I have been in the beauty industry for almost 24 years. Some may
say it was the career of a lifetime. I have had various business

                                                                            NEW RVP
ventures associated with this industry, including owning a cosmetol-
ogy school, a hair salon and a women’s clothing store. So, I pride
myself on having a good understanding of the inner workings of
my industry.

I was first introduced to Arbonne about seven years ago by my
husband, who is a financial investor. One of his clients passed on
some skin care product samples with a message that she wanted
me to try them and then find out what I thought about them. She
really wanted to speak to me about doing the business, but I was
absolutely not interested. After all, I loved my career and I was not
looking for another job opportunity.                                                                                     ta m m y gr aha m

Over the past three years, I have welcomed a couple of Arbonne                                            Tammy Graham Region; Marlow, OK
Consultants to be guest speakers and host Arbonne “Opportunity”
Presentations. Despite this, my mind was very closed off and I
refused to even allow them to approach the subject with me. Instead,
                                                                                18 years, so the least I could do to support her was to attend at least

talk to them at all about the business.
                                                                                meeting became the eye-opening experience I needed to get me

It was not until my friend, who is now ERVP Deanna McMurran,
approached me, that I felt an obligation to listen to what she had to
                                                                                Once I finally allowed myself to hear the business plan that was

           Keep an open mind, because

         you never know what opportunity
              might cross your path.

  of the fact that I did not give it a chance in the beginning. But, I

  can only hope that my situation serves as a lesson to others to keep
  an open mind because they can never know what opportunity of a
  lifetime may cross their path. It is truly one of those things that seem
  too good to be true, and opportunities like this only come around
  once, maybe twice, in your lifetime. Trust me, you do not want to be
  the one who let it slip through your fingers. I shudder to think that I
  almost let it get away!

  career, I have had the privilege of helping people look and feel their
  very best. It seems as though I have been being prepared all of my
  life for this special gift of Arbonne.

  To my husband, Don: Thank you so much for your support through-
  out this incredible journey. I could not have done it without you

  To my daughter, Samantha: Thank you for being there for me, and
  for being so understanding of all the times I had to be away building             Tammy, ENVP Cecilia Stoll and ERVP Deanna McMurran presenting
  my Arbonne business. You are my reason Why!                                       the Mercedes-Benz keys.

  To my staff: Thank you all for being the kind of staff anyone would
  be proud to work with. I knew if I had to be out of the office that
  things would continue on as if I was there.

  To my SuccessLine: I would like to say thank you to each one of you.
  You all have been such a great support and I could not have done it
  without you! I love you all and I cannot wait to return the support.
