Why Not Me?
As a 19-year-old freshman at the University of Oklahoma, Peyton Mott was excited about pursuing her passion of helping others get healthy by earning her nursing degree. But the reality of college debt and the inflexible hours of the medical world started to sink in. The fear of limited jobs for newly graduated students hung over her head, as well. As a full-time student, she knew it wouldn’t be long before she would be off her parents’ payroll and have to support herself. She worked typical adolescent jobs, but she knew her dreams and desires were bigger than what any babysitting gig or nursing position could provide.
On February 1, 2015, I was invited to an Arbonne Presentation by my future mother-in-law. She had grown up with my upline, Bridgette Burleson, and finally said yes to hosting a get-together. I was reluctant to attend because I felt that network marketing products were not for me. As I listened to the Presentation, my interest was piqued at how pure, safe, beneficial™ the products were. As someone who values my health and wellness and works hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I could never find any supplements that met my ingredient standards. Arbonne Essentials® blew past my expectations.
A few days into participating in the 30 Days to Healthy Living and Beyond program, I was already experiencing life-changing results, and I knew so many others could benefit. Of course, my dad, as a successful executive in corporate America, was quite skeptical and did his research before I got the go-ahead to join Arbonne as an Independent Consultant. As soon as I had his approval, I jumped in with both feet. I was motivated by the fact that I was now my own boss and could build my own business rather than help build someone else’s empire in the corporate world. I loved that I got to make my own hours, be recognized for my accomplishments, and enrich my life by giving the gift of Arbonne to others.
I watched so many other women succeed by simply applying the lessons learned from trainings and Arbonne-provided tools, and I quickly learned that all I had to do was apply this information to my business. I knew very few people my age had ever reached the VP level, and I was motivated to be one of the firsts. I plugged into my upline, decided that I would not let “no’s” deter me, and vowed not to quit. I built my business by keeping it simple and making my business tactics easy for my team to follow.
By working my business consistently and building a strong team, I promoted to RVP. Earning the Mercedes-Benz Cash Bonus is truly a token of helping many people reach their goals and build their own dreams. Because of my Arbonne business, I have been able to create a life of choices for my precious family I will have one day, and I now have the ability to give back and make a difference.
Most importantly, I want to thank God for His sovereign hand over my business and for bringing me the most incredible team and Clients. I truly feel blessed and want to thank Him for His abundance and provision. I promise to always glorify God and give God the credit for the success in my business.
To my very best friend, Cory: Thank you for standing by my side for nearly five years now and for cheering me on every step of the way. Thank you for trusting me when I told you this would work and had the opportunity to change our lives forever. I love you more than you know!
To my parents, Scott and Dawn: Thank you for the unending support. You both have truly invested in my business and my team, and for that I am forever grateful. You have taught me to believe in myself and that I can have anything in this world if I work hard enough for it. I am grateful God picked you both to be my parents. I love you both.
To my Sponsor, Jenifer: I will never be able to properly repay you for introducing me to this once-in-a- lifetime opportunity. Thank you.
To my incredible upline, Bridgette Burleson: There are not enough words to thank you for your servant-hearted leadership. You have truly led from the front and held my hand from the very beginning. I love you!
To Kristi Moses and Cecilia Stoll: Thank you for all that you do for me and my team. You are the world's best vision painters and I hope to be half the leader you two are!
To my first RVP in Qualification, Avery McCain: You are so very special to me. You have such a heart for others, and you work your business with passion and integrity. Your passion is contagious.
To my first-ever ace and AM, Malinda Shanaberger: Wow! God has truly blessed my life by bringing you into it. You are such an inspiration to so many. What someone else may have used as excuses to not build this business, you have used to fuel your fire. I have no doubt that RVP is just around the corner.
To AM Melanie Grissom: I couldn’t be more proud of you and the huge business you’re building. I cannot wait to hand you the keys to your Mercedes-Benz. I love watching you change the lives of so many.
To all my DMs and Consultants: You are the lifeblood of this team. I know that God has so many incredible things planned for your life and your journey with Arbonne.
