Executive Team

After two decades of continuous growth, the best is yet to come!

JR Ridinger

Over two decades ago we started Market America as a means to empower entrepreneurs, and since that time our business has evolved into global phenomenon unlike any other. It was an idea ahead of its time and ahead of the curve which has helped create over 300 millionaires worldwide. SHOP.COM and Market America are leveling the playing field by giving the power back to the consumer, and helping everyone convert their spending into earning with a revolutionary concept known as the Shopping Annuity.

By leveraging our collective purchasing power we are changing the game, and helping people around the world generate residual income with the UnFranchise Business. This year we celebrated our 25th year in business, and what an amazing journey it’s been so far. Like all companies we experienced our share of growing pains at first, but along the way we’ve refined our business and the tools we use to empower UnFranchise Owners.

During the past few years we’ve launched amazing new brands like Lumière de Vie® and DNA Miracles™, while continuing to build on the success of incredible product lines such as Motives®, Isotonix®, TLS® Weight Loss Solution, and nutraMetrix® – just to name a few. In fact, this past year the Motives cosmetics brand experienced tremendous growth on social media, with an Instagram following swelling to well over 1.4 million people. This is not only a testament to our amazing products, but to the power of these social platforms as tools to help grow the business and increase brand recognition.

Through new technologies, new partnerships, and new initiatives, SHOP.COM and Market America will continue to lead the social shopping revolution for years to come. We are built on product, and powered by people – people just like you. There’s never been a better time to join us by becoming an UnFranchise Owner, and grabbing the reins of your financial destiny. We have a proven system backed by cutting edge tools that allow you to achieve success with our 2-3 year plan – so you can leave behind that dead end job and contribute to your family’s lasting prosperity, rather than your boss’s.

I can’t wait to see where the next 25 years takes us, as we continue to share the UnFranchise Business in new markets around the world and help empower consumers and entrepreneurs with the Shopping Annuity. We are a truly global business, connecting individuals economically and helping build success though teamwork and mutual support rather than completion. We realize that when it’s all said and done – success is a team sport. So join us, and be part of that winning team.

Keep Growing,
JR Ridinger's Signature
