TEAM Calendar Has No Place For MonaVie’s Imagine Conference

April 26, 2011

Continuing my discussion about the importance of TEAM meetings above all others, I noticed on TEAM’s public calendar that there’s no mention at all for MonaVie’s Imagine International Convention. Imagine is MonaVie’s annual leadership and training convention, held June 9-11 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Two questions for current TEAM members and MonaVie distributors:

  1. How do you make money in this venture?
  2. Are you encouraged to attend Imagine?

If you’re not a TEAM Director, you are likely not making any money being a part of TEAM. Rather, your only possibility of profiting from your business venture is via MonaVie.

If TEAM is supposed to help you make money first and foremost, why isn’t it advertising the Imagine conference on its web site? Is it just an oversight? Or, does it mean that MonaVie isn’t all that important to TEAM in the grand scheme of things?

Is TEAM just telling people to watch the free web cast of the conference, which MonaVie has provided for several years now? Ironic that TEAM will charge $10/person for a TEAM Cast, but MonaVie’s own Major Function is free to watch on the Internet.

Ex-TEAM members, were you encouraged to attend the MonaVie-sponsored events?

    We had people on our team that wanted to attend some of the MV events and they were told directly by PC not to attend. Also told to stay away from all MV training on the web that was offered. Why? I thought we were supposed to be excited to be a part of the best MLM company out there. (based on Orrin’s benchmarking study) Because they wanted us to spend all kinds of money on their tools and meetings! Team leaders also ripped on leaders from other organizations in MV based on what they wore to the events. They said the women dressed inappropriately and it was not a proper business environment. This was one of the reasons the leadership said Team would dominate in MV. Wrong again! They truly are delusional.

    Amthrax – I can confirm that Orrin has stated on his Team blog that he is attending this conference, and he does encourage others to attend if it is financially feasible. The thing that I find amusing is that he leaves it open to “IBO’s” to make the decision on attending this function, however if it’s a Team function….you better be there…..or…..No Power Player for YOU! LOL

    Also you are dead right….Monavie will be streaming this event (as they do every year) for FREE, which is a concept the Team has yet to develop! No….it’s much better to squeeze every last dollar from your downline…..$10 at a time! I’m sure Orrin will stand on stage and “Edify” the Team to no end….let me guess….going to a million? I’m sure. The first million they’ll hit, is a million people to have quit Team!!!

    When Team first joined mv in 2008 a few bigger leaders went to an event for mv, but that was it.It was never promoted to the average Team distributor and never will be! The Team wants you to live in their little world, God for bid if anyone finds out about Black Diamond University, or Legacy Business Group or any other training organization that sells mv training cheaper. Team wants you to think they are the one and only group that sells mv!!! They do not want you to make an informed decision… just like they teach you not to read these sites!!!

    You people are clueless. Bring your so called facts about TEAM to the table and I’ll sit down and prove you wrong. Don’t continue to scorn what you don’t understand.

    Dennis – My facts are already on the table with dozens of posts about TEAM. Why don’t you start commenting on those posts. Start here:

    Really Dennis? Prove who wrong? Who would you be speaking to be clueless? Why don’t you send in your so-called ‘facts to Amthrax and let everyone view your proof? We are counting on your facts but if you don’t come back with them, then just another drive by, stopping in to call others names. LOL
    How long you been in? What is your legtimate numbers and rank? Or are you just another pawn who has choosen to blindly follow and use the ‘repeat after me’ system’ and upline? Can’t wait to see your facts.
    Or perhaps you are trying to find out who does have the facts, then what Dennis? What would your motive be then?
    Shouldn’t you be ignoring all the broke losers, who quit, because they have no influence anyway, why would you even show up here? Bet you don’t answer that question or any other because your trained to speak in circles and say nothing.
    Hmm……. what would common sense tell you? Bring it, your proof, to this website and let us see it, you seem pretty confident so pretty sure it will be interesting what issues you are addressing, this would be a first!
    If not, you words are not worth anything, we could care less who you think is clueless or what your opinion is, but it will say a lot about your proof of facts, won’t it.

    Dennis-
    Let me guess you’ve been listening to the Handling Objections cd, or quotes like
    ” Figures don’t lie, but liars sure do figure, Critics are the death gargle of a nonacheiver, We don’t have a big enough dream, we didn’t do the work and want something for nothing” blah blah blah….more stop thinking techniques the Team taught you.
    Only the team office can show me facts I want to see. Like how many quit in the last 3 years????? Or how many never made a dime from Team over the last 10 years? How much money and to who did the Team pay their leaders over the past 4 years??? What is the percentage of people started with the Team claiming a net profit on their taxes to the IRS? Under 1%??? If it is sooo great everyone should stay and never quit and make it !!!! How many families out of supposedly thousands are making a profit above their expenses on Team ???? Let’s say PC level. Is it less than 6 families out of thousands in 15 years? Wow that’s impressive, NOT !!! Didn’t the Forbes article on Orrin state there were 60,000 middle class on Team at one point??? If it is such a duplicatable, successful system shouldn’t more people be claiming a profit with the IRS??? Interesting….. have you read any EX TEAM Comments???? Don’t supose you have read all the hunreds of posts huh??? You have no idea who you are talking to. …. LEADERS that made it with TEAM, did the work, and probably know more than you do? LMAO! You repeaters are hilarious, you cannot even think for yourselves!!!
    What is your rank? I never heard your name before???? Shouldn’t you be out building your business??? Why do you have time to read a truthful website, where people share the truth of their experiences, what you would call a critic’s site??? Didn’t you remember Orrin says don’t wrestle with a pig, you might get dirty. Orrin says go prove it with your results….. LOL

    Dennis- Everyone here does have the facts, and the fact is that facts matter even though TEAM says they dont. People here have been burned seriously by TEAM, they are not making it up. I wasnt burned because I could see what was going on right away and see through the BS.

    Dennis-
    Which fact would you like me to bring to the table for discussion? There’s obviously some that you’ve read here that maybe you’re confused about.

    Let us know how we can help you see what we saw or are currently seeing.

    Oh where, oh where has little Dennis gone? Oh where, oh where can he be? He’s gone, for good cuz he can’t produce facts, and thats just the way that it is.

    IQ~lmao! Looking forward to those facts. Must he be privy to some cracking open of the books or perhaps has access to everyone’s los during registration? Or just another driveby looking to blame for lack of growth, poor soul, it isn’t how hard or smart you work, it brilliantly designed that only 1% make the big money while the other 99 just donate or never get a ROI? It always looks better when you ignore your tax returns. Where are those facts?

    I dont know if this is the right post to ask, but some one mentioned YEAM has an Objection CD in thier training materials…those of you ex TEAMers tha heard it could you share some of that…I want to see if I heard them…and I am sure I ahve.

    I ahve heard if the dram is big enough the facts dont matter. it takes 10,000 hours to get good at something, dont let your fears get in the way of your freams…

    Don’t go to the internet to “do some research” about this business because all you’ll find is negative. It’s the equivalent of reading whats written on the public bathroom wall, anyone can write something there. You have to go to someone who is involved and informed for the right information. Accurate information.

    Go to March 23, 2011 GUEST POST: L.I.F.E. TEAM SPEAK and Their Demands. I am possitive you will find hundreds of common quotes (cult jargon as the cult experts call it) that are used on the Handling Objections Cd and all the Cds and some books, in their system.
    You can pick the ones they used on you! I am sure it will all seem very familiar! LOL
