I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the notion of togetherness. We need to feel a part of something, especially as typical social gatherings continue to be affected by social distancing requirements.
I believe it’s so important that we adhere to health experts’ recommendations. And you already know how I feel about building meaningful relationships.
Satisfying these two constructs requires that we become more creative in how we build, nurture, and maintain our relationships.
Fortunately, technology allows us to connect with others in ways that weren’t possible (or that were at least much costlier and more cumbersome) even a few years ago.

Adjusting & Adapting
Earlier this year, when we realized it wouldn’t be appropriate to gather in person for the 2020 USANA Asia Pacific Convention in Korea, we adjusted and created what we believed to be the next best thing.
Our incredible USANA Studios team, in partnership with countless other individuals, orchestrated and executed the six-part We Are USANA video series that featured many of the elements that make our live events so special (read my thoughts and watch the episodes here). It proved to be extremely successful. It gave us a glimpse into what the future of some of our events might look like.
Bonus: Here’s a clip from one of the episodes featuring excellent tips on how you can make your video conferencing sessions the best they can be.
Perhaps nothing will ever replace the face-to-face interaction that so many of us enjoy about live, in-person events. At the same time, I’m confident that togetherness isn’t bound by physical gatherings.
2020 USANA Americas & Europe Virtual Convention
This week, we will welcome the USANA Family — Associates, Preferred Customers, and Guests — to our 2020 USANA Americas & Europe Virtual Convention. It’s two days filled with world-class speakers, exciting product announcements, and opportunities to interact with presenters and each other.
It’s going to be a historic event you won’t want to miss.
Yes, we won’t get to meet in Salt Lake City as we have in years past. Yet, I look forward to joining you Aug. 14-15 as we reunite — together, virtually — as part of The Healthiest Family on Earth.
