"We've catapulted from 2333 last year to number 915 this year and rank ninth for the top travel and hospitality companies. What a great achievement for our corporate team and Independent Representatives around the world who have worked so hard to deliver these results."
The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com is the most competitive crop in the list's history. The average company on the list achieved an impressive three-year growth of 490%.

"In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top. You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don't achieve that kind of success by accident."
