WAYS TO EARN INCOME At MonaVie, our WITH MONAVIE distributors are our most important asset, DIRECT SALES and we reward them accordingly with an BULK ORDER BONUS exceptionally generous compensation plan. FIRST ORDER BONUS The first step is simple: achieve the rank of Star and then help others to become Stars in your STAR MAKER BONUS MonaVie organization. TEAM COMMISSIONS As you review the following 8 Ways to Earn Income through MonaVie’s compensation plan, keep in mind that the AutoShip program EXECUTIVE CHECK MATCH (recommended but not required) is the surest way to maximize your commission choices and take full advantage of the compensation plan. LEADERSHIP POOLS MULTIPLE BUSINESS CENTERSDIRECT SALES BULK ORDER BONUS (BOB)Retail sales allow you to earn income by purchasing product at the wholesale Each time someone you’ve personallyprice and then selling it at the retail price.

If you are not qualified in the week the first order is placed,you will have the following three weeks to become qualified in order to earn the FOB.STAR MAKER BONUSQualified distributors with at least 200 PV earn a $40 Star Maker Bonus each time one of their personally sponsored distributorsreaches the rank of Star. If the sponsor is not qualified in the first week that the personally sponsored distributor achieves therank of Star, the sponsor will have the following three weeks to become qualified in order to earn the Star Maker Bonus.Direct sales, BOB, FOB, and the Star Maker Bonus are designed primarily to help new distributors begin earning income withMonaVie, while team commissions, Executive Check Match, and our leadership pools are designed for wealth creation.* Active: Must purchase a minimum of 100 PV every four weeks.† Qualified: Must have at least one personally sponsored and active distributor on both your left and right legs.
  3. 3. TEAM COMMISSIONS Team commissions FROM SALES are the fundamental building block of the MonaVie compensation plan. As a new distributor, your focus will be on creating retail and preferred customers, as well as building a distributor SALES FORCE. The team commissions portion of our plan is binary. Binary means that you will be placed in one of two legs (right or left) in your sponsor’s organization. You will then be compensated based on successfully building two legs of your own. Your sponsor (or anyone else in your upline) may also place people in your organization. As your group begins to grow, you are entitled to team commissions based on the total volume generated in your lesser leg. P PERSONALLY SPONSORED Calculating team commissions: If you and YOU your two personally sponsored distributors GROUP are active with at least 100 PV, you qualify DISTRIBUTORS 200 PV 50 PV for up to 10% in team commissions. * Team commissions are earned on your G LE 200 PV 200 PV P lesser volume leg and begin at 500 FT LE accumulated GV (group volume) on this RI G HT 200 PV leg, and on every 100 points thereafter.

For team commissions to be paid Total GV 500 (Lesser Leg) in subsequent weeks, there must be a Total GV 650 minimum of 500 accumulated GV. Any (Greater Leg) week your personal volume is over 200 PV, the overage will be applied to your lesser volume leg. Team commissions are limited to $10,000 per week, per business center. Although team commissions may be In this example, you are active with 100 PV. earned by being active with 100 PV, you You are also qualified because you have a can maximize your earnings with our FOB, BOB, and Star Maker Bonus by remaining personally sponsored distributor on your right active with 200 PV. leg who is active with 200 PV and a personally sponsored distributor on your left leg who is active with 100 PV.

You may earn an Executive Check Match • An Executive Check Match is paid not only on executives found in each of on team commissions earned by all your personal enrollment tree legs, but also distributors in your enrollment tree. on distributors at the various Star ranks. A generation ends when a qualified executive is found, regardless of depth. The Executive Check Match has unlimited width. Therefore, to maximize your income, continue advancing to higher Executive ranks and personally sponsoring distributors, thereby creating more personal enrollment tree legs on which you can earn an Executive Check Match. Let’s look at the leg that begins with Mr. B. In Figure 1 is designed to help you better this leg, you would earn an Executive Check understand the Executive Check Match Match through Ms. E1 because she is the fourth program. In the example, you are a qualified generation executive.

