After Indy Japan 300, Scheckter Prepares for IndyCar Series Championship

Driving the No. 23 MonaVie EMV car, Tomas Scheckter finished in 23rd place at the Indy Japan 300. In standard Scheckter form, Tomas jumped two positions in the early going to grab the eight spot after the first lap. He would continue on pace until pulling in for an unscheduled pit stop on lap 88. His crew discovered an internal problem with the car's gearbox, which prematurely ended his day.

"We were running solidly in the top eight, having a good race," Scheckter said. "It's very unfortunate, but that's racing and these things happen. I just have to thank the guys for giving me a good car and everyone with MonaVie Japan for coming out and supporting me. I'm really looking forward to getting this MonaVie car in the top five in Miami."

Tomas Scheckter and the MonaVie EMV car complete the IndyCar Series season Saturday, October 10, at the IndyCar Series Championship at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. Be sure to tune in to VERSUS at 4 p.m. (EST) to see all the action.

MonaVie's Newest Presidential Black Diamonds—Ken and Carol Porter

Congratulations to Ken and Carol Porter from Washington, Utah, on achieving the rank of Presidential Black Diamond Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone. ..

"It has been an awesome journey so far. We knew from the beginning that we had to put everything we had into this business. Part-time efforts get part-time results. All we can say is we are tired but incredibly excited about our future. Who wouldn't be excited?

"We've worked very hard, but we believe MonaVie will provide a lifetime of reward for our sacrifices. What a great tradeoff! We all spend our time, but we believe MonaVie distributors get the best return on their time investment. We travel, play, serve, and love; but, one thing we don't do is stress. Did I say yet that the work is really worth it?

"If you love people—and you better because this is a people business—then, you will never be fully satisfied with only your family's success. You genuinely want other people to experience what you have. It's a big part of what makes this business awesome. If it were only money that we gained, this would be a waste of time. True happiness always comes from serving others."

MonaVie Opens in the United Kingdom and Poland

Through strategic planning, MonaVie's Executive Team is expecting unprecedented international growth in the coming years, and we are thrilled to move forward with some new market openings. Our goal for continued expansion falls right in line with our primary goal to improve lives around the world through the MonaVie opportunity.

MonaVie Europe: Preparing to Launch U.K. and Poland

We are thrilled to launch the MonaVie opportunity in Europe much earlier than planned with the official opening of the United Kingdom and Poland next week!

At the time of launch, you will be able to order and receive product shipments and receive weekly commission payments.

This welcome announcement is in response to your tremendous enthusiasm, our growing distributor force in these two markets, and our ability to accommodate both the early registration of our products and the establishment of fundamental business requirements in both markets.

Localized Features Coming Soon
In our effort to move up the launch of these two markets, some services that would typically accompany an official opening are still in development (i.e. certain payment types/currencies; market specific sales brochures, videos, and websites).

Initially, you will be able to purchase products and earn commissions in British Pounds in the United Kingdom and in Euros in Poland. In both markets, you will be able to pay for products with a Visa or MasterCard.

In the coming weeks after launch, MonaVie will continue to vastly improve the opportunity by providing localized features, such as marketing tools in your native language as well as a more widely accepted payment type. In Poland, you will be able to purchase products and receive commissions in Zloty.

Preparing for MonaVie Netherlands
As with all our international markets, MonaVie is committed to building a legal, sustainable, and long-term business opportunity in the Netherlands. With that, we are taking extra steps to ensure satisfaction of all local government and regulatory requirements. We invite you to stay tuned for further information regarding our official launch of the Netherlands.

The opening of U.K. and Poland will mark our introduction into this dynamic region of the world and will mark MonaVie's fourth and fifth country openings for 2009.

With our distributor-first focus, MonaVie's momentum continues to rise, and as we continue to expand internationally, you gain the opportunity to increase your business proportionately.

Dallin credited the success MonaVie has experienced in four and a half years to all the distributors who continue to work hard, dream big, and believe.

MonaVie remains committed to treating our distributors as our No. 1 asset, Dallin stated. And as we evolve and grow, MonaVie will continue to look for ways to help distributors succeed and grow their businesses.

Randy Schroeder: New International Distributor Ambassador

vancouver_randy

One of the ways MonaVie is helping distributors is by making crucial decisions to create a better global opportunity.

At Vancouver, MonaVie officially announced that former Black Diamond Executive Randy Schroeder has accepted a new position as International Distributor Ambassador.

With 19 years of experience in the direct selling industry, Randy quickly became a top leader in the field and became recognized internationally among MonaVie distributors.

In this independent position, Randy will teach and train your international enrollees on how to get started and how to build a successful MonaVie business in each of our current open markets, outside of the U.S. and Japan.

Stay tuned to MonaVie Media Center for more information on Randy’s upcoming international training schedules.

“My responsibility is that when your business starts to spread across the seas, I will be there to help teach your prospective distributors. They will be taught, coached, trained, and will learn to become successful; and, you will become one of the beneficiaries of this remarkable, magical industry that is network marketing through MonaVie.”

—Randy Schroeder, International Distributor Ambassador

MonaVie Receives Patent on Acai

vancouver_jeff

Vice President of Product Management Jeff Graham kept the crowd buzzing by announcing that MonaVie has become the first and only company in the world with a United States patent on the use of acai in our products.

The patent covers both the nutritional composition of our acai puree (pulp), along with harvesting techniques and the proprietary freeze-dried method that are used for producing and preserving the rich antioxidants found in this superfood. The patent ensures that you and your customers are receiving the best acai product available.

Jeff also revealed how distributors are using MonaVie EMV to grow their businesses and attract new prospects. Since the successful launches of MonaVie EMV in the United States and Canada this summer, MonaVie has sold more than 5.5 million cans of the energy drink.

From surveys, MonaVie has learned of six key ways distributors are using MonaVie EMV in their businesses:

  1. Hand out as samples (80%)
  2. Use as a low cost introduction (50%)
  3. Replace other energy drinks (75%)
  4. Use as a gateway to introduce the other products in the MonaVie Family (90%)
  5. Reactive distributors (50%)
  6. Target younger distributors (73%)

New Presidential Black Diamonds

Dallin also honored Ken and Carol Porter as the newest Presidential Black Diamonds in the world of MonaVie, and presented them with a US$300,000 check.

Ken Porter credited Dallin for sticking to his word and turning MonaVie into a global powerhouse. He also described MonaVie as being the best vehicle to achieve financial and spiritual abundance.

“The compensation incentives attached to the MonaVie business gives me excitement and gets me motivated and out of bed every morning,” Ken said.

To conclude one of the most exciting meetings of the year, Dallin congratulated the distributors for raising about $15,000 for the MORE Project at the event. He also encouraged the audience to make sure their families are included with their goals and dreams. One of the best things MonaVie can help you do, Dallin said, is to create a financial future for your family, so that you can travel the world together and create lasting memories.
