“I love to see the transformation of my clients and seeing them go from feeling not great to feeling fabulous.”
Chemical-free, cruelty-free and environmentally friendly products and supplements are important to Tanya Upton, an Independent Consultant for Arbonne. Tanya has always lived a healthy lifestyle, but it was after she came across Arbonne’s 30 Days to Healthy Living Program that she truly felt healthy. Now, she is eager to share her knowledge with her clients.
As a business committed to sustainability, Arbonne embraces a holistic approach to beauty, health and wellbeing. Products center on nutrition, skincare, body care, makeup, and hair care. Additionally they are all vegan, cruelty-free and formulated without gluten.
Tanya works closely with her clients in choosing the right products to create a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. When paired with a program, such as the one she participated in, mental health and gut-related health issues can be diminished. Seeing her clients’ transformation to feeling fabulous is one of Tanya’s favorite parts about being an Independent Consultant.
In the near future, Tanya hopes to get her program and products out to an even wider audience. She would also like to have consistent and repeat clientele and sales. But in the meantime, she will continue following the Show Up, Speak Up, and Lift Up moves.
Who’s your favourite entrepreneur and why?
Olivia Newton John because she is passionate and driven. I like who she is and what she stands for. She is an advocate for health awareness and health products. Olivia is an activist for environmental and animal rights issue. This resonates with me as the products I sell are cruelty free and chemical free and environmentally friendly (sustainably sourced)
Why did you start your business and what gave you the idea?
I started my business as I know there are many people out there suffering from mental health and gut related health issues. I am also very aware there are many products on the market that contain harmful chemicals that can play havoc with our bodies and I wanted to be able to offer products and supplements that were chemical free cruelty free and environmentally friendly. I had always lived a healthy lifestyle but never felt that well in myself it was until I came across Arbonne’s 30 days to healthy living program and it literally changed my life. I was blown away with the results I had gotten from the program. I had shocking gut related problems which now have diminished since taking the right supplements together with the program.
