New Gold Executives—Yolanda and Lonnie Musgrove

Congratulations to Yolanda and Lonnie Musgrove from Pflugerville, Texas, on achieving the rank of Gold Executive. Here’s what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone…

"The road to Gold Executive was quite exciting. We are building the business with a wonderful team of friends who love the product and are excited about living a more meaningful life.

"Lonnie and I had careers in the hi-tech industry. He was laid off several times during the course of 20 years, and I was laid off after 23 years. We knew our future in that industry was over, and I was patiently searching for what I was going to do next. In my spare time I loved decorating and studying health and fitness, but didn't quite know how to translate that passion into the kind of income that I was accustomed to making.

"Because we had built a network before, we absolutely thought we were finished with that chapter of our lives and wanted nothing further to do with that industry. I was excited about enrolling in MonaVie to drink the juice, but couldn't imagine building the business. Our sponsor Chase Burk ignored our objections and insisted on us meeting his father Jimmy Burk and Jimmy's sponsor, Kenny Hargrove. Kenny went on to introduce us to Doug McGuinn and Doug and Heather Ridley. This was the beginning of our journey. This team of heavy hitters had amazing patience and confidence in us, and it was just what we needed to erase the negatives in our past and move on.

"The turning point in our business was the 2011 TPC in Florida. We were totally impressed! It was a first class event, and we were transformed. We came back to Austin convinced that MonaVie was not only for our family, but that it is God's answer to what the world needs. 'Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.' (3 John 1:2).

"We love the product, we love our team, we love our upline, we love Dallin Larsen and we love MonaVie!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Edie Minder

Congratulations to Edie Minder from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here’s what she had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

“Thank you, MonaVie, for allowing me the opportunity to qualify for this cruise. I am excited to be with my team and meet new people with similar dreams and ambitions. The most exciting part will be learning from corporate the power of MVP, and how that can help us in helping others. There are so many that need our help, and we have the tools with MonaVie to change lives for the better. It will be a win-win, fun time for all!

“Qualifying for the cruise, I believe, was the result of consistent effort. I work to build my team on a daily basis. Weekly conference calls, teaching the value of attending events, empowering our leaders, and working toward personal growth have all played a big part in moving myself and others forward.

“My advice for success in this business is to: stay focused, replace any negative self-talk with positive truth, and never give up. The only ones who fail are the ones who quit.”

Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Bear Harris

Congratulations to Bear Harris from Costa Mesa, California, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here’s what he had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

“When I qualified for the trip, I was not even thinking about trying to go; rather, I was diligently focused on making greatness attainable for all. I took myself completely out of the equation. I did not try to stack any weeks just to go; I was focused on teaching people how to work through the paid-as AutoShip calendar. The takeaway I learned from this is: Don’t leave anything on the table. I also believe it’s important to take advantage of every opportunity for personal leadership growth. And, finally, remember to follow up with your people—endeavor to not leave anyone behind.

“By the time the cruise date gets here, it’s my desire that people will forget that I'm going; it’s a new day! I've got 90 days until the Christmas holidays, and I want to continue to set the pace for my team and give people a safe place to grow and shine. I want to bring out the best in people and help them attain greatness.

“You can do the same. Practice does not make perfect; practice makes permanent. Practice something right, and it will always be right. You, too, have 90 days to redefine your role in MonaVie. If you need leadership, then lead. If you need to do more, then do more. If you need to learn more, learn more. But run your race and give everything you have. The journey will be amazing, and you will find yourself moving from success to significance.

“My name is Bear Harris, and I am MonaVie!”

Congratulations to Lin and Joe Austin from Tinley Park, Illinois, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here’s what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

“We have been involved with MonaVie for two and a half years now. It has been the most incredible journey. Qualifying for this cruise has meant the world to us, as we have not been on a vacation in a very long time. Our goal now is to help as many people on our team as possible to make this trip with us. We will be focusing on doing weekly trainings and one-on-ones with all of our distributors. We have the most wonderful people in the world on our team. They have become our extended family, and to have them with us would be a dream come true.

“The best business tip that we can give to others is to stay focused and believe that anything is possible.

“We are thankful every day for this company, this opportunity, our team, and all the people that make MonaVie possible.”

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Mandy and William Waldron

Congratulations to Mandy and William Waldron from Hobbs, New Mexico, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise...

