a few weeks ago, a friend of mine posted on Facebook about wanting to employ someone part time through her Arbonne business. I'd heard of Arbonne before, but didn't really know much about the company or the products. for the past few months, I've been considering working part time to bring in some extra income. our bills are paid, but we really don't have a lot leftover at the end of the month to put into savings, and that has bothered me. so I emailed Angela to inquire about the business, and not only did she welcome me with open arms, but she mailed me a substantial package full of samples and product information.
as I read through the material, I was pleasantly surprised with how much I agreed with the company policies. along with being carbon neutral and totally green (and not in a trendy way), Arbonne makes an incredible commitment to their customers when it comes to providing the safest products possible. every product offered through Arbonne is the best combination of scientific research and botanic ingredients. I found myself thinking "wow, that's amazing!" about 983 times while reading through the paperwork.
obviously, I began using the product samples that very evening, and I am not even exaggerating that by the next evening, I could see and feel the difference between the Arbonne RE9 skincare line and my drugstore purchased stuff. my skin felt firmer and seemed to breathe easier within 24 hours. the fact that every single product is made without nasty chemicals or fillers made my decision that much easier. in fact, Arbonne not only follows FDA standards with their ingredients (did you know that the FDA only prohibits 13 ingredients from being added to products that GO INTO OUR BODIES?!), but they follow European guidelines as well (which ban over 200 ingredients). what's even more awesome is that there is a product for everyone - products that provide targeted results, from acne and wrinkles to weight loss and ridding your body of toxins.
I think the best thing about this opportunity is that I get to work at my own pace, all while I stay home with Ronin. as much as I love the products, it really is about the convenience for me. I can take someone to Starbucks and teach them about the products and the company, and it will be considered "work." Arbonne isn't just about selling products, it's about people - it's about improving the lives of others, whether it be through the products, or the business opportunity that is offered.
so with all that said, I'm very excited to announce that I've decided to join the Arbonne team as an Independent Consultant. I feel privileged to associate myself with such a reputable company and cannot wait to learn as much as I possibly can. I never thought I'd have my own piece of a network marketing company, but here I am. I attended a local Arbonne Retreat over the weekend and left feeling more inspired than I have been in YEARS. the group of women that surround me within this business are absolutely incredible, and I can't wait to work (if I can even call it that...) with and learn from them all.
