Review: Monavie MLM Home Business Opportunity

What is the Monavie MLM Business Opportunity?Monavie
For those of you looking into a wellness business opportunity, Monavie has an impressive product and compensation plan.

The star product ingredient is Acai berry, which currently enjoys a huge amount of positive publicity for its known health benefits, such as cardivascular health and anti-aging.

The primary product is ‘Monavie Original Formula’, which is an antioxidant-rich liquid supplement, containing phytonutrients from 19 different plant sources, including:

Acai — Pomegranate — Wolfberry
Cranberry — Purple grape — Prune
Kiwi — Blueberry — Bilberry

The second formulation is called ‘Monavie Active’, which is the 19 fruit phytonutrients, plus added glucosamine and essential fatty acids for joint health and mobility.

Monavie Original and Monavie Active are also now available in convenient gel-packs, for convenient on-the-go usage. (Great for someone who travels a lot)

To become a new distributor, the minimum fee is $39. This will get you a ‘distributor kit’. One thing to note about Monavie that I found a bit unusual. Before you enroll, you are asked whether or not you are subject to any other non-compete agreements with competitor companies. Since I am a rep with two different companies right now, for example, it appears that I could not become a Monavie rep at this time. There is also some language that excludes completely anyone who is, or ever has been, involved with Amway/Quixtar. This apparently has to do with some kind of pending legal issues between the two companies. (based on some quick searching on Google) Very odd, indeed. If you are a Monavie distributor and would like to explain or comment on this, we would all appreciate the information.

The pay plan is described as a ‘new generation binary’ plan, that has unlimited depth and width. There are eight different ways to earn:

Direct Sales
Bulk Order bonus
Team Commissions
Executive Check Match
First Order bonuses
Leadership Pools
Star Maker Bonus
Multiple Business Centers

Pros: Very inexpensive to become a distributor, at only $39; wellness industry is popular and growing every year; straightforward product line, with the Acai berry benefits taking center stage.

Cons: Non-compete agreement could be a concern for home business builders who want to have two or more offerings in their portfolio; get ready to build a downline of hundreds, if not thousands, in order to generate a substantial income…but this is true with any MLM opportunity.

    Hi Cathy,

    You actually answered your own question about the non-compete issue. As you noted, you are asked if you are subject to any other non-compete agreements. This is not actually a limitation originating with MV. It is the company’s way of saying, “If you’re already working with another MLM, make sure THEY don’t have a non-compete clause in their contract.”

    If you have such a clause, you’re actually potentially in violation, since you’re involved with two companies already. Of course, that depends on how those non-competes are written. For example, a clause might stipulate that you can’t represent another nutritional company, if your MLM carries nutritional products.

    MV has actually initiated the “Open Door Campaign”, calling for an end to restrictive non-compete agreements. They recognize the very concerns you have posted in this article, and are spearheading the effort to correct the problem. you can read more about the ODC here.

    If anyone wishes to learn more about this company, the product or the opportunity, feel free to contact me here. I’d be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

    Cathy,

    To adress the pending legal issues between MonaVie and Quixtar – it all began when the top group of quixtar distributors known as “The Team” left the organization due to unresolvable differences between the leaders of Team and the DeVos family and the subsequent relationship between Team and MonaVie. A google search on Team/Quixtar or names like Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady and Tim Marks would help fulfill your curiosity.

    As for joining MonaVie yourself while repping other MLM’s, there is no legal risk in doing so. If you have had anyone tell you otherwise, get in touch with me and I’ll get you signed up.

    Hope this helps,

    Ryan

    Ryan,

    I’m sorry, but to make such a blanket statement about the legal risks of signing up, without knowing what other companies Cathy represents, is irresponsible.

    The fact is, there ARE companies out there, such as Quixtar, that have very specific non-compete clauses. By signing up with you, me, or any other distributor, she COULD be risking her distributorship with one of THOSE companies.

    If you are already involved with another MLM, do yourself a favor and read that company’s P&P. If they don’t have a clause that would prohibit you from joining a new company, then go for it. Of course, you’ll want to read the new company’s P&P as well, to make sure THEY don’t have a non-compete.

    Cathy’s statements are correct. It seems obvious to me that she is a MonaVie distributor. MonaVie does NOT have non-compete agreements, they are truly an open-door company. Ryan has his point also, if you are researching companies, looking to work within MLM do your research.
    If you want any further info check either of my sites or contact me by my email. I would be happy to help anyone.
