When I found out I was pregnant with our second child, many different things went running through my mind. How am I going to continue my marketing consulting business with two kids when I barely have enough time with just one? If I have to drop some clients to make time for baby #2, will we be OK financially? Will I ever sleep again? MMM, cake!
Ok, those last two are more related to baby than business, but most parents-to-be have similar issues with figuring out finances. Children are not cheap! In an ideal world, I would be able to only work a few hours a week so I can spend as much time with my little ones before they aren’t so little anymore, but still make enough money to live the life we want to live. It’s funny how things just work out when you need it to most. A few days after I had this paralyzing thought of having to choose between being with my kids or making enough money to keep our family going, I spoke with my sister who has been doing Arbonne for a few years now. She has been talking to me about the business for a while, but I wasn’t open to it. I wanted to use my degree in marketing, so creating a business for myself through Arbonne didn’t make sense. But when she told me that I could work 10 hours a week and make the money I need to make to be home and present with my kids, that got me excited.
My “Why”: A few years ago, when I was newly pregnant with my first, I modified my diet, cut back on caffeine, and made sure the products I was using weren’t harmful. Turns out, most of my skin care products and makeup were not safe for me or my baby! Everything I used had parabens, phthalates, or other toxic chemicals. To top it off most had animal bi-products, which aren’t really unsafe, but in the words of Jimmy Fallon, “Ew!”. I was disgusted with what I found and couldn’t believe I had been putting stuff on my body that has been directly linked to cancer, especially while I was growing a human. After looking for a company that offered the purest and safest products out there, I came across Arbonne and fell in love with the products. I have now been using the products for over 2 years and tell everyone I know about how amazing they are. When I was thinking about starting the business, it seemed like a no brainer to me seeing as how I already love and use the products. Why wouldn’t I want to share them with people I know and love? And knowing that it allows me to focus on my babies instead of stressing out over clients in my marketing business. I get to decide how much I want to work, I get to work with amazing women, like my sister, and I can still make enough money to live the life I want for my babies.
The Arbonne Difference: There are many different network marketing companies out there, so why choose Arbonne? My biggest reason is that I love the products, so it is not hard for me to tell people how amazing they are. But another big thing that sets Arbonne apart is that you don’t have to have your own inventory, Arbonne ships directly to the client! That means you don’t have to buy a ridiculous amount of their products to get started with this business like you do with many other companies out there. It cost $79 to become a consultant and start your business. That’s it. And if you do want to try some of the products (which are all amazing), you get 35% off.
Be Your Own Boss: Everything is on your terms with this opportunity – how much you work, where you work from, and how much you make each month. You can be more hands on and personal or you can do this business virtually, on the phone and through social media. Have too much stuff going on with the kids one week? Not a problem – you are in control of your work load! This is not a get-rich-quick plan – meaning if you decide you want to work 10 hours a week, you need to WORK during those 10 hours. And the people who put effort in see results!
