This has been the most incredible journey. In a short period of time, I have begun to create the life of my dreams! I have since retired from nursing and now own a beautiful lake house. I have every day available to spend with my family. I can honestly say that now I own my life!

multiplied and their efforts were multiplied. In this way, we all won. It is the concept of teamwork that makes time leveraging possible. Without a team, you are working for yourself, by yourself. You are doing all the work as if you were self-employed. Time, in my opinion, is more impor- tant than money. You cannot buy time. You cannot stop time. Everyone has exactly the same amount of time, regardless of who they are. The difference lies in how we each choose to use it. So, work your Arbonne business with passion, be clear about your purpose, be consistent with your effort and give it enough time. That is what I teach my team.
