A worried high ranked MonaVie distributor shared below memo to Business For Home. Seems MonaVie is sharping it's policies.
An Important Message from Randy Schroeder, MonaVie President of North America & Europe
I pen this note to all MonaVie members in North America who have attained the rank of Gold Executive or higher. I first thank you for the contributions that you have made and continue to make in the development of our (your) business. It is Friday as I write, and while the week’s numbers are not yet fully known, it appears clear that this week will be the seventh out of the last eight weeks where we experience growth, vs. the same week, four weeks earlier, and six out of eight weeks where we experience sequential week-to-week growth.
While there is much to be done, I hearken back to an old Virginia Slims advertisement…“We’ve come a long way, baby!”…in a relatively short time. Distributor attitudes and actions have improved. Predictably, we are now seeing the resulting increase in distributor application flow, which is the foundation upon which all else rests. I again thank you for your contribution to our improved and improving results.
We now arrive at a time where we each need to make a decision. As has been well noted, acknowledged and described, we have endured a time of turmoil. This time, happily, is now passing or has passed. During the confusion of the introduction of MVP, management role changes, and refocusing energies to North America, some MonaVie members began splitting efforts and allegiances between our company and other direct selling and affiliate entities. In the pre-St. Louis days, a decision was made to delay acting upon some known violations of our policies and procedures. While this decision was not comfortable for some, I felt that all needed to see with clarity the vision and direction of MonaVie, as would be (and was) delivered at the Convention of the Americas.
Two days ago, I received a message that led to a telephone call. It became clear to me that the time to fully enforce MonaVie policies has arrived. A great member of our distributor force told me of her dismay at the following situation: After working diligently for some time to help her husband see the value of the MonaVie opportunity with no avail, this member was able to persuade her husband to join her in St. Louis. Suddenly, he became her partner in yet another way—he fully committed himself to the development of their MonaVie business! Then, last week, this same husband was contacted by a member of their upline, attempting to recruit the couple into a competing business, all the while asserting that such activity was within MonaVie policy and would not be perceived negatively. What occurred? A reversal of the confidence and belief recently gained by the husband in our company and opportunity. The outcome was an effective unwinding of the great St. Louis experience. This is not fair and must not be allowed to occur even one more time.
Effective today, we will begin to administer the MonaVie policies and procedures as written. We will fully protect the business being built by you, our loyal membership. Any member who participates with another direct selling company, will be eligible to receive only ECM payments from MonaVie. If a MonaVie member makes any recruiting effort whatsoever into any other direct selling or affiliate company (whether personally or through electronic media posts, except to a personally enrolled member), the result will be termination.
My message is very simple: It is time to decide. If you are involved with another company in our industry, decide today….will you commit yourself to success in our business or to another? I love the Marine Corps motto “Semper Fidelis,” or “Always Faithful.” At MonaVie, we are faithful and will remain faithful to the protection of the business that you build. Permanent income requires permanent commitment!
I again thank you for your contribution to our rapidly improving results. In recent weeks the rank advancement page has again been vibrant and fun to look at. More to come!
President of North America & Europe,
