Update: Top Two California State Champion Gymnasts Excel with MonaVie

Last month, we learned about Averi Doktorczyk's gymnastics dreams. We are very pleased to report that Averi finished second all around with a new personal-best score of 38.325 at the 2011 California State Championships, in San Diego, November 19–20.

"God has no doubt blessed Averi with talent," Averi's mother, Jolene Doktorczyk says, "But more importantly, he has blessed her with work ethic, perseverance and a joy in recognizing excellence in others. It is with tremendous pride and honor that our family says, 'We are MonaVie!'"

We're also thrilled to announce that joining Averi on the winner's podium was No. 1 Overall Champion Margaret Kwok, whose parents are Ruby Executives Shannon and Whitney Kwok. Margaret, who trains at Kips Gymnastics in Anaheim Hills, California, earned the highest score out of a total of 804 competitors. Her parents attribute much of Margaret's performance, strength, and focus to her nutrition program, which includes MonaVie (M)mūn and MonaVie RVL.

"Margaret's success has come from sacrifices that very few nine year olds—or individuals, for that matter—are willing to make," Whitney said. "She truly has the heart of a champion."

Congratulations, Averi and Margaret!

New Gold Executives—Leslie and David Faris

Congratulations to Leslie and David Faris from Keller, Texas, on achieving the rank of Gold Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone…

"What an amazing opportunity we have been given by MonaVie! Not only are we thrilled to have time to be together on a cruise, we are also very excited to get the opportunity to learn from the best leaders. We also cannot wait to be surrounded by like-minded people who see the vision of becoming healthy and financially free through MonaVie. What a true blessing and amazing gift! Thank you, MonaVie, for allowing us this opportunity!

"Believe it or not, October 15, 2011, was our first tasting party. That week ignited a fire under us that had long been burned out. With a lot of effort, passion, drive, and love for the product, we made it to Gold Executive. With a little effort and determination, you too can do this!

"We have heard over and over how busy everyone is, and believe us when we say we are no stranger to busy. David is a pilot whose job takes him away from home 3–4 days per week. I am a psychologist with a full-time practice. We have three young boys going in three different directions, 100 miles per hour. We know busy! It seems to us that if 'busy' is the excuse, then it is the perfect reason to become a distributor! With financial freedom comes time. We all want to have more quality time with those we love. Don't let 'I'm too busy' be your excuse; make it your reason!

"We look forward to pressing ahead to the next goal, and we want to take those we care about and love with us. We have amazing upline support, and we have to say Byron Moles is absolutely incredible! He is so very inspirational, motivational, and supportive. He really is the reason we are in this spot. Tom Faris is also just plain great! He gave us that push to get started, even after listening to every excuse I could throw at him. We have been blessed with amazing people on our team, upline and downline, and we are committed to helping everyone succeed!

"It is also fun to have friends to do this with. Marydawn Hatch (soon to be Gold) and I went to high school together many years ago and are now working together daily to grow our team. We share our joys, victories, and struggles on a daily basis; and, at the end of the day, we laugh together and keep each other motivated. Every morning we wake up and ask each other, 'Whose life are you going to help change for the better today?' Having great friends to share this journey with makes it all worthwhile.

"We are so very excited about this amazing product, sharing it with others, and watching their lives improve. What a tremendous gift!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Brent and Ann Morton

Congratulations to Brent and Ann Morton from Taylors, South Carolina, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"This trip means so much to us, but our hearts are to share it with as many partners that we call our friends in our organization. We deeply desire our friends to hit Gold and beyond because by achieving this rank, you gain more than a paid Cruise: you make a difference in others' lives physically, financially, and through personal growth. This is a tremendous reward!

"Each day, we simply contact new people on our list, stay in touch with distributors that have been out of touch for a while, and listen to the leadership to gain tips and positive affirmations.

"We really promote RVL products and encourage our team to be ready for the RVLution coming in January. RVL is exploding our business, and we are taking advantage of every opportunity that passes in front of us. We encourage everyone to do the same because it will be a RVLution!

"Follow the leaders who have proven success and have kept a tunnel vision. Ink makes you think, so write down your goals. Turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones. Stay plugged into those that are growing and going!

"Brent and I are truly fired up about connecting with all the qualifiers we know and getting to know the ones we haven't met, as well as hearing what the top leadership MonaVie will bring on this Cruise has to share with us."

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Jim and Sandy Minneo

Congratulations to Jim and Sandy Minneo from Manchester, Connecticut, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"Our road to Gold was achieved by sharing the MonaVie products and opportunity every day. We started this journey building one relationship at a time and building a strong community of families that wanted better health and wealth.

"We are in contact with people on our team every day and talk about their dreams and goals. We help every new person become a Star and then move up the rank structure. We look forward to breaking more Stars and helping them move up the ranks to accomplish their dreams.

