Love Your Life or Change It!
Leanne Quinn of Smithfield, Virginia, worked nights, holidays and weekends in a busy ER. She loved working alongside her husband, Steve, but when they had children, they realized something had to change. Leanne became a stay-at-home mom and still wanted to contribute financially but the thought of returning to ER life was terrifying. Her life was forever changed when she asked a simple question and discovered Arbonne.
I was working full time in the ER when I met my husband, Steve. I loved my job but we knew one of us would need a “regular” schedule to care for our daughter, Brooke. Soon we welcomed our son, Owen, to the family, and I became a very busy stay-at-home mom of two. I am truly blessed to have had those precious years with them, though losing my nursing salary did put a dent in our budget.
Then I met my Sponsor, NVP Jaime Dadd. I had admired her from afar, she was always smiling, present with her boys, and had the most beautiful looking skin in the world! In fact, I asked her what her secret to flawless skin was and that’s when Arbonne came into my life. I was ecstatic when Jaime offered to come over and share Arbonne with me and a few friends. As she spoke, I quickly saw how unique and different Arbonne was. How had I never heard of this before? Jaime taught me what made Arbonne different, introduced me to what I believe are the best products on the planet, and she shared her story with me.
After hearing about the business opportunity, I couldn’t sleep. The hope of Arbonne being our family’s vehicle to more time, choices, and flexibility left me with stomach butterflies. I had always imagined returning to the ER and it terrified me. How would I balance a full-time nursing schedule with my family’s busy schedule? How could I tell Brooke and Owen that I would be working on Christmas or missing bedtime stories and kisses? Arbonne became our “Plan B.” I could stay home being mom to Brooke and Owen while fitting Arbonne into the nooks and crannies of our day. I could truly be present for my family while contributing financially. I could take stress off my husband and allow him to be more present at home too.
Now Arbonne is transforming me into the best version of myself. I love the opportunity to serve others, to help them dream big, and to show my children that with hard work and heart anything is possible. ENVP Miranda Burcham encouraged me to allow myself to become “magnificently obsessed.” I was invested in my business. If Arbonne made a product, I had it. I stayed connected with my mentors and was coachable. I attended GTC. I proudly shared the business opportunity with others. I began to read and listen to self-growth books. ENVP Cecilia Stoll told me that becoming a great leader means becoming an incredible human being. I would not allow others’ disbelief or negativity to shake my firm belief. You must believe in yourself, and that Arbonne’s products are the best on the planet, and that network marketing is a brilliant business. Your Whys must be bigger than your fears.
Steve, thank you for believing in me. Thank you for not allowing me to doubt myself. You are my joy. My goal is to build this business so that you can retire you and gift provide you with more family time and fabulous vacations. I love you.
Brooke and Owen, thank you for pushing me to be my best. You are my biggest Why. Being your mommy is my greatest honor and your happiness my greatest treasure. I will show you that dreams really do come true. Daddy and I will show you the world and love you always. “I want to see you be brave!”
Helping others along their journey towards success is extremely rewarding. I am blessed to work my business alongside brave, strong, and unstoppable leaders.
