I’m excited you are here, looking for more information about becoming an PaperPie consultant! I am here to answer all those questions you’re certain to have, and share with you the reasons I joined!
I started my business as a PaperPie Brand Partner (formerly Usborne Books & More) purely for the discount. I literally didn’t plan to sell even one book.
However, before my PaperPie add-on book kit arrived, I’d already realized how easy this business is and my first party was a big success with over $400 in sales that rewarded me with LOTS of free books to stock my bookshelves.
It was so much fun and I realized this is a business I could enjoy doing and work on my own schedule. I was ready to work it!
