Before we had children, when I had “nothing” but a husband, a full-time teaching job, and a home to care for, the scrapbooking bug bit and I spent about 5 years in direct sales funding my habit. Fast forward a child or two and a move to Tiny Town, where our lifestyle became very community and school centered (read: we are gone a lot in the evenings!) and something had to give. For our sanity, it was the scrapbooking.
While my direct sales stint didn’t last all that long, I do know several women who are very successful with various sales opportunities. One I hadn’t heard of until recently, though, was NOVICA Live.
NOVICA is one of the leading fair trade artisan websites. We work with National Geographic to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market. We have thousands of top fair trade corporate gifts and home decor items on our website.
When I was contacted by NOVICA, I honestly had never heard of the business. Now? I’m in love. Not only am I impressed with their desire to promote fair trade buying, but the products that I ordered were over the top beautiful!
I went with the turquoise dangly earrings from Turkey and this glass earring/necklace set from Mexico.
I can’t say enough about how gorgeous and well-made these pieces are. Not only that, but the packaging is incredible. I truly felt as if I was opening a rare and precious gift. My daughter asked if she could keep the box the earrings came in!
I know that some of you are looking for a way to supplement the family income as a stay at home mom. NOVICA Live may or may not be for you, but I wanted you to know about it since it’s so unique. I know people who sell candles, wickless candles, food, scrapbooking supplies, jewelry, makeup, kitchen tools and such. I don’t know anyone anywhere who is a distributor for this new business. Sometimes being the first is a great advantage!
For our consultants, getting in early is a big opportunity in direct sales. They’ll be able to make some good money and support artisans worldwide. We’re expanding across the country right now and signing up new consultants every week.
The starter kits are only $199 and have over $400 worth of samples and $150 in business materials. We have a lot of promotions going on for our early consultants, including anyone that becomes a Director this year will go to Bali next year.
Again, just something to think about and pray about. Don’t do anything rash, but NOVICA Live might be a great fit for some of you! (If it is, will you please let them know that I sent you?)
Is anyone interested in a little NOVICA shopping money? Trust me. The answer is Yes, you are! I’ve got a $75 shopping credit for one of my readers!
