Talking the talk is important, but even more so is walking the walk. That’s the key message from this week’s guest, Arbonne Executive National Vice President Miranda Burcham.
Along with that, she’s a fitness pro, a full-time mother of five who does international mission work, and she teaches classes at a local women’s recovery center. With the support of her fitness fans and the Arbonne community, she partnered with Jean Mary Berdy, founder of the boys’ home Jeremiah’s House in Haiti, to financially back the community-centered project.
In all of her endeavors, she’s had her children by her side. They’ve seen her succeed and fall behind and they’ve been with her through her ups and downs. Burcham says she and her husband, Bubba, have made a point of modeling commitment and work ethic for their kids, in order to teach by example how to lead a compassionate life dedicated to helping others.
That practice is also reflected in her career with Arbonne, where she says she used her team-building skills to find successful, positive people to partner with and create a work environment primed for success.
