My friend and I joined Arbonne, I joined because I liked the product and wanted the discount, I only purchased what I wanted to use for myself, my family or for gifts. My upline did try to make me buy more products, but I was just not interested in keeping stock. My girlfriend on the other hand is a shopaholic, so you didnt have to convince her too much to buy products. I feel bad for her cuz she did buy a lot. I personally did better than her though in sales because I do not personalize anything, sales is sales to me. to make a long story short, I left Arbonne, simply because I found another business opportunity that was a little easier for me with the opportunity to make a higher commission and more money for the same commission or discount. The price points were higher, so home parties would average about $1000 in sales. Anyway, good luck.
