We are all guilty of it. Pushing a dinner date to the last minute, looking for a jacket while the Uber idles in the drive, putting off a last minute homework project; procrastination, the list is virtually endless. Additionally, we all know those people that live on the other end of the spectrum, when they arrive early, for them it is on time and on time is late, contrast that with those of us that believe being fashionably late is the only way to go. I’m not just talking about everyday time conflicts; I speak to a broader sense of maintaining commitments and experiencing the satisfaction of accomplishing tasks that lead to success. “Once you set goals you must set a timeline in which you wish to accomplish these benchmarks, although they may change, your commitment to see your goals through to the end should not waiver. This is the tightrope of procrastination. Constantly be checking in with yourself. There is no greater feeling than completing a goal, task, and project by your set date or even earlier. If you have yet to feel that satisfaction begin working on taking steps to accomplishing tasks today.”—Jeremy Fouts As it relates to your CorVive business there is a big difference between being a pushing person and being a prompt person. If people feel your urgency and excitement they will reflect that in your engagements as you discuss the CorVive lifestyle. As opposed to seeming desperate, lean and hungry—that look is never good on anyone and your prospects can feel those inclinations. Some of these tips might seem obvious, but since we are addressing procrastination, let's get some real world tips that can help. My top 3 tips for avoiding procrastination. -Organize your life (maybe grab that super organized friend to help you). Write down your routines and check in regularly. You will be surprised how quickly things move when you’re tracking closely. Once you nail one of your milestones mark it off and start working on the next one. -On that note: set clear goals and define a realistic timeline. That one is pretty straightforward. -And finally, prioritize. If you are having a hard time pushing through some of the heavier lifting choose times to work on lower hanging fruit that is easier to check off the box. Perfection is not realistic, but constant forward motion will benefit you greatly. We are moving into the fall, the best season for word-of-mouth marketing. Get out there with some solid goals and an unflawed ‘why’, I know you are capable of great things. With this you will see the satisfaction of releasing procrastination from your life!
Finding the boundaries of being a stay-at-home mom, an integral part of her kids schooling system behind the wheel of that iconic school bus and a general gatekeeper of life can be an interesting endeavor to juggle. But Brandi and Spencer Guidry seem to be finding the rhythm that works for them, now that CorVive has helped them to see the incredible things they are capable of. Spencer, a natural-born entrepreneur already had the finesse needed to guide an opportunity like CorVive and Brandi is right by his side as they both navigate the wonder of the CorVive world. On the cusp of Brandi and Spencer Guidry's tenth wedding anniversary they were off and running with CorVive, and as it goes with timing they managed to find CorVive in the perfect spot. CorVive being in its third year is positioned for explosive growth that often only comes around once-in-a-lifetime and for folks like Brandi and Spencer Guidry were prepared and ready for something like CorVive to come along, let’s just say it was a divine calling that everything came together when it did. Brandi often refers to trusting in the process and listening to your leaders and learning as they help you learn to fly. Luckily Brandi and Spencer Guidry were in good hands with sponsors like the Duhon’s; they couldn’t ask for a more driven and willing couple that is ready to lock arms with them and launch massive success. Brandi and Spencer Guidry hail from a beautiful part of the south called Carencro, LA. We caught up with Brandi just as she was patching up a sprain on her sporty kiddo, wrapping up a day at work, and packing to head out for a week long stretch to celebrate ten years with Spencer. She is an inspiration to talk to but she had some good sound bites that are worth repeating. “So many signs started to point to CorVive. We come from a place of faith and trust that we are receptive when things are put in our path for a reason... CorVive was definitely in that realm of accepting that a good thing had happened and we were going to go for it, knowing that we just need to trust in our leadership to help us navigate. We got in and we got moving quickly, we set dates immediately, we invited as many people as possible and everything just started clicking. It was amazing to see the response that happened when we just followed the process.” Things are just getting started for Brandi and Spencer Guidry and with leadership like the Duhon’s to follow, we know that they are going places. Having already qualified for CorVive’s bootcamp event in November—an intimate event that showcases upcoming advancements in CorVive's business systems, product strategy and the future of CorVive. “Folks like the Duhon’s and the Guidry’s are the reason I love CorVive so much; these are the people you want to not just do business with, but life with.

