ACTNow ~ Houston, Texas

As most of my friends and family members know, I'm incredibly excited to be launching an Arbonne business! Talk about a solid company with phenomenal products (and I can't forget to mention they have THE BEST compensation plan in the industry). Really.


At first, I was skeptical. I thought to myself, "Here I have a Master's degree and now I'm considering selling skincare?" But--I did my research (lots of it) and loved what I found. I signed up to be a Consultant 3 weeks ago, have immersed myself in Arbonne's terrific online and phone call training, and this weekend, I attended the ACTNow Consultant training in Houston. Arbonne holds large regional trainings twice a year, and I couldn't pass up attending one so close by! And it BLEW MY MIND! The energy in this place was unbelievable. I can honestly say I haven't experienced something so exciting and motivational - ever. Arbonne is hitting the International market now and is going live in Australia July 2nd. Those of us at the ACTNow training were the first to hear where Arbonne is going next, which is the United Kingdom in October! Arbonne will continue launching in 2 new countries a year!

Since my upline will be in the area, she and I planned to have my launch party immediately. Tomorrow is the day and I could not be more thrilled. Below, on my right, is Alysia-my upline, and Colleen, one of her newly sponsored Consultants from Kansas. Alysia matched her teaching salary in 4 months and is on her way to Regional. She stays home with her 3 children. How awesome is that.

Oh, and what's with all the pictures of the Mercedes? Well, once a Consultant hits a certain management level (Regional), they not only have a very lucrative income, they earn a White Mercedes. Might I add that these are the Mercedes' that I saw just on the short walk to the parking garage elevator! I met women who made this level within a year--some in 6 months! Yes, some take 2 years, but still! C'Mon! What will you be doing in 2 years if you keep doing what you're doing? And that's not even the highest level in Arbonne. National is. And when I met women who retired their husbands at the age of 30, 32, I was amazed. Simply Amazed. What a wonderful, inspiring group of women because of the amount they give to others. There's only so much money one can make or white Mercedes they can have in their driveway, so when they turn around and give to others, that selfless act, is what draws me even more to Arbonne. If I can make a huge difference not only in my family's life, but also in other people's lives, I would be a fool to let this opportunity slip by. So, I'm jumping in with both feet and looking for a team to go with me.

Domi is 15!

We celebrated Domi's 15th at Dave 'N Buster's with a small family get together and a few of his girl friends from school. I just cannot get over how he will be old enough to get his driver's license next year!

Happy Birthday to my darling Domi!!