"My husband William and I are so very excited about qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! The minute the promotion was announced, I knew that somehow, someway, I was going to qualify for it.

"In June, 2011, I was still Star 1000 and had been for nine months. I had become very focused on building my business. I wanted to enjoy financial and personal freedom that I knew MonaVie could provide if I worked hard enough. My Upline, Dana and Chris Tinley, also had come to the same revelation, and we began having Tasting Parties four to six times a week. We were also helping people we had signed as distributors see the bigger picture and build their businesses.

"In July I went Bronze, in August I went Silver, and then, on September 2, 2011, I met Gold qualification. We continue to hold Tasting Parties in Hobbs and in different towns all over southern New Mexico and West Texas. We have a weekly conference call with our team to encourage and promote upcoming Tasting Parties. We talk to people every day about the MonaVie products and business opportunity. We stepped up the intensity and never quit. We persevered even in the valley, and now we are climbing the mountain. The Tinleys and I are helping our downline in any way they need or desire to help them achieve Gold and be on that cruise with us.

"Anybody that wants to be on that cruise in January 2012, should talk to everybody they see about MonaVie. Have Tasting Parties every day that you can. Work with your downline to help them see the bigger picture. Don't quit! It is attainable if you want it bad enough. But it isn't about just wanting it; you have to put action to the desire to achieve the dream."

Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Angela Bruer-Balouch

Congratulations to Angela Bruer-Balouch from Fargo, North Dakota, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what she had to say about qualifying for the cruise...

"I'll never forget the day I was blessed with a choice to become part of MonaVie. I immediately envisioned the business opportunity and the need for the MonaVie juice for everyone! What I was most excited and grateful for was being part of a company that truly cares about people.

"In the last four years, I have shared the MonaVie opportunity with hundreds of people and many are now my close MonaVie friends. I cherish the friendships and the people that I have met because of MonaVie. We have a passion, drive, and genuine desire to make a difference in our communities and the world.

"This business would not succeed without my MonaVie team members. I am grateful for their leadership, passion, and continued support to make MonaVie the best company for the world. I am working hard to help every one of my team members meet their goals and bring them along on the Cruise for Gold.

"MonaVie is absolutely first class, from the products to the branding and marketing and the leadership. MonaVie is a lifestyle for my family and me.

"I'm blessed to be part of MonaVie and to associate with people who love helping people, and I am grateful to God for creating the acai berry and the other beneficial fruits and vegetables to nourish our bodies.

"Thank you to my husband, Nasir, my children, my mother and my MonaVie Team for supporting me in the MonaVie business. I am MonaVie!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Denise Trottier

Congratulations to Denise Trottier from Maple Ridge, British Columbia, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"I was so excited to qualify for the Cruise for Gold trip! It was just a few months ago that I heard Dallin Larsen tell us to "link arms with like-minded people." For some reason, those words stuck with me. I have surrounded myself with people who are excited about this amazing opportunity and have decided to work together as a team.

"Some of our team is new, and some of us have been engaged for quite a while in the daily activities necessary to make this a success. Wherever we are, we have all decided to crank up the volume. Each of us has made a list of the brightest, most "on the ball" people we know, and we have called them to share this opportunity. If someone on our team is hesitant to make the call, a team member with more experience makes it for them. We have also been heading out in pairs to share the amazing MonaVie products and business opportunity. We are probably making 10–20 calls per day and doing up to four meetings a day.

"We are all working together to create success for each other. Our unofficial team name has become "The Pay It Forward, No Man Left Behind Team." We have gained such amazing momentum because our philosophy of making sure that success is achieved by every person comes through in our presentations. I know there will be many more members of our team who qualify for this trip by December 23.

"One of the most valuable things that MonaVie has offered me in the past two and a half years is the opportunity for personal growth. I can't wait to soak up all the teaching and training available on the cruise. Another of the most valuable things I have been given are the relationships that have been formed and that will last a lifetime. I believe that this will be a life-changing trip for me and that it will give me the tools I need to continue to grow personally and professionally."

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Derek and Tammy Scott


Congratulations to Derek and Tammy Scott from Ukiah, California, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"MonaVie continues to amaze us with their generosity in finding new ways to give back to the distributors. This is our third trip paid for by MonaVie and our first ever cruise. It's a nice gift and fun way to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary with all of our friends and MonaVie family. It is also a way for our children to see that hard work, consistent and persistent activity, and helping others will result in goals and dreams coming true.

