Arbonne: My Full-Time Job!
Rebecca McIntyre of Horsham, Victoria, embodies what it means to be a successful businessperson. She made short-term sacrifices (big ones!) while focusing on the long term. She had a crystal-clear Why for success and stayed committed to it. The result: Rebecca has improved many lives, including her own, and now she’s there all the time for her family.
For the 13 years before starting my Arbonne business, I worked full-time for the Australian federal government. I also ran a business with my husband and at the time was coaching the both A-grade and B-grade netball teams — and I worked essentially full time for another business, a party-plan company. Add to that our wonderful little girl Izabella, and my life was full.
I found it hard to juggle everything I was doing and also be the mum to Izabella I wanted to be. I felt like I was on life’s treadmill, getting up every day going to work and coming home with no time for anyone. Days rolled into weeks, weeks into months. When I was working my 9-to-5 job, I wasn’t able to take Izabella to assemblies or pick her up from school, and I remember every Monday was devastating because I couldn’t stay for assemblies like the other mums. It broke my heart to see her disappointed little face.
Then in one day — actually, one phone call — my whole life changed forever.
I was explaining my struggles to my lifelong friend and now amazing Sponsor, Chelsea Launer, and she invited me to look at this wonderful business — and for that I will be forever grateful! After hearing the information, I felt as though I had been led to that precise moment, the life-changing moment I’d been hoping for. I knew this would be the point in my life that I would look back on and know it changed forever. I also knew that if I didn’t make a different choice — this choice, right now — nothing would change. It was up to me to change my destiny, so I jumped in and didn’t look back.
I was very nervous, as skin care and makeup were very much out of my comfort zone. But with the support of my upline and NVP I was able to follow a simple system for success and grow and learn as my business grew. A major attraction to Arbonne for me was the ability to earn as you learn, that you didn’t have to have any specific experience to be successful in the business. When I achieved RVP my life truly changed forever.
Most people will tell you that when you achieve your own Mercedes it is life-changing, but to hand the Mercedes-Benz keys to the beautiful RVP Kristy Davidson was when Arbonne truly showed me what an amazing gift we have being able to change other peoples lives forever.
I resigned from my government job (just 12 months after starting Arbonne). I began attending Izabella’s assemblies — and I was even able to help out in the classroom! And, in one of my happiest moments, my husband was finally able to resign from a job he was not happy with but held for 20 years to support us. Now he gets to enjoy a job he really wants! It’s completely transformed his life, and it’s thanks to Arbonne. In 18 months this business has truly transformed our family’s lives, and you can’t put a price on that.
I did not think in a million years that I would be running a Heath and Wellness Online Network marketing business but I am so glad that I was open to learning about Arbonne. If I hadn’t taken that opportunity, my life now would be very different. I would be missing all the important things in my daughter’s life and not really understanding the true meaning of living.
First, to my best friend in the world, and now my Sponsor, Chelsea Launer. Without you offering me this opportunity none of this would be possible and myself and my family will thankyou forever. To the amazing and inspirational ENVP Debbie Loughnane: Thank you for saying yes and trusting in the amazing Christy Drieling, because without your courage none of us would be here. Debbie, your support, coaching, belief and friendship has changed my life. I am forever grateful. Also to your Husband Tim and family thanks for accepting mine into your lives.
Thank you to my amazing team, for trusting in me and saying yes. Without your inspiration and courage, I would not be here today. Especially RVP Kristy Davidson: I am so honoured to have you as a business partner but most of all a friend. Thank you!
To my husband and best friend Brent: You have always trusted in me to make the right decision. You supported me every step with our Arbonne business. We are creating together a difference for our family. Every day I am eternally grateful to you for allowing me to pursue this business and our dreams. I love you so much!
To my Why, my reason for all this, my daughter Izabella: I am so grateful I have been able to create a business that has allowed me to be the mother I want to be to you and have the freedom to be with you every step of your journey. You are my reason for everything. I love you so much. You are my greatest gift in this world.
To all of my Arbonne sister lines: Thank you for all of your support and guidance. I’m grateful for and inspired by you all.
Last but not least, to my Mum, Dad and sister: You have always supported me in everything I’ve done and encouraged me to reach for stars and follow my dreams. Without your help and support, this would not have become a reality for our family. Thank you! Also a big thank you to my in-laws, who have been major supporters of my Arbonne business.
