From a dream to reality is my story of how you can make anything happen if you want it badly enough! Don’t let anyone or anything stop you from achieving what you want in life!
Arriving in the UK with nothing!
Getting off the plane in the UK 14 years ago from South Africa was a very daunting moment. Armed with just a couple of very heavy suitcases and a plan for a new life! All I had was just £500 to my name. Scared and with no clue what to expect my life in the UK began. How was an ardent sun worshiper going to cope with the cold, wet and windy weather in England? Was building a new life in a county far from home with no friends or family to support me really possible?
Stepping out of the comfort Zone
To make this work, my decision was to push myself out of my comfort zone. Step by Step and day by day I built a new life. For anyone who has done this you will know how hard it can be. A new culture can be difficult to integrate into. There are many challenges to face, but I did this as I wanted more than anything to make this work. My focus was always on making my dreams a reality.
Initially I built a successful career in marketing. But commuting every day felt like such a slog. Feeling unhappy and not living my best life meant I didn’t feel fulfilled. Discovering Arbonne through the love of the products let me start a side hustle. I met new people and gained more confidence in myself. After 2 years I took the decision to leave the corporate world and work on my business full time.
Now I am living my best life!
Fast forward to 2019 and I can say categorically that my Arbonne business has truly enabled me to live a life I never thought was possible. When I started with Arbonne in 2011 I could never have imagined the opportunities and the people it was going to bring to my life.
A major bonus has been able to meet so many inspirational people. I remember going to the first company conference in 2012 and watching so many of the high achieving people within Arbonne walking on the stage. The thoughts running through my head of ‘will this ever be me?’
Over the years my knowledge, confidence and network has built, and I began to see real achievements in my business. Consistency was key. Ignoring the nay sayers and staying focused on my goals got me to where I am today. Now I have built an amazing team of people and we all support each other.
Great perks and my dream car!
The hard work and effort I put in over the past few years led me to be promoted to the 3rd of 4 levels of management within Arbonne. Becoming Vice President Level also meant I was gifted a cash bonus to drive a White Mercedes Benz of my choosing. This along with other perks such as Tiffany’s for Christmas, gifts for Valentines and flowers on my birthday mean that I feel truly appreciated and spoiled.
Serving and empowering others has always been my calling. Being able to combine this with the passion I have for health and well being and enjoy a successful career is an amazing feeling.
Enjoying a flexible working life!
Almost 3 years ago another dream came true. I became a mother, something which I didn’t think would ever happen to me. Because my longed-for daughter is so precious to me I wanted to spend time as much time with her as possible. Being a present parent was vitally important to me. My business enables me to do this. Today I do Arbonne part time and have replaced by corporate marketing manager income.
Anything is possible!
It takes guts and determination to do anything in life. We now live in Norfolk, by the sea and have realised my dream of a relaxing family life with a business I love.
Anything is possible if you work for it, any dream can become a reality if you focus and strive for it.
Driving a white Mercedes and being part of a fabulous conference where I got to walk the stage for me was a dream. This year that dream came true proving anything is possible!
