Martin County Home-Based Business Direct Marketing Company Selected to Participate in State’s GrowFL Economic Gardening Program
PALM CITY, Fla. (July 15, 2011) –Life’s Abundance, a home-based business network marketing company, recently was selected to receive free technical assistance through the state-funded GrowFL program.
Founded in 1998 as Trilogy International by Dennis and Carol Berardi, Life’s Abundance is a network marketer of healthy products for people, pets and the planet, according to current President and Chief Executive Officer Lester Thornhill.
“Our company was born out of a belief that both people and pets deserve healthier, more effective products to help them lead fulfilling and abundant lives,” Thornhill said. “We are absolutely firm in our commitment to provide safe and effective products that satisfy this principle, while giving people an opportunity to earn an additional, ongoing income.”
Thornhill said charitable work also plays a role in their success, as a portion of the profits help various animal rescue groups.
With 31 employees at locations in Florida and Illinois, Life’s Abundance already is seeing the benefits of the affiliation with GrowFL through CEO roundtables and forums, market research strategy analysis, database research and website optimization.
Part of the Florida Economic Gardening Institute, GrowFL was created in 2009 by the Florida Legislature and is based at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, according to Dr. Tom O’Neal, executive director of the Florida Economic Gardening Institute.
“Life’s Abundance is an ideal candidate as it has shown that it has potential to continue growing and because of its charitable philosophy,” said Dr. O’Neal, who also is associate vice president for the University of Central Florida’s Office of Research and Commercialization.
Thornhill said his company is grateful to GrowFL as it doesn’t have a budget for the high-caliber networking opportunities being provided.
“In terms of the newly available research, including demographics, SEO data and much more, we probably could not have afforded these needed services on our own.”
