MonaVie Re-Branding Continues, But It’s The Same Old Story For Distributors (Plus Orrin Woodward’s $3 Million “Loan”)

December 14, 2011

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.

    “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.”

    I thought commissions received for recruitment constitutes an illegal pyrimid scheme…oh wait…it was a ‘loan’…he didn’t have to repay…if he met certain recruiting distributor goals…yep, that sounds like commission to me.

    Anyone care to clarify this cheeky maneurvoring?

    Murray~
    All too telling isn’t it?

    This quote from the Salt Lake Tribune is so telling and explains exactly why Orrin didn’t give a rip about the Leaders, was willing to take out anyone who got in the way of meeting his goal, was in a race to meet his ‘quota’, and was willing to sell out any leader that ‘questioned’ their mafia like orders and actions during the registration.

    BTW~ Great JOB to the reporter and newspaper!

    Did Orrin give any part of that 3 MILLION dollars to all those people who did the work, built their own teams, brought the revenue… right down to the person who ‘held’ their spot or did he just assume he ‘deserved’ it and did all the work? How could leaders go bankrupt because of lawsuits….when there was 3 million dollars up for grabs to help them?

    Another question…Why are some saying they were told (I believe them) Orrin used the ‘Profit-sharing’ for the lawsuits…but Orrin says he didn’t use the Profit-sharing money… was this another way for him to steal from those who earned it? Did he ask all those independent business partners if they felt that was a good idea to take from their incomes to use for HIS lawsuits…that is theft, in my opinion?

    Those leaders…. Years of blood, sweat, tears, time, and money they used to build their own businesses for Orrin to then decide it was his ‘right’ to spend it how he saw fit for HIS malicious lawsuit.. decide what was ‘best’ for everyone’s else’s future incomes and business’, destroyed, manipulated, and used everyone else’s efforts? Did he think we were ‘investors’ which he had the right to control our earned incomes. Bernie Madoff comes to mind. All for his monetary needs to get met? Independent B- Business Owners…really? Independent Business owners make their OWN decisions for what is right for their OWN business, including how their earned income gets spent… they don’t have someone else lying to them and playing with their lives and money!

    All of the PC, including their supposed ‘Christian’ wives…. should be ashamed and crushed under their own conscience..but one problem; in my opinion… it can’t be crushed if you don’t one.

    Will Orrin try and write an article to ‘distract’…create a ‘diversion’… try and cover up more lies and the other PC…go on a smear campaign against the reporter and news paper who exposed this, with all their copy cat, Google bombing websites?
    Very interesting the article also stated MV wouldn’t answer any questions about this. Why would that be… why the lack of transparency?

    It does not take a genius to figure out the lack of honesty and transparency, that could clear up any ‘misinformation’ that I won’t be surprised O comes back with…because we all know he is notorious for blaming the victim, while he plays the victim!

    Anyone would be blind not to see the character melt down process that has happened in the PC and how they were willing to sell out and made their selfish choices; and also those people who have stayed it just becomes clearer and clearer. The clock just keeps ticking…

    No question this is very revealing and exsposes their true characters of those who claim they are Christian and remain peddling the illusive Dream and ‘business opportunity’ that you can become financially, spiritually, relationally…..FREE

    “The past is prologue, study the past”… Team leaves Mona vie, since Mona vie announced the MPV program, bringing the tools business “in house.” (I don’t see Orrin wearing a cowboy hat…do you?) Previously, Team left Quixtar during the accreditation process for tool providers. Anybody wanna take a stab at this one?

    **News Flash**

    Here is a public acknowledgement from a Salt Lake City Tribune newspaper article Vogel found.

    Thank You Vogel!!!!!

    Well. well…..here is a more than interesting article written about MV which makes a statement about Orrin Woodward and his alleged 3 MILLION DOLLAR loan given to him by Monavie..just given to HIM without having to pay it back if he met the recruiting distributor goals were met? This couldn’t be why get them in NOW occured and all the other malicious and criminal and unethical things happened in the registration process…could it??!

