Know Your Purpose
Gina Alfieri of Milton, Ontario, was open to change in her life, and impressed by the Arbonne products. At her husband’s urging, she reviewed the business opportunity and decided to grab hold of a life by design!
As I sit here reflecting on what my life looks like now, I am overwhelmed with feelings of gratitude, contentment and immeasurable blessings. Please allow me to share with you how my good life became an extraordinary one!
I am originally from Buffalo, New York, but when I married in 1999, I moved to Toronto, Ontario. It may be only a few hours from Buffalo, but in many ways, it is so different. It was a time of major change in my life. I had a new marriage, a new home, new friends, a new job. I landed a position as an operations manager for a physiotherapy company and really enjoyed the career that I was beginning to build. A few years after marrying, we had our first son. Our lives changed forever. My priorities changed and I began to think about this life we created and in what capacity I was going to return to my career. I decided to return to work full time, and two years later, we had our second son. When I returned this time, I returned to a busy clinic working more palatable hours. But when we had our third son two years after that, I really pondered returning at all. I was growing tired of the massive commute and the rat race, yet I knew that I needed and wanted to contribute to our family financially. I was searching for a change, but had no idea what that was going to look like.
Three years ago, my life took a wild turn. I was a busy mom of three boys under the age of 5, running a successful clinic in a busy metro area, and striving daily to keep it all in balance. Can you relate?
During a long overdue coffee date, Kimberly Beaman introduced me to the Arbonne products, and I will forever be thankful to her for changing the trajectory of my life! I was very sceptical about skin care products. As someone who has had major allergies all my life, I have had challenges finding products that don’t contain ingredients I’m allergic to. Once I experienced how amazing the Arbonne products are, I began recommending them to all my friends and to anyone who would listen. Kim was smart. She gave me a folder with information in it about the business opportunity. Well, I didn’t read it — not at first anyway. My husband did, though, and he urged me to take a look at the numbers. Once I read the information, I realized there is an amazing opportunity attached to these state-of-the-art products. We recommend things to people every day — a book, a movie, clothing— but I have never received a cheque from the local bookstore or theatre!
It was then that I made a decision. I made a decision to live my life by design — to live a life of purpose, driven by passion. I made a decision to build a successful organization in and around my life, giving me the freedom and flexibility to choose my own schedule, knowing that this business changes lives. This amazing opportunity has been a huge blessing in my life. Take hold of this opportunity to make your life one that you design. Don’t just take what’s dealt to you. Get into the driver’s seat and create your own opportunities in life with Arbonne.
I want to thank my amazing team. You have touched my life and made it so much fun to build a business. Our friendships will be ones that last a lifetime. I cannot wait to hand over a set of keys to each of you. Keep pressing toward the goal for your prize. Your hard work and determination will not be in vain! I love you all.
A big thank you to my upline and friend, ENVP Sheila Howard, for your guidance, love and support. I look forward to joining you on all the NVP trips!
I want to thank my unbelievably supportive husband, Stephen, and our three beautiful boys, Anthony, Cristian and Nicolas. It is for you and because of you that I started this journey. You bring so much joy to my life and I look forward to creating many more fantastic memories.
Arbonne’s leadership at the Home Office is so amazing. The calibre of people who run this company is so impressive. Thank you to the U.S. and Canada Home Offices for all you do for us in the Field. We are fortunate to have you.
