February 2009 Ruby Fly-In Recap

MonaVie's newest distributor leaders gathered at the Zermatt Resort & Spa in Midway, Utah, February 4–7, 2009, to spend the week enjoying Utah's winter recreation, including skiing, shopping, and fine dining. The distributors also heard from a variety of corporate representatives at a meeting on Thursday.

Thursday's meeting helped distributors to build confidence in themselves as well as in the corporate team. Barry Phillips, director of training and development, added to that overall feeling of confidence by announcing forthcoming courses in MonaVie University.

An online learning tool delivering in-depth training to help distributors become more productive and efficient in running their independent businesses, MonaVie University will soon offer courses to help distributors better understand the Compensation Plan as well as MonaVie products. There will also be a compliance certification program in the future for Ruby level and above distributors. All MonaVie University courses are offered free of charge and can be accessed by logging into your Virtual Office.

Before distributors hit the hills for tubing and dinner at Soldier Hollow Thursday night, Executive Vice President and Cofounder Henry Marsh delivered the final presentation of the day. Henry, a four-time U.S. Olympian in track and field, exhorted the crowd to be passionate about MonaVie. "Passion is the will and desire to sacrifice what you want now in pursuit of a dream or goal you want more," Henry explained. "If you want to be a Black Diamond, you have to have the passion."

Describing his own experiences as an Olympic steeplechase competitor, Henry wondered aloud why so many people in the world never find the greatness in themselves. He suggested that the answer may be that life is simply too comfortable for most people to discover their true purposes in life.

"I hope you wake up every day with a dedication to your purposes in life," Henry said. "Your success in MonaVie will be directly proportionate to the magnitude of your purposes."

MonaVie's next Ruby Fly-In is scheduled for July 15–18, 2009. The deadline to qualify is March 27, 2009.

MonaVie Celebrates Grand Opening in Japan

MonaVie will commemorate its launch in Japan with the biggest grand opening ceremony in company history on Saturday, February 21, 2009!

"There's no doubt in my mind that MonaVie will take Japan by storm like no other company has before," says Tadamasu Shimizu, general manager of MonaVie Japan. "Together, we will develop MonaVie into a company that serves as a beacon to this amazing industry."

Diamond Executives and international distributors are hailing the formal grand opening of Japan as the biggest event since MonaVie launched in 2005. With more than 5,000 distributors and guests expected, the epic ceremony will occur Saturday, February 21, in Yokohama City, Japan.

In addition to its historical significance, Scott Olsen, Black Diamond Executive, said the event will become one of the company's proudest moments. Given Japan's vibrant economy, MonaVie looks to achieve more success and build a solid footing in the country one person at a time.
"People all over the world are looking for an opportunity to fulfill their dreams, and MonaVie opening in Japan is that opportunity," Scott added.

Corporate Leaders
As is custom, Dallin Larsen, founder and president of MonaVie, will personally welcome distributors and guests at the occasion. The festivities will also include several other prominent MonaVie leaders:

  • Henry Marsh, executive vice president and cofounder
  • Randy Larsen, executive vice president and cofounder
  • Varlin Law, vice president of international sales
  • Doug Allen, vice president of international development
  • Tadamasa Shimizu, Japan general manager
  • Jeff Graham, vice president of product management

MonaVie's on-the-ground presence in the world's second largest market officially commenced January 19, 2009. Since that time distributors in Japan have enjoyed many benefits, including a brand new office in Tokyo, local pricing, and domestic distribution with discounted shipping costs.

"Expanding our international presence into Japan has created tremendous excitement. Launching our full MonaVie business model in Japan has been an important part of the company's vision for a long time. This will be the biggest opening in MonaVie's history, and we are expecting a sellout crowd at the grand ceremony to celebrate it."
Doug Allen, vice president of international development

"I have hoped and planned, dreamed and schemed, worked and prayed for this monumental event in MonaVie's history. It is so exciting to see the efforts of a dedicated and talented international team coming to fruition. I want to thank all the wonderful distributor leaders who have displayed great vision and belief in our mission to change the world for the better, one person at a time."
Varlin Law, vice president of international sales

"In our business careers, there are few opportunities that we can look to as turning points. In North America, MonaVie has shattered the record books related to growth in our industry and has redefined how companies operate by setting a new standard. Japan is the jewel of the Pacific and the most dominating international market in our industry."
Darrell Utterbach, Royal Black Diamond distributor

"The Japan Grand Opening ceremony is going to be spectacular. MonaVie is making great waves in Japan, and the time is right to ride these waves on our surfboards of 'hope and faith.' We hope you will join the MonaVie family at this marvelous event."
Tadamasa Shimizu, Japan general manager

MonaVie Coming to You in 2009!

MonaVie Founder and President delighted thousands at the recent Anaheim (Calif.) Regional Meeting, when he announced that MonaVie is coming to you in 2009.

In lieu of asking distributors to attend a centralized international convention this year, we are bringing all that MonaVie has to offer to a city near you. This means more city and regional meetings in cities that are closer to you, our valued distributors.

"I'm not going to wait for the government," Dallin said at the Anaheim Regional Meeting. "We've got our own stimulus package."

During these tough economic times, MonaVie is continually looking for ways to help its distributors enjoy the MonaVie opportunity to the fullest; however, MonaVie as a company is doing better than it ever has. As Chief Financial Officer Devin Thorpe told the distributors in Anaheim, "You don't need to worry. This recession was caused by too much debt, and MonaVie has no need to borrow money. MonaVie is a safe place to be."

Stay tuned for more information on upcoming MonaVie events and a special recap of the landmark Regional Meeting that took place this past weekend in Anaheim, California.
