I joined Usborne Books & More in 2002 when my son was 18 months old. I was looking for a way to quit my part time job at a dance studio and be home with my son. A friend of mine went to a party and told me about these great books and the Usborne opportunity.
I have been a book-lover all my life. My mom was a librarian and my childhood home was filled with books. I had many books already for my son and we enjoyed reading together. However, I had never heard of Usborne Books.
When I saw the books, I was so impressed by the colors, textures, and quality of them. I knew I wanted a lot of these books for my family, so I decided to try out the business. I figured if it didn’t work for me and my family, I would still get a lot of great books for my son.
A couple of my friends agreed to host a party to help me get started and I haven’t run out of business yet! People that I meet LOVE Usborne Books as much as I do and many of them haven’t heard of our company either. Selling these books has been easy and fun!
It has been so wonderful to share these amazing books with adults and children, and even more fulfilling to share the opportunity for others to join my team and have a business like I have, whether it is for extra income, full-time income to replace another job, an outlet to be with adults, or just for a discount on some great, educational books for their families.
Now, 5 years later I still love my Usborne Books & More business. I have a terrific team of about 250 people all over the United States and we are National Award Winners! I had no idea how much I would enjoy the recognition and support I have received with Usborne Books & More. From receiving awards, to earning bonuses and trips, to just getting flowers from my mentor, this has been and incredible experience.
I now have 2 sons and I love sharing a great library of books with them, and also sharing a home-based business. They are learning about motivation, confidence, and fun from their mother. This business has greatly improved my marriage as well. It has given me something to be proud of outside of being a wife and mother and my income is contributing greatly to our family – yet I still just work part time and get to be home with my sons.
