Titus Soaks up National Convention Experience Looks Forward to Big Things in 2012
Penny Titus, of Reno, Nev.; joined the National Agents Alliance team three years ago in April. During that time, Titus, a member of the Andrew Taylor team, has been ill. However, her doctors have assured her that she is healing and will be able to walk across the stage at NAA’s National Convention in Jan. of 2013.
Titus says that Taylor has a big heart and has been more than understanding when it comes to Titus’ illness and recovery. Titus was able to attend the “Be Your Own Rock Star” Version 2.0 National Convention thanks to Taylor.
“Andrew believes in me and his team,” Titus said. “I know that the Lord put Andrew in my life and I am very grateful for this. I have learned so much from him and will continue to learn from him. It has been a great pleasure to watch Andrew develop into a loving and kind leader. He wants his whole team to be leaders! Andrew truly demonstrates ‘have fun, make money, and make a difference.’ He makes a difference in all the lives he touches.”
Titus said she appreciated hearing from members of the National Agents Alliance family, who have experienced struggles and success. She was particularly touched by Jane Albright’s story during the women’s seminar in Raleigh, N.C.
“She listed off all the reasons you could crumple a dollar bill and I could relate to 95 percent of the list,” Titus said. “Seeing her there knowing that she walk throw the shadow of death, overcame and moved on made me realized that I can too. I came away from the convention with a new believe in myself.”
Titus has chosen “Faith” as her word for 2012. She said she had lost some of that faith in the last couple years. She lost faith in herself and in the Lord. Titus said she is tired of being broke and tired of feeling like she is walking alone. After spending time with four other women at National Convention, Titus knows she is not alone.
“We became friends,” Titus said. “We shared, cried and laughed together. The Lord did answer my prayers with the new friendship from each of these young ladies.”
Titus was also impressed by National Agents Alliance President and CEO Andy Albright’s “Eight Core Values” speech.
“I became excited when you shared your values with the National Agents Alliance family,” Titus said. “Each value is what I strive to live for. These values are what the Lord wants each of us to live.”
Titus shared the following quote via email with Albright.
Rich vs. Poor
“A person is poor when his character is honeycombed with greed and warped by dishonesty. When we yield to misconduct under pressure, we are poor. A person who has to beg for bread is not poor if he has not bent to expediency. An individual is headed for personal bankruptcy when he sells his character and reputation for cash, honor, or convenience. We are poor in character when we think getting by is a substitute for doing our best. Virtue, action,
and truth properly blended in life make a person rich.” – Marvin J. Ashton, “It’s No Fun Being Poor,” Ensign, September 1982.
Titus said that passage made her realize the heights she can reach in 2012 with National Agents Alliance.
“From this quote I realize that I am richer than I believe,” Titus said. “I do need to work on giving my all to achieve my very best. Thank you!”
