Strivin’ and Thrivin’: Le-Vel Promoters Review THRIVE

Check out some of the latest THRIVE reviews shared by Le-Vel Promoters who aren’t just surviving … they’re Thriving!

“I am a 46-year-old married mother of seven … yes, seven amazing children ranging in age from nearly 30 down to 5. Life is always running. After having a health-related matter, my energy levels dropped. Also, I wasn’t getting the restful sleep I needed at night. I began to exhaust all energy just working, and would come home worn out after work. Just getting motivated to make dinner was a chore, and I had little to no energy left to spend time with my husband and kids. I felt like a disappointment to those who mattered most to me.

“My dear friend, Amy, introduced me to THRIVE in July 2016. I will never be able to thank her enough, as it has truly changed my life. Within the first four hours, I could feel a difference. I wasn’t sluggish, I was more focused, and I had an overall circle of clarity around me. I had no desire to drink even a sip of my daily coffee, nor did I long for my traditional midday soda. I slept soundly that first night. By day two, I knew THRIVE was something I just HAD to do for me, for my family, for my health and well-being.

“I have had zero tea, soda, or coffee since July 11, 2016 because I have no desire to drink it. I sleep solid every night, have lost weight, and I’m able to be the wife and mother my family deserves. My energy level is constant, I’m focused and my mind is clearer than it has been in years. I’ve been told I look younger, and I’ll gladly take that!” — De Anna Hundley

“I look at my 2015 picture that was taken one year prior to THRIVE, I look exhausted and just very run down. And now, I look happy and full of life thanks to THRIVE. Transformation doesn’t happen overnight; it takes time. But it will happen — trust me. I’m just thankful to have energy to play with my boys and workout, and my sleep is AMAZING. I get up at 5:30 a.m. with no problem. I can’t say enough wonderful things about the products. I’m a Thriver for life.” — Amanda Cooper

Amanda Cooper

“I’ve been Thriving right along with my wife for seven months now. Before THRIVE, I was drinking energy drinks, soda, coffee and anything that had lots of sugar in it to make it through my long days. When I got home, I didn’t want anything to do with my family; I just wanted to rest, watch TV, go to bed and do it all over again. One day that changed when I got invited to a Thrive Local here in Elk City, Oklahoma. It was the best decision I ever made. THRIVE has put so much joy and hope back into my life. I now have tremendous faith and confidence for a better future as a husband and father. I enjoy life again, and I became a Promoter for Le-Vel, because how could I not share this amazing product with all my family and friends?

“THRIVE is not intended to be a weight loss product, but it gives me the pure nutrition and vitamins I need to help in my journey to getting healthy. Did Thrive do this all on its own? No, but what it did do is give me the nutrition and vitamins that I needed, made me crave healthier foods, and gave me the energy I lacked to get me moving again. I’m becoming the husband and father my wife and four girls deserve to have.”  — John Ray

“As days went by, I noticed that even my cravings for sugar and carbs were decreasing, and I was actually craving fruits and vegetables. It truly was filling in my nutritional gaps, and my body was responding the way it was designed to respond. I noticed subtle changes in my physique over the next few months and now had levels of energy that not only got me through my day, but also supported me enough to hit the gym! Fast forward 10 months, and I’m now down 100 pounds and I feel like a brand- new person with a new chance on life! Thank you, Le-Vel, for producing this life-changing premium nutrition!” — Christopher Pendergrass

Christopher Pendergrass

“With THRIVE, I have natural, sustained energy all day without the need for any coffee in the morning. No more naps are taken, and my body is craving water over anything else. I must confess that I lost my Gold Status at Starbucks (I was driving there daily just for a pick-me-up.) My immune system was lacking the proper support. I was dealing with digestive challenges, general joint discomfort, ‘mommy brain,’ high stress levels, and I wasn’t sleeping soundly. Now, I wake up refreshed, my body feels so much more balanced, my digestive system is so much more normal, and my mommy-fog brain is gone! I’m a healthier person because of these products. I lost weight during my 8-week challenge, which boosted my self-esteem. My three steps in the morning have put me on the right path to clean routine of eating healthier, with no more junk food cravings. I’ve kickstarted my metabolism and energy level.” — Jacqueline Babler

Jacqueline Babler

 

“Prior to THRIVE, I was laid off, left without insurance and struggling to find a job where I could work from home. I ended up opening a small in-home daycare caring for two to three children at a time, and I was struggling to have enough energy to give these kids the quality care they deserve. Often I would be so tired I’d need to rest when they did. The final straw was when I went home for New Year’s and had to tell my family that I was no longer going to be able to safely drive home because I was so tired. Physically, I had hit a wall — I felt awful. My mind was foggy, and I was operating just by putting one foot in front of the other and crashing the minute the kids left. Within a week after starting THRIVE, I was once again getting the restful sleep I needed. I didn’t need to sleep or at least close my eyes as soon as the kids left. I was cleaning and reading to the kids again. Within a month, I ordered again and started noticing energy and that my moods were calm and the little things weren’t getting on my nerves. Most of all people that I see quite often have noticed that I’m feeling better; they tell me I don’t seem as stressed or as sensitive to things. I would like to challenge everyone reading this testimony to stop and think about someone you know who is struggling to live a quality life and please share this with them.”  — Tina Peterson

New Year, Less Clutter: Tips for Decluttering Your Life

by Le-Vel 3 Comments
New Year, Less Clutter: Tips for Decluttering Your Life

Have you heard the buzz about the book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing” by Marie Kondo? It’s a New York Times best-seller, so clearly, this how-to guide to simplifying your life has touched a nerve for millions of readers.

