Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Jeremy and Mindy Everts

Congratulations to Jeremy and Mindy Everts from Farmington, Utah, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"To qualify for the Cruise for Gold was a test to prove to ourselves and our team that we can accomplish what we set out to in this business if we work together.

"Some of our day-to-day activities include focusing on contacting those that we work with—prospects and team members—to make sure the right steps are being taken to achieve goals. Basically we were making sure to follow up with everyone involved at the time. We didn't really change the way we do business; we just focused on doing more of it and made a point to make things happen the way they should be happening all along.

"Get with your team and upline. Make a plan, and then work your plan. Tell yourself that you will do it and that it's going to happen no matter what. If you think that it's going to happen, then it's going to happen. You have to remain positive in all that you do, or the negative side will win and you will quit. And, that's the thing you can't do. Never quit!

"Reach down to those that are striving to build their businesses and help them build. If you help them, you are going to be helping yourself as well; so, why not help build someone else's dream so that you both can be happy!

"We are looking forward to two things: 1.) The opportunity to have the leadership training that we need to continue to help others build their businesses stronger, and 2.) The chance to soak in the rewards of being a part of a wonderful business that rewards you for working hard!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Gary and Laura Giese

Congratulations to Gary and Laura Giese from Prince George, British Columbia, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"A longtime, trusted friend introduced this to us as a business opportunity. We got involved mostly because of the product in the beginning and came to see the business potential more recently. The product is second to none in our opinion. The business opportunity is the right thing at the right time with the right people. It is the greatest opportunity that most of us will see in our lifetime! It will get to $20 billion and beyond!

"We were able to find success by following our upline Black Diamonds Mark and Tami Crawford and by staying focused and consistent. The Cruise for Gold is an awesome reward for generating an income in our own business. It allows for stories to be told, to let others know that this is working! It also means sun in February! (We don't get that in Northern British Columbia.)

"Our advice is to make a list, contact the prospects, share the opportunity, and follow through with them. Get them started by helping them go Star, and help everyone duplicate this process. Follow your active upline's advice even if you don't understand why.

"We are looking forward to fun, sun, and getting some certification for MVP! Oh yeah, and the food! Thank you, MonaVie!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Leandro Castellanos

Congratulations to Leandro Castellanos from New York, New York, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what he had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"I was introduced to MonaVie by a childhood friend and MonaVie Ruby Executive Marco Espinal. I started my career with MonaVie having no prior experience in community commerce, just the motivation to aspire for a better lifestyle. Once Marco and I discussed my business plan, I knew this was the right move for me. I love to help people, and that's what this business is: it's about building and moving forward with people who share your same vision.

"I work as a security technician in the downtown NYC area. I love my job, but my real passion is coaching little league baseball. I've been coaching with my father and brothers for the last eight years. MonaVie has helped me sponsor two of the teams in my league, and I have plans to sponsor more. MonaVie has jumpstarted my true passion again.

"My journey to Gold Executive has been a life changer. I have met people I never would've met before and have surrounded myself with positive, likeminded people that want a more meaningful life. I am grateful for my MonaVie family; I couldn't have done it without them. I look forward to sharing more experiences on the upcoming trips with the rest of my team!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—MaryDawn and Sheldon Hatch

Congratulations to MaryDawn and Sheldon Hatch from Olivia, Minnesota, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"Qualifying for the Cruise for Gold is such an exciting venture for my husband and me. I can't believe we really pulled it off! This is such a great opportunity to be around likeminded people and learn so much from other Cruise for Gold qualifiers as well as Jeff Graham.

"My friend from high school (and now sponsor) Leslie Faris was very excited about getting started with Monavie. She invited me to her house for a tasting party in Texas. I had heard of MonaVie in my small town in rural Minnesota because someone was selling it in a small coffee shop in the town where I live. My daughter Torrie, who is now a distributor, told me to buy a couple of bottles. She had heard it was really good for you. I did, and my whole family loved it. But when I went back for more, they were out. That was three years ago.

"One day last year, Leslie called and asked me, 'Do you know what Byron Moles does for a living?' Byron and I had gone to high school together as well, and we were now Facebook friends. Byron's status updates always sounded so fun with his travels and motivational updates. I told Leslie, 'I don't know what he is doing, but he certainly took the right path in life!' That is when Leslie told me about his success with MonaVie. So, I took Leslie up on her invite to Texas. I signed up as a distributor on October 16, 2011, and I have been on a whirlwind of fun ever since!

