Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Michele Yakashiro

Congratulations to Michele Yakashiro from New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what she had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"I joined MonaVie almost four years ago thanks to my mom, Mandy. My journey started when I had significant health issues in November of 2007. My wise mom offered me the juice knowing the importance of antioxidants, and I drank MonaVie like any good daughter would. MonaVie represented hope during that frightening time. I was unaware of the world-class business opportunity offered by MonaVie until I dropped in on a home presentation at my parents' home.

"During that presentation my mom's long-time friend, Jan Prpich, explained the business. Needless to say I was excited then, and I am even more excited now! Fast forward four years, and MonaVie has only added to (and never taken away from) the compensation plan. The Cruise for Gold proves this. The generosity that MonaVie shows its distributors amazes me!

"I've been blessed with a dynamic team of leaders who are continually developing themselves and others around them. I love, appreciate, and respect every one of them. I would not be where I am in the business or the person I am without you all! I also have an amazing upline mentor, Jan Prpich, who consistently pours her wisdom and love into our team. I thank God for them every day.

"Since MonaVie has been in my life for almost four years now, I've begun to compare my journey to my life as a varsity athlete. I started university excited to get onto the soccer field and make some noise. Similarly, with MonaVie I was eager to get my business going. At the age of 21 and within my first year in the business, I achieved the rank of Gold Executive. However, I soon realized that there were other players who had been in the game longer and who had developed the habits, characteristics, and skills that led to their continued success. During my first and second year of university, I spent a lot of time on the bench—a place no one wants to be. Inevitably, my ego took a hit.

"Similarly, I have been at Gold Executive for three years. During that time on the bench, I had two choices to make: throw in the towel or get to work. Some of you might be sitting on the bench in the game of MonaVie watching your teammates playing on the field, achieving goals, and advancing in rank. While you are happy for them, you need to get in the game! You need to be making the calls. You need to be supporting your team. You need to plan one-on-ones. You need to be following up. After I started doing the activities to increase my soccer skills, I became a starting player in my final years at university.

"The beauty of community commerce is that you have no choice but to develop yourself. Don't quit and sell yourself short of who you can become! My hope and prayer is that you make a decision in your business—whether it's to begin and maintain a certain activity, advance in rank, or donate to the MORE Project! I decided that the Cruise for Gold ship wasn't leaving without me, and I'm so thankful I followed through! Do not quit on yourself. You deserve the very best, and MonaVie is ready and willing to provide!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Rachel and Tom Alderson

Congratulations to Rachel and Tom Alderson from Dilworth, Minnesota, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here’s what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

“MonaVie has been a gift that I least expected, and it started a snowball effect of receiving and giving! The day I was introduced to MonaVie was one of the most stressful days of my career because I was ending a business relationship. As that business relationship was ending, Angela Bruer-Balouch came into my business offering me a new relationship—MonaVie. You know the saying, ‘when God closes a door, he opens another’? Well in this case, it was a garage door!

“MonaVie was a gift of health that my clients at my massage practice, Revive Professional Massage Therapy Clinic, were asking for. It was one that I was also looking for, for myself and my family. I was an overweight, drained, and busy mother of three beautiful little boys. I ordered my product and scheduled my personal tasting party. I invited all of my 13 staff members and nine of my best girlfriends. That night, I signed up six people; and, several more signed up in the coming days. Because of the gift of MonaVie, I was able to give amazing things to my friends and family, including weight loss, improved health, and increases in finances. To be a small part of the positive domino effect that is MonaVie has been such a blessing to me and my family.

“It was at a tasting party that I received the biggest gift of my life: I received a message offering me the opportunity to adopt a little girl. You see, my husband and I have had adoption in our hearts for years and had always thought this would be a method in which we would grow our family. But, many life circumstances made us think it would never happen; we truly felt that God had closed the door on adoption several months prior to this call. And, then another ‘garage door’ was opened. Our daughter Selah (which means to pause, reflect, and give thanks) is the epitome of a gift. We feel honored to be her parents. The gifts continue.

“We are grateful to MonaVie and the support of the people on our team. We are happy to share in giving of health and opportunity for wealth. But, we are mostly grateful that our four children now know two healthier parents. I have lost 23 pounds and Tom has lost 15 pounds using the MonaVie RVL system. We have more energy to pour into our children, and they are healthier as well. The gift of healthy children is exponential!

“Tom and I are beyond excited to be on the Cruise for Gold. We have not been on vacation since our honeymoon 13 years ago. An all-expense-paid tropical vacation for two busy parents is a big motivator! The gift of the cruise is awesome! The biggest thing I have learned since being on our MonaVie adventure is that a gift is treasure if you give it away. So, drink it and share it, and you will feel it!”

