  Wow, I have “written” my Eye on Arbonne story so many times in my
  head over the past year; to actually put pen to paper seems surreal!

  I never imagined myself creating a business, especially one selling health
  and wellness products and helping others do the same. My background
  is in nursing. I took care of cardiology patients for several years, but
  once my oldest son, Noah, was born, nursing took a backseat to my
 “mom” career. Over the next five years, my husband and I had two more
  wonderful boys, Luke and Logan, and my life was completely full — but
  I was not completely fulfilled. That is why in the fall of 2006 I started
  entertaining the idea of going back into nursing,

  It was around this time that Leslie Ponder, an acquaintance from church,
  called and asked me to host a Presentation for some friends that had                                                                        lisa frenzel

  and loved Arbonne’s NutriMinC® RE9® anti-aging products. I really liked
                                                                                                                                 Lisa Frenzel Region; Collierville, TN
  Leslie and wanted to help her out, so I said yes. It is crazy to think back
  now and see how that seemingly small decision made such a huge
  impact on my life!
                                                                                              not only cast a vision for me when I was unable to truly see for myself,
  NVP Lori Clark came with Leslie to do the Presentation, and I was struck                    but also for the confidence she showed in me. A few weeks later I

  16 months. It was not until Leslie called me a few days later and asked if I                building a business. I want to be an ENVP like the amazing women that

  could use as a tax shelter. I decided to stick my toe in and try it out.                    had to find a team.

  Lori Clark asked me shortly after, “Where will you be in five years if                       I have heard it said, “The best copycat wins in this business.” So I leaned

                 and follow your leader…

  growth is essential in order to be a servant leader, so I started reading
  recommended books in that area. I followed the Six for Success, Eight
  to be Great, Ten to Win plan. I jumped out of my comfort zone; I started
  telling people I would have my car earned by December 31st, 2007.

  mind it was quickly dismissed. Quitting because something gets hard is
  never the example I want to set for my children. Dreaming big, setting         can do this, anybody can! You have no idea what you did for me by
  the bar high and overcoming obstacles to reach goals are the qualities         joining me in this adventure. I am so blessed to have you on my team,
