I LOVE being a mom and I  LOVE having a business.

Many moms at on time or another ponder the idea of working for an income in addition to working for their families.

I am a HUGE proponent of direct sales businesses because they can blend so well in families and provide income.

After a 14 year successful run as a leader in a company I decided to back to full-time outside of the home employment. That lasted 18 months. You see as our kids get older, they often still need a mom whose work schedule is flexible enough to meld around their ever changing needs.

I jumped back into a new direct sales company, Clever Container, one year ago.

With over 15 years of direct sales leadership experience, I have zeroed in on two key ingredients missing in most consultants’ training:

… Organizing your business

and Branding Yourself …

will set you apart from the crowd.

Organizing the Business of Direct Sales is a book I wrote in 2007 that answers the questions…

Why do I need office hours?

When and where can I hold office hours?

What do I do with all this paper?

When and How should I hire an assistant?

and more.

Since 2007 I have been speaking to women in direct sales about their home offices, business, and helping them create a personalized marketing strategy. I would love to come speak to your group or conduct a conference call! Contact me.

{My book about branding yourself will be released in March}
