Charlie & Debbie Kalb – Top Earners in MLM
I realize that I have been writing some serious, albeit truthful blogs as of late. I was re-reading them, and I was thinking, “I hope everybody is getting my point.” The blogs weren’t meant to be preachy or be a killjoy. If they come across like this, I apologize.
So, for today’s topic, I am going to speak on living a good and fulfilled life. What exactly is the good life? For some, it could be enough money to cover their family’s expenses. That sure sounds good to me. If you have ever had to not pay one bill, so you can pay another one, then you know what I am talking about.
The good life can also be operating your own business. Although it comes with some serious responsibilities, the freedom of not having to punch a time clock, dealing with a horrible boss, or backstabbing, spiteful co-workers, is well worth it.
If you just want some time to rejuvenate and refresh, the good life can be the ability to have the time and finances to do so. You can just book a flight to Rome, take a Caribbean cruise, or take a train ride from one side of the US to the other. Shoot, this sounds so good. Every once in a while, it is a good idea to get away from it all to clear your mind and sharpen you focus.
With your family, you can take a family vacation. Or, you can go out to everyone’s favorite restaurant after going to the movies or a play. There is nothing more joyous then seeing a child’s face light up when they are having fun.
Single women love nothing better than a day at the spa. A good day is to book an appointment to have your body pampered from head to toe. You can get a facial, massage, mani/pedi, and a hair/face makeover. Doesn’t that sound good?
Well, those that have become involved in the network marketing business state that they are living the good life. These folks are doing things, going places, and meeting people like never before. I know they seem happy and relaxed, and I want to be like this as well.
A fulfilled life is just as important as a good life. A fulfilled life is living with purpose. You look forward to each day’s challenges, and you handle them with fervor and enthusiasm. The reason being you don’t let them get to you. You see each day as a chance to grow and learn. Each day is also your opportunity to be a blessing to someone else. In MLM, you can uplift and inspire your team. You want your recruits to have the same pleasures in life that you have.
You never know who needs a smile or word of encouragement, and you are the one who is supposed to deliver it. You might not be on the receiving end, but the fact that you are the person to give it is just as important. Do you notice that some folks are so blessed in life? Even when they hit a bump in the road, they count it a joy. The result is a life filled with abundance and prosperity.
Now, if you notice, the folks who believe that being a blessing to someone are all about power and control, their lives are usually in continuous turmoil. I am just saying that you get out of life what you put in it. If you are a negative person who never has anything nice to say about anyone or anything, that is exactly the type of life you live and have.
On the other hand, if you are a positive person, whose daily goal is to contribute something to the people and the world as a whole, your life will reap abundance. You see each new day as a chance to do something new.
You aren’t dragging around, talking about, “Here’s another crappy day. I should have stayed in bed.” You rejoice for the ability to breathe, live, and see another day. When that is your “makeup,” others feed off of your energy.
I will put it to you this way: do you know people that when you see them coming anywhere near you, you cringe? LOL…I know many people that when I laid eyes on them, I’m like, “Oh dear, here we go.”
Don’t let this be the way people see you. The thing is it isn’t fear. Some people actually love this type of reputation. But it isn’t people are scared of you; far from it. They just hate being in your presence. This is not the reputation you want to have.
Now, let me get to Charlie & Debbie Kalb. This power couple is Royal Black Diamond Executives with MonaVie, and their monthly residual income is at $110,000.00. Debbie says that since they were in people-related businesses in the past, when the opportunity with MonaVie presented itself, it was a win-win situation. They were able to use their people skills to help move people along their path to prosperity.
For 20 years, Debbie Kalb was a hair stylist who ran her own beauty salon. Since 1973, Charlie had been in the real estate business. Charlie & Debbie love being in relational businesses. The pair believes their success has always been on how they treated other people.
This is why they have been able to succeed so quickly in multilevel marketing. They didn’t have to read any self-help books, because they already had the knowledge and expertise on how to connect with others. Charlie & Debbie didn’t have to change who they were; they have always been the type of people that people like being around.
Debbie and Charlie Kalb carry themselves with integrity. So, when they approach their acquaintances and friends with Mona Vie, they wanted to be a part of it because, these individuals knew what type of people Charlie & Debbie were.
Charlie Kalb says that he doesn’t consider working in MLM as hard work. As a matter of fact, he has achieved a level of prosperity in three to six months that would have taken him a lifetime in the real estate industry. More importantly, three to six months later, their team members are experiencing time and financial freedom as well. They are traveling the world, and these two say they are excited about their future with Mona Vie USA.
With the Kalbs, multilevel marketing has become a family affair. Charlie’s mother and the couple’s daughters are independent distributors. Even their grandchildren are a part of the business, and they love the fact that they can work together to being successful. Debbie stated that anything they do, they do as a family unit and that includes extended family.
This part I couldn’t believe, but here it goes: Charlie said that the whole family lives together under one roof, and they have been doing so for 20 years. Wow! That is remarkable! I don’t know about you, but I have some family members I don’t want to be around for 20 seconds, let alone 20 years. This is a special level of love and commitment. I am so not mad at the Kalb family.
Charlie did admit that it takes a little bit of work….LOL. But, he is quick to point out that it is pretty exciting. One thing that he says is that while there is responsibility for each other, there is also accountability. This means that each team member is accountable to the team and to the company.
Each day, Charlie and Debbie get up in the morning, and they spend time with their grandchildren. Through the MonaVie multilevel marketing business, they were able to change their circumstances. And they also enjoy the fact that they are helping a lot of other families become financially-free as well.
When it comes to meetings and events, the whole Kalb clan travels in a motor coach bus. Charlie says it is great revenge for all those who said that the MLM business wouldn’t work for them; to see his family riding in comfort and style. One thing that Charlie points out is that his children and his family are his friends. He said that there is no one else he would rather share his wealth with than with them.
Debbie & Charlie have many vacation resorts. However, for them, the cars and the homes are just tools. They are just to be used and shared. If you are not willing to share your tools with others, what is the point of having them?
They compare building their business to herding cats; there is a lot of chaos. They said the key to their success is not to be sidetracked by the distractions, but to stay focus on where you are going and what you need to do.
Founded in 2004, Mona Vie is a private, MLM business that offers nutritional products made from fruits and vegetable purees and powders. In 2012, Mona Vie Australia topped the MLM list for enrollments and commission payments. Monavi also runs a charity called the MORE Project.
MonaVie commission plan is typical of MLMs. As an independent distributor, you earn a bonus for every product your customer purchases. If your customer decides to become an independent distributor, you earn a bonus on that. For every product your recruit’s customer purchases, you earn a bonus on that. There is the possibility to get the fulfilled life you seek with this multilevel marketing company.
