Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Leonie LaPoint

Congratulations to Leonie LaPoint from Novato, California, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here’s what she had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"It means so much for me to go on the Cruise for Gold trip. It is a great reward for all the hard work my team and I have put in. It has taught me how important it is to set goals and how focusing your mind on your goal, together with believing that it is possible, creates a tremendous positive synergy! It also helps to have a supportive upline. I could not have done it without my mentors Jill Paul and Kathleen Deggelman. These girls rock!

"Although my kids aren’t going with me on the cruise, they are very excited that I qualified. They helped me in many ways by being a team at home helping me with chores around the house. My daughter wrote a note saying, ‘Mom, you can go Gold!’

"I really took advantage of the RVL promos. I made packets with the chocolate and vanilla samples along with a cute rhyme on them, handed them out to people, and followed it up with many, many phone calls. December was a perfect month with all the holiday parties and school events. I also approached people suggesting they buy juice as a holiday gift of health for their loved ones. And, I strategized with my team.

"I really focused on a lot of activity in a short period of time. It was the busiest time of the year since I qualified the two weeks prior to Christmas. I am a single, working mom. I’m not even sure how I got my Christmas cards out, but somehow it all worked out and Christmas morning all the gifts were wrapped neatly under the tree. My best gift ever was the cruise!

"I want for my team to set their goals to go Gold and believe it can happen. I always say, ‘you don’t have to know how; just focus on the activity and work like you’ve already achieved it. The results will follow.’ The cruise is a huge incentive to make things happen. It pushes you out of your comfort zone and motivates you to make those extra phone calls you’ve been putting off. It’s now or never! Think of who you’d like to see with you on the cruise and help them get there as well.

"I plan to cast a vision for my team, help them in strategizing to reach their goals, and teach them to help others on the team so that they can get where they want to go. One of the best things for me was asking my team member, Lisa, to join me on the cruise. She has been an integral part of my business and so deserves the reward.

"I look forward to being with fellow Gold qualifiers and finding out new ideas about how they achieved their goals. I cannot wait to pick the brain of Mark Macdonald about the RVL products and the 90-day RVLution, to hang out with Jeff Graham, and to learn about new MonaVie MX and the MonaVie Elements. I also look forward to getting to know Jeff Cohen, and I can’t wait to see what kind of weird outfits Henry Marsh will appear in on the cruise! Sunshine, relaxation, and lots of fun with my mentor Jill, her guest, and Lisa—thank you MonaVie!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Pat and Svetlana Corrigan

Congratulations to Pat and Svetlana Corrigan from Silver Spring, Maryland, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here’s what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"Our MonaVie story started when a friend brought what we thought was a wine bottle to Lana’s birthday party. Lana started with MonaVie Pulse and experienced benefits within months. We ordered MonaVie RVL as soon as it became available. Both of us had very good results, losing 15 pounds and 22 pounds and keeping it off for almost a year now.

"We are in our mid-40s and have two young children. We also have a history of significant health issues in our families. We want to be able to go to our kids’ weddings and spend time with our grandchildren. Staying healthy for as long as possible with MonaVie products became one of our priorities. We owe it to our children.

"After promoting MonaVie for two years, we wondered why we weren’t having great business results like so many other people. We believed in the product and the business model. We made some money, attended events, and met people who made it big in MonaVie. Listening to Randy Schroeder one day, it hit me: ‘do you believe you can do it?’ There it was! It turned out we had to work on ourselves.

"We discovered three ‘musts:’ 1. We must set a goal and a date for our goal. Otherwise, it becomes some event in the future that never comes. We had to make all our calls by December 23 (the deadline for the cruise qualification). There was no turning back or postponing. Every day, we made at least five calls and met with at least one person. 2. We must develop the knowledge of what we really want and make it so real and tangible. With the cruise as our prize, we could feel the warm sun, hear the sound of the ocean, and almost taste the salty water. 3. We must find an active upline, connect with them, and tell them our goals.

"We would not have done it without our active upline, Diamond Executives Valentina and Paul Meehan. We’d make an initial call, and they would follow up with a call or set a meeting. One day during our second week of qualification, Lana texted Valentina: ‘I am so frustrated. Made 14 calls (some were new prospects, others were follow-ups), and nobody picked up the phone or called back!’ It was a really bad day for morale. But, Valentina was able to center Lana on the activity itself—not on the immediate result.

