I stumbled upon this article from the New York Times here. It talks about how in our recession, direct sales companies (like Stampin' Up! who I represent) are welcoming more new representatives than ever. It says that growth in non-recessionary years has, historically, been less than in recessionary years. I find that really interesting (the article is really worth reading)!
I have welcomed more to my group in the first 6 weeks of our new fiscal year (that began July 1) than I did last year in the first 8 months. If it's something that piques your interest just to bring in a little extra income for one bill or a few bills or to function as the support for your hobby, then please contact me! There is also a lot to read in the right column of this blog titled "Pages".
