Time Is Gold
Lola Miranda of Milford, NJ, believed her whole life that the only way to make a living was by putting in a 40- to 60- hour workweek. But when her daughter fell ill, she realized that the Arbonne Opportunity could give her something her corporate job couldn’t: more time with her family.
I spent most of my life, 30 years or so, in Corporate America, doing the 9 to 5 grind. I worked for several distributors as a national account manager, and although I did not hate my job and received many accolades and awards, I always wished I had time freedom. My stress level was high, being a working mom of two amazing girls who were involved in many activities. Although we had a beautiful life, I missed 18 summers of my girls’ lives because I was always at work.
Then one summer, a friend invited me to an Arbonne Presentation at the home of the one and only Independent Consultant, ENVP Debbie Neal. I really had no interest, and I was not impressed when I first heard about the Arbonne Opportunity. But as faith would have it, when the school year started, my daughter Christina made a new friend in school named Brooke Neal, and this led me back to Debbie and her incredible vision. Our friendship grew, but I still did not see this opportunity working for me. Although I did attend Arbonne events and saw a lot of evidence of success, fear kept me from jumping in. For about five years, I just watched but could not see myself ever doing it.
Then, life happened and hit us hard. I was not prepared for the impact. One of my beautiful girls fell ill with an eating disorder, and it almost took her life. We spent almost three years getting her well, and it was during that time that I felt fear like I never felt before. Once we were out of the storm and she recovered, I jumped into Arbonne, for now I feared nothing.
There were many obstacles that came my way as I was building my Arbonne business, but I knew that if I was able to help my daughter save her life, there was nothing that was impossible, with faith, love and belief. I cleared my mind of negativity and started implementing self-care and personal development. There was no going back. My girls were watching my journey and cheering me on, and I could not disappoint them.
Once I had a few people on my team, I owed it to them to show them what was possible. I developed my belief by attending all Arbonne events, never missing anything. I always showed up even when others didn’t. There was no option other than to earn the white Mercedes-Benz Cash Bonus at the RVP level by helping others succeed.
To complete Region I became more disciplined in my daily and weekly activities, and I spoke to more people. It is our job to present this opportunity with a clear vision to as many people each and every month. Arbonne is an amazing gift that will add value to a person’s life, and we must offer it to everyone.
My life has completely changed as a result of promoting to ERVP. I said goodbye to my corporate job and never looked back. I now enjoy time freedom, and I’m on a mission to make this possible for everyone who joins my team. My daughter Melissa has joined my team, and I’m excited that she will have choices as she grows her business. I now wake up excited for my future and I live stress-free, all because I opened my mind, started purchasing pure and safe products, and helped others do the same. We are one decision away from a completely different life. We have one life, and time is our most valuable asset.
I’m so grateful for the many people who have shaped my journey.
My incredible team: Thank you all for saying yes to me and to Arbonne. I’m all in with you, and we are going to the top together. I am committed to your success and helping you to achieve your goals. You are the best people, and I am honored to know you all, including Karina, my direct RVP, and Silvia, my first yes!
ENVP Debbie Neal: Thank you for this gift of Arbonne and for making me see all that is possible, with your gigantic vision and insane passion. Your coaching is priceless.
To my beautiful family, my Why: Thank you for supporting my dream and for cheering me on. Melissa and Christina, I’m building this legacy for you. Thank you to my husband, John, for our beautiful life. The best is yet to come!
