O, Canada! – Le-Vel’s Toronto Lifestyle Getaway

O, Canada! – Le-Vel’s Toronto Lifestyle Getaway

We’re home from our incredible Toronto Lifestyle Getaway. It was absolutely amazing!

On Friday evening, June 23, we threw a bash for Thrivers at the Fairmont Royal York. It wasn’t a black-tie affair. Instead, we told attendees to wear their favorite thrift-shop finds. They showed up in their bargain-basement favorites and pulled out all the stops with their creativity. Check out our accompanying photos for proof. We shared a lot of laughs that night! Co-CEO Paul Gravette and COO Drew Hoffman hosted the party. They made two huge announcements from stage, and the crowd went crazy when they heard the news!

  • First, we’re headed to Puerto Vallarta in October for our next Lifestyle Getaway destination.
  • Second, we’re re-releasing DFT DUO on Monday, July 3, 2017.

Paul and Drew also welcomed five dedicated leaders to the stage. These top-performing Brand Promoters shared how they’re using DFT DUO to take their businesses to the next level. It was a super-charged night of inspiration and excitement. As you’ve heard, DFT DUO is our most successful product launch to date. It’s creating so much momentum in the field. Customers are already getting their health and their lives on track with this game-changing product.

Next, we held our spectacular VIP event at the Arcadian Court, one of Toronto’s oldest ballrooms. Arcadian Court is an Art Deco-style building with 360-degree city views. During the event, we recognized our top-performing Promoters during the qualifying months. Here’s a cool fact: More than 50 percent of the VIP dinner attendees in Toronto were first-time qualifiers. Many more high-quality Brand Promoters are moving up the ranks at Le-Vel, and that’s incredibly exciting for our future!

Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary this year, and we were right in the center of the festivities. From start to finish, Toronto threw us one big party! Thrivers took in everything Toronto has to offer during those action-packed four days. They visited Niagara Falls, went to a Toronto Blue Jays game, dined at world-class restaurants and soaked up the cultural diversity of Canada’s largest city.

Your Morning Routine is the Key to Success

Your Morning Routine is the Key to Success

The morning hours are undoubtedly the most critical time of the day. Why? You’re less likely to be interrupted. During the wee hours of the morning, you set tone for your day. Whether you use the time for self-care or you’re just getting a jumpstart on your task list, your morning routine determines your mindset.

There’s no right routine that works for everyone. You’ll determine yours based on what matters to you. But, to help inspire you, here are a few habits you might consider making your own:

Jot down tasks the night before. Many of us wander through the morning unfocused, waiting for the day to happen to us. Writing down your to-do list the night before starts your day with purpose. You might even sleep better, too!

Wake up earlier. Yes, this one’s tough. But trust us – you won’t regret it. How many of us wish we had more hours in the day? Well, this is your chance to gain a few back. The payoff is huge: The early morning hours are yours alone. You’re in full control – nobody needs you for anything.

When you make the Thrive Experience from Le-Vel part of your morning, three simple steps become part of your a.m. routine to help you begin with energy and the nutrition you need to conquer whatever lies ahead.  The simplicity of doing those three steps: Thrive capsules, Thrive Mix and Thrive Premium Lifestyle DFT, makes it easy to have a healthy start.

Exercise. Study after study has proven the benefits of an early morning workout. Aside from the obvious cardiovascular benefits, exercise lowers stress, increases energy levels and focus, and leads to better sleep. Any type of movement in the brief time after waking is helpful, whether that is doing a yoga class or hitting the racquetball court with a friend.  You might also notice that you can do some of your best thinking while exercising.

‘Eat that Frog.’ What’s the biggest task on your list – the one you don’t want to tackle? Take it on first, before anything else. That’s the strategy author Brian Tracy recommends in his game-changing book, Eat That Frog! 21 Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time. When your feet hit the floor in the morning, take action immediately. Can you imagine how great it will feel to get your hardest task out of the way before breakfast?

Nutrition is key. At Le-Vel, we believe that starting your day on the right foot can make all the difference. We also believe that taking care of yourself shouldn’t be complicated. That’s why the Thrive Experience was designed to deliver you optimal nutrition in three easy steps. Complete them in the morning as recommended, and you’re done. Premium-grade ingredients deliver all-day benefits like mental clarity, appetite management and immune support.THRIVE-Experience-Products_COMP_RGB_HR
Get inspired. Listen to or read from your favorite motivational source. This can be as simple as reading an inspiring quote and considering how it applies to your own life. Many entrepreneurs listen to motivational leaders first thing in the morning or during drive time.  Starting the day with motivation makes sure your mind is in the right place as you begin your daily tasks.