    It is now Publically reported from the newspaper!!!! Forgive my ignorance but how is it a loan if you don’t have to pay it back, oh that is right unless he didn’t meet the quota of the recruiting distributor goals according to the paper..

    Here is what it states: the link is under Vogel’s comments that I copied and pasted you can get the full article there!!!! It is worth the read and should open the eyes of the blind followers who have been lied to so many times!

    Quote: ” 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.”

    What now Orrin, how will you lie and spin this?

    What will he do with this article? Will he deny it…try and sue the paper? Will he continue to say he isn’t in it for the money and MV was the best busniess for ‘everyone’? Oh how much you cared about others Orrin and your BS ‘bench marking study.’ In my opinion…You are a disgrace to society….it is obvious you ‘moved’ to MV for YOUR monetary needs and gain!!!

    And you seriously want people to believe your complete pile of dung that you are not in it for the MONEY? Seriously? Really? You think People are that stupid or were you just hoping this skelton wouldn’t pop out of your closet that has more skeltons than a grave yard!!!

    You are being found out on a daily basis and the pieces are all falling into view so the unsuspecting and uniformed can ‘see’ for themselves, your true motives, just who you really are and how much you have lied to all of us….

    Oh my goodness… Did anyone see Orrin’s tweets today?

    “If a man cannot trust himself, then he cannot expect to earn the trust of others either.” – Orrin Woodward

    “OLD: If you can’t beat them; join them. NEW: If you can’t beat them; bash them. :)” – Orrin Woodward

    The issue is people think he’s talking about other people when in reality I think this is the most truthful statements I have heard him make about himself.

    The article was amazing…well maybe “amazing” isn’t the right word…”amazingly satisfying confirmation of what we all knew already” would be more apropos.

    Acknowledgement of Orrin’s $3 mil commission — um, “loan” — was the best part. It solidifies my view of how Orrin operates — somewhere between a slave master and a cattle driver. I sort of hate to say that because it’s a bit demeaning to the distributors, but that’s how they were treated — like slaves; cattle; to be bought, sold, or whipped at master’s discretion.

    The other part that really blew me away was the statement from Ralph Carson about Monavie:

    “Carson cautioned that the drink was ‘expensive flavored water. Any claims made are purely hypothetical, unsubstantiated and, quite frankly, bogus,’ according to a court transcript that quoted an Amway attorney. That attorney also read from a portion of a transcript of a deposition in which another attorney questioned Carson:

    ‘You have indicated, as I understood it, during your deposition today, that you never understood or knew the contents of MonaVie’s drink. Is that correct?’

    Answer: ‘Completely correct.’

    ‘When you say completely, what do you mean by that?’

    Answer: ‘If you were to ask me how much açai is in the product, I do not know’.”

    This is the guy who allegedly “invented” Monavie, and he took to the stage to promote the juice to distributors as though it was some kind of miracle — and all along he knew it was nothing more than worthless mystery piss. They ALL knew it!

    It was also nice to see that they got Dallin Larceny’s tenure with Dynamic Essentials on the record, complete with accurate chronology. The article correctly points out that Larsen was still with the company when they ran afoul of the FDA in 2002, which contradicts Dallin’s traditional cover-up story about leaving the company well before the trouble with the FDA (and in some versions of this fairy tale, he left because he objected to DE’s business practices!… that one always made me howl with laughter because all of the advertising transgressions occurred under Larceny’s watch, and advertising/distributor training was his responsibility as VP of Sales and Marketing).

    This spectacular crap-fest known as Monavie looks to be finally nearing an end. Everything seems to be falling apart at the seams. Let’s just hope that the kingpins didn’t blow all of their ill-gotten gains — I’d hate to see them unable to pay restitution when the time comes. If my Monavie Christmas wish comes true, Larceny and Woodworm will see the inside of a prison cell someday soon.

