There are a lot of great people in the world and I met many of them when I joined up with Mona Vie about 10 years ago. I really wanted Mona Vie to be the real deal and I tried hard to make it work. It’s to bad it became known as the Monavie Juice Scam.
We Need Hope and Some People Use That Against Us
I was so hopeful that Mona Vie was the real thing. The product looked cool, it tasted good, the people were great and the financial success looked awesome.
We all know that Mona Vie hit bottom and was a MLM scheme. I didn’t see that when I was in it. I was sold on the great health benefits they said it offered. I guess I should have known to run the other way when several family members tried to get me signed up, but I was blind to what was in front of me.
The sad thing is that most everyone there were great, wonderful, happy people that just wanted a better life. Some loved the health benefits and what better way to make money than to sell something that could improve your health also?
But Their Ads and Video Production was so Professional
Well, I guess everyone knows how to hook people and encourage us to open our wallets.
I remember an incredible video that was produced by Mona Vie where they had a group of climbers, who were Mona Vie members. It was one incredible climb in a majestic setting and it was so inspirational. Most of the climbers made it to the top and I was so inspired to be there the next time they did it.
Just thinking back about that video, having watched it several times I might add, makes me feel happy today. It was about a team of people that were working together to do something great and to inspire others to do the same.
Little did I know that this would be short-lived.
It Was Not Easy to Be Successful at Mona Vie
I really should have started seeing the picture earlier because it seemed like there was only twenty or so people that were living in the great houses, driving the fancy cars, that were given to them, and one couple was even given a motor home to travel the country to tell their story.
I believe these were some of the very first ones that entered the program. The rest of us “wannabees” just kept looking on with longing in our eyes, thinking that could be us some day.
I worked hard at trying to make it work. I even paid for some booth space at a home and garden show to sell Mona Vie. I stood for two days telling everyone about how great Mona Vie was and I did this on more than one occasion.
Wonderful People Get Involved in Failed Companies
I never look back on Mona Vie with disgust. I look back on it as a time in my life where I learned some valuable lessons and made some great friends. It was a time in my life where I had hope for my future.
There were obvious indications that this was a MLM to someone with more experience than me and who also cared to look deeper beyond all of us “moonstruck” followers. But who really wanted to hear that negative news.
There were many wonderful people who lost money in Mona Vie, and I was one of them.
I Still Have Hope for the Future and Want You to Have Hope Also
Even though Mona Vie failed in the end, I experienced some great things and met many wonderful people there.
We need to keep moving forward to find hope and legitimate opportunities. Life can get us down easy enough and I for one do not want to become complacent and settle for a beer and watching my favorite sports teams in my lazy boy recliner for the rest of my life.
