Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Eric and Amy Klein

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

"It means a lot to our family to qualify for Cruise for Gold, especially Amy. She has been doing so much to help us succeed with MonaVie, and I am so excited for her to get a break to enjoy herself.

"Qualifying for the trip is very simple, and you have heard it a hundred times: duplicate everything that is working for others. It is that simple. Plug into your upline. Do not do anything differently. This seems so obvious, but knowing and doing are two different things. Master the basics. As the old poker saying goes, 'five minutes to learn, but a lifetime to master.' Just keep plugging away by sharing the plan to everyone and never quitting.

"The last thing you need to succeed in MonaVie or anything is an indestructible personality. Successful people realize the game is never over until they win. Just keep playing until you win. Successful people truly believe they can have, be, or do anything they want. If you can do those few things, then you will come to realize the champion inside you. The only thing stopping you is you."

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Mike and Kelli Bonomo

Congratulations to Mike and Kelli Bonomo from Herscher, Illinois, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"Mike and I started this business with one motive: we loved the product, and we didn't want to pay for it! The idea of starting another business was not at the top of our list. Mike works full time for the state of Illinois, and I was a hairdresser four days a week as well as running an in-home personal training and nutrition company. In addition, we are also promoters of an amateur fight organization called Fire Extreme Fighting that features amateur level MMA fighters. On average, we do 4–5 events a year.

"Greater than all of those obligations are the loves of our lives, our children, whom are involved in several extracurricular activities. Needless to say, the idea of even starting another 'project' was inconceivable. We just had 'no time' like everyone else on the planet! However, when we paid for our product within the first month of being involved, we decided that a few extra bucks in our pocket may help with gas and vacations. We hit the level of Silver in six weeks and knew that we could never turn back.

"Our children became just as involved in tasting parties as we were. They would pour the juice and even explain to potential consumers which juices were for what. It became a family project. So to us, qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip means so much more than hitting the next level. It means proving to our children that with great sacrifice comes great reward, a lesson we will continue to instill into their lives.

"We have developed some lifelong relationships with some truly awesome and amazing people—our second family, our MonaVie team. Our upline Blue Diamond Jerry Dowd, Diamond Jeff Delany, and Ruby Stephanie McCormick have become the most motivational and inspiring people that God could have placed into our lives. They, along with our extraordinary downline of ambitious, likeminded, and goal-oriented people, give Mike and I the hope that we can continue to inspire each and every one of them that the sky is the limit. This can be done!

"We pray over our lives and our business. We ask God to be at the forefront of what is to come of MonaVie. We have learned to place our trust and our success in his will. We know that God's timing is the best timing, and nothing can compete with that! We know what we have in MonaVie, and we are determined to fulfill our dreams and those of our family. Our daily activities include not only staying plugged into a system, but a system of people. We are running with the runners. We have learned that the hard way, but we are helping our downline hit their goals. Mike and I are both very passionate about helping people. The hardest part of this business is people, and yet the easiest part of this business is people! If you can figure them out, that's half the battle. The struggle comes when you are trying to help the ones that don't want help.

"We listen to several motivational speakers including Rex Crain, Myles Monroe, and Joyce Meyer to name a few. Your personal growth will determine how well your business will grow. These are all things that we do on a daily basis, as well as staying plugged into every big event and conference call, and staying up to date on all the tips and nuggets that you can learn from anyone that is in this business.

"We really added in more one-on-ones. We realized that our success rate was definitely higher when we took the time to meet individually with people. This is absolutely something that we stepped up and will continue to do, as we believe that it has helped us build so many relationships. We have also started holding more frequent meetings at our home where we all get together to talk about new things, re-motivate one another, make phone calls, and really build relationships. These are the people that we are going to be going to Hawaii with, so we want to get to know them better!

"Persevere, work hard, stay motivated, and stay plugged in. You have to do something every day. Help your organization build depth because this becomes depth under you. If you want to be successful, you have to put others before yourself. 1 Peter 4:10 says that 'Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.' We live these words through our business. You have to be willing to help those that God brings into your path with your gifts and talents; however, you also have to be willing to accept the help of those that want to do the same for you. If you work your business as a group of goal-oriented people out to make a difference in as many lives as you can, God will bless that. You have to be a blessing in someone's life in order for God to bless you.

