Fall Changes and Opportunities

Fall is in full force and we even have freeze warnings out for tonight. My mind has turned to getting ready for cold weather and the purging of many acquired unnecessary trappings in my life.

I want to help as many of you as I can to make your homes safer by ridding your selves of the harmful chemicals you use every day and at the same time provide safe and effective cleaning and personal care solutions for you and your family.

October brings a chance for you to host a Norwex Party in your home and learn about the products that can be so helpful to you and earn a lot of free items to use in your own home. You provide a light refreshment and I do all the work.

I am also looking for team members. I just attended the IWLC Conference in Dubuque on leadership and business and I believe that Norwex is a great company to work for and be your own boss. They give a great discount, incentives and lots of training opportunities. They are concerned for their consultants and very charitable in their giving while putting forth a product that is good for us and the environment. If you join as a member of my team, I will be available to help you every way I can to see you achieve your dreams and goals.  View the video below to learn more about the Norwex opportunity.   Contact me using the form below if you are ready to start realizing your full potential as a Norwex Independent Consultant.

You can also visit my website  to learn more about the Norwex company, products, and opportunities.

2016 Norwex Conference

RACE_NorwexChemicalFreeZone_LogoI just returned from the Norwex 2016 National Conference, in Minneapolis MN, where attendance was nearly twice what it was last year! I benefited from some of the great workshops and speakers and came home with renewed enthusiasm for building my business.  It was fun being with those who have the same mission to help our friends and families create safe homes by using products that are safe and good for the environment.  They presented the new products and gave us a couple of them for free as well as the opportunity to purchase new product at a greatly reduced price.  I am excited about sharing these new products with all of my friends and customers.

We were encouraged during the Conference to set some challenging goals for the next year and, in light of the fact that I’ll be retiring in September, I made a commitment to use the extra time I’ll have to work on adding people to my team and to help them set and reach their own goals.

I am tremendously impressed with the Norwex company and the care they demonstrate for their consultants, their customers and indeed the world itself.  Their company promise is expressed as follows:

“We’re not just a company, we’re a promise for a brighter future……..A brighter future for our families, who will live happier, healthier lives as we create safe Havens by radically reducing chemicals in our homes with our simple, cost-effective solutions that truly work…….A brighter future for our consultants, who have the opportunity to empower themselves and others as they build their own businesses and live the life of their dreams in a community founded on integrity, trust, and respect.   ……..And a brighter future for our planet, as we share our Mission with others by showing them how to reduce the chemicals and waste that challenge the health of our environment.     At Norwex we are real people making a real impact through our promise of a brighter future for everyone, for generations to come.”

That pretty much sums it up for Me.  I am going to host a new product showing at my house toward the end of August.  Watch for further information and I hope to see  you there..


Celebrate Your Independence

4th-of-july_G10ud5d__LMany of us are anticipating 4th of July celebrations involving some travel, picnics, and fireworks displays as we celebrate our nation’s independence. My hope is that you all will have a great time and, above all, stay safe!

Speaking of being “safe”, perhaps it’s also time for a reminder of how you can be safer in your home, all year round, as you celebrate your independence from harmful cleaning chemicals by using the great Norwex products. Think too, about how you can be a saver while making your home safe by not having to replenish chemical cleaning products which make you unsafe!

Why not share that message with others, helping them to be “safer savers” by hosting a party in July with a chance to earn a complete mop system! Call me!  Write me! Let’s talk!

Let’s Party!

Sweet and tasty Belgium white and dark chocolate pralines

Today I want to explain three easy ways to host a Norwex party and get all the great benefits that I explained in my post yesterday.  I want to emphasize that while each of these approaches are different, you as the host will still get the same benefits regardless.  Ready to have a party?  Which approach would you prefer?

The Home Demonstration.  For this type of party you simply invite your friends to show up at your home and I’ll come and show many of the Norwex products (you might even request some specific ones) and I will demonstrate how they are used.  I really like smearing butter on your windows or mirrors and then showing how easy it is to clean it off!  This is really the best type of party to have since the products really sell themselves!  Your party-goers will be able to handle the products and see them in action.  They will also be able to ask questions about the products as well as their specific cleaning needs.  It also provides opportunity for that important face to face time that we seem to have less and less of these days. This type of party generally generates better sales and, therefore, earn you more free product!

A variation of this type of party, if you don’t want to have it in YOUR home is to have it in someone else’s home (it works best if you ask them first) and share the host benefits with them!  That way you can both invite folks and it could make for a larger party!  Just don’t forget the chocolate for me to snack on!

The Catalog Party.  Here is a great way to have a party if you live too far away for me to come to do a home party (although I am willing to travel a reasonable distance).  Catalog parties are also great if you have family and friends who live too far to come to your home.  You take a catalog or two and pass it around to your friends and family, or even at the office.  Or you show it to them personally letting them know which products you use and like.  You take the orders and then pass them on to me so I can enter them for you.  This method is a little more difficult if you don’t have a good personal knowledge of the products but it can be a good way to go if your customers know Norwex.  This method can also be used in tandem with your Home Party if you have folks who would like to come to your home but have a conflict!  I’ll be happy to provide you with the catalogs you need when we set a date to close your party.  There is no chocolate needed for this type of party!

