MonaVie's Newest Hawaiian Blue Diamonds—Maranda and Dan Williams

Congratulations to Maranda and Dan Williams from Celina, Texas, on achieving the rank of Hawaiian Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone…

"The road to Hawaiian Blue Diamond has been amazing and blessed. We have discovered so many things about ourselves and about people. Our marriage has grown stronger, and our family has grown closer. Maranda and I had both been in corporate America for over a decade and didn't realize that 'golden handcuffs' had shackled us and our dreams. Then, Corbin and Holly Roush showed us the MonaVie opportunity.

"We were both very skeptical at first. When we finally looked at the science and opportunity, we realized this was an opportunity of a lifetime. From that point forward we locked arms with our friends who shared the same dreams and never looked back.

"When we finally got started, we were very busy with our three-month-old and three-year-old kids. Maranda worked full time, and I was working more than 70 hours per week. We had also just purchased an exotic deer ranch. We didn't need something else to fill our calendar. We needed freedom, and that is what we found in MonaVie. Now we enjoy a lifestyle that we could never have imagined in our wildest dreams.

"Too many people get comfortable in their day-to-day lives, and they stop dreaming. We didn't want to wake up one day and see that we spent 40 hours per week for 40 years working to retire with only 40 percent of our salaries. That was exactly where we were headed if we didn't do something different. Great opportunities only come around once or twice in a lifetime. We ask people to decide if this is their first or second opportunity.

"The key to success in this business is setting goals and being consistent in your positive activity toward reaching your goals. We set goals as a family and decided how we would reward ourselves when we met our goals. Our children recognized that there would be some sacrifices along the way, but the rewards would be so much greater. Teaching our children the concept of delayed gratification has been very rewarding, especially considering the 'immediate gratification' society in which we live. We will never forget their faces when we told them we had become Hawaiian Blue Diamonds. They were so excited because they knew all of our family's sacrifices and hard work had paid off.

"There is no glass ceiling in MonaVie! It doesn't matter your age, race, religion, education, or gender. If you have a big enough dream and never give up, you will succeed. We tell people just getting into the business that the only difference between us and them is time and effort. Find the people who see the opportunity like you do, and then lock arms and run. Serve as many people as you can. Don't forget to enjoy the journey. Keep God first, your family second, and MonaVie third. Thank you, for creating a company that allows ordinary people to live extraordinary lives!"

MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamond—Joe Dobransky

Congratulations to Joe Dobransky from Allen, Texas, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what he had to say on reaching this impressive milestone…

"My road to Blue Diamond has been fantastic. MonaVie has made a positive impact on my family. I have made so many new lifelong friends. This business is amazing in so many different aspects, from personal growth to just getting out there and helping someone on my team move his or her business forward.

"What helped me be successful is doing something every day to move my business forward whether I wanted to or not. Some days you are more motivated than others. On those off days you need to dig in and get some work done.

"To be successful in MonaVie, you must help your team. This is a business for people who like helping people–a pay-it-forward business. You must take the focus off of yourself and put it on those who trusted you enough to get involved in this opportunity.

"I put off getting into MonaVie for seven months because I did not understand direct selling. One day my friend Dan Williams looked me in the eye and said, 'Once or twice in your lifetime an opportunity comes along. I am telling you as your friend, this is one of those times.' I finally stopped and listened to him!

"Treat this as an opportunity of a lifetime. Work hard and stay positive. When you sponsor someone, help them get started right by plugging them into the system."

MonaVie Moves AutoShips to Saturday to Ensure Group Volume

As many of you know, having visible access to your group volume is part of the day-to-day management of your MonaVie business. We also know that group volume derived from AutoShip orders is a significant component of your success. Unfortunately, this volume may not be entirely visible due to the fact that many AutoShips run toward the end of each week.

In an effort to ensure AutoShip volume is available early in the week and to more quickly resolve any problems associated with individual AutoShips (i.e., unexpected credit card expiration or declines), MonaVie has initiated an effort to transition to “Saturday only” AutoShip runs, which will essentially make AutoShip volume visible at the beginning of each week.

Please note that this early transition to "Saturday only" AutoShips will currently apply only to new enrollees. For now, existing distributor AutoShip profiles will remain unchanged.

We would also like to remind new distributors that in order to maintain an "active" status, your first AutoShip order may arrive anywhere between 22 and 28 days from the date the AutoShip was first established. Thereafter, AutoShips should arrive every 28 days as expected.

At MonaVie, we believe "Saturday only" AutoShips to be a very positive enhancement that will allow you to more proactively manage your MonaVie business and help you achieve rank advancement goals.

We commend each of you on your tremendous contribution to the good name of MonaVie, and wish you every success as you realize your own dreams and bless the lives of many others in the process.

Thank you for being exceptional!
