My past 18 years with PartyLite have been filled with I know that the only way to truly accomplish my growth, enjoyment, free trips and earned product, so I chose to become a PartyLite Consultant because the time was right. I had considered going into business goals is to visualize, plan and take action. I believe that I can keep my profits in my pocket and am able for myself every year for the two years prior. I was enticed by the extra paycheque, but was extremely busy that visualization is the key to anyone’s success.

I have learned from my Leader that even the smallest recognition makes New Horizons Region people feel great. It might be a catalogue with a tealight given to them during a personal courtesy call, or a small gift that I know they just ‘needed to have’. How has starting your own PartyLite business changed your life? I checked out a number of different companies What did you think of your first PartyLite Conference this past before starting with PartyLite because I wanted to summer in Red Deer?

The Amaretto Swirl Centerpieces were perfect for the head table and combined with the wedding flowers everyone enjoyed the ambiance! I truly believe this business has so much to offer many families in Canada. And yet I know first-hand that everything isn’t always easy. We have had our fair share of troublesome days to deal with too as I know everyone does in life. Facing difficulties can derail so many people and it’s not easy to stay focused when you don’t feel like it. But I hope one lesson my children will learn from watching me work from home is that no matter what is happening behind the scenes, there is a way to keep moving forward – to refocus and readjust – and to look for the next step and just keep taking one step at a time forward... If I had one piece of advice for Consultants it would be to stay focused on your personal strength in booking Shows – end of story! Doing one show can multiply your business beyond imagination when you put your mind and heart into it properly and go do effective shows. And learning is so key – get out to your local meetings and figure out how to be the best consultant you can possibly be – there is always something new to improveBuilding a smart business about the way we do things because the world just doesn’t stay the same for long!
