LIVe AbuNDANTLY Arbonne Independent Consultant, National Vice President Valerie Waite Nation; Moyock, NC Life is too short not to spend each day the way you choose. I’ve found that it is possible to live that way, through Arbonne. With hard work andvalerie waite persistence, you can take this business all the way to the top. If you can be friendly, self-motivated and a good copycat, you can achieve success, and in turn have the ability to reach your dreams. What is success? It is living the life you desire by spending your time and finances the way you choose. The definition of success is not living the life someone else chooses for you. I never really knew anything like Arbonne existed. My elementary school teaching career made all of my choices for me — my schedule, my vaca- tions, my family time, how much I could squeeze into the offering plate … what for? Why couldn’t I have more so that I could give more, be more and do more? When I was first introduced to Arbonne, I never would have believed that in one short year, I’d be a Regional Vice President driving a white Mercedes-benz, nor did I expect that I could more than replace my teaching salary. I never imagined that two years later, I would be a National Vice President taking trips to Hawaii, Cancún and Paris. Valerie’s Why: son, Greggor. I first learned of the Arbonne business opportunity at a spa party hosted by a friend. I listened on the edge of my seat as Katie, my soon-to-be- sponsor, shared about the products and opportunity.

I lived in a tiny town and didn’t know very many people. I had no sales experience. Valerie’s son, Greggor. somehow, though, as I sat there listening to Katie, I knew I needed to take the information home with me. It was summer vacation and I was busy getting ready to start my first-grade class again. However, I had just spent my summer trying to think of little businesses I could start on my own so that I could get out from under a boss. As I sat in church on sunday a few weeks prior to the Presentation, I began praying that God would bring something like this into my life. I still have a little red piece of paper in my bible that I was writing goals and ideas on. You see, I knew there was more for me and that I could do something that would allow me to be a stay-at-home mom and not worry about money, yet still make a NVP difference in people’s lives. The turning point for me was when I was talking to eNVP shelly Nelson on the phone. I wanted to get more information and find out exactly what
