“Always hold your head up — always say, 'I can!' and, 'We can!'”
Dinah Williams of Gold Coast, Queensland was in need of a Plan B to help keep her family afloat ... but she also wanted more time to spend with them. The Arbonne opportunity provided both in what is now her perfect Plan A!
In just four months, I made it to Regional Vice President! By working hard with the system and building a splendid team, I went from driving a disastrous vehicle, to owning a gorgeous Mercedes-Benz. Let me tell you how!
I've been a professional vocalist for most of my life, winning many prestigious awards and performing internationally, which led to a fantastic career in television and onstage. I'm one of only a handful of Certified Speech Level Singing Voice Instructors in Australia, travelling to Los Angeles to learn and improve my teaching and singing skills under the tutelage of the world's finest voice instructors. In 2009, whilst in LA, I was awarded the International Studio of the Year Award. Why would I even think of starting another business?
Growing up, my family moved constantly, and I watched my parents struggle endlessly. Deep down, I made the decision to enjoy financial stability, stay in one place, and most importantly, help my dear parents live out their years in peace. Unfortunately, I financed my dad's last entrepreneurial misadventure, and we were all bankrupted in the process. Years of financial difficulty followed. Sadly, my dad passed away from stress-related illness.
At 25, I married my best friend and the love of my life, Kim. We adore our three beautiful, hilarious daughters. What a blessing! In time, I had gone as far as I could with my voice studio, and although I love my students, I was stuck in a “trade time for money” trap and the bills were insurmountable. My family was caught on a financial treadmill with no choice but to work longer hours. I was already teaching over 50 hours a week with a husband working full-time as well. My family was suffering. We needed a Plan B!
Thankfully, along came Arbonne. My good friend Rebecca Gwynne gave me a NutriMinC® RE9® sample and sponsored me into the business. The minute I tried it, I was in love and knew I could make a fantastic career out of Arbonne!
Just one week into my Arbonne journey, my gorgeous mum died from a stress-induced heart attack. It was unexpected, sudden and devastating. I never did get to spend quality time with my parents, nor could I help them in their old age. It was the greatest sadness, failure, helplessness and loss I have ever felt. I realised all too late that family is everything, and work should never take precedence over your loved ones.
With a huge Why and the decision to focus on helping others, I worked very hard and began earning a fantastic income. Although my little mum was gone and I was deeply devastated, I kept busy and soon made the most fantastic friends, who became my wonderful team. They kept my spirits buoyed. With a positive attitude, a sense of humour, the right activity and a simple-to-follow system (as well as a slow cooker!), in just four months, we qualified for RVP, and Arbonne became my Plan A!
I still teach singing because I love helping others, but with my family's support, I now make community service the primary focus of my “me” time. Arbonne allows me to concentrate on the things that really matter, so that I can make a difference in other's lives. You can make a living ... and make a life! Thank you to the Arbonne Head Office — brilliant, supportive and helpful! Thank you, Rebecca Gwynne, for introducing me to Arbonne and supporting me on my journey.

To my precious daughters, Phoebe, Hannah and Elise: You sparkle and shine, selflessly supporting me because you know what I am doing is for our family. You make your daddy and I so very proud each and every day!
Kim Williams, I love you so very much and adore and respect you entirely. You are my dearest friend. Thank you for your creative input and work on our team's presentations and resources, making a million school lunches, mastering hair braids, sorting the whites from the darks, giving me three beautiful daughters and providing us with a balanced, realistic, fun, peaceful, spiritual and incredibly happy family life!
Arbonne is one of the smartest decisions my family ever made!
