New Gold Executives—Jason and Jennifer Long
Congratulations to Jason and Jennifer Long from Bourbonnais, Illinois, on achieving the rank of Gold Executive. Here’s what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone…
“Gold has always been our goal. We dreamed about it for a long time. We had a magical two weeks where it just happened. One guy who just wanted to consume the product, whom I met in a gas station looking for a job, finally saw it. We helped him find two, and his two find two, and the rest was history. I will never forget those two weeks—the friendships we made and what it felt like to see the process and team grow so fast right in front of us. I remember getting my daily 6 a.m. call from my upline, Mike Bonomo. He said, ‘Bro, you’re going to requalify as Bronze.’ Then, it was Silver; then, we were shooting for Gold. We were just doing the activities and following the system, and everything just clicked.
“Plug into MVP Lifelong Learning, and find an accountability partner. Before MVP Lifelong Learning came out, I was blessed with an amazing upline. I was given many motivating CDs from Mike and Kelli Bonomo. I learned what CD to listen to when certain situations arose, when I was put into the fetal position. If you choose your accountability partner well, they pick up where the CDs leave off. I don’t always like what Mike and Kelli have to say to me, but we told them to always be honest and to never sugarcoat anything. There have been a lot of hang-ups and a lot of tears, but we’re still here and we’re still the best of friends. We appreciate their amazing leadership and friendship. Don’t ever quit!
“I’ll never forget my first time meeting Jerry Dowd. All I ever wanted was to gain this guy’s respect. I quickly learned to shut up and call him when I was Gold. ‘Quit telling me what you’re going to do, and just do it!’
“We were introduced to MonaVie right after losing our limousine business, our house, and basically everything we owned. We were in after hearing the company went to a billion dollars on two bottles of juice faster than any other company with no advertising. We had no idea what we were doing, but we were smart enough to know it had to work. We made commitments to attend every meeting/event, and under no circumstances would we ever quit. We would ride this until the wheels fell off. We have never looked back!
“I have never seen a company change a person or family for the better like MonaVie does. Everyone is so willing to help and support you, and most of the time you have never met the person before. It’s awesome to experience.”