Always showing up, but never having to show off. The Rainwaters have a philosophy of success is not in their words, but in their actions. A perfect fit with CorVive, Candace and Larry Rainwater exemplify over and over again why CorVive is the right place and the right time. They live the principles of love, serve and care, all while combining just the right amount of determination to ultimately change thousands of lives (which they have done). Consistency has been the bedrock upon which the Rainwaters have built their business. Natural born entrepreneurs, they know the work it takes to feed a thriving business and balance life in the meantime. However, they have both mentioned that they have plenty of growing to do and CorVive has helped them beyond measure, as there couldn’t be one without the other. They have brought their own admirable style of leadership that is a playbook about helping others, and teach it along the way. Candace will never boast singularly about her success, but will quickly turn the light on a number of folks they are working with to lead to the trove of success. Whether that person is a new found friend or a long time acquaintance, the Rainwaters demonstrate an unparalleled ability to love without conditions. And these admirable characteristics keep a fresh field of wheat ready to go for the Rainwaters to continue to sow and harvest. One need not look far to see how the Rainwaters use their subtle influence to create winners. Just a short time ago Larry and his son entered a CorVive Transformation League contest and took home the gold. Without pushing or shoving, they led their son, Whitlee, to a pretty dramatic lifestyle change! (Don’t worry we will show you the proof in the pics) If you ever have the chance, join the Rainwaters for a quick conversation and see how they are truly intentional on building a CorVive business that stands the test of time—do it, take a minute to say ‘hello’. Better yet grab a ticket to the next CorVive event and you can listen to this friendly couple break down their secrets to finding long-lasting success. We promise you consistency will be central to their message, whether that be consistency in taking CorVive products to create a healthy lifestyle change or consistency with how you are approaching your life and your ‘why’. Winners take note from this playbook of two amazing people striving for an incredible dream. We are here for it. “The Rainwaters have a unique ability to change lives through their example. They never overdo it in a phony way: they are real to the core. We love the light they bring to CorVive because it illuminates everyone. Candace and Larry are never there to shade anyone’s spotlight.”—Jeremy Fouts See it to believe it. The Rainwater’s latest proof pics in caption. (Candace, Larry, and Whitley’s before and after pics and stats) [...]
Camilla Parsons Martinez is a firecracker! And we say that with the utmost respect. When Camillia and Martin Martinez were first introduced to CorVive, the culture, and the people she immediately went the extra mile and decided she was going to take positive physical change to the limits not just helping her friends and family, she decided she would become a certified health coach. This girl goes all in and does it with class. In under a year Camillia and Martin Martinez have traveled the world, got in incredible shape and have found deep meaning in the company of CorVive family. She often credits finding CorVive with helping her navigate a challenging time in her life. But we all have them and that is why we credit Camillia with bringing extra spark to CorVive. CorVive and people like Camillia and Martin Martinez go together. She is the type of person you trust your secrets with, but that you can also expect the truth from, so when it came to the main mantra of CorVive; love, serve and care…she dove all the way in and transformed her life spiritually, mentally and physically. And she has been one of the top customer recruiters ever to come into CorVive. Jeremy Fouts had to keep refreshing the screen when Camillia came onto the scene because she was bringing in customers on the daily. The reason that CorVive is sailing into year three with a bright future is because of people like Camillia. Amazing people are all around us, you just have to have a heart like Camillia to recognize those that could benefit from a little extra: love, service and caring. Get ‘em girl!
When you start traveling the world with like minded people a certain kind of magic happens, unbreakable bonds begin to develop, dreams become reality, tragedies of the past become distant memories, the future looks bright…these are all things that you find out when you’re with folks from CorVive like Monica and Kendall Staggers. Maybe it was the fact that on a recent CorVive rewards trip in the Dominican Republic for days the weather was perfect, but on karaoke night things got dicey when an unexpected ten minute downpour drenched us, but guess who was the first to get up and dance in the rain…The Staggers. They turned this blip into a fun moment and from then on the fun didn’t stop. We have a feeling this is what it is like with the Staggers, you give them lemons and you will find yourself sipping some delicious lemonade. Monica and Kendall Staggers are a dream team in CorVive. They immediately saw the potential of a young company perfectly positioned like CorVive…they see the astounding things that are about to happen with CorVive and they weren’t going to be caught off guard. Once they grasped the basics they were off and running. Their first week they were top producers and they haven’t looked back. They have plans to help everyone they can take advantage of the incredible journey that CorVive is going on and they want all of their friends and family to be there to be part of it. If you have the chance to meet Monica and Kendall Staggers take a minute to brainstorm with them, they are humble and kind, but also brilliant. It's like they could teach a master class on allowing people to be just intrigued enough to know what CorVive is and then have the perfect finesse in making sure that they understand the champion thoroughbred that CorVive is before it breaks out of the gates. With hearts filled with love and compassion the Staggers are what Jeremy Fouts calls “folks with integrity that beams from within.”
