Arbonne International

Swiss formulated, made in the USA.
Products and opportunity are available in the USA, Canada, Australia and the UK.

An exciting opportunity
Whether you’re looking to have more time and money for your family; have creative control over your life and work, or make a positive difference contributing to people’s lives, Arbonne International might be just what you’re looking for.

Arbonne offers you:
* Superior, botanically-based skin care products
* Generous compensation plan* Exceptional support and training
* Committed leadership

I love that Arbonne has an online university where you can do training and there are also online or MP3 files (learn and burns) you can listen to whenever it is convenient.

I also love that to grow my business I don’t have to do parties. I have had a lot of success with lending a kit for 3 days and then following up when I collect the kit. Regularly talking to people about the Arbonne products and the business opportunity is the most important thing. I love the products and I love to be able to help people find the right products for them and/or be able to enjoy the financial opportunities that Arbonne has to offer.

When you reach Regional Vice President (RVP) level you are eligible for the White Mercedes Benz cash bonus program. My upline got hers in just 9 months!! The average time to get to RVP in 2007 was 21.7 months so she was a little ahead of the curve.

Let me know if you have any questions and I will be happy to help.

How can I protect myself from identity theft?

I received this email from a friend today and I think it is important to share.

This is ATTORNEY’s ADVICE – at NO CHARGE and is Not A Joke!!
If you dislike attorneys….. You will love them for these tips.

A corporate attorney sent the following out to the employees in his company.
1. Do not sign the back of your credit cards. Instead, put ‘PHOTO ID REQUIRED.’
2. When you are writing checks to pay on your credit card accounts, DO NOT put the complete account number on the ‘For’ line. Instead, just put the last four numbers. The credit card company knows the rest of the number, and anyone who might be handling your check as it passes through all the check processing channels won’t have access to it.
3. Put your work ! phone # on your checks instead of your home phone. If you have a PO Box use that instead of your home address. If you do not have a PO Box, use your work address.
Never have your SS# printed on your checks. (DUH!) You can add it if it is necessary. But if you have It printed, anyone can get it.
4. Place the contents of your wallet on a photocopy machine. Do both sides of each license, credit card, etc. You will know what you had in your wallet and all of the account numbers and phone numbers to call and cancel. Keep the photocopy in a safe place. I also carry a photocopy of my passport when I travel either here or abroad. We’ve all heard horror stories about fraud that’s committed on us in stealing a Name, address, Social Security number, credit cards.

Unfortunately, I, an attorney, have first hand knowledge because my wallet was stolen last month. Within a week, the thieve(S) ordered an expensive monthly cell phone package, applied for a VISA credit card, had a credit line approved to buy a Gateway computer, received a PIN number from DMV to change my driving record information online, and more. But here’s some critical information to limit the damage in case this happens to you or someone you know:

5. We have been told we should cancel our credit cards immediately. But the key is having the toll free numbers and your card numbers handy so you know whom to call. Keep those where yo u can find them.
6. File a police report immediately in the jurisdiction where your credit cards, etc., were stolen. This proves to credit providers you were diligent, and this is a first step toward an investigation (if there ever is one).

But here’s what is perhaps most important of all : (I never even thought to do this.)
7. Call the 3 national credit reporting organizations immediately to place a fraud alert on your name and also call the Social Security fraud line number. I had never heard of doing that until advised by a bank that called to tell me an application for credit was made over the internet in my name. The alert means any company that checks your credit knows your information was stolen, and they have to contact you by phone to authorize new credit.

By the time I was advised to do this, almost two weeks after the theft, all the damage had been done. There are records of all the credit checks initiated by the thieves’ purchases, none of which I knew about before placing the alert. Since then, no additional damage has been done, and the thieves threw my wallet away this weekend (someone turned it in). It seems to have stopped them dead in their tracks.

Now, here are the numbers you always need to contact about your wallet, if it has been stolen:
1.) Equifax: 1-800-525-6285
2.) Experian (formerly TRW): 1-888-397-3742
3.) Trans Union : 1-800-680 7289
4.) Social Security Administration (fra ud line): 1-800-269-0271

Please retweet this as I really think this is important information to share.

This weekend was the Memorial Day weekend so we decided to take the kids to Disneyland. We have annual passes and they have block out days during the summer so this is one of the last weekends we can use them before September.

As fate would have it, we also had some timeshare points from the Disney Vacation Club that were about to expire so instead of wasting them we decided to stay at the Grand Californian Hotal for 2 nights and spend one day by the pool.

Sunday morning and early afternoon was spent by the pool even though the sun didn’t peak through the clouds until almost noon. We also got to catch up with an old friend of JD’s for dinner. It’s so much fun catching up with people who knew him when he was really young, they have the best stories… lol.

Monday we got up early so Mr 5 could get all his rides in before Disneyland got too crowded and we needed to head home.

Here are some of the rides they got to go on, between 9 am & 3pm.

