The convention runs through August 13 and draws 25,000 global entrepreneurs to Greensboro for a weekend of motivating events to help energize and motivate people who want to earn success at their own businesses. Elizabeth Weber is one of those entrepreneurs.

"We teach people how they can simply convert their spending money into earning. People shop every day for things that they want, we can show them just by reaching into the money they're already spending, they can create an income," said Weber. Weber says she's made millions through Market America and SHOP.COM.

"I've made a lot of money on that. I've only had to work this business five years to build over a million dollars a year residually and it's been paying me for 20 years," said Weber.

On August 10-13 Market America/SHOP.COM, the North Carolina-based internet retailing powerhouse will host its annual International Convention in its hometown of Greensboro, NC at the Greensboro Coliseum, hosting approximately 25,000 entrepreneurs from around the world.
