Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Kevin and Tara Fatland

Congratulations to Kevin and Tara Fatland from Frankfort, Illinois, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"For us, this is a long-deserved vacation where we can leave the kids behind with the grandparents. We are looking forward to having fun and fulfillment in the sun while our house is under snow.

"Momentum is a feeling, and it's your job to keep feeling it. Feel good now, and let people have their own opinions. Speaking of feelings, you are more likely to act yourself into feeling than to feel yourself into action. If you don't 'feel like' calling a neighbor, call one. Then, you'll feel like it.

"When we contact people, we talk about their dreams and wants. Then, we focus and support those we've sponsored. Minimize the talking, and maximize the actions."

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Gary and Ann Kearney

Congratulations to Gary and Ann Kearney from Wickliffe, Kentucky, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"A friend stopped by our home with a bottle of MonaVie Active. I immediately thought he was here to talk to me about a business, and I told him I was not interested. I had been through some serious health challenges, and he told me he wanted to talk to me about my health and how MonaVie could help. He gave me a bottle to try. I was so skeptical I put the bottle on a shelf in my office, and it set there for nine months. I was having so much joint pain one night, and my wife insisted that I try the juice. I felt the results!

"I called my friend and told him I would enroll so I could buy the product at cost. He drove six hours the next day to enroll me. Because of the results I felt, I got very passionate about this wonderful product and began to share it with everyone. By sharing the product with others and helping our team do the same, we reached the rank of Ruby Executive.

"We were praying for help to move to the next level, and our prayers were answered on a phone call we received from someone we did not know—Hawaiian Blue Diamonds Steve and Linda Kampouroglou. Steve flew from Florida to Paducah, Kentucky, and told us that we could move on in the business and they would help guide our team.

"Because of Steve and Linda, we qualified for the cruise and are working to help others on our team qualify as well. It will make the cruise even more special to have our team members with us! We are excited and looking forward to spending time with Steve and Linda, Brig and Lita, and all the great leaders in MonaVie!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Terry and Lynn Mudge

Congratulations to Terry and Lynn Mudge from London, Ontario, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"We are so excited and thankful to be going on the cruise this January! After all, we live in Canada, eh. Our winters are very long, cold, and snowy.

"I was first introduced to MonaVie by my instructor Melody Gilmore at my local health club in March 2009. She was all excited and invited me to a tasting party. I said I would go, but I didn't. I said no six times. I even stopped going to her classes because it seemed like she was stalking me—the crazy juice lady. Thank you for not giving up on me, Mel!

"On April 3, 2009, I was invited to a hotel meeting to meet a man named Rob Alwin. I watched an amazing MonaVie video, listened to Rob's story, and got fired up! I became a distributor that night and ordered six cases of MonaVie Active because they said it was the best for joint health. Within four days, I became a Star! I sponsored my dad on my left and my friend, Ryan, on my right.

"The way I built my business is I shut the Time Villain off (TV). Also, I never leave home without my juice. Every week, I set a goal to do at least two one-on-ones in the comfort of someone's home and then invite them to a tasting party. I never leave a tasting party without booking another tasting.

"My goal is to help as many people become Stars—and make Stars—as possible. I keep in touch with my downline on a daily basis making at least 10 calls per day. We are always firing up and inspiring each other with information and stories. We are so thankful for our upline leaders Mike and Kelly-Sue McCormick, Al and Sherry Huva, and Steve and Gina Merritt. We appreciate all your wisdom!

"We are always teaching and training the new people on the Virtual Office by showing them where to get information for their questions. I'm not much into reading, so I listen to CDs on a daily basis whether it's in my truck or in my home. We promote all MonaVie events. We can't wait to hear about all the new and exciting things to come for all of us at the MonaVie 2.0 event this January in Dallas. Events like those are non-negotiable. Those that show up go up!

"We are looking forward to seeing all your smiling faces and hearing your stories on the cruise!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Ed and Steph Cook

Congratulations to Ed and Steph Cook from Reno, Nevada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"We hit the level of Gold Executive a short three months after taking on the business in the fall of 2010. But, at that time we didn't quite understand that MonaVie is all about helping the folks that trusted you enough to sign up to find their two people in order to start being successful.

