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."
