What Could You Do If You Could Not Fail?
Sarah Allen, originally from Sydney, was working at the Sydney Opera House in Communications when she met her husband Chris. They quickly got married and had two beautiful boys. After Chris’ action thriller novels became self-published, Sarah continued the search for her very own dream come true.
Although I operated a social media marketing agency and maintained a part-time marketing role, I still had serious FOMO when it came to realising my ultimate dream and life purpose.
I met my upline and business coach ERVP Michelle Sutherland at a women’s networking event. Michelle said to me, “I’m going to retire from full-time corporate at the age of 30” (due to the consistent income created from her success as an Arbonne Independent Consultant). Without hesitation, I handed over my business card and arranged to find out more!
After I heard about the Arbonne opportunity and tried the vegan products, I realized Arbonne could easily replace all my current personal care products! And, it made even more sense to convert these consumable products into an income stream with a tax-smart online retail business, and show others how to do the same.
After some initial success, I realised that the silver bullet in life and business was acquiring a mindset of growth — both through personal development and greater self-awareness. I made a goal to learn about the daily habits of successful people. I learned about the importance of taking care of oneself physically, mentally and spiritually using meditation, practising kindness and speaking with love. I completed two half marathons and set my sights on a full marathon to challenge the limiting beliefs I had about myself.
While going through this process of personal development, my business started to flourish. It’s been incredible to see the tribe of heart-centred, kind and coachable individuals who’ve found success with the Arbonne opportunity — and had an amazing time throughout the process. Fun fact: Our team became known for our unicorn-loving antics, so as a result — as our business grew — we were given unicorn gifts and unicorn-themed encouragement from our clients and side sisters across the world!
After having reached three of the four levels of Arbonne management and earning a cash bonus to put towards the ownership of an incredible Mercedes-Benz GLA 220D, my goals only continue to grow. I have a vision to develop a team that also earns the cash bonus and put an entire fleet of white Mercedes-Benzes on the road. I want to give back via the ACF, have a positive impact in local communities and abroad, and continue being the best version of myself.
The question, “What could you do if you could not fail?” encourages me to be positive and resilient in everything I do, and show others how to do the same.
I’m grateful for Arbonne — not just for the friendships, the incredible wellness products and the financial opportunity — but also for the ability to learn and teach others (including our children) what it truly means to be positive citizens.
