MonaVie Cannondale’s Alex Grant Top American Finisher in Costa Rica

[Costa Rica] – November 14, 2009 – MonaVie Cannondale placed three of the top-10 finishers at the recently concluded La Ruta de los Conquistadores on Saturday, November 14, in Costa Rica.

Alex Grant took second overall, earning him the honor of being the highest placing American in the race. The last time an American finished that high at La Ruta was seven years ago when MonaVie Cannondale’s own Tinker Juarez also placed second. Following closely behind Grant were teammates Jeremiah Bishop and Ben Sonntag who finished in seventh and ninth place, respectively. MonaVie Cannondale cyclist Bart Gillespie took 14th place, while Bryan Alders placed 28th overall.

Considered by many to be the most difficult multi-day race in mountain biking, La Ruta de los Conquistadores takes racers across the treacherous mountains of Costa Rica and through several lavish rain forests, passing majestic active volcanoes and roaring rivers along the way.

"Cascading Payment" Feature Added to AutoShip Program

MonaVie Autoship Program
MonaVie is pleased to announce a new enhancement to the AutoShip program—"cascading payment" capability.*

With this new feature, you now have the option to add additional credit cards or payment methods to your AutoShip account as a backup to those occasional, unanticipated moments when your primary payment method does not process. This will ensure successful fulfillment of your AutoShip orders every time.

How to manage the "cascading payment" feature:

• Access your Virtual Office.
• Click "Manage AutoShip" (left-hand navigation).
• Click "Add Payment Method."
• Enter your additional payment method information.
• Click "Save."

You can enter a maximum of three unique payment methods. Also, be sure to use the "up" and "down" arrows to the left of each payment method in order to specify which sequence you prefer to have your listed payment methods used.

MonaVie Commissions and the "cascading payment" feature
For those markets where MonaVie Commissions is offered, we are thrilled to add the option to list MonaVie Commissions as a primary or backup payment method in your AutoShip account. This allows you to use the funds in your MonaVie Commissions account to pay for your AutoShip orders, thus avoiding the extra time and expense of transferring funds to your personal bank account and then using those funds to purchase products.

We strongly encourage all distributors who have access to MonaVie Commissions to select this option as your primary AutoShip payment method, as we believe this will result in significant cost and time savings. (Please note that if you select MonaVie Commissions as your primary payment method, you will need to select a minimum of one credit card as a secondary payment method. MonaVie meets all PCI compliance requirements, and therefore, any credit card information you provide is strictly confidential and secure.)

Ensure your AutoShip orders arrive as expected by taking advantage of this new feature today!

MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamond—Gail Boone

Congratulations to Gail Boone from Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what she had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...

"The road to Blue Diamond was awesome! The greatest part of the journey has been working with great people and helping others become successful.

"What helped me become successful in MonaVie are my strong beliefs in the product, the industry, and MonaVie as a company. Also, staying focused, setting goals, following the system, and doing the work brought me success.

"My 'reason' kept me focused. I believe that if you don't have a strong enough 'reason,' the negatives in this business will kill you. Your 'reason' needs to be bigger and more powerful than you or money because it will motivate you to do things that you don't always want to do. It will also help you give up the useless time wasters that many of us do daily. Turn off the television, and turn on your telephone!

"You must set goals. Goals need to be written down, or they are just wishes. Review your goals daily, and revise them regularly. They are your map to success. How do you know which way to go without a map?

"Follow the system. Why reinvent the wheel? There are many millionaires in MonaVie. If you want to be one, follow one. There are no shortcuts in this business. You need to work at your business daily. The more people you talk to and pour juice for, the greater your chances for success will be. Be productive every day.

"I've spent almost two decades in this industry, and I can say that MonaVie is very unique because of the incredible founders and management team. Their drive for excellence has spilled down through the entire MonaVie corporate office and into the field. MonaVie believes its distributors are its most important asset. This is clearly demonstrated by the way they treat and reward distributors—5,000 percent better than the rest!

"Keep your pipeline full, and work productively every day. Whether it is 15 minutes or eight hours, take advantage of every opportunity to share the product and the business. Be enthusiastic, and have fun. Don't try to be an expert. Find out who is open to becoming healthier and wealthier today. Lastly, work local; think global!"