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Denton and Tina Hackney

Congratulations to Denton and Tina Hackney from Strathroy, Ontario, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"Our lives have been forever changed since being introduced to MonaVie a year and a half ago. I have always been into my health and wanted to make sure my family was getting the nutrition they needed. My husband has always been an entrepreneur, taking on jobs in addition to his full-time job for extra money. MonaVie is the answer to what we've been looking for; it's the complete package!

"We now have something we can both be passionate about. We love nothing more than helping others achieve their dreams and goals, as well as our own. Our journey to Gold has been an adventure! Not only did we achieve Gold but we also earned a cruise, one of many free trips MonaVie has to offer. We are truly blessed to be a part of an amazing company where everyone is so positive and striving for the same goal.

"We have the most supportive team anyone could ever ask for. We would like to thank Mike and Kelly-Sue McCormick for introducing us to the MonaVie opportunity. Jan Prpich, our Black Diamond upline, has been a true inspiration. Words cannot explain how thankful we are to know such an amazing woman. Also, if it weren't for MonaVie we would have never been introduced to our best friends, Dave and Jen Green. They are great leaders, and we are very thankful to have them on our team.

"Here's to keeping it simple!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Ken Hargrove

Congratulations to Ken Hargrove from Austin, Texas, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what he had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"When I experienced the health benefits of MonaVie Active for myself, I was not only hooked but excited to share the products with others. MonaVie creates state-of-the-art products that do what they are intended to do, which allows distributors to share with confidence.

"I am just one person in a very well organized and incredible system. My sponsors, Doug and Pattie McGuinn, are just amazing; and, my team is the fastest-growing team in Texas. They are leaders who have come to realize that leaders are readers, and it is paying huge dividends.

"I believe that I will have a worldwide organization that will bless people financially and, more importantly, spiritually and nutritionally. This organization will give me the opportunity to travel all over the world and develop deep and long-lasting friendships. Going on the cruise is just an example. It has been 24 years since my last cruise, and I doubt that I would be taking a cruise in the near future if it were not for this opportunity.

"Do something every day and zero in on your goal. Counsel daily, read daily, help your downline rank advance, attend all functions, and work. There is no secret to it. I qualified for the cruise by increasing my daily activity and focusing on bringing in quality distributors.

"The most important thing a distributor can do for his or her business is to realize you fail your way to success. This business is about working as smart as you can, which means following the proven system and continually asking yourself, 'If I had to do it all over again, what would I do differently?' Sometimes it's nothing; for me, it's, 'Ah…won't do that again!' or 'Should have done that and will do that next time.' It also means understanding the nature of planting seeds and the process that the seeds go through.

"Reach out and meet people at their needs. They have to want it more than their upline wants it for them; but, they have to know that you're willing to do whatever it takes to lock arms and win.

"On the cruise, I'm looking forward to getting some rest, sun (in January!), food, and the opportunity to learn from the best leadership in the industry!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Shannon and Whitney Kwok

Congratulations to Shannon and Whitney Kwok from Yorba Linda, California, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"We were approached by our friends Jan and Raelene Hayball (Emerald Executives). We had some prior experience with networking, but we were looking for a better fit for our lifestyle and financial goals. We were also looking for an opportunity that would benefit those that were close to us. Once we tried the product and went to a corporate event, we were hooked!

"The products are in a class by themselves. And, the opportunity keeps getting better (i.e., RVL, 1, 2 Free!, MonaVie Perks, MVP). Since we've been in MonaVie, we've been approached by many leaders from other companies. Some claimed to have a better product. Some claimed to have better compensation. Some claimed to have a better leadership team. And, some claimed to have better timing for what they were marketing. None had a cause, and none had all five!

"We've both worked for the government (Whitney as a police officer and Shannon as a public school teacher). Whitney has also been successful in corporate America. However, none of these career paths have brought our family together to share common goals. And, none of these career paths have surrounded us with the quality of people this business has. Our children enjoy the products, and they are our best cheerleaders! They are intent on going to Hawaii in 2012!

"It's nice to have our hard work, consistency, and sacrifice pay off. Having our kids watch mom and dad work together is very important to us. Most kids watch their parents live half their lives in different worlds. It's also shown our kids that this business has rewards and recognition.

"We are always focused on leading, not managing, our organization. This means sharing the product and opportunity more often and more consistently than anyone else in our group. We were taught not to worry what our group is or isn't doing, but to worry about what we're doing. To us, this means a lot of activity, growing personally, and having fun!

"The biggest blessing of Cruise for Gold is that it forced us to be results oriented. We have always had a great work ethic, but being busy and being productive are two different things. We began paying more attention to who we needed to help and what activities produce results. We also focused on the bottom of our personal enrollment tree, and results came quickly!

