If someone were to ask you: “ What does your life look like in five years from today?” what would your answer be? Not tomorrow, next week or next month, but five years from today.
I’m a dreamer and a hopeless romantic who dreams of having a family and taking road trips across Canada. I dream of becoming a professional rock climber. But all of that comes with a cost, or as we like to say ‘adulting’ . As much as ' adulting' happens to be a part of anybody’s life (young professional or retired), you’re never too old or too young to dream big.
I was first introduced to Arbonne by my friend and sponsor, Brandy. At first, I was hesitant. Curious, but scared. I had been introduced to network marketing companies in the past, but really knew nothing about the industry. She assured me that network marketing is a brilliant way to do business, helped me understand why and how lucrative it can be. Still hesitant, I said no. But something in my heart and gut said not to be entirely closed off to this opportunity. After the first party I went to, I actually did start to look at labels of products I was buying, so something clearly changed in me. Over the next few months following the initial party where I got to try out some great products, I attended a ‘Discover Arbonne’ business presentation, hosted by Brandy, Fallon and Meg. At this point, I had been asking questions about the company so I was, unknowingly baby stepping in, but at that time I was still saying no. Brandy invited me to another business presentation, hosted by one of the top leaders in the company, Tabatha Debruyn and it was when I heard the inspiring stories that I finally said yes. In fact, I felt like a bride who said yes to the dress. I said ‘YES’ to a life with no ceiling and only dreams .
If you asked me in June 2015 where I saw myself in five years , I’d say happily where I am now. And it's true, I love my simple everyday life. But there is more to life than meets the eye. So where do I see myself now in five years, 10 years and forever after saying yes to a lifetime of opportunity? Following my dreams complete with road trips, my own mission to Namibia, South Africa and competing in World Climbing competitions with the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) around the globe. Life is an adventure and mine is just beginning. And yours can too, if you believe in a world where endless opportunities exist.
