MonaVie Bronze Executive Launches Financial Book for Women; Dedicates Proceeds to MORE Project

 

MonaVie Bronze Executive Ruth Bayang Stoffel is not your typical MonaVie distributor, unless winning an Emmy Award is typical. The Malaysian born, former television producer in Seattle has just written a book for women entitled “Free at 40” that is designed to “empower women to control their own destiny and achieve financial freedom.”

“I wrote the book because I am an introverted person, but I am passionate about people getting smart about their money and their financial future. Writing a book seemed like a non-intrusive way to get that message across.”

Stoffel heard about MonaVie through fellow students in a real estate coaching program, but wasn’t interested in the opportunity until she found out one of the coaches she respected and admired was in the business. At that time, she had no idea how joining MonaVie would influence her life for good.

“MonaVie has made me be a more positive person. I smile more and I'm a more polite driver since a decal is on my car! Best of all, MonaVie reunited me with my daughter who was missing from my life for 12 years. An old college friend, who I reconnected with and was talking to about MonaVie, found my daughter on Facebook.”

And while writing a book is noteworthy, Stoffel is also taking it a step further by donating proceeds to The MORE Project.

“I am so grateful that MonaVie brought my daughter back into my life. I wanted to do something for MonaVie via The MORE Project where it would be a win-win situation for both parties. I'd like to up the ante too. I will give 100 percent of proceeds to The MORE Project for sales on June 10, 2011, to coincide with the MonaVie Imagine International Convention and 30 percent will still go to The MORE Project from now until June 30.”

For those interested in buying the book or ebook can do so at Amazon.com or you can buy a hard copy of the book. You can also follow Ruth on Twitter at or her website, www.freeat40.com.

MonaVie Senior Vice President Jeff recently got his hands on a new iPad 2 and you know what that means: 1. His original iPad is accumulating dust and... 2. This has the makings of another MonaVie giveaway!

Quite possibly the most peculiar giveaway we've offered, but thanks to Jeff Graham and his generosity, he wanted to provide MonaVie distributors the chance to provide a good home for one of his (previously) cherished possessions. It comes with a handy carrying case and all the cords, but Jeff had to take his awesome apps with him! (Updated) We'll also throw in a handy, dandy thumb drive that contains MonaVie videos and presentations to help grow your business!

To enter, simply post a comment below on BlogMV by end of day Wednesday, May 18 with a creative finish to the sentence, "I want Jeff Graham's iPad because_____." (We're looking for creativity here folks!)

The winner will be announced on Thursday.

So let's see how creative you can get!*

 

*(within the bounds of common decency of course)

How excited are you for all the amazing happenings soon to be happening at this year’s MonaVie !magine Convention in Salt Lake City, June 9-11?

Now you’re most likely wondering, what said somethin' will be...

Well, it’s a secret…okay, I’ll give you a visual hint in the form of a MonaVie super silver goody bag image:

Fear and Doubt: Life's Biggest Happiness Robbers

Fear and doubt…two of this life’s biggest happiness robbers, according to Marci Shimoff, keynote speaker, New York Times bestselling author and featured teacher in the film and book, The Secret.

Seth Godin said, “When in doubt, look for fear. That’s almost always the source of your doubt.”

When it comes to business, and especially when business is so connected to life, family and friends, which is most often the case in the network-marketing realm, fear and doubt can wreak havoc on all of the above.

So, what do you do with said fear and doubt as they inevitably creep into your life, your business building efforts and more?

A popular knee-jerk reaction is to mask the fear and doubt with faux confidence, usually coming across as arrogance or defensiveness. Another option is to busy one’s self with other tasks and doings and avoid the fear and doubt altogether. While these may offer short-term relief, are they not ways to simply suppress negative feelings until they inevitably resurface and bowl us over in the long run?

Let’s explore some other options…

Embrace the power of positive thinking and habituate ways of being that entice happiness, confidence, peace of mind and success. Norman Vincent Peale, minister and author, penned the book The Power of Positive Thinking that speaks of having faith in oneself and eliminating the most devastating handicap – self doubt, from your life, through visualization, prayerful exercises and positive reinforcements.

Turn to meditation, a deep state of relaxation and according to the Mayo Clinic, during which “you focus your attention and eliminate the stream of jumbled thoughts that may be crowding your mind and causing stress.”

Other forms of mediation include, but are certainly not limited to, yoga, tai chi, qigong and mantras, repeating a calming word or phrase to realign your focus and eliminate harmful distractions throughout your day.

You may also consider exercise, dance, music or any number of fun-filled activities your fear and doubt dissolvers of choice.

And still yet, for others, sometimes, and often times while in the moment when fear and doubt seem to rear their ugly heads, it’s as simple as seeing through the negative emotions to find the peace and courage that you already are.

What is your preferred means to overcoming fear and doubt in your life?
