MonaVie: Safety in a Storm

Amid these troubled economic times, many people are worried about their jobs. MonaVie distributors, however, have no reason to worry about their MonaVie incomes, even as the troubled times bring turmoil to markets around the world. In fact, turbulence brings opportunity for distributors as more and more people are now looking to supplement or replace their incomes.

People may ask you: Why is MonaVie different? Or, why won't MonaVie be impacted adversely by the current economic crisis, which most people now recognize as a recession?

The answer to this question is found in the underlying cause of the global economic crisis: too much debt. Almost all debt in the global economy is packaged up and sold in chunks, in a process known as securitization. These chunks of debt, a variety of derivative securities, have nearly stopped trading completely, bringing lending of all sorts to a stop. All of this is a result of over leveraging in a variety of industries—from residential lending to leveraged financing for corporations.

For companies that require debt financing to operate, friction in the credit markets represents a near fatal risk. Banks are taking every opportunity to reduce their lending exposure by cutting off or reducing advances to marginal customers. For those companies that need to borrow money to cover inventory purchases or payroll, the credit crunch threatens their ability to continue operating.

MonaVie is different because we don't need to borrow money to buy products or to pay distributors. Instead, MonaVie generates cash to fund all of its obligations, while still achieving profitability. MonaVie has no debt, and MonaVie distributors have nothing to worry about.

We hope you continue to find safe harbor with MonaVie during the storm of these troubled economic times.

MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamonds—Gene and Becky Bradley

Congratulations to Gene and Becky Bradley from Fremont, California, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...

"We thank God for bringing this opportunity to us at just the right time. Thank you to our family and friends and to new friends who we've been blessed to meet during this journey. You caught the vision and joined this incredible team. We recognize that nothing can be accomplished without a great team.

"Our advice is really simple: follow your successful upline's system. It's a simple business when you get in line. We didn't do that initially, and we hit a plateau around Silver. Once we decided to follow our upline's system, we adopted a no-excuses mentality. We put our name all over the team calendar for tasting parties. What we lacked in experience, we made up for in effort and enthusiasm. This helped us advance through the ranks at a much faster pace. I believe Crowne Black Diamond Executive Brig Hart said it best: 'Experience is good as long as it's someone else's; then, it's wisdom!'

"We still have goals to reach in MonaVie. Foremost among them is to help others achieve their dreams through this opportunity. With servants' hearts, we will continue to help our team achieve their dreams. We also look forward to serving in Brazil next year with the MORE Project. Carpe diem!"

MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamond—Melissa Turner

Congratulations to Melissa Turner from Corona, California, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what she had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...

"When my real estate broker, Rob Alwin, introduced MonaVie to me, I became extremely excited. As a struggling real estate agent, I was looking for another way to create wealth. I quickly fell in love with the MonaVie product and opportunity.

"My journey with MonaVie has been very exciting. I have met many great people and have grown as a businesswoman and person. One of my favorite things about MonaVie is that it is an equal opportunity for all distributors. When I signed up at the age of 20, I was nervous that I wouldn't be taken seriously by the people I approached; however, I learned that the product and opportunity speak for themselves.

"MonaVie is really something that anyone with a dream and a little ambition can do. I stand by the company motto—Drink it. Feel it. Share it.TM"

MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamonds—Jason and Kari Williams

Congratulations to Jason and Kari Williams from Bakersfield, California, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what they had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...

"MonaVie has changed our lives forever. Who would have ever thought that a delicious fruit beverage could give us an opportunity to impact families all over the world? We feel extremely blessed and thank God and MonaVie for this amazing opportunity, which we believe impacts lives physically, financially, and spiritually.

"When we realized what we had with MonaVie, we started sharing the juice with all of our friends and family. We plugged into our upline's system, booked tasting parties, and helped the people in our organization achieve their goals.

"The key to a successful MonaVie business is to spend time with each new person you sponsor. Don't just tell them what to do; help them do it. We will never again see an opportunity like MonaVie. Believe in yourself, believe in the company and product, and dream a big dream. Whatever you choose to believe, you will achieve. Take your eyes off yourself and put them onto others, and you will be blessed."

Emerald Extravaganza Recap

MonaVie proved yet again that no company in the direct selling industry rewards its distributors quite like MonaVie at the recently concluded Emerald Extravaganza.

Distributors arrived at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, on Wednesday, November 12, ready for a fun-filled vacation at the "Happiest Place on Earth." Awaiting them in their hotel rooms were special MonaVie gifts, including brand new MP4 players, commemorative Emerald Extravaganza backpacks, and a bottle of MonaVie Active. The event officially kicked off that night with a lavish welcome dinner at the Animal Kingdom's Harambe Village. Distributors spent Thursday hopping between Disney World's amazing theme parks and enjoying the rides and atmosphere.

Friday began with an extravagant breakfast meeting at Epcot. MonaVie Executives spoke to the company's budding leaders, congratulating them for their achievements in MonaVie and encouraging them to strive for even greater success. Following the breakfast, distributors and their guests had the opportunity to meet and greet with some of Disney's world-famous characters. Then, it was time once again to enjoy the parks.

Later that night, distributors gathered one more time for a farewell dinner at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Dining outdoors, the group was in for an unexpected surprise just before rain forced an early end to the meal. Watching a large projection screen mounted on one of the surrounding Hollywood Studios buildings, the party witnessed the live launch of space shuttle Endeavour from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Seconds after lift-off, the actual space shuttle soared overhead directly behind the screen. It was a breathtaking way to end another unforgettable MonaVie trip.

MonaVie’s Newest Blue Diamonds—Eric and Jina Iwahiro

Congratulations to Eric and Jina Iwahiro from Clovis, 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 can be summed up in three words—fun, fun, fun! Like many people, we got involved with MonaVie strictly for the health benefits of the juice. When we realized we could earn some income by doing what came naturally to us (sharing), we set out to build a tiny side business with a goal of drinking the juice for free. A funny thing happened along the way: The product worked for the people we shared it with, and now we are Blue Diamonds.

"Our success in MonaVie is directly related to the team that we work with. We are surrounded by incredible people who love and care for each other. We not only share the same goals and dreams, but we're willing to do something to achieve them. When we began this journey, we made a commitment to lock arms and move forward no matter what challenges we face. We have done just that. Without our team, we could accomplish nothing.

"The unique thing about MonaVie is that everyone wants you to succeed. Coming from corporate America, it was difficult to understand why others would want us to do better than them. Our upline has always supported our efforts and celebrated our successes. The friends you make are friends for life.

"The MonaVie opportunity has been a blessing to all of us who have gotten involved and are doing the work it takes to grow the business. It's truly amazing what a couple of hours, four or five nights a week has done for our family's future. We thank God every day for putting this opportunity in front of us and giving us the vision to see it.

"The best advice I can give to anyone who wants to succeed is this: Instead of looking for the next superstar to come into your business, you be the superstar! Follow in the footsteps of those who have succeeded before you. Remain humble, and focus on serving others. When your team's success is more important to you than your own, you will have what it takes to build a big MonaVie business. Many people will start this race, but few will finish it. Choose to be a finisher and success will follow. Mahalo to our team!"
