After all, Morinda now has years and years of success, a greatly expanded catalog of products, and a presence in countries all over the world.</p> <p>But, with the recent <a target="_blank" title="Morinda announces historic merger with New Age Beverage Corporation" href="/en-us/news/6472969/morinda-announces-historic-merger-with-new-age-beverages-corporation">New Age merger</a> and also the promise of <a target="_blank" title="Morinda and New Age Beverages Corporation Chief Executive Officer Brent Willis Delivers Keynote Address at 2019 Leadership Circle Event" href="/en-us/news/6591114/morinda-and-new-age-beverages-corporation-chief-executive-officer-brent-willis-delivers-keynote-address-at-2019-leadership-circle-event">great new products and programs in 2019 and beyond</a>, many IPCs are seeing the sort of untapped potential and cause for excitement that they witnessed in 1996 and thereafter.</p> <p>Various highly successful and influential IPCs at our recent Leadership Circle event shared their thoughts on the early days of Morinda, and the incredible opportunities they see in today's Morinda.

Due to the unprecedented demand for expansion of the program, and in response to the feedback and recommendations of our IPC leaders from around the world, the decision was made to expand the program such that more of our system and valued partners could participate in the financial upside of our great company. </p> <p>Beginning in February, 2019, and extending through June, 2019, we will add a stock incentive of 50 shares at the Jade level. The opportunity to earn double the amount of shares will last through June 30, 2019, which means every Jade-level IPC will be able to qualify to receive up to 100 shares of New Age Beverages stock (NASDAQ: NBEV).</p> <p>"It is our desire to make as many IPCs as possible fellow owners in New Age," said Brent Willis, Chief Executive Officer of New Age Beverages and Morinda. "We want to share the wealth and growth of our company so that ultimately all IPCs become IPCOs (IPC Owners)! We have so much potential in our new company, with new products, new channels, and new financial opportunities for all. I want everyone to have the personal wealth impact as we all work together to build the world's leading healthy beverages and lifestyles company."  </p> <p> </p> <p><strong><i>Program Details</i></strong></p> <p>The incentive for Jades will be subject to the same conditions applicable to the entire program for all IPCs. The incremental growth qualifications, maintenance, and vesting requirements to receive shares of NBEV stock at the Jade level include:</p> <p>First qualification month for Jade must occur by June 30, 2019.</p> <p>First month in February 2019 to June 2019 will receive double shares at the highest first month or quarter qualification level completed by June 30, 2019. </p> <p>Beginning with the first month qualification for Jade the IPC will have six months to complete the four initial qualification months. Upon initial four-month maintenance, months must be consecutive.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Maintenance/Vesting Requirements:</span></p> <p>Upon completion of four-months, Morinda IPCs will receive a certificate of NBEV share eligibility at the highest level achieved (not cumulative). New Age Shares will be reserved for IPCs and subject to a four-month performance vesting schedule with Jade qualifiers required to maintain a minimum of personal paid-as Jade above baseline in months 5-8.</p> <p>Upon completion of the vesting, the IPC will be issued shares of NBEV company stock.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;">New Age share grant conditions:</span></p> <p>1)    Subject to Morinda's legitimate business policy applicable to all Morinda IPCs.</p> <p>2)    Subject to number of available shares allocated by New Age for the incentive. If number of qualifiers exceeds number of allocated shares to the IPC program or total authorized shares, grants may be pro-rated.</p> <p>3)    Subject to local securities and exchange control rules which may restrict the receipt of shares or other consideration by IPCs in certain countries.</p> <p>4)    International IPCs must provide a W8-BEN form (W9 form for US IPCs) to New Age upon receipt of the certificate of share eligibility and establish a brokerage account in order to receive the shares upon vesting.</p> <p>5)    The fair market value of NBEV stock received will be taxable to the IPC. IPCs are responsible for the payment of all applicable income and other taxes and the proper reporting of the income in their local country.</p> <p>6)    New Age reserves discretion under the share incentive plan to provide other forms of remuneration instead of NBEV shares.</p> <p>7)    New Age stock incentive plan is not a permanent part of the Morinda IPC compensation plan and qualification for any eligibility in the plan terminates on December 31, 2019.</p> <p>8)    Morinda IPC participation in the plan is voluntary and subject to all conditions and restrictions associated with the incentive.