Connecting with Arbonne this year, has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. Why? Because I’ve had the chance to meet some marvelous women, and It has helped me gain an interest in creating my own detox and beauty products. To be honest, I feel as though, that was the only reason why I had a close connection to the company because the business side of it didn’t sit too well with me.
I understand no network marketing company is perfect. You have to weigh your Pros and Cons when joining any company. From January to March 2014, I did my full research on Arbonne, received my student refund at the time, and was ready to hit that join button, but it was always something holding me back. Since connecting with Arbonne, I’ve had some major problems. I am so glad I had this realization before investing my money.