Match on Mr. K and Mr. L, and that would end your first generation. Let’s look at one final example. On the personal enrollment tree legs beginning with Mr. F and Ms. G, no executive exists in either of these two lines; therefore, everyone in these two lines is considered first generation. To maximize your earnings with the MonaVie Executive Check Match program, you should strive to reach our highest Executive ranks by sponsoring and supporting as many personal enrollment tree legs as possible. * The Executive Check Match is paid weekly and is based on a floating percentage. MonaVie guarantees a 50% weekly payout of commissionable volume. After the various other ways of earning commissions with MonaVie are calculated, any remaining available commissions (up to the 50% figure) are allocated to the Executive Check Match and then paid, along with other earned commissions for the week. Bronze Executives and above must be active with at least 200 PV to earn an Executive Check Match. Weekly commissions from an Executive Check Match cannot exceed the volume from your lesser volume leg.2

  9. 9. Income Disclosure StatementMID-YEAR 2008 The Income Disclosure Statement is a reflection of MonaVie’s rewarding opportunity. The following chart represents the average earn- ings of MonaVie Distributors and provides high, low, and average weekly income information, as well as annualized averages. Average Weekly % of Weekly Income (US Dollars) Weekly Annualized Number of Average Average Active Distributor Rank Average Distributors Paid Weekly Average Hours High Low Check at This Rank Distributors Check Worked* Distributor 26,471 44% $500 $0 $32 $1,660 7 Star 21,972 36% $681 $0 $41 $2,115 9 Star 500 6,612 11% $1,000 $50 $82 $4,261 9 Star 1000 2,854 5% $1,000 $100 $180 $9,357 9 Bronze Executive 1,042 2% $1,000 $200 $365 $18,989 10 Silver Executive 563 1% $1,500 $300 $570 $29,630 12 Gold Executive 332 1% $2,500 $500 $1,019 $52,969 14 Ruby Executive 117 1% $5,000 $1,000 $1,998 $103,891 18 Emerald Executive 60 1% $7,500 $1,541 $3,063 $159,281 20 Diamond Executive 32 1% $10,000 $2,013 $3,868 $201,161 24 Blue Diamond Executive 84 1% $20,000 $2,808 $8,162 $424,430 25 Hawaiian Blue Diamond 25 1% $25,000 $5,628 $12,834 $667,352 27 Executive Black Diamond 19 1% $99,766 $6,687 $29,760 $1,547,510 32 Royal Black Diamond 4 1% $92,618 $23,203 $51,689 $2,687,819 40 Presidential Black Diamond 1 1% $83,206 $40,740 $62,347 $3,242,026 40 Imperial Black Diamond 1 1% $127,285 $76,769 $94,013 $4,888,674 40 Crowne Black Diamond 1 1% $139,491 $127,780 $132,326 $6,880,937 40 The income statistics above are for all MonaVie Distributors who were paid commissions during the period from June 30, 2007 to June 27, 2008, at the above ranks, excluding rank advancement bonuses. A “Distributor” is defined as any person who: (1) executed a MonaVie Distributor Application and Agreement; (2) has sponsored at least one person; (3) has received at least one non-retail commission check; and (4) has been active in any of the eight weeks preceding the commissions period (“active” is defined in the MonaVie Compensation Plan as having generated 100 PV (Personal Volume) in a four-week period). Note that this excludes retail cus- tomers, preferred customers, retailers (those who have received a retail bonus only), pre-enrollees, distributors who did not renew, and customers, retailers, or distributors whose relationships with MonaVie were revoked. An individual who has executed a MonaVie Inde- pendent Distributor Application and Agreement, but has not fulfilled the four criteria enumerated above is not a Distributor. That person is simply a wholesale customer. If, and only when, all four criteria are satisfied does that person become a Distributor. Accordingly, the status of an individual can, and sometimes does, change throughout the course of a year. For example, Mary enrolls as a Customer in February. In April, she qualifies to become a Distributor and maintains her qualification through May. In June she is inactive, and there- fore, her status is that of a Customer. In July, she begins retailing products to a few customers, and thus, becomes a Retailer (but not a Distributor). In August, she again qualifies as a Distributor but fails to remain qualified for the remainder of the year. For the purposes of this Income Disclosure Statement, Mary will only be considered a Distributor during the months of April, May, and August. The average annualized income for all Distributors during this period was $3,985.09. From July 2007 to June 2008, approximately 91% of individuals who executed a MonaVie Distributor Application and Agreement are considered wholesale customers. The earnings of the Distributors in this chart are not necessarily representative of the income, if any, that a MonaVie Distributor can or will earn through his or her participation in the MonaVie Compensation Plan. These figures should not be considered as guarantees or projections of your actual earnings or profits. Any representation or guarantee of earnings would be misleading. Success with MonaVie results only from successful sales efforts, which require hard work, diligence, and leadership. Your success will depend upon how effectively you exercise these qualities. * hese figures are derived from a survey performed by MonaVie through our online order system. Approximately 36,000 distributors responded to the survey, with a response rate of at least 13% for each of T the ranks listed above. Rev. 9-1-08