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong><i>Summary</i></strong></p> <p>The opportunity to participate in the New Age Stock Incentive program represents one of the most substantial wealth creation programs in the history of Morinda. All employees and all IPCs leaders worldwide, and now all IPCs at the Jade level can be fellow owners of New Age. </p> <p>Why are we doing it, especially when no other direct-to-consumer company in the world does it? Simple: because when we say we are committed to the wealth creation of everyone that touches our company, we mean it.</p> <p>Being a fellow owner also comes with a certain responsibility. New Age Beverages is the fastest-growing beverage company in the world, and is also the fastest-growing stock in the world, with more than 3,000% growth over the past two years. It doesn't happen by accident, but it does happen when everyone in the company is committed to and aligned to the same purpose, and everyone does what they have to do individually, so we can all share in our collective success.  </p> <p>Being part of New Age, is being part of something different, something special, something extraordinary. It is being part of the dream to make a difference for the planet with healthy alternatives, to be an inspiration for the world to "Live Healthy," and to share in the wealth that achievement of our vision represents for all.  </p> <p>Congratulations on becoming a fellow shareowner.</p> <p> </p> <p>Brent David Willis</p> <p>Chief Executive Officer</p> <br />]]></description> </item> <item> <title><![CDATA[We’re bringing back TeMana challenges in a big way!]]></title> <link>https://morinda.com/en-us/news/6616005/We’re bringing back TeMana challenges in a big way!</link> <pubDate>Fri, 08 Feb 2019 10:53:09 -0700</pubDate> <media:thumbnail url="https://morinda.com/filestores/8F/8F4sMQROhPqZuIIgQCmP/temana_sample_blog_th.png" width="140" height="90" ></media:thumbnail> <guid>https://morinda.com/en-us/news/6616005/We’re bringing back TeMana challenges in a big way!</guid> <description><![CDATA[<p><i>Did you love - or miss out on - our Jackie Lee challenge?

In the end, all left Morinda's Leadership Circle event in Maui feeling excited about the future and determined to continue to achieve new things.</p> <p>The following are reactions that Japanese IPCs had to the event:</p> <p><strong>Noriko Sakata:</strong> Before I went to Maui, I honestly felt that we no longer do business with Morinda like we used to. I thought that in the worst case, Morinda might no longer exist after the merger. So, I was hesitant to sponsor new people into this business in December. But, I overcame all these concerns while participating in the Leadership Circle event. As I listened to Brent, I felt supported by him. I also saw he spent time with IPC leaders during the event. I felt his sincerity for our business. As soon as I returned from the airport, I went directly to my group member meetings. There are so many great things I shared with them, and will continue to share. I will focus on the $75 bonus and sponsoring system. Our goal is to make our products free. I started visiting those who stopped using autoship program. I have not rested after coming back from Maui, but I am enjoying it and do not feeling tired. It is great!</p> <p><strong>Chie Takashima:</strong> I felt the importance of speed in regard to the New Age and Morinda business after listening to Brent. I too must speed up my business. Things like Brent's appearance on Fox Business, the $75 bonus to make our products free, and others are all encouraging us to speed up our business. I already talked to my group members about the TeMana Noni + Collagen 30-day challenge pack system. We will start with the list-building process and make priority lists with my group members. To speed up and keep the speed, I feel we need to focus. This means we need to give up something that slows us down. Duplication must be focused on three people only. This way, we go faster. I have to lead them by example, so I will sponsor a new PM with the sponsoring system.</p> <p><strong>Kentaro Murakami:</strong> A New Age has begun! Morinda literally became a different company while merging with New Age Beverage Corporations. We will keep valuing our products, tradition, and science. Things will change in the following: vision, scale, and speed. I was so impressed by the vision that Brent Willis shared: "We will be the world's best and greatest healthy beverage company. We will make anyone who associates with this business to be healthy and financially independent." The opportunity to receive the stock options from New Age was given to IPCs. IPCs and Morinda staff became shareholders, so we are equal partners in building a big project in the world. Second, scale. Channels will be expanded in addition to Morinda direct selling approach. Our business is no longer staying only within MLM; the new channels are retail, ecommerce, and medical. The scale of our business is expanded now. Third, speed. One month past since