Patrick Ashby

Patrick Ashby wasn't looking for business when he was introduced to ViSalus. He came out of retirement to mentor ambitious Vi Promoters, allowing them to bring health benefits to their communities while instilling the confidence that comes with self-employment. "Watching others take pride in their success makes our desire for a happier, healthier community possible," says Ashby whose life has been enriched by helping others attain their goals and dreams. 

C. Anthony Harris

C. Anthony Harris attributes his success and attaining the rank of 2-Star Ambassador in just 45 days* to teamwork and his commitment to continuously challenging others. Harris is known for his ability to inspire and mentor those who want to align their actions with their mission. Leading by example with passion and purpose, Harris makes it his mission to support, train and mentor individuals professionally and financially. 

Ron & Tony Jarrah

Brothers Ron and Tony gravitated to the leadership and saw the limitless value in ViSalus' emphasis on the human connection. Ron says, "You are able to approach 95% of the people rather than the 5%." Ron and Tony are well on their way to becoming top earners after less than six short months* by simply approaching people as people, not as salesmen

Chris & James Levins

ViSalus also welcomed another team of brothers in Chris & James Levins. Chris and James left a three-year run at an energy company and joined the health and fitness industry through ViSalus with Chris stating, "The sky is the limit." Attracted to ViSalus' strong leadership, James enthuses, "We're continually impressed with how Nick Sarnicola leads his team and just tells it like it is."

Tina Lewis

Reaching Ambassador rank in just 48 days*, Tina Lewis teaches her team how to turn messes into messages and trials into triumphs through her mantra, "NODIA – Nobody Does It Alone."  "You can't impact your own life until you impact someone else's," says Tina. Her "no excuses" approach keeps Tina rising in the ranks because she understands partnerships are what create the success around her, as well as solutions to obstacles.

Steve and Yvette Mitchell

Husband and wife team, Steve and Yvette Mitchell, who reached the rank of 1-Star Ambassador*, were drawn to the company for its effective and affordable products. The pair is now working to develop a global presence for the company with their strong European network. Recognized as a top income earner within the industry, Steve focuses his attention on bringing the domestic success of PROJECT 10 to an international market with the goal of combatting global obesity.

Charles Monk

Vi Presidential Director* Charles Monk relocated his entire family from the Philippines to Canada and has his worldly goals set on mobilizing the best Filipino team ever. His plan includes helping overweight kids lead a healthier lifestyle through ViSalus' PROJECT 10 Kids.

ViSalus Co-Founder Nick Sarnicola says, "Our Promoters are the best in the industry, each bringing individualized talents to a team of professionals building healthier communities, both domestically and internationally, through PROJECT 10 where it all begins with either losing 10 lbs. or building 10 lbs. of lean muscle."

*Results not typical. Achievement in rank and income depends upon many factors such as hard work, determination, financial resources and social contacts.
