It took me longer than it should have to join Usborne Books and More as a consultant. I have to confess, and most people who know me already know this, I love to read. I’ve always loved to read. I was that kid who had more books in my suitcase when we went on trips than anything else. I’m still like that, I’d rather bring two extra books than run out of books to read, the horror!
I had been in direct sales before with a jewelry company that no longer does direct sales, but I did it on a whim and wasn’t passionate about the product. Don’t get me wrong, the jewelry is beautiful and I still wear it, but it didn’t come naturally to me. I also started traveling for work shortly after I had signed up to be a consultant and just couldn’t make the time for both. I used my discount for a while and then let my time run out.
I Discovered Usborne
Fast forward a few years and my life had changed a bit, a husband and two kids were added to the picture and then I was invited to a few Usborne parties. Wow, right up my alley, I was a perfect customer. I bought some books and we really enjoyed them! A few of our first books were Baby’s Very First Noisy Nursery Rhymes and Baby’s Very First Slide and See Under the Sea. We now have every Slide and See book available, and our Nursery Rhymes book is falling apart. I’m about to replace it for 50% of the cost, something which you can always do with Usborne books!
I attended a party in December 2016 and I won the prize in a party of a free book and was told I could get a free book OR….get $20 additional free books if I hosted a party. Um, hello, $20 more in free books? That is music to a book addicts ears. So, of course, I took her up on that. My party was successful, I got a LOT of free and half priced books, it was fantastic. But my consultant NEVER ASKED ME IF I WANTED TO JOIN! She gave me some information after the party because I asked a lot of questions, but never followed up.
I Finally Decided to Become a Consultant
I did some research and finally decided I would join to get the discount and to see how successful I could be with it. As a present to myself, I purchased the kit the night of my birthday. I went with the larger kit because of course, it came with more books!
Fast forward 9 months and I have made some wonderful friendships, some through my team and some just throughout Usborne! I’ve made some extra money to help our family. I’ve bought a lot of new books at a great discount, some for my kids and some for gifts. I’ve also learned so much about business, leadership, social media, and what I am capable of.
