How many times do we think we know all we need to know on a subject,
only to find out there is a world of possibilities we are not even aware
of? That was how I felt when ERVP Delahne Wright approached me
about Arbonne. I mistakenly thought I knew all I needed to know about
network marketing and even though I had never even heard of Arbonne,
it was not right for me. However, thanks to Delahne’s persistence, my
eyes were opened to a business I had never considered. As a Certified
Public Accountant with a master’s degree in taxation and many years
spent in corporate America, I thought I could not do something
completely different, or could I?

Small opportunities are often the beginnings of great enterprises. In July
2004, I surprised my family and friends and became a Consultant. I had
not even been to a Presentation and had only tried a few products, yet I
envisioned what life could look like for my family and me. I believed
Arbonne could provide the lifestyle we desired like no other job could.

I had planned; often we must be willing to leave the life we have planned
and live the life that is waiting for us.

When I started Arbonne, to get my business off to a good start, I
immediately scheduled six Presentations. I was excited about starting my                        Then, one day, I heard about a new business plan that several
