My name is Robyn Hatley and I run a MLM business with Arbonne – alongside my other businesses!
Deluded? NO! Crazy? MAYBE! Having Fun? YES! Enjoying Succcess? OH YES!
Some of you will already know me through my other business Mums The Business and through my associate partnering with Motivating Mum . In these 2 businesses, I act as a mentor & trainer for ambitious mumpreneurs. I help mums who are either working within a MLM business or who are considering taking on a MLM business – I train & mentor them to be better business women, and to ask the right questions before deciding if MLM is the right business for them. So in this role I have to be impartial and independent, and I don’t promote (nor criticize) any particular MLM company. What this does mean though, is that I have had the wonderful privilege of truly understanding the business model of MLM, how MLM Companies differ from each other, and how to be successful at MLM!
Ok, so let’s get serious (well, just a little!) – initially I didn’t think that traditional MLM was for me. Whilst MLM is a successful, tried & tested business model, and you can “hit the ground running” with a new business within weeks (sometimes days!), I just didn’t think I could squeeze it in!
I also knew that with some MLM companies, the emphasis is on selling. Great if you have that in your skills set – but I unfortunately didn’t! You see, my previous career and current businesses were all about training, mentoring, helping others succeed (I’m an ex HR Consultant for an international blue chip company & I now run my own businesses training & mentoring mumrepreneurs).
So here’s what happened: I was introduced to Arbonne two years ago, by a close friend, who joined the business networking group that I managed. I soon became a customer of Arbonne as I personally loved the products and their commitment to being green. The products are a highly regarded, premium brand with a Swiss heritage (healthy, botanically based, pure and safe). As a conscientious mum, I’m always reading labels and avoiding the “nasties” that are often in our food and skincare / cosmetics ranges. Also, one of my daughters suffered from very dry skin, with outbreaks of eczma, and one of the products in the Arbonne range certainly did the trick in resolving this nasty condition.
What I didn’t fully understand at the time, was what a fantastic GLOBAL business opportunity Arbonne offered. I was already running 3 home-based businesses, and a family – so believe me, I wasn’t looking for another project! It was only when the prospect of relocating countries emerged on my horizon, that i began to look at my lifestyle and career / business options – and Arbonne again!
Opportunities arise when you least expect them! The key to success is being open to explore them! DO YOU HAVE A PLAN B…? Most people don’t and I didn’t really either. Considering the current economy, and also that my husband is involved in professional sport, which can take us anywhere in the world, I decided to look at Arbonne more seriously. And besides the effective, award winning Skincare, Cosmetics and Nutrition products, here are the other key reasons why I personally decided to start up an Arbonne business:
Arbonne is a 21st Century MLM business – it is an online business. That means I don’t personally manage stock, payments or deliveries. It also means that I can create a residual income (“earning money while I sleep”), so it can be run alongside my existing businesses. It also means I can run my Arbonne business from anywhere in the world (whether on holiday or permanently relocated). I found the start up costs to be lower than I expected. The products are daily consumable products, so my success is based on the effort of repeat business, not constantly finding new customers. And for me, the most exciting prospect of all, is that Arbonne is a $billion company, but currently only available in 4 countries: USA, Canada, UK and Australia. And because I am not geographically limited with Arbonne, I can grow myself a global MLM business. And I suspect, that like me, you have friends and family scattered across the world too. Its not very often that you come across an established 30 year old, successful Company that still has HUGE growth potential.
Please feel free to contact me for a coffee, a chat to find out more about the business, and the opportunity to test drive the amazing Arbonne products.
