Hi I am Moana Robinson, Independent Consultant and Executive Regional Vice President with Arbonne. I am married with two grown daughters and five grandchildren.
I started my Arbonne business in July 2007 when it launched in Australia. I have always loved helping people and have an interest beauty, health and wellness. As well as working in our family business I trained as a beauty therapist and absolutely loved doing this. I started a salon with a friend which I did enjoy but it became necessary to go back to go back to work in the family business which was still growing. We discovered Arbonne while on a trip to America and as soon as it came to Australia I signed up as I realised I could start my Arbonne business while still working at the family business. I had a feeling in my gut that this was a business for me.
I am in control of my life and the choices that I make. I care about people and want to make a difference to their lives. Through my Arbonne business I can do this by setting an example and sharing beautiful products and a wonderful opportunity that can give people flexibility, choice and residual income.
When I first started in this business I knew that it was what I had been looking for. Arbonne is the vehicle. It allows me to be creative, help people, develop personally, use fantastic products, watch people blossom and grow and look beautiful as they do. It gives me the opportunity to help people to help themselves and increase their own wealth. Everyone has the same opportunity in Arbonne and I am just giving them that opportunity. I love supporting others and working with them to achieve a common goal.
I have my own business. I am proud of what I do and what I have achieved and am still achieving. The Arbonne products are beautiful and the possibilities are limitless.
Anyone can have an Arbonne business and fit it in to their life, they can fit it into their family life, their existing business life, alongside their present occupation and if they wish to replace their part time or full time income. Some people love their jobs – others hate every day they spend at work and I think that is sad. I am elated when people can quit the jobs they had and replace their income or better it with Arbonne.
If I had been offered Arbonne 20+ years ago things would have been very different for me. When our girls were little we had very little money. We struggled along especially when we first came to Australia. I had to go to work when we lived in Sydney to make ends meet – My husband would start really early and finish at 3 and come home and mind the girls, I would work in Paramatta at a lawyers office 4-11pm and then get home and go to playgroup etc and do all the kiddie things the next day.
Arbonne is not a "get rich quick" scheme and yes you DO need to put the hours in to reap the rewards. Because when I started Arbonne I knew what I wanted to do and no-one was going to stop me I just went ahead and told everyone what I was doing. I booked two presentations a week and back then no-one had heard of Arbonne. I was so excited with the results of the products and that this was something anyone had the opportunity to do. Yes, I was scared sometimes and yes, I didnt have all the knowledge and the benefits of an upline right here in Australia but I ran with passion and excitement. If I didnt know something I just found it out. If I couldnt answer someone's question I told them I would get back to them. I didnt deny anyone the opportunity to have the Arbonne products or the Arbonne business just because I "thought" it may not be for them.
The Arbonne Opportunity can be perfect for a lot of people for many different reasons. The Arbonne products are the best I have ever used and the company is constantly evolving just as the consultants constantly evolve, There is a lot of personal development which comes along with a business such as this and that is one of my favourite parts of the business.
