MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamonds—Roy and Stacey Griffin

Congratulations to Roy and Stacey Griffin from Corona, California, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...

"Our road to Blue Diamond started 15 years ago. Homeless with no education, my only career experience was four years as a grunt in the Marines. I was at the end of my rope when a few mentors dusted me off and helped me get back on track. I attended church and began contributing to my community. One of my mentors gave me a job sweeping floors. I was given an opportunity, developed a work ethic, and had a trade. It was that opportunity that brought Stacey and me together.

"We believe that together we can do anything we set our hearts and minds to. Armed with hopes and big dreams, we started living the American dream with our two beautiful children, Tanner and Rylie. I had a six-figure income, but the cost was too much for us. I worked 10-14 hours a day, and our family was being torn apart from my absence. When all hope and money was lost, we received an answer to prayer when my cousin, Melissa Turner, knocked on our door. We thank God for the day she shared MonaVie with us.

"We attribute our success in MonaVie first to our faith in God; second, to the brilliant leadership of the MonaVie corporate team; and third, to our upline Black Diamonds Rob and Lisa Alwin, Todd and Angelique Hartog, and Brig and Lita Hart. If not for their friendship, guidance, and support, we wouldn't be where we are today. We also attribute our success to our team of wonderful friends and family who travel the road to a happy destiny with us.

"What makes MonaVie extraordinary is that it gives so much back. The MORE Project gives the less fortunate the gift of love and hope. The MonaVie opportunity offers ordinary people the ability to go out and accomplish the extraordinary. We were just two ordinary people who wanted more out of life, and MonaVie is giving it to us one bottle, one person, and one relationship at a time. We are grateful for this chance to live an extraordinary life.

"If you're thinking this could be for you, it is! But, you have to want it with every inch of your being. We did, and our wildest dreams are unfolding before our eyes. We are now paying forward what MonaVie and our leaders gave to us—hope. Dream big for the future of your family, and don't let anyone or anything steal your dreams. Connect with your leaders, set your goals, and plot your course. Then, you will be able to live your dreams one bottle, one person, and one relationship at a time. We did, and we thank God for that."

MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamonds—Tuan and Catmy Vo

Congratulations to Tuan and Catmy Vo from Union City, California, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...

"Our road to Blue Diamond couldn't have been possible without God and our favorite couple who sponsored us, Nhan and Kathy Luu. It has been quite a journey for us. We never had any direct selling experience, so this was a whole new world to us. Things started out really well for us, and we thought we knew exactly how to make this work. We tried reinventing the wheel and didn't follow a proven system. We soon realized we didn't have solid roots.

"A personal storm hit our family, and our daughter's health was jeopardized. We had to take a leave from doing tasting parties. Our business didn't weather the storm as well as we had hoped, and we had to rebuild the momentum. It was tough, but we stayed the course. There were many sleepless nights until we began using a proven system. We got plugged in and attended all the trainings and MonaVie events. We realized that we needed to be humble and follow in the footsteps of those who had already succeeded.

"One of our favorite quotes says this: `Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than you. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.' We tried to follow this advice by helping others achieve their goals and became Blue Diamonds in the process.

"Our advice is to put at least one year into this opportunity and treat it like a billion-dollar opportunity. It doesn't matter what you know or how good you are; what matters is that you show people you care. Remember to discipline your disappointments and kick 'Mr. Discouragement' in the tush.

"We would like to thank the management team for this amazing opportunity. We also give a big thanks to Brig and Lita Hart for their hearts and to our upline, Steve and Gina Merritt, for always believing in us. Thanks to Al and Sherry Huva and to our best buddies, Nhan and Kathy Luu, for sponsoring us. We couldn't have made it this far without the love and support from our extraordinary team. Last but not least, we want to thank our friend, Vinny Vo, for inspiring our team and never giving up on us."

2009 New York City Regional Recap

Watch the 2009 New York City Regional video.
View the 2009 New York City Regional photo gallery.

On Saturday, June 6, 2009, at the New York City Regional Meeting, distributors counted their many blessings, as a good portion of the day was devoted to giving the stage to MonaVie distributors.

From Bronze to Crowne Black Diamond Executives, MonaVie distributors passionately told the world how MonaVie is changing their lives financially. For some, MonaVie has allowed them to put away a few hundred dollars per month; for others, MonaVie has paid their monthly mortgages. Whatever the case, it was abundantly clear that MonaVie distributors are profoundly grateful for the blessings that this company has brought into their lives.

Although the rewards to distributors continue to be great, what distinguishes a MonaVie distributor from others around the world is their willingness to become blessings once they've been blessed.

This was evident during Sergio Ponce's presentation. Sergio, Director of the MORE Project, along with his sister Lena, Director of Village MonaVie, showed a video tour of a home built by distributors' donations. Katy Holt-Larsen, Executive Director of the MORE Project, announced a plan to build 20-25 more homes over 10 acres of land at Village MonaVie. These homes will provide shelter for upwards of 500 abandoned or abused children.

Distributors who are fortunate enough to visit the MORE Project will get to stay at Village MonaVie and spend time with the families they are blessing. Touched by the MORE Project's presentation at the New York City Regional Meeting, those in attendance donated a total of US$21,000 on Saturday.

Just as in Dallas a month prior, distributors who attended the New York City Regional Meeting became one of the first people in the world to taste new MonaVie EMVTM. The free samples came with the news that MonaVie EMV will be available for pre-order for all distributors in the U.S. beginning Saturday, June 13, 2009.

The day's events made the MonaVie family around the world excited for the next wave of MonaVie, which will occur in Salt Lake City, Utah, at the Super Regional Meeting on June 20, 2009.

MonaVie EMV Pushes MonaVie-Cannondale Bicyclist to First Place

MonaVie-Cannondale bicyclists Sue Butler and Benjamin Sonntag each had top-10 finishes in the span of three races recently. Butler placed first in the Mount Hood Classic in Oregon, while Sonntag placed sixth and tenth in races in Austria and Germany.

Looking for a little extra training before competing in the BC Bike Race in British Columbia, Canada, at the end of June, Butler decided to enter the Mount Hood Classic in her home state of Oregon. Drinking MonaVie EMV for the first time during an event, she turned that bit of "training" into a stage victory!

Sonntag represented MonaVie well by finishing sixth in the Alpentour Trophy, Austria's largest off-road stage race. He also placed tenth in the German Mountain Bike Marathon National Championships, overcoming a stomach bug that plagued him throughout the day.

MonaVie-Cannondale Makes its Mark on Youth Festival

MonaVie-Cannondale recently participated in the Eckerd Youth Alternatives Fat Tire Festival in Hendersonville, North Carolina. Dr. David LaMond, a MonaVie distributor, and his four-year-old son, J.D., proudly represented MonaVie-Cannondale at the fundraiser for at-risk youth.

The MonaVie-Cannondale team donated a Cannondale F9 hardtail mountain bike, which was raffled off at the event. The proceeds will be used to purchase recreational equipment for the kids in the Eckerd Youth Alternatives programs.

"We are grateful to MonaVie and MonaVie-Cannondale for helping support Eckerd Youth Alternatives," LaMond said.
