MonaVie Distributor's Artwork Featured in Bouquets to Art

Bouquets to Art, one of the country's premier floral events, recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. The largest fundraiser held to benefit the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Bouquets to Art features 150 floral displays interpreting art from the de Young Museum collection. Among this year's participants was MonaVie distributor Emil Yanos of the American Institute of Floral Designers.

His display was an interpretation of "Coke Bottles" and "Gerbera Daisies" by pop-artist Andy Warhol. Emil created his "Gerbera Daisies" by attaching parts of several types of botanicals onto a wire frame. The daisies were then arranged with MonaVie bottles that duplicated Andy Warhol's repetitive style. Warhol used repetition of everyday items such as Coke bottles and Campbell's soup cans to diminish their significance, whereas Emil used the MonaVie bottles to establish its presence.

MonaVie Kosher Highlights Tel Aviv City Meeting

MonaVie KosherMonaVie Kosher's debut appearance created a stir of excitement at our first City Meeting in Israel on April 5, 2009. The nearly 1,200 Israeli distributors and guests who attended the event received instructions from leaders and got their first chance to taste, pickup, and purchase the new product.

The excitement for MonaVie Kosher was so overwhelming that distributors used the hotel luggage carts to haul a dozen or more cases to their vehicles parked outside the David Intercontinental Hotel in downtown Tel Aviv.

MonaVie Founder and President Dallin Larsen, his wife Karree, and key staff members from the MonaVie Israel office greeted distributors with the new product and outlined the MonaVie opportunity that is beginning to take root in Israel.

"The meeting was a great success," said Blake Schroeder, the general manager of MonaVie Israel. "Dallin and Karree were amazing, and we thank them for participating with us in this event. As momentum builds in Israel, now is the time to begin building the MonaVie story and capture the Momentum of MonaVie in Israel."

Building MonaVie in Israel

Dallin Larsen
In his youth, Dallin gained a love for the Israeli people and the country's culture. Dallin lived on a kibbutz (a type of agriculture community) and worked in the banana fields while spending time in Jerusalem as a young man.

Dallin went on to speak about MonaVie's commitment to building a message of hope, health, and opportunity in Israel. Providing a certified kosher product is one way MonaVie is keeping this commitment.

Karree Larsen
Karree joined her husband on stage to also talk about the company's foundation and to reiterate MonaVie's commitment of giving back to others, which is closely associated with the MORE Project.

MonaVie has become a billion-dollar company in four years because of each distributor's drive to share the opportunity of wellness through one-on-one relationships, Dallin said. In the same fashion, MonaVie will find success in Israel and continue to grow into an international marvel.

Randy Schroeder
In return, MonaVie is taking care of its distributors through awards and amazing incentives. With that in mind, Dallin recognized the achievements and hard work of Israel's first Emerald Executives, Snir Ben Moshe and Hila David, as well as Ruby Executives, Ronen and Natasha Triffon.

Black Diamond Executives Randy and Tara Schroeder were on hand. Randy talked about his path to Black Diamond status and inspired the crowd to believe in themselves and in their dreams.

Dr. Boublik
Dr. Jaroslav Boublik also took the stage and talked about the nutritional benefits of the MonaVie products. He stressed the amazing macro and micro nutrient quantities that come from the MonaVie blend and specifically the acai berry, the crown jewel of MonaVie's products.

MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamonds—Todd and Chris Miller

Congratulations to Todd and Chris Miller from Westerville, Ohio, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...

"Our MonaVie journey has been an amazing blessing from God. When our best friend, Becky Pitman, introduced us to MonaVie three years ago, we were very skeptical; however, we soon fell in love with the product, the opportunity, and the company. We are so proud and blessed to be a part of MonaVie.

"We made a commitment to hold weekly tasting parties and to stay consistent. Quitting was never an option. When we became Ruby Executives, Todd lost his job of 10 years.  We are so incredibly grateful that we had a 'back-up plan' in place. Our lives would be so different without MonaVie.

"We thank Dallin, Henry, and the corporate team for their integrity and vision. We also give a special thanks to our good friends, and Mike and Becky Pitman. None of this would be possible without our incredible team. Becoming Blue Diamonds is not about us; it is a reflection of the quality of our team.

"MonaVie levels the playing field. There is no limit to what you can achieve with consistent and persistent effort. We love that the only way to succeed is to help and serve others. We truly believe we have what people are looking for—a vehicle that can bless people both physically and financially. In these tough economic times, people are praying for an opportunity. They don't realize it is going to come in the form of juice. It's our job to share it with them.

"Take the focus off of yourself, and help others. Plug into your upline, be coachable, and make a commitment. Don't try to reinvent the wheel. Determine your 'why,' set your activity goals, and get to work.  Do something every day to move your business forward. Whatever you do, don't quit!"

MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamonds—Shawn and Chrystal Lyons

Congratulations to Shawn and Chrystal Lyons from Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...

"When we started MonaVie, Shawn was an oil rigger. He was away from home 20-30 days at a time. It was very difficult for our family and for Shawn to be away from our two beautiful little girls. We were praying for an opportunity. When our sponsors, Ronn and Jan Prpich, introduced us to MonaVie, Shawn knew this was the answer to our prayers.

"Shawn has since left the oil fields and is now the 'juice man.' It has set our family free. We are so thankful to Ronn and Jan for thinking of us. We think of ourselves as hope brokers offering hope for better health and wealth.

"We followed our amazing upline, Al and Sherry Huva and Steve and Gina Merritt. We committed to do everything they do (tastings, tastings, and more tastings) because they are tremendously successful. Follow your active, successful upline, and stay plugged in. When you help people get what they want, you will naturally get what you want. Al and Sherry often tell us that they believe in us, and that makes all the difference. Remember to pass on those encouraging words to your teams.

"We feel so blessed to be a part of a company that has the most amazing leadership. We knew the minute we met Dallin Larsen and Brig Hart that these were people we could trust. Believe in yourself. There will be days you feel like giving up, but remember to keep your eyes on your vision. Stay focused, and you will succeed. If we can do it, anyone can!"
