Newbie here and working at home

Hi everyone,
I'm Laura live in OK with 4 little ones. I've tried Pampered Chef, taking a paper route (would never suggest this to anyone), Mary Kay and now with Arbonne. I chose the last one cause I could not find out anything bad about them anyone and once I tried their stuff I was hooked. LOL I loved Pampered Chef but once I had the stuff or anyone I sold to had the stuff it took forever for them to need anything else again.

DH is in the military so we move often. Had 6moves in 9yrs cause of schools, bases and ships. So I'm joining you all to try and get some ideas on expanding my business with frequent moves. That and just to check out what other moms are doing and if it's working. hehehe

Hi there Laura and welcome!

I'm Ellie and I live in Hawaii, we also have moved a lot in the past so I feel for you. I'm glad you've found a home business that you enjoy. I sell Usborne books and I'm nuts about the books and very happy with my business as well.

My upline supervisor (was originally my super until my direct sponsor made super earlier this year) is also military. She's been with Usborne for 9 years and had over 1300 consultants DIRECTLY under her that she sponsored (not to mention all of the teams under those consultants) she attributes it to being able to come into contact with so many great people through her husband's Navy career. I'm not sure exactly what she does, and it did take her a while to get it all going - I hope you find some great ladies and resources here.

I have found one I like too. I don't have to leave the house now like I did with those. I'm finally just at working AT home now. Just thought we have a lot in common.

Thanks for the welcome.

We had someone from my kids preschool that sold these books and they were awesome. My oldest has a few of the dinosaur books. The kids liked looking for the duck in one set of books but I can't think of the name of it to save my life right now. LOL My three older kids each have a subscription to their own Scholastic set that they get each month. They all love to read the 4 yr old has figured it out on her own. That shocked us but then again she was able to have a conversation with you at 12mo and potty trained herself at 18mo. She's a trip LOL

Hi Kim,
Thank you for the welcome too. What do you do? You can email it if that's not allowed to post it. I'm interested in what other ppl are doing and how they are expanding. We have the most ppl selling what I'm selling in my area compared to the rest of the country so expanding is a little work. But not being from here is helping and the ppl I've meet before getting here is a big plus too.

The find the duckie books are a lot of fun. My oldest keeps 'helping' her little sister find them in all the books. They are found throughout most of the baby, toddler and pre-school books that were written by Stephen Cartwright - the duckie is our main logo (its on the back of my van as well!)

Glad you kids like them.
