Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Matt and Shari McCants
Congratulations to Matt and Shari McCants from Urbandale, Iowa, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…
"When a friend called me three and a half years ago and asked me to check out this product and opportunity, I never knew I would find my passion and purpose in life in a bottle of juice. My husband thought I was crazy. He did succumb quickly and tried the juice after about 60 days. Then, he said 'Get it paid for!' I said, 'You got it baby!'
"My upline hosted a small contest to see who could sponsor the most people before a big tasting. I won by sponsoring eight people in a week. Matt then got to spend some one-on-one time with Corbin Roush who answered 1,000 questions in 45 minutes. Matt jumped on board. Matt had been suggesting (telling) me that I needed a job once the kids started elementary school. That was not in the cards, as I do not want to be the two-income-never-at-home family. I want to put my kids on the bus in the morning and greet them after school. I want to be able to go to their extra activities. MonaVie has allowed me to do this!
"The reason we love MonaVie is twofold: First, we have met so many great friends and likeminded people that have allowed us to form great relationships. Second, we love that the products and business model is built around helping people with health and wellness physically, financially, and spiritually. This is what MonaVie is all about to us.
"The MonaVie business for us has been up and down over the past couple of years. Customers come and go, or as we say, 'Some will; some won't. Oh well, some will!' This past summer, my husband was put in a position to look for another a job after 17 years with a company. Shortly thereafter, I lost my father quite quickly to melanoma. This meant that we had to divert our focus from MonaVie and place it on my mom, my brothers, and the family farm.
"With all of these changes in short order, it seemed like life was out to get us. Once we had the opportunity to look back and assess the situation, we realized that God was with us all the while. Matt lost his job, but that just freed his time for the more important family obligations that we were confronted with. I had a MonaVie business that kept working without me. That is the beauty of this business. As summer faded, Matt started a new full-time job. Family obligations began to settle. Kids went back to school. And, we turned back to our MonaVie business. Some things happen according to God's plan, not ours. Our advice for anyone taking this journey is don't quit!
"When we heard of the Cruise for Gold, we began to focus on the business to again achieve the rank of Gold. I knew we had to do it. In the middle of all the summer chaos was our 10th anniversary, and we were not able to take a trip. This was the perfect answer: a MonaVie cruise paid for by our work together on a tight budget.
"In Iowa, we are all about team. Our upline and downline have our back, and they are the reason we achieved this rank. We have a very special team. We all work well together. We love the business opportunity of MonaVie. We love helping people find their dreams and achieving their goals. We are looking forward to meeting more people on the cruise and learning from the best in the industry. We are so excited about MonaVie 2.0. We are ready to take our business to the next level and achieve our dreams. We are Matt and Shari McCants, and we are MonaVie!"
