Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Terry and Lynn Mudge

Congratulations to Terry and Lynn Mudge from London, Ontario, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"We are so excited and thankful to be going on the cruise this January! After all, we live in Canada, eh. Our winters are very long, cold, and snowy.

"I was first introduced to MonaVie by my instructor Melody Gilmore at my local health club in March 2009. She was all excited and invited me to a tasting party. I said I would go, but I didn't. I said no six times. I even stopped going to her classes because it seemed like she was stalking me—the crazy juice lady. Thank you for not giving up on me, Mel!

"On April 3, 2009, I was invited to a hotel meeting to meet a man named Rob Alwin. I watched an amazing MonaVie video, listened to Rob's story, and got fired up! I became a distributor that night and ordered six cases of MonaVie Active because they said it was the best for joint health. Within four days, I became a Star! I sponsored my dad on my left and my friend, Ryan, on my right.

"The way I built my business is I shut the Time Villain off (TV). Also, I never leave home without my juice. Every week, I set a goal to do at least two one-on-ones in the comfort of someone's home and then invite them to a tasting party. I never leave a tasting party without booking another tasting.

"My goal is to help as many people become Stars—and make Stars—as possible. I keep in touch with my downline on a daily basis making at least 10 calls per day. We are always firing up and inspiring each other with information and stories. We are so thankful for our upline leaders Mike and Kelly-Sue McCormick, Al and Sherry Huva, and Steve and Gina Merritt. We appreciate all your wisdom!

"We are always teaching and training the new people on the Virtual Office by showing them where to get information for their questions. I'm not much into reading, so I listen to CDs on a daily basis whether it's in my truck or in my home. We promote all MonaVie events. We can't wait to hear about all the new and exciting things to come for all of us at the MonaVie 2.0 event this January in Dallas. Events like those are non-negotiable. Those that show up go up!

"We are looking forward to seeing all your smiling faces and hearing your stories on the cruise!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Ed and Steph Cook

Congratulations to Ed and Steph Cook from Reno, Nevada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"We hit the level of Gold Executive a short three months after taking on the business in the fall of 2010. But, at that time we didn't quite understand that MonaVie is all about helping the folks that trusted you enough to sign up to find their two people in order to start being successful.

"A wise Black Diamond, Charlie Kalb, shared with us that we had about 90 days to get our folks making money or else they would click off. I still remember the hollow feeling as that statement echoed in my head. Unfortunately, this warning came to fruition as, one by one, people found excuses to not do the business and eventually rationalized giving up the very thing that was helping them feel better. Even after this happened, we never gave up on the business, vowed to correct our previous mistakes, and waited for our turn at bat again.

"We knew that this fall would be our time to shine and, sure enough, it was like the perfect storm of amazing occurrences that got us to this point. When the Cruise for Gold promotion was announced, Steph and I pictured ourselves on that ship with our team and with the rest of our MonaVie friends and family. To reinforce this, I printed a handful of the promotional graphics and put them in strategic places all over our home and constantly pictured us with our feet propped up sitting on lounge chairs overlooking the sea. We only concentrated on doing activities to help our team and made some new friends along the way. By serving others, we were blessed with the rewards of our labor!

"Earning a spot on the Cruise for Gold was not something that we did alone; it was a complete team win! We would like to thank everyone who had a hand in this exciting milestone. It began with the Team Building BBQ that our Black Diamond uplines, Mick and Vick Karshner, held to kick off the season right. We also could not have done this without our sponsors, Mike and Shelley ‘Ruby' Robins, who were unwaveringly committed to us—even when we told them we were not interested in doing the business for over two years! ‘No' truly means ‘not right now.' Never, ever give up on someone because when their time is right, they will see the value.

"Most of all, a million thanks to our downline team, including Ron and Kathleen Howard who are Bronzes and soon-to-be Golds. You stepped it up a notch just when we needed it the most and hit a grand slam! Now it is our turn to get you on the cruise, and we promise not to rest until you are all there with us!

"Trust us: it works! Picture yourself on the Cruise for Gold. Ask for abundance, and follow in the footsteps of the leaders who have already made it. Steph and I can't wait to see all of you in January 2012 on the cruise. Meet us on the Promenade Deck at sunset, pull up a lounge chair, and join us to watch the waves go by!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Andrée and Ven Côté

Congratulations to Andrée and Ven Côté from Beaumont, Alberta, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"To be joining a group of winners and to learn more about MonaVie is very exciting to both of us. We can hardly wait until January. For us, it means getting out of the cold, meeting new people, and enjoying new experiences. Wow!

"Some of the day-to-day activities we do include listening more and more to our upline, attending more tasting parties, and sharing the products as often as we can. In the process, we signed up more people. We also spent more time training with our upline and making ourselves available to our new distributors.

"We are now more committed to learning all there is to learn about MonaVie because our objectives are well past the Ruby level. We want Diamond, and we will do whatever it takes to go to Maui!

