This past week I missed Arbonne’s one and only annual training conference GTC – essentially an amazing party with all of your best friends that reminds you why you do what you do. Luckily, this year’s GTC was also available virtually so I had an opportunity to tune into the conference from afar.
My biggest take away – be authentic, which means knowing your why!
Since starting Arbonne I got a new job, got engaged, moved, and started planning a wedding. My why took the back seat, which in turn meant that Arbonne was right there with it. I felt like I couldn’t share it because it wasn’t my full-time endeavor. I felt as if people would see right through me. If it’s that great Erin, why aren’t you doing it full-time or more? And they’re right – I should be doing it more. Listening to GTC reminded me of one big thing, I started my business for a reason.
I started Arbonne because I was looking for a lifeline. I wasn’t happy where I was at in life, my career, nor my physical, mental or emotional health. I wanted to feel like what I did mattered and be a part of something bigger; a community or group that took me as I was and continued to push me to be my best self. I wanted to build a career that focused on empowering others. I said “Yes!” the same day I was asked to join a team because someone saw potential in me I couldn’t see myself.
I was given a platform to uplift others, but more importantly, uplift myself.
Arbonne’s nutrition and skincare have both changed my life. Between getting my skin complexion back, reducing dark spots and sun damage, to losing 12 lbs of stubborn, mid-section weight that have always made me dread bikini season, I’ve learned to not only love myself but the love the process.
The process includes the constant self-doubt that you aren’t good enough, the everyday struggle worrying you might fail, the fear you’ll just come up short each time, and the setbacks that happen along the way.
BUT – the process also includes a new chance with every new day, hope, fire and fight, and constant reminders that setbacks build comebacks.
The second I learned to love every second, I found myself in love with my life by design, not by default.
In this moment, I knew I wanted to share this gift with the world.
I’m not talking about being an Arbonne Consultant that sells protein powder and moisturizer. I’m talking about an Arbonne District Manager, soon to be Area Manager, that empowers men and women to know they are so much more than what they might think of themselves.
To some that’s taking the first step towards getting healthy. To others it’s an opportunity to financially support themselves. Arbonne is something special. Whether you want to build your own business or join a team for healthy living, you get out exactly what you put in.
It’s one of the few communities I’ve been a part of that you never, ever have to blow out someone else’s candle to shine brighter.
We lift each other up every step of the way.
So, if you are looking for a place to call home, a community to flourish, and a team to climb beside, you might just need the #dreamteam.
Imagine how your life could change with a simple YES.
If you are the least bit interested in the opportunity let’s chat! It’s changed my life and it could yours.
