I am excited to share more information with you today about our August Member's Only Giveaway Sponsor, Jerri Sargent (and the fun prize she is offering). Jerri is an Independent Consultant & Team Leader with Mary & Martha.
Jerri has been a consultant with Mary & Martha for 7 years now but has been involved in direct sales for over 17 years. Like many of us, she started her own business as a way to make extra income for her family. I enjoyed learning more about Jerri, her company & her tips for success which you can read below.
Q. What was it about your company that made you know you they were the right company for you:
A. Mary & Martha's mission. Our mission is to empowering women to share life...together! We are committed to offering products that help you welcome, serve & Connect. Simply said, to share life! I'd been in direct sales for many years and was never successful. I liked the companies I worked with but was never passionate enough to work through the struggles. We have so much encouragement!
Q. What is your favorite thing about your company/products:
A. I love that we are a Christian company. We can share our faith and our products have scripture on them and can be silent witnesses in homes and offices across the country. I love that our company calls and conferences open or close in prayer. We live out our faith.
Q. Do you have a favorite product or product line you want to tell us about:
A. Our brand NEW category! We now offer personalized canvas and tea towels. They are beautiful and fun! They provide inspiration and meaning to your home or as gifts!
Q. What are you excited about right now when it comes to your business?
A. New product of course is always exciting! Coming back from conference and seeing my team members excited about the future! Several are already planning to earn the next incentive trip with me!
Q. How has being involved in direct sales impacted your life?
A. Direct sales not only provides income, it provides self-development, confidence, courage and amazing relationships. In the case of our business it has also increased my faith!
Q. Do you have a favorite quote that inspires or motivates you?
A. There are so many! But this is the one I gave to my team at National Conference, :"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NIV
Q. What tips for success do you have to share with others in direct sales:
A. Never give up. Write down your goals, make a plan each week. Decide what's important to you. Don't compare yourself to others in direct sales. Learn from those who have achieved what you want to achieve but remember we all have different personalities and circumstances in our lives. Have a mentor or someone you can work with to help you walk through the obstacles.
Q. Do you have any special offers / discount you would like to offer our members this month?
A. We have amazing specials for August since we are launching our new personalized pieces. For anyone who will host a gathering or catalog party in August I will add a special bonus of FREE shipping for the Hostess! This month only, I will offer the Success Club Members 10% their first order! You must call me 417-291-2097 to take advantage of this special (and mention the Success Club).
