Say ‘Yes’ to Unconventional Success

by | Oct 11, 2023 | Member Spotlights | 0 comments

Have you ever wondered if you’re doing the right thing? Not just as opposed to the “wrong” thing—but do you ever feel like you are wasting your time, or at a dead end?

If so, there’s good news—it’s not too late to change.

In today’s meeting, member Nikki Calloway of Arbonne Skincare and Cosmetics shared more of her personal career and life story—a path from graphic design to plant management to more personal fulfillment—with many highs & lows that we in the room could identify with—and with an uplifting ‘unfinished’ end.

After finding severe burnout in a fun, but fast-paced deadline-driven graphics career she’d started in, she had to do change some things up. Moving roles and companies from high excitement to more stability was her first move, and it alleviated much of her acute stress and gave her more time. But she wanted more.

As someone who’d always participated in activities and held part time jobs in her youth, she needed a new outlet to pour energy and emotion into, and to find growth. Thankfully, it was right around this time that the field hockey coaching and Arbonne opportunities both answered—quickly and in that order.

Both were leaps in their own right—and to both—Nikki said, “Yes.” Those yesses also brought her to our group in 2017 by way of fellow coach and group member Tracey Doyle.

One state championship and much Arbonne success later—leaving much out—those two “Yes”s have hugely-shaped Nikki’s current life. From this point, her pace and trajectory have given her the confidence and motivation to strive for even more.

In her “stable” job over this time—through competency, acquisition, and some happenstance—she had actually risen to manage a print supply plant. Though it was a great position to achieve, it brought with it much of the burnout that tainted her early career.

This time however, with skills acquired in her time with Arbonne, and through connections made in Border 2 Border; she was able to parlay herself into a directing role much more in line with her skill and passion.

On this high note, she closed with some of her dreams for the next 5 years. They were wonderful and personal and we’ll keep them with those of us who were in the room.
