Hi, I grew up with Usborne books in the UK, moved to Germany in 1999. Being a bilingual Mum, Usborne gives me instant access to great books and a flexible, fun business, doing something worthwhile supplying (and giving) local families and schools with gorgeous books.
We went back home to England, I rediscovered Usborne and before I knew it I was on the team. I love it, there is no pressure and the products are a pleasure to sell.
MY TOP TIP - Schools, kindergartens and libraries can get lots of free books if they do sponsored reading event to promote reading. Book Fairs are great too - librarians love all the free books!
