Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Eric and Teri Basa
Congratulations to Eric and Teri Basa from Carson City, Nevada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here’s what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…
“We got involved with MonaVie because our dear friend, Tom, asked us. We had been involved with this industry for many, many years and had absolutely no interest in the business side of it; but, because Tom is the most loyal friend anyone could ever have, we signed up on one case of MonaVie Active and no AutoShip. We believed we would finish the case of juice and that would be the end of it. Wow! We had no idea that this one case was the beginning of the most incredible journey and amazing friendships.
“For almost a year, we kept waiting for the computers to go down, for the site to quit working, for us not to get paid on time, and for the company to go under. That had been our experience in the past. We can’t begin to tell you the excitement we felt when we finally realized that the MonaVie leadership was strong and that they were forward thinking for our benefit and they cared what their distributors thought. Dallin and his team never cease to amaze us. We feel so blessed to have the honor of being part of this company.
“The team we have built with MonaVie has learned to work together as a team and utilize each other’s strengths. The friendships that have come out of this journey will last forever, and our children, Brandon and Erica, have also learned about hard work, teamwork, and sacrifice. The reason for our family’s success is an upline and leadership that continues to gain knowledge and progress towards the future. It’s also because of a downline that has been willing to unselfishly do whatever it takes to help each other accomplish their goals and dreams. We have learned that you not only lean on your upline, you can also learn from your team that is in the trenches with you. That daily activity has been our biggest blessing.
“When our family hit Gold, we learned a very valuable lesson. We had decided to share the products with everyone we knew just so we could get on this cruise. We believed that this wasn’t really the way we build the business, but it would get us on the cruise (silly us). What we really found out was that by sharing the product with people that were on our ‘chicken list,’ many didn’t know what we did and many didn’t know anything about MonaVie.
“After they purchased to help us, they loved the product and we now have friends and new friends who want to be sponsored and build their own businesses, or who want to become customers and receive MonaVie on a monthly basis. What started as a goal ended with learning that this is the correct way to build our business. All the things we have been learning since we started with MonaVie (make a list, contact, set a date, etc.) were exactly what we did to make it to Gold and get on this cruise. Now, it is so much easier to share because we aren’t scared to talk to people anymore.
“Going on this cruise is going to be such a blessing because we are going to get to spend time with our dear, dear friends (all seven couples) who made it with us. It has also been a great lesson for our children because they see that the reward equals the sacrifice. What a blessing!”