"I have never worked with such helpful and motivated people as Byron and Leslie. I am brand new to community commerce, and I was told by a fellow distributor that it takes a good, strong upline to have a good, strong downline. I believe that to be true! When I returned to Minnesota, I was no longer surrounded by the excitement that had been created in Texas. I was in a small town and needed to create my own excitement quickly because Byron had told me about the Cruise for Gold, and I was determined to be on it!

"I sat down and made two lists just as Todd Hartog had done. One was a list of people who I thought would be interested, and one was a list of people I was going to wave to from my Mercedes. I began listening to the conference calls and watched at least two Black Diamond documentaries a night. Byron, Leslie, and I text like crazy. I watched MonaVie University. I needed to learn as much as I could because I was alone here in the middle of small-town, rural Minnesota.

"I signed up four people in the first two weeks, and from there I told them that I would talk to anyone they wanted me too. All they had to do was set up the meeting place and time. I was offering a case of juice to anyone who had a tasting party. Leslie was offering to match the orders people made, and Byron would offer bottles/cases of juice depending on how much PV was purchased. This was an idea we had received from another couple who qualified for the cruise using techniques like these. It was crazy, fun, and it worked! I was having so much fun. Being a MonaVie distributor is the perfect job for me.

"My husband is now on board with me, and he sets me up with so many people to meet. Because he saw what MonaVie did for me, he started drinking it and feels so much better. I put a sign up in his shop that says 'ASK SHELDON WHY HE IS FEELING BETTER THAN HE HAS IN YEARS!' And, people do ask him constantly.

"I cannot wait to escape from the Minnesota winter and head to the Bahamas with my husband and all the others who share the MonaVie difference. My goal now is to help my downline get to Maui in September! Let's do it! I want to give special thanks to Byron, Leslie, and Shannon Rothmeier. They are a wonderful support system who contact me nearly every day to keep the excitement going strong. Every person who I have shared MonaVie with has his or her own wonderful story about how their lives have improved. I am passionate about MonaVie and love sharing the MORE Project. We are proud to say that we are MonaVie!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Matt and Shari McCants

Congratulations to Matt and Shari McCants from Urbandale, Iowa, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"When a friend called me three and a half years ago and asked me to check out this product and opportunity, I never knew I would find my passion and purpose in life in a bottle of juice. My husband thought I was crazy. He did succumb quickly and tried the juice after about 60 days. Then, he said 'Get it paid for!' I said, 'You got it baby!'

"My upline hosted a small contest to see who could sponsor the most people before a big tasting. I won by sponsoring eight people in a week. Matt then got to spend some one-on-one time with Corbin Roush who answered 1,000 questions in 45 minutes. Matt jumped on board. Matt had been suggesting (telling) me that I needed a job once the kids started elementary school. That was not in the cards, as I do not want to be the two-income-never-at-home family. I want to put my kids on the bus in the morning and greet them after school. I want to be able to go to their extra activities. MonaVie has allowed me to do this!

"The reason we love MonaVie is twofold: First, we have met so many great friends and likeminded people that have allowed us to form great relationships. Second, we love that the products and business model is built around helping people with health and wellness physically, financially, and spiritually. This is what MonaVie is all about to us.

"The MonaVie business for us has been up and down over the past couple of years. Customers come and go, or as we say, 'Some will; some won't. Oh well, some will!' This past summer, my husband was put in a position to look for another a job after 17 years with a company. Shortly thereafter, I lost my father quite quickly to melanoma. This meant that we had to divert our focus from MonaVie and place it on my mom, my brothers, and the family farm.

"With all of these changes in short order, it seemed like life was out to get us. Once we had the opportunity to look back and assess the situation, we realized that God was with us all the while. Matt lost his job, but that just freed his time for the more important family obligations that we were confronted with. I had a MonaVie business that kept working without me. That is the beauty of this business. As summer faded, Matt started a new full-time job. Family obligations began to settle. Kids went back to school. And, we turned back to our MonaVie business. Some things happen according to God's plan, not ours. Our advice for anyone taking this journey is don't quit!

"When we heard of the Cruise for Gold, we began to focus on the business to again achieve the rank of Gold. I knew we had to do it. In the middle of all the summer chaos was our 10th anniversary, and we were not able to take a trip. This was the perfect answer: a MonaVie cruise paid for by our work together on a tight budget.

"In Iowa, we are all about team. Our upline and downline have our back, and they are the reason we achieved this rank. We have a very special team. We all work well together. We love the business opportunity of MonaVie. We love helping people find their dreams and achieving their goals. We are looking forward to meeting more people on the cruise and learning from the best in the industry. We are so excited about MonaVie 2.0. We are ready to take our business to the next level and achieve our dreams. We are Matt and Shari McCants, and we are MonaVie!"

