Make it a Direct Sales and Small Business Holiday!

Make it a Direct Sales and Small Business HolidayWe are quickly approaching the holiday shopping season. And if you’re reading this, you’re most likely a small business owner or direct seller/network marketer that would love to have some of that business come your way.

And it’s awesome to support the small businesses in our community. When you shop there, you not only get amazing customer service, but you are also supporting the economics of your community. You see, when you shop local like this, you’re not just sending money to a nameless, faceless corporation. Instead, you are helping your friends and neighbors put food on the table.

So this holiday season, commit to making your shopping list with items offered by small businesses and direct sellers. Not sure what to get, reach out to these business owners for suggestions…they have items at every price range and for every person on your list!

What about you? Are you ready to commit to making this a direct sales and small business only holiday? If so, please share your business in the comments, including a link! And then take some time to view the other items offered in the comments when you make your list. Let’s support each other!

    We’ve all found ourselves in a pickle at times! These are the moments you never expect and are not prepared for! A spill on your shirt, a missing button, a torn finger nail, or lunch stuck in your teeth.

    If you have children, you have more unique challenges ranging from nose bleeds to skinned knees. The “In A Pikle” bag (or more frequently referred to as the “Pikle”) is a compact organizer for essential convenience items needed for the daily emergencies of life. It is camouflaged to look like a designer wallet. Inside are 8 clear, removable pouches that attach to the fashionable cover. It is designed to hold a stain remover pen, bandages, nail clippers, tweezers, safety pins, and much more.

    Women have many of these items at the bottom of their purse, but can never find them when they need them! Finally, there is a way to organize daily emergency items in a fun and stylish way. The “Pikle” comes in many trendy designs and fun colors providing something for every taste. With the “Pikle”, you’ll be able to successfully get out of almost any situation.

    Christmas can sometimes be a hassle with who to buy for, finding the perfect gift, and the rush of people everywhere. Tupperware is an axing product that has multiple purposes, is for everyone, can be bought online, and the majority of the products have a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee. So skip the hustle and bustle of the season and make shopping for gifts easier on yourself.

    What a fabulous opportunity Jen thank you so much :). 18 months ago I started my own business as a Fifth Avenue Collection jeweller. It has completely changed my life. I have more time for my friends and family, I work my own hours and I have met and made friends with so many beautiful and inspirational people. For those who haven’t heard of FAC, it is a range of beautiful and affordable high fashion jewellery made using genuine Swarovski crystals, AAA cubic zirconia and natural gemstones. Every piece is nickel, lead and cadmium free and is backed by a six month warranty and lifetime service guarantee. Our core business is usually done through home shows but our jewellery is also available through catalogue and on-line sales. I’d like to invite you to check out my website and also find me on Facebook at

    What an awesome idea! I love supporting direct sales and have found some fabulous friends by being involved in direct sales over the years. The holidays are a time for giving and supporting small businesses and charitable causes are an awesome way to give back some of the blessings you’ve experienced during the year. I’m a Scentsy Family Independent Consultant and represent both the Grace Adele ( handbag and fashion accessory line and recently Scentsy fragrance as well ( My Scentsy fragrance business is a charitable business with 100% of proceeds going to various charities, so check it out to see if there is a cause you’d like to support through your purchase of a Scentsy fragrance product — or, better yet, contact me ( and let’s talk about supporting your favorite charity this holiday season!
