It’s Time To Re-Fire!

As a friend told me recently, it’s not time to retire, it’s time to re-fire!



Hi Life Lessons Community. Dallin and Karee from home here in Utah on the 10th of July. I hope you enjoyed independence day. First thing we’d like to say is thank you to all of those who offered your condolences on my father’s passing this coming Monday it’ll be 4 weeks. I miss him and I’ll miss him every day for the rest of my life. He was and is the best man I know. Karee’s fathers also in very critical condition, he’s bed ridden. 24 hours a day, so it’s like God gave us this season in our lives so we could be there for our fathers and our mothers I am so grateful for the memories that we created over the last year and I was fortunate enough through this industry of networking, to be blessed enough to be able to take my dad to the masters and take him to the Super Bowl and create some amazing experiences together with Karee and some places around that world, some places around that world.

Isn’t that wonderful? Life is about your relationships and creating memories. Retirement hasn’t been everything it’s cracked up to be because we love people and we love relationships and we love providing hope and opportunity. So we told you that around the 10th of July we would have an announcement for you and that is this. A year ago more than a year ago I lost control of the company, you all know that I am not going to dredge up the past. I said if we were ever to do this again we’d never lose control. So we thought long and hard, we have been on our knees a lot. We just simply just want to do what God wants us to do. And we believe that God wants us to use the talent and the gifts that he’s given us, like he wants you to use your gifts and talents as well. I like golf but I don’t think playing that every day is going to bring much significance to the world.

So we have every intention of starting another opportunity in direct selling in July of 2016. That’s when my non-compete agreement expires so I will be spending the next year Karee and I, going to the 4 corners of the earth if we have to – to find the right story. Which products can be birthed out a story. and then we’ll launch in July of 2016 We won’t do it if I feel like it’s an 8/10 or a 9/10. We will only do it if both of us are equally out and believe it is a 10/10 and then we will put the right people together the right plan and story together, keep it simple and take an opportunity around the world and do it again. Number three has always been by favorite number. And I’ve help start two companies that have done billions of dollars in this industry and paid out billions in commissions.

And that’s a record I’m very, very proud of. And I don’t say that to boast, I say it because we love making differences in the lives of people and one of the things we love doing is aligning ourselves with non-profit organizations and be able to give back and help those less fortunate. So it is much as number three is my favorite number, I have every expectation that God willing, this next venture will be the most successful venture that we’ve done to date. Maybe that’s a sign this plane’s taking off. We used to have a plane that we would land a few miles from here. And maybe we’ll get another one and we’ll start coming to your city showing you an opportunity. Now with that said, let me say that if you’re a MonaVie distributor that I can’t talk to you. I want to encourage to grow where you were birthed. There are 6+ Billion people in the world we believe that we are assigned to certain people and if and when we launch this next venture the right people will come and we will do everything we can to lead wisely, never losing control and doing it for the remainder of our lives.

We just wanted to let you know today because we like to be honest. We love this industry, we love people and love providing hope and opportunity and one of the motivations for me was I had a lot of conversations with my dad over the last few months of his live and the questions I was able to ask him all the questions I ever wanted to ask like “if you had to do it all over again what would you do?” “What era of your life did you enjoy the most?” “What are the things you learned most in your life?” One of the things he actually said to my daughter Maddy was when she asked him for advice he said “Don’t get too comfortable.” And I thought quite a bit about that and I’m thinking we’re pretty comfortable right now, let’s get out of our comfort zone and think outside the box and say if not us, then who? There’s some good companies in the world but Karee and I we want to go out and do something in magnificent fashion and do it for the rest of our lives, giving back and creating hope and opportunity for people around the globe. We don’t plan on opening the world all in one month or year.

We’re not going to be in a hurry. We’ll probably open three of four markets day one and we’ll go from there. So that’s our message today. Part of the reason I’m telling you this is don’t expect a video message every week or two on Life Lessons because with us making this decision, we’re now going to be spending the vast majority of our times scouring the world, coming up with the right story to crate products. Putting the people together so come July 2016, people will be able to declare their own independence with an opportunity that they can work in and really put forth their effort in for the remainder of our days, like we will be doing for the reminder of our days. From our home to yours, god bless you during this July season. Enjoy this summer and may all of your greatest dreams, hopes and desires come true if you’re willing to put forth the time effort and commitment. God Bless.

  5. Good on ya Dallin & Karree … eagles aren’t meant to be sedentary land dwellers, they’re designed to soar high above the clouds and do spectacular things … amazing things. So glad to hear that both of you have decided to spread those wings once again. Dallin, I left you a voice message many, many years ago during the ol’USANA days. I was a firefighter / paramedic at the time and was, let’s just say, “struggling” to say the least. Never expecting to hear back from such a busy person, one lonely late night in my stations office (with nothing on but the radio lights and walkie-talkie chargers … casting an eerie yet comfortable glow in the room) I decided to check my voice-mail. Upon doing so, I was almost knocked out of my chair by what I heard. On the other end a warm, but powerful and familiar voice said, “Hey Doug … this is Dallin Larsen.” You proceeded to tell me how blown away you were with the message I had left you and how much it was appreciated. You continued on for what seemed to be the longest time, often times just talking, but always reassuring me and confidently reminding me that I could do or be any thing I wanted if I put my mind to it … something like that, ha!! Although the “particular” details of your message escape me now (some 25 yrs. + / – later), you’ll never now how much that message of encouragement meant to this young firefighter. Although I never took it over the top in networking, your message sustained me in so many other areas of my life that it would be impossible for me to describe them all. Suffice to say your words picked me up while so many other things in life seemed to be trying to drag me down. The bottom line to all this, I can never say thank you enough for so profoundly affecting my life … changing my belief systems and opening my mind up to “possibilities.” I guess there was more that just a bit of hero worship going on at the time … and my “hero” absolutely, positively did not disappoint!! Came through with flying colors and knocked it out of the ballpark as a matter of fact!! I’d always hoped to have the opportunity to tell you this story … well, here’s to that “shot in the dark” as we say. Best wishes my friends, in everything you do.

    1. Dear Doug, I don’t know that I’ve ever received a more heart warming message in my entire life. Thank you so very much for your words. I don’t remember leaving you that message but I know that I wouldn’t have left you that message had I not had an impression to do so. I’m grateful something I said made a positive impact on your life. I hope to meet up with you again at some point to say hi and give you a hug. And, may the remainder of your life, like mine, be lives of significance as we bless others and make a difference for good. Sincerely, Dallin

  6. Dallin & Karree: Greetings from down under in New Zealand, that’s awesome news, great to hear your news.

  7. What a blessing you both have been to so many! We wish you the best. Thank you for the journey and the season we had in MonaVie!

  8. I am so excited to hear that you will be coming back as a leader in the industry. Please contact me with your new adventure.

    I look forward to it!

    God Bless,
