MMWWD Blog en Wed, 24 Jan 2018 07:01:45 +0100 MMWWD ADIEU, DEAR BLOG! Mon, 31 Aug 2015 10:00:00 +0200 At the end of the fiscal year we contact you again on our blog. This time from our house in the mountains, where we enjoy beautiful blue-white late summer days. Behind us is a trip to East Asia; ahead various birthdays, a convent in Madrid and two exciting guest speaker appearances in front of thousands of business partners in Mexico. We will promptly report about this - but no longer via blog, but on other, more modern social media. Our blog has become a little old-fashioned throughout the years, and with more and more business partners we already connect through other, more modern ways of communication for a long time. To join is quite easy for you: Follow our link to Facebook. In parting, we have garnished this last blog entry with photos of the for us most important events of the year. For the coming fiscal year, we wish you all the best and lots of success!..

It pleased and satisfied us tremendously to see the whole big, three generations comprehensive family gathering. A selected band played Evas favorite songs, the weather also was good, and so it could be celebrated in the open air until late at night .....

Clearly we have been walking every day in the nature; we also had time for rowing. While not on the Silver Lake, but on Lake Thumsee and Lake Hintersee... (read more) FROM LAKE TO LAKE Wed, 08 Jul 2015 10:00:00 +0200 Looking back, we have noticed that after the LTS on the Ionian Sea we were and still are staying at a lot of water. In the mountains, where we enjoy the summer as often as we can, we prefer walking around mountain lakes like the Lake Thumsee, Lake Frillensee and Lake Taubensee. Probably because such clear, shimmering water in the infernal heat of Bavaria gives at least an impression of coolness.....

Four weeks passed so quickly! We were pretty stressed: end of May the Latin American Diamond conference namely took place in Europe, and clearly our friends from Mexico and Brazil wanted to visit us necessarily, and not just at home in Ruhpolding and Baeumenheim but prefer that we show them what our beautiful country has to offer. In addition to that we had family visiting from Berlin, so our house was continuously full of laughter and life...

First to Madrid to the Top4 weekend seminar. On Friday our Spanish business partners picked us up at the airport; since the seminar began only on Saturday, we had time for a stroll through the historic Madrid this time. For years we have been to Madrid again and again, but so far we have only seen our hotel and the event hall, before we had to leave. This time we explored Old Town, Cathedral and Royal Palace accompanied by Spanish and Mexican Diamonds. Also, we were lucky enough to enjoy a colorful procession in the "Calle Mayor" passing by...

Our downline Founders Crown Ambassador Natalija Yena had invited to celebrate her 50th birthday in Yalta. Of course we could not say no. Too bad that we should already be in Washington DC two days later. So we met at night of April 30th in Yalta, woke up on this last April day with glorious sunshine and went to an extensive exploration tour with our Russian and Ukrainian friends. Our recent stay in the Crimea is now more than a decade back, and we wanted to know if everything is as beautiful as we had remembered. Well, the mountainous coastline remains nice but the quirrlige feel of a chic seaside is barely felt ... In the early evening Natalija's party began in the largest and most modern hotel of Yalta - an impressive dinner show, which was organized and disputed by her diamond organizations, and I have to say: Kudos to what talents lie in our organizations! Final highlight was Nataijas own appearance and a fireworks display, as Yalta had not seen for a long time...

Russia is our biggest market, and Maya & David as well as our groups waited impatiently for us in St. Petersburg. The next day we went straight on to Yekaterinburg. There - beyond the Urals, where Europe ends and Asia begins - a weekend seminar with over 1500 participants took place and we were announced as the main attraction. Although it was sunny but bitterly cold, the atmosphere was bombastic...

These were six wonderful days and nights we spent there with our European leaders at Amway's invitation. A steady breeze made the heat bearable, and also the rafting tour on the Ayung River cared for a cooling. There has been much talks - most of the took place outdoor... (read more) TWO BAVARIAN WEEKS Wed, 25 Mar 2015 10:00:00 +0100 Some things happen unexpectedly. In the second week of March, we met in Munich for the EDAC Spring Convention. In the daily newspaper in the hotel I found a report on the current situation in the Crimea. A few years ago we had held a week-long seminar there in Yalta with Ukrainian and Russian leaders. Son David and grandson Frederic MM had been with us at that time. I said to Eva: "Do you remember when we were in Yalta? Also a place where we will never go back again." You should never say never! Ironically, at the EDAC farewell dinner we were told that we all shall meet in Yalta at the end of April. It is to honor a downline Crown Ambassador. Sometimes unexpected things happen... (read more)
