OUT OF LIFE
What a huge difference Arbonne can make in your life in just eight
months! After such a short time, Arbonne is already allowing me to
achieve my biggest goal in life: To live my life the way I want to,
and not the way I have to. My biggest goal now is to help others
find this same freedom.
When I look back at my life before I joined Arbonne, I realize that
I was very comfortable with my situation. I am a small-town girl from
Saskatchewan who moved to the city to work. I had been a registered
nurse for two-and-a-half years and had just moved into a new
home. I kept very busy nursing and doing travel-nursing assignments
in the United States. Aside from work, I spent most of my time riding
my horse, team roping and going with Kevin down the rodeo trail.
I thought my life was full — right on track — and I was definitely not
looking for anything else to do.
Then out of nowhere it happened — I was introduced to Arbonne at
an “Opportunity” Presentation. I knew right then and there this was
a life-changing opportunity and I was hooked! I started my business
in April of 2006, and eight short months later here I am, a new RVP
driving a white Mercedes-Benz!
I have definitely had some personal obstacles to overcome in order
to do this. I had a major fear of speaking in front of people, had
never even heard of network marketing and knew nothing of running
my own business. I was also worried about what people would think
of me. But it did not take long to realize that the sooner I put these
things behind me and made a conscious effort to overcome them,
the more successful I would become. Trust me, if I can do this, I
know you can!

There is a place for everyone in Arbonne, especially you! I know
you have what it takes to be successful at this business, if you have
a strong enough reason Why. If you want something more out of life
— whether it be the potential for financial success, more spare time,
to live debt-free, to quit your job, or to retire early — Arbonne can
be the way to the life of your dreams. I encourage you to open the
gift Arbonne has to offer and begin your journey to a life you never
dreamed possible. I know you can do it and there are a lot of people
that believe in you!
There are many people responsible for my success. They have been
a constant support and influence in my life and I owe this promotion

Believe in yourself and share
this opportunity with everyone.
To my entire team: Thank you all for your hard work. It is because
of your efforts and dedication to this business that we have become
our very own Region! I feel so blessed to be a part of this with you
and am deeply proud of each one of you. I have learned so much
both personally and professionally from all of you. Not a single day
goes by when I am not motivated or inspired by one of you and I
cannot tell you how much I appreciate that. I want all of you to know
this promotion to Region is a reflection of your greatness.
To my sponsor, ERVP Lani LaSalle and my upline, ENVP Jaclyne
Kunz: I truly believe there is a reason for everything, and because
of that, I thank Arbonne every day for bringing you into my life. You
two are the most supportive upline I could have asked for. You have
taught me so much about this business, leadership, friendship and
life in general. I am overwhelmed by your kindness and I look up to
both of you. I also treasure the relationship we have made and could
not have done this without you. Thank you so much!
To my friends and family: What an amazing group of people you
are! You all have been so supportive of this personal journey.
Thanks for everything — thanks for being my best Clients, for
believing in me, for listening to me talk about Arbonne for hours on
end and for hosting the occasional Presentation! I consider you the
most important group of people in my life and I cherish all of you.
To my parents, Randy and Patti: I often ask myself how I ended up
with the two most amazing parents possible. Although I cannot
answer this, I am still extremely grateful to both of you. I feel so
fortunate for having you by my side through every part of my life.
Now, looking back, I am overwhelmed by your constant guidance
and support through my Arbonne journey. Your encouraging words
and inspiring talks are irreplaceable. I love you both so much I cannot
even begin to tell you how much you are appreciated.

To my other half, Kevin: I am a very lucky girl! You have been on
board with Arbonne since the day I came home from the Discover
Arbonne meeting. You are the biggest reason I decided to take this
leap. I can still hear your words: “Just go for it. What have you got
to lose?” From day one you have believed in me and in this
opportunity. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your support,
help, understanding and you just being you! I could not have done
this without you. I see big things for our future and cannot wait to
share the amazing life Arbonne is giving me with you. I love you
more than anything and am so blessed you are in my life.
