TO ATTEND YOUR
YTB NATIONAL CONVENTION?

See what these Directors have to say!
(and then sign up TODAY!)
$150 Registration Good Only Through Monday!


EXCITING!
Yes, the Convention has always boosted our business! We make it clear to everyone in our Teams that the National Convention is the most effective way to get to know the company, the people, and build the excitement they need in their own teams. What I have learned in years past is the ones who come to the convention are SERIOUS and will try to keep working their business throughout the next year - they NEVER drop off!!! YTB National Convention is always the EVENT OF THE YEAR!!! See You Around the World!
Carla and Edward Shearn, Future Level 2 Directors!
BELIEF FACTOR!
I have previously attended two National conventions. They were both instrumental in getting my "belief factor" up. Being around so many positive people also motivated me to the Nth degree. Last year there were about 50 from my team present when we were Level I Directors. We have now been promoted to Level 2 and I believe we have over 250 from our team registered for the convention! Now it's time to get their "belief factor" to where mine is, and then LOOK OUT!!!
Director Jess Medina Jr.





BEST HOME BASED BUSINESS!
In all honesty the best parts of the convention are when we hear from our sincere leaders and what they say has depth. Rick Ricketts, Ron and Judy Head, and Juliet St. John always touch our hearts and we walk away with something. Coach and Scott and Kim also always touch our hearts because you can "feel" what they are saying. Of course seeing people awarded for their efforts makes our people want to do the same. We are glad you are bringing Coach,s Corner dinner back. That distinction is an important one.This will be our first year as a Director at the Convention and seeing how the Company honors its Directors is always a plus too. We feel we are in the best home based business there is and are so appreciative every day.
Shawn and Sheila Bruins, California Directors
GREAT AND POWERFUL!
We just cannot wait to be in our National Convention this year - WOW! We are doing our best to put as many members as we can; we would love to take them all! How has the YTB National Convention helped us with our success? Our answer will be simple - we don't have words to really explain how great and powerful it has been and we have not missed one of them since we started with YTB. It really gives you the opportunity to take your business to the next level. Everyone must be there! We just can't wait to see you all!
God Bless you, Directors Emely and Edgar Recart




MUST ATTEND EVENT!
Last year was my first Convention because I came into YTB November, 2006. I was simply blown away at how awesome everything was. I took my key team members with me and they were blown away too! I have even more of my team attending this year's convention and am still working on getting more there. It is a must be at event! Words can't even begin to describe the experience. It takes you to another level. I look forward to this year more than ever! YTB is the greatest company on the PLANET!
Director Bobby O'Neil

THE JET SET CRUISE - JUNE 30, 2008

 

Coach traveled with Directors James and Marcia Prewitt's Jet Set team on a Western Caribbean cruise on the Carnival ship Fascination that will be remembered by all! RTA Suzanne Martine sends us these photos from an event that offered everything - including friendship, fellowship, networking, and just plain fun!

She writes that the cruise included a "White Night” where everyone dressed in white, with Directors TV Wilson and Roland Athouris the hit of the evening! The next day featured a session with Coach Tomer and TV and Roland presented Coach with their designer attire! Also included that day was a session with the Pastors. Suzanne says, "It was the most powerful session I've ever been in with YTB! God has his hand on this company and great things are going to happen! I'm blessed to be a part of YTB!”

Enjoy the photos!

PASSPORT TO GIVING TRAININGS

 

Passport to Giving Trainings
With so much new material now presented in the Passport to Giving program, we encourage any RTA previously certified under the Association Program (now known as the Passport to Giving Program) to take a refresher class at any live location free of charge. (This refresher class is not a requirement to remain certified.)

Many non-profits today are looking for a new way to fundraise and we have the answer! Forget the candy or bake sales and clunker car programs; travel is the ultimate fundraiser! Our innovative program provides non-profit organizations a dramatically different way to raise funds for their organization.

By enrolling a non-profit in this unique program, the organization is provide a "private label" YTB travel website customized with their organization name and log. The website is then promoted to the organizations' supporters and members to use when booking their personal or business travel. (We can also assist the organization in organizing group travel events for their supporters). As supporters use the organization's travel website, the organization receives 60% of the travel commissions earned by YTB, paid as royalties.
 

The RTA who sponsors the non-profit receives a 10% override of the travel commissions generated by the non-profit and a $300 signing bonus (60% of the sign-up fee)!

Passport To Giving can raise thousands of dollars per year for an organization because they have a large number of supporters that will generate travel bookings! Examples of appropriate organizations include service, fraternal, health, alumni, political, environ-mental, charity, religious (including churches), and educational organizations.

There are 1.5 million non-profits in the U.S. that need our program! If you want to help non-profits and create a consistent stream of income for your YTB business, come join us in the Passport To Giving Program!
