In September, I started a new based-from-home career as an independent consultant for Usborne Books & More. Usborne is a phenomenal, well-established publisher of educational children's books designed to make learning fun!
I first fell in love with Usborne books at the annual homeschool conference we attend. The books are so beautiful and high-quality, fun, engaging, and hands-on that it's hard to NOT buy them all.
I had recently been wanting to start some sort of business that I could work around my home schedule, but all of the typical home-based businesses seemed over-saturated and not what I was looking for. I didn't even know Usborne had a home sales division until I bumped into a booth at the Mille Lacs County fair, but as soon as I figured it out, I knew I wanted in!
Usborne has provided a way for me to contribute to the finances of our family without having to sacrifice my commitment to being a wife and mom. I can do as much or as little as I want with it, and it's flexible enough to fit around my schedule. I was able to pay for all of our Christmas gifts this year using only the money I had earned from Usborne.
As an added bonus, we are stocking up on more amazing, gorgeous books than ever before! Our library is amazing, and I'm getting them all for free or dirt cheap. Every time a new box shows up on the doorstep, it's like Christmas for the kids. They love the books!
If you want to learn more about the books and the company, you can check out my website: http://readwithaudra.com
From there, you can also order books online or contact me about hosting a show or joining Usborne yourself. It has been worth every minute I've invested into it. Free books and real cash? Yes, please. :)