After the holiday buzz is through, it is the perfect time to delve in to the subject of clutter.  Time to clean up our lives and make way for the new year – something the Japanese do yearly as part of their New Year’s preparations.

But decluttering can be a scary proposition for those of us who like our stuff or just see it as too much of a process to begin.  The good news is that even starting small can lighten your mental and physical load. Here are a few tips to consider:

  • Set and maintain boundaries. When well-meaning friends or family offer to share items with you that they’ve decided they don’t need anymore, politely explain that you’re on a mission to declutter – and stick to it. If shopping is your weakness, make other plans. When birthdays and holiday celebrations roll around, think experiences versus tangible items. Tickets to a sporting event, dinner at a restaurant, or an afternoon rolling up your sleeves to help a local charity all present the gift of unforgettable memories for your spouse or children.
  • Focus on one room at a time. Don’t start pulling out the clutter in every room at the same time, that is the ticket to getting overwhelmed. Begin with the outer edge of the room with the easy stuff, like trash. Then gradually work your way into the center of the room. Make three piles: one for trash, one for donation and one for keeps.

  • If you haven’t used it in one year … then it’s time to part ways. If you think you might use it within a year, put it in a box and come back to it in one year’s time. If you haven’t used it yet, it’s time for it to go.
  • Get rid of duplicate items. How many mugs do you really need? Pare down your inventory – you’ll be happier for it.
  • Load donations into your car, and dispose of them immediately. Don’t let donation piles sit around for months.
  • If you’re a parent, your kids are inevitably bringing home loads of artwork. Admittedly, it’s tough to part with any of it, but if you don’t, you’ll be swimming in a sea of glitter and construction paper. Purchase a large plastic box with lid, and save only your favorites from each school year – say, 10 to 15 items per child.

  • Schedule time for decluttering. Some areas of the home are just prone to clutter; for example, the kitchen island or counters, the home office desk or the table in your entryway. Make it a point to do a sweep nightly or weekly. Small steps now prevent overwhelming tasks later.
  • Assign one spot for incoming mail/papers. Create an inbox on the counter, then go through it once a week. Make a rule for yourself that your inbox must be empty by the time Monday morning rolls around.
  • Celebrate every success. With each bag that either goes into your car for donation or into the trash, praise yourself for a job well done.

Remember, the hardest part is just getting started.  Begin with these steps and you’ll be on your way to living with less clutter in the New Year.  And who knows, you may feel a little lighter too!

Meet Paul Gravette Co-CEO of Le-Vel

Meet Paul Gravette Co-CEO of Le-Vel

Meet Paul Gravette

The Co-Founder, Co-CEO and Co-Owner of Le-Vel, Paul Gravette, took a few minutes out of his busy day to talk to us about the business and give a little insight into one of the men behind the world’s fastest growing wellness company.  From advice Paul has received to what’s fueling his passions, get ready to be inspired!

Early Lessons

Before launching Le-Vel with fellow Co-Founder Jason Camper in 2012, Paul Gravette was a seasoned entrepreneur, having spent 25 years involved in technology, communications and other ventures. Early in his career, Paul says, he was fortunate to meet several businessmen who taught by example and had a profound influence on him – particularly with regard to their work ethic. “I learned in my first business experience that if you really expect to achieve your dreams, you have to understand that dreams don’t happen without sacrifice. “I was around people who held each other and themselves accountable and worked hard 6-7 days a week.”

As Paul built companies from the ground up, he often thought of the best piece of advice he ever received, “’Paul, you don’t have to be 26 or 66 to figure things out in life.’ I think of those words at least once or twice a month. Advice is abundant about how to develop yourself in the business world. The key is to take time and absorb the advice, so you can grow from it.”

 

paul-gravette-jason-camper

Forming The Dream Team

When he first met Jason Camper, Paul says, “I knew his name, and he knew mine, but we’d never been in business together. We started chatting on the web, and I wanted to get together to sit down, notepads and pens in hand, and figure out what would make a very different and effective business model. When we first connected, one of the things that went really well for both of us was that we felt like we could shift an industry for the better, in a very positive direction.

We really focused on building a business that people could connect to for free. We wanted to build this business through a free customer network. We wanted to build a powerful customer acquisition model where a customer could simply refer two customers and get product free. We kind of grew from there.