I bet that even sucks worse if you didn’t. Orrin, mr integrity and character……..He just sealed his position as a leader that let pride take him down, the only thing missing is the rest of he dirt we are sure to hear about…………I am just dying laughing at all of this. He is as low as they get. Monavie, 6 bucks to make and bottle and 24 for it’s distributors at the lowest wholesale cost………..But it’s different with team lief, he would never use people for profit, he’s the victim, people are jealous, we just don’t have dream, we are all quitters and thumbsuckers, he, however is the man.

    Hahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!! No hurt feelings here I had to bust a gut on that one! And agreed I thought the same thing on ROLF Carson…even though it is one bit funny on how they knew all along and have deceived people!

    Here is a dandy of an explanation…Dallin said he left (I believe this is on a CD) but I heard it told by him from stage that he left his last ‘business’ because the ‘owner’ put up a different Flag..not an American one and left the country and that is why he left!

    It sounds like that particular statement might have been referring to his tenure as VP at USANA, which preceded his stint with DE. If I’m not mistaken USANA’s Myron Wentz became a citizen of Lichtenstein (money shelter) and opened up a wonky cancer clinic in Mexico.

    It’s probably safe to assume that his “official” reason for leaving USANA was no less full of BS then his excuse about DE.

    Vogel, you say “It solidifies my view of how Orrin operates — somewhere between a slave master and a cattle driver” and I laughed when the video ended with a cow moo’ing! I don’t know if your comment was intentional but well played my friend! I guess Orrin’s cows won’t be in the MV Corral in 2012 though. Nope, they will be fed and slaughtered for Orrin’s own personal dinner table.

    I was also blown away by the comment that Ralph Carson stated on the record about the juice being “expensive flavored water”. This law suit must be a matter of public record, how come we haven’t read the details of the case and the judgement? Have we and I have just forgotten about it? There must be some more juicy tidbits in it?

    And, really MV? That video was the best “marketing strategy” you could come up with for the MV 2.0? You hired and pay Cohen a lot of money for THAT? Was the cow mooing supposed to be funny? Oh dear. You really ARE in trouble.

    Okay, so when Orrin Moved everyone to MV do you all remember the great lengths he went to to sell us on his “Bench Marking” Of all the MILM’s out there? I mean our up line spewed the crap about the Great Orrin Woodward, master technical bench marker, has no peers in his field, he’s the man, no one is smarter than Orrin…….(did you catch that sarcasm mr Collins) yeah I am talking about your man, Owwin woodward. Any hoot, this is important because the lie is so significant. Orrin supposedly benchmarked all of the available MLM’s in the country and came to the conclusion that MV was the best based on pay plan and product. I mean we are talking about THEE Owwin woodward, bench marking genius. Remember how the others PC’s would rip on people and want to give them a smarter than orrin button? Any way, I am the furthest thing from an engineer, but I do have the intimate details of Owwins benchmarking study. Here you go:

    Benchmarking study of the King Bench marker of the world Orrin A. Woodward.

    MV = 3 million in my pocket
    All Other MLM’s = 0 in my pocket

    Conclusion- we are going with Monavie!!!! Woo HOO

    No really gang this is taken from Owwins actual notes, this is it in full, the whole bench marking study down to a T.

    On another note,

    Lance Smith
    Randy Haugen
    Chuck Goetschel
    Don Freeze
    Matt Abraham
    Matt Zimmerman
    Bobbie and Pastor Dickie
    Kevin Thompson

