Vendor Profile: Christine Breitlow with Usborne Books

After being invited to a couple online Usborne Books & More parties, I quickly fell in love with these gorgeous, interactive and engaging books. And my children were fascinated with them, too! We loved the books so much, I knew that I’d be buying many more for my kiddos, so I finally decided to become a consultant last summer to take advantage of the¬†discount. Before I knew it, running online parties and introducing these fantastic books to other families became my new favorite past-time. When I joined, I was working a demanding full-time job and I had three small children at home which kept me pretty busy, but I used any spare moment to work on my book business. The crazy thing – it didn’t feel like work!! I started branching out to other areas of the business besides parties, including fundraising, daycare book fairs, vendor events and the school and library division. I ended up quitting my full-time job at the end of last year to stay home with my kiddos and really focus time and energy on my UBAM business. Becoming a consultant was hands-down one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! Not only does my family now have access to hundreds of amazing books, but I’ve found a new purpose. I didn’t realize just how unhappy and unfulfilled I had been at my old job until I discovered how empowering UBAM is. Being a consultant gives me something meaningful to spend time on, it provides me with a fun outlet for my creativity and it enables me to meet and interact with all sorts of amazing people… all while impacting literacy! How awesome is that!! And most importantly to me and my family, it allows me to be home with my kiddos who are growing up all too fast .
