My 2 cents on Arbonne

Being a former Rep with Arbonne, I just wanted to add my two cents worth after seeing so much on the net in regards to their filing of Chapter 11. At least it wasn’t Chapter 7 Bankrupcty!!! It truly does amaze me the amount of negative publicity but also the uneducated……people commenting that it is a scham, pyramid and so on………lets be real here now, if it was a pyramid, do you think the Government would know by now???? Then lets look at Corporate America……I will save that for another post one day!!
In looking at the numbers, I was one of many Reps that got started during it’s huge growth spurt. I must admit I did like the products and the simplicity of having one line since owning my own mobile spa at the time. I will also admit I hated doing parties and so did the people where I lived, they would have rather had a root canal done and, well come to think of it, maybe me too!!! That just inns’t me, with all those games and such, now some people are great at it and it shows not me.
I had a team growing, not huge but a good size, I made some money, spent alot more money. Made some nice friends, who alot don’t talk to me now, some still do.
For me, I remember not enjoying it, I will be honest, as quitting was not an option, was told to get out there and talk to everyone and hand everyone an info pac, I really did hate that part. I love meeting new people and making new friends but I didn’t like targeting everyone, not everyone needed or wanted to be in business!
When I did finally decide to step back and quit, it was a hard decision for me, partially because of what is taught to us (quitting is not an option) and because I am not a quitter. I had to be honest with myself though, I didn’t like it, wasn’t enjoying it, had spent alot of money, had lots of product (everyone I knew got Arbonne that Christmas and it took me almost 2 years to use up my products left over) and it was alot of work (not that I am against alot or hard work but…..) and people were starting to avoid me and that really bothered me!
I still remember the day I did quit and was going through all my paper work to get rid of, it felt good. It felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I wasn’t a quitter, it just wasn’t for me and there is nothing wrong with that.
I know alot of women who had made it in Arbonne, making good money and are enjoying it, and many who have also quit. Just like any other industry out there or company.
It may or may not be a good fit for you.
Just because a company isn’t a good fit, doesn’t mean the profession isn’t good or doesn’t work, does not mean it’s not good. Ever been to a bad restaurant????? Stop going to all restaurants???
I attended many conventions where I met many neat ladies (yes and some snobs too), heard great speakers like Rita Davenport and received some good training.
Here’s hoping they can re-structure and keep going!