"At the I Am MonaVie Tour meeting in Edmonton, we heard about a lot of new things coming in 2012. We cannot wait to hear more about the MonaVie Loyalty Program and how it works. We understand that it will be very useful to reactivate people that have given up, and we believe that it will help to keep people on AutoShip.

"We believe that there is so much more to come. We share the products with our daughters, grandsons, friends, and anyone willing to try it and listen to our excitement. We believe that it is not an issue of affordability; the fact is nobody can afford to not drink it. Everyone needs to drink and feel MonaVie. We are Andrée and Ven Côté, and we are MonaVie!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Edie Minder

Congratulations to Edie Minder from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here’s what she had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

“Thank you, MonaVie, for allowing me the opportunity to qualify for this cruise. I am excited to be with my team and meet new people with similar dreams and ambitions. The most exciting part will be learning from corporate the power of MVP, and how that can help us in helping others. There are so many that need our help, and we have the tools with MonaVie to change lives for the better. It will be a win-win, fun time for all!

“Qualifying for the cruise, I believe, was the result of consistent effort. I work to build my team on a daily basis. Weekly conference calls, teaching the value of attending events, empowering our leaders, and working toward personal growth have all played a big part in moving myself and others forward.

“My advice for success in this business is to: stay focused, replace any negative self-talk with positive truth, and never give up. The only ones who fail are the ones who quit.”

Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Bear Harris

Congratulations to Bear Harris from Costa Mesa, California, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here’s what he had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

“When I qualified for the trip, I was not even thinking about trying to go; rather, I was diligently focused on making greatness attainable for all. I took myself completely out of the equation. I did not try to stack any weeks just to go; I was focused on teaching people how to work through the paid-as AutoShip calendar. The takeaway I learned from this is: Don’t leave anything on the table. I also believe it’s important to take advantage of every opportunity for personal leadership growth. And, finally, remember to follow up with your people—endeavor to not leave anyone behind.

“By the time the cruise date gets here, it’s my desire that people will forget that I'm going; it’s a new day! I've got 90 days until the Christmas holidays, and I want to continue to set the pace for my team and give people a safe place to grow and shine. I want to bring out the best in people and help them attain greatness.

“You can do the same. Practice does not make perfect; practice makes permanent. Practice something right, and it will always be right. You, too, have 90 days to redefine your role in MonaVie. If you need leadership, then lead. If you need to do more, then do more. If you need to learn more, learn more. But run your race and give everything you have. The journey will be amazing, and you will find yourself moving from success to significance.

“My name is Bear Harris, and I am MonaVie!”

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Lin and Joe Austin

Congratulations to Lin and Joe Austin from Tinley Park, Illinois, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here’s what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

“We have been involved with MonaVie for two and a half years now. It has been the most incredible journey. Qualifying for this cruise has meant the world to us, as we have not been on a vacation in a very long time. Our goal now is to help as many people on our team as possible to make this trip with us. We will be focusing on doing weekly trainings and one-on-ones with all of our distributors. We have the most wonderful people in the world on our team. They have become our extended family, and to have them with us would be a dream come true.

“The best business tip that we can give to others is to stay focused and believe that anything is possible.

“We are thankful every day for this company, this opportunity, our team, and all the people that make MonaVie possible.”

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Mandy and William Waldron

Congratulations to Mandy and William Waldron from Hobbs, New Mexico, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise...

"My husband William and I are so very excited about qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! The minute the promotion was announced, I knew that somehow, someway, I was going to qualify for it.

"In June, 2011, I was still Star 1000 and had been for nine months. I had become very focused on building my business. I wanted to enjoy financial and personal freedom that I knew MonaVie could provide if I worked hard enough. My Upline, Dana and Chris Tinley, also had come to the same revelation, and we began having Tasting Parties four to six times a week. We were also helping people we had signed as distributors see the bigger picture and build their businesses.

"In July I went Bronze, in August I went Silver, and then, on September 2, 2011, I met Gold qualification. We continue to hold Tasting Parties in Hobbs and in different towns all over southern New Mexico and West Texas. We have a weekly conference call with our team to encourage and promote upcoming Tasting Parties. We talk to people every day about the MonaVie products and business opportunity. We stepped up the intensity and never quit. We persevered even in the valley, and now we are climbing the mountain. The Tinleys and I are helping our downline in any way they need or desire to help them achieve Gold and be on that cruise with us.

"Anybody that wants to be on that cruise in January 2012, should talk to everybody they see about MonaVie. Have Tasting Parties every day that you can. Work with your downline to help them see the bigger picture. Don't quit! It is attainable if you want it bad enough. But it isn't about just wanting it; you have to put action to the desire to achieve the dream."

Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Angela Bruer-Balouch

Congratulations to Angela Bruer-Balouch from Fargo, North Dakota, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what she had to say about qualifying for the cruise...