"The first thing we did when we heard about the Cruise for Gold contest was meet with our amazing upline leaders Jimmy and Catherine Reese. We drew out our A,B, and C legs in our business and decided who we needed to help go Star, Star 500, Star 1000 and so on all the way up to Gold. We were looking for leaders like ourselves who wanted more than what they had, who were willing to make daily calls with us, who would go out a few times a week to share the products and opportunity with love and conviction in their voice, and then duplicate that with their new distributors. We found those leaders in some of the most amazing families; we are so thankful to be doing life and business with each and every one of them and most proud to call them all friends.

"If we were to give any advice while others are running to qualify for the cruise it would be, decide what your family wants, believe you can, and take action! We encourage you to set your own daily, weekly, and monthly goals, and then duplicate this process with your teams. This is what we plan to teach our teams over the next 90 days as we set our eyes on helping eight more teams get on that cruise. We encourage you to plan and strategize with your active upline to achieve the goals you have set out to achieve. We trust our upline with our children. We have built friendships and consider them as part of our family; we know we can call on Jimmy and Catherine Reese and Mick and Vick Karshner anytime of the day or night. They have always believed in us, maybe even when we didn't believe in ourselves.

"Being that I am in law enforcement and my wife was in education, this type of business was way out of our comfort zone. But we have always had trust in our upline and in MonaVie as a company of integrity and truth. MonaVie has always delivered stellar products, and they have never missed a purple card paying Friday. We feel so blessed to be a part of The More Project that Dallin and Karree Larsen are so passionate about; it shows us the heart of the company and its ability to put families first.

"We are excited for all the Gold Executives and above who have qualified for this distinguished honor and look forward to hundreds more. We really look forward to being on the cruise and learning all the new things Jeff Graham and his team have in store for us. We are most excited because we won't be alone; we will be going with our team and can't wait to stop at all the amazing fun ports together. Thank you to my beautiful, sweet wife who told me before we knew we were going on the cruise to go quickly and get my passport because we would be on that ship. Cheers to a more meaningful life and never giving up on your dreams!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Jill and Dave Paul

Congratulations to Jill and Dave Paul from Laguna Beach, California, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"The most exciting part about qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip so early is building the belief in my team that they can do it too! An all-expense-paid vacation to the Bahamas with my teammates will be such an amazing way to start the year!

"I kicked off the promotion with a personalized program for each team leader showing them how to build Star 500s to advance to Gold and where to look for potential leaders in their own businesses. I then created a certificate for each congratulating them for going Gold and qualifying for the cruise. I asked them to post it where they could see it every day and to believe it. You don't have to know how it's going to happen; you just have to believe it will happen. Then, we kicked our activities into high gear.

"I have taken full advantage of the MonaVie RVL Promos by creating a whole strategy around them. With the amazing discounts MonaVie is giving us, it's easy to show current RVL drinkers how much they can save. We created a buzz with new prospects around these huge price savings. The packets are a fabulous way to share the RVL shake, and most of us carry them with us to the gym, in our cars, etc.

"Another big contributor to our growth was our team strategy of doing the remote '15-minute presentation' to quickly qualify people's interest. By asking for just 15 minutes to introduce MonaVie to people in the comfort of their own homes and with their own computers, we are enabled to present to so many more people each week. Some of my leaders do 3–4 presentations a night!

"The end result was new enrollees from Thailand, Hong Kong, Mexico, Portugal, and all over the U.S. We have a new Gold on our team, Leonie Lapoint, who now has the foundation to go for Gold two weeks in a row to qualify for the cruise. Plus, everyone has nice increases in their weekly incomes! We now have momentum going forward.

"I will continue to help others in my organization identify weeks where they can stretch to get to the next rank. With steady encouragement and guidance, I hope to help each of them realize their dreams of reaching Gold and qualifying for the cruise.

"I can't wait to travel with my team and bask in our success together! I love the Bahamas! The water is so warm and truly turquoise, and with the white sand ocean floor you can see so much sea life. Coming from the Pacific, that is a real plus! Being surrounded by other people who have achieved such growth will be inspiring to all of us. Gold is just a stepping stone to Ruby, Diamond, and beyond. Thank you, MonaVie, for giving us such a stellar opportunity to shine!"
