Health and wellness is a 4 trillion dollar industry.
No wonder new companies are popping up like mushrooms every now and then. All of which touts about having "the best" health product ever.
Tava Lifestyle is one of the newest MLM companies out there.
Led by a team of veteran network marketers, people are saying good things about Tava Lifestyle products and of its "generous" compensation plan.
This is probably why you're here.
But first things first. While it's true that the health and wellness market is huge, it's also very saturated, stacked, and dominated by giant companies.
As a network marketer, joining a new MLM company like Tava Lifestyle could provide an edge in the long run.
You can position yourself properly at the top of the company compensation plan and every new members will probably be under your team.
However, there's also a risk that the company won't survive the harsh industry within its first years - your time, money, and effort will be all for nothing.
There's also the question of whether its products would be a hit to consumers and its business opportunity can go on par with the industry leaders.
So in this review, you'll find every little bit of information to decide if you should join Tava Lifestyle or look for better alternatives.
Quick Tava Lifestyle Business Summary
Tava Lifestyle seems to have a good line of products that could provide you the "advertised" health benefits. However, as with almost every other MLM health product, there is no guarantee whether they will work for you.
You'll have to try the products yourself to see if they will work as "advertised" and if they are worthy to promote unto other people.
Making money with Tava Lifestyle will rely on your ability to build a massive network of associates. You'll have to possess excellent network marketing skills to do so and you must know how to find an endless source of prospects. Because even if you can make profits from selling the products, the bigger income will still come from recruitment.
Worse, the company uses a Binary compensation plan which tough to make money from.
This is because even if you make a lot of sales on one leg, there's no guarantee that you'll make good money because the company will only pay you based on your weaker leg sales.
Cost to Join
You may join the company with only $49 but if you are planning to turn this into a real income source, you'll have to spend more money than that.
First, you'll have to purchase any of the Enrollment Packs that cost $100 - $2,000 and you'll also have to purchase at least $140 worth of products per month to become eligible for commissions.
Overall rating : 2 / 5
Trying the products and making sure it works is the first thing you have to consider before you join Tava Lifestyle.
How will you be able to convince other people to buy them when you don't even use them yourself.
If you don't know how the products work, there's no way to promote them effectively to other people.
And even if you've had a good experience with Tava Lifestyle products, you must be certain that selling and recruiting people is how you want to make money. All successful network marketers have successfully built a large network of distributors under them and it won't be any different with Tava Lifestyle.
You'll have to be able to sell your products and recruit new associates outside of your warm market (family, friends and co-workers) or else you'll eventually ran out of leads.
A proven strategy successful marketers use is to take advantage of the Internet to find constant prospects,
On the other hand, if selling and recruitment is not how you want to make money, then I'll suggest that you check out this program. It is the program that allowed me to quit my full-time job and still earn a full-time income from home.
What is Tava Lifestyle?
Founded by Kenny Lloyd, Tava Lifestyle is a Multi-level Marketing (MLM) company that sells health and wellness products .
It also offers an opportunity for entrepreneurs to make money by selling Tava Lifestyle products and by recruiting a sales team to do the same.
Tava is the Hebrew word for "Noah's Ark."
As the name suggests, the company is supposed to be a vehicle, an "Ark," designed to rescue people from their "physical, personal, and financial storms."
If I didn't know any better, I'd mistaken this company as a church ministry.
Anyways, there isn't any information on its website when the company was officially launched.
But the domain tavalifestyle.com, however, has been registered in May of 2019. So it's safe to assume that it began official operation in the same year.
Joining a New MLM Company, Yay or Nay?
As I've briefly mentioned earlier, joining a new MLM company like Tava Lifestyle is a double-edged sword.
On the plus side, when you join right now, you are positioning yourself on top of the company compensation plan.
I'm pretty sure this is a common sales pitch among the company and its distributors.
- "Be among the pioneering members"
- "Join now while the company is on the ground floor"
- "Secure your position now"
But why does this matter exactly?
Well, in Multi-level Marketing, the person at the top will earn commissions from the people under his/her organization.
One's commissions could come from multiple levels, depending on what kind of MLM compensation plan the company uses.
It is why recruiting and building a vast network of distributors makes sense in all MLM companies.
It's the same reason why the only people who earn a lot of money in an MLM company (most of the time) are the early joiners and the company founders/owners.
Another perk of joining a new MLM company is it's much easier to recruit people because of the hype factor.
There are also no negative reviews and complaints against it (yet).
On the other hand, there is no guarantee that the new MLM company you join can make it in this harsh industry.
