Orrin Woodward in Northern California

August 12, 2010

So, Orrin Woodward and Dallin Larsen are in California this week for some Super Opens. Yesterday, they were in Southern California, and today they are speaking at Hogan High School. As much as I would like to see up close and personal Orrin and Dallin’s oratory skills, I think I’ll skip it the hour plus drive it will take to get to Vallejo. Those lengthy drives were routine for me a decade ago. It’s something that I definitely do not miss, especially with the ridiculously short commute that I have today.

Looking at the TEAM meeting schedule, I shudder to think how many miles they are putting into their cars to go to meetings where 75-90% of the people are already in the business. How demoralizing is it knowing your job has been reduced to making sure your group is motivated enough to stay on auto-ship and buy their function ticket?

    Well, I guess you gotta keep getting the money they collect at the door since the rest of his ilk is dropping like flies.

    Make no mistake, Monavie will be a has been company in less than 5 years.

    They are reverting back to their traveling medicine show roots — really, that’s what this scam is — an unimaginative spin on the traveling medicine show of the olden days. The only difference is that now they’ve woven in the MLM element so that they can use greed to drive more rubes into buying their snakeoil product and faux ‘business opportunity’.

    BTW, welcome back! Glad you’re posting again.

    “How demoralizing is it knowing your job has been reduced to making sure your group is motivated enough to stay on auto-ship and buy their function ticket?”

    Demoralizing? Are you kidding me? Driving around in a Mercedes, flying around in a jet – yeah, real demoralizing.

    Depends on your point of view. Who’s at home taking care of the children during those weeks out on the road?

    Look at those who do the weekly meetings and opens? They are driving hundreds of miles each week. I wonder what conversations are had to and from those meetings. My bet is that they wouldn’t be fit to be put on the CD of the Week!

    I’m sorry we love Monavie, it has been good to us.

    And I suppose they charged every student $10 to get in and steered them in a different direction other than a college education.

    Look at all these crabs in a box. it amazes me to see how many people get on these things and whine about their pathetic excuses why they failed, trying to justify their reasons they couldn’t make it work. this message is not for those losers, but for people looking for answers, looking for truth. The opens are to keep you positive, to keep you away from all these CRABS… They are a tool for the team, they help prove to new people that this DOES work, if you work it. Obviously, none of these people ever were in college if they are crying about driving to meetings, and spending money on cds, books and seminars.. HMM sounds a lot like college to me, and I never got paid from any of the Universities I went too.

    The crabs are the ones who try to keep you involved in Amway or Mona Vie. They want you to stay in because if you quit, it hurts their cash flow from selling their downlines functions and cds.

    Comparing these systems to college is completely silly. There is bonafide documentation that college pay for those who finish. There is no such supporting documentation about Amway or Mona Vie.