the merger. So many great announcements took place during 2019 LC. I felt that the speed of our business will be accelerated. CBD will play a significant role for us, and we will be the first and fastest in this category in Japan. The CBD opportunity is like starting up a new company. We keep the pioneer spirit in our business. One of my respecting mentors told me, "The fate of the company depends on the top executive." New Age Beverage Corporation proves that. Brent Willis has made a career of leading big companies such as Coca Cola and Kraft to successful business. He has a winner's mentality. He knows how to get the company to that level. I talked to Shiromizu-san and J.R. Wadsworth about this. They said they also felt the same as I did. We are so fortunate to be with this company at the right time and right place. They said they were more excited than ever before. I am still excited about this business. We have witnessed that a new age has begun. IPCs will change. There are two types of people: first, people that feel the sense of opportunity and change how to do business right away. Second, people that do not change nor do anything at all. Obviously, the first type will get the opportunity and ride on the opportunity. Morinda business continues with New Age!  </p> <p><strong>Rinako Murakami:</strong> I was not there when the Morinda business started. I assume all the leaders and IPCs at that time must have felt the same I feel right now. I will go and look for three new people who have potential to be new Jades. Morinda provided a golden ticket for us. We just simply have to go and get it. I would like to do business with people who feel the sense of opportunity to grab this ticket!  We just need to speed up the process.</p> <p><strong>Akemi Hamauchi:</strong> Brent's closing remarks moved me. I felt his sincerity, and could imagine how the Morinda business would be number-one in the healthy beverage industry. I assume other IPCs have felt the same way. I want to increase 24,000 personal volumes for the stock option program. I will challenge all my group members to accomplish this.</p> <p><strong>Mari Asano:</strong> Brent concluded the event by saying he would support us. His message reached my heart. Although the air conditioning was so strong and cold in that room, during the last session, there was electricity in the room. I even forgot about the coldness at that moment. I started listing what I will do for next 30-60-90 days as the owner of this business. I also sorted my group members by category. I want to focus on serious business builders. I also purchased three kinds of New Age Beverages products in Maui. I will get my group members to taste these products at group meetings.</p> <p><strong>Chizuko Fukui:</strong> Most impressive moment for me was when Brent said "I will lead you" in the last speech. Also, I was so moved by the younger generation IPCs from Osaka and other parts of Japan. When I listened to them at country breakout sessions, I started imagining how the future of the Morinda business will be. I already started building organization for 24,000 QV. I will encourage myself to sponsor new PMs. I also challenged my group members to sponsor new PMs.</p> <p><strong>Maki Ishikawa:</strong> My excitement is still hot even now. I want to work with my husband on our Morinda business this year. I will focus more on opportunity this year.</p> <p><strong>Ai Nishihara:</strong> I became convinced that we will become the world's number-one healthy beverage company after listening to CEO Brent Willis. My pitch will change from noni is great to join the business that transforms people's lives. My vision was enlarged. I've already had a meeting with my group members. We are so different from other MLMs. I had great time mingling with IPCs from the Osaka area. I learned a lot from them during the event.</p> <p><strong>Hiroko Kurosawa:</strong> Everything was great. I do appreciate Morinda for inviting me to be there. Morinda invested in us, so I must contribute. All IPCs are great active leaders. I learned a lot of things from them.</p> <p><strong>Kyomi Yamauchi:</strong> The Morinda business is evolving, improving in terms of product, opportunity, science, research, and friendly to people. I will talk to my group members about how the sponsoring system works with the opportunity brought by the merger. Food culture has dramatically changed in Okinawa. I will propose healthy food choices and side business opportunity for Okinawan people.</p> <p><strong>Ruri Kondo:</strong> I would like to qualify for the stock option program. I have been struggling to meet the qualification of TeMana Star. While participating in the event in Maui, I learned great things from other leaders and from the presentations given by Brent Willis and the Morinda staff. I set goals and planned how to achieve them. New PM sponsoring and title advancement activity are the keys. Discovery parties play a significant role for my group, especially for reaching the 20-30s generation. I want to be a Pearl by June.