"This business opportunity gave us a chance to work together toward our dreams. Our activity and opportunity to grow was in our hands with no one to limit our chance to succeed. The cruise will be a great time for us to spend time together and with our leaders and to show our group what a terrific company MonaVie is."

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Ken and Adelaide Murdoch

Congratulations to Ken and Adelaide Murdoch from High Prairie, Alberta, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"After hearing and reading about the Cruise for Gold and realizing that is was very much within our grasp, we set our sails for success—as Jeff Graham suggested—and began to formulate an action plan to get us on the Monarch of the Seas. We were determined to go cruising. We really wanted the time on the sea and are hungry for the information and teaching that will certainly launch us into a new era of community commerce!

"We went back through our tree looking for a place to ignite or reignite our MonaVie business. We made a few phone calls, made a new list of future entrepreneurs, and began contacting them. The response was fabulous. We think it was our excitement and determination along with our belief in the company and products that helped us qualify.

"Ken started full tilt with the MonaVie RVL program on September 23, 2011—one day before his 68th birthday. He has enjoyed unbelievable results. New notches on the belt and wearing t-shirts that didn't fit before are enough proof for him to keep going on the weight management program.

"We have been on a daily intake of MonaVie juice blends since we were introduced to them by our sponsors Mark and Tami Crawford. Being part of Mark and Tami's group means there is no lack of leadership and allows for all team members to access their great leadership. We have to thank them, along with many others that have helped us along the way.

"We have been loyal to the products and learned as much as possible about them to allow us to present the opportunity. Our quality of life is awesome, and it is due to the products and the business. We love the company, the products, the opportunity, the direction, the future, and the example set by the leadership. When we show the A More Meaningful Life video to our prospects, they really believe it. This is important to us, as trust is a necessity.

"We know other seniors have qualified for the Cruise for Gold, and we can't wait to meet them. It makes us wonder what ‘retire' means. Whatever it means, it is not for us because we are Ken and Allie Murdoch, and we are MonaVie for life!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Mary and Thomas Meadows

Congratulations to Mary and Thomas Meadows from Dickson, Tennessee, 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 trip gives us a sense of accomplishment and determination to continue this journey.

"This business is all about persistence and consistence. We share the opportunity, stay in daily contact with our team leaders, stay up to date on all that is going on in MonaVie, promote events, and continually work on our personal growth. We do something with MonaVie every day.

"This business is about repeating the basics over and over. Star to Star Maker: we place a sense of urgency in our team to start this process quickly and then continue to do it. Most importantly, we believe in our team! We support them by being available for open meetings, home tastings, three-way calls, one-on-ones, or just a pick-me-up on those days when they may be feeling a little discouraged.

"Recognition is also a very important part of our business. We believe everyone should be applauded for their accomplishments. Our entire group receives notification with any new rank advancement, and they all acknowledge and support each other. It is all about your downline. Take your eyes off yourself, and focus on your team. Spend time with them, assist them, support them, and grow with them! The joy is in the journey; always have fun.

"We look forward to spending quality time with our MonaVie leaders. We plan to absorb all the information possible, learn new ways to grow our business, get charged up for the New Year, and return home armed to help our people reach their goals and beyond!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Pete and Joyce Stoehr

Congratulations to Pete and Joyce Stoehr from Sooke, British Columbia, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"What kind of company puts something like this together? Incredible! In sixteen years as a correctional officer at a federal prison, never have I been given an opportunity to earn an all-expense-paid trip—ever! What an honor it is to be part of MonaVie and to share the life-changing benefits these products provide both physically and financially. The health benefits we have personally experienced have been amazing!

"Gold Executive really is a huge milestone that people shouldn't take lightly. We are truly into the meat of things now. To have reached this level is a huge accomplishment; to do it two weeks consecutively to earn the cruise is amazing! We are so excited. What an experience it has been to be able to lend guidance to others and to mentor. It's so fulfilling! When we decided to start sharing, Gold was just a pipe dream that seemed so distant. Even when this promotion was announced, we questioned whether we could do it at first.

"When we made the decision to get on this cruise, everything just seemed to fall into place. Do not sell short the power of intention! What you put out to the world truly comes back tenfold. Focus on putting out positive energy and believing the dream can come true. Never ever did I think a silly bottle of juice would change our lives so dramatically. The visions and dreams we have are huge now that we have opened up the dream box again.

"We are a testament that anyone can do this. If a prison guard and a group home manager can do it, anyone can! You are no different than us! Go out with integrity, and be genuine with what you share. Take this opportunity seriously. Thank you, MonaVie, our great leaders, and our amazing team. We truly are changing lives! See you all on the open seas! We are MonaVie!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Shawn and Jenn St. Amand

Congratulations to Shawn and Jenn St. Amand from Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"It is a dream come true to be able to go to the Bahamas, and we are beyond excited. It is so rare for a company to reward its people these days, especially to this degree. It is an honor to be a part of a company that values its people the way MonaVie does.

