Arbonne is the most exciting and rewarding business I have ever come
across. After owning my own chain of various retail, wholesale and
manufacturing businesses in first the fashion industry and then body, bath
and home stores for 30 years, I found the challenges of ongoing staff
problems, the escalating rents on my stores in large shopping malls and
the waiting for customers to come in was wearing me out. I felt I was
losing the whole enjoyment of life.

March 2007 I sold my business and at the age of 47 decided to have
a break. My incredible husband, Laurie was about to do a strategic
planning project for an American company. This involved traveling to
England, Europe and America. The job was to take up to three months,
and as I no longer owned my business I went with him.                                                                            angie mulham

During our travels, I discovered the wonderful qualities of Arbonne’s                                            Angie Mulham Region; Brisbane, Queensland

After returning to Australia in November 2007 I decided that at the
age of 48 I was really too young to retire. Being the sort of person that