</p> <p><strong>Nobumi Makino:</strong> I was so excited to see all possible products coming from New Age Beverages. As soon as I arrived home, I had a meeting with my group members. We reset the goal to go over the baseline of ASQV4 and QV6 in December 2018. We want to help 10 new personal paid-as Jade advancements. We will maximize the sponsoring system from February 1. First, we purchase the pack and complete the challenge, while challenging newly signed-up PMs to do the same. We will review our contact list and start contacting them again with these packs.</p> <p><strong>Hiramine-san:</strong> New CEO Brent Willis is a great person. I felt his passion. He touched my heart by saying, "This is your company. Make this company great." I need to grow my business and the size of my organization. I've already thought about who I really want to do business with. We loved the Jackie Lee 14-Day Challenge, so the Sponsoring System is such a great tool for us. The opportunity to create a stream of income through this opportunity has been well-received by my group members. I want to help my group members earn their products for free.</p> <p><strong>Tomiko Yoshioka:</strong> Everything was impressive. Brent's character and passion are wonderful. I want to follow him. Qualifying 25,000 MLP is must. My leader and mentor Watanabe-san and I had a serious meeting. He also committed to come to Yamaguchi for helping our meetings. I am totally committed to this project. I am sharing all I learned with my group members now. We will use the Sponsoring System and stock program.</p> <p><strong>Noriko Ichise:</strong> It was such a stimulating experience for me. I feel overwhelmed by the experience and the privilege to be there with other global leaders. From the last MU in Miyazaki and Leadership Circle, everything has changed in speed. My business has to go along with this speed. I want to go to GBS next year with my group members. I feel that the shortcut to successful business is to incorporate all Morinda initiatives into our group 100 percent.</p> <p><strong>Seiichi Shiromizu:</strong> I was fired up the whole time during Leadership Circle. I will advance to PDP, MCE, and EAD in 2019. I am looking forward to seeing how Brent as the new CEO will take this company to the next level. It is so important to be to be energized. I sense that synergetic effect will happened with this merger. I will do what I committed to do. New personal paid-as Jade 1,000 is a great goal for Japan. I want to help my group members to advance to Jade. Next year, cruising in Tahiti impressed me. I want to be there with my group members. We all can be uplifted in Tahiti.</p> <p><strong>Hidenori Kitagawa:</strong> I felt Brent's spirit. His speech touched us so strongly.</p> <p><strong>Noriko Toyama:</strong> I will focus on sponsoring activity with this merger opportunity.</p> <p><strong>Hiroko Ogura:</strong> I felt I came back to the start line. Brent's last speech touched my heart, so I want to bring people to see what I witnessed during this event. I want my group members to experience what I have experienced over and over. I will share a vision of this business and company. I will not do what I used to do. I will change to do something more focused, powerful, and simple. I will review the contents of our meetings, seminars, and activities.</p> <p><strong>Natsumi Smith:</strong> I felt Brent's passion. Our business needs to speed up.</p> <p><strong>Kazushi Muzumura:</strong> Vision and scale - I would like to talk about this with this opportunity. The new CEO's approach and his vision will move people and bring in new people. I will present what he shared to my group members.</p> <p><strong>Mari Nunokawa:</strong> I felt so close to IPCs from other parts of the world. I even had a chance to talk to them. Saito-san and Art Lee-san taught me to do activity ahead of time. This is a forward-thinking approach. What I experienced in Maui can make this possible. I felt the evolution of this business and this project. The company is transforming, so I must do the same.</p> <p><strong>Yoshiko Yamate:</strong> Before I listened to new CEO Brent Willis, I was afraid of the merger and of something negative happening to us. Now, I am caught in the wave by a New Age. His last speech got us to our feet. It was goosebump moment!  I will start to make a solid organization and grow by making six new Jades in my sixth generation. My pitch will expand to many pitches with these opportunities.</p> <p><strong>Hiromi Kamata:</strong> J.R. Wadsworth and Art Lee both told us they have been doing this business for fun. Now, I would like to focus more on the opportunities with speed. I would like to help 10 new people become Jades. Speed is a key.</p> <p><strong>Noriko Teraoka;</strong> I used to feel I am a sales representative, but now I became an owner of this business. I appreciate Morinda for involving me this time to launch the strategy for 2019. I will work faster. CBD sounds interesting.  </p> <p><strong>Yoko Sugimoto:</strong> I want to focus on how many people we can bring to Morinda University. I have one more month to work and prepare for the next MU in Taiwan. The Hokuriku area will change with this opportunity. I am deeply appreciating Morinda for inviting me this time.</p> <p><strong>Mayumi Jitsugiri:</strong> My group has caught the momentum from last year. Everything presented during this event will add more fuel to our business. It was also the first time for me to be with other group members and leaders. I also found a noni tree and brought that with me to Japan. I will bring more people to the Tokyo monthly meeting in February. I want the Toyama prefecture to be number one in the Hokuriku area.</p> <p><strong>Hiroko Osuga:</strong> I never felt something so powerful while involved with the Morinda business, and I felt so fortunate to be a part of it. I want to sponsor more new people to bring to Morinda University. I will start an individual meeting with group members. Time does not wait for us or our business. We have to catch up in proper time. Speed is a key.</p> <p><strong>Takashi Hagihara:</strong> Expanding channels and product opportunity with speed - I felt so strongly about this while listening to Brent's speech. We will catch up with the speed of this opportunity. I will revise the contents of our seminars and meetings by focusing on opportunities and speed. I do this in Hamamatsu and Omiya.</p> <p><strong>Ayumi Kitsunai:</strong> I got to talk to leaders whom I never talked to before. I want to help create more new Jades. Speed is important now. I have to be leading the way before my group members as an example.</p> <br />]]></description> </item> <item> <title><![CDATA[IPCs excited, bolstered by Leadership Circle announcements]]></title> <link>https://morinda.com/en-us/news/6594122/IPCs excited, bolstered by Leadership Circle announcements</link> <pubDate>Tue, 29 Jan 2019 15:29:38 -0700</pubDate> <media:thumbnail url="https://morinda.com/filestores/4N/4Nu6ONW6VlsIjLP3nW69/Leadership Circle IPCs thumbnail.jpg" width="140" height="90" ></media:thumbnail> <guid>https://morinda.com/en-us/news/6594122/IPCs excited, bolstered by Leadership Circle announcements</guid> <description><![CDATA[<p><i>Morinda's recent Leadership Circle event has generated a great deal of buzz among IPCs</i></p> <p><i><img alt="IPCs" width="100%" src="https://morinda.com/filestores/4N/4Nu6ONW6VlsIjLP3nW69/Leadership Circle IPCs cover image.jpg" /></i></p> <p>When visiting paradise, usually that's all that one can focus on. But at Morinda's recent Leadership Circle in Maui, IPCs had much more than gorgeous beaches and festive luaus to enjoy.</p> <p>With Morinda's numerous product and program announcements, instruction from various leaders, and more tantalizing information to take in, IPCs came away invigorated and excited about the bright future Morinda is providing.</p> <p>Here's just a sample of the feedback we received from the IPCs in attendance:</p> <p><strong>Brandon Missouri (USA)-</strong>The time is right now, there is so much opportunity! One of the things that excited me most was hearing about the opportunity inherent in the New Age stock program. Even if you have never worked with stocks, you can participate in this program, you can own a piece of something and reap the rewards as your work and the work of others makes it grow. This is an exciting time to be engaged in building your business.</p> <p><strong>Leonardo Arie Wibowo (Indonesia)-</strong>When I heard about the Morinda-New Age merger, I was initially very confused. I had so many questions, but there were rumors flying around that made it all so much worse. I needed facts about the merger and Morinda's vision. I came to Leadership Circle for one reason. I wanted to know our new CEO and wanted to see what direction Morinda would be going. I got answers to those questions in the first day. As Brent Willis, our new CEO, spoke, I gained the insight I needed to be confident that this is exactly the direction I want to be going. Leadership Circle both calmed me and made me so excited for the coming year.</p> <p><strong>Anastasia Henny (Australia)-</strong>Morinda's product line is expanding! The additional opportunities coming from the merger of Morinda and New Age will allow me to significantly expand my network and reach new generations.</p> <br />]]></description> </item> <item> <title><![CDATA[Morinda and New Age Beverages Corporation Chief Executive Officer Brent Willis Delivers Keynote Address at 2019 Leadership Circle Event]]></title> <link>https://morinda.com/en-us/news/6591114/Morinda and New Age Beverages Corporation Chief Executive Officer Brent Willis Delivers Keynote Address at 2019 Leadership Circle Event</link> <pubDate>Mon, 28 Jan 2019 10:57:49 -0700</pubDate> <media:thumbnail url="https://morinda.com/filestores/PX/PX4PRnnm37CmeCulhUya/20190120_004057203_iOS.jpg" width="140" height="90" ></media:thumbnail> <guid>https://morinda.com/en-us/news/6591114/Morinda and New Age Beverages Corporation Chief Executive Officer Brent Willis Delivers Keynote Address at 2019 Leadership Circle Event</guid> <description><![CDATA[<p>-          <i>Outlines new vision and mission for the Company to become the leading healthy beverages and lifestyles company in the world</i></p> <p>-          <i>Defines clear path to transformative growth for Morinda in 2019 and beyond</i></p> <p>WAILEA, HAWAII-January 25, 2019-Brent Willis, CEO of Morinda and New Age Beverages Corporation (NASDAQ: NBEV), delivered an inspiring keynote address at Morinda's annual Leadership Circle event held in Maui, laying out his vision for the new year.