    And many, many more……….
    All of these men have one thing in common, Orrin Woodward. All are extremely intelligent and well read men. Respected in the real world. All have shown character and integrity when it counted. All, to my knowledge are Godly men. So you have to ask your self…….Why have all of these men and many more left Orrin Woodward? The common denominator is Orrin, a man with the most failed relationships I know of. He is a pathological liar, as many have witnessed first hand. Refer to the bench marking study. he has lashed out in anger, used profanity and been just plain mean. These are all things he claims he is against as a leader, self proclaimed leader that is. So why is it that all of these respectable men are no longer affiliated or even have a relationship with Orrin? You will have to answer that one for yourself but I can tell you it is not because they are the problem………One Word will explain it CHARACTER…..more accurately, lack of CHARACTER……..by Orrin. All of these men know the true Orrin and it ain’t the self promoting narcissist we all have seen on stage and have heard on CD. I mean all we have to do is look at any of the books he claims are best sellers that he authored….Not one of them sold on it’s own merit. All ran through his system and promotions to the same people…you had 10,000 people buy 10 copies of his books, not 100,000 people buying them. Do you remember Orrins talk on becoming a best selling author???? The publisher was amazed at the number of books that initially were ordered……….Everyone of them went to team……….It makes you want to puke at the way he fawned over himself on stage. yet it was just another of many many falsehoods in his life.

    You push the envelope with @Lance Smith, he is a total scumbag. He made millions molesting other peoples Hispanic Amway teams and bringing them under his tool umbrella. Why do you think the 20,000 Hispanics never came into Team Monavie with him? They all told him to fly a kite, stayed with Amway, and launched their own gig. It was a breath of fresh air to leave his dictatorship and be on their own. Actually, besides Curtis Spolar (who was really in Lance’s corporate downline stayed with Orrin) the Hispanic group was Lance’s bread and butter. They weren’t even in his MLM downline, only his ‘tool’ downline.

    Rumor has it that Lance is lucky to qualify Gold in Monavie, but that is unconfirmed.

    Anonymous 98-pound mental weakling acting like a thug and throwing down an empty challenge. How very brave of you to posture like that. You can report back to Orrin that you defended his honor (pfft) and that it’s now safe for him to step out from behind your skirt.

    for anyone wondering why many of us do not want to use our full names – just see the above post from the new mike collins.

    This man threatened physical violence in a very public setting. Imagine what the true blue orrin woodward devotees are capable of. These people are so brainwashed. If someone would post such a threat publicly, is it not a safe assumption that there is a possiblity someone could actually commit murder to prove their loyalty. Sounds extreme, but read the above post again. This was a post on a public forum and seemed VERY serious about wanted to inflict harm on someone.

    He is a great example of the hypocrisy of TEAM/Life – claiming to stand for principles, values, integrity, etc. Is that the way a person of integrity conducts themselves when they are upset with someone? Yikes!

Is he for hire by the deep pockets because of the association? Is Orrin and the PC now promoting violence? Since Orrin is reading this, and knows who this guy is, he should have a come to Jesus meeting with Mike and share some of his onliner leadership that he has against violence.

    I am not seeing it… from the LIEf comp plan…I am curious how he could get such deep pockets? According to the comp plan he would have to be in the TOP 1% and we all know what those odds are. And I haven’t seen this guy advertised as a PC either.

    The “Christian” Mike Collins, I see that on your facebook page you claim to be a Christian. Is that so? Did Orrin make you become a Christian? I see that you say you are but your surely not acting like one! Do you think that Christians should call people names (punks) and threaten them with bodily harm by saying things will end badly for them? Is that your idea of what a Christian should act and behave like? I also see that your pretty high on Mike Collins. Do you always talk about how deep your pockets are to strangers? Is that where your love lies? As a Christian I am sure you know what the Bible says about pride and the love of money that is pouring out of your comments. Should a Christian ignore and disobey the working rules that his company has set up? Your company says that you should not be commenting on here and even after it was pointed out to you, you still kept the comments coming. Way to be a living example of what a Christian should look like. Everything you say should be discredited just from you being such a fake. Thanks for ruining your testimony on here so that the rest of the hundreds of team people can see what your really like. If want to you worship Orrin that’s up to you but I would appreciate it if you would take the “I am Christian” off of your facebook you cannot worship both man and God. You’re a perfect example of what Christians are not supposed to look like.

