MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamonds—Erik and Michelle Cloud
Congratulations to Erik and Michelle Cloud from Boise, Idaho, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...
"We truly believe God put us in MonaVie. In 2007, we were preparing to move to Boise, Idaho. I was going through a box of old notepads and noticed that I had written the words 'Brig Hart/Attitude' on one page. Several years prior, I had listened to a cassette tape about Brig Hart's direct selling success and wrote down some notes. I didn't think anything more of it.
"A friend called me out of the blue the very next day. The first words out of his mouth were, 'I just met with this guy named Brig Hart. Have you heard of him?' The hair on the back of my neck stood up. Whatever Brig was doing, I was also going to do!
"When we moved to Boise, we only knew five people. I had some experience in direct selling, but I'd never built a business through home meetings. Building a list of local names was a challenge, but we did exactly what Brig told us to do. We started with the five people we knew and eventually got to know more people. One person who is willing to open two or more doors to good people will turn into a leg that's 20 deep. Just help one get one all the way to the bottom of the leg. That's what we did.
"The leadership at MonaVie sets us apart in this industry. We have the right people running the show, both on the corporate level and in the field. The MORE Project also sets us apart—in direct selling and in the business world in general. Michelle has a master's degree in Latin American Economic Studies and has witnessed firsthand the awful conditions in which people in Third World countries live. Michelle needed to fall in love with the MORE Project in order to fall in love with MonaVie.
"There are so many people hurting physically, financially, emotionally, and spiritually. Don't be selfish by playing small and keeping this opportunity to yourself. This opportunity is what I like to call 'guilt-free wealth' because it only comes in direct proportion to the good we do and the people we help along the way. We love our incredible team, and we won't stop until they achieve their goals and dreams."
