MonaVie Founder – Dallin Larsen, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year

Posted by Orrin Woodward on June 20, 2009

Dallin Larsen, Founder of MonaVie, is a personal friend and a great leader!  I am so proud to see that others are recognizing his leadership abilities and servant attitude.  Dallin leads with character and heart which separates him from the typical executive in corporations.  Mr. Larsen sincerely believes in win-win principles and all his actions back up that belief.  The Bible says, “Give honor to whom honor is due.”  Dallin has earned the honor and respect of millions through his sacrificial service to others.  I am honored to be in the MonaVie business with Dallin and the whole MonaVie Team.  Here is the official announcement of the prestigious Ernst & Young Award. God Bless, Orrin Woodward
