One other perks of this business is the Performance Rewards Program. This program allows you to work towards the goal of earning the Trip for 1 or 2 each year. There is no max allowed number of winners, if you meet the qualifications then you win - it's that simple!
Unlike other companies who offer free trips (usually on a weekend and for a couple of days), we do not stick you in a board room for 8 hours of each day. When you get this trip for 5 days you get to relax and have fun. We may have a short morning chat once or a dinner to meet someone special but the rest of the time is yours. Watkins also usually plans a day excursion which is optional.
I've been on a couple of these trips and it's consistently wonderful! I get to meet other consultants and upline leaders I haven't seen in awhile. We share stories and tips and ideas and mostly, we get to relax and have fun! I always plan an extra day trip somewhere to get the most out of the travel destination and I will book extra nights as well! It really is a great program and instead of paying for a vacation out of your pocket - you can let Watkins take care of airfare, hotel, food and beverage and just relax!
Also, another great perk is if you can't go on a vacation you have earned, the company will offer you a cash bonus instead! Sometimes life has other plans and we can't get away on vacation - Watkins still rewards you with cash bonuses. For example, I have earned seven trips but only went on three because sometimes you just can't get away. The extra cash is great!
