"Im up up and away with Usborne"

Since having my 2nd baby,I have been trying of ways for me to stay at home and earn myself a bit of cash.

Via a working from home message board I came across USBORNE BOOKS AT HOME...(UBAH)
I contacted the person who had posted the message and wey hey 2 weeks later Im up and running all for £19..

USAH,is a division of the Usborne Book Publishing company,and It serves the ever rapidly growing market of PARENTS/TEACHERS/PLAY LEADERS who are looking for good quality Books!
Usborne have over 1000 titles in print and are aimed at the Baby market right up to the Teenager market.They also specialise in Books aimed at the key stages(for those who know anything about school)


Well it is a business. And there are many ways you can go about conducting your business..
For £19(until the end of July 2003) I was sent out about 20 Books(all varying in age groups)and all the staionary aids I needed to start selling books,also included in the price is a monthly magazine,which entitles me to special offers and also for incentives to get me more people signed up,I also have the services of my introducer( shes the lady who signed me up) they have a wealth of expereince and have loads of hints a tips on getting started...

So here I am armed with lots of brilliant Books
Im motivated to sell
Ive sent the invites
And the Parties at my house with the view of attracted more likeminded parents to have a few events and not only have a nice social event,but also earn themselves some free Books( and me some money)

Well as an Organisor every book I sell earns me 24% commission
If I recruit someone to join me(but still work for themselves) I also get another 4% of there sales..
I can progress through the ranks and have the chance to earn loads,but for me ,this is not going to make me a milionaire,Its about getting out of the house ,meeting people,chatting about Books,and earning a few pounds..

The other good thing is anyone who Hosts an event,this could be a freind,a member of your family,a nierbour,the local toddler group,the pre school also has the chance of getting free books...
afetr an event when the totals are all added up
the HOST will get at basic 10% of the sales worth of free books.this also rises if they agree to host more events ...
So the opportunities are endless...
This is a business which can make you lots of money(if you want it too)or just enough to buy a few nice treats for yourself...
The really great thing about it is you can put as little or as much as you want to put into it,while my children are small...Its a pocket money business,but who knows in the future

If anyone want more info contact me....
Highly recommended

Just thought I would add a little bit more to my Op...
I had my first event today and after inviting over 20 people(always knowing ony half would turn up)8 people came
and I managed to sell over £100 in books thats a meer £24/£26 for me .Just for 2 hours (work) well chatting ang gossiping at my house..
It was easy
and I have a few more bookings!
