Over the last eight months, I have heard from Network Marketing Pros, around the globe asking me about Ocean Avenue, and what it has in common with Max International and Evolv… Well one of the answers, is Ken Dunn! Now don’t get me wrong there are many other similarities… Great founders, solid products, and profitable compensation plans at all levels, and most of all stellar networkers in the field.
However, lately there seems to be some form of under-current from people inside and outside of these companies who want to propagate half truths, and bold face lies against the companies above. Now, I am not going to go into all the details, but below you can see for yourself about Ocean Avenue, from the reporting we have done over the last eight months… And in the near future I will be covering some of the new leaders who have joined Evolv of late!
Now, don’t get me wrong ANY company growing as fast as Ocean Avenue is growing, will run into growing pains. More experience team reps will be hired to answer the phones, c-level execs, will change positions, new talent will be brought in, and the best news is the field leaders will continue to attract more team members. Ocean Avenue is the fastest growing international start-up network marketing company currently and we look forward to continuing to follow their story and the stories of the Ambassadors who call it home.
So if you read a blog post by Kevin Johnson titled “Ken Dunn & Ocean Avenue Scam”, you can rest assured he left out a boatload of information. And if you do not do your own due diligence, and only rely on what Kevin Johnson wrote, you may end up in a whirlpool of misinformation.
Travis and Summer Flahery have been friends for years. When they told me back in September they were moving to Ocean Avenue, I was very excited. Travis is known for his passion for start-up companies, and with the financial foundation at OA and the product line being launched, that this would be a good fit. What I did not realize is how fast, Travis and Summer Flahery would build. The company officially launched October 2012. And by February 2013, the Legacy team have grown to over 200K in TQV (Total Qualified Volume) the amount needed to hit Diamond!

Ocean Avenue founders Ken Dunn and Fred Ninow held a leadership call this week thanking the Ambassadors for their hard work in the placement month, prior to the November 1st launch. The company did a little over $1 million dollars in product sales, and has almost broken the 2K in active Ambassadors.
But to me what is the most exciting is how they arrived at those numbers. Although the products are solid, and the compensation plan rewards MLM Pros and the average networker, it is the cause or crusade behind the company that seems to be the common denominator when I interview the Ambassadors in the field.
Attention: (The following interview is about an hour long.)
Ocean Avenue is so focused on bring back Hope and Opportunity to Middle America families and have truly figured out a way to do it. And they are not limiting this crusade to just Ambassadors, they are also focusing on customer retention right out of the gate.
Their three and free program focuses 100% on customers, and even the customers are allowed to get free product and accumulate points towards their own free vacation. But more on the Free Vacations coming soon.
Right now I want to focus on one of the reasons I fell in love with this company and the passion of the founders and their families. Although all the details are not worked out, I feel this is so powerful that it has to be shared. This interview with Paige Anderson the founder of Shine Brite Kids and the president of Shine Brite Kids, Chris John goes to show just a little bit about an upcoming strategic partnership. Shine Brite Kids is the strategic partner working with Ocean Avenue to create the Kids Zone Program.
Now I know some of you reading this editorial and watching the video will not have the same faith as me, or even hold the same principles or values, and I want you to realize I take that to heart.
What, I want you to do is hold passing judgement until you get a real deep understanding as to the passion. Although we all do not hold the same values and principles, one thing we all hold dear is our desire to change our lives and our families lives for the better.
Ocean Avenue may never be the right company for some of you. But what I want you to realize is there is a company that is right for you. So go find it!

South Jordan, UT: November 1, 2012: Christian and Stephanie Hockley of Odessa, Florida were announced as Top Ten Income Earners at Ocean Avenue today! Christian has a 5 year background in networking and has had great success working with and building teams in the past.
“Coming out of the gates with a 40,000 BV month in a pre launch with no product yet is phenomenal!” says top income earner Rob Moffitt. “He is just an amazing leader with a knack for getting to know and leading people on this journey.”
