We’re in week 3 of our Money Monday series, featuring some fantastic business opportunities that allow you to make extra income while working from home. This week we chatted with Julia Baxter from Arbonne.
Tell us about your business, and how you got started with the company.
Once a burnt out employee of some of the world’s largest companies, I craved time freedom and financial independence, and saw self-employment as my way out of the rat race. I became a marketing consultant and though I love what I do, my income was defined by the hours I worked. I was maxed out — Something was broken!
A close friend and successful music producer introduced me to Arbonne. After 3 days using the incredible anti-aging line, and learning some staggering info about personal care products and industry, I was ready to switch products. Then she asked me a life-altering question:
“If you keep doing what you’re doing now, will you be where you want to be?”. My answer was “No!”.
The concept: My monthly spend on everyday skincare, shampoo, diaper cream, makeup, etc. was literally going down the drain, but could easily become an income:
- Stop buying harmful products from retailers who don’t pay you
- Redirect that same spend to purchase pure, safe and beneficial products at a wholesale discount from yourself and
- Show others how to do the same
What? I could get PAID for bathing? I was ALREADY bathing and knew others who did too!
Two years later, this business is a total blessing and fits into the nooks and crannies of my busy life. It has replaced my full time marketing income, connected me with a team of stellar people, and I feel great about what goes down the drain! In addition to great compensation, the professional and personal development, bonuses, incentives and rewards are endless.
What are some of your favourite products?
RE9 Advanced Anti-Aging
Love this! Each product delivers amazing results, and a little goes a long way.
The vitamin-rich makeup primer visually diminishes fine lines and pores, absorbs shine all day, creating a flawless canvas with or without makeup.

Mom Favourites – especially the Herbal Diaper Rash Cream – a light, water-repelling ointment that gently relieves baby from sore, dry, chapped skin. Excellent for grown up skin too!
Arbonne Essentials Chocolate Vitamin/Mineral Shake
This yummy shake contains 20 essential vitamins and minerals and 20g of vegan protein. Fast and nutritious for people on the go.
No petro-chemicals allowed! 24hrs of lasting hydration, with a delicious natural aroma of sea botanicals.
Why is your company a good fit for moms looking to earn an income from home?
Arbonne fits in around your life — not the other way around. Choose who you work with, set your own hours, determine your pay cheque, and have more time for what’s important to you. Many consultants start during their maternity leave, some decide not to return to work, and some still have other businesses or careers.
Moms are natural educators who want to feel good about products they use, and love to share things they believe in…that’s this business in a nutshell.
If you’re interested in a healthy, balanced life, building for the future, empowering others, and being rewarded beyond belief, let’s chat.