</p> <p>Willis outlined the growth strategy for 2019 that represents significant opportunity for all Morinda associates (fellow owners) and Independent Product Consultants (IPCs). The strategy includes first staying focused on executing its existing business plan including growth behind Tahitian Noni Juice, expansion of TeMana Noni + Collagen, and expanding the TeMana line globally. Coming in the near future will be the opportunity to sell the New Age portfolio of products to traditional retail, and more products for the direct-to-consumer channel including CBD and the Health Sciences portfolio.    </p> <p>Willis said, "I am so excited and honored to be part of Morinda. The people are fantastic and the opportunity of what we can do together is completely untapped. We have everything we need to be successful, and nothing is going to stand in our way of achieving success. Our key is to be fast, first, and focused-and maybe a bit fanatical. As we do, everyone will benefit as a fellow shareholder."</p> <p>Willis went on to define both the company's vision and its mission. "Our vision is to inspire and educate the planet to 'Live Healthy,'' Willis said. "Staying true to that purpose will enable us to achieve our corporate objective of becoming the world's leading healthy beverages and lifestyles company."</p> <p>Brent's remarks to the more than 150 top Morinda partners were the culmination of a week's worth of powerful new news shared by members of the Morinda leadership team.</p> <ul class="unIndentedList"> <li> During the event, new Noni + CBD product concepts were unveiled to raucous applause. These concepts include a Tahitian Noni Juice and CBD single-service shot, a 500 ml bottle and a refreshing tea. Noni + CBD products are all slated for release later this year, and are expected to build on the model and success recently experienced with the TeMana Noni + Collagen launch.</li> </ul> <ul class="unIndentedList"> <li> In 2019, Morinda's distributors will be armed with new functional beverages from the New Age Health Sciences Division including 'nHanced Radiation and 'nHanced Recovery . These products will help Morinda distributors take advantage of New Age's extensive scientific experience and intellectual property in the healthy functional beverages space.</li> </ul> <ul class="unIndentedList"> <li> Morinda announced a ground-breaking and innovative stock program for top performers in the direct-to-consumer channel. This new program, which will take effect this year, will give Morinda's global force of IPCs an opportunity to earn NBEV stock through successful sales performance.</li> </ul> <ul class="unIndentedList"> <li> An all-new aggressive e-commerce initiative was announced, which will re-architect New Age Beverages' approach to this channel of business with an objective to build a global subscriber-based system. With the initiative there will be an opportunity for all our Morinda associates and IPCs to become affiliates and gain affiliate bonuses, while at the same time benefiting the company with the expansion of the New Age portfolio in 60+ countries around the globe, and significantly strengthening our social marketing worldwide.</li> </ul> <ul class="unIndentedList"> <li> Kelly Olsen, Morinda and New Age Beverages Chief Commercial Officer, introduced a new leadership program for Morinda distributors called "Success Path." This new all-encompassing system includes sponsoring, training, business development, rewards and recognition for Morinda's global sales force. </li> </ul> <p>Olsen commented on the current feeling surrounding Morinda: "This feels like the very early days of Morinda. Excitement abounds, and there is ground-floor opportunity everywhere you look. Our current plan that we have in place is a great one, and I expect everyone to stay focused on achieving it. It is very important that we get a fast start to 2019, to build credibility of what all of us at Morinda are capable of.   I am even more excited about what's coming and the opportunity it represents for everyone. 2019 is going to be a great year for all of us."</p> <p><img alt="Leadership Circle" width="100%" src="https://morinda.com/filestores/PX/PX4PRnnm37CmeCulhUya/People 2.jpg" /></p> <p><img alt="Aloha" width="100%" src="https://morinda.com/filestores/PX/PX4PRnnm37CmeCulhUya/Aloha.jpg" /></p> <p><img alt="Hawaii" width="100%" src="https://morinda.com/filestores/PX/PX4PRnnm37CmeCulhUya/Water.jpg" /></p>]]></description> </item> </channel> </rss>