"Mike and I will continue to help our downline reach levels and build their businesses. We will continue to do one-on-ones and tasting parties. We will continue having everyone over to our home for a distributor night where we may all work on phone calls or setting up dates for the weeks to come, motivating each other, staying plugged into each other, and keeping new distributors plugged in to get them off to the right start. We have been involved with MonaVie now about a year and eight months. We have made some mistakes, and we really feel like we are learning to teach those that are new not to make those same mistakes!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Murray and Sylvia Galbraith

Congratulations to Murray and Sylvia Galbraith from Temecula, California, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"Reaching Gold level was very rewarding, and we couldn't have done it without a great team. And, to follow it up with qualifying for the cruise was one of those moments where you quietly jump up, fist pump, and yell at the top of a whisper so you don't wake anyone up just after 11 o'clock Friday night! It means that we can immerse ourselves in the MonaVie family for the whole time on the cruise with little else to do and build a greater belief of going to Diamond and beyond.

"We qualified by contacting people on our list consistently and moving on to the next one when it was obvious that the timing wasn't right for someone. We believe strongly that we have a solution and a vehicle when the time is right for them. Fitting MonaVie into the nooks and crannies of the day is something that anyone can do if they really want to. Having our upline Blue Diamond Byron Moles helping us continually through encouragement, finding solutions, and doing three-way calls made all the difference for us.

"We prayed to God for help that He would put the right people in front of us at the right time and place. We believed that if we were supposed to go on the cruise, the numbers would be there. Then, we just got more focused. Byron helped build the belief that we could get it done with very limited time left, so we kept the faith and pushed for it. Our goal is to put a minimum of five couples on the next cruise by focusing all our efforts in helping them build their teams to Gold and beyond."

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Jeremy and Mindy Everts

Congratulations to Jeremy and Mindy Everts from Farmington, Utah, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"To qualify for the Cruise for Gold was a test to prove to ourselves and our team that we can accomplish what we set out to in this business if we work together.

"Some of our day-to-day activities include focusing on contacting those that we work with—prospects and team members—to make sure the right steps are being taken to achieve goals. Basically we were making sure to follow up with everyone involved at the time. We didn't really change the way we do business; we just focused on doing more of it and made a point to make things happen the way they should be happening all along.

"Get with your team and upline. Make a plan, and then work your plan. Tell yourself that you will do it and that it's going to happen no matter what. If you think that it's going to happen, then it's going to happen. You have to remain positive in all that you do, or the negative side will win and you will quit. And, that's the thing you can't do. Never quit!

"Reach down to those that are striving to build their businesses and help them build. If you help them, you are going to be helping yourself as well; so, why not help build someone else's dream so that you both can be happy!

"We are looking forward to two things: 1.) The opportunity to have the leadership training that we need to continue to help others build their businesses stronger, and 2.) The chance to soak in the rewards of being a part of a wonderful business that rewards you for working hard!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifiers—Gary and Laura Giese

Congratulations to Gary and Laura Giese from Prince George, British Columbia, Canada, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what they had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"A longtime, trusted friend introduced this to us as a business opportunity. We got involved mostly because of the product in the beginning and came to see the business potential more recently. The product is second to none in our opinion. The business opportunity is the right thing at the right time with the right people. It is the greatest opportunity that most of us will see in our lifetime! It will get to $20 billion and beyond!

"We were able to find success by following our upline Black Diamonds Mark and Tami Crawford and by staying focused and consistent. The Cruise for Gold is an awesome reward for generating an income in our own business. It allows for stories to be told, to let others know that this is working! It also means sun in February! (We don't get that in Northern British Columbia.)

"Our advice is to make a list, contact the prospects, share the opportunity, and follow through with them. Get them started by helping them go Star, and help everyone duplicate this process. Follow your active upline's advice even if you don't understand why.

"We are looking forward to fun, sun, and getting some certification for MVP! Oh yeah, and the food! Thank you, MonaVie!"

Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Leandro Castellanos

Congratulations to Leandro Castellanos from New York, New York, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here's what he had to say about qualifying for the cruise…

"I was introduced to MonaVie by a childhood friend and MonaVie Ruby Executive Marco Espinal. I started my career with MonaVie having no prior experience in community commerce, just the motivation to aspire for a better lifestyle. Once Marco and I discussed my business plan, I knew this was the right move for me. I love to help people, and that's what this business is: it's about building and moving forward with people who share your same vision.

"I work as a security technician in the downtown NYC area. I love my job, but my real passion is coaching little league baseball. I've been coaching with my father and brothers for the last eight years. MonaVie has helped me sponsor two of the teams in my league, and I have plans to sponsor more. MonaVie has jumpstarted my true passion again.

"My journey to Gold Executive has been a life changer. I have met people I never would've met before and have surrounded myself with positive, likeminded people that want a more meaningful life. I am grateful for my MonaVie family; I couldn't have done it without them. I look forward to sharing more experiences on the upcoming trips with the rest of my team!"