I've seen plenty of companies that collapsed only after 1-3 years!
And while I'm not saying the same thing could happen to Tava Lifestyle, who can guarantee that it won't?
Then, all your efforts and investments will be for naught. Not to mention the damage it can do to your reputation for recruiting people into a company that went bankrupt.
For me, there are 3 crucial things I always consider whenever an MLM company caught my interest, new or old.
These are the Founder/Owner, Products, and Compensation Plan.
Veteran Network Marketer Leads Tava Lifestyle But…
On the Tava Lifestyle website, Kenny E. Lloyd was named the founder and visionary CEO.
Kenny was a top-earning distributor of Total Life Changes, another MLM company in the health and wellness industry, and as of 2018… He's still actively promoting TLC.
Why Kenny left TLC and created his own company is unclear.
Any cynical man would assume that maybe, just maybe, he isn't making lots of money anymore?
Of course, there's also the possibility that he indeed wants to "help individuals try to earn additional money per month." Only he knows.
But I would like to make an assumption.
Most distributors left TLC after an FTC probe on Herbalife which have a direct impact on the company and caused them to change their compensation structure as well.
Maybe the new pay plan doesn't pay that well?
Nevertheless, it's good to know that a successful network marketer leads Tava Lifestyle.
If I would join an MLM company... I'd want someone like Kenny Lloyd, who has actual experience in the industry, to be at the helm.
Three more persons were featured on the company website, and I find them equally interesting.
Kevin Harris, Tava Lifestyle COO
Kevin is said to have been involved in the direct selling industry since 2004.
I look around, and one company he was involved in was Surge365, a controversial travel MLM company.
TLDW (Too Lazy, Didn't Watch?)
Don't worry; I got you.
In the video, Kevin talks about how he plans to take a "good ride" in Surge365 as he was almost sure that it's going to be the next big thing.
Here's Kevin now, promoting yet another "next big thing" company.
Of course, there's nothing wrong with someone switching companies, and I'm not saying Tava Lifestyle would suffer the same fate to Surge365.
But history does tend to repeat itself.
Mark Sterling, Tava Lifestyle Vice President of Sales
His company bio says that Mark has a long experience in the direct sales industry.
He also "has assisted multiple team members in his network to achieve six-figure incomes."
However, there isn't a way to verify these claims.
I can't even find any information about him being affiliated with any Direct Selling or MLM companies where he excelled in building a large team.
Mark was featured in an MLM Nation podcast, though, if that counts.
Outside direct selling, Mark is said to be an IT consultant that has provided services for various clients, including for Fortune 500 companies.
LaChelle Pierre, Tava Lifestyle Director of Operations
Her company bio didn't reveal much about her previous profession except that she is new to MLM.
Her company bio says she had a "major impact" on the sales and marketing industry, professional speaking industry, and MOST RECENTLY, the network marketing industry!
Well, that's… Something.
But if there is one good thing that these people have in common, I'd say they have excellent marketing skills.
The kind of people that could sell ice to an Eskimo (Again, nothing wrong with that).
But besides hopes and dreams...
What Exactly does Tava Lifestyle Sells?
As I was writing this review, there are only 3 Tava Lifestyle products.
For me, this is a concern because if you only have three products to offer, it's easy to lose your customers.
Even if the health and wellness market is enormous, Tava Lifestyle products aren't exactly something most people haven't seen before.
And if your potential customer doesn't like any of the products you have, a sale is never going to happen.
How will you make money then?
I'm not promoting any MLM companies, but at least with Market America or Modicare, they have so many different products that basically, everyone is a potential customer.
Nevertheless, these are the 3 products of Tava Lifestyle.
Kai Detox Tea (30 Sachets - $69.95)
A healthy tea that helps you flush out toxins and impurities in your body.
It is also said to help you lose weight, increase your energy, boost your immune system, and lower blood cholesterol.
I'm not saying these claims aren't real, but is there something this tea can't do?
Well, for a $70 tea, it better be all-in-one, right?
Vale30 (30ml - $64.95)
An anti-oxidant liquid extract formulated for people with busy lifestyles or digestive concerns.
Vale30 also contains Vitamin A, B1, B12, and B6. It's said to contain your daily dose of glucosamine to preserve joint health and 95% of your daily recommended intake of Vitamin D3.
Now, this all sounds amazing, but I just want to point out that each person has different nutritional needs - glucosamine and Vitamin D3 included.
Vida + (30 Capsules - $64.95)
A unique combination of amino acids, probiotics, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals in capsule form to keep your energy running.
