Seattle's Best

Seattle may be the focal point of the Pacific Northwest, but after the FC5 truck rolled in to Bellevue...we instantly knew what everyone came to see: Us, of course. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the giant white truck with models on the trailer, FC5 products, and a phenomenal speaker named Rita Davenport. Wink, wink.

We set up the “Arbonne FC5 shop” at the Meydenbauer Center, where the event was held. It's a great venue; very spacious and nice, perfect for FC5 booths. We had a different set up than usual, with the product and opportunity displays set up behind the presentation area. No, kidding, the room was that big! If you remember being at one of our events, you know this is uncommon.

Jennifer Landes was the city coordinator. Jill Ellis and Dianne Partee spoke at 6 and Rita went on at 8. Our volunteers were more than eager to help and were such a great group—it seems we say this all the time, but the volunteers are amazing! Some even volunteered at multiple locations! It's incredible that they all take time out of their busy schedules to come learn about FC5 and help run the show. As expected, the FC5 store was buzzing all night long!

Our photographer, Jon was there taking lots of photos and video. Home Office staff were also in attendance. Stuart emceed and Greg Chambers got everyone up to speed on FC5. Carol Hukari was also on-site along with John Darraugh from Canada.

A couple of NVPs joined us from Canada, too. You should have seen the check-in line at 4! Wow! Arbonne sure knows how to throw an FC5 party. We had to add volunteers to our already full list, just to keep up.

As expected, we had a full house and had to bring in extra chairs. There were even many guests who joined us just for the evening to experience Arbonne for the first time. It's great to see how excited they are about this life-changing opportunity. One Consultant sent her Dad to come see the event, even though she was attending the Fresno event.

And despite the stereotype of endless rain, it was so sunny while we were there. So beautiful. We got to explore Pike Place Market, take a ferry to Bremerton and Bainbridge Island, crane our necks to see the Space Needle, and visit the underground tours and the Piroshky Russian Bakery.

There's one more event left (well, two if we count NTC—and I fully expect you to be there!). It's kind of bittersweet to be at the end. We've seen so much, and yet...there's still so much to see. NTC will be the perfect grand finale to this breakthrough Road Tour. See you there!

Fresno, we saved the best for last. You ready?

Thank you so much for stopping by our city. I had a great time volunteering and seeing Arbonne in action.

Well, it's about time the roof finally caved in at Arbonne. I knew this would happen with the way the company was run. They turned the other way when pyramids were built, people like me were taken advantage of and profits soared.

But greed and deception caught up with Arbonne and its former owners, Harvest Partners. Despite countless people like me, now without a husband but with a garage full of RE9, the roof caved in. Management encouraged frontloading, and I wonder how many people it affected like me. Management didn't seem to mind when my upline told me I needed to buy in for $2,500. I guess karma finally caught up with these guys, and that's why they're out.

My NVP told me earlier this week that everything is great, that Arbonne is on its way to $2 billion. Really? I guess the reason the banks took over the company and Harvest is out is because the company is about to experience growth? I'm sure Harvest left it for dead for some reason other than what my NVP is telling me. Surely they had a reason to hang on to a company that's really on its way to $2 billion.

On Wednesday, Arbonne posted this on their website, but then took it down the same day!


Doesn't sound like a company headed for $2 billion. Sounds like a company salvaging the scraps, begging to keep people around while they pull cash out one last time.

Well, sorry Arbonne. Your PIN number is no longer valid at my ATM. You fooled me once. Shame on you.
