Founder and Chairman
Joe has made a career of developing innovative solutions and growing successful companies. In fact, he has built 3 separate billion-dollar plus organizations, including the top-10 direct selling company in the world. So, when his 6-year-old son asked him, “What’s for breakfast?” and he didn’t have a good answer, Joe instinctively went to work finding a solution. Not only did he discover the ideal breakfast option for his family, but he also recognized that he had a solution for helping others wake up to abetter life too. It was this realization and his desire to help more people experience the rewards of health and prosperity that pulled him out of retirement and into establishing a new enterprise. In 2018, he founded Viiva, hand picking a talented multi-national management team to build his most profitable company yet. And while Joe could have chosen many corporate titles, he chose Chairman of the Viiva Cares initiative because as the father of six children, he is also directing his problem-solving skills to helping children in need.Joe’s Viiva Morning begins early with international conference calls, followed by the sounds of the blender mixing up a series of Viiva chocolate shakes for his children and wife, Jessica. After the kids are off to school, Joe’s off to the office–typically driving one of his favorite vintage cars. On weekends, his morning may include a family basketball game with his 1-year-old daughter, Julie cheering on her dad and older siblings from the sidelines.

While Devin aims for tangible results, he also values the important, ‘intangibles,’ of trusted relationships and being surrounded by good, hard-working people. Most importantly, he cherishes his family relationships and can usually be found with his wife, cheering on their children in their sporting events or school activities.
Devin’s Viiva Morning starts with a flurry of activity that includes making his favorite, Viiva chocolate protein smoothie with his go-to Amazon Superfruit kiik. It’s the same quick and nutritious breakfast his family enjoys as they all rush off for school, carpools or meetings.

You could say Steinway Huang’s business education started at the age of five. It was then that Steinway made his first trip from his home in the United States to visit with his grandfather in Taiwan.

Steinway’s Viiva Morning starts the night before when he visualizes the day ahead. When he wakes up the next day, he says an internal prayer of gratitude and reminds himself of family and others who are depending on him. Then he gets in some exercise, grabs his Viiva protein shake and sets out to conquer the day–whether that’s at the office or with his family.
