Congratulations to Karen and Carey McLaughlin from Anderson, Indiana, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…
"In August 2005, our son Brion introduced us to MonaVie. I knew that we had to try it. I was looking for something that would help me feel better. I was taking 14 vitamins per day and was sick and tired of that routine when I really was not feeling any better. In a few short months on MonaVie, I noticed major improvements in my overall health.
"I was excited! What was in this amazing juice with 19 fruits that could change my life so quickly and effectively! On the other hand, my husband Carey is a dentist. Being part of the medical community, he was skeptical about the health benefits I was experiencing. But, he loved the idea of getting his servings of fruits every day by drinking MonaVie. After 10 months of drinking MonaVie, we realized that we truly had been blessed.
"Brion kept encouraging me to get on board. 'Mom, think about the number of lives you could change. You love people, and you could really make a difference!' He really pushed me into doing this. I said, 'Yes!' and haven't looked back since. I have thanked him over and over again for making MonaVie my life!
"My MonaVie journey has opened my eyes and my heart to helping and serving people with passion, perseverance, belief, conviction, and commitment. I love MonaVie and what it has done for me spiritually. I have become the person that I always wanted to be, and MonaVie paved the way for that spiritual growth. Carey is so supportive of our efforts in our journey.
"We have weekly tastings, and I do one-on-ones everyday! I share MonaVie with everyone who comes into my life because I care and want to help them get healthier, skinnier, or wealthier. At times, I have made myself get out of my comfort zone. And, now it is so natural that I do not even think about getting a 'no.' I know that I have planted the seed, and I make sure that I contact these people sometime in the future.
"I have become the leader that helps, encourages, inspires, and motivates others in my downline and other group's downlines. Lead by example so that others will step up to the plate and become what you are doing. It does not matter to me which group you are part of: We are all one, helping to spread the message of better health and wealth. I give thanks for my downline every day because we help each other to be better, be more, become better, and become more. We give each other support and motivation to see this out!
"I love when I get that phone call from my friend, Gold Executive Jennifer Bridges to get busy! She has been such an inspiration for me. Finding a buddy is a vital part in sharing your ups and downs in this business. When you become a distributor, we believe that you are in business for yourself but not by yourself.
"With the MonaVie RVL promos, Jennifer, Tina, Kenetta, and I decided that we should herald the message of losing and managing weight with MonaVie RVL. Oh my goodness, what a great idea to talk with local businesses in our area that we knew could help us get this product into people's hands quickly! It worked, and we blew the 3-Day RVL sample kits out the door. Thank you, MonaVie, for this promo!
"Our life has totally changed. We were not looking for a home-based business and did not want to get into network marketing. Both our sons, Brion and Chad, are distributors and are making extra money. Brion is a Blue Diamond, and Chad is a Silver Executive (soon to be Gold). It has been a wonderful journey for all of us. We love MonaVie—the company, the products, the management, the compensation plan, and the MORE Project. We have met so many wonderful people along the way. Our MonaVie family will be lifetime friendships.
"I love what I am doing. I get up every day and cannot wait to see whose life I can change. My family knows that I will never give up! I will not live in regret. I will see this out and finish what I started and live rejoicing! I do not know how to earn a reward without taking a risk. Our MonaVie family still has a lot of work to do, but at least we are giving ourselves a chance.
"Run at life with passion, persistence, perseverance, consistency, excitement, and commitment; and, have the will to win. I am not afraid. Believe in yourself, and do not let others steal your dreams. I look in the mirror and tell myself, 'Yes, you can. Yes, you will—no matter what. If it is to be, then it is up to me!' I thank God every day for MonaVie and the opportunity to change people's lives and make a difference. We are Karen and Carey McLaughlin, and we are MonaVie!"
