When you think of good examples of memorable leaders throughout history the list is endless. Leaders have played a strong role in the development of society throughout time. The same is true with all groups of people--leaders will ultimately emerge, and often times you find that some are born with innate leadership abilities but more times than not those attributes are taught, learned behaviors that can be refined and perfected. Leaders are often trained and mentored by those that came before. When you think of ultra successful companies in todays environment, it is rare to not link the success to the leadership that helped to grow and evolve those companies. During the developmental phase of CorVive, Jeremy Fouts took the need to help people with personal growth very seriously. He knew that by deploying the principles of love, serve and care you have the chance to change people’s lives and watch them grow for the better. CorVive allows everyone the opportunity to grow where they are planted, and Jeremy is always looking for ways to help individuals cultivate their God-given skills. CorVive has made certain to give all individuals the opportunity to become outstanding leaders. Once you start to see leaders develop, you also start to see your efforts grow exponentially. Suddenly the heavy load isn’t always weighing on your own shoulders; with a group of leaders you have the ability to distribute efforts and witness your team evolve into a fine tuned machine. Want to know a secret? One of the most effective ways to help people develop their leadership skills is through an in person event…Leaders are built at events. This is why Jeremy Fouts has laid down a clear cadence of corporate events so that you have the support you need to help grow leaders amongst your team. Events allow their confidence to build in ways that cannot happen outside of a live leadership event. If you’re looking to add rocket fuel to your team it is imperative that you get them to every CorVive event possible. For repeat attendees, it affords you the opportunity to refill your tank so that you leave motivated and empowered. For new people, there is nothing more important than getting to your first CorVive event. It will be the deciding factor for how your leadership forms. When new people tap into success for the first time, it is often because they had recently attended a Corvive event. Check the events page often at www.corvive.com so you know when you have your next opportunity to stretch and grow as a leader…Because leaders are made at events.
Being one of only two players to win 5 super bowls makes Tom Brady a really special football quarterback.

However, that is only the beginning of what puts him in a league of his own. He has 4 Super Bowl MVP awards (the most), has been into a dozen Pro Bowls, has 2 league MPV awards to his name, and has seen his team win more division titles as a quarterback than anyone else. Tom Brady is easily in the list of the greatest athletes in the sport. He has been an inspiring figure to tens of millions. These quotes from this legend will not only help inspire you, but they can also provide you an insight into the stuff that makes him so great! "You can’t go out and practice average on Wednesday, average on Thursday, okay on Friday and then expect to play well on Sunday." "A lot of times I find that people who are blessed with the most talent don’t ever develop that attitude, and the ones who aren’t blessed in that way are the most competitive and have the biggest heart." "I think sometimes in life the biggest challenges end up being the best things that happen in your life." "You wanna know which ring is my favorite? The next one." My personal favorite quote from Tom Brady is the following: "You Push your body to the limits, but you have to train your body to deal with the limits."
In his Olympic career, Michael Phelps amassed twenty-eight medals – an incredible twenty-three of those being gold – both all-time Olympic records. Remarkably, he did so over the course of four Olympic games spanning twelve years. Michael Phelps has proven himself to be one of the greatest athletic champions of all time. Here are 10 quotes of wisdom from Phelps on high-performance, passion, and persistence to match his illustrious twenty-three gold medals. If you say can’t you’re restricting what you can do or ever will do. It doesn’t matter what else is going on. When you walk into your arena or your – whatever you excel at — you’re there to take care of the job that you have to do. If I didn’t swim my best, I’d think about it at school, at dinner, with my friends. It would drive me crazy. There are always going to be obstacles that come in your way, stay positive. People say to me, You’re so lucky. You get to see the world. But I don’t. I go to the hotel and the pools and back again. That’s it. You can’t put a limit to anything. The more you dream, the farther you get. I feel most at home in the water. I disappear. That’s where I belong. With so many people saying it couldn’t be done, all it takes is an imagination. I wouldn’t say anything is impossible. I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and put the work and time into it. When I feel tired, I just think about how great I will feel, once I finally reach my goal.

I am a huge advocate for strength training. However, let’s say you only have limited space and limited access to weights...my favorite space saving moves are as follows- Air Squats, Lunges, Standing calf raises, push-ups, planks, jumping jacks, jump rope, and mountain climbers. All of these exercises are sure to get your heart rate up and can all be modified to fit your fitness level! Product Power Jerry Briggs: What are your f avorite products and how do you maximize it/them? I think the obvious answer here is Cor Power. While it is very true that it helps immensely and plays a huge role in the amount of time I'm able to put in running without taking a day off, I'm going to go a different route and say HYDR8! My whole life I've struggled mightily with hamstring cramping, both while sleeping/laying in bed, and during the day after long, hard workouts. In recent years, I've had trouble with both legs cramping at the same time, effectively immobilizing me for a period of time, and even bringing tears to my eyes. The last cramp I experienced had been just about a week or so ago, after an 11 or 12 mile run. I called for help from my HYDR8 and consumed it quickly. Not even a whimper of a cramp the rest of the day, or since! I regularly consume a HYDR8 before and after a workout now, sometimes during too. It's the only thing I've ever had that makes the cramping subside and prevents them from recurring. Not Gatorade, not pickle juice, not salt tablets, nothing I've tried (and I think I've tried it all) has [...]
