LOS ANGELES, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ViSalus, the company behind the #1 90-day weight-loss and fitness platform in North America, announced today that Aaron Fortner has achieved Diamond Ambassador just weeks after last month's announcement of ViSalus' new Promoter leadership rank. As Diamond Ambassador, Fortner will earn up to $350,000 of the Ambassador Million Dollar Bonus, and join the coveted upper echelon of Ambassador leadership in the field.

In early August, thousands of Body by Vi Challenge Promoters worldwide learned about the Diamond rank and its esteemed leadership opportunities. Fortner has already taken advantage of those opportunities and is inspiring his team to do the same. "The first thing I did after hearing about the new Diamond rank was to go public with my goals and make sure every single team member was 100% committed to running hard for International Icon—a special opportunity that gives Promoters a chance to be featured in The Challenge magazine," said Fortner. "They knew they needed to push to reach their goals by the end of the month—and to do it with absolute conviction."

One of the key reasons why Fortner was able to hit the Diamond rank so quickly was his strategy and his focus. "To get to the next Promoter rank, you need to completely trust in the promotions that ViSalus offers and then do exactly what the plan says. I made a personal commitment to achieve Diamond Ambassador, and then I learned how to get there as fast as possible. Sometimes the best leader is the best follower—one who consistently follows the play. The system is already in place; you just need to follow it."

Although Fortner, who started as a ViSalus promoter in June of 2010, has already become a Diamond Ambassador, he is working hard to ensure that his team members will follow his lead. "The most exciting part of all this is knowing there are so many people I know who are very close to hitting the Diamond rank in the next few weeks. My story proves that it's not only a possibility but also a reality."