Star Wars
Small World
Alice in Wonderland
Tea cups
Casey Jr
Haunted Mansion
Big Thunder Mountain
Winnie the Pooh (Miss 4 – twice)
Buzz Lightyear (Miss 4 – twice)

We had all had a great time. Even though the kids have been many times before they didn’t want to leave. I was tired and wanted to beat the traffic home so the kids could get to bed “on time” for school Tuesday.

Where did you get your daughters bed?

Where did you get your daughters bed?

Our daughter has the cutest princess room. The centrepiece of the room is this beautiful toddler canopy bed. Now if you have read some of my other blogs you will know that I like quality things at great prices.
This bed is beautiful and to my surprise was just $199.99. Now if you are handy you could make your own canopy or purchase one for just $79.95
Given the decor in our little girls room we decided to get a different bedding set. We chose a solid baby pink set which looks just great. The bed is a standard crib/toddler size bed so you can re-use your existing crib mattress.
If you would like to buy your own visit Leaps and Bounds.

What makes Arbonne products different?

What makes Arbonne products different?

There are some things that make Arbonne different from other skin care ranges out there. I have tried quite a few different product ranges for myself and my family and I am very impressed with the quality and the REsults that we have had with Arbonne.

Arbonne International has been around in the US for 29 years and has recently expanded into Australia, Canada and the UK.

The products are:
BOTANICALLY BASED: this means there is a blend of science and nature based on herbal and botanical principles and our products are plant based.

pH-CORRECT: our skin’s pH is about 5.5. So we need to make sure we are using products that have the same pH as our skin so we don’t disturb the acid mantle that protexts our skin against bacteria. ALL Arbonne products are pH correct to ensure maximum benefit.

HYPOALLERGENIC: Voluntary human testing meets Hypoallergenic substantiation claim criteria. We have one of the lowest allergenic rates in the industry.

DERMATOLOGIST TESTED: Voluntary human tests are done under the watchful eye of an independent dermatologist.

NEVER TESTED ON ANIMALS: Substantiation and safety testing is performed at independent laboratories on voluntary human panels. The products are certified vegan.

FORMULATED WITHOUT ANIMAL PRODUCTS OR BY-PRODUCTS: Animal products and by-products are very drying to the skin; and have detrimental long-term effects. Arbonne products are derived from plants and herbs together with science and technology offering superior benefits.

FORMULATED WITHOUT MINERAL OIL: mineral oil is derived from crude oil, is occlusive and cannot penetrate the skin, because it’s molecules are larger than our pores. It also blocks pores (the skin cannot breathe)and therefore contributes to blemishes. Products with mineral oils just sit on the skin surface and actually inhibit the skin’s ability to obsorb oxygen, release toxins and leeches out vitamins A, C and E. In other words, they can interfere with skin functions as well as advanced delivery systems. All oils used in Arbonne products are bio-available (eg plant based).

FORMULATED WITHOUT ARTIFICAL DYES OR CHEMICAL FRAGRANCES: these are known irritants and can cause allergic reactions. The lovely smell of our products come from natural botanical scents.

FORMULATED WITHOUT SD40 ALCOHOL: none of our toners contain SD 40 Alcohol, which is the drying agent in hairspray. It’s so drying that, when applied to the skin, it may give the skin a tight and clean feeling at first. But it dries out your skin and strips it of it’s natural oils – your oil glands then overproduce in order to compensate for the loss.

FORMULATED WITHOUT LANOLIN OR COLLAGEN: these are both animal by-products. Lanolin comes from the sweat gland of a sheep and is very irritating to many people’s skin. Collagen cannot be absorbed through the skin in the form of a cream as the molecules are too large.

If you would like to sample any of the Arbonne product line please sign my guestbook and provide information about your skin concerns.

It Works! Marketing - USA and Canada

It Works! Marketing – USA and Canada

When looking for a network marketing opportunity it is important to find one that has a product or products you believe in that are consumable so that they generate residual income.

I spend a lot of time on the computer and have done a lot of research on different opportunities and It Works Marketing is definately worth considering.

About a month ago a friend of mine introduced me to the company and specifically the Ultimate Body Wrap. It is a body wrap that contains natural ingredients and can help you lose inches in just 45 minutes.

Sheri has lost 28.5 inches, 10 pounds and has gone from a size 22 to a 16 in just 6 weeks and she is not alone in her weight loss journey. Men and women alike are seeing great results with the products.

People can purchase the products as a retail customer, as a preferred customer (auto-ship required) or as a distributor.

Become a distributor for just $35 with a Basic Kit or purchase the $199 Distributor Kit which includes 8 single wrapped Ultimate Applicators, a green padfolio with start up materials, one month of E-office, one month of FitWorks and a personal website.

You can have a wrap party or sell the individual wraps for between $20 and $25 each to make a return on your investment.

The back office offers great online training and resources to get your business started fast.
