MonaVie: Safety in a Storm

Amid these troubled economic times, many people are worried about their jobs. MonaVie distributors, however, have no reason to worry about their MonaVie incomes, even as the troubled times bring turmoil to markets around the world. In fact, turbulence brings opportunity for distributors as more and more people are now looking to supplement or replace their incomes.

People may ask you: Why is MonaVie different? Or, why won't MonaVie be impacted adversely by the current economic crisis, which most people now recognize as a recession?

The answer to this question is found in the underlying cause of the global economic crisis: too much debt. Almost all debt in the global economy is packaged up and sold in chunks, in a process known as securitization. These chunks of debt, a variety of derivative securities, have nearly stopped trading completely, bringing lending of all sorts to a stop. All of this is a result of over leveraging in a variety of industries—from residential lending to leveraged financing for corporations.

For companies that require debt financing to operate, friction in the credit markets represents a near fatal risk. Banks are taking every opportunity to reduce their lending exposure by cutting off or reducing advances to marginal customers. For those companies that need to borrow money to cover inventory purchases or payroll, the credit crunch threatens their ability to continue operating.

MonaVie is different because we don't need to borrow money to buy products or to pay distributors. Instead, MonaVie generates cash to fund all of its obligations, while still achieving profitability. MonaVie has no debt, and MonaVie distributors have nothing to worry about.

We hope you continue to find safe harbor with MonaVie during the storm of these troubled economic times.

MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamonds—Gene and Becky Bradley

Congratulations to Gene and Becky Bradley from Fremont, California, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...

"We thank God for bringing this opportunity to us at just the right time. Thank you to our family and friends and to new friends who we've been blessed to meet during this journey. You caught the vision and joined this incredible team. We recognize that nothing can be accomplished without a great team.

"Our advice is really simple: follow your successful upline's system. It's a simple business when you get in line. We didn't do that initially, and we hit a plateau around Silver. Once we decided to follow our upline's system, we adopted a no-excuses mentality. We put our name all over the team calendar for tasting parties. What we lacked in experience, we made up for in effort and enthusiasm. This helped us advance through the ranks at a much faster pace. I believe Crowne Black Diamond Executive Brig Hart said it best: 'Experience is good as long as it's someone else's; then, it's wisdom!'

"We still have goals to reach in MonaVie. Foremost among them is to help others achieve their dreams through this opportunity. With servants' hearts, we will continue to help our team achieve their dreams. We also look forward to serving in Brazil next year with the MORE Project. Carpe diem!"

"Never quit!"

MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamond—Melissa Turner

Congratulations to Melissa Turner from Corona, California, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what she had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...

"When my real estate broker, Rob Alwin, introduced MonaVie to me, I became extremely excited. As a struggling real estate agent, I was looking for another way to create wealth. I quickly fell in love with the MonaVie product and opportunity.

"My journey with MonaVie has been very exciting. I have met many great people and have grown as a businesswoman and person. One of my favorite things about MonaVie is that it is an equal opportunity for all distributors. When I signed up at the age of 20, I was nervous that I wouldn't be taken seriously by the people I approached; however, I learned that the product and opportunity speak for themselves.

"MonaVie is really something that anyone with a dream and a little ambition can do. I stand by the company motto—Drink it. Feel it. Share it.TM"