If you haven’t heard of the name Katherine Faul you are missing out! She is one of our most incredible up-and-coming CorVive leaders. Katherine is one of those people that you just want to be around because she has an infectious smile and laugh, not to mention that unforgettable voice. That soulful, buttery, tone that makes you feel like you’re listening to a full symphony when she just sings one line of...anything. If you’ve attended a CorVive event you may have heard her sing the Star Spangled Banner, and Lord willing we will get to hear more from her. Hurry to our next event, before she hits the road with her crew sharing her soulful music and CorVive along the way. As rewarding and as huge of a blessing being a mom is, let’s admit it moms are selfless. They are the ones that have your back like no one else ever will. And that was no different with Katherine Faul. After having kids back to back she felt like she had given up on some of her own dreams and ambitions. But when someone like Katherine commits to something she does it with all she has, and CorVive and its messaging struck a chord with this mom. She started off with CorVive products and immediately knew they were better than anything she had tried in the past. She began to drop weight and gain lean muscle, and in a few short months she was down 20 lbs and 25 total inches. That’s a big deal for mom’s everywhere. Raise your hand if you’ve been there! As she gears up for yet another CorVive Transformation League she is thrilled that this unique program offers her the opportunity to reach out to those who might not have been in the equation. She plans on hanging on to her past CorVive results because she has seen amazing changes both mentally and physically. She definitely wants to remind everyone that these products can do amazing things if you use them consistently. We look forward to seeing Katherine’s rise to the top, just as much as we look forward to hearing that incredible soulful voice. If the Fouts have anything to do with it, we think we will be hearing that beautiful voice a lot. Thanks Katherine! Stay tuned for our next Up-and-Coming CorVive Leaders blog!
Looks can be deceiving sometimes. We have all heard the old adage to “never judge a book by its cover,” well that is how we feel about our next feature endorser couple. From the outside looking in, these stunners had it all; a comfortable living, a beautiful family, the house with the picketed fence…but they were looking for more. But underneath the sheen was a humble couple looking for more, desiring to live a more fulfilling life. Nothing was necessarily wrong, but there was a small gap that could use a little bridge. Chase and Alison Smith were ready to chase after dreams and help others do the same; they just needed the right vehicle to take their lives to the next level. Alison is a rare homegrown Texas girl, while Chase comes from a small town in Kansas. They both followed their educations to careers they loved and are raising two beautiful kids. They worked hard and played hard. Enter a co-worker of Alison’s that set their life on a brand-new beautiful journey, the one and only Angie Harmon. For a year Alison ghosted Angie, she wasn’t quite ready to dip her toes in the entrepreneur pond, but once she saw the ways in which Angie’s life was changing in such a short amount of time, the tables turned and Alison became the seeker, tracking Angie down. Persistence does pay off, and so does not prejudging anyone. If Angie had just given up, Alison would have never benefitted from the amazing company that is CorVive. Additionally, if Angie would have just viewed them from how their lives appeared to be, she probably wouldn’t have thought CorVive was something they needed, but indeed, CorVive was a dream they were willing to pursue. Alison watched Angie turn unwanted baby weight into a fit-mamma in what seemed to be overnight, and Alison wanted in on the secret. Before long, Chase and Alison were on their own health and financial journey. In no time Alison went from 173 pounds down to 138 pounds losing her latest baby-weight along the way. The Smiths fell in love with CorVive, and in turn, started sharing it with everyone they loved. The list of friends and family with better health because of CorVive is staggering; from relatives off of cholesterol meds to dozens who have lost 40 pounds or more, CorVive has been a blessing. They have found greater faith and the benefits of counting those blessings as well. They find themselves praying as a family and growing closer by the day. Their hard work has allowed them to eliminate student loans, car loans, credit cards, everyday debt that most hard working Americans all have. To date, CorVive has helped them eliminate all debt minus their mortgage (and that one is next). Jeremy Fouts always knew there would be a day when CorVive would bless thousands, and as CorVive turns three years old, he is filled with gratitude that folks like a small town guy from [...]
