MonaVie's Newest Black Diamond—Shirou Oozono
Congratulations to Shirou Oozono from Saga, Japan, on achieving the rank of Black Diamond Executive. Here's what he had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...
"When I was looking for a company to be a part of, MonaVie offered a number of attractive things: The compensation plan is simple, yet stable. The product offering is accommodating. The company's global expansion plans are extensive. The timing is perfect.
"However, the number one concern for me was who Dallin Larsen would entrust to oversee operations in Japan. When I met Tadamasa Shimizu, I realized that he is a man with passion. I felt strongly that he is fair, honest, and willing to abide by the rules. This assurance was extremely important to me. Shimizu is the type of person that I can work with; therefore, I decided to join MonaVie.
"My group leaders are the reason I've been able to become a Black Diamond. Together, we have all worked toward this goal. I've been truly touched as I've seen how excited my group is for me. The best way I can reciprocate their hard work is to help set up a system that will make it easier for each of them to obtain the rank of Black Diamond.
"I believe my strength is my ability to visualize. I draw a concrete picture in my mind of what I need to do to achieve my goals. If you imagine your goals clearly, you will naturally be drawn to the outcome. Right now, I have a clear vision of where I will be three years from now. I used to be called 'Rain Man' because wherever I went, it always rained. Ever since I started MonaVie, I have become 'Sunshine Man.' Perhaps MonaVie brought good karma into my life. I can't help but be excited for tomorrow and all that the future holds.
"There are success stories from Black Diamonds all over the world. Please learn from them, and do what they are doing. Success in MonaVie is linked with everyone becoming leaders. Hold yourself accountable, and you will find success. The path has been set by our leaders. I am still learning. If we continue to keep our eyes on the leaders, we will catch up to them. We will stand on the same stage as them. Lastly, I would like to say to Dallin, 'I am so happy that I met you. I am grateful that you built MonaVie.'"
