MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamond—Gail Boone

Congratulations to Gail Boone from Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what she had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...

"The road to Blue Diamond was awesome! The greatest part of the journey has been working with great people and helping others become successful.

"What helped me become successful in MonaVie are my strong beliefs in the product, the industry, and MonaVie as a company. Also, staying focused, setting goals, following the system, and doing the work brought me success.

"My 'reason' kept me focused. I believe that if you don't have a strong enough 'reason,' the negatives in this business will kill you. Your 'reason' needs to be bigger and more powerful than you or money because it will motivate you to do things that you don't always want to do. It will also help you give up the useless time wasters that many of us do daily. Turn off the television, and turn on your telephone!

"You must set goals. Goals need to be written down, or they are just wishes. Review your goals daily, and revise them regularly. They are your map to success. How do you know which way to go without a map?

"Follow the system. Why reinvent the wheel? There are many millionaires in MonaVie. If you want to be one, follow one. There are no shortcuts in this business. You need to work at your business daily. The more people you talk to and pour juice for, the greater your chances for success will be. Be productive every day.

"I've spent almost two decades in this industry, and I can say that MonaVie is very unique because of the incredible founders and management team. Their drive for excellence has spilled down through the entire MonaVie corporate office and into the field. MonaVie believes its distributors are its most important asset. This is clearly demonstrated by the way they treat and reward distributors—5,000 percent better than the rest!

"Keep your pipeline full, and work productively every day. Whether it is 15 minutes or eight hours, take advantage of every opportunity to share the product and the business. Be enthusiastic, and have fun. Don't try to be an expert. Find out who is open to becoming healthier and wealthier today. Lastly, work local; think global!"

Unauthorized Asia Activity: A Reminder Regarding Pre-Market Policies

On September 24, 2009, MonaVie sent a communication to all MonaVie Ruby Executives and above reminding them of our policies regarding pre-market activity, with special emphasis given to several of our Asian markets.

As our business strategies develop, it has become much more evident to us how critical a role such compliance plays in protecting the enormous business opportunities in this region of the world. With that, MonaVie desires to restate its position to vigorously enforce its existing pre-market policies and procedures and eliminate any tolerance for unapproved pre-market activity that may put this opportunity for all at significant risk.

Therefore, as a follow up to previous communications regarding MonaVie's international expansion efforts and its policies governing distributor pre-market activities, we encourage all distributors to give careful attention to the following:

1.    By contract, distributors of MonaVie are not allowed to conduct any pre-market activity in any market that does not appear in the list of authorized countries appearing in the MonaVie Virtual Office ("Enroll a Distributor" page). Such activities would include the importation and distribution of non-registered product, the false enrollment of distributors, meetings, opening of sales offices, etc.

2.      While MonaVie has expressed an intent to open certain markets, under no circumstances are distributors to engage in the activities listed above in Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan, The People's Republic of China (PRC), or in any other country which does not appear in the Virtual Office drop down window. The countries in the drop down menu represent the only authorized and acceptable markets for conducting business.

Protecting Distributors and Future Business Opportunities
From time to time, MonaVie becomes aware of distributors who, in an effort to get a head start, bypass the established policies and procedures and as a result put the company and our future growth opportunities at risk. Such is currently the case in several markets MonaVie intends to establish future business opportunities.

In order to protect our loyal distributors who adhere to the policies, MonaVie will have no choice but to severely discipline—up to and including termination—those found in violation of such policies.

Unauthorized Activity in Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan
Currently, non-authorized enrollments are occurring in Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Please note that MonaVie will not honor such distributorships when the company is officially introduced in these two markets. All such distributors will be required to start over, reenroll, or even be barred from enrollment in that country as a distributor of MonaVie. Thus, they will have no advantage over other distributors.

In addition, distributors who are found owning/sponsoring a MonaVie store or found importing non-registered product or found conducting unauthorized open/public meetings (more than 4-5 people) in these markets will be disciplined, up to and including termination of their distributorship. MonaVie will not tolerate such abuse of its policies to which each distributor has agreed to keep and follow.