The Web Page Party.  This works similarly to the Catalog Party except that you can invite your friends and family, and even your Facebook friends to use the link to my Norwex Website Catalog where they can browse the products and special offers and order what they want on-line.  Once again we would set a closing date for your party and they would need to order before that date.  The customer simply needs to designate you as their host before they make payment.  They also have the option of having their purchases shipped directly to them.  If you live nearby, however, it is less expensive to have their items shipped to you and then arrange for them to get them after they arrive.  As in the case of the Catalog Party, there is no chocolate needed unless you want to get some for yourself!

Ready to talk about having one of these kind of parties?  Please contact me through my Facebook page, or by leaving a comment below, and let’s talk about what works best for you!

Have you been to any of these types of parties?  How did you like them.  I’m interested in your ideas for creating Norwex theme parties!  What themes would you suggest and how would you do them.

Want to Know a Secret?

Girl Telling A Secret To Her Friend

I have a confession to make.  It’s not really a deep dark secret and it’s one that I probably share with most of you who are reading this.  My knee-jerk reaction is to issue an automatic NO in answer to someone who asks me to host a “home party”.  Does that sound like you?  Well at least it’s comforting to know that we are not alone!

Well now that we have that on the table, I want to suggest some reasons why you might want to say YES when I ask you to host a Norwex Party!  In a day or two, I’ll also tell you some of the different ways in which you can have a party.

First things first though: Why in the world would you ever want to say YES to host a Norwex party?

  • A good excuse to have your friends and family over … in person!  Have you ever thought about the fact that with social media being what it is, and actually communicating face to face becoming a rarity, it’s kinda nice to actually interact with folks without having to use your iPhone, computer or iPad?  A Norwex party is a great reason to have some face time with friends and family!
  • You will love the Norwex products!  If you haven’t already learned about Norwex products, or even if you have, there’s no better way to learn more about them than to have them demonstrated in your own home.  What’s more, you can even ask for specific products in which you might be interested to be demonstrated!
  • Your friends will love the products.  These days, more and more people are concerned about protecting the environment.  Not only that but everyone needs to be clean … they DO, right?  And with busy schedules, a house full of kids, a dislike for the routine of cleaning … we all know folks who would love to have something to make their cleaning easier.  Do you have friends with allergies?  Do you have short friends?  Tall friends?  Man friends? Kid friends? New mother friends?  I can show you products for ALL of them.  I promise, when your friends and family use my products they will thank YOU for introducing them.
  • Host Rewards. As a host, you will earn gifts and/or discounted product with any sales from your show. It’s not at all unusual for a host to receive gifts of up to 100-200.00 worth of Norwex products.  See information on this below.
  • Get your house cleaned for free.  That sounds attractive doesn’t it?  You don’t need to get your home spotless before the party.  In fact, I want you to LEAVE SOME DIRT to clean up!
  • Food. It’s very typical, whenever people get together, to find that there is also some tasty food and beverage available.  Please don’t spend a lot of time cooking and baking.  Don’t over do it.  Some store-bought treats will do just fine as long as you have some chocolate for me.  Coffee, Tea, and water are just fine!

No other direct sales company that I know of has the level of high quality host benefits as Norwex.  Here’s how you get them.  Each way works independently of the other … it is not a tiered system.

  • Number of Buying Guests: You will earn free products if you have 5 or more buying guests. Even if they each just buy one thing, it all counts. More buying guests than 5? … you get even more!
  • Shopping Spree from Percentage of Sales: The shopping spree starts at 8% of the total party sales and goes up to 12% depending on the size of the party.  If your party has sales of $500 you get a $50 shopping spree! That will get you a superior mop system at almost half price!
  • Free Window Cloth: Every booking your party gets you will get a window cloth.  If you get two party bookings you get a window cloth and a reusable grocery bag! Window cloths are not just for windows … they work great on mirrors and glass table tops.  I love my window cloth!
  • Monthly Hostess Special: This is the main goal of most hosts, because it gets you the most free product. You must have one booking from your party and at least $350 in sales to qualify for the first level of free hostess products.

Now … let me ask you … Why in the world would you ever say NO to hosting a Norwex party?  

And then let me ask you: WOULD YOU LIKE TO BOOK A NORWEX PARTY WITH ME?  There, I asked you.  Resist the urge to say NO.  Say YES and join the fun.  You’ll be glad you did!

Have you hosted a Norwex party before?  Was it fun?  If not, what would keep you from hosting a Norwex party?  Please Comment below, contact me on my website, or message me on my Norwex Facebook Page.

Watch for my next post in which I’ll talk about the different ways to have a party.

Falling Leaves and Warm Sheets!

Autumn-LeavesToday is  an off day for me and I have been busy finishing up my Fall decorating.  The wind is blowing and the leaves are falling.  We will be tracking in leaves and other such debris from outside.  I am thankful for my Door Mats, one at the front door and one going out the patio doors.  They catch a lot of stuff and are easy to clean off with the brush.



I sprayed the bed with Mattress Cleaner and put on the flannel sheets. The heated Mattress Pad will be added in November.   403422-Mattress-CleanerWe have already cleaned all the windows with the EnviroCloth and window cloth on the extended mop handle.


I have been blessed to help new people find Norwex in October and continuing into November.   What a joy to use cleaning aids that I know are good for the environment and do a superior job of cleaning.   I am also very impressed by all the rewards they give for parties and consultants.  If you want to know more about one of the best direct selling companies and their great products,  just contact me.
