e oaE Y E O N A R B O N N ELIVINGMY BEST LIFEI began my Arbonne journey in July, 2005, just 10 short monthsago. I never imagined when I said, “Yes,” to the business that foreverchanged my life and the lives of so many others. My husband,Jeff, had gone to hear ENVP Cecilia Stoll speak in February andwas absolutely convinced from that moment that Arbonne was theanswer to our prayers. I, on the other hand, needed a little moreconvincing. Two weeks before my husband’s revelation, I had givenbirth to our fourth child and was not sure that I could even pronounce“Arbonne,” much less be an Independent Consultant. I didknow, however, that I wanted to relieve some of the pressure off ofmy husband as the sole financial provider for our family. We hadmortgaged our entire future on a profession that he loved, but heworked many hours, trading his time for money when what he trulydesired was to spend more time with me and our four children.After Julianne was born in February, I was given a NutriMinC ® RE 9anti-aging skin care travel set and Arbonne Baby Care products asgifts. After using the products, I knew there was nothing else I everwanted in our home, or on our skin. Arbonne crossed my path severalmore times after that, but I could not imagine adding one morething to my life. After all, three of our four children were still in diapers.Watching Jeff labor tirelessly to provide for our family gaveme cause for concern. So, I entertained different ways of supplementingour income, but none seemed viable. In July 2005, my dearfriend and eventual sponsor, Susanna Eilers, told us that she hadsigned on to do Arbonne under her cousin, ENVP Buffy Ruthardt.Jeff could not believe that I was still not ready to jump in and I couldnot believe that he thought I had any time to spare. Trusting him andknowing the pressure he was under supporting a family of six, Idecided to accompany Susanna to a local Nation meeting. Wetalked Arbonne all the way there and on the way home. Over thenext two days, I decided to start my Arbonne business with the intentionof getting our products at a discount and having the potentialto earn a little extra money.judy uleryIndependent Consultant, Regional Vice PresidentJ.
