Network Marketing Worth A Try

Last Christmas I was introduced to a health and wellness company by my daughter-in-law and son who live in Oklahoma.

At the time, I didn't think much about it, but since, I have seen what an opportunity it is.

Erica and Troy first gave me the Joint Formula which is to help support healthy joint functioning with Arbonne's Joint Formula that includes glucosamine sulfate to help relieve my arthritis. They also gave me a natural balancing cream to help restore hormone balance naturally.

After a month, I reordered and included their skin care system along with their makeup of natural ingredients.

I felt and looked so much better and began adding their vitamins which include an omega 3 oil and a defense builder. Mayo Clinic also has me on a protein shot called Humira to surpress my immune system to control my Rheumatoid Arthritis, and I was told I could get the flu and pneumonia more easily, so I had taken flu and pneumonia shots.

This Christmas, my entire family of six children, their spouses and thirteen grandchildren were at our home when the flu hit. I didn't get a cold, the flu, or even a sniffle while I watched all but four kids and two adults come down with stomach flu.

I have found the company has an incredible background for research and development. The company is Arbonne International founded in Switzerland in 1975. In 1980 it was brought to the United States to Irvine, California where the products are produced with the research still going on in Switzerland. My son's best friend's brother, Jerry Nichols, became symptom free from Crohns disease after using some of the products. His school teacher wife Rachele, was introduced to Arbonne through the hormone balancing cream after she had a cyst removed. Jerry is a senior financial adviser at Merrill Lynch, and researched the company finding it was the channel of network marketing. It is debt free and in its "J curve", and has doubled in sales the last three years.

He said it was the right product (health and wellness), at the right time (baby boomer generation) and predicts Arbonne will be a household word in the near future.

It has an unbelievable compensation plan, unlike any other he said. He went to work to help his wife take advantage of the network marketing opportunity and set up a plan for fast growth. In the past year, his wife has been signing up Arbonne consultants so they can shop at a discount. They don't do parties, they buy at discount, and Arbonne sends them a thank you check for every item they buy. They also give you a commission for those signing up under you and shopping.

As you buy your shampoo, sun protection, and vitamins, baby products that do not have any harsh chemicals, no animal by-products, no petroleum products or mineral oils, Arbonne is sending you a check to say thanks.

As your network of consumers grows, Arbonne awards you with a white Mercedes at the RVP level.

Since Jerry and Rachele revamped the program into an easy way to grow a team, Oklahoma has exploded in RVPs. Two weeks ago, I traveled to Oklahoma to go with Jerry's parents and others to a meeting the Nichols hosted that drew 3,500 in the Arlington, Texas convention center with several hundred turned away because their room was full. The hotel parking lots were full of white Mercedes. There are now 80 RVPs driving them in Oklahoma.

No, doubt, the CEO and President of Arbonne have taken note and have placed Jerry on the advisory board for Arbonne. Both, attended the meeting, I was at and I was able to get my picture with the new CEO Robert Henry. He came to Arbonne after working with Avon, Amway, Boise, and doing marketing in his own company for Mercedes.

Signing up as consultants are every walk of life: doctors, dentists, nurses, teachers, housewives, college students (you must be 18), preachers, their wives, grandfathers, dads, grandmothers, aunts, young men, lawyers, real estate dealers, all with great stories. Rachele's sister, Karla home-schools her four kids and didn't think she had time, but finally she did and now she can't believe she has a Mercedes (no garage). My children have signed as Arbonne consultants and are loving the products.

If you are looking for a good opportunity or a plan B check out the Arbonne opportunity at their web site: You have everything to gain. Wouldn't it be great to see our town fill up with those white cars.

It's nice to know you are using products that are pure, safe, and beneficial because Arbonne makes better choices.
