Bekah's Bright New Venture

Hey, there family & friends!

Just wanted to share with you what I'm up to these days!

I just completed my 2nd year here at theJob* in downtown Minneapolis and still love the challenge of the job and the fact that I live near 2 out of 3 sisters, plus my niece and nephews. Oh, and of course the 2 B-I-L's (brother-in-laws).

Due to the economy, my job (and maybe yours?) was affected by a reduction of both pay and hours beginning April 1st. To offset the financial reduction and keep up with my previously set goals, I applied for a few local part-time jobs when I found out in March, but had no success. Around that time I received an invite to a PartyLite show with a friend from church. I had already been tossing around the idea of selling Pampered Chef, Tastefully Simple, or something similar so I decided to go the party to find out about selling PartyLite.

So the party was fun, I liked the products I saw, and then I found out that it would cost me NOTHING to start selling. I had been sure that the starter kit would cost something, but was glad to learn that the I could receive $500 in product for hosting a starter show ($350 kit plus $150 in product credit).

It really was easy. I invited all the (local) people I could think of (60!!) and had an average turn out (13!). I reached the sales goal ($350) with the starter show orders and earned my starter kit for FREE.

With all the people I had invited to my starter show who couldn't make it and with orders from people at work, I was able to "host" another show just through catalog orders! This helped me out a lot b/c they ask that you have 6 shows in your first 2 months. Now I've booked the remaining 5 shows and can't wait to show people all the candle stuff I got for FREE!

Last Tuesday I went to my first PartyLite team meeting and got more free candles and PL logo stuff! I had fun while learning a lot! Somethings I learned and want to share...

May God be gracious to you and bless you and make his face to shine upon you. Ps 67:1