    Oh man! I just saw this new pile of garbage on Troy Dooly’s site (I refuse to post a link to it because that jackass doesn’t deserve the bump):

    “MonaVie has announced they will launch MonaVie 2.0 on January 13th & 14th 2012. Given the fact they have hired Jeff Cohen as their new CMO, I have a feeling 2012 will be an eventful year for the MonaVie reps.

    Another piece of news surrounding MonaVie is their new focus on compliance. Over the last few years regulators and critics have hit MonaVie hard for not reprimanding reps for the sometimes outrageous health claims. And having read some of these claims, and seeing the 3rd party lab tests on the juice, I can see why the feds were very upset.

    I find this one more positive step Dallin Larsen and his team are taking to make sure they do not go the way of other network marketing rising stars, like Sea Silver, or Burn Lounge.”

    Wow!. So now that the company has its back against the wall and seems to be hanging on by a thread, Troy is finally ready to admit the truth. Talk about being a day late and a dollar short; a cross between a Monday morning quarterback and an unabashed apologist.

    Troy is throwing down a little smokescreen for the execs with his BS about how they were lax in not reprimanding reps for outrageous health claims. He’s trying to pass the buck and deflecting the blame when we all know that all along these claims were coming from the very top. Carson, Brig Hart, Jason Lyons, Marsh, and Dallin himself were all complicit, and there is documented evidence to prove it. They were pulling these shenanigans on stage at major meetings for crying out loud. Who do these crooks think they’re fooling.

    And if you want to see some real hypocrisy, look at this comment Dooly wrote on his site back in Sept 2010 in an article about Dallin Larsen:

    “What cure claims are you referring at MonaVie? I have reviewed this company inside and out, and have never seen any cure claims. If you can produce these claims, I will report on this issue. As for misrepresentation, MonaVie has terminated folks for misrepresenting the company and products.”

    And now a year later in his latest blog post he basically says that it’s public knowledge that the outrageous claims had been taking place for the past few years. The critiques about health claims and the crap nutritional content of Monavie have been around for ages, but only now when it’s too late and Monavie is begging for its life does Troy open his yap about it.

    Aggh. The guy makes me sick! Like I said before, he’s Monavie’s little lapdog…Tokyo Rose..third-rate propagandist.

    The one thing that aroused my curiosity was Dooly’s comment that: “Over the last few years regulators and critics have hit MonaVie hard.” The only regulatory action taken against Monavie that’s on the public record (on the Internet at least) is the 2007 warning letter sent in regard to some advertising by Kevin Vokes. Such letters (know as “FDA cyberletters”) are a far cry from a “hard hit”. It’s more like a very gentle nudge whispered softly in their ear; i.e. “we’d really appreciate it if you’d stop doing that OK? Thanks!”.

    My guess is that Troy knows about FDA enforcement actions against Monavie that we aren’t privy to. I’ve suspected that such actions were taking place behind the scenes for the last year or so — that’s around the time that people first started filing FDA complaints, and then, a short time later the company finally started paying lip service to compliance training (presumably not a coincidence). And now according to Troy, the company is making further gestures to step up compliance. I don’t think they’d be doing that unless the FDA were breathing hard down their necks.

    December 16, 2011 10:29 pm

    Better yet Vogel are the comments our own Michael Collins has pasted up on Troy’s Facebook thread on the same article, Michael is laying in to him big time. Great job Michael!

    “Troy Dooly ‎@Michael, Not sure how much you have followed MonaVie lately. But if you have studied the new operational team that has been hired, you might change your mind. It seems, like most companies, inside and outside of network marketing, they are through the startup phase, and realize they are not in the stage where they have to tighten the ship. Their CCO (Chief Compliance Officer), and the new CMO (Cheif Marketing Officer) have been working hand in hand to clean up a lot of issues. I remember in 1983, when folks said “Herbalife is done in the USA” after all the negative press and Senate Hearings… Guess they were wrong. 🙂 Although only time will tell, from talking with reps at all levels, the attrition seems to have stablized and they are excited about 2012.”

