SAYS IT ALL
For the past few years, working two jobs had become protocol for
me. I was a full-time safety coordinator and part-time dental assistant.
I was exhausted and tired of spending minimal time with my
family, and always being the mom who was never able to take part
in school functions. I longed for a different life, a life where I could
help provide for my family without being gone six to seven days a
week. Little did I know that Arbonne would soon come knocking at
my door. Life is full of surprises.
Ever since my sister presented Arbonne to me in December of 2005,
there has been no looking back. Her enthusiasm and excitement for
her own Arbonne business and belief in the phenomenal products
definitely intrigued me. I admit I was very skeptical at first, since I
have always been one to believe that if it sounds too good to be
true, it probably is. I did extensive research on Arbonne and network
marketing, and this, combined with the fact that I had tried the
products and became instantly addicted, made me ready to jump in
with both feet. After all, the true secret of getting ahead is getting
started. I figured I might be disappointed if I failed, but I would be
doomed if I did not try.
Arbonne=REsults has been the answer for people like me who do
not have a lot of free time. This method, combined with the implementation
of Presentations, always having a positive attitude and
never losing momentum, have really been the keys to building a successful
business. I will never forget hearing a quote in a training session
that talked about the pace of the leader determining the pace of
the pack. I know this has been instrumental in my business because
my team followed my example and soon we were on our way.

After my third month in business, I was fast approaching qualification
for Region and was finally able to make a choice about my
future. No more 9-to-5 hours for me. This is also when the words
“dare to dream” and “believe before seeing” became very real for
me. After all, I believe you are never given a wish without also being
given the power to make it come true.
To my sister and sponsor, EAM Jodie Jamieson: Thank you for the
gift of Arbonne. I will be forever grateful to you and to our upline,
ERVP Marci Laye and ENVP Sonya Shields, for this new life. We
have truly shared so much together as sisters and I cannot wait to sit
