Prepare for Impact!!
I’m passionate about educating people to prepare for impact – be it health or redundancy or anything else that might come your way………
I tell this story because I’m the evidence that everyone needs a Plan
B. Little did I know what was coming my way. Arbonne has indeed
been my saviour.
I’d had a 35 year career in advertising sales — loving my job, climbing
the corporate ladder from telesales on a local newspaper to managing
director of a county lifestyle magazine. Juggling work and family with
my two beautiful daughters, Harriet, 25, and Francesca, 22, life has
always been hectic, and its true to say I have spent my life running at
a 100 mph, never stopping to “smell the flowers.”
With passing years, the constant pressure of targets, internal politics,
working harder than ever, and earning less each year as the economic
climate took a dip, I was becoming disillusioned and started to question
my life as I hurtled towards 50 – telling myself on a regular basis
that I couldn’t possibly continue at this pace and more importantly not
wanting to! But separated from my husband, I had a mortgage and
family to support so I had no choice other than to keep going.
It was at t this time, I was introduced to Arbonne by the now Executive National
Vice President, Yvonne Dixon. She was warm, funny, intelligent and
professional, and has become one of my closest friends. I listened to
the Arbonne opportunity and decided to jump straight in – what did
I have to lose? I knew I needed to make changes in my life and this
could be the answer.
One of the things that attracted me to Arbonne is that it’s a 39 year
old stable company, profitable in a growing health & wellness industry,
with a green commitment. It’s internet-driven and centred on direct
selling and network marketing.
I embraced all that Arbonne had to offer. Still working my full-time job
but fitting Arbonne into the nooks and crannies. I love the fact that we
have a wide range of consumable products that we are all using on a
daily basis, and the business is about recommending and educating
people on how to purchase pure, safe and beneficial products — what
could be better? I get to build my business with my best friends and
help others realise their dreams.
On my journey I have embraced the personal development, reading,
listening, being inspired, and growing to become the best version of
myself. Time and financial freedom is what I craved, and I found that
having an Arbonne business can give you that opportunity if you are
prepared to commit to the income producing activity. I embraced the
coaching and mentoring from my upline, plugged into the trainings that
helped inspire me to realise my dreams, and more importantly, teach
and inspire others to do the same.
What I love about Arbonne is to be successful, you have to teach and
train others to be successful. In November 2014, my wonderful team
and I reached Region. What a fantastic day that was, and we were now
the evidence that Arbonne really does work.
Onwards and upwards into 2015 to lead from the front to help and
develop more leaders, only to discover that fate was going to throw me
a real curve ball. In March, I was diagnosed with lymphoma — throat
cancer. This was totally out of the blue and a real shock, just proving
you never know what’s around the corner.
I embarked on the gruelling rounds of chemotherapy, enduring the usual
bad reactions, and losing my hair. My grit and determination pushed
me through the worst, although I’m not sure what I would have done
without Arbonne. Mentally Arbonne has been my saviour. So much more
than a business, it’s the people, friendships and support that make this
company incredible and make me proud to be a part of it. In Arbonne,
you are in business for yourself but not by yourself.
One of the things I always tell people is to have a Plan B even when
you don’t need one — you truly never know what’s around the corner.
Live life to the fullest. “Sip it whilst it’s fizzing” is my mantra. I believe you
can have whatever you want if you have a clear vision and are prepared
to learn new skills and grow. You have to see yourself winning before
you win. I’m so excited for my future and the future of my team and the
friends I have and am yet to meet. Bring on the rest of my life!
