Books never go out of style--and parents are always seeking ways to spark a love of reading in their children. As an Usborne Books at Home educational consultant, you can help by selling a variety of award-winning children's books on subjects ranging from history and foreign language to science and nature. The selection of almost 900 educational titles also includes puzzles and games.
While most Usborne consultants do the majority of their business by hosting book parties at home, you can also sell to schools and libraries, or hold fund-raisers or book fairs.
The Usborne Books at Home opportunity can be purchased for as little as $35--the cost of a sample kit containing enrollment paperwork and 10 catalogs you can use to sell books. In addition to the catalog, the minikit ($125) includes 15 books for display at parties, while the base kit ($225) contains 35 to 45 book samples.
Each new consultant has the option to be assigned a supervisor in his or her area for assistance. You also receive an instructional manual and one-on-one training in various selling methods. "Our company satisfies two basic needs most families have: the need for a good educational product in the home and the need for supplemental family income," says Randall White, president and CEO of Usborne.
