I used to be a Recreation Planner in local government and I loved my job, but my husband and I were a one-income family and not getting ahead financially. That's when I found Arbonne.
In 2007 I was introduced to Arbonne by my dear friend Executive Regional Vice President Andrea Bouzrara. She sent me an email from America: “Arbonne is coming to Australia, and the opportunity to get involved in this company with these amazing products is not to be missed.” My first reaction was “No, that’s not for me - I'm not interested in network marketing, I don't know the first thing about selling, I'm too busy and what would people think of me?" However, I was curious and I invited Andrea to send me a sample pack of Arbonne’s anti-aging skin care. Needless to say when I got that good stuff on my skin I was blown away!
After I did some research, I realised I was just uneducated on what network marketing actually is - a very smart business model. I realised that Arbonne could make a difference in my family's life. So I took a leap of faith, jumped in with both feet and worked hard for my dreams and goals. I promoted to Regional Vice President, and earned the beautiful white Mercedes Benz, after five years of working my Arbonne business right alongside my fulltime job.
What I know for sure is that the rewards of having an Arbonne business are immeasurable and the effort required to achieve whatever level of success one desires is definitely worth it. I said “yes” to Arbonne and my life has changed in so many ways. I resigned from my day job of 15 years as a Recreation Planner to be the CEO of my Arbonne business. I am able to offer my family more choices and more experiences, such as travel, theatre and quality time together. I have also started my own charity which gifts new books to disadvantaged children so that they may know the joy of reading.
My dream of making a remarkable difference in people’s lives is a reality and I am more excited than ever about what the future holds as I continue to grow personally and professionally. I have learned that your business can only grow as much as you grow and my personal goal is to grow as a leader every day and foster independent leaders in my team.
