Most of my life, my dream has been to follow in my dad’s footsteps and be the owner of a retail shop. I was the kid who was always selling something. My 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Clark, taught me the word entrepreneur. I am an entrepreneur! However, owning a retail store was not what I imagined it would be. I missed spending time with my kids. It was frustrating to me how much time and effort I had to put into my business just to break even and it was hard to see my friends and family shop other stores for stuff I had in stock. I thought I wanted to do what my dad does, but after giving it a try, I realized owning a brick and mortar store isn’t really what I want to do with my life. My dad is a smart businessman and he thrives on taking risks. I’ve always admired that risk taking personality trait, but my retail store endeavor has taught me I’m happiest with more structure and security.
My experience with Mama’s Emporium gave me the confidence to reach out to people I don’t know to tell them about products I know they will love. So many wonderful mamas have come into my life through Mama’s Emporium. I’ve always been a homebody, so it’s been a blessing to have people show up at my doorstep on an almost daily basis. I love helping people. I will forever be a fan of cloth diapering. I enjoy being the expert people go to for advice, but explaining cloth diapers is very time consuming and there hundreds of other wonderful products that don’t take nearly as much time or effort to sell.
Of the many career opportunities I’ve tried in the past, my favorite was an internship as a resource specialist. I like having answers to people’s questions and being able to connect people with solutions to problems. Through that internship, I learned how important networking and social organization are to a community. I thrive on connecting with people. Blogging and social media marketing were my favorite parts of owning Mama’s Emporium. While writing a blog series about the various pros and cons of direct sales/home party businesses, I realized being a Tupperware lady is my dream job!
With Tupperware I can be a business owner without having to carry a store full of inventory or put thought into what should go on sale next. I can be a consultant (person who provides professional or expert advice in a particular area for gain or compensation as means of lively hood), and get paid for doing the things I loved most about owning Mama’s Emporium.
I am excited about what Tupperware has to offer, and hopefully I can share my excitement with you!
Please support me in this next chapter of my life by introducing me to people you think might like the products I have to offer.
