Christina Gagnon - PartyLiteI love what I do - You Can TOO!
In March 1997, I started my business with PL as a hobby, intending to support my Candle habit with the 50% discount that PL gives us.
At the time, I worked for a large insurance company in their marketing/IT department. I "liked" my job but really who was I kidding, I wanted out and needed an escape from my 9-5 job. I wanted to HAVE FUN AND MAKE GREAT MONEY by working less and having more time to do the things I wanted to do like waking up to NO ALARM CLOCK :)
I am so excited to say that after a year and a half of working my PL business along side of my (more than) full-time job, I was able to leave my job and do PL only. My PartyLite income replaced my Full-time income. I never dreamed this "little candle thing" would give my family the income that it brings today!
In 1997 my income was $15,000
In 1998 my income was $19,458
In 1999 my income was $29,905 THE YEAR I LEFT MY CORPORATE JOB
In 2000 my income was $31,200
In 2001 my income was $38,109
In 2002 my income was $37,767
In 2003 my income was $39,509
In 2004 my income was $41,200
In 2005 my income was $43,864
In 2006 my income was $56,243
In 2007 my income was $58,286
In 2008 my income was $69,288
*This truly is how much I made in paychecks not how much in candles I sold!
Because of the FLEXIBILITY PartyLite gives, I am able to focus on what matters most... being there for my family and friends anytime they need! We can take a vacation every month if we want. In fact in 2005 WE did, we took a vacation to somewhere tropical and fun EVERY month, thank s to PartyLite and the flexibility to work when I want. By working hard and playing hard we can pick up and go when we choose. This year was truly speical when we took a cruise with my husbands friends from work (all firefighters) and their wives on my birthday we swam with the Stingrays in Grand Caymen, that is truly something I will never forget. The memories and friendships that last forever.
Because of the INCOME PartyLite gives, we no longer live in debt/paycheck to paycheck and I love that we get to go on vacation multiple times a year and pay cash! And Our Christmas every year is no longer put onto credit cards!
Because of the FUN PartyLite brings, I actually have a social life! I have made many lifelong friends: my Hostesses, Guests and Consultants on my Team! Friends are hard to come by these days and the friends I have made will be my friends for life.
Because my INCOME continues to grow each year, this provides peace of mind and security for my family and I's future. There is no ceiling that you hit with PL...the skies the limit!
My favorite thing to do is to help others start their own business with PartyLite. I am proud to say there are women on my Team that have also been able to quit their FT jobs because of the business they have built with PL....this is very exciting!!!
There are 3 types of Consultants:
#1 The "Hobby Consultant": this is where you can dabble in PL a little, get 50% discount on all your candles and make a little extra spending cash. People who choose the "Hobby" program tend to do 2-4 shows per month, earn $200-$400 profit while working 1 ½-3 hrs per week (up to 12 hrs per month) We also have those who only sell by taking order via the internet.
#2 The "Part-Time consultant": This is a consultant who does about 6-8 parties per month maybe as a supplement to their current job, earn $600-$800 profit, while working 4 ½ -6 hrs per week. (up to 24 hrs per month)
#3 The "Full-Time consultant": This is the Consultant who does 10-12 shows per month. I say "Full-time" because these consultants make a full-time income, while working PT hours. This consultant can make $1000+ unlimited (you choose how many hours you work!)
The great thing about PartyLite is you can take it as fast or slow as you would like. It's about what you want and I am here to support every consultant on my Team no matter what type of Consultant they choose to be!
