So I joined up! I started doing home shows (there were no such things as "Facebook Parties," or even Facebook--at least it wasn't popular--back then, worked with schools and libraries, did booth events, and made a great income (at least $100/week) as far as helping our my family with bills and extracurricular things.
I promoted to Supervisor about a year later, and made even more.
Then, we decided to adopt a baby with Down syndrome. We wanted to adopt a child that would really NEED a home, and that wasn't "wanted" by the majority. He has been our little bundle (born in March of '08) of joy ever since.
However, I KNEW that I needed to take time off to care for him. So, I backed out of being an Usborne Books & More consultant. Little did I know how much I would miss it!
Now, 6 years later, in November of 2016, I felt I had the time, and definitely the desire, to take it on again. I am SO glad I did! I'm building my team, making at least $100/week again, making great friends...and oh the books! How I missed them. I'm also enjoying the blessing of blessing OTHERS with free books...including those in poverty.
Yes, I'm still homeschooling; and yes, I'm still a busy mom. However, I can work this business when I can and want (there are NO sales quota's), and I know how much I can handle on my "plate" and when to say "no." I live a very productive and blessed life.
Do you love books? Do you have a passion for blessing others and getting books into the hands of children and away from so much of the "electronics" (not that anything is wrong with those in moderation...but reading more and more lately...electronics are addictive. (This will say that you can't watch it, but just click on the blue "Vimeo" word, and you can. ;)
Yes, this is possible...no matter how busy you are. You may have to let go of some of the "But I'd have to give up ____________" things that you are doing that, if you think about it, are a waste of time (I had to...there were a few)...but yes, you can DO this. If not with Usborne, follow YOUR passion.