New Diamond Executives—Eric and Amy Klein

Congratulations to Eric and Amy Klein from Frankfort, Illinois, on achieving the rank of Diamond Executive. Here’s what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone…

“The last nine months have been an amazing journey for me and my wife. We would have never imagined that we would receive so much from MonaVie. We’ve not only received more financial stability, but more importantly, we have made some great new relationships and have been able to help so many others do the same. MonaVie has truly changed our lives.

“We could not have done this on our own, so we would like to recognize our amazing team. After joining MonaVie, we quickly realized what a great team we joined with an unbelievable upline. Steve and Gina Merritt  have come to Chicago on multiple occasions to help our team. These unbelievable leaders continue to help and lead by example.

“We also thank Jerry Dowd, Jeff Delaney, and Eric and Dana Kosel for all their daily help. Eric is there for us no matter what! With such a great group of leaders, it’s been easy to succeed. We have also been blessed with an awesome downline. There are too many to mention, but I do have to thank Tracie and Frankie Pretzel for all their hard work and sacrifices. Thanks to all!

“How do you succeed in MonaVie? It is very simple and you have heard it a hundred times: duplicate everything that is working for others. It is that simple. Plug into your upline. Do not do anything differently. This seems so obvious, but knowing and doing are two different things. Master the basics. As the old poker saying goes, ‘five minutes to learn, but a lifetime to master.’ Just keep plugging away by sharing the plan to everyone and never quitting.

“The last thing you need to succeed in MonaVie or anything is an indestructible personality. Successful people realize the game is never over until they win. Just keep playing until you win. Successful people truly believe they can have, be, or do anything they want. If you can do those few things, then you will come to realize the champion inside you. The only thing stopping you is you.”

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—John and Erika Atkinson

Congratulations to John and Erika Atkinson from White Horse, Yukon, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"My husband's electrical course instructor introduced him to MonaVie. One day, he came home sharing his excitement about a fantastic opportunity. I wasn't excited at the time, didn't even want to look at it. He had to ask me eight times before I gave in. We were short on money and time, and my health wasn't the greatest due to stress. I had been running a dog obedience school and an event decor business for many years; and, although I was passionate about my profession, self-employment wasn't getting us where we wanted to be.

"MonaVie had the answers for all of our challenges. When I realized what gift we had our hands on, I was onboard 100 percent and super exited! We never had any experience in this field, but it didn't matter. MonaVie did all the thinking, innovating, and systematizing for us. All we had to do was get on the MonaVie bus.

"People thought we were crazy for building this business in the Yukon, which is so isolated from the mainstream of things. But, Mark Crawford, our Black Diamond upline, showed up in Whitehorse several times to get us started and has supported us ever since. We knew in our hearts MonaVie was special in every way and that every person on the planet needs this product.

"In a few months of being on the product, my health improved. I found a new source of energy, vitality, and hope that we had to share with others. MonaVie is a very rewarding lifestyle for us. We love this company, the product, and the cause. Participating in this cruise is exciting because it's yet another gift from MonaVie and we get to associate with likeminded, inspiring people.

"Because we have an international opportunity, we can help family and friends in Hungary where MonaVie opened recently. Building the business allows us to travel back to my homeland and realize a longtime dream of helping people in less wealthy countries by bringing them hope, better health, and an exceptional opportunity."

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Darryl and Sheryl Burkhardt

Congratulations to Darryl and Sheryl Burkhardt from Boring, Oregon, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"We were introduced to MonaVie by a friend, Keith Winsell. When he suggested I try a bottle, I didn't give it a second thought. I took it home and consumed it. It's kind of funny: I drank the bottle and remember telling my wife, 'well, that was tasty,' threw the empty bottle out, and went on as usual. Well, the next week it dawned on me that I had been recognizing positive effects. It was then that I called Keith and told him to get me some more.

"In six months, my wife and kids and I had fallen in love with the product. We were consuming three or more cases a month. Keith came back around and said we could get our juice for free. We thought that sounded great and asked how to do that. He said we simply had to tell our family and friends and they too would want the product. The rest, as they say, is history.

"We love the business and view it as an exit strategy from our traditional business. We have a great team and the best leadership in the business. We are so grateful to our sponsors, Keith and Jennifer Winsell. We know this cruise is going to be a game-changer for us and help elevate us to the next level. We give thanks to God for bringing MonaVie into our lives. We give thanks to MonaVie for providing us with such a great product and now the cruise. We thank our team. We love them all and look forward to helping as many of them as possible achieve their hopes and dreams."