"The MonaVie products and opportunity have really enriched our lives, both physically and financially. There is not a day that goes by where we don't tell someone about MonaVie. Taking actions daily is truly what enabled us to qualify for the cruise, but the most rewarding activity has been one-on-ones. It gives us an opportunity to get to know the needs of the person. Some people get in for the health benefits; others get in for the money. We know that no matter what their reason is for joining MonaVie, they can have both!

"MonaVie products sell themselves. We know that everyone needs this product; they just don't know it yet. We are here to introduce the product and open people's eyes to better health and possibly to an opportunity of a lifetime!

"When we heard about the Cruise for Gold promotion, we got excited and knew we had to get on that boat! I have to admit we definitely stepped up our game once the promotion was announced. We didn't necessarily change the way we did business; we just did more of it. You can't succeed without helping others succeed. Take your eyes off yourself, and focus on getting your friends up in rank.

"One of the most important things anyone can do to grow their business is to get their friends to the big events. We have been fortunate to see and meet most of the biggest and best of MonaVie through our travels to all the conferences and conventions. We've also been blessed to have had some of the biggest and best leaders in MonaVie come all the way to Alberta, and it is amazing what happens when people see them for themselves.

"Use your resources. Your upline is always there to help you. We are so fortunate to have a wonderful upline who lives 10 hours away and goes above and beyond to be here with our team to help us get it done! Our main focus now is to get as many of our friends on the boat as possible. We have committed to doing a tasting party or a one-on-one every night until the qualification period ends to help our friends achieve their goals. We don't want to go alone; we want our friends with us. The only thing better than going on a free cruise is going on a free cruise with your friends!

"We are looking forward to so many things on this trip. MonaVie always puts us in front of world-class individuals, so we are excited to get training from the best. We can't wait to meet all the cruise qualifiers and are looking forward to some fun in the sun! Alberta winters can get very cold, so it will be great to get away.

"Our MonaVie journey has had its ups and downs as one would expect with any business, and we are grateful for our amazing upline mentors, Al and Sherry Huva (Hawaiian Blue Diamonds), Joe and Colleen Wack (Blue Diamonds), and Dale and Karen St. Amand (Rubies). They have been a constant source of inspiration and support. We can only hope to do for our friends what they have done for us. MonaVie is one of a kind. We have the best products backed by science and protected by patents, the best management team, and the best opportunity. We are proud Gold distributors. We are happier, healthier, skinnier, and we are MonaVie!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Shawn Post and Melanie Smith

Congratulations to Shawn Post and Melanie Smith from London, Ontario, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"This means so much to us, as we have been working diligently for two years. We really wanted this trip, so we doubled our efforts, got great advice from our upline, and promoted the incentives that MonaVie offers. The cruise will be a great way to connect with MonaVie teammates and learn from the wonderful teachers that the company provides. Oh yeah, did we mention the food, rest, and recreation? This is going to be a blast—our very first cruise ever and, even better, all free!

"We work on revenue-building activities daily, such as one-on-ones, group tastings, and building our list deeper. We educate ourselves and try to simplify the business. If you really want to grow, then set a goal and achieve it. Set another goal, and achieve that. Next thing you know, you are going on a cruise! Remember, the cruise is a tool for growth.

"We are making ourselves available 24/7 to those in our organization who want to go on the cruise. Please let us know so we can help you and your people! Book those one-on-ones from now until the end of the year, and we are there.

"Our journey to Gold Executive has been rich. We have gotten acquainted with amazing people who have created a sense of community throughout North America. The efforts that we have put forth have honed our life's purpose.

"The relentless consistency that Melanie gives helps me say, 'let's do this' when I am feeling lazy or less than inspired. Our success stems from Melanie's efforts to take the business to the next level. We go to events, promote locally and globally. We listen to the leaders of this second-to-none business called MonaVie. We use the tools and take the advice of our direct upline. We build our business day to day.

"The upline support from Jan, Gary and Harp, Patty and Mike, Judy and Darrin, Dean and Tanya, and Tammy and Phil is what makes MonaVie so amazing. We help each other get healthy and build the business together. We benefit from each other. MonaVie's heart is in the right place (the MORE Project). Its mindset is in the right place (quality products with a built-in business opportunity). And, MonaVie understands the importance of the individuals who promote the product, and they compensate accordingly.

"Put your gloves on, get in the ring, and pace yourself. Fight one round at a time; don't always go for the knockout! Go the distance, finish the fight, and raise your gloves in victory."