As we take the time to acknowledge the world around us, we can clearly see how things have changed over the past few months. It seems as though 2020 has brought more change than many of us expected or have experienced in a long time. Although this can seem intimidating, they will inevitably bring about good outcomes. One thing I know to be a fact is that change is constant – it is something we can always count on. When faced with change we have two options; see the positive and roll with it or get caught up in the fear and negativity of it. Oftentimes, I notice individuals usually deal with the latter. People tend to look over the many benefits change can bring about. The main benefit being personal growth. Anytime I have dealt with change, big or small, I always notice personal growth. However, the benefits don’t stop here – change also brings about new opportunities, new people, new environments, and fresh perspectives. Many of us like to try and have everything figured out and be in perfect control of our lives, but the reality of it is, we can’t – no matter how hard we try. Change doesn’t care what our plans are or how in control we wish to be, it’s coming and it’s best to expect it will be beyond our control. Our mindset and how we view change will determine how we respond to it, and our response will be what makes or breaks us. A quote I would like to leave you with is by Dan Millman. He said, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” I want to encourage you all to be present, embrace the change, and then build upon it.
Did you know there is actually a condition called overchoice? This happens when there are so many decisions that you can become overwhelmed, ultimately resulting in not making a decision at all. When it comes to purchasing something, it has been proven the simpler the choices, the more likely someone is to decide to make a purchase. Likewise, the more choices given, the likelihood of someone making a purchasing decision decreases incrementally. It seems relatively simple, but still, many companies have a plethora of products in their catalogs and expect that customers should have an easy time deciding what to take and how to take it. This unfortunate mistake often leads to prospective customers experiencing shopping paralysis, therefore nothing happens. As I look back on my career, I realize as important as the business side is and helping families gain financial independence, customers are even more important. Having a loyal customer base is what helps ensure company stability. They are the voice of whether or not your product is simple, effective and long lasting. When we started CorVive, the most important part of our mission statement was to love, serve, and care…right next to those words was the philosophy of keeping the company fun, simple, and refreshing. Every time we examined and then reexamined a product, we made sure it passed the test; is this product easy to understand, is it effective, and is it safe. This simple philosophy is why so many people connect with the amazing health benefits of the CorVive product line. Simple steps of using the product line. First thing in the morning one glass of water with CorRenew and CorBolic capsules Second, mix up a delicious CorPower protein supplement for breakfast Third, mix up a glass of CorNRG or CorXLR (keto). It really is that simple. Of course, we have a couple of complementary products, but even these are designed to fit nicely into each person’s lifestyle in order to maintain continuity.
After spending over a decade in the health and wellness space, I thought I had been introduced to every nutritional product under the sun. Because of this, we more often than not had innovators knocking down the door to showcase the latest in the health and wellness industry to my team. However, there is a tremendous amount of vetting that goes into introducing a product to the market. Numerous factors need to be evaluated and assessed when introducing any health supplement such as: Is it compliant with current governmental guidelines? What is the effectiveness? Is there a need for this type of supplement? What is the quality of the ingredients and where are they sourced? The list is endless. When it came time for me to begin working on a synergistic system for CorVive, I knew there had to be a concrete foundation when it came to health, wellness and longevity. I knew there were a few things that would be critical to ensure that people from all walks of life could experience the life-changing benefits of proper supplementation. First off, I knew I would need to team up with top formulators--and I did. It didn’t happen overnight, but I spent the time researching and interviewing award-winning formulators responsible for some of the biggest nutritional consumer brands. Our elite team went to work with a few key principles in mind: one, the products we developed would have to be simple - they would need to be part of a basic system that would be easy for people to incorporate into their lives; two, the products needed to be effective - they had to be proven in their given delivery system along with results seen by the consumer; and three, they had to be safe and made from the highest quality ingredients. With those three simple principles in mind, I am proud to say we were able to deliver a product line that is second to none. We only believe in using top grade ingredients that are sourced from here in the USA. We couldn’t be more proud of how CorVive’s unique product line is impacting lives. As we move into the future and continue to innovate, the same principles that made us successful to begin with will be the same principles which will propel us forward. We will continue sourcing superior quality raw ingredients for our synergetic formulas, while ensuring the price point allows our product line to be readily available for all, making sure the price is in reach of everyone. Stay tuned for the next blog here where I will be discussing the power of our simple, 3-step system.
