I think we had a read-a-thon

Graham and Parker (age4) and their friend Garland (age3 with Autism) reading some awesome book titles from my Usborne book store! We ended up reading books for half of the day!

Featured in this post are:
       Ted and Friends (read along to cd)

Some of these books were Usborne titles that we have owned for quite some time. Others were Usborne titles that arrived with my new consultants kit.  You can read more about that in my post located here, entitled books, books, books. I am really happy with how things are going so far. I already have several recruits and a few sales! I am shocked at how well it is going for me. I did not expect to do well at all. I did badly with Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, and Tupperware.
I rarely made sales and never had any recruits with those three companies. So far Usborne is seriously amazing and very surprising. It makes sense in a way though, I guess when it boils down to it... Your kids need good books for many reasons. However no one actually needs that tube of lipstick, or that blush, or that new piece of stoneware, or that awesome pasta strainer, or that cool set of bowls with matching lids. I don;t know why I ever tried to be a Pampered Chef consultant, or a Tupperware consultant, or a Mary Kay consultant. 

All I did is waste money, time, energy, and fail miserably at all three, despite my efforts.

I am seriously not really even trying and already Usborne books has given me 10x the sucess I ever even fathomed from it. I am glad I went for it. Seriously you can not beat $10 to sign up as a new consultant. It's a win/win situation and you get almost $300 in books and materials to get started, and it is mostly... seriously mostly all books in the box. Not stupid books, but books that are awesome! How flippin' cool is that!?!

Parker's favorite is "That's not my Bear",  we have owned this book for over a year now.

  1. Usborne books were always great, and it's interesting to see how many new books they've added since my kids were little! My kids are grown now so I don't look for children's books. But I love that so many great ones are available. I hope you have great luck with your business! I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page:
