Timing and Positioning is Everything.

With 2012 upon us, the Minerva Worldwide team is
excited to share some highlights of the progress we’re making toward the
much anticipated launch of MinervaPlace.com in the first quarter of 2012.
We are extremely excited to unveil MinervaPlace.com. It is uniquely positioned
to become a premier online destination — a go-to resource for information and
entertainment related to diet, health, beauty and lifestyle. Already, there is a
buzz on the internet and on the street about our innovative business model.
Positive press reports have appeared on Bloomberg and other noted financial
news services, and this buzz will only intensify with the strategic release of new
updates as we approach launch.

Thousands have joined Minerva in just the first few weeks of pre-enrollment.
The attraction? Cash Rewards. Industry innovation. The opportunity to become part of something truly
financially rewarding exciting and entertaining.
Innovative describes something new or different. First, Minerva stands apart from all other business models because its
growth relies on an affiliate membership rewarded through multiple profit centers. Plus, each Member is rewarded
commensurate to their contribution to Minerva’s growth. Second, the Minerva Compensation Plan rewards Members
with residual income based on the activity of their membership base. Best of all, Minerva Traffic Academy, free to all
Members, shows you proven, step-by-step sharing strategies that insure success.
We’re building the Amazon.com of diet, health and beauty. Not only a fun business, but we’re doing something
significant here. You’ll feel good knowing that a portion of every membership fee will be donated towards the fight
against childhood obesity. 17 percent of children and teens are obese! It’s scandalous. That’s why Minerva is dedicated
to helping to do something about it. Fighting childhood obesity is OUR CAUSE AND OUR MISSION.
“Our development phase over the past nine months has been quite a journey for all involved,” explains Minerva Chief
Executive Officer, John Gustin. “And it’s our incredibly talented team of dedicated and tireless professionals which has
made it possible. When you look at the team, their backgrounds and experience, you recognize that Minerva has set a
new industry standard. We are seeking the best and attracting the best people in every field of endeavor. We have
every reason to be proud.


Im looking forward to each of you joining me at Minerva Place Whether to cheer us on from the side lines or become a founding Member.
