MonaVie’s Newest Blue Diamonds—Linda and Steve Kampouroglou

Congratulations to Linda and Steve Kampouroglou from Tarpon Springs, Florida, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here’s what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone…

“Each morning we wake up, we remember how precious life is and give thanks to our creator for what we have. One thing is for certain: none of us knows what tomorrow will bring, so we have to live each day as if it were our last.

“We have spent over 25 years in the custom home building business and over 20 years in martial arts. We’ve been blessed to have very successful businesses, which require hard work. Steve knows the meaning of working hard, as he has earned a double black belt in two styles of martial arts and has won several world championships. We know that to win or be successful at anything requires work, dedication, commitment, and passion. Without a doubt, champions are built in the process of hard work and sometimes pain. We choose to be champions at life, and MonaVie has allowed us that opportunity.

“About three and a half years ago, we were introduced to MonaVie. We are a family of five, and each of us has a testimony that we will never stop drinking this great product. We were drinking MonaVie but not really thinking of working it as a business until the economy and our business took a downward direction. We got on our knees and asked God for guidance and direction to help us be and do something significant for our friends and family. The next day we were invited to a function that changed our life.

“As we got into the elevator, Dallin Larsen walked in. He took the time to talk to Steve, and as we got off the elevator, he told him that we were going to do something significant and change a lot of people’s lives. The word ‘significant’ stood out because that is what we prayed about the day before. This was truly an answer to our prayers. We developed a friendship that we will treasure forever.

“Where my friends Dallin, Brig, and Lita are, that’s where we will be. If you are able to find one true friend in life, you are blessed. We have been blessed beyond compare with the friendships we have developed through MonaVie. We are blessed to be Blue Diamonds and to have just returned from Hawaii for the second year in a row.

“If you want to do something significant and change your life physically and financially, look at this company with an open mind and heart. We are proof that it can change your life. God first, family second, and MonaVie third. Yes, in life you can go from success to significance.”

MonaVie’s Newest Blue Diamonds—Russ and Melanie Jones

Congratulations to Russ and Melanie Jones from Cornelius, North Carolina, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here’s what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone…

“Our journey to Blue Diamond has been a combination of what we call ‘God Winks!’ In the Fall of 2006, an accident on the highway in Charlotte, North Carolina had traffic stopped for miles, which placed us behind a motor home dragging a Hummer H3. Both were branded with ‘MonaVie’ and a phone number, so Melanie made the inquisitive phone call. A guy by the name of Ron Prudhomme answered, and the rest is history!

“After partnering with our upline (partners) and showing them a level of commitment and loyalty, they bestowed wisdom and encouragement on us. We, in turn, partnered with our downline (partners) and disseminated that same wisdom and knowledge. Shared success is preferred to solo success.

“From the get-go, MonaVie has given us hope in a world of lost hope. MonaVie’s commitment to The MORE Project, as well as its ability to inspire people to step out on faith and help others succeed is unparalleled in the corporate world. When we received our Star 500 pins, we were hooked. Now, we’re being rewarded with trips to Park City, Utah; Orlando, Florida; and Hawaii! In the process, our dependence on an ever-declining airline career is dwindling.

“We tell everyone we aren’t professional speakers; we are passionate speakers. By working as though we are brand new to the MonaVie opportunity, we remain in the creative mode. Just talk to people about themselves and their pain will surface. Throw them the lifeline called MonaVie and help them gain back health, wealth, and time!”

A Loss in the MonaVie Family

Dear MonaVie Family,

It is with profound sadness that I communicate to you the passing of Darrell Utterbach, Royal Black Diamond distributor, MonaVie Distributor Advisory Board member, loving family man, and dear friend and colleague. Darrell passed away unexpectedly while conducting business in Seoul, Korea.

For more than two decades, Darrell has been a proponent of and respected voice for the entire Direct Selling Industry. Had it not been for Darrell visiting my home in 2004 and introducing me, Randy Larsen, and Henry Marsh to the acai berry, there likely wouldn't be a MonaVie today. We owe him a great debt of gratitude.

On behalf of the entire MonaVie family, Karree and I offer our deepest condolences at this time of great loss to Tracy, Darrell's beloved wife. His unexpected and sudden passing should be a reminder to each of us that life is precious, and that we should strive to live our lives with deeper meaning, each and every day. We are mindful of the Utterbachs’ distributor organization at this time as well, and pledge to them our continued support. On a housekeeping note, I would ask that we all please respect the privacy of the Utterbach family at this critical time.

I’d like to share with you a quote from Darrell’s own MonaVie Success Story, which I think speaks volumes about his mature perspective on life:

“MonaVie has changed my life and provided me with the freedom I've always wanted. The road to success with MonaVie has been incredible, and I celebrate the journey—not just the destination—because the journey is where the greatest personal development occurs.

Is it any wonder this good man achieved such personal and professional success?

Darrell, it is my humble belief that you may be looking upon us at this very moment and that you may even be reading this letter. I say to you, my good friend, that you have indeed completed your journey upon this earth, and I trust you have arrived Home to your supernal destination. We are better people for having known you, and miss you dearly. May the Good Lord attend to you with open arms.

God Bless,

Dallin A. Larsen
Founder, Chairman, CEO, and Friend of Darrell and Tracy Utterbach

A private memorial service will be held for immediate family. To send your condolences, please email condolences@monavie.com. Your messages will be passed along to the family. Thank you for respecting the privacy of the Utterbach family at this critical time.
