Raven K Starre Leaves MonaVie For Agel

Ravenkstarre Raven Starre was arguably the first star of MonaVie.  She had a large online presence along with her (former) husband Calvenn, collectively known as "The Starre Team". The couple claimed to personally enroll over 200 people in 6 weeks, during the early free sign up days prior to MonaVie's official launch.

Twitter is all a twit about her leaving MonaVie for Agel.

From her Google Profile:

At the age of 18, Raven rose to the top of a billion dollar MLM company and was featured on national television. 

 She has built three multi-million dollar MLM distributorships, in 1995, 1998 and again in 2005. Over her career, Raven has consistently been in the top 1% of MLM, Network Marketing and/or Home Based Business. 

A sought-after speaker and trainer, Raven created the leading-edge Network Marketing training program "Recruiting Magic." This has become one of the most acclaimed audio programs in MLM. 

She has taught thousands of entrepreneurs how to build successful organizations. 

 Raven is currently one of the highest earning single women in the history of the MLM profession, with over 70,000 distributors in her network.

Fair trade?  Raven Starre for Randy Schroeder?

Derek Broes Efusjon Update Conference Call

By Ty Tribble, Founder, MLM Blog

Efusjon I just received a Facebook message directly from Derek Broes letting me know about a conference call he is having to update everyone about Efusjon.  The call will take place on Monday, September 15th at 7PM Pacific and the details of he call will be coming out on Sunday, September 14th. 

Since Derek went silent about Efusjon a few weeks ago, speculation has been rampant about his future and the future of Efusjon.  

The MLM Blog broke the story about all of the lies and hype being spread about Efusjon's Facebook application that tuned out to be a huge flop.  One Efusjon rep. described the application as an asteroids game that would be lucky to keep a 6 year olds attention for about 5 minutes.

A reliable source recently told the MLM Blog that Efusjon had lost 12,000 associates over the last 60 days.

Once I get the information about Derek's call, I will be posting it here.  Stay tuned.

Evolv Misusing MD Anderson to Promote Evolv Neutraceutical Water?

By Dan Mitchell, MLM Blog Correspondent

Wow...a pre-launch Network Marketing MLM using hype and half-truths to promote their company. That's unheard of!

Evolv neutriceutical water From Science Blogs:

The premier US cancer hospital and research center in Houston released a statement today distancing themselves from a Dallas company claiming an endorsement of their water product by The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center:

Recently, you may have heard or read about a company that sells Evolv, a "nutraceutical beverage," which is being promoted in part based upon testing done at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, but also is being mistakenly viewed as endorsed by M. D. Anderson. M. D. Anderson conducted limited chemical analysis of the product to evaluate its anti-inflammatory activity for a fee at the request of the manufacturer. No efficacy or toxicity data were generated at M. D. Anderson nor was the product tested on humans. Moreover, M. D. Anderson does not have any involvement with the company, the product is not produced by M. D. Anderson, and M. D. Anderson does not endorse the product or recommend its use.

The current text on Evolv's website is that:

Evolv's nutraceutical beverage with Archaea Active is tested by M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.

The statement as listed is not exactly wrong; it's just not complete. Nothing there about what the product was tested for, but the implication is that it gained some healing power by passing through the hallowed halls of M.D. Anderson. I also have no clue as to whether it was tested for archaea (formerly archaebacteria) or if it has the capacity to amplify DNA.

Anti-ageing priority at Nu Skin in Asia

By Dan Mitchell, MLM Blog Correspondent

Nu Skin seems confident of growth in Asia with new "Anti-Ageing" image.

From Trading Markets:

Sep 07, 2009 (Bangkok Post - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX)  Nu Skin Enterprises, the US-based direct-selling business, will redefine itself as anti-ageing company after what it says is the biggest discovery in its 25 years, with new products to meet the needs of the rising population of older people globally.

Dan Chard, the company's president of global sales and operations, said during a Bangkok visit last week that Nu Skin had been defined as a supplement and personal-care products company. But from now on it will be known as an "anti-ageing firm".

Despite the poor economy and rising unemployment, the business of Nu Skin remains healthy with global sales up 4 percent to US$322 million in the second quarter of this year. This is because more people have turned to direct selling to earn additional income.
