A SMILE - Arbonne


A SMILE - Arbonne


e oa




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
