Live Your Dream Life
Gena Fryar of Bigelow, Arkansas, turned a family tragedy into her family’s dream life. When her husband was paralyzed in a car crash, Gena suddenly became the family’s sole earner. The registered nurse worked and worked, trading time for money. But thanks to the Arbonne opportunity — and incredible support from her husband and son — Gena and her family are living the dream!
I hope to capture your mind and heart for just a few moments and explain why I am so passionate about Arbonne. I can’t wait to share my story with you!
First, let me tell you that Arbonne has the most amazing products on the market! Take it from me, a true product junkie who has tried everything. At one point I had a whole bathroom full of barely used products; I struggled to find something that worked. Then my Sponsor, ERVP Sarah Wilson, gave me RE9 to try — and my life completely changed!
I knew after three days that these products were completely different. My skin was so soft… and glowing! So I researched Arbonne and learned about their philosophy of Pure, Safe, and Beneficial. I became so excited about these products that I wanted to share them with everyone.
I’d been searching for something that would allow me to work from home, earn a generous income, and have fun. At a young age I learned how precious life is. My husband had a car wreck 10 years ago and was left paralyzed, wheelchair-bound, and unable to return to work. Overnight I became our breadwinner, or as I call it, the “Sugar Momma.” I worked 50 to 60 hours a week as a Registered Nurse to keep up with our bills. I traded family time for money, thinking it was a short-term sacrifice. But six years later, I knew something had to change. So when my Sponsor, Sarah Wilson, explained the incredible Arbonne business, I knew this was my answered prayer, and I jumped in with both feet.
Just one problem: I was scared to death. I had no sales experience. I had no time — with a disabled husband, a son involved in every sport imaginable, and both night-school classes and online college courses. And I had no money. But the startup cost for an Arbonne business was so low that I could actually afford it.
I shared these fears with Sarah, and she asked me a question I want you to consider now: “If you keep doing what you’re doing, where will you be in five years?” That was three years ago, and my life has already changed so much.
I was blessed to Sponsor my best friend, Sharon Decker, my second month in the business. We locked arms and got busy! We promoted to each level together and even enjoyed a double Mercedes-Benz Presentation on May 1, 2010.
As you read my story, thinking about your own life, let me encourage you to take a second look at this amazing company. I want to you to be able to look your best, and be your best and live the life you’ve dreamed of! The products will change your skin, and this business will change your life!
To my husband: You inspire me every day. You have the best attitude about life, and never have a bad day! You are a wonderful father, husband and encouragement to others. Thank you for supporting me from day one on this journey. You rock!
To my son Dillon: Thank you for just being you! You are my Why for doing this business. You are an amazing son and I know God has amazing plans for your life. You have always been supportive of Arbonne, and thank you for listening to Learn & Burn’s all the way to school, over and over! I love you!
To Rhonda Mayo, my momma and biggest cheerleader: You have supported me in every aspect of my life and this business. I’m so grateful to be building an amazing business with you! Thank you for all that you’ve done. Your love and prayers have pushed me to never quit! Daddy, thank you for everything you have done, from dropping off products to helping Billy and Dillon. You are amazing parents. Thank you for my solid foundation! I love you both!
To my sponsor, ERVP Sarah Wilson: Thank you for stepping out of your comfort zone and sending that RE9 home with my mom, aka your “boss.” Because of that, my life and my family’s lives are forever changed. You have been such an inspiration for our team! I am blessed to be a part of your journey.
To RVP Sharon Decker: The true definition of sponsoring up! I am so blessed to have you as a friend and on my team! You are focused, determined, caring, giving… okay, I could go on! Thank you for all you do and for “doing life” with me! Love you! To Rhonda Mayo and my DMs and AMs, Katrina Davis, Callie Quiroz, and Karla Jones: I am blessed to have you in my life. I know we will all be at the top together! Love you! To all the DMs on my team: You are all amazing! You each bring something special to our team! Without your hard work I would not be here. I cannot wait for the day you each get the keys to your Benz! Love you all! To all my Consultants and Clients: A big “Thank you” for loving Arbonne as much as I do! Thank you for your loyalty and support. My dreams would not be possible without you!
To my uplines, ENVPs Cecilia Stoll, Deanna Herrin, Carrie MacDonald and ERVP Sara Langum: Thank you for never quitting when this business got hard. I am so blessed to be a part of your organization. The love, passion and leadership you have for our team is inspiring.
And most importantly, I want to thank God for this incredible blessing of freedom. I am finally able to be home with my precious family and will continue to offer this gift, so others will have the same opportunities.
