5 Things I Want You To Know

Here are five things that I want you to know about me and Arbonne, and network marketing in general. Ah I know, another MLM post. You might be thinking stop, we’ve heard enough, but as I do more with Arbonne there are a few things I want to say. Five to be exact.


just because someone else is pushy doesn’t mean we all are

We have all heard horror stories about network marketing people. Whether they’re from Arbonne, Herbalife, Amway, Avon, Pampered Chef, etc., etc. Within every company are people who are not genuine or are just in it for themselves. There are people who won’t take no for answer no matter how many times you’ve told them. Who constantly ask you to join their business when you only want the products, or host a party when you literally have 0 interest in it. There are those people, but not everyone in network marketing is like that. So just because you’ve had a bad run with one person, doesn’t mean you have to be rude to someone else whether they represent the same brand or not. Know that this person could be different and offer you something new, whether that’s a product, a side hustle or simply information.

I don’t want to pressure you

I like sharing about Arbonne because I genuinely like the products. If I’ve reached out to you, then it’s because I see a connection between you and Arbonne. Most of the time, it’s because I see that you value wellness and health as a whole, because you love amazing products, or like fitness and working out. So I think hey maybe she/he would love this skincare or this nutrition. I have something that I love, that I think you might love so I want to share it. Not push it. Just let you know that it exists. Rarely, but sometimes I see that you might like the business side, because you already post about products you love, or because you’ve expressed that you’re looking for side hustle, whether it’s for something to do or an extra stream of income. So, if I’ve talked to you, it’s because I think you might be interested or really good at it. It’s not just because I want money or am trying to hustle random people.

asking doesn’t mean you’re committing

If you show interest or ask questions, it doesn’t mean you’re stuck or obligated to say yes. Whether it’s questions about the products or the business, questions are just questions. You haven’t signed up or paid for anything or said yes. So know that you can and should ask questions if you have them. I want to answer all of your questions and know what you’re thinking. Plus, it’s good to be informed before you say yes or no to anything.

you can say thanks, but no thanks

The worst part is not getting a reply, because then I’m left unsure. Especially when I see people posting or see that they’ve read the messages. I don’t want to send you a million messages or annoy you, but I will follow up if I think there’s a chance that you forgot to reply. This goes for anyone who confronts you about any opportunity or product - if you’re not interested simply say no. Be clear and honest, but polite and kind. So just keep that in mind whenever you hear from anyone in network marketing. Personally, I just want to know your thoughts either way, positive or negative. So if you don’t want anything to do with Arbonne then just tell me, and I will gladly respect your inbox! I’d rather hear a polite no then nothing at all. If I never ask you, then I’ll never know and if you never answer then I’ll still never know!

we can still be friends

Just because you say no to a business or a product, does not mean you’re saying no to a relationship. If you say no I’m not going to hold it against you, take it personally, or be offended. I won’t treat you any differently or be passive-aggressive. I’ll still be Olivia or OC or Liv. I’ll still be your friend or acquaintance or loyal Instagram follower. Hopefully, you’ll still be my friend too, because believe it or not, we can still have a relationship and carry a normal conversation without Arbonne coming up if you don’t want it to. I love ya and that wouldn’t change!

love oc
