4 Key Reasons to Become a Distributor with AMMEX


As we start the new year, change is on most people’s minds, in the yearly tradition of making resolutions for the New Year. The typical resolutions revolve around our health, our relationships and our finances, but what about our businesses?  Here are 4 Key Reasons to Become a Distributor with AMMEX

The nature of business is always evolving, and changing.  One of the most common business issues is also one of the most perplexing: when successful companies face big changes in their environment, they often fail to respond quickly and effectively. Unable to defend themselves against competitors armed with new products, technologies, or strategies, they watch their sales and profits erode, their best people leave, and their stock valuations tumble. Some ultimately manage to recover—usually after painful rounds of downsizing and restructuring—but many don’t.  We have all heard the old adage:

 “If you keep doing the same thing, then you will keep getting the same results.”

So what are you going to change about this year, to take your business to the next level?  At AMMEX we understand what it takes to navigate change and we support our distributors with new products, state of the art technologies, and wining sales support and strategies for selling gloves and barrier protection products.  And, we don’t just give you gloves to sell – we help you sell more.

Disruptive Technology: Be Confident with AMMEX


A disruptive technology is one that displaces an established technology and shakes up the industry or a ground-breaking product that creates a completely new industry.  The explosion in popularity of mobile devices, social media, cloud solutions, big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) are forcing organizations to change the way they do business. Has your Glove Vendor taken the right steps to navigate and leverage disruptive technologies? Disruptive Technology: Be Confident with AMMEX

How have the following disruptive technologies changed your everyday way of life?

  • The personal computer (PC) displaced the typewriter and forever changed the way we work and communicate.
  • Email transformed the way we communicate, largely displacing letter-writing and disrupting the postal and greeting card industries.
  • Smartphones largely replaced cell phones and PDAs and, because of the available apps, also disrupted: pocket cameras, MP3 players, calculators and GPS devices, among many other possibilities.
  • For some mobile users, smartphones often replace laptops. Others prefer a tablet.
  • Cloud computing has been a hugely disruptive technology in the business world, displacing many resources that would conventionally have been located in-house or provided as a traditionally hosted service.
  • Social networking has had a major impact on the way we communicate and — especially for personal use — disrupting telephone, email, instant messaging and event planning.

One of the most consistent patterns in business is the failure of leading companies to stay at the top of their industries when technologies or markets change.  Companies must formulate a strategic plan that includes core competencies and future business objectives, and is in step with the customer and the changing global marketplace.

We have remained technology competitive by integrating systems such as QR codes, Doc-link, Vidyo, and our new state-of-the-art Website.

7 Benefits of Gratitude

Today is a good time to pause for a moment to consider the importance and benefits of gratitude.  Although it is nice to count your blessings on Thanksgiving with friends and family, being thankful throughout the year could have tremendous benefits on your quality of life.  Here’s 7 Benefits of Gratitude.

Gratitude, by definition, is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.  It is also a proven attribute that is associated with greater happiness, as well as better physical and mental health.  According to Harvard Medical School, “Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.”

“We are grateful for our employees, distributors and customers. Happy Thanksgiving from AMMEX!”

Here are 7 Benefits of Gratitude and how they can positively impact your life:

1.  Gratitude opens the door to more relationships

We all know that saying “thank you” is good manners, but did you know that showing appreciation can help you win new friends and build new relationships?, according to a 2104 study published in Emotion. The study found that thanking a new acquaintance makes them more likely to seek an ongoing relationship. So whether you thank a stranger for holding the door or you send a quick thank-you note to that co-worker who helped you with a project, acknowledging other people’s contributions can lead to new opportunities.

2.  Grateful people are more hopeful

Studies have shown that being grateful fosters a sense of well being and hope.  When people actively take the time to list the things they are grateful for, they feel better mentally and physically than participants who haven’t done the same.  In other words, gratitude’s benefits are not only correlational, but in some cases causal. Gratitude can act “directly, as a causal agent of well-being; and indirectly, as a means of buffering against negative states and emotions.

3.  Improve physical health with gratitude

Gratitude improves physical health. Grateful people experience fewer aches and pains and they report feeling healthier than other people.  Not surprisingly, grateful people are also more likely to take care of their health.  They exercise more often and are more likely to attend regular check-ups with their doctors, which is likely to contribute to further longevity.

Being appreciative has powerful effects on your body. Researchers have linked gratitude to lower blood pressure, fewer aches and pains, and improved immunity. A 2015 study published in Spirituality in Clinical Practice found grateful people even have healthier hearts.

4.  Be a better leader

Want to keep your employees happy and motivated? Show your appreciation. Employees who feel their work is appreciated and recognized by their boss are more likely to work harder.  Grateful leaders motivate their employees to be more productive, according to researchers at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. The study found that employees who were thanked by their managers made 50% more fundraising calls than their counterparts who hadn’t heard the same token of appreciation.

5.  Increase your resilience

Resilience is defined in psychology as the capacity to cope with stress, traumatic events and adversity. There has been a tremendous amount of research that has shown gratitude not only reduces stress, but it may also play a major role in overcoming trauma.  Studies suggest that War Veterans with higher levels of gratitude experienced lower rates of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  Another study found that gratitude was a major contributor to resilience following September 11.  Recognizing all you have to be thankful for – even during the worst times of your life – fosters resilience.

6.  Gratitude improves self-esteem

A study published in the Journal of Applied Sport Psychology found that gratitude increased athlete’s self-esteem, which is an essential component to optimal performance. Other studies have shown that gratitude reduces social comparisons. Rather than becoming resentful toward people who have more money or better jobs – which is a major factor in reduced self-esteem- grateful people are able to appreciate other people’s accomplishments.

7.  Have more energy to work on your goals

Taking note of what you’re grateful for could help you reach your goals. A 2003 study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that college students who kept gratitude journals reported higher levels of alertness, enthusiasm, determination, energy and attentiveness compared to their counterparts.


Gratitude is a way for people to appreciate what they have instead of always reaching for something new in the hopes it will make them happier, or thinking they can’t feel satisfied until every physical and material need is met. Gratitude helps people refocus on what they have instead of what they lack.  We all have the ability and opportunity to cultivate gratitude, not only on Thanksgiving but throughout the year.   Simply take a few moments to focus on all that you have – rather than complain about all the things you think you deserve.  Developing an “attitude of gratitude” is one of the simplest ways to improve your satisfaction with life.
