Yesterday I started to write a post about Amway Global’s Team Nutrilite athletes that competed at the recent Beijing Olympic games. I instead up with a more personal post about the value of persistence – I quit. On Tuesday, Amway itself will publicly congratulation the athletes with a full page advertisement in USA Today (click the image to open the full version).
American sprinter Sanya Richards won Bronze in the Women’s 400m and Gold in the 4x400m relay, Asafa Powell was 5th in the Men’s 100m and anchored the Jamaican men’s 4x100m relay to a World Record. Team USA’s Jen Stuczynski lived up to her promise, winning Silver in the Women’s pole vault behind the incomparable Yelena Isinbayeva. Finally, Brazil’s Olympic football team, including superstar Ronaldinho, won Bronze in their competition. Together, Team Nutrilite’s athletes won 2 Gold, 1 Silver, and 2 Bronze medals.

The 21,000-square foot project includes interior renovation of the main lobby, auditorium, meeting rooms, clerestory gallery and adjoining spaces. The renovation is divided into three phases to allow Amway to maintain day-to-day operations.
Just to put the pressure on, it’s apparently all got to be complete by January 2009. Check out the post for a couple of nice graphics of what it will look like when complete. On the second rendering you’ll see in the background the “Founder’s Fundamentals” I mentioned in the last post.
