Why Did I Start an Arbonne Business?

I chose to start a business with Arbonne after testing the products and falling in love with them.  I have now used them for several years and had amazing results with them.  I wanted to recommend them to others and, if I am going to recommend them, I might as well sell them! Further, the business model just made sense.  We spend our lives sharing recommendations with others so why not get paid for those recommendations?  I get to share amazing products with people who will benefit from using them and also make an income at the same time.  Also, unlike other similar companies, Arbonne’s products are consumable meaning they will need to be replaced as they are used up leading to customers who order again and again. 

The compensation plan was another draw.  There are 4 levels you can achieve within Arbonne: District Manager, Area Manager, Regional Vice President, and National Vice President.  All are achievable.  And your entire business is based on your effort.  Therefore, you can go as far as you want regardless of who you signed up under.  You could sign up under a District Manager and easily surpass them to be a National Vice President whether they continue growing or not.  Everyone’s business is their own.  As a consultant, you earn 35% on your regular sales and 15% on your preferred client sales.  You also earn money on the sales of your business partners that join your team. This is money given to you by the company, so it doesn’t affect any of your partners.  Keep in mind, that you never have to sign up business partners.  You can have an income just selling the products like any other business.  However, once you see how great the business can be, you will want to share it with others.

Some Common Thoughts

There are some common thoughts that people have when contemplating a business like this.  They include things like not having enough time, not having money to invest, not knowing enough people, or not being a salesperson. I had these same thoughts but, you know what?  If I can do it, you can do it! 

I had these same thoughts and discovered something awesome!  You don’t need all that to get started and create a wonderful business.  I know people who have built there business just by working it during their lunch breaks.  It only costs $49.00 to start your business and then it is up to you whether or not you want to invest in some samples or products to share.  The nice things about Arbonne is there is a 45-day money-back guarantee so no customer needs to fear being out the money if they hate the product. 

As for being a salesperson, I am not one.  I don’t like being thought of as a pushy salesperson but, with this, you are literally just hearing what people have to say, recommending a product, and sharing what you love.  My upline (the person who signed me up) has always been adamant about saying that this business may be for you and it may not be and, either way, it is totally fine.  It isn’t for everyone.  I use that line whenever I share it because I want the other person to know that I am sharing it out of love not out of being pushy and they are free to say no.

Something to Think About

As a final thought, though, I do what you to think about this.  You are where you are today because of the choices you made yesterday.  It takes an average of 57 months, almost 5 years, to reach the level of National Vice President if you are doing the work and they make an average of $21,712 a month.  If you keep doing what you are doing, where will you be in 5 years?  Instead of asking yourself what if this doesn’t work, ask yourself, what if it does?  What do you really have to lose?

I would love to speak further with you about the business or the products!  You can visit my website and check out the products at http://melaniegraddy.arbonne.com or send me an e-mail at melaniegraddy@gmail.com.  We can always set up a time to video chat and really discuss the details, if you would like, as well.  After our chat, I will send you a little information packet along with a few samples of some our most popular products.  I look forward to hearing from you!
