So you're thinking about getting a little healthier - Congratulations! As you know, making the decision is the first step! Those of us that have done this program love knowing that we are passing on life changing principles. Going down a jean size is awesome and that will definitely happen when you do this program; but the health, the ability to climb stairs again, the confidence that feeling good gives people, the energy to play with our kids again - this is what makes us never want to stop educating people on what we do. What we have is not revolutionary. Jack Lalanne was teaching clean eating back in the 60's. What's revolutionary is that we have products and people to support you through the journey to ensure success. We do this in community so that we're not alone. And then we serve others by passing it on which keeps us accountable for the long term and allows us to help more and more and more people like you.
What it is:
A 30-day whole foods clean eating program.
A system to equip people with the tools & knowledge to implement life-long health.
A rest for the liver and kidneys to maximize function.
An elimination program to help to uncover food sensitivities.
A weight loss jumpstart.
What it's not:
A deprivation diet
A liquid diet
EYE ON ARBONNE
REGIONAL VICE PRESIDENT
You were meant for more!
Sharon Decker of Little Rock, Arkansas, was seeking a way to double her income without doubling the time she spent away from her precious children. She made Arbonne work for her by staying active and getting connected.
Arbonne found me just in the nick of time. My world was turned upside down when my husband unexpectedly passed away from a rare, undetectable medical condition. One day he was there helping me plan for the future; the next day he was gone. In the blink of an eye, I became a 31-year-old widow with two small children.
My late husband had earned twice as much as I did, so to say we were financially unprepared for an event of this magnitude would be an understatement. After taking some time off to grieve, care for my children and get organized, I knew I would not only have to go back to work to support my family, but possibly get a second job as well. I needed to provide a dual-income household for my children … on my own.
I was working in public relations for a hospital, which was a great job, but it didn’t pay all the bills. I debated going back to school, and also began to search for nighttime work. The thought of being away from my children, then ages 4 and 6 — especially during such a vulnerable and difficult period — was unfathomable. I needed another option. That’s when my best friend introduced me to Arbonne.
“Consistency and belief
are the keys to success.”
I had always thought of network marketing as something that didn’t work — that gets people into financial trouble.
But I trusted my friend who brought the opportunity to me, and because the other options looked so bleak, I signed up.
Once I decided to “do” Arbonne, I committed to it fully. Over time, I got to know the company better, and I liked what I saw. My growing belief was clearly reflected in my performance. I promoted to District Manager in three months. It took me another two months to get to Area. I earned trip after trip, and was regularly honored with awards of excellence. However, I got stuck at Area Manager for what seemed like a very long time.
That changed in 2010 at the Arbonne National Training Celebration. During one of the awards ceremonies, former President Rita Davenport pulled RVP Rebecca West from the crowd to tell her story. She had done it, so I knew I could, too.
My team and I worked hard, got motivated, and stayed connected. By the end of the month, we’d reached first-step qualification. One of my challenges was the belief that in order to be successful, you need a huge team. You don’t. You just have to be willing to get into activity. If your team sees you committing yourself fully, they will follow in your footsteps. I see many people quit just before their big break. What they don’t realize is they’re not giving up on Arbonne; they’re giving up on themselves. The key is sticking with it and staying connected.
“Arbonne has turned my
upside-down life, right side up.”
Even before my husband passed away, I dreamed of being able to stay home with my children. I didn’t want to have to beg and plead for time off; I just wanted to take it. In that respect, Arbonne has turned my upside-down life, right side up.
Thank you to my sponsor and best friend, ERVP Gena Fryar. You believed in me and partnered with me to go to the top. You are an Arbonne rock star and I can’t wait to promote you to NVP! To my crossline AM Rhonda Mayo: Thank you for your support and for being like a mother to me. Thank you to NVP Carrie MacDonald, ERVP Sara Langum and Sarah Wilson for sharing the gift of Arbonne and coaching me during this journey.
Thank you to my incredible team of AMs, Stephanie Purifoy, Cara Chapman and Crystal Young. You have blessed my life and I am grateful to share this journey with you. To my DMs, Jesse Byrd, Scarlett Jenkins, Amber Antal, Amy Malik, Sonya George, Susie Blanton, Misty Haile, Krystal Kaminar, Khaliah Coleman, Kacee Van Horn, Bobbie Zako and Mary Hutchinson: You are amazing NVPs-to-be! Thank you for serving others and blessing many lives.
Thank you to my family, who has supported me along the way with purchases and Presentations. To my children, Brianna and Bryson: I love you both deeply and treasure you with all my heart. You are my biggest Why. I longed to be a stay-at-home mom for you. Thank you for understanding and helping me become a success.
Thank you to my fiancé, Jesse Byrd, for babysitting, cooking meals, doing laundry, and being Mr. Mom so I could achieve my dreams. You are the sweetest and kindest man on the planet. You rock my world and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.