Do you have advice for how to start each day right?  Tell us about your morning routine in the comments.

Toronto Le-Vel Lifestyle Getaway – Discover the city

Toronto Le-Vel Lifestyle Getaway – Discover the city

By now you’ve probably heard about the Toronto Le-Vel Lifestyle Getaway coming up from June 22-25 in Toronto, Ontario.  With a nod to all of our Canadian Thrivers and those who have yet to discover Canada, this Lifestyle Getaway will be like no other. If you’ve never been to Toronto, trust us – you don’t want to miss it!

What makes Toronto the best place for the next Le-Vel Lifestyle Getaway? As Canada’s largest city, Toronto is one of the world’s most culturally diverse places. In fact, it’s nicknamed “the world within a city.” Each of its neighborhoods has a distinct flavor and there is much to discover around every corner.

Toronto Must Sees:

Between parties and getting together with your fellow Thrivers, you’ll have free time to check out the city.  Here are just a few sights you’ll want to catch while you’re in Toronto:

If you’ve got a taste for shopping or want to reward yourself with something special, go to the “Mink Mile.”  It is Toronto’s version of Rodeo Drive, for fabulous shopping and to see and be seen.

At The Royal Ontario Museum, the largest natural history museum in Canada, you can view exhibitions on ancient civilization, architecture, sculpture, natural species and much more.

Want to see the city from a different perspective?  Check out the CN Tower. It stands 553 meters, or 1,815 feet, above Toronto’s skyline. You can take a glass elevator ride to the top for an eye-popping view and you can even have dinner in the 360 degree rotating restaurant.

Another place not to miss is the lively and quirky Kensington Market.  Toronto’s diversity comes to life here.  You’ll love the authentic cuisine, vintage clothing, souvenirs and art.

And probably at the top of everyone’s list is the breathtaking Niagara Falls State Park.  Don’t miss the jaw-dropping views from this side of the Falls including the famed Horseshoe Falls.  The park is just a 90-minute one-way drive from Toronto.

The Rise and THRIVE of Emmitt Smith

The Rise and THRIVE of Emmitt Smith

By now, you’ve heard about Le-Vel’s ongoing video series, The Rise and THRIVE of Emmitt Smith. Emmitt Smith represents what rising and thriving is all about.  This former Dallas Cowboys running back is one of professional football’s most accomplished players in history. Although he’s been retired from football for 12 years, he keeps proving again and again what it means to be a thriver.

In fact, Rise and THRIVE could very well be the title of Emmitt’s life story. Throughout his life, Emmitt has confronted challenges boldly, with perseverance and dignity.

His story begins in 1969 in Pensacola, Florida, where, as a youth, Emmitt began playing football at the Salvation Army. While he dreamed of one day playing for the NFL, his family’s financial difficulties made that goal seem unlikely.

Nevertheless, Emmitt was a star athlete in high school, even as he juggled odd jobs to support his family. He later went on to play football for the University of Florida Gators. In his junior year of college, his NFL dream became a reality: The Dallas Cowboys came calling, and Emmitt never looked back.

He spent the next 13 seasons with the Cowboys, followed by two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals before his retirement in 2005. During his amazing 15-year career, he established numerous records that remain standing today.

Emmitt-Smith-Dallas-Field

Emmitt continues to rank as the all-time leading rusher with 18,355 career rushing yards, and the all-time rushing touchdown record holder with 164 touchdowns. He holds three Super Bowl champion rings and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2010.

After his retirement, he became a football analyst for ESPN and the NFL Network and founded several real estate development, financing, construction and technology companies. He is the author of Game On, a book in which he shares the principles that have inspired his success both on and off the football field.

And, never one to turn down an opportunity to try something new, Emmitt also won “Dancing with the Stars” with his partner, Cheryl Burke, in 2006. Emmitt and his wife, Pat, are the founders of the Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities, which provides educational and enrichment opportunities to underserved children. He’s a much-loved figure in the city of Dallas, where he, Pat, and their five children have resided for many years.

Emmitt is a powerful example of how the refusal to quit – and the commitment to thrive under any circumstances – can turn seemingly impossible dreams into realities. That’s the very spirit behind our entire THRIVE product line, and the community that connects us all – employees, Brand Promoters and customers alike. His philosophy for life is one that motivates and inspires: “What do you want for yourself? Do you want to be successful, and are you willing to pay the price? That’s the decision we have to make every day of our lives.”

Look for more details on The Rise and THRIVE of Emmitt Smith – including some exclusive video clips from the series — coming soon!