It also contains minerals that are supposed to help increase muscle growth, regulate your metabolism, and maintain focus.
Do Tava Lifestyle Products Work? Are they Safe to Use?
As a new company, there aren't many reviews and feed backs (good or bad) about these products yet.
One thing I'm confident though is that just like most products from other health and wellness MLM companies…
There will be people who'll have a good experience, and there will be those who will feel like they've wasted their money.
Furthermore, at the bottom of each product label is a disclaimer that says,
"These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any diseases."
At the end of the day, Tava Lifestyle products are just food supplements.
You'll have to try them yourself to see if they work for you and if they are worth promoting to others.
And if you have any allergens or any medical issues, you should seek professional advice first before using any of these products.
To be honest, I see nothing special about the Tava Lifestyle products.
A detox tea, a liquid extract, and healthy pills, all of those I've seen before on different MLM companies, advertised with equally impressive claims and made with equally potent ingredients.
They are mighty expensive, though!
But if you think that the premium price tags of Tava Lifestyle products are due to their superior quality, then you might be taken for a ride.
They are expensive compared to other products that contain similar ingredients because the company uses the profits to support its compensation plan.
Have you tried any of the products above?
Feel free to share your experience in the comments section below.
And if you had a good experience with Tava Lifestyle products and you want to get discounts or start promoting it to others for profits, you can join the company to enjoy both.
Joining Tava Lifestyle (Only $49?)
While it's true that you can join the company with just $49, you will need to spend more if you want to take full advantage of the business.
Paying the $49/year Sign Up fee will make you a Customer. You'll become eligible for product discounts, and you can earn profits by selling them.
However, to qualify for the rest of the company's compensation plan, you must become an Associate by purchasing any of these Enrollment Product Packages.
- Affiliate Pack - $100 (40V),
- Personal Pack - $300 (100V)
- Fast Track Pack - $500 (150V)
- Builder Pack - $1,200 (300V)
- Founder’s Pack - $2,000 (600V)
Note: V refers to the Commissionable Volume, used to calculate your commissions.
The Founder's Pack is said to be available only for a limited time and will only be offered to "early joiners."
The main difference between these packs is the value of the products included in them.
If you are someone who is planning to join Tava for business, it only makes sense that you will purchase one of the 5 Enrollment Packages so you will have products to consume yourself.
As implied by LaChelle Pierre's company bio...
Be a product of your product and practice what you preach.
Cheesy taglines aside, is Tava Lifestyle's business opportunity worth paying hundreds and even thousands of dollars?
Tava Lifestyle Compensation Plan
The company claims that there are 5 ways for you to earn money with Tava Lifestyle.
However, they all boil down into you selling products and recruiting people.
And much like most MLM companies, the more significant income will come from recruitment.
But let's not get ahead of ourselves.
First, let's take a look at this "lucrative and generous" compensation plan Tava Lifestyle is talking about.
1. Retail Profits
When you join as a Tava Lifestyle Associate (distributor), you will get a $10 discount on all the products.
Hence, selling them personally to customers at retail prices will give you a $10 profit.
However, if you refer someone to your replicated Tava Lifestyle website (provided by the company to Associates) and they purchase a product, you will earn a $25 one each sale.
Now, do you know why the products are so expensive?
It's because part of the profits are used to pay the Associates.
2. Quick Start Bonus
From here onward, your income will directly be influenced by the number of people you recruit into joining the company.
In Quick Start Bonus, you'll get paid $30 up to $800 depending on the Product Package your recruit purchase.
But to earn this commission, you must first become an Active Associate by a personal purchase of products worth 40V each month.
Each of the 3 products has 20V, so any two products will get your qualified.
That's about $140 monthly product maintenance on your part.
3. Binary Pay
Tava Lifestyle uses a Binary pay structure, which is my least favorite MLM compensation plan.
In Binary, you will be given two sales legs directly under you, the left and the right. All your recruits and the recruits of your recruits will be placed on either leg.
In a perfect scenario, you will have both the left and right leg filled with recruits and with plenty of sales, but that rarely happens in the real world.
What will likely happen is that you will have one leg with more sales (Builder Team) and the other with lesser sales (Pay Leg).
Unfortunately, the company will only pay you based on the sales of the Pay Leg (the leg with least sales volume).
Now, I've seen too many people on companies using a Binary compensation plan that have millions of commissionable points. Yet, they didn't make a decent income because it is only on one leg.
Because in Binary, it won't matter if you have a million sales volume on one leg while the other leg only made a thousand, or a hundred.
