MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamonds—Dr. Rashid and Debbie Buttar
Congratulations to Dr. Rashid and Debbie Buttar from Huntersville, North Carolina, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...
"When I was approached by a man promoting a fruit juice in what looked like a wine bottle, I had no interest in what he was telling me; however, the word 'açai' caught my attention because I had a contract to purchase a white dwarf acai plantation just outside of Rio de Janeiro. I didn't realize at the time that the man (Robert Lemus) 'pitching' me the juice would become one of my closest friends.
"It took Robert a month to convince me to join MonaVie. When I did make the decision to join, it was more than an intellectual or financial decision; I believe my decision was made with direction from above. MonaVie products are truly fantastic. Recently, I was asked which three healthy products I would take with me if I had to leave Earth. I answered with the three things I use on a daily basis, including MonaVie.
"I was in MonaVie for nearly a year-and-a-half before I realized that I was conducting my business the wrong way. I had signed up over 100 people, but there is a huge difference between signing people up and sponsoring them. I fully realized this when I spent some time with MonaVie leaders at corporate-sponsored events. I hope that those reading this will learn from my mistake and understand the difference between sponsoring and merely signing up.
"Brig Hart told us in Japan that people don't care what you know; they want to know that you care. This simple statement had a profound impact on me, and I encourage everyone to remember it. I realized that I had grown my own medical practice by living this principle. My staff and I maintained 110 percent focus on showing our patients that we truly care. We didn't let anyone or anything distract us from that goal, which led to our success.
"I've experienced one unanticipated, yet phenomenal, benefit since joining MonaVie. I've heard others who've excelled in MonaVie mention this as well: The relationships I've developed through MonaVie are absolutely the best friendships I could have ever imagined developing.
"Tim Wilson and Brig and Lita Hart have been unselfish in providing guidance and accessibility. Randy Evans, Scott Falany, and especially Robert and Dawn Lemus and Steve and Linda Kampouroglou exemplify what it means to be extraordinary and tireless leaders. I feel I've well exceeded my allotment of what my daughter would call BFFs (best friends forever). Of course, I could never forget the incredible people that make up my own team, from my wonderful wife Debbie and my great staff to the rest of our hardworking and tireless team of distributors.
"My advice is simple: Believe, take action, and never quit. Always choose to remain happy and grateful because it will keep you in the right state of resonance to attract what you want. This is the magic formula for success in anything you do in life. Most people don't believe or take action; and, if they do, they quit easily. If you just believe, take action, and never quit, you'll be in the top five percent of people in the world. You will achieve all your dreams and more. Be well, and stay healthy!"
