This experience has given me a new found confidence. I absolutely love the products that the company has to offer and I feel they are really trying to make a positive difference in the everyday lives of people. The company has also helped me along the way with wonderful training opportunities to better my skills as a consultant.Kaley Brown
I have really enjoyed and hope to continue growing my direct selling business as there are so many great women involved and it truly is an honour to say that I am a part of their team.Kaitlin Lake
Working for a direct selling company has allowed my mom to be home with me and my siblings. Since she was working non-traditional hours, I was able to participate in many after school activities as school budget cuts had eliminated late buses. I was able to see value of hard work as I watched my mom build a business in direct sales from the ground up. Through the experiences and connections my mom has made, I have been fortunate enough to participate in many personal development activities.Kelly Owen
My mother’s involvement in direct selling allowed me to grow and develop in a family environment where ambition and determination were encouraged daily. My mother’s work as a direct sales consultant also made me aware of how fortunate it is to be your own boss. I realized that the autonomy and the personal and professional fulfillment derived from working in independent sales are great advantages.Marisabelle Plante