Today, we are putting such distributorships on notice. We will not permit such distributorships to jeopardize the opportunity for the many who are operating with integrity, nor will we permit a few distributors to jeopardize the international opportunity that awaits those who are willing to keep our policies and procedures.

Stay Committed; New Opportunities Await
Truly, the MonaVie opportunity could not be brighter or more exciting!  The opportunities ahead of us are enormous. Nonetheless, each distributorship must operate with appropriate constraint and patience, and trust that MonaVie is applying every resource to ensure a successful and timely opening of each new market.

Once again, we thank each of you in advance for all you do, for all you will do, and what you will encourage others to do to ensure the long-term success of these future business opportunities for all distributors. As always, we honor your leadership and celebrate the tremendous influence for good you are to the many you come in contact with each day.

We wish you all the very best!

MonaVie's Newest Hawaiian Blue Diamonds—Maranda and Dan Williams

Congratulations to Maranda and Dan Williams from Celina, Texas, on achieving the rank of Hawaiian Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone…

"The road to Hawaiian Blue Diamond has been amazing and blessed. We have discovered so many things about ourselves and about people. Our marriage has grown stronger, and our family has grown closer. Maranda and I had both been in corporate America for over a decade and didn't realize that 'golden handcuffs' had shackled us and our dreams. Then, Corbin and Holly Roush showed us the MonaVie opportunity.

"We were both very skeptical at first. When we finally looked at the science and opportunity, we realized this was an opportunity of a lifetime. From that point forward we locked arms with our friends who shared the same dreams and never looked back.

"When we finally got started, we were very busy with our three-month-old and three-year-old kids. Maranda worked full time, and I was working more than 70 hours per week. We had also just purchased an exotic deer ranch. We didn't need something else to fill our calendar. We needed freedom, and that is what we found in MonaVie. Now we enjoy a lifestyle that we could never have imagined in our wildest dreams.

"Too many people get comfortable in their day-to-day lives, and they stop dreaming. We didn't want to wake up one day and see that we spent 40 hours per week for 40 years working to retire with only 40 percent of our salaries. That was exactly where we were headed if we didn't do something different. Great opportunities only come around once or twice in a lifetime. We ask people to decide if this is their first or second opportunity.

"The key to success in this business is setting goals and being consistent in your positive activity toward reaching your goals. We set goals as a family and decided how we would reward ourselves when we met our goals. Our children recognized that there would be some sacrifices along the way, but the rewards would be so much greater. Teaching our children the concept of delayed gratification has been very rewarding, especially considering the 'immediate gratification' society in which we live. We will never forget their faces when we told them we had become Hawaiian Blue Diamonds. They were so excited because they knew all of our family's sacrifices and hard work had paid off.

"There is no glass ceiling in MonaVie! It doesn't matter your age, race, religion, education, or gender. If you have a big enough dream and never give up, you will succeed. We tell people just getting into the business that the only difference between us and them is time and effort. Find the people who see the opportunity like you do, and then lock arms and run. Serve as many people as you can. Don't forget to enjoy the journey. Keep God first, your family second, and MonaVie third. Thank you, for creating a company that allows ordinary people to live extraordinary lives!"

MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamond—Joe Dobransky

Congratulations to Joe Dobransky from Allen, Texas, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what he had to say on reaching this impressive milestone…

"My road to Blue Diamond has been fantastic. MonaVie has made a positive impact on my family. I have made so many new lifelong friends. This business is amazing in so many different aspects, from personal growth to just getting out there and helping someone on my team move his or her business forward.

"What helped me be successful is doing something every day to move my business forward whether I wanted to or not. Some days you are more motivated than others. On those off days you need to dig in and get some work done.

"To be successful in MonaVie, you must help your team. This is a business for people who like helping people–a pay-it-forward business. You must take the focus off of yourself and put it on those who trusted you enough to get involved in this opportunity.

"I put off getting into MonaVie for seven months because I did not understand direct selling. One day my friend Dan Williams looked me in the eye and said, 'Once or twice in your lifetime an opportunity comes along. I am telling you as your friend, this is one of those times.' I finally stopped and listened to him!

"Treat this as an opportunity of a lifetime. Work hard and stay positive. When you sponsor someone, help them get started right by plugging them into the system."
