Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Ron Allen
Congratulations to Ron Allen from Burns, Tennessee, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what he had to say about qualifying for the cruise…
"I have been a military medic of some type for almost 30 years, and I now work as a public safety officer (police, fire, and EMT-paramedic). At the time I was introduced to MonaVie, I had gained quite a bit of weight and had significant joint-health issues. My uncle and I were building a deck on my house, and MonaVie was the last thing I wanted to hear about. When we quit for the night, my uncle got me to watching some of the MonaVie videos. One video in particular helped me decide to try the juice for my health. I had never been involved in network marketing and had no plans to get involved.
"After three weeks of using MonaVie Active, I woke up realizing that I was experiencing some amazing health benefits. I had Guard Drill in April 2009 and mentioned the acai berry to a couple of doctors in my unit. They signed up instantly, and it scared me; I thought I had said something wrong! I was excited now, and I was on the phone calling everyone I could think of. As soon as I got home, I signed up three more over the phone! All I did for the next few months was pour juice (one-on-ones) and put people in the business. I didn't even know about area meetings, but I had been doing the MonaVie University trainings online. I recommend that all new distributors do those classes.
"I met my upline Ruby and Black Diamond for the first time at an open meeting after being in the business for five months. (I live quite a distance from them.) In 2010, I flew to Kansas City, Missouri, and met with a friend I had enrolled over the phone. We heard the Kalbs, Roushes, and Curtises all in one day. That was a major event for me. The no-nonsense style of Charlie and Matt reminded me too much of myself.
"For the next year, all I did was pour and enroll; however, very few wanted to work the business, and it took me longer than I would have liked to get to Silver and Gold. One night, my sponsors (William and Kathy Koffman), our upline Ruby (Leslie Vannucci), and I decided we needed to start promoting on an organized, regular basis starting with a monthly area meeting. The consistency of regular meetings helps others promote MonaVie, and that helps them advance. We are able to work as a team and share ideas. These meetings are also a way to invite new prospects who are kind of shy about having tasting parties or even doing one-on-ones.
"When MonaVie RVL became available, I was chomping at the bit to try it. Since the juice made me feel as good as it did, I knew RVL had to have some of the properties I had come to expect from MonaVie. Where I work, we have a 'Biggest Loser' competition every year from January to March. I won this year with 37 pounds lost in 12 weeks. That turned a few heads, and now I can truly be a testimony because my co-workers see the results. I did a filmed demonstration at a meeting and put it on Facebook and YouTube. I became a Gold Executive three weeks later.
"My advice is to promote the juice to your family and friends first! I have heard this from Matt Curtis, Charlie Kalb, Rob Alwin, Jim Rohn, and others. When you start making money in MonaVie but you have never introduced the opportunity to your friends and family, you will become the 'less-liked' family member. When all the Black Diamonds you meet or hear say the same thing, listen! I tell everyone I can about MonaVie and promote it everywhere I drive. When you believe in a product and use it yourself, it will sell. People will see your enthusiasm and passion, and they will see the results. I feel the sky is the limit with MonaVie!"
