If you had told me four months ago I could be driving a Mercedes-
Benz, building a successful network marketing business, selling
extraordinary personal care products, while helping others run their
own businesses, and smiling because the wrinkles around my eyes
were nearly gone; I would have told you that you were crazy.
Although, miracles can happen. Now, I am living a life I never could
have imagined and this is just the beginning.
It was a miracle that landed me and my sponsor, ERVP Melissa
Cole, in the same Bible study. I learned about Arbonne when
Melissa mentioned her car presentation. When I asked about her
new car and she said it was a Mercedes-Benz, my antenna went up.
However, when I asked what type of company she worked for and
she said it was a Swiss-formulated skin care company, my antenna
went back down. That type of business was definitely not for me.
As the months passed, Melissa would mention Arbonne from time
to time. One day, I asked her if I could try a sample of a Figure 8
Just Go! Orange Fiber Shake. Cleverly, she agreed and gave me
a Figure 8 sample along with company information and a
NutriMin C ® RE 9® sample packet. Immediately, I was hooked.
My husband, Chuck, and I were looking for a home-based business
and Arbonne offered a unique situation of a ground-floor opportunity
with a 25-year-old company. After checking out the company
and learning that in network marketing, you can only be successful
by helping others be successful, I knew this business was for me!
I was so excited that I jumped in with both feet. I wanted what my
upline had, so I did what they told me to do. I read books and Eye

on Arbonne stories every day, listened to Learn and Burn CDs in
my car, did online training, participated in every meeting and conference
call and became a product of the product. My belief soared.
I knew I was with the right company, with the right products, the
right leadership, at the right time and knew I had the opportunity for
success beyond my wildest dreams. I followed the system, loaned
out the REsults sets and got results.
Because of Arbonne, I now have the ability to show others how to live
better by using Arbonne’s pure, safe, beneficial products. In addition,
I get to help people start and run their own business, with the potential
to dramatically change their lives. How incredible is that?

You will be successful when
you help others be successful.”
Words cannot adequately explain how blessed I feel to be a part of
Arbonne and how privileged to be associated with the people on
my team and in this company. Anyone can be a success at this business,
but no one can do it alone.

quickly were it not for my incredible family. To Chuck, Allie and

Chuck, if every Arbonne Consultant had a husband, partner, cheerleader
and supporter who believed in them and helped them, they
would all be RVPs. There is no way I could have done any of this
without you. You have gone above and beyond the call of duty, time
and time again. Thanks for being the CFO, COO, CIO and chief
counsel. I love you so much.
And finally, to God: Thank You for making a miracle happen.
