In 1994 the Hydraulics Business was started from the ground up and Moana helped with this while still working full-time in the city as a legal secretary. <br />Moana’s passion has always been an interest in helping people to look, feel and be their best. During the year 2006 Moana completed a Beauty Therapy Diploma and had a salon business for a short time. However going back to the family business was a necessity at the time. Everything worked out perfectly when Moana discovered Arbonne International and realized that it would fit into an already busy lifestyle.
