Right now, Stampin' Up! is offering it's Starter Kit for 20% off - it's only $259. You get over $560 worth of product for that, and you get all the benefits afforded a demonstrator..."..benefits?, what benefits?" I hear you say.
Well, firstly, we get a discount on our own product purchases....whoo hoo! Secondly, commission on everything we sell. If you're a serious crafter, that's well worth the investment. Work out what you currently spend, and I think you'll find it's a very attractive offer. And who doesn't want their hobby funded by someone else?! Then, as demonstrators we have access to a ton of information & ideas that you can't get otherwise. We have product sneak peaks, company events, our own forum with more tips and tricks than you can poke a stick at, and well, what more do you want?!
AND.... signing up also allows you to run a home based business that can supplement your current income. There are many types of demonstrators, from hobbyists to full-on business women, so before you say no, that's not for me, consider that this kind of enterprise could be great for you.
That said, check out what's in the kit, and remember that you can switch things out if there's other sets, or colours that you'd prefer. Feel free to call me for a chat if you'd like more info.