"I'll never forget the day I was blessed with a choice to become part of MonaVie. I immediately envisioned the business opportunity and the need for the MonaVie juice for everyone! What I was most excited and grateful for was being part of a company that truly cares about people.

"In the last four years, I have shared the MonaVie opportunity with hundreds of people and many are now my close MonaVie friends. I cherish the friendships and the people that I have met because of MonaVie. We have a passion, drive, and genuine desire to make a difference in our communities and the world.

"This business would not succeed without my MonaVie team members. I am grateful for their leadership, passion, and continued support to make MonaVie the best company for the world. I am working hard to help every one of my team members meet their goals and bring them along on the Cruise for Gold.

"MonaVie is absolutely first class, from the products to the branding and marketing and the leadership. MonaVie is a lifestyle for my family and me.

"I'm blessed to be part of MonaVie and to associate with people who love helping people, and I am grateful to God for creating the acai berry and the other beneficial fruits and vegetables to nourish our bodies.

"Thank you to my husband, Nasir, my children, my mother and my MonaVie Team for supporting me in the MonaVie business. I am MonaVie!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Denise Trottier

Congratulations to Denise Trottier from Maple Ridge, British Columbia, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"I was so excited to qualify for the Cruise for Gold trip! It was just a few months ago that I heard Dallin Larsen tell us to "link arms with like-minded people." For some reason, those words stuck with me. I have surrounded myself with people who are excited about this amazing opportunity and have decided to work together as a team.

"Some of our team is new, and some of us have been engaged for quite a while in the daily activities necessary to make this a success. Wherever we are, we have all decided to crank up the volume. Each of us has made a list of the brightest, most "on the ball" people we know, and we have called them to share this opportunity. If someone on our team is hesitant to make the call, a team member with more experience makes it for them. We have also been heading out in pairs to share the amazing MonaVie products and business opportunity. We are probably making 10–20 calls per day and doing up to four meetings a day.

"We are all working together to create success for each other. Our unofficial team name has become "The Pay It Forward, No Man Left Behind Team." We have gained such amazing momentum because our philosophy of making sure that success is achieved by every person comes through in our presentations. I know there will be many more members of our team who qualify for this trip by December 23.

"One of the most valuable things that MonaVie has offered me in the past two and a half years is the opportunity for personal growth. I can't wait to soak up all the teaching and training available on the cruise. Another of the most valuable things I have been given are the relationships that have been formed and that will last a lifetime. I believe that this will be a life-changing trip for me and that it will give me the tools I need to continue to grow personally and professionally."

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Derek and Tammy Scott


Congratulations to Derek and Tammy Scott from Ukiah, California, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"MonaVie continues to amaze us with their generosity in finding new ways to give back to the distributors. This is our third trip paid for by MonaVie and our first ever cruise. It's a nice gift and fun way to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary with all of our friends and MonaVie family. It is also a way for our children to see that hard work, consistent and persistent activity, and helping others will result in goals and dreams coming true.

"The first thing we did when we heard about the Cruise for Gold contest was meet with our amazing upline leaders Jimmy and Catherine Reese. We drew out our A,B, and C legs in our business and decided who we needed to help go Star, Star 500, Star 1000 and so on all the way up to Gold. We were looking for leaders like ourselves who wanted more than what they had, who were willing to make daily calls with us, who would go out a few times a week to share the products and opportunity with love and conviction in their voice, and then duplicate that with their new distributors. We found those leaders in some of the most amazing families; we are so thankful to be doing life and business with each and every one of them and most proud to call them all friends.

"If we were to give any advice while others are running to qualify for the cruise it would be, decide what your family wants, believe you can, and take action! We encourage you to set your own daily, weekly, and monthly goals, and then duplicate this process with your teams. This is what we plan to teach our teams over the next 90 days as we set our eyes on helping eight more teams get on that cruise. We encourage you to plan and strategize with your active upline to achieve the goals you have set out to achieve. We trust our upline with our children. We have built friendships and consider them as part of our family; we know we can call on Jimmy and Catherine Reese and Mick and Vick Karshner anytime of the day or night. They have always believed in us, maybe even when we didn't believe in ourselves.

"Being that I am in law enforcement and my wife was in education, this type of business was way out of our comfort zone. But we have always had trust in our upline and in MonaVie as a company of integrity and truth. MonaVie has always delivered stellar products, and they have never missed a purple card paying Friday. We feel so blessed to be a part of The More Project that Dallin and Karree Larsen are so passionate about; it shows us the heart of the company and its ability to put families first.

"We are excited for all the Gold Executives and above who have qualified for this distinguished honor and look forward to hundreds more. We really look forward to being on the cruise and learning all the new things Jeff Graham and his team have in store for us. We are most excited because we won't be alone; we will be going with our team and can't wait to stop at all the amazing fun ports together. Thank you to my beautiful, sweet wife who told me before we knew we were going on the cruise to go quickly and get my passport because we would be on that ship. Cheers to a more meaningful life and never giving up on your dreams!"
