The Salt Lake City Super Regional Meeting was billed as the biggest MonaVie event of 2009, and it was certainly that as more than 23,000 people worldwide witnessed in person as well as online the day’s spectacular announcements, presentations, performances, and more.

MonaVie EMV

The thousands who descended upon the Salt Palace Convention Center came to witness one of the most anticipated moments in MonaVie history—the official launch of MonaVie EMV, a natural, healthy, long lasting energy beverage that enhances performance, supports endurance, and promotes alertness.

Indeed, the energy drink industry will never be the same now that MonaVie EMV has entered the scene. And, the word is spreading furiously across the globe!

Read all about the media buzz surrounding MonaVie EMV.

On hand to toast the next wave of MonaVie were many world-class athletes who are already incorporating MonaVie EMV into their daily routines. Snowboarder Marc Frank Montoya, wakeboarder Raimi Merritt, ATV racer William Yokley, and the entire MonaVie-Cannondale cycling team all joined MonaVie's Executive Team on the stage to celebrate the official launch of MonaVie EMV. PGA golfer Bo Van Pelt and IndyCar driver Tomas Scheckter checked in with video messages on location from the U.S. Open and Iowa Corn Indy 250, respectively.

Capping off the exhilarating moment was surprise guest Risen Tunes, a rap duo from Southern California. The group performed a composition that was written especially for the Salt Lake City Super Regional and will be officially released on June 30, “EMV—The Anthem.”

Brand New Sales Tools from MonaVie Corporate

In addition to updating MonaVie DVDs, brochures, business cards, and banners to include new MonaVie EMV, the company’s marketing department has created a brilliant, new MonaVie EMV product brochure as well as a MonaVie EMV website.

Third-party promotional pieces have also been prepared coincident with the launch of MonaVie EMV. Each person who attended the Super Regional in Salt Lake City received a free copy of Total Wellness Journal: Your Guide to Health and Wealth. The news-style journal offers a complete overview of all things MonaVie. It’s the perfect introduction to this amazing company and opportunity. Visit www.monaviemall.com in the coming days for availability.

Housed at www.monavieonthemove.com, the MonaVie Media Center includes monavietv.com and monaviephotos.com.

Health Insurance Now Available through MonaVie’s Partnership with Hays & eHealthInsurance

Chief Financial Officer Devin Thorpe made an announcement that continues MonaVie’s tradition of caring for distributors like no other company in the industry does. Through our partnership with Hays, MonaVie is working with eHealthInsurance, the leading online source for individual and family health insurance, to help connect U.S. distributors to an affordable health insurance plan that gives you the coverage you need.

eHealthInsurance is partnered with over 180 leading health insurance companies so you can find the right plan. If you’d like to learn more about individual and family plans, click here.

Also, you may contact Hays directly at 1-800-977-8860, Mon.–Fri., 5 a.m.–9 p.m. (PST); Sat.– Sun., 7 a.m.–4 p.m. Check your Virtual Office and your inbox for more information about this exciting opportunity.

Preferred Customer Program

As a company, MonaVie is always looking for ways to help distributors become successful. At the Super Regional, it was revealed that the best minds in MonaVie have come up with yet another way to champion that very cause. Beginning June 30, 2009, the new Preferred Customer Program will allow preferred customers to purchase a wide selection of MonaVie products at the wholesale price. What’s more is that now you can enroll your preferred customers from your Virtual Office. This opens the door to those people you meet every day who are only interested in consuming MonaVie products.

The Preferred Customer Program also puts more money into your wallet and gives you more personal volume. When your personally sponsored preferred customers purchase product, you receive half of the total volume from that purchase. Fifty percent of the other half of the total volume is paid out to you as a bonus (e.g., on a one case purchase with 100 PV, you receive 50 PV and US$25). Be sure to check the Compensation Plan on www.monavie.com for complete details.

The MORE Project

The morning session ended with a poignant presentation from Sergio Ponce, director of the MORE Project, and Katy Holt-Larsen, executive director of the MORE Project. Sergio became emotional as he illustrated how distributors’ donations are blessing children’s lives in Brazil. This year, distributors are contributing to the MORE Project at a rate of more than US$130,000 per month—less than US$100,000 away from the organization’s goal to generate US$220,000 in monthly distributor donations.

Have a Heart Campaign

In addition to making AutoShip donations, distributors can contribute to the MORE Project simply by enjoying a favorite MonaVie product through the Have a Heart campaign. For every case of MonaVie Pulse that is purchased, a dollar is donated to the MORE Project. Every bit helps, and this is just one way you can get involved.

The MORE Store

Another simple way to give is by purchasing apparel, survival kits, banners, books, jewelry, and much more from www.themorestore.org. All proceeds go directly to the MORE Project in an effort to change more lives and restore more families. At www.themorestore.org, you’ll also be able to catch up on the latest heartwarming stories from the MORE Project by reading Katy’s and Sergio’s blog.

Record MORE Project Donations at Salt Lake City Super Regional

What sets MonaVie apart from other companies in the industry is our distributors’ willingness to give. And, never have MonaVie distributors given more in a single day than on June 20, 2009, in Salt Lake City. MonaVie announced that Super Regional attendees had donated a record total of US$1,100,000 to the MORE Project by the meeting’s end.

Incentive Trips Preview

The afternoon session kicked off with a preview of Black Diamond Celebration 2010—a retreat to the Four Seasons Bora Bora in Tahiti. The trip runs April 26–May 2, 2010, with a qualification deadline of February 26, 2010.

If that weren’t enough to motivate distributors, the audience was given a sneak peak at Black Diamond Celebration 2011. In 2011, MonaVie will celebrate its seventh year of existence. There’s no better way to celebrate seven wonderful years than to embark on an incentive trip package that was dubbed “MonaVie’s Seven Wonders of the World.” Beginning with a South African safari in 2011, MonaVie will take Black Diamond Executives and above to seven wonderful world locales over the course of seven years.

New Royal Black Diamond Presentations—Ken and Carol Porter & Scott and Sue Olsen

Certainly planning to be present on those Black Diamond Celebration trips are MonaVie’s newest Royal Black Diamonds, Ken and Carol Porter and Scott and Sue Olsen. Each distributorship was honored for their advancements at the Super Regional with US$100,000 checks.

Telling his fellow distributors that he can’t imagine a better life than the one he’s got, Ken Porter offered these simple words of wisdom: “Financial independence comes from your passions, not your pensions.”

Scott Olsen counseled everyone watching to believe in the product, the company’s management, the industry, and themselves. “These are four key components that must be in place for us to succeed,” he said.

Brig and Lita Hart’s Crowne Black Diamond Documentary

The day’s final presentation belonged to Brig and Lita Hart, whose Crowne Black Diamond documentary was featured. Lita urged the crowd to celebrate life and be passionate about sharing MonaVie with others. Brig asked those in attendance and watching worldwide if they are willing to fight for their dreams. “If you will dream it and believe it,” he said, “we will help you achieve it.”

MonaVie EMV Met with Unprecedented Sales Demand

We are pleased to report unprecedented demand for MonaVie EMV during the first 24 hours of its pre-order period.

One of our goals with the launch of this exciting new energy drink was to get it in the hands of as many of our distributors as possible.

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."
