Hi, I’m Hope!
Thanks for stopping by, thought I would tell you a little bit about myself. My journey into direct sales/social selling started at the ripe age of 19 – I attempted to sell a makeup line that (at the time) was more suited for middle age ladies – well, guess what, my friends didn’t have the time or money for that, and my first attempt was less than successful – but I learned a lot from that experience.
Over the next 15 years, I did a whole bunch of other things. I was a Event Producer for a National Charity, ran one of the largest conference for Television producers in the world. Heck, I was even a renaissance festival performer for about 4 years. But then, adult hood caught up with me, and my husband I decided to start a family. Which meant no more travelling for months on end. I had a small event photography business, so decided to focus on that while raising our family. But, what they don’t tell you about working your own photography business, is that the busier you are photographing other people’s lives, the less of your own that you have. Then, I saw “IT” – a locket, a beautiful piece of jewelry that could capture a story and share something special with the world. I jumped! If only to sell a locket or two in my studio – but what I didn’t know is that my passion for helping others find their dreams, would be a far bigger draw then my own passion for photography.
Within 18 months, Our Team Sparkles grew to 600 amazing women and men wanting to share the stories that the lockets provided. Fast forward until now, lots of changes, but I have found two wonderful homes.
I joined an amazing company called Modere. Modere is a category-leading portfolio of lifestyle essentials—personal care, health & wellness, and household products that are equal parts safe, high performing, and beautifully designed. Our formulas are proven and tested, and have been trusted by customers around the world for more than 25 years.
But then there is my other passion – teaching and technology. I have the privilege to be part of the Sassy Suite which is a community of like-minded direct sellers and entrepreneurs who are looking for the better way to promote their business. My main job with Sassy Suite is technology for the blogging boot camps and managing the main (and sub) websites. Grab your favouite cup of tea and come on over!