    Michael’s Response:
    ” Like I said Troy, The growth is anything but organic. You of all people should know this and I think you do (wink wink) or is this the MLM advocate speaking in you?
    And I’m not assuming anything…..but you probably know this as well?”

    ‘ Also, I can almost guarantee I have followed MV a lot more closely than you have Troy. As a matter of fact here are the rank advancements for last week.

    1 Hawaiian Blue diamond NOT in the U.S. 2 Blue Diamonds NOT in the U.S. 2 Diamonds NOT in the U.S. 5 Emeralds NOT in the U.S. 9 Rubies NOT in the U.S. 59 Golds with ONLY 5 in the U.S. 53 Silvers with ONLY 3 in the U.S. and 109 Bronzes with ONLY 3 in the U.S.

    That’s a total of 240 rank advancements, not counting the lower ranks, with ONLY 13 of them coming from the U.S. That’s 94.5% of the “growth” in MV coming from the international market. The most telling statistic is at the Bronze level. This is by far one of the easiest ranks to “buy” and the best they can produce is 3 out of 109.

    It will almost take an act of God to revive MV in the U.S. and true networkers know this. This is why they have moved on. Have you heard any big networker going to MV lately? I didn’t think so. All that is left is the international market and the ignorant few that haven’t heard of this farce yet.

    I got news for you Troy, this ain’t 1983 (that was 29 years ago) and MV ain’t Herbalife….not by a long shot.

    And since the COO and CMO are busy “cleaning up issues” maybe they can add Calvin Becerras’ false income claims on Ted Nuytens site to their list of things to do.

    As far as real scams go, whenever you’re ready to do some real change instead of being afraid to step on certain peoples toes (obviously that’s hard to “monetize”) you let me know. Maybe we could start with MV…………”

I know that the leaders actually mocked the FDA at their conventions and said from the stage “I know that we aren’t ‘allowed’ to say that MonaVie cured such and such” wink wink, implying “go ahead and say it, just don’t get busted”.

    Dallin Larceny & Brig Hart along with all of their greedy little Diamonds know for a fact that they made statements like the above and paraded people up on stage who stated that they had “been ah cuuuuurrreeed….hallelujah!!!…Praise Monavie!!!” I KNOW for a FACT that this happened with the blessing & presence of Larceny & Hart.

    I think the saddest part is that they are blaming the distributors for this behavior that they blatantly taught them and encouraged them to use as part of their sales pitch. The distributors, so confused are simply accepting responsiblity and saying that they have been naughty, just like the puppets on the string that they are. I just really hope that there are some ex-distributors that provide evidence on this issue in the class action law suit.

    An interesting note. The king critic and quitter of them all is Orrin. He is on numerous cd’s being a critic. Here is the short list,
    Orrin is a critic of:

    College and education
    government
    business, other than his
    any MLM he is not part of (most of this was done anonymously)
    Other religions
    Other Leaders
    Any individual that has left his team
    Q and Amway

    I mean think of it, for years he promoted and profited from Q/Amway and defended them against any and all comers. Made cd’s about how to defend agains people that accuse them of being a pyramid. Then and only when Q suffered a devastating legal blow in the UK which was going to force them to change the tool business of the different leaders in the US (Orrin was gonna lose the ability to profit from the tools if he stayed with Q) did he turn around and sue them for the very thing he defended them on for years. Being a pyramid. So what was his answer..QUIT……Yep Orrin Quit, along with quitting GM and Quitting college Orrin continued his long history of quitting by quitting Q. He jumps into MV with a nice 3 million dollar bonus but now that he wants to up the profits he essentially quits MV. He is the biggest critic of anyone that does not agree with, quits, or follows his philosophy but he is the biggest and boldest quitter of them all.. And let’s not give Tim or Chris or any of the PC a break. They also excel at both criticizing and quitting as well. I do not know if I can put it all in words but think of how they have quit being respectable for the name of profit…………..I mean they sold out their wives, kids, Pastor, family and convince a number of others to do the same. Orrin quit on Pastor Dickie……and even worse he then used his influence to convince others to quit Pastor and his church as well. None of this was done for biblical reasons yet they do it in God’s name. I am no biblical scholar but I do think God has a special place for those who claim to be his and mislead others that truly are God’s, in his name. They are despicable human beings.

