Although just beginning its pre-enrollment, the Company seems to be creating a buzz.

Industry sources believe it is building two divisions, MinervaPlace.com and MinervaRewards.com, one for content and the other for the opportunity—providing one site of smart content related to weight management, fitness and wellness, as well as beauty, style and fashion and the other an opportunity to earn income for referrals to the community and from advertising revenue generated by the site.

Word in the Street ex. Herbalife icon Larry Thompson will be on board.

  1. Good find Ted! I worked directly in the past with several of these gents. SOLID leaders and honest as the day is long. Posted about this yesterday about this on our blog: momofactor.com/company-management/industry-veterans-to-launch-huge-online-play

  2. This is the first real NEW idea that has hit Network Marketing is a looooong time!!! It is a brilliant concept….with NO competition!! Gustin, Culver, Thompson, Kossert, Baloff, Charchuk, et al, have hit this one OUT OF THE PARK!!! I would hate to have to compete against this model with normal network marketing set-ups! It would be tantamount to taking a butter knife to a gun fight!!! This line up of leaders reminds me of the 1992 US Olympic basketball “Dream Team”, and fortunately, for potential distributors, they lead with integrity of character being paramount!!!

  3. This MLM has some interesting features Ted. I took the liberty of adding a link to the pre-enrollment through my name above (no cost) in case anyone wants to take a look/grab a seat before it goes live. I’ll sit on the fence until we see the full picture at launch but this could be a bit of new way forward, who knows?

  4. In my opinion this company is well poised & will be taking social media/ e- commerence & internet marketing to the next level. They are positioning to be the #1 on line destination for women that is multibillion dollar industry. With the multiple profit centers they have, this should be a home run. I?m in as I see a real serious opportunity here.


  5. Looks like they?re taking internet publishing & e-commerce to the next level. The quality of people involved with this should secure it?s success & be a home run. The whole social media venue is a brilliant idea. There addressing a multibillion dollar industry that has several profit centers. I see opportunity here, I?m in.

  6. This is going to be unlike anything else anyone has seen or done before. This business isn’t right for everyone, but if it’s right for you, don’t hesitate to enroll now. Not only could you earn a very respectable income – the information you will receive daily will provide you with the level of health and well being that you desire. H