“When we were first starting the company,” Paul continues, “we established our lanes to run in. That meant that I was going to go out and build the future network of this business and make sure the network felt a strong connection to our company and had the tools necessary to be successful. Jason was going to oversee the handling of the day-to-day operations, the infrastructure.

That said, we both had to wear a lot of hats; for instance, at the end of every day, if we needed to handle customer service issues, we did it. Shipping stuff out on our end, mailing out packages, whatever it took to get the job done and allow the company to grow. Today, it’s very different because we have many people who fill the spots we once held. I’m out in the field about 20 to 30 percent of the time. The other time, I’m working on everything we’re creating that allows us to continue evolving and improving: software, new projects coming in, reports within the software, studying the database, timelines for the business, everything.”

Paul-Gravettle-Le-Vel

A Passion for the Business

So why build a company and an opportunity around health and wellness? “Talk to anyone as it relates to their health, or their parents’ health, and you quickly have a conversation going, because it matters to everyone” Gravette says. “Unfortunately, most people are not giving you the best report, which means a lot of people can benefit from improved health and wellness. My theory is that if you see a niche, carve it out! 

There are tens of millions of customers who love supplementing their health to feel better or would love to do it if they came across the right product and company, so being in the health and wellness industry is a great place to be to help people.  It’s very fulfilling when you lay your head down at the end of each day; I hear so many stories when I’m traveling. People tell me they can’t believe how good they feel now. What would give me more fulfillment than this? It’s one of those things you can’t help but be passionate about.”

If he hadn’t been an entrepreneur, Paul says he would have gone into “entertainment, media – or, I would have done something related to my passion since I’ve been a child, automobiles.” In Paul’s off-hours, you might be surprised to learn that “I have an eye for design – landscape, architecture, interior concepts. I’m very big on visualizing how it all comes together. I’ve designed multiple homes—the landscaping, where the trees need to be, the interior decoration including the furnishings and the best layout. So many people go in and want to do landscaping, or build a home, and they just go with the plan developed by a designer, but you can build your own plan.”

Paul-Gravette-NYC

One Happy Man

When asked if there’s anything on his “bucket list” he has yet to tackle, he responds, “I don’t really think about things like that. I’ll tell you what, though — I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing — but if everything years from now is right where it is today, I’ll be one happy man. It’s not that I’m complacent, it’s just that I’m thankful for my life, my family, and my ability to help millions of people everyday.”

As he reflects over his life and his career, what accomplishment is Paul Gravette most proud of? “I’m proud of all of my surroundings. I’m proud of my faith, my family, and I’m definitely proud of Le-Vel.”

Strivin’ and Thrivin’: Reviews from Thrive Promoters

Here are just a few of the latest Thrive reviews shared by independent Brand Promoters and customers whose lives have been changed by Le-Vel:

“As I sit here on my way back from my sixth Lifestyle Getaway and seventh earned trip by Le-Vel, I cannot help but think back over the last 27 months. Today is my first day of being a Work At Home Mom (WAHM) all because of the one decision to say YES to a friend when asked to experience THRIVE. Never in a million years did I think these simple three steps in the first 30 minutes of my day would change my life physically. And now Le-Vel has given me time freedom to be with my kids anywhere their activities take us because I can take this opportunity anywhere, share with anyone and everyone, plus continue to grow as a business.” — Shelly Joice

“Today, 20 months later, I still give THRIVE all the credit for the amazing, full days I have! I chase my 2, 2 ½ and 4-year-old grandchildren with joy. I drive my 2017 Cadillac (earned through Le-Vel’s auto bonus program) thousands of miles by myself to visit family all across the country. I volunteer with excitement to give back to our communities in various ways. My days and hours are full of activity but, most of all, full of love and JOY! I didn’t see this kind of fulfillment in my future two years ago before THRIVE. Now I look ahead with anticipation, planning for a full, rewarding, giving life of joy!” — Trish Foxall

“Every once in a while, I come across photos from two to three years ago, and I am astounded as to the difference. I look back and think of how down I was feeling, overworked and exhausted. Each morning, I wake up feeling happy, motivated, and with more energy than I can ever recall having had before. All summer long, I’ve hiked on my days off and had a blast! I look better, I feel better, and this gave me the motivation to take my life in the direction I am meant to follow. Watch me go!” — Krista Gebel

Krista Gebel

“What began with a simple question (‘What is that on your arm?’) has now turned my health, happiness, energy, and wellness to a whole new level. THRIVE entered my life and within one day of three simple steps, I knew I had found my answer to fully enjoying my exciting life again! Within three days, gone was the life of planning naps to accomplish my dreams, gone was my crankiness of handling the next task, and BOOM — what was found was my full, authentic self! This brings me more joy than any words can even describe!” — Moe Garcia

Moe Garcia

“I recently deployed overseas for six months and was glad that I had THRIVE with me. It helped me focus and perform my job well through the stress of being away from family. At 40 years old, I just received my highest score ever on my yearly Physical Training test for the Air Force Reserves — even better than I did 10 years ago!” — Ben Hancey
