It still takes a week for me. Don't forget the shipping costs that you have to add to the already high cost of the product. And why is there tax on the shipping costs?

Sister, I am still wondering why my state still taxes groceries and we are one of the poorest states. I don't know. I don't think that is Arbonne's doing. That is a state to state law. It depends where you live. Anything you order you would have to pay the same shipping. It does add up after you add in that shipping. That is why I keep my orders worth it. I order all I need for the month. The more I order, I get more discounts on other products. It really simply comes down to if the the products are worth what you are spending. We make those kind of decisions everyday when we go to the store. It is worth it for me because they have completely changed the state of my skin. I had been going to a dermatologist for years with no significant improvement. Now, I don't have to...so its worth it for me. It may not be for someone else.

Is Arbonne big in Little Rock AR and do you do Arbonne?

Interesting site. I joined Arbonne to understand the competition. I have been with BeautiControl for one year, am transitioning from Corporate America (finance) to be a stay at home mom and am a member of my states CPA Board. What ever company you become a part of, you can set your standards and work from there. I teach my consultants most of whom are either opening Med Spas (former doctors) or supporting the Spa industry to pick a core group of products, find the market and develop it. We use business plans and develop a solid training experience. I have work for Fortune 500 companies for 17 years before becoming a Mom later in life and most companies who sell a product is built on a pyramid, however the Banking industry is regulated more heavily than Direct Sells.

All of you sound very intelligent, I would just advise, develop a business plan for yourself, work you area, write out YOUR values and develop the business within your standards. Since I wanted to understand the competition by joining for a short time, and not working the business, I see some advantages, but I quickly continued building from my core product line with BC. I admire the training at Arbonne but take everything with a grain of salt.

If anyone wants any help with ANY business line, please write. I don't promote MLM, I just develop a professinal business plan so that your values, YOUR mission are sustainable with whatever you choose to do.
Good luck to everyone - great information!

Sometimes it's tough to sort out all the details related to this subject, but I'm positive you'll have no trouble making sense of the information presented. - William B. Doyle, http://www.wbdoyle.com/tsfls/

If I had a great product to introduce, I would definintely go with multi level marketing rather than with retail. With MLM, you have no employees, so no payroll, no medical premiums, no in house stealing, no overhead, or other costs of running a retail company. With MLM, you have distributors, no payroll and such. There is no middle people mangement. When companies have employees and stores sometimes profits go down because of all the extra costs, so the inevitable happens...the quality of the product goes down. This happens because the focus is on showing a profit, so corners are cut. Do you think the retail store you buy your product from really has your interest in mind, or do you think it's more important that they have you as a paying customer? It's true that MLM is not for everyone, most people are better shoppers than entrepeneurs. That doesn't mean all MLM companies are all scams. Alot of them really do have great products, but going retail wasn't the way they wanted to sell them.
