Ocean Avenue News: Ocean Avenue Continues Explosive Growth

Franco Cavaleri Great Life

Ocean Avenue recently released some initial numbers on their first month in business. The company did a little over $1 million dollars in product sales, and has almost 2000 active Ambassadors. Recent information suggests that they did over $2 million in December and now have over 7000 active associates. These are rock star numbers in the MLM industry!

However 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 talk to management all the way through to new Ambassadors in the field. Ocean Avenue is so focused on bringing back Hope and Opportunity to Middle America families and they have truly figured out a way to do it.

Furthermore, they are not limiting this crusade to just Ambassadors, they are also focusing on customer retention right out of the gate. They are truly a customer and associate first company. Their three and free program focuses 100% on customers, and customers are allowed to get BOTH free product and accumulate points towards their own free vacation. More on the Free Vacations program will be coming soon in another post, but let’s just say if you like the sun and fun, this is THE program.

I fell in love with this company and the passion of the founders and their families. Paige Anderson the founder of Shine Brite Kids and the president of Shine Brite Kids, Chris John are involved and they are going to lead a kids leadership program for every family who is involved with Ocean Avenue. 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, or checking out our website,, or 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 off on passing judgement until you have spent a little time on our sites looking, learning, and listening. 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, and this is at the core of the Ocean Avenue mission,

Ocean Avenue may never be the right company for some of you. But what I want you to realize is there is a direct selling company that is right for you, and I hope that we could be a small part of your journey in finding it!

Are Energy Aggregation Deals Your Best Rate Bet in IL?



A new approach for many third-party energy suppliers in deregulated energy markets is to cut deals with large cities and municipalities setting one rate for electricity for their entire customer base. While competition always benefits consumers, it is important to note that you will almost never get the best rate entering into one of these aggregation deals. If it’s simple and the local government is involved, it won’t be the best deal available!

Recently, the City of Chicago entered into an agreement with Integrys Energy to offer a fixed rate of 5.42 cents per kWh to residential and small commercial accounts within the Chicago city limits. This is just the latest example of aggregation that is easy for the consumer, but isn’t the best rate, or best for our environment.

Smart consumers who are willing to do a little researwork will almost always do better buying and choosing for themselves then choosing one of these ones size fits all group deals. We understand that many of you may have questions, so I have summarized the information publicly provided by the City of Chicago on its website.

The following are a few bullet points for you about how the aggregation deal impacts your choice in electricity:

1.This is an opt-out aggregation: This aggregation only applies to residential and small commercial (less than 15,000 kWh per year) customers who are ComEd delivery and supply customers.

2.Viridian’s current rate is more attractive than the rate offered to customers through the aggregation deal: Viridian’s current 6-month fixed residential rate of 5.29 cents per kWh is extremely competitive with the aggregation’s fixed rate of 5.42 cents per kWh. Moreover, Viridian is offering a 12-month fixed commercial rate of 5.42. This means that Illinois customers can select a rate that is the same as or better than the City of Chicago aggregation rate while still receiving the sustainable benefits of Everyday Green energy from Viridian.

3.Those who opt out can still switch to Viridian: For ComEd delivery and supply customers, the opt-out deadline is Wednesday, Jan. 9, in order to not be switched to Integrys. Please note, however, that customers eligible to opt out will be allowed to switch to Viridian at a later date and will not incur cancellation fees from Integrys.

Com-Ed ENCOURAGES customers to seek BEST electricity rates in Ilinois (great news for Viridian)

Hawaii Dinner

ComEd finally endorses derugulated energy choice in Ilinois, great news for suppliers like Viridian!

On October 23, Illinois utility ComEd released a statement to show its support for its customers’ choice to switch energy providers, which residents have been benefiting from since the state implemented energy deregulation laws.

“ComEd supports and encourages customers to shop for electricity among the dozens of certified alternative suppliers. Customers should explore any opportunities to save money on their bills, whether that’s through shopping or energy efficiency,” said Anne Pramaggiore, president and CEO of the utility. “ComEd will still deliver electricity safely and reliably to every home and business in Northern Illinois, regardless of the customer’s choice of supplier.”

ComEd reiterated that it has no qualms with people switching electricity rates simply because it derives its revenue from delivering the electricity to homes and businesses throughout Illinois. The company added that customers will see no change in the quality of their power if they decide to switch.

“We have always supported electricity competition as a way to provide customers with greater choice and money-saving opportunities,” said Pramaggiore. “Competition keeps rates low.”

Illinois has benefited from a deregulated market since 1997, however it was not until 2006 that retail energy providers could easily market to residential customers.

Does the recent Yahoo email change have you seeing red?


Does Yahoo have you ready to explode after their recent email changes?? No, it’s not only you, and no their isn’t something wrong with your computer. Yahoo made substantial changes not just to the look of their email, but too important features and functionality, and they did without any notice or beta period.

Yahoo changed their format and layout today, with no notice to users. I am starting a campaign to ask Yahoo to revert back to the old format that worked so well. Please take a minute to like this page, and then share it with anyone and everyone you can! Social Media WORKS, if we can turn this VIRAL!

Yahoo Email should NOT be able to treat customers this way, please go to the link below and “like” this Facebook Page. I will then turn the page over to Yahoo and demand CHANGE! Thanks so much for your support!

Viridian brings electricity rates down in IL this holiday season

Green Energy II

Residents in Frankfort, Illinois, will spend less to keep their Christmas lights illuminated this holiday season, now that customers are eligible to switch away from state utility ComEd, The Chicago Tribune reports.

According to the news source, as of November 5, residents of the village have the option to switch energy providers if they find an electricity rate that beats their current price. Village Manager Jerry Ducay stated that customers could see savings as high as 30 percent on their monthly bill. A typical customer who uses about 1,000 kilowatt hours every month would theoretically see a drop from $84 to $48.33.

“The main thing you’ll see is a lower rate, and isn’t that good news?” said Mayor Jim Holland.

The media outlet stated that the bulk of Frankfort’s 6,900 electric customers are expected to make the switch to a retail energy provider, however they can remain with ComEd if they wish.

Illinois has had energy deregulation laws in place for more than a decade, however residents are just now beginning to switch suppliers thanks to new online resources from the Illinois Commerce Commission that allow customers to compare electricity rates side by side.
