Is Usborne Books & More the Right Direct Sales Company For You?

When I started Usborne in 2014, I didn’t ‘need’ the money.

I joined so I could save money for a family vacation to Disney World, not to make any kind of real income.

Fast forward almost 3 years.

Now, Usborne is paying for my daughter’s medical bills and multiple therapies. Anna has Gorlin Syndrome, a very rare condition, and my Usborne money is helping us get her the help she needs!


Anna got to meet her favorite princess on our Disney trip!

I’m SO thankful that God led me to this business when He did! When we needed the money, my Usborne business was already up and going, so it was there. 

We just never know what life will throw our way.  If you’ve been thinking about joining a direct sales company, take a look at this quick video before you take the plunge. With so many great options for us out there, find out why Usborne Books & More might be the best fit for you! Click here or watch below:

But wait!

Aren’t all these businesses just pyramid schemes and scams?!

Click here or watch below to find out: (turn your volume up for this one – whoopsie!)

Don’t have a lot of extra money around? I hear ya, friend, and I’m happy to share with you the absolutely cheapest way to give Usborne a try! Click here or watch below:

Getting Ready for the Usborne National Convention!

Oh, friends, to say I’m excited would be a GROSS understatement!

This has been an AMAZING year for Usborne and for my INCREDIBLE team, and I just can’t wait to celebrate it all in just a few days!

Our Convention attendance is estimated to double (!!), and we’ve been moved into the ARENA for our general sessions. Crazy! I know our Home Office has lots of fun and surprises in store for us (and, oh yeah, some training, too!), and our next incentive trip will finally be revealed! Eeeek! Click here or below to see our last trip destination – Ireland!

I still have lots of odds and ends to tidy up before I leave Wednesday morning, including spending time with my sweet family. I’m writing each girl a special note to open every morning I’m gone (trying to wrack up the good mommy points), so I should hop off here and get started!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit, and I hope you’ll join me LIVE on my Facebook page this Wed. – Sun. as we go inside Usborne’s National Convention 2016!

Why are Usborne Books so Special?

You KNOW I love the books, but let’s see if we can answer the question…

What makes Usborne so special?

Science Dictionary pin

Here are a few key features of the Usborne books that I enjoy:

  • high picture-to-text ratio – lots of pictures integrated into the text make the books less intimidating to reluctant readers!
  • double-page spreads – most of our non-fiction books have these, which draw my girls into the books. They can put the book on the floor, lay down and prop up on their elbows, and get lost in the magic of the book!

Here’s an example of the double-page spread, bite-sized chunks of knowledge, internet-references, AND flaps in our Lift-the-Flap Questions and Answers.

  • bite-sized chunks of knowledge – you’ll hear me say this a lot in my videos. The information is presented in quick ‘bites,’ which appeals to every reader, especially those with attention-deficit concerns.
  • flaps and slots – many of our books are very ‘hands on’ and appeal to tactile learners.
  • cut-away illustrations – entice our curiosity (read as not boring!).
  • internet-links – safe websites that correlate directly to the topics (time-savers!). Usborne was the very-first publisher to include researched and recommended websites with their books. Click here to take a look!
  • award-winning – our books have been weighed and measured by the best-of-the-best in the publishing world, and we’ve come out on top again and again. I am proud to help get these books into the hands of children!

Mystery PROM QUEEN Party!

I celebrated my 2-year anniversary with Usborne last week (crazy!); let’s PARTY! And since Prom season is just beginning, why not live it up with this super-cool and unique theme for a mystery hostess Facebook party?!

A mystery hostess party is when the hostess rewards are given to the winner of the night – in this case, our Prom Queen. We’ll start the Prom Queen prize at $200 in free books! Depending on the amount of orders, the prize could go higher (more orders = more rewards). My last mystery hostess winner ended up with $400 in free Usborne books! Say whaaaa??!! Yep!
