I live in Phoenix, Arizona with my husband and our dog, Rovie. Rovie is short for здоровый, which in Russian means 'healthy'. We named him that because when he showed up on our porch, he was sick. He got well and stayed. Between my husband and I, we have five children (and three children-in-law); yours, mine and ours. They are scattered between Phoenix, Las Vegas and Iowa. Between these beautiful blended families, we boast eleven grandchildren and three great grandchildren. (I can't believe it!) Our daughter and her husband work in this business with us here in Phoenix. It is becoming a family business.
I first used these products 25 years ago in New Mexico. I loved the products then because they did not contain chemicals, and were based on melaleuca (tea tree) oil and I love them for the same reason today. Of course, there were not nearly as many products then as there are today.
Today I educate people about the value of these wonderful products and for those who wish to know, share how they too, can earn an income from home. These are safe, green and eco-friendly products for every member of the family. In addition to making my home a safer, healthier home, they are the basis for my 'work from the luxury of my own home' business. I am continuously working to provide good service to my members. I feel very privileged to be able to help provide an income for my family in this way.
I have regular workshops that cover topics such as essential oils and all aspects of health and wellness, including physical health, mental and emotional health, financial health and natural and spiritual health. I cover many subjects including toxic chemicals, vitamins and minerals, and cosmetics. I manage my own health and wellness website, RobardsHealthyLifestyles.com.
I have a small paralegal/mobile document real estate signing business, from which I am semi-retired. I help people get their loan documents signed. I have been in the legal/real estate business for over 40 years. I began working with my Dad (an attorney) in Las Vegas, and worked for him for 10 years which started my career as a legal secretary/paralegal.
I have been doing 'extra' acting in the past few years as a hobby. (One of many hobbies) I have been able to share with others working in the entertainment business information about these products and ways to cope with some of the health and other challenges they are facing in their work, such as difficulty sleeping due to long and late hours, tummy distress due to 'on the set food', anxiety due to being away from home, and more. Essential oils are a favorite among my entertainment friends. It has become my niche.
I have been involved for many years in a volunteer work that benefits the community and is dear to my heart. We help people with many issues, including daily living skills, coping with death, anxiety, suffering, and much more. My husband and I studied the Russian language for 8 years to help the Russian speaking community here in Phoenix, and now we are learning Swahili and working with Swahili speaking folks. I am thankful that income from our business allows me to continue this work with my husband.
