Update: Top Two California State Champion Gymnasts Excel with MonaVie

Last month, we learned about Averi Doktorczyk's gymnastics dreams. We are very pleased to report that Averi finished second all around with a new personal-best score of 38.325 at the 2011 California State Championships, in San Diego, November 19–20.

"God has no doubt blessed Averi with talent," Averi's mother, Jolene Doktorczyk says, "But more importantly, he has blessed her with work ethic, perseverance and a joy in recognizing excellence in others. It is with tremendous pride and honor that our family says, 'We are MonaVie!'"

We're also thrilled to announce that joining Averi on the winner's podium was No. 1 Overall Champion Margaret Kwok, whose parents are Ruby Executives Shannon and Whitney Kwok. Margaret, who trains at Kips Gymnastics in Anaheim Hills, California, earned the highest score out of a total of 804 competitors. Her parents attribute much of Margaret's performance, strength, and focus to her nutrition program, which includes MonaVie (M)mūn and MonaVie RVL.

"Margaret's success has come from sacrifices that very few nine year olds—or individuals, for that matter—are willing to make," Whitney said. "She truly has the heart of a champion."

Congratulations, Averi and Margaret!

New Gold Executives—Leslie and David Faris

Congratulations to Leslie and David Faris from Keller, Texas, on achieving the rank of Gold Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone…

"What an amazing opportunity we have been given by MonaVie! Not only are we thrilled to have time to be together on a cruise, we are also very excited to get the opportunity to learn from the best leaders. We also cannot wait to be surrounded by like-minded people who see the vision of becoming healthy and financially free through MonaVie. What a true blessing and amazing gift! Thank you, MonaVie, for allowing us this opportunity!

"Believe it or not, October 15, 2011, was our first tasting party. That week ignited a fire under us that had long been burned out. With a lot of effort, passion, drive, and love for the product, we made it to Gold Executive. With a little effort and determination, you too can do this!

"We have heard over and over how busy everyone is, and believe us when we say we are no stranger to busy. David is a pilot whose job takes him away from home 3–4 days per week. I am a psychologist with a full-time practice. We have three young boys going in three different directions, 100 miles per hour. We know busy! It seems to us that if 'busy' is the excuse, then it is the perfect reason to become a distributor! With financial freedom comes time. We all want to have more quality time with those we love. Don't let 'I'm too busy' be your excuse; make it your reason!

"We look forward to pressing ahead to the next goal, and we want to take those we care about and love with us. We have amazing upline support, and we have to say Byron Moles is absolutely incredible! He is so very inspirational, motivational, and supportive. He really is the reason we are in this spot. Tom Faris is also just plain great! He gave us that push to get started, even after listening to every excuse I could throw at him. We have been blessed with amazing people on our team, upline and downline, and we are committed to helping everyone succeed!

"It is also fun to have friends to do this with. Marydawn Hatch (soon to be Gold) and I went to high school together many years ago and are now working together daily to grow our team. We share our joys, victories, and struggles on a daily basis; and, at the end of the day, we laugh together and keep each other motivated. Every morning we wake up and ask each other, 'Whose life are you going to help change for the better today?' Having great friends to share this journey with makes it all worthwhile.

"We are so very excited about this amazing product, sharing it with others, and watching their lives improve. What a tremendous gift!"

MonaVie Business Intelligence - The Coming Jobs War

MonaVie Business Intelligence (MBI)—your source for relevant and timely information that supports your MonaVie business.

The Coming Jobs War
In his book, The Coming Jobs War, Jim Clifton of the Gallup organization passionately describes what he believes would “fix the world.”

“If you were to ask me, from all the world polling Gallup has done for more than 75 years, what would fix the world—what would suddenly create worldwide peace, global wellbeing, and the next extraordinary advancements in human development—I would say the immediate appearance of 1.8 billion jobs. Nothing would change the current state of humankind more.”*

MonaVie’s “1 Billion” Statement in USA Today

MonaVie has generated national attention with its full-page statement in USA Today:


1,000,000,000 people globally will never be employed. The combined unemployment and underemployment in the U.S. alone translates into one in five people either working part-time or not at all. Corporations and governments around the world cannot create enough jobs for people who need them to help overcome the hopelessness and poverty caused by a growing economic epidemic.

Our global community faces monumental issues, including a lack of food, potable water, natural resources, and other basic necessities of life. These issues, combined with hopelessness and poverty, create volatile environments that breed unrest, violence, and instability around the world.

The direct selling industry now employs over 75,000,000 people throughout the world and has become a focal point to help solve the chronic employment issues our world faces. In fact, the only business that truly scales enough to have an impact on millions of people’s lives is direct selling.

As an industry leader, MonaVie is compelled to help the world better understand direct selling and what a good opportunity it is for people from every walk of life. Therefore, MonaVie has taken the lead in partnering with influential organizations that are helping the industry change people’s lives. Our goal at MonaVie is to help people live a more meaningful life.

A More Meaningful Life: Kyle Kilman Loses 264 Pounds and Counting on MonaVie RVL!

An injury at the workplace resulted in the removal of Kyle Kilman's right fibula, and a consequent post-op infection led to him developing lymphedema in both thighs. Over the ensuing months, Kyle more than doubled in weight and suffered a bout with depression. Then, a friend introduced him to MonaVie RVL. Here's what Kyle had to say about his journey…

"At the time of my injury, I was 260 pounds. The complications of my surgeries made me home- and wheelchair-bound, and nothing I was used to doing was any longer possible. Everything I had passion for in life was no longer possible. It's sad to say but I was just waiting to die.