    Tim quit on the Mike and Kristi, George quit on the Morgan’s, they all quit on their jobs and the companies the supported them for years. Do not cut them any slack, share your stories and spread the truth about them. And if possible make them pay restitution for the damage they have done.

    Nothing ticks me off more than this. All that time Orrin knew that information, he taught us to stack our business, taught us to buy from ourselves, to push the button. Once in years do I remember him talking about customers, it was ALL about recruiting.
    He used us for his personal gain knowing all this information full well. All those years leaving our children night after night and all the lies we were being told. Residual, passive income, yeah right. He is STILL profiting off of the teams we built! What about the 10,000 and up bonuses many leaders earned and didn’t get because of his lawsuit? Or how about the fact many leaders’ teams were solicited to leave Amway and follow Orrin. We had no choice but to follow our PC or lose years worth of work.

    Years worth of time and effort wasted and lost that could’ve been used for real educations, to further careers and real businesses, time that could’ve been spent with family and real frineds that really gave a dam! Time and money wasted based on lies of passive, ongoing, pipeline income……..lies they are still promoting!

    I think damages should be paid for all that was lost and also the after affects. Damage to our reputation for being involved publically with team and promoting it, as well as for all the slanderous lies Orrin/PC and their followers have been telling about us for years and still are. What about the emotional damage being in this destructive group has caused us and our families and all the wounds that are still not fully healed? How about years of depression and oppression spent in silence due to fear?

    Every decision we made was based on the lies we were being fed for years.

    IF WE KNEW THE WHOLE TRUTH UP FRONT WE WOULD’VE NEVER GOT INVOLVED.

    Finally I remember reading some of these lawsuits and I couldn’t believe it, It was like a sucker punch. We were so naive and so trusting. It is discusting. We all played follow the leader like we were taught. Don’t change the system. Everyone knows it all comes from the top down. We were so used by them! 😦

    It was devastating to realize we were taught and asked to do some shady things by leaders the company supported and we were supposed to be able to trust . I remember when my upline called and told us to resign from Quixtar and than called back and said not on the same day! I remember when he called and solicited us to get affidavits (against Quixtar)
    from distributors to send to our State Attorney General. He told us what to say and then said ” of course he didn’t tell me what to write”……something along those lines. We just followed like good little leaders would………PUKE! Basically I would guess we incriminated ourselves with those papers and didn’t even know it! We never consulted an attorney or anything.I am sure there are a lot more people who did the same. 😦

    With all the fear that was flying and secrecy we should’ve known it was all b.s. and there was a lot more to the story they weren’t telling us! They made Quitar out to be the devil and of course never told us their tool business was going to be shut down.
    PUKE!

    They are users and abusers and manipulaters, period. It is so shameful all the things we did to support the scam. I am so sorry for all I was unknowingly involved with. I wish I would’ve had hindsight, clear unindoctrinated thinking and knew all of the information I know now, I could’ve made better decisions. They took the best of us, our trust, our ambition, our desire to make a difference in the world and used it against us. 😦
    That is what drives me to be here for the long haul, to warn others.

    “Finally”, the blog I am referring to are the comments made after the Salt Lake City Tribune on-line article referenced in this article. Just go to Amthrax’s article above and click on ‘scathing article on Monavie’s 2012 rebranding efforts’ in the first line (hi-lighted in red) and it will take you to the article. There are comments at the bottom of the first page but the article itself is several pages long. I just thought if we went and spoke of the atrocities of MLM in general, we could keep the dialogue going there and get more and more of the public’s attention.

