Hello! I am a mum to two book-mad daughters; Phoebe who is nearly 4 and 'Neep' who is almost 2. I could never have been a stay-at-home mum without working part-time as well. As much as I LOVE to play with my girls, I also need to work to feel validated and to retain my own identity.
I joined Usborne Books at Home in October 2017 and created my Pop-Up Bookshop business to fit around MY schedule and, ultimately, benefit MY family and MY local community - it really is the perfect job to suit a busy mum!
I service Bournemouth & Poole promoting and selling our award-winning Usborne children's books - there are limitless avenues, it is such an exciting and varied job. Apart from the obvious financial benefits, it has given me real hope that there is a better way to fulfil my dreams of running a business and also be there for my family.
Setting up Pop-Up Bookshop has been helped incredibly by all of the marketing tools, resources, and information made readily-available (promo-materials, website, selling aids etc). For a busy working-mum like me, having this helping-hand has meant a speedy set-up and has proved invaluable to me being able to quickly focus on the actual selling of our lovely Usborne books!
The support network at Usborne Books at Home is also second-to-none; I have been welcomed and made to feel part of a family of like-minded women, always on-hand to offer friendly tips and advice.
I am incredibly passionate about working with local schools to promote literacy, helping more Dorset children to enjoy reading. Usborne offers a number initiatives that place free books into the hands of children - it is an inspirational company to work for!
But most importantly, Usborne books are simply beautiful, and so enjoyed by my children.
I have had a phenomenally successful start to my business, promoting to Team Leader in July 2018. I am building my downline so I can focus on helping other mums craving a better work-life balance to realise their true potential.
If I have inspired you to join forces and let me help guide you to sell these wonderful Usborne books to your friends, family, and local community, then don't hesitate to get in touch.
