Several of my friends have already answered the call for a fundraiser and have organized a holiday shopping event here in Arvada. Since I am a Pampered Chef consultant, I have many direct sales friends who are awesome.
Before kids, I was super into my career and never went to shows or participated in direct sales anything if I could help it. I had a tie dye company for several years and worked my butt off for very little return. I signed up for Pampered Chef on a whim thinking I might earn some free stuff for my kitchen and be out of it. Turned out that I love it. Who knew? It’s the first job that I’ve had that I control, I’m excited about how much I make because I like the “work” part of it, and I get my kitchen totally stocked with awesome stuff. So I won’t try to sell anyone on direct sales, but I will say that it is an area I avoided and knew nothing about that I turned out to really enjoy. These truly are local businesses that give back to the families in your community.
So to get back on track, the event is being held this weekend in Arvada (details below) and the vendors are also online so anyone who is not local can shop that way. You can get your holiday shopping done early, and a percentage of sales from each vendor come back to our family to help with medical bills so your stress free holiday shopping is for a cause. Hooray!