    This guy is unbelievable. After all his pontificating about being a consumer/distributor advocate and all his his patronizing bullsh@t on this blog he is going to review the new Lief book. Like I said Troy, when you’re ready to make some real change instead of worrying about whose toes you step on because you’re not able to “monetize” it….you let me know. I’m all in.

    And Troy….your actions don’t support your “mission.”

    Wow! Have you guys been following the story of Monavie in India? The kingpins are literally being beaten by outraged mobs.

    I wonder how Monavie will rebrand that…

    I don’t envy Randy Larsen’s job. He’s doing Monavie’s international dog-and-pony show …probably to afraid to step off the plane in some of these countries now. They got screwed in Germany, Singapore, and China, and now they’re getting physically beaten in India. I can only imagine what other indignities await the MV pins in the near future.

    Probably one of the nicest things about these countries is that they can get away with kicking someones ass. And a good ass kicking is what some of these crooks from over here in the U.S. need…..

    Interesting quote I picked up from Troy Dooly’s blog talk book review on the new “Life” by Orrin and Chris. ” Anyone wanting to be a leader should be judged by his scoreboard, and not by his self-proclamations.” pg 31 of the new Life book.

    What scoreboard does this refer to? Personal bankruptcies of key leaders? Stolen teams? Confiscated profit sharing? Turnover of distributors? Percentage of personal financial failure? Allocation of compensation dollars? Broken relationships? Repossessed homes or automobiles? Divided families?

    Just wondering, what is the real scoreboard?

    Troy just can’t seem to be decisive whether he thinks Orrin is a ‘leader’ or isn’t…Troy said in his other video.. pharaphrased; He (meaning Orrin) isn’t even a good leader sometimes and will have to face judgement someday for his good & bad deeds? implying he knows something. He seems to chicken to step on some.. toes. It seems to me he is neither hot nor cold, and other times like now, decides to ‘promote’ Orrin and Chris. How can you promote these guys after all the mounds of the ‘preponderance of evidence’?

    Which is it? Does he know they breached contracts, Orrin=Qrush and behind the other anonyomous blogging smear campaign, stole others teams & money that many people verify. etc…or did he just ‘choose’ to believe whatever line O fed him without Orrin giving him ‘proof’.. and took his word? And if he knows O did these things then; Do you promote crooks or don’t you? It is mindboggling how he continues to promote them, but that is his choice, I have a feeling someday it will come back to bite him..then what? Oh he knew all along?

    “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other,
    So, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”~NIV

    I agree, Truthseeker… the scoreboard of their character and deeds or is their ‘scoreboard’ what Troy’s newschannel and what Orrin says is the ‘scoreboard’ (propaganda)? Troy says; you shouldn’t ‘beleive’ everything you read on the internet….lol. Then that would include what he says on the ‘internet’! It is always in the MLM world you are only to believe what they say..the news or internet if it doesn’t come from their propaganda….

    The cover up and hypocrisy never ceases to amaze me.

    Speaking of crazies, here is another person threatening to “expose” Lazy Man regarding his alleged scamming of the government. What I find fascinating is that instead of really trying to get to the truth of the matter, these people resort to black mail tactics (or violence) in order to protect these cults.

    http://www.lazymanandmoney.com/monavie-scammer-cyberstalks-me-says-im-cheating-the-government/

    Lazy Man’s site (and the Juice Scam site) were a large part of my educational process when I left Monavie and it led me to this site. Amthrax and Lazy are doing a wonderful thing here encouraging everyone to keep having their voices heard and have the truth come out.

    @oldschool – thanks for sharing your story briefly with us. What made you come to this site, seeing that you left in 2006? Were you searching the web for information on your old upline?

    Curtis Spolar , Orrin Woodward are scam artists stealing peoples money in the life leadership scheme and will stop at nothing to be career criminals.
