOD NOW!!!
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
Today knowledge has power, it controls access to opportunities and advancement. It is beyond a doubt that all our knowledge begins with experience.
Edmark Kano held a new batch of Speakers Training Program (STP) batch 8,“Unbeatable Team”, who devoted themselves for 12 days training, starting from 20th April, 2015 to 6th May, 2015. The training kicked off with an appreciable number of managers and above with intention of becoming outstanding speakers. The trainers dedicated their time on interview of trainees, introduction and the fundamentals of STP, stressing the facts and needs why every STP should learn the fundamentals.
The trainers started with the presentation of the modules explaining extensively what message is needed to be passed across to the guests, emphasizing the need that it’s a great power of convincing them why they should become edmarkers. On the third day,the trainees started with the modeling of the modules. At the first stage, the trainers scrutinized and did lot of corrections and exposed them the basic features that are needed for an effective communication.It was stated that there is no communication unless the message passed across is well understood, and as well stressing the need to use the edutainment principles in presenting their modules. Representation and remodeling of the modules lasted until the end of the fourth day. At the end of this day, accuracy was bit achieved due to the eagerness of the trainees.
On the fifth day, the trainers(T4 Umma S. Bello, T3 AbdulrahmanIsyaku, T3 Uju Veronica and T3 Solomon Kanchock) presented the BPP & SSM after which it was modeled by the trainees. On this note, the trainers evaluated them, which will serve as a basis to cross over to the mastery level. The mastery stage dealt mainly with HLS, COE, SSM & BPP, giving them a deeper understanding about all they needed to know, encouraging them to carry out research personally rather than depending on the handouts and the modules in the computer.
The STP batch 8 ended successfully having 5 qualified speakers with the mini graduation which served as an ending of the training.
