I love direct sales. Over the past forty years I have sold Avon door-to-door (twice), been a Tupperware lady (also twice), demonstrated and taught for two different stitchery companies, been a Creative Memories consultant, and am now happily serving as a Close To My Heart consultant. And oh, yes, I mustn’t forget my stint as a lingerie model for home parties by Jer Marai. As I said, I love direct sales.

So imagine my contentment tonight at my neighbor/friend/in-law’s Jamberry Nails party. Jamberry Nails is a fairly new party-plan company that sells vinyl nail wraps and accessories. I met the consultant earlier this week at Helping One Woman, and discovered then that she would be the demonstrator at tonight’s party. I arrived with my Close To My Heart thermal cup in tow at the home of said neighbor/friend/in-law who has recently become a designer for Origami Owl Jewelry.

A quick inventory around the room made us realize that every adult guest there also had a direct sales business of some sort. There was a sales rep for Miche convertible purses, two Origami Owl designers, me with Close To My Heart, and one gal in the process of getting her “cottage” license for cake baking at home. What a wonderfully creative group of entrepreneurs! The economy as a whole may be struggling, but for us, the future is in our hands.

These days, no matter what your interest, there is a direct sales company making it possible for you to succeed in the marketplace. All it takes is drive, imagination, creativity, and a lot of passion for sharing the fun with others. Party on!
