Hi Everyone. Just wanted to let you know that we consultants have once again received some free advertising. The June 2005 issue of "all you" has a short feature on home based businesses. The article is found on pages 77 and 78. The title is "I support my family selling products from home!"

The article centers on Gina Raimondi who is a TupperWare consultant and there is a short piece on Kathy Yellets (Bartlesville Oklahoma) who is a Pampered Chef executive director. To the side of the article is a list of direct-sales coompanies. They have listed Longaberger, The Pampered Chef, Mary Kay, Southern Living at Home and PartyLite with each ones HO website. There is also a piece on pyramid schemes. In this piece they tell you not to spend more than $75.00 on your sales kit and entrance fee combined. We are a little above that, but they gave us some nice advertising.

I purchased my copy of "all you" at Wal Mart. It only costs $1.47.

I like to keep these articles in my bag with my catalogs to show people what a great company we have.

Thanksthanks for the info on the article - I've never heard of that magazine but I'll look for it. Ya know, technically we are under that $75 mark. By hosting first you can get the kit for $70 or $50. That could be a great selling point for the opportunity because when it says you shouldn't spend more than $75 you can immediately respond to the fact that our hosts don't! :D
Hi Shawnna,Thanks for sharing this information with us! It's always great to see direct-sales companies getting some recognition and positive publicity. I'm glad to hear that your company was included in the article. I definitely agree that keeping articles like this in your bag with your catalogs is a great way to show potential customers the legitimacy and success of your business. It's also a great conversation starter and can help you connect with others who may be interested in joining your company. I'll have to check out the June 2005 issue of "all you" and read the article for myself. Thanks again for sharing and congratulations on the free advertising! Keep up the great work.