"Qualifying for Gold Executive and the Cruise for Gold gives us a sense of accomplishment and belief in ourselves. It is also a great rehearsal for what it takes to go to the next level. We’ll see you at Diamond Destination!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Traci and Frankie Pretzel

Congratulations to Traci and Frankie Pretzel from New Lenox, Illinois, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here’s what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"As we keep telling our friends and family every time we see them, we have never been more excited about anything. We truly feel so blessed that MonaVie has come into our lives. It has allowed us to put the right nutrition in our bodies and help others do the same. We have reconnected with old friends and made so many new ones along the way. It has been an incredible journey, and we are so excited about what is still to come.

"We knew coming into this that we were not going to ‘see how it goes,’ but rather give it everything we have. We immediately plugged in to our upline. We would not have had half of the success that we have had without our upline, Denise Otway, Dr. Eric Klein, Dr. Eric Kosel, Jeff Delaney, and Jerry Dowd. We leaned on them a lot at first, and they were always willing to help.

"Our advice for others looking to qualify for the next Cruise for Gold is to have faith. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen. Faith will move mountains and create large organizations. Learn to see it. Before you see it, believe what you have asked for; and, then just trust in the Lord for the desired results. You do your part, and He’ll do his.

"Going on this cruise means so much to us. We know how important it is in this business to surround yourselves with positive, likeminded people. We are looking forward to coming back charged up and ready to help our downline win the next one. We are also planning on having a little fun too!"

Congratulations to Alvin and Annie Chau from Pleasanton, California, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here’s what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"Qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip gives us a feeling of success of reaching to a different arena, which we have been longing for with MonaVie.

"We are persistent in promoting the fruitfulness of MonaVie products, and we share the products with enthusiasm and excitement. Be consistent and enthusiastic. And, be honest about the products.

"We are looking forward to relaxing and meeting the other qualifiers."

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Frank and Helen Lee

Congratulations to Frank and Helen Lee from Alameda, California, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here’s what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"My friend, Annie Chau, offered me a glass of MonaVie two years ago. I began to drink on a daily basis. I loved the taste and noticed a significant change in my health in less than three months. Annie became my sponsor.

"I introduced this super juice to my friends while vacationing in Hong Kong. They all like this wonderful product. Thanks to my sponsor and upline, Hawaii Blue Diamond Executive Mr. Mak, who gave me lots of positive support. My success truly comes from their help. Also, my wife Helen gives me lots of positive support.

"This year, we will carry on and work harder to get to the next level."

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Lynn and Don Lindberg

Congratulations to Lynn and Don Lindberg from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"It's a great accomplishment to qualify for the Cruise for Gold trip. We are proud to be able to help others with their health needs and financial needs.

"We have found success by keeping in contact with our upline. Our vehicle and clothing are branded daily. We are products of the products. Between the two of us, we have lost 60 pounds. We posted before and after pictures on Facebook and in emails, and people approach us to know how we lost the weight. We used the Holiday Gift Packs and RVL Holiday Specials to promote the juices and nutritional shakes.

"I increased my time doing the business and never let the Christmas season interfere, including thinking that people couldn't afford to buy the products during this time of the year. People need MonaVie year round. This helped me to reach Gold two weeks before Christmas! Believe in yourself, and never give up. Never let a 'no' stop you.

"We look forward to bringing back teaching and training from the cruise to our team. We encourage all of them to go to the big events, listen to conference calls, do home tastings weekly, get branded, and keep connected with us, our upline, and MonaVie."

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Mike and Shelley Robins

Congratulations to Mike and Shelley Robins from Reno, Nevada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here’s what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

“We are so excited to experience new places and new things on this cruise. But, what we are most excited about is getting to enjoy it with those on our team who have worked so hard to be there. We are all excited to spend time with the leaders who will be educating us on how to be more successful in this business and in life.

“If you want to find success, you need to have all-out-massive action. Call, call, call! We do one-on-ones, three-way calls, and Skype. We also promoted the RVL specials big time and raised the excitement level in our conversations. Most of all, we acted with urgency, thought abundantly, and prayed constantly!