You will only get paid based on the leg with lesser sales.
To qualify for Binary commissions, you must first have 40V in sales, and you must have at least two recruits, one on each leg, that has 40V as well.
In Tava Lifestyle, you can earn 10-25% of the total sales of your weaker leg, depending on your rank.
There are 12 ranks in the company, and they are based on the product sales volume you make each pay cycle.
And how will you achieve higher ranks?
Yes, by recruiting as many people as you can to generate more product sales.
4. Binary Check Match Pay
On top of the Binary commissions, Executive Directors and above can also earn a 10-50% check match bonus on all your personal recruits.
Whatever your recruit earns that month, you're entitled to receive a percentage of that as well, based on your current rank.
5. Profit Sharing Pools
Every week, Tava sets aside 1% of the total product sales. Associates with ranks Triple Diamond and above can earn a share of this pool.
Bonus - Get Three and Get it FREE
Whenever you can refer 3 people to Tava LIfestyle website, and they purchase at least 1 product each, you will earn up to $120 credit.
You can can use that credit to order your favorite company product.
After learning these things, do you think it's possible to make a decent income with Tava Lifestyle just by selling the products alone?
Because for me, it appears that the only way to make real money with this company is if you can turn yourself into a recruiting machine.
Heck, you even need to convince 3 people to buy the company's expensive products so you can get them for free!
Nevertheless, this is not a new thing in MLM companies, and to be honest, Tava Lifestyle's compensation plan is a typical one.
It's not really "lucrative" or "generous" by any means.
And if you want to verify any of the information above, here's a video by Mark Sterling himself.
Did you watch the video this time? No?
Okay, let me summarize the video for you in four words.
"Recruitment is the Key"
If there is one thing I'm 100% certain about any MLM company, it's this:
While you can make money selling the company products, you'll have no choice but to build a vast network of distributors to make a decent income.
If you take another look at Tava Lifestyle's compensation plan, the real way to make money is to recruit more Associates and grow your team.
Hint: The Quick Start Bonus
If you can recruit two people that join with the Builder Pack ($1,200), you'll earn $1.000!
Recruiting more Associates who, in turn, will recruit many other Associates will help you build a fortune with Tava Lifestyle.
Is Tava Lifestyle a Pyramid Scheme?
While it's true that your bigger income in Tava Lifestyle will come from recruitment, I believe it's not a pyramid scheme.
As what the Federal Trade Commission made clear,
"MLM's have a real product to sell. More importantly, MLM's actually sell their product to members of the general public, without requiring these consumers to pay anything extra or to join the MLM system. MLM's may pay commissions to a long string of distributors, but these commissions are paid for real retail sales, not for new recruits." (Source)
Tava Lifestyle will not pay you directly for each person you recruit, but based on the products and the product package that they purchase.
The company also sells its products to the general public without requiring them to join the company.
It shows that Tava Lifestyle abides by the legal guidelines of the FTC.
Nevertheless, as with any MLM companies, if you cannot build a huge sales team with this company, you won't make a lot of money, and you won't survive for long.
Now, these are my opinions, and if you want to voice out yours, leave a comment below.
Conclusion: Should You Join Tava Lifestyle?
I'm not going to be that person that tells you what to do with your time and money because I know you're smart enough to do that.
But for me, this business opportunity best suits individuals who have a pleasant experience with the company's products and those who are comfortable in the sales environment.
Because if the Tava Lifestyle products haven't done wonders in your life, how can you expect to convince other people to use them too?
And much like the lead personalities of this company, you must possess excellent marketing and network marketing skills to make it work.
Because aside from selling… Prospecting, persuading, recruiting, and managing a large team of Associates is what this business is all about.
And with a new company like Tava Lifestyle, you'll have to find a superb strategy that will make you stand above the rest of other MLM companies in the industry.
Finally, over 95% of people fail to make a decent income in the entire MLM industry.
The odds are stacked against you, and it will be no different with Tava Lifestyle.
But these things aside, I'm confident that Tava Lifestyle is a legitimate MLM company. It's also possible that you can make money with this business.
And if that is the path you want to take, then I recommend this strategy used by the best network marketers and top-earning Tava Lifestyle Associates.
If Selling and Recruiting people is not your cup of tea...
If Tava Lifestyle turned out to be not the business opportunity you're looking for, then I highly recommend that you check out this program.
It is a program that taught me how to earn a full-time passive income from home, even as a complete beginner.
Thank you for taking the time to read this Tava Lifestyle review.
