MonaVie Re-Branding Continues, But It’s The Same Old Story For Distributors (Plus Orrin Woodward’s $3 Million “Loan”)
The Salt Lake Tribune has a scathing article on MonaVie’s 2012 rebranding efforts. MonaVie 2.0 will involve a slogan change to “MonaVie Community Commerce: The No. 1 Business Opportunity.” MonaVie has had many slogans in the past, including, “Drink It. Feel It. Share It” and “Look Good, Feel Good, Get Free.” Dallin Larsen has also been fond of saying, “The best business in the world, and the best business for the world,” during his presentations. MonaVie can change its slogan however many times it wants, but the fact remains that the majority of people who become MonaVie distributors ultimately lose money. I don’t see how a 98.5% failure rate qualifies MonaVie as (1) the best business opportunity in the world and (2) the best business opportunity for the world.
A choice quote from the article talks about LIFE TEAM’s Orrin Woodward:
Another was former top Amway distributor Orrin Woodward, who received a $3 million loan from Monavie he didn’t have to repay if he met certain recruiting distributor goals, according to a lawsuit Amway filed against MonaVie in 2008 that was settled last year.
This ties in very nicely with the registration shenanigans reported by Ex-TEAM members all throughout this blog.
Over on the MonaVie Media Center, the company is promoting the launch of MonaVie 2.0 in just 29 days. There’s even a (scary puppet) video featuring several Black Diamonds urging people to come. Notice who’s missing? Why Orrin Woodward and his cadre of Black Diamonds. I wonder if they will be present at this event, or if they will be too busy with their LIFE business to attend.
