Game Changer Interview: Stephanie Lyon
Name of Your Business
How Does Your Work Enable You to Connect to and Fulfill Your Life Purpose/Passion?
My 16 years with Arbonne is fueled by my commitment to help people be healthier through awareness of what they use in and on their bodies. Arbonne is more than beautiful, clinically proven products – they are a B Corporation committed to empowerment, transparency and sustainability. They ingredient philosophy goes above and beyond, eliminating over 2000 ingredients where the US has banned less than 15. This is so important – our health is dependent on our daily choices and limiting toxins where we can, my goal is to impact as many people as possible! I believe we all want to be confident, fit and vibrant, and Arbonne is my vehicle to do just that, help others with healthy lifestyle solutions for mind, body and skin. I also know that there is no security in our world when it comes to working for others. It is my goal to continue to build people up and show them that they can succeed in this field no matter where they come from, their age, their background. My success come from belief, attitude and commitment. I have reached the Regional Vice President milestone with Arbonne, a measure of success awarded to few.
Who Is Your Ideal Client and Why?
My ideal client is a woman who embraces holistic health and botanical solutions, someone who seeks out clean products and nutrition for their own use and for their families. They generally are informed and know that there are hidden ingredients that are harmful and are looking for a resource and recommendations. Many others are looking for glowing, young looking skin, a healthier mind and a stronger, leaner body, better eating habits as they face fatigue, gut issues, sleep disorders, headaches. A lot of my clients are vegan, have celiac, or sensitivities to what is offered in the US and for the first time have someone to guide them through choices that a customized for them. My expertise is unique as I have been using and helping my Clients, Preferred Clients and Consultants for 16 years. I create regimens and solutions from aging skin, sensitivities, dry skin , low energy, weight loss and clean eating habits that are life changing for their health. I love what I do because the ripple effect of healthy habits are passed on to children and generations, so make them, good ones!
What Unique Offerings Do You Provide?
I will take the time for free consultations and know my products inside and out. Whether is a skincare consultation to find the perfect solution through our AgeWell, BrightenUp, Clear Future or others systems, or going over our clean eating 30 Days to Healthy Living regimen to match their needs, a personal makeup consultation or recommendations for more energy and mind focus, my clients are grateful to have someone who cares to work through all the details. For those that want to turn their passion of health into a business, I am the right person to coach them. I have fully committed to this company because I believe in the philosophy of people and planet over profit, and know that the time is now to take the healthy living lifestyle and entrepreneurial business opportunity to help people flourish. This is not a hobby for me, it is my passion as an entrepreneur in the global online wellness community, making personal connections and building community with likeminded badass women!
Who Was Your Role Model Growing Up? How Did That Person’s Actions Impact You?
My father was my role model. He was kind, intelligent, committed to my brother and myself. He taught us to do our best in school, to be truthful , to work hard and had an amazing sense of humor. He was an amazing cook and taught us how to eat all kinds of foods, limit the fries and soda to next to none, and to work out everyday . And I do, I work out 6-7 days a week . He always taught us good habits and at an early age I realized that we become what do daily. My father was the most honest man that I know, and this has carried through in all that I do.
