The THRIVE Experience gave Hollie Choate her “happy” back. And now, she helps others –including her mom – see new possibilities
In October of 2014, Hollie Choate wasn’t feeling like herself. A hair salon owner who dabbled in a number of side businesses, Choate had suddenly lost her drive and didn’t want to go to work.
“I used to be super passionate and outgoing, but all of that was gone,” remembers Choate, who was caring for her newborn and her older son. “I was going through all the mommy things that happen to you after you have a baby.”
A friend had introduced her to the THRIVE Experience, but Choate wasn’t having it. “I literally made fun of the company because they had ‘vitamin stickers’,” she says.
But Choate’s friend explained how the DFT worked as part of the THRIVE Experience and kept messaging her about it. Finally, “after the fifth or sixth message, my husband said, ‘Hey, why don’t we give this a shot?’” Choate says.
She asked her Promoter friend for a trial pack for herself and her husband, Chad. Choate was a Day 1 THRIVER. “At 6:30 a.m., I was bopping around the kitchen doing dishes after taking my three steps,” she says.
On Day 2, she messaged her friend, asking, “Why do I feel so great?” In addition to feeling happier and more energetic, she noticed her general aches and discomforts had calmed.
On the third day, Choate and her family went to the fair and her older son noticed that his parents were in better moods.
“At that point, my husband said, ‘We need this product in our lives,’” Choate says.
That same day, she signed up to be a THRIVE Promoter and within 20 days, she hit her 12K VIP rank and kept going. Maintaining her full-time job while running her THRIVE business wasn’t easy. If she wasn’t at the hair salon, she was connecting with potential THRIVERS. She leveraged her network on social media to share her story with as many people as possible.
Her tenacity paid off. Within five months of joining Le-Vel, she’d achieved the 200K rank and was helping her husband ramp up his THRIVE business as well. After more hard work, she received her Le-Vel Millionaire Award in 2018.

Now, Choate’s days look a lot different. She still runs the hair salon, but works the hours she wants to make time to attend her sons’ activities. Chad runs her other side business, a hair extension company, while “being the backbone of the household” when she travels for Le-Vel events.
Choate has earned more than 20 Le-Vel Lifestyle Getaways, an experience that has whet her appetite for travel. “Being a hairstylist, I’d never have the money to take vacations the way we wanted to,” she says. “Now, Le-Vel spoils those of us who earn the Getaways three times a year!”
Although she’s received many accolades and perks as a THRIVE Promoter, Choate says the best part about her job is being able to help others succeed.
She even helped her mom get started as a THRIVE Promoter, and the two have been THRIVING together for seven years.
“I’m so proud that I was able to show my parents how they could build a business in their retirement,” she says. “My whole life, they were able to help me when I needed it. Now, I’m able to return the favor. That makes me so happy!”