Christian and Stephanie were recruited by several companies in recent months but were determined to select a company that fit their core values as a family. Ocean Avenue has labeled themselves as a Family First company and that was just one of the deciding factors for Christian. “In a world that can seem anti family at times, we needed to find a place that could fit our focus on the family and allow us the best possible platform to help thousands of people, I am just thrilled to be a part of Ocean Avenue and the team that is being assembled. I am so grateful to learn from the best in Rob and Tiffanie Moffitt and I look forward to working with and growing a dynamic team over the next 5-10 years!” says Christian
November 1, 2012 has officially begun the Pre-Launch stage at Ocean Avenue and hundreds of new Ambassadors are making their way to Ocean Avenue. With high quality products, an outstanding compensation plan and the Ocean Avenue Vacation Club, Christian and Stephanie feel confident that they have found their home!
Over the last four weeks I have seen MLM Pros from around the globe joining Ocean Avenue, and each MLM leader seems to have just a slightly different reason for joining, but the overall vision is the same… They feel they have found a company that is being launched and built on the traditions of some of the most respected legacy companies in history. Listen as Rick & Marty Croissant share their story and why they have made Ocean Avenue their new home.
A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Leroy & Colette Coursey as they shared a little about why they love Network Marketing and the reason they decided to make Ocean Avenue their new home. Below is a little more about Leroy & Colette so you can get to know they a little better.
Thoughts From Leroy
In order to get what you’ve never had, you must be willing to do what you’ve never done.
Seeing is believing! Why hype something when you have substance!
For things to change, you have to change. For things to be better, you have to be better. For things to be blessed, you must be a blessing and you must despise where you are….before you will ever be where you want to be.
Colette = meaning Victorious in Battle. Best described by a card with my name on it, from the Greek-French roots and ancestry of French-Black Dutch. It read; as having the intelligence of heaven; she likes to be her own woman; she is level headed, religious and kind; her friends all know her kind heart; an individual who is very devoted; admired and treasured for her beauty; believes strongly in a positive attitude & is assertive by nature. When I read this, I was amazed and realized obviously someone has figured me out.
Living life to its fullest! Beauty is only so much on the outside, however beauty actually starts on the inside and that is supported heavily around NUTRITION. With everything going on around us these days and how our food is made, processed and manufactured, we have some challenges. The proper nutrients and nutrition that we need is being destroyed little by little and time is also a factor in our busy day to day lives. If you don’t take time now for your Health and Nutrition and get or stay healthy, then you should plan on making time for ILLNESS and being sick later. That’s the bottom line as hard as that may sound. Your lifestyle also feeds your well being and we all want convenience and things on the go! I’m a huge promoter of health and wellness, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory within the body. When you are a walking product, meaning, if you look good you feel good and if you feel good you look good. People today want both. As an Entrepreneur when we find a product that works in both areas of our lives as well as allows to have time freedom, financial freedom, surround by time well spent with our family, friends and business partners….you can’t call this a job. We call it …we simply call it fun and if it’s not fun, then don’t do it.
I wear many hats and can walk and talk and chew gum at the same time too. Today it’s about a diversified portfolio and no limits! Be all that you can be and use God’s given talents to share with everyone you know whta you know or may learn about that helps people and pay it forward. Don’t allow anyone to place limits upon your boundaries. Reach one to teach one and pass it on. Leave the world a better place than when you found it. If people aren’t willing to invest in their own futures, don’t think that wanting it bad enough for them will get them to buy into yours. Seek those looking for you! Keep your faith and eyes on the Lord always, you do reap what you sow. So plant wisely! Love life but most of all Learn to LIVE IT!
In my earliest of years, all my friends knew me as “Coco”. Actually most of them NEVER ever knew me as Colette. How funny is that! Now today I’m also known by the love and delight of my life, my granddaughter calls me Nana Coco. I’ll claim either one today! Life is what you make it so make it great or help another person’s become great! Blessing others blesses me! It’s very rewarding either way you look at it.
Always give thanks, it comes back 10 fold. Carpe diem!
