Chris Martin is here to share his grassroots non-profit: Advancement by Involvement (ABI). ABI is a mindset that focuses on the idea that getting involved is the best way to get ahead in life.
ABI supports its network of non-profit partners, small business teammates, and the communities they serve by bridging the gap between resources and their target population. They do this by hosting events that promote community engagement, spotlight local non-profits, and provide revenue for local artists, small businesses, and sole proprietors.
Their ultimate goal is to create opportunities for entrepreneurs, influencers, and community advocates to expand their network, build their vision, and achieve their dreams.
If you want to learn how to get involved, check them out at https://www.advancementbyinvolvement.org/

In celebration of International Women’s Day, our fearless Woman Nation members from Nogales participated in a self-defense workshop. The class was a rewarding way to learn the skills and tools necessary to fight off a potential attacker. They were met with staged challenges and could practice with their coach and one another. In addition to providing a fun and invigorating workout, these exercises helped them build even more confidence if they face such a challenge in real life.
You won’t want to mess with these ladies…Talk about the power of #LIVEWELL!

Our Latonia team made a huge IMPACT by providing gift bags to the homeless. They had a goal to put together 50 bags and crushed that goal by handing out a total of 80! This allowed them to help even more organizations than originally planned!
The gift bags contained every day essential items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, hats, gloves, water, and more to help people in need.
Great job, Latonia and thanks to all who participated to #LEAVEITBETTER!

Our Street Team is a great way to…yep…you guessed it…get our name out into the streets! We go out to promote working at RDI by telling everyone what an amazing company we are. Sometimes, we’re out holding signs, passing out flyers, and even attending events to talk to the public about all the wonderful opportunities RDI has to offer!
Say Hello to Chris Martin, our trusty VP of Operations for the West Coast! Chris has been with RDI for 14 years where he started as an agent!
Chris grew up in Oxford and throughout life has had 8 siblings! His childhood dog was a German Shepherd mix named Princess. Currently, he snuggles with Dobbie, a Yorkie/Chihuahua!
His favorite team are the LA Rams and his favorite color is green because it’s the color of WINNING!
Chris has had two amazing mentors throughout his career at RDI. Matt Dowd and Joe Catanzaro. Joe and Chris were actually roommates for a bit! The biggest things he learned from his mentors were financial security, independence, and making sure he doesn’t ever waste his potential.
Recently, he’s been eating grapefruit by the tub every morning. (We think it’s the secret to his glowing skin.)
His passion for hip-hop led him to start a non-profit to throw hip hop shows with a community-unity and small business flare added to it!
Last week, RDI’ers attended Bootcamp to network with RDI Leadership and learn what it takes to pursue their goals within RDI. Attendees got to sit and talk with RDI leaders and executives and heard their RDI stories, all the different career paths available in our organization, and more.
Take a look at the Bootcamp highlights to see what all the hype is all about!