"A wise Black Diamond, Charlie Kalb, shared with us that we had about 90 days to get our folks making money or else they would click off. I still remember the hollow feeling as that statement echoed in my head. Unfortunately, this warning came to fruition as, one by one, people found excuses to not do the business and eventually rationalized giving up the very thing that was helping them feel better. Even after this happened, we never gave up on the business, vowed to correct our previous mistakes, and waited for our turn at bat again.

"We knew that this fall would be our time to shine and, sure enough, it was like the perfect storm of amazing occurrences that got us to this point. When the Cruise for Gold promotion was announced, Steph and I pictured ourselves on that ship with our team and with the rest of our MonaVie friends and family. To reinforce this, I printed a handful of the promotional graphics and put them in strategic places all over our home and constantly pictured us with our feet propped up sitting on lounge chairs overlooking the sea. We only concentrated on doing activities to help our team and made some new friends along the way. By serving others, we were blessed with the rewards of our labor!

"Earning a spot on the Cruise for Gold was not something that we did alone; it was a complete team win! We would like to thank everyone who had a hand in this exciting milestone. It began with the Team Building BBQ that our Black Diamond uplines, Mick and Vick Karshner, held to kick off the season right. We also could not have done this without our sponsors, Mike and Shelley ‘Ruby' Robins, who were unwaveringly committed to us—even when we told them we were not interested in doing the business for over two years! ‘No' truly means ‘not right now.' Never, ever give up on someone because when their time is right, they will see the value.

"Most of all, a million thanks to our downline team, including Ron and Kathleen Howard who are Bronzes and soon-to-be Golds. You stepped it up a notch just when we needed it the most and hit a grand slam! Now it is our turn to get you on the cruise, and we promise not to rest until you are all there with us!

"Trust us: it works! Picture yourself on the Cruise for Gold. Ask for abundance, and follow in the footsteps of the leaders who have already made it. Steph and I can't wait to see all of you in January 2012 on the cruise. Meet us on the Promenade Deck at sunset, pull up a lounge chair, and join us to watch the waves go by!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Andrée and Ven Côté

Congratulations to Andrée and Ven Côté from Beaumont, Alberta, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"To be joining a group of winners and to learn more about MonaVie is very exciting to both of us. We can hardly wait until January. For us, it means getting out of the cold, meeting new people, and enjoying new experiences. Wow!

"Some of the day-to-day activities we do include listening more and more to our upline, attending more tasting parties, and sharing the products as often as we can. In the process, we signed up more people. We also spent more time training with our upline and making ourselves available to our new distributors.

"We are now more committed to learning all there is to learn about MonaVie because our objectives are well past the Ruby level. We want Diamond, and we will do whatever it takes to go to Maui!

"At the I Am MonaVie Tour meeting in Edmonton, we heard about a lot of new things coming in 2012. We cannot wait to hear more about the MonaVie Loyalty Program and how it works. We understand that it will be very useful to reactivate people that have given up, and we believe that it will help to keep people on AutoShip.

"We believe that there is so much more to come. We share the products with our daughters, grandsons, friends, and anyone willing to try it and listen to our excitement. We believe that it is not an issue of affordability; the fact is nobody can afford to not drink it. Everyone needs to drink and feel MonaVie. We are Andrée and Ven Côté, and we are MonaVie!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Edie Minder

Congratulations to Edie Minder from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip. Here’s what she had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

“Thank you, MonaVie, for allowing me the opportunity to qualify for this cruise. I am excited to be with my team and meet new people with similar dreams and ambitions. The most exciting part will be learning from corporate the power of MVP, and how that can help us in helping others. There are so many that need our help, and we have the tools with MonaVie to change lives for the better. It will be a win-win, fun time for all!

“Qualifying for the cruise, I believe, was the result of consistent effort. I work to build my team on a daily basis. Weekly conference calls, teaching the value of attending events, empowering our leaders, and working toward personal growth have all played a big part in moving myself and others forward.

“My advice for success in this business is to: stay focused, replace any negative self-talk with positive truth, and never give up. The only ones who fail are the ones who quit.”