"Nothing is impossible. When you have a goal that you really want to hit, things become clearer and your mind begins to work in ways it normally wouldn't. In our opinion, the following are the three biggest mistakes people make who don't qualify for a promotional trip make: 1. They don't proactively write down their goal. 2. They don't allow themselves to be accountable to an upline. 3. They don't develop a consistent work ethic to run after it.

"Leadership can be lonely. Ask anyone sharing MonaVie on a consistent basis. Sometimes you end up asking yourself, 'Doesn't anyone else share Dallin's vision to go to $20 billion?' We have a chance to rub shoulders with other like-minded leaders. If it's true that you are who you hang around with, we're anxious to spend a week on a cruise with a bunch of winners!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Terry, Joni, and Jessica Cox

Congratulations to Terry, Joni, and Jessica Cox from Austin, Texas, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here’s what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

“MonaVie became part of our life on February 17, 2011. We were introduced to a new beginning through a journey that has blessed us financially, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Our family has been extended through this company with the most caring, loving, and hardworking people we have ever been around.

“On August 12, we became qualified for the rank of Gold Executive. At this point, we had begun working almost every night going to meetings and having one-on-ones during the day. Giving meetings for our sponsored distributors became an exciting and enjoyable time. Although we felt tired on occasion, we were always having a good time while flipping the chart and making new friends every day.

“This business has allowed us to spend quality time with our old and new friends, time for fellowship that seemed in the past impossible! The more we share this wonderful product and opportunity with others, the more we are blessed. Absorbing the MonaVie leadership by going to major functions and all the Diamond tastings we can manage has rubbed off, and we have now qualified for the Cruise for Gold trip.

“Sharing daily the message of A More Meaningful Life has become second nature and has rewarded our family continuously by the many blessings we have received. Corbin says to do what most won’t, and you will succeed when others will not! It has taken us eight months to learn how to do this business. Keep it simple, be honest and enthusiastic, and let others see how MonaVie has changed your life. If you truly are in MonaVie to help others, MonaVie will help you by blessing you and granting you the opportunity to fulfill all your needs.

“We are looking forward to a relaxing time on the cruise and furthering our education through the whole MonaVie experience. We want to encourage our whole team to strive to achieve their goals and continue to work hard to accomplish all their dreams in MonaVie!

“In Proverbs 6:6, it tells us to go to the ant and consider its ways, and be wise. It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. In MonaVie you are your own boss. You own your own business. It will prosper if you sow the seeds and work hard to harvest its crops while being wise and following the proven path laid out for you.

“Thank you, Dallin and the entire MonaVie staff. We appreciate the path you continuously carve out for us. May God bless you for your hard, diligent, and unselfish work.”

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Tammy and Phil Poulin

More than 100 distributorships have set their sails for success by qualifying for the Cruise for Gold, including Tammy and Phil Poulin. Congratulations to all who have qualified so far. And, to those who haven’t yet: there’s still time! The qualification period ends December 23, so step up to the challenge and join us in the Bahamas!

"Phil and I were introduced to MonaVie almost three years ago by my sister and her husband, Tanya and Dean Pekeski. We had great results from drinking MonaVie Active but never thought to pursue the business opportunity. Four months after feeling the benefits, we started to share it with friends and family.

"Words can't explain what we have experienced in this journey of relational marketing. We have experienced such personal growth and have also seen this in our team. You can't put a price on sharing products that are changing people's health and finances.

"Phil, who owns a traditional business, sees the simplicity in MonaVie of having no overhead, no staff, no inventory, and no headaches! It has been an incredible journey so far. Not only have we reconnected with our longtime friends, we have met some incredible new friends that we will have for a lifetime.

"We will continuously change lives, one person at a time! Dallin Larsen is right: MonaVie is the best company for the world! There is no greater feeling than being able to go on a cruise with your friends and family. Thank you, MonaVie, for this amazing opportunity! Bon voyage!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Brent and Ann Morton

Congratulations to Brent and Ann Morton from Taylors, South Carolina, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"This trip means so much to us, but our hearts are to share it with as many partners that we call our friends in our organization. We deeply desire our friends to hit Gold and beyond because by achieving this rank, you gain more than a paid Cruise: you make a difference in others' lives physically, financially, and through personal growth. This is a tremendous reward!

"Each day, we simply contact new people on our list, stay in touch with distributors that have been out of touch for a while, and listen to the leadership to gain tips and positive affirmations.

"We really promote RVL products and encourage our team to be ready for the RVLution coming in January. RVL is exploding our business, and we are taking advantage of every opportunity that passes in front of us. We encourage everyone to do the same because it will be a RVLution!

"Follow the leaders who have proven success and have kept a tunnel vision. Ink makes you think, so write down your goals. Turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones. Stay plugged into those that are growing and going!

"Brent and I are truly fired up about connecting with all the qualifiers we know and getting to know the ones we haven't met, as well as hearing what the top leadership MonaVie will bring on this Cruise has to share with us."
