New Business Launch!

Join me as I launch a new business! Come and discover the Arbonne difference: botanically based cutting edge products that produce results. Arbonne is about sharing great products and a terrific opportunity for family and friends to get together. I'm not a pushy sales person. I am probably the worlds worst at selling things because I don't want people to waste their money. I know first hand how hard it is to make ends meet. I know how hard common Average Joe's and Jane's work everyday to make enough to put food on their tables and get the bills paid. But I also know that we all like to look good, and Arbonne definitely has all of the right products. I know this because I have experience first hand that they work!

About two months ago a friend of mine invited me to her house for an Arbonne party. I had never heard of Arbonne, so out of curiosity, and a desire to help my friend out, I went. We had a blast! We laughed, snacked, and tried on good smelling stuff for almost 4 hours. When I first walking into the door, Tommie (she is the Arbonne consultant) greeted me with a friendly smile and the most bubbly personality one could ever imagine. I was actually a bit taken aback at first at how bubbly she really was. She grabbed me by the arm and led me to the sink where she washed my hands with the most wonder stuff known to mankind.

It was a Sea Salt Scrub. Part of the Arbonne Aromaessentials Line. This magnificent stuff left my hands feeling soft and hydrated and I could not get over how wonderful it felt, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when I brought it home as my free gift just for showing up at the party. After putting the sea salt scrub on my hands she noticed the terrible redness that plagued them. She immediately began to worry and apologize for breaking out my hands. I laughed and told her not to worry because my hands always look that way. I told her about my contact dermatitis from the lab coats I wore at my former job. And even though I no longer work there, my hands are permanently scarred because of the constant rash I had. She pulled out some stuff called Skin Conditioning Oil and put one drop on the top of my hand and rubbed in in. I kept looking at my hand and the top of it kept getting lighter and lighter. By the end of the night, my had looked normal. It stayed that way for three days!

So the night went on and she talked about this wonderful anti-aging stuffed called RE9. And she let us put the stuff on our faces and it felt wonderful. It made our skin feel very soft, and it really improved my complexion in just one use. Then we started talking makeup and she brought out this stuff that I call HEAVEN IN A BOTTLE. It is Makeup primer.

Once I tried this stuff, I had to buy it, so my very first Arbonne purchase was the makeup primer and skin conditioning oil. I love both products. I have been using them now for two months and I can really tell a difference in how my skin looks and feels. So, about a week after I went to my friends party, I decided to host my own. And as a free gift for hosting a party, I got this stuff.

It is hand creme. I have been using it at work and I no longer get dry hands from all of the hand washing I do. Not to mention all of my coworkers are begging to use some of my lotion. I'm here to tell you, these products are fantastic. So I have been kicking the idea of starting up my own business to sell the products. The overhead to start is pretty nominal. Only $109. But could I be successful enough to spend that much on something that might fail? Money has been super tight the past few months, and it has been a very hard decision. But several people that I know have told me they wanted to buy some things from Arbonne if I got into the business, so when I realized that I had almost $400 worth of products sold already, I decided that I might as well take the plunge and dive into business. So last night I kicked it off. I paid the money to become a New Independent Arbonne Consultant, and I am now officially a business owner. I am so scared that I won't succeed, but at the same time, I am determined to make it work. But in order to make it work, I need help from my friends and my family. What I am asking of all of you is to log on to If you are in the USA click the word English under the American flag and it will take you to the USA version of the website. If you are from England, there is a website from you. (Arbonne is just getting started in England, so there is huge potential for anyone wishing to get into the business from there.) If you are from Canada, there is a website for you, and even a website for those of you from Australia. So go onto the website and look around. If you decided you would like to purchase something, then you will need to have a consultant. I would hope that you would choose me, so to make that easier, I am listing my Consultant ID #18204462. By entering this, you can sign up to be one of my Internet clients. If you would like to get a 20% discount on all of your products, I can help you out by signing you up as a Preferred Client. (It is a simple $29 membership fee, and the perks are great!) It's not any different than having a Sam's Club membership. And after you are a preferred client, then you are eligible to upgrade to an independent consultant for as little as $80. All of the information is on the website, and as always if you have any questions, please email me. Also, if you want to sample something, let me know, and I could send you some samples through the mail.

So everyone wish me luck and thank you in advance for your support.

Hi Cece,
Thanks for dropping by. Good luck with your selling. I'm an Avon rep.
Have been doing it for 10 years now. My sales have dropped to only a few original customers but that is because now I'm working i don't have the motivation to go out getting new customers. I'm no longer a team leader with my job i was unable to get to sales meeting.
anyway good Luck!!

Cece said...

Sorry Kylie, I suppose I should have left Sexy's comment there, but I was afraid that it was a virus or something and I didn't want people clicking on it. Now your comment doesn't make much sense. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Jo,
My sister has sold Avon for years, as well as pampered chef, Home interiors and lord knows what else. I have always helped her, so I am counting on her to help me during my venture. She had better come through.
Have a great week ladies.

Hi Cece!

Wow, how cool is that! My best friend does Arbonne and she LOVES it. I've bought a few things from her but I'm not very consistent.

If you love the product like she does, you'll do great!

Good luck!

Happy Mother's Day

Suzanne said...

Well you know I'm going to try this stuff. But I'm very sensitive. We'll see.

I tried to call you today to say Happy Mother's Day, but was unable. I tried to call Bindi, and Giggie, etc. and no go. I think the lines are jammed. Just know I love you. Happy Mother's Day.

ok, i have a technical micro question for you.
where i work everything has to be clean but not sterile. before any equipment touches product it is sprayed with 70% ethanol.
we have been in the habit of using a synthetic chamois type cloth for cleaning and the etOH after that.
we are no longer allowed to use the chamois due to the possibility of contamination
so what i want to know is: in a non-sterile environmentis a clean paper towel each time overkill?

bacillus subtillus is the microbe that has the interest of the tech manager, he seems to be ignoring any other possible contaminant

Cece said...

Bacillus subtilis, known as the hay bacillus or grass bacillus, is a Gram-positive, catalase-positive bacterium commonly found in soil.[3] A member of the genus Bacillus, B. subtilis is rod-shaped, and has the ability to form a tough, protective endospore, allowing the organism to tolerate extreme environmental conditions.B. subtilis is not considered a human pathogen; it may contaminate food but rarely causes food poisoning. If I were the one cleaning the countertop I would opt for either Clorox or Lysol wipes. Not only do the kill bacteria, but they also kill viruses too. It sound to me that your boss just has OCD. I'm not sure why he/she is so concerned about Bacillus subtilis. It's MRSA that he/she should be worrying about!!!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.

You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may commense to get income with a money that usually is spent
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'm ready to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit my pages and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per day now. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
