2013 is a brand new year, full of new possibilities and big potential. What are you doing to save some money this year? For many of my friends, becoming a consultant for one of the many home-based businesses out there has been life-changing. I’m not talking about an extra $20 a month either. I have several friends who are very very successful in the home-party-business market, and for each of them it comes down to a combination of a product they love and their social and sales skills.
My friend Cora is a Tupperware Two Star Director, which means that in addition to her own business she has a team of women who work together to help each other achieve their sales goals. I’ve said before that Cora is a powerhouse. Not only has she earned several trips to places like Disney World and New Orleans through Tupperware, she’s also earned herself a Mustang in 2012! Because she’s such a phenom, she convinced me to try Tupperware after years of rejecting the product. I thought I could buy the same thing in stores for less. I was wrong. Yes, you can buy similar products (plastic bowls for example) in retail stores but they’re not Tupperware quality and in the end, you’re left with cheap plastic bowls that you’ll replace in 12 months.
I hosted a party through Cora and earned a lovely collection of Tupperware products. Then, she convinced me why signing up as a consultant for $110 was a good idea, and I did that too (see, I told you she was a powerhouse!) With the New Business Kit you get everything in the photo above (click here for a full list of contents) which includes the Quick Chef Pro, 2 FridgeSmarts, 2 Freezer Mates, the awesome Tupperware Can Opener (seriously, you’ll never go back) and more. The total value of everything in the New Business Kit is $440!
With my brand new products and consultant status, it was entirely up to me to decide what I wanted to do. Many people sign up just to get the awesome New Business Kit at a discount and then to continue using the 25% discount on all products. If you don’t achieve the minimum sales needed to stay active, your consultant status will expire after three months. If, however, like me you end up buying so much Tupperware at such a steep discount (new products are also available for a ridiculous price for consultants, since they need them to use for shows and to show their friends and families!) you can actually maintain your consultant status longer from your own purchases (counted towards your personal sales) and that of your friends and family.
While some sign up for that purpose alone (my consultant status is gone and I’m thrilled with my pantry full of Tupperware), many others realize once signing up that Tupperware may be just the thing they need to make a change in their life. A few people I know sell it casually to family and friends – a party here and there – and have a nice discount to use and side income for splurging on a shopping trip. Others have a side-business and do a few parties a month. And then there are others like my friend Cora who quit her full time job at a university so she could stay home with her two kids, sell Tupperware full time and – oh yeah – earn trips to Disney World and a Ford Mustang.
So what about you? Has this sparked any ideas? Have you been wanting to try Tupperware or host a party? While Cora is based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and would gladly travel within the province to host a party at your location (email Cora here), she also has consultants on her team all across Canada and would happily refer you to a team member or talk to you about signing up as one yourself. Believe me – with the guidance of this powerhouse, the potential is there to do exactly what she is doing.
In the meantime, Cora and I came up with a great idea for a giveaway for my Canadian readers…
One of my Canadian readers is going to win a Tupperware New Business Kit (valued at $440!) This means you also get the consultant title and discount for 3 months on all Tupperware products! What you do after that point is up to you – create your own home business with Tupperware or simply appreciate a brand new collection of Tupperware products for yourself and your friends!
