When leaving my corporate job to travel, I knew I needed to find remote work with high earning potential and something that would be ideally emotionally fulfilling. My days of answering midnight phone calls from my boss were finally over and having work-life balance was my new primary focus. I dove into digital consulting at first as this was my expertise but as any freelancer will tell you, while there are many advantages, it can also lead to never ending work days with clients requesting discounts. I knew I needed a different income stream that would leverage my time and after reading Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad, Poor Dad, I realized the only way to have the life I envisioned was by earning passive income.
Through a friend, I was introduced to Arbonne, an online brand of vegan health and wellness products with a social marketing business model. She had an online store and was earning money while she worked remotely and also helping others do the same. Skeptical at first, I researched more into the company and quickly realized all it really was is word of mouth marketing that you get paid for. Most people source recommendations from their social circles already and with Arbonne, you help others find cleaner products which help them stay healthier. After trying the skincare, makeup, and nutrition lines, I fell in love with the products and coming from someone with sensitive skin and a luxury background, I can truly say the quality of products are top-tier and match the company’s motto of being pure, safe, and beneficial.
I became an Independent Consultant and launched my Arbonne store just a few weeks ago and so far, I absolutely love it! It's a flexible business that I work on as much or as little as I want alongside my consulting. My store is international allowing me to have clients in 7 different countries around the world. There is a large focus on personal development which has made me a better businesswoman thanks to a strong supportive network of entrepreneurial leaders. And lastly, we have a pay it forward business model where the more successful your team is, the more successful you are as well.
While I realize this business isn’t for everyone, the freedom and income earning potential is worth exploring if you want more time to focus on your other interests in life whether it’s traveling, staying home with your families, or perhaps even pursuing another career that might not be as lucrative.
