I have trained cutting horses for a living and now, I help manage
the family boarding stable, all while raising a few of our own cutting
horses. I never thought I would do anything other than this, but
little did I know what helping and supporting my wife would lead to.
It started a little over a year ago when my wife, ERVP Robin Haack,
was introduced to Arbonne’s NutriMinC ® RE 9® anti-aging skin care
line. Because Robin was seeing such great results, my daughter,
Hailey and I also started using Arbonne’s amazing products. Next,
Robin began sharing the products and doing Presentations. She
was having such success with her business that I wanted to be supportive
and help her out. Robin works full time at a textile company,
so she is very busy and does not have time to come out to the
horse stables. So, I started sharing the products and opportunity
with some of the people at the stables. If they were interested in
finding out more, I would set up a time for them to meet Robin.
After a few successful meetings, Robin said, “If you are going to
continue telling people about Arbonne we should sign you up.” So
we did just that.
Robin and I continued to work together as a team. Then, in October
of 2005, ENVP Susan Evans and NVP Laura Harry came out to
California to conduct an “Opportunity” meeting in our home. After
the meeting they stressed the importance of attending NTC 2006
St. Louis. They made it clear that it was a must for our business, not

our expectations and produced a life-changing effect on the both of
us. We came home with such an understanding of what this company,
Arbonne, is all about. The vision and integrity of this company
has to offer is there for the taking, for everyone who wants it. This
really is the chance of a lifetime.
Robin and I have been involved in other small business ventures in
our lives, but we have never experienced such self-fulfillment with a
business as we have with Arbonne. In Arbonne, you only achieve
success by helping others achieve success, and you develop lifelong

friendships along the way! Where else can you work with family
and friends, and on your own schedule? Where else can you
achieve great success, all while driving a white Mercedes-Benz? It
is all here with Arbonne.
I want to thank everyone on my team. If not for your belief, persistence
and commitment, none of this would be possible.
To my first EAM, Jona Howe: What a leader and teacher you are!
To AM Stacy Copp, AM Suzanne Huffman, DM Simone Carillo and
AM Diana King: What incredible teams you are building! Keep up
the good work.
To EDM Anthony Miller: Your unwavering commitment will get you
to the top. To EDM Danielle Triana: Your vision is unstoppable! To
EDM Renee Ritchie and to my first business builder, DM Erin
O’Steen: Thank you all for joining us on this journey.
To our newest Arbonne Independent Consultants, Eileen Johnson,
Debbie DePhillppi and Sherri Hogan: You are on the brink of something
so powerful, so keep building your businesses.
To the rest of my Region: I want to thank the rest of you every bit as
much as those I named above, but there are just too many of you to
name individually. Rest assured, your day will come, when we have
the privilege of honoring each and every one of you with the keys
to your Mercedes-Benzes!
To my wife, Robin and daughter, Hailey: Most of all, I want to thank
you two for being the foundation for this wonderful journey with
Arbonne. Without your love and support, it would not have been
possible to achieve this goal. Working as a team just makes us a
more loving family.
