Join our Friend-a-palooza Party!

One of my favorite benefits of being a book lady – and perhaps the most unexpected – is building relationships with amazing women! Many of my Usborne teammates, hostesses, and customers have become dear friends, and I’m SO thankful and blessed to have them in my life!

This Thursday, March 16th, our team is having a Facebook ‘business opportunity’ party that celebrates friendship while giving you all the information you’ll need to decide if Usborne Books & More would be a good fit for you and your family. And I’d love for you to join us!


Friend-a-palooza is all day Thursday, 8 am – 8 pm CST, and I’ll be posting fun giveaways and helpful information about the biz.! Since we absolutely don’t want to spam people with notifications, we’ve made this party a private FB event, so we’ll have to be FB friends for you to get an invite. Please click here to find me on FB and send me a request and quick message that you’d like to come to the party. And, if you’d like to unfriend me after the event, my feelings won’t be hurt – promise!

Check out this quick video to learn more about Friend-a-palooza:

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?!

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!


If you’d like to get a little glimpse inside Usborne’s 2016 National Convention, join me over on my Facebook page! I’ll be going LIVE at various times throughout the week, and I’d love to hang out with you!

Join me at Convention

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!

Click here or below to see inside last year’s Convention (please excuse the messiness of this past Convention post – the formatting went wacky when I migrated from Blogspot to WordPress a few months ago.).

See you LIVE very soon over on Facebook, friends!


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!

Here are some questions I frequently get asked about the book business, along with my answers. Please click here to message me on Facebook if you’d like to talk more!

Q. How much does it cost to sign up?

A. Our ‘big kit’ is $125, and our ‘mini kit’ is just $75 (plus tax, free shipping)! 

With the big kit, you get 20 titles and save around $150! The mini kit comes with 10 titles, and you save around $100!


The amazing titles are yours to keep – so there’s absolutely no risk in giving Usborne a try!

The commission you can earn in your first show or two can well exceed your initial investment! Click here to see how I earned $380 in free books and the cost of my kit back in my very first show!

Q. How much do I have to sell a month?

A. We have NO MINIMUMS for our consultants!

It’s true! You don’t have to sell a single thing!

Let me say that one more time…

You don’t have to sell a single thing!

On my team, family always comes first, and Usborne doesn’t have any monthly minimums to add more stress to your life! No one is going to pressure you to do anything – ever! This is YOUR business, friend, and you do what you want with it! I’m here to help you in whatever way I can, but I’ll never push you or pressure you. Not my style.
