"Re-invent, invigorate, and passionately recreate who I am."
That's what Arbonne is doing for me. Have you ever met someone who's energy is contagious? The entire company is filled with men and women with passion and energy.
"Career Woman gone Mom" is the name of a book I started when I entered motherhood for the first time. It was a true identity crisis. It was difficult to shift from corporate to full time motherhood. I had no idea what would come and... I fell in love with my family. Upon realizing that I did not want to return to corporate life but remain a stay at home mom, I also found that I missed having my own career. We needed another income source.
I did not marry until I was over 40 and had my only child late. Before marriage I had started a successful training and coaching company and then stepped into our family business to help my husband while I stayed home raising our son. The work was not fulfilling. I wanted more. I also knew that returning to coaching and training would require me to travel that meant leaving my family.
My neighbor insisted I attend Healthy Happy Hour at a friends home. With reluctance I attended. I have many food allergies, so I was cautious. Upon being introduced to the protein shakes, I immediately read the ingredient labels. Then began reading all the product labels for the clean eating program and tasting each product. I reviewed the details of the 30 Days to Healthy Living program. It followed everything that my doctor of 24 years prior had advised me about eating healthy and training clean. Because of many food allergies, I was still skeptical and thought, "I"ll give it a try". Being the discount queen, I signed up as a consultant to get the best price and bought the 30 Days To Healthy Living Set and the RE9 skin care line.
My first Clean Eating Challenge went well, but I did not give up sweets. My coach, Tracy Schuetz told me, "if you're going to do this, do it right and go all the way". So I started the Clean Eating Challenge again and gave up sweets. I knew I could not make it alone so I invited 3 girlfriends to do it with me. They became my accountability team. My first month I lost very little weight but I lost 1 1/2 inches in my waist, and 1 inch in my hips! As I made eating clean a priority, I realized that this was about getting healthy. I dropped from size 10 to size 6 in two short months. As I began to share my experience, more and more friends wanted results like mine.
The rest is history. I have had great results from the 30 Days to Healthy Living program. I have more energy, my memory is spot on, and I am more alert. When I get compliments from strangers on my skin, I tell them about the RE9 skincare line. All I do is share my enthusiasm, my love of the products and most of all my results.
It's a blast reuniting with friends, helping them get results, and growing a business that I believe in. I never thought I would be in network marketing. It's hard not to share when I feel so passionately and believe in the products and philosophy of Arbonne. Join me in building your business with Arbonne.