"When I got my hands on MonaVie RVL, I followed the program with exactness. To my surprise, I have had amazing results! I find the shakes and snacks bars to be very enjoyable and great tasting. I am losing weight, and I'm able to keep it off. I currently weigh 302 pounds and getting closer and closer to my goal weight of 248 pounds.

"The MonaVie RVL program has not been difficult at all. You will hit some plateaus, but don't get discouraged. Just stick to the program and you will soon find great success. When I wake up in the morning, I have a cup of coffee, a bottle of water, four ounces of MonaVie Active, a MonaVie RVL Dietary Supplement, and then a delicious MonaVie RVL shake.

"At noon, I have half a snack bar, a bottle of water, another supplement, and another RVL shake. Throughout the afternoon, I drink at least six bottles of water, four ounces of MonaVie Active, and the other half of my snack bar. For dinner, I have a healthy meal with four ounces of MonaVie Active and more water. Since May 1, 2011, I have lost 264 pounds!

"As I mentioned before, at my highest weight and depression I could no longer pursue my passions in life. Now, I am able to walk again and go fishing in Alaska. This fall, I went elk hunting and was able to walk more in eight days than I have in a very long time. MonaVie RVL has given me a purpose to live and the ability to enjoy my life again.

"I encourage others who are battling with their weight to never, never give up. If I can change even one person's life, I would consider that a success. Remember, MonaVie RVL is not a diet. Diets do not work. MonaVie RVL is a life-changing program, and it works! If anyone out there needs encouragement or has questions, I will try and make myself available."

A More Meaningful Life: Kirstin Sheppard Finds Freedom and Passion with MonaVie RVL

Only 22 years old, Kirstin Sheppard has struggled with her weight her entire life. She's tried dropping the extra pounds in a variety of ways since junior high school, but nothing has worked…until now! Here's what Kirstin had to say about her journey…

"There are many reasons for my weight issues. Family stress has been one of the major contributors. My parents divorced when I was very young, and it was definitely hard on me to constantly go back and forth between houses. I would turn to food for every emotion, especially when I was stressed, upset, or even bored. Food became my constant comfort and friend.

"Being morbidly obese has been extremely difficult. It's something no young person should ever have to deal with. It crushes you. When I needed to fly to visit family, I had to ask for a seatbelt extender because the normal seatbelt wouldn't reach across my belly! It was humiliating and heart breaking. It's also a horrible feeling to go shopping with friends and have to go to a different store because I'm a lot bigger. I would watch them try on clothes and feel like crying every time they tried on something that I would love to wear but couldn't because of my size.

"One of the most embarrassing moments of my life was when I went to a local fair with all of my friends. They wanted to go on a ride, and I was too big to fit in the seat. The ride operator tried three times to get the harness to close over me, but it wouldn't. It was so embarrassing when I had to walk off the ride while everyone was watching and laughing. Taking pictures is another nightmare. I've never liked the way my body looked, so I would always take the picture myself because I could angle the camera to make myself look better.

"MonaVie RVL is giving me the life that I've never had! I feel like it's a huge blessing from God. He put me in the right place at the right time to meet my sponsor and open me up to this amazing opportunity. It's truly been life changing.

"MonaVie RVL fits into my lifestyle so well. I follow the program as laid out by MonaVie. I have a shake in the morning, and I have my snack bar and supplement two and a half hours later. At lunch, I have my second shake and another snack bar and supplement two and a half hours later. Three hours after that, I have dinner, which usually consists of a salad or chicken and veggies.

"Now I've kicked it up a notch by adding a lot more water and exercise to my program, and I'm seeing even better results! I exercise one hour in the morning and one hour after dinner. I thought it would be difficult not being able to eat the things I wanted when I wanted; however, I don't have those cravings with MonaVie RVL. I've discovered through this process that I would rather eat healthier and live a longer, happier life.

"I began RVL on August 1, 2011, and I've already lost 34 pounds! That is the most weight I have ever slimmed down in my life! MonaVie RVL is a simple and easy program to follow. It's a no-brainer! I feel confident throughout the day because I know what I'm going to eat, and it's very healthy and nutritious.

"My goal is to lose another 156 pounds. With MonaVie RVL, that doesn't seem so far away! I have a whole bucket list of things that I want to do when I get to my goal weight, including skydiving, going on a cruise, and going on every rollercoaster (well, most of them) in California. I am also going to go on a shopping spree and buy a whole new wardrobe. By the 2012 Convention of the Americas in St. Louis, you will see an all-new Kirstin, and I can't wait!

"MonaVie has truly given me a more meaningful life in so many ways. I had a good life before because of God, and I believe that God has led me to this wonderful company. I believe I will finally be able to live to my fullest potential, physically and financially, because of MonaVie. I currently have to work two jobs, and it still isn't enough for me to become self-sufficient. Because of MonaVie, I now have the keys to my financial freedom.

"My goal is to become a Royal Black Diamond and above! I want to travel all over the world to help as many people as I can; this is my passion! Thank you, MonaVie, for giving me this chance to save, to change, and to live a more meaningful life!"