If you saw Aaron Danenhauer today you would probably think he was an Instagram fitness influencer or maybe full-time celebrity trainer; both of which we are sure he is qualified to do. After all, Aaron is down 50 pounds! But there is more to this amazing human than meets the eye. Growing up participating in sports gave him the foundation he needed to stay in shape and use the best of the best in supplementation, but as it is for most of us, life eventually slows us down. Work begins to come before working out and the list of just living and getting by grows. When Aaron found CorVive it was a match made in heaven, as is usually the case, CorVive’s values aligned with Aaron’s ideologies. Not only were the products second to none, the company seemed almost too good to be true. He thought, "Is it possible that this company really has founders like Jeremy and Candice Fouts who always put others first, rather than the other way around, when profits always came before people." The more he learned and attended CorVive events, he knew that CorVive really was a company that was built on a foundation of simple principles, that most importantly included; love, serve and care. Before long, Aaron shot out of the starting blocks like an Olympic runner. He was going to share the CorVive message with anyone that was willing to accept his invitation to advance their lives in a positive direction. One of the best things about Aaron and his wonderful wife, Amanda Danenhauer, is their down-to-earth approach to life. They are the type of people that don’t have to chase down others to sell them something; no, they are individuals that live a life by example which attracts others to them. In a matter of months, the Danenhauers are on their way to hitting Cor12, but we all know that is just a stop this amazing couple will make on their way to Cor40 and beyond. Aaron understands the power of having a ‘why’ that makes you move mountains and he won’t stop until he is there. We have no doubt that his six digit income dream will soon become a reality, because he has developed and continues to work on the leadership skills needed to make dreams a reality while using your ‘why’ to power you through. We mentioned Aaron possibly modeling part time and it could be that being consistent with CorVive products and leading CorVive Transformation League teams to championships have kept him in tip-top shape. So even though those abs of steel are there, he is going to keep leaning out and helping as many people as he can do the same. He believes that all families should have the chance to experience CorVive in their lives, whether it be for better physical health or financial health everyone is worthy of experiencing it. Aaron and Amanda are geared up to help as many people as possible achieve success—from [...]
If you ever have the chance to sit down with Angie for a minute and ask her what the secret of life is…she seems like the type of person who just might know it. However, her coy smile will let you know she is going to keep that secret, but she will let you in on another secret that has changed her life…and it's CorVive. Living what most would consider the American dream, there was so much weighing on Angie’s mind when she found CorVive. She had married the man of her dreams a few years prior, she had an adorable couple of daughters and one on the way—deep down though she knew she was capable of more. This gal encompasses everything CorVive is. She is the epitome of love, service and caring. If you needed the shirt off her back, you wouldn’t even have to ask, she’d wrap you in it before you could get the words out. The time came when new baby arrived and as it is with jobs she new she had a limited amount of time to get back to the office. Although she loved her job, the dream of staying home with her husband and girls meant more to her. It is funny how fate can sometimes drop things in your lap at the most opportune times. Recently her husband had signed them up for a young company called CorVive and she was quickly realizing that the best-of-class products were working for her to get the baby weight off, and some of the products had her feeling better than she had felt in a long time. To sum it up, she knew she had a good horse and she was ready to tests its limits. In no time Angie knew that her ability to love and care would serve her well as she started to tap into her innovative spirit. She realized the philosophies that were in the DNA of CorVive aligned perfectly with the principles that she lived her life by. She continued to join each CorVive Transformation League and she coached others to success, but even more astonishing is that she was sharpening her leadership abilities to build a substantial business with CorVive. Before long, she and her husband Brennan became an unstoppable force; the sky was the limit for this power couple. She jumped in her car and fueled her life with love and the rest is a story that continues to be written. Like Jeremy Fouts has said many times, “you don’t find couples like the Harmon’s everyday; people that lead with their hearts and encourage others to do the same.” Back to Angie’s secrets: Consistency. By being consistent with her CorVive business she was able step away from her speech pathology business, allowing her to stay home with her 3 beautiful daughters. And let's not forget the products and her physical accomplishments; this one time 10 min mile jogger is now a 7 min mile runner! One of [...]
Sometimes during the holidays, there is a balancing act between remembering what the true spirit of Christmas is all about, contrasted by the desire to receive gifts. This has been a tricky year, as we have held sturdy through a variety of unique events that have created some real obstacles for living our lives the way we have been used to. For many, this time of year would represent receiving new clothes, bikes, the latest in technology, and the whole gamut of retail therapy. Given that this year created challenges of all shapes and sizes CorVive decided to take a less traditional route to this festive time of year. Rather than focusing on receiving, the CorVive founders and leadership decided to focus on the essentials of CorVive and decided to live the mission of love, serve, and care. As the season continues, the CorVive group has already gladly lent a much-needed helping hand to many families across the nation…families that were experiencing exceptional hardship. The range of needs that exist throughout communities is continuous, if there was a direct need that CorVive could help, we wanted to do just that…help. There were many chances for CorVive to be of service, but things like household appliances and goods or sometimes even basic needs, like winter clothes were needed. The holidays hold a special magic in the form of gratitude. This magic emotion can cure a lot of despondency and stress. When we count more of what we have and less of what we don’t have, our hearts immediately grow an inch. Our greatest dream as we continue to love, serve and care is to make CorVive a company that has resources that are far-reaching, so that we can always be on the ground finding opportunities to express love, serve, and care. The CorVive founders and leaders will always be grateful for the opportunity to be of service to those in need and are always looking for ways to help. So we thank you CorVive for sharing the message to others to love, serve, and care this holiday season. CorVive wishes you all a Merry Christmas and will continue to look for opportunities to be of service whenever possible. Happy Holidays CorVive family, we love and appreciate you all.
