Heidi Thomas, Independent Usborne Organiser

September new titles

Welcome to The Book Balloon

I'm Heidi and I'm based in Milton Keynes. I joined Usborne Books in October 2004 to give me something that allowed me to be me, but also meant I could be the stay at home Mum I wanted to be to my children who were then 3 and 1 years old. About Me

I now have a job that I love and a thriving business, that is still growing!  I've been on some amazing trips, courtesy of Usborne, and made some truly great friends.

With over 20 years experience in teaching and training, my favourite part of my job, is supporting others to grow and develop their skills, self confidence, and their businesses. It really is very rewarding!

Thinking of becoming an Organiser?

Usborne really couldn't be more flexible. What does it involve?

No targets, just great incentives, low start up cost, the chance to be your own boss, but still receive 121 support, training and coaching to achieve what you want to achieve.

Calling all Schools and Nurseries.
