MonaVie 2.0: Orrin Woodward’s Day Off
The big reveal of MonaVie 2.0 happened this weekend in Dallas, Texas. Some new juice concoctions and vitamin products were revealed, along with the launch of the new MVP training program for distributors. Those in MonaVie may think that it’s a brand-new day for their businesses, but to me, they are just re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic… or the Coasta Concordia.
At one point near the end of the conference, all of the Black Diamonds came out onto the MonaVie 2.0 stage to give one tip for building a big business. Roll call time!
Brig and Lia Hart? Present.
Steve and Gina Merritt? Present.
Orrin and Laurie Woodward? Woodward? Woodward? Woodward?
Chris and Terri Brady? Brady? Brady? Brady?
Tim and Amy Marks? Marks? Marks? Marks?
Here’s a photo of all the Black Diamonds on stage at MonaVie 2.0:
Why weren’t Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady and Tim Marks present at the MonaVie 2.0 convention in Dallas, Texas?
How did they spend their weekend playing hooky from MonaVie 2.0?
Orrin Woodward: According to his Twitter account, he’s attending his son’s soccer game today.
Chris Brady: He wrote in his Twitter page on Friday that he just got back home to Raleigh, North Carolina.
A reader pointed out this video from a MonaVie conference in 2010:
Clearly a year ago, Chris and Terri Brady thought MonaVie was worth it. So what happened?
Tim Marks: Judging from his recent tweets, he was probably at home watching Tim Tebow and the Broncos get completely outclassed and destroyed by Tom Brady and the Patriots.
What was it that George Guzzardo always says about Major Functions? That you should never miss one, even if finances are tight? He’s at it again while promoting the Winter Conventions at the end of January:
Why is it important to encourage someone to attend this up and coming event? Those of us who have experience with building large communities know how attending one of these events has affected a person’s life. The word most appropriate to describe what happens when someone attends these events is “transform”. Making a difference is another way of describing why we place importance on attending the convention. Just think of the possible difference to a persons finances, marriage, relationships, family, or freedoms it will make by going to an event like this.
The single most concentrated way of getting the information necessary to make a difference in your life is attend the winter convention. As you can tell I am already excited about what I feel will be the single most impactful event for us to attend in the year 2012.
I figure this doesn’t apply to MonaVie corporate events. I guess the business that TEAM has been aligned with for the past three years isn’t important anymore to Orrin Woodward and TEAM. If a company gave you $3,000,000 to come join, wouldn’t you want to show a little gratitude by attending its big re-launch event???
If I were Dallin Larsen — and I’m glad that I’m not — I would think twice about attending a TEAM convention ever again. Now, I’ve heard rumors that Dallin is supposed to be in attendance at the Winter Conference (which just happens to be at the same time as the MonaVie 2.0 launch event in Vancouver, Canada), but I wouldn’t be surprised if he played hooky himself. Turnabout is fair game, they say.
Update February 13, 2012: Reports suggest that Dallin Larsen was indeed present in Ohio. He was also racked up the frequent flier miles (or cashed in his MonaVie Jet Credits) by being on-stage in Vancouver the same weekend.
In a year’s time, the number of people on TEAM who are signed up for MonaVie auto-ship will be lower than it is today. It’s probably lower than it was in November, 2011, when LIFE launched. Anyone who can see these signs can conclude that Orrin Woodward and TEAM are abandoning the MonaVie ship as fast as possible. In my opinion, Dallin Larsen would do everyone a great service by kicking out Orrin Woodward and TEAM in 2012, much like Amway did in 2007.
