My name is Atalie, like Natalie without the N, and I am a mom first, entrepreneur second. I had some pretty big career goals in my life and I never thought I would do something like this. My sister has been in Arbonne for 3 years now and for the first year I wouldn't even buy product from her. When I found out I was pregnant with my first, I had a little scare with a product I put on my skin that I was not supposed to use during pregnancy. Doctors tell you all the time what not to eat or drink or do, but they never tell you what not to put on your skin. What goes on your skin gets in your blood stream within 30 seconds, so it's surprising to me that there isn't more awareness of the products we are putting on our skin, especially while pregnant. After my scare, I went through all of the products I use daily and looked up the ingredients. I was totally disgusted and freaked out by what I found. I was pouring toxins that are known to cause cancer into my body and into my baby. So I did some research on beauty and cosmetic companies with the best products out there and came across Arbonne. Luckily, my sister was an Arbonne Consultant and I called her up to order everything from shampoo, deodorant, make up, lotion, everything! After another year, I had my first event for her where I had some friends who did the same thing as me - "Arbonnized" their home. Because of that, I earned some awesome host rewards! I got a full RE9 anti-aging set and a whole bunch of other products I was excited to try. My sister also asked me if I wanted to sign up as a Consultant because not only would I get a discount, but I would make money on this event and even be in qualification for District Manager. I was all in for the discount and the random paycheck, but I was STILL not interested in the business. Not my thing. I kept telling her "I am not a sales person" "I don't know anyone" "I'm a hermit and don't like getting out of my house much" etc.
Another year goes by and I find out I am pregnant with #2. I had quit my full time job when my son was born to become a marketing consultant so I could stay at home and be with him more, but we weren't able to move up in the world financially and we were basically breaking even. So we decided to sell our home that we had just recently renovated to be our dream home in order to actually achieve our dreams of going on vacation, saving for college, and having memories with our kids. Around this same time, Athena approached me one more time to see if I would be interested in just hearing more about the Arbonne opportunity, and I finally saw the value in this business. I would be able to work less, be with my kids more, and live the life I wanted! I jumped at the chance, became District Manager, earned a trip to see the #1 income earner and get a 1:1 training with her, and earned multiple bonuses all within the first 2 months of working my business. But the best part of this business has been the personal growth I have seen within myself. I lost myself in motherhood and didn't have a distinction between Atalie and mom. Now I have something for myself that gets me out of my comfort zone, something I can be proud of and see grow, and something that allows me to figure out who I want to be and how I want to get there.
