MonaVie Chief Marketing Officer Jeff Cohen spoke to The New York Times article on declining incomes and escalation in unemployment in his post, MonaVie Provides Answer to Economic Downturn. In this piece he referenced the combination of MonaVie’s exceptional products and innovative and dynamic compensation plan as the right opportunity at the right time.
In said article he reports that between 2000 and 2005, wellness grew from a $200 billion industry to $400 billion and on it's way to being the next trillion dollar industry has had a dramatic impact on the democratization of American wealth, simply by linking the need for wellness products with the network marketing, home-based entrepreneurial business model.
The fortunes to be made today and in the years ahead will be made by those who are involved in teaching people about new products and services that they either didn’t know existed or didn’t know were now affordable. That is, intellectual distribution, as opposed to physical distribution, is where the greatest fortunes are being made today and will continue to be made...
MonaVie is certainly providing all of the above by offering premium products, entrepreneurial opportunity (minus the overhead), in a highly scalable business model, that addresses unemployment, as well as underemployment with this thing called residual income.
The result? A steady increase in ordinary working-class people who are making their way into the new millionaire’s club, as well as an overall increase in individual income and net worth.
In addition, MonaVie is having a positive impact on quality of life because it’s no longer an option to simply make an income if you must sacrifice lifestyle, family and well being in order to do so.
In summary, we’re getting healthy, enjoying a balance of work and family and creating unprecedented wealth while at it. It’s hard to feel bad about any of that...am I right or am I right?

I am MonaVie. It's a simple declaration, with as many meanings as people who have said it in the weeks since MonaVie's 2011 International !magine Convention, where the phrase was introduced by President of North America Sales Jeff Graham.
So, perhaps you've said it or posted it to your Facebook page, but what does this phrase mean to YOU? We'd love to know.
Here's a great example by the beautiful and ever-so-sassy Doreen Matsumoto:
Since I have been in MonaVie, my life has been blessed; not only in my business, but also with my family and friends. MonaVie has allowed me to enjoy traveling and participating in business with my loved ones. MonaVie has enabled me to bless people’s lives with better health and nutrition, and to contribute generously to The MORE Project.
Remember: don’t leave anybody out; this opportunity is for everyone.
Special thanks to my upline and my down line.
Many blessings on your business.

Ruby in the next year
Chad’s mother, Kathryn Fyffe Peters, Silver Executive, wrote me several months ago to tell me about their incredibly talented son, winner of the “We Have Talent” contest at the R3Global Family Reunion. Chad is also a musical director at a high school in Suwannee, Georgia.
Calvin Becerra is the youngest Black Diamond in MonaVie history and his rise to such a rank is a true test of determination and willingness to hit the ground running, spending every waking moment when not working a tradition 9-5 job building his prospect list and enrolling new distributors.
“You have to be willing to work,” said Calvin. “Many are not willing to do that.”
Work was what took him to the rank of Black Diamond in a mere eight months after enrolling in MonaVie. However, just because you hit Black Diamond, doesn’t mean it’s smooth sailing thereafter. In Calvin’s case, Black Diamond was a starting point and launch pad for many lessons learned – lessons he has gladly agreed to share with us through a series of videos highlighting his own “a-ha” moments and best business building tips.

But first, let’s get back to Calvin’s story and lesson number one, which starts where his last Black Diamond documentary left off…
Lesson #1: Do not take your foot off the gas pedal and expect your business to build itself, especially if you did not build that business with a strong foundation.
Calvin learned this the hard way. Shortly after hitting Black Diamond he said he decided to take a step back and enjoy the fruits of his eight month labor.
“Where I went wrong is I took my foot off the gas and coasted for 5-6 months and it takes that long for people to lose faith in you,” said Calvin. “If you’re not doing anything then your people won’t do anything – your people are always watching you.”
Calvin said he stopped doing tasting parties, he stopped enrolling and he stopped leading.
He also experienced his first “jumpers” or those who left MonaVie for seemingly greener pastures and admits to having his own doubt and wondered if he should do the same. Luckily he took good friend and fellow Black Diamond Todd Hartog’s advice and put “principles before profit.”
Eventually his volume dropped to that of an Emerald (15,000 points) from Black Diamond (150,000 points), which to many a loss far less significant would have meant throwing in the towel but to Calvin, it meant an opportunity to rebuild and to do it on far more solid ground. But first, he sought the advice of other MonaVie leaders, gleaning as much information as he could get his hands on.
And then he went back to work, making himself a student of networking, and rebuilding his organization from the ground up, this time with some key principles in tact.
He became a prolific enroller, sponsoring 50-60 new distributors in the next year. Also, instead of being the sole leader within his organization, he encouraged his people to organize and sustain their own groups and tasting parties and to ultimately take charge of their own businesses.
Which was Lesson #2: When building a network, key principles must be locked in from the ground level and leaders forged or success is fleeting.
“What I realized right away is that relationships had to be molded and while I had achieved success my people were still just finding their way and if I didn’t build that community within my team and forge those relationships their businesses and subsequently my business would fall apart like in the past,” said Calvin.
Since then, Calvin considers the importance of empowering people right up there with enrolling.
He also decided to get himself grounded. He found just that when he met his fiancé Shannon, and as a new father he appreciates the strength and support of a strong partner who keeps him focused.

He also got behind the MonaVie brand, not just the products, this time around.
“The MonaVie brand is about more than products,” said Calvin. “It’s about success and strength.”
Finally, he launched himself into the social media platforms, learning as much as he could and using the content generated on MonaVie’s Media Center, BlogMV, Twitter and Facebook pages to fill his own Facebook and Twitter accounts. He used the social media platforms to first, build relationships, which eventually lead to prospects and new enrollees, including most of his leaders in his international business.
“If you are not using these tools, you are missing out,” said Calvin.
And his goal moving forward is to share his lessons learned, as well as, reignite the US market and recreate the excitement felt at the beginning of the MonaVie birth with the help of Senior Vice President Jeff Graham.
Oh, and to secure his Black Diamond status and beyond month after month.
“I had to rebuild over 135,000 points and I did it and that means anyone can bounce back from less – you just have to be willing to go back to work,” said Calvin. “I am proof that success can be achieved over and over again.”