“We got together with the leaders of our team and looked at each person’s AutoShip. We took the best two weeks possible for each couple that would allow them to qualify for Gold. Then, on those particular weeks, we all got together and made calls, held meetings, and placed orders—whatever we could do to help that couple qualify for that week and the consecutive week. By doing that, we created six new Golds in five weeks.

“There were a lot of tears shed—first from pressure, then excitement—when we achieved the goal at the last moment. Don’t give up! We had four Golds qualify in the last 10 minutes before the deadline. This experience has been amazing! We have such a beautiful family of friends created by this MonaVie journey. I would pick each one of them to be in my life boat because I know how much they care. We are looking forward to being with our team that sacrificed so much for each other to be able to share this experience together.”

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Tanya and Dewey McCrary-Singh

Congratulations to Tanya and Dewey McCrary-Singh from Canmore, Alberta, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here’s what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

“Although Dewey was a total skeptic when I joined MonaVie, he always supported me in my business. Now, we are so excited to qualify for Cruise for Gold. Initially, we knew a few members of our team were very well positioned to go on the cruise, and we thought we’d focus on helping them. As the deadline got closer we said, ‘let’s go for it,’ and we knew what we had to do to make it happen; and, our team came through. With a 2- and 3-year-old only 14 months apart, life is busy. The cruise is going to be a great break for us, and the kids will have fun with their grandma while we’re away.

“It was pretty intense when we first embarked on attempting for the Cruise for Gold. Our fearless leader, Blue Diamond Joe Wack, formulated a week-by-week format to follow for the 12 weeks leading up to December 23. We worked as closely as we could with our team members who wanted to seriously try for the cruise to give them every opportunity to qualify.

“Thank goodness for our fabulous upline Sherry and Al Huva and Gina and Steve Merritt. They always seem to come and help just when we need it most. ‘Timing is everything.’ Sending Rex Crain and Matt and Kim Curtis in November, along with a little promo we ran, helped us get our team working, planning, and taking actions together. Everyone was working so well together, we kind of felt obligated to not only have our team members qualify for the cruise; we felt we had to be on the cruise, and a sudden urgency that we hadn’t experienced before took hold of us. Our good friends, Ven Cote, Dale St. Amand, and Hubert Lau (our sponsor), helped in a big way too. You’ve got to be willing to accept the help from the good people around you.

“You need to believe you can do it. Imagine you’re already there. Then, take all the actions you possibly can, supporting your team’s efforts and at the same time remaining focused on your own stepping stones, milestones, and targets.

“In 2012, we’ve instituted ‘The Power of 2’ as our team’s theme. By helping everyone on our team go Star and everyone on their teams go Star, and by becoming consistent Star makers, we expect to have several of our team on the next cruise!

“It’s always been a dream to go to the Bahamas, but we’ve always traveled for more practical reasons (e.g., for business or to visit family). On this trip we get to do some business, learn from the best in this industry, and enjoy and get to know our MonaVie family a little better. We can’t wait!”

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Ryan and Jolene Doktorczyk

Congratulations to Ryan and Jolene Doktorczyk from Murrieta, California, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here’s what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

“Qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip is both exciting and an incredible honor. Of course, we are excited to be treated to such an extravagant reward simply for building our MonaVie business, which we would be doing anyway. We are looking forward to the cruise both from the free vacation standpoint and even more so because we will be there with so many other phenomenal people from our MonaVie family!

“We took a look at our business and asked ourselves who we could focus on getting on the cruise with us. We took the time to help them map their own course to success, and we ran together toward the boat! We did as much sponsoring as we could, positioning the new people in depth where they would get the benefit of being in the midst of all the action, and where our leaders would be blessed from the added volume flowing up through their businesses.

“We called folks in our PEAR who had gone inactive and shared the MonaVie Perks program, which led some of them to reactivating. Also, we contacted folks who had some success in the past but let life get in the way and shared the Cruise for Gold. A free cruise is very motivating!

“Make the decision that you will be on the next trip. From there, identify a teammate or two, put the blinders on, and share MonaVie with the world. This business is all about focusing on others. Teach people to become Stars and Star makers. People are actively looking; it’s our job to spread the good news of hope and prosperity!

“In addition to spending time with MonaVie’s incredible leadership and getting certified on the MVP system, the thing we most look forward to is hanging out with so many of our team members! They have worked hard, and many of them have never had a ‘real’ vacation. The fact that it’s free makes it so much sweeter!”
