Looking for a New Opportunity?

Are you looking for a way to earn extra income?  Or maybe you're looking for a way to build up your own home store for less?  If either of these are you, there are two upcoming opportunities for you to learn more about becoming a Shelf Reliance Independent Consultant, in addition to simply talking to me.
1.     Shelf Reliance weekly conference call on Tuesday, May 22 at 1 pm CDT/12 pm MDT.  Here's the summary::   
"Topic:  Shelf Reliance History/ Opportunity.
You are in for a treat! This call will feature our founders, Steve Palmer and Jason Budge, as well as Executive Vice President Jason Norton. They will share their inspiring story of how Shelf Reliance came about as well as the amazing opportunity our home party program provides! Through this call, you will learn why Shelf Reliance is your best opportunity to realize your thriving life.

To join the call, please dial (917) 338-1451 and use passcode 578489#. You may also listen to each call through your computer and follow along with presenter slides by visiting"
I have participated in several of these calls in the 2 months I've been an Independent Consultant and I always come away with something that helps me not only in my business but also in my personal life.
 2.  Training Meeting in Branson, MO
My upline sponsors are offering a local training meeting for current and prospective consultants on Thursday, May 24th. 
11 am - 12 pm  will be a Shelf Reliance Home Party, complete with presentation and food sampling.  just like we would do for a host. 
12:00 - 12:30 pm will be a THRIVEing lunch while we answer your general questions.
12:30-1:30 pm will be "back office" training. 
If you'd like to attend the training meeting/Tasting in Branson, please let me know.  If you want to go for the Tasting portion, you are more than welcome to come with me.

I thoroughly enjoy being a part of the Shelf Reliance family.  They treat their Independent Consultants very well, constantly encouraging us without a "Sell, sell, sell!" pressure.  I get to help others become more self-reliant and prepared for the future and I'm working towards my family's financial goals and dreams.

What can I make?

There are two different ways you earn commission on the parties you hold.
1. Q Orders - Between 20% - 32% on all first month Q orders, depending on the total $ amount of all the Q’s you sign up for that month.
2. One Time Orders - You are paid 10% of all one time orders.
 More details about the commission plan are here.

As you build your team with consultants under you, you earn ASAP bonuses and up to 2% on your team's sales for up to 3 levels below you.

In addition to commission, for orders outside of a Home Tasting or for Home Tastings that you host, you also receive the host benefits which includes 10% of party sales in free product (retail price) plus opportunities to earn half off product.  Details on host benefits are here.

How much to start? 

To become a Consultant, the basic kit costs $199 + shipping (my total was $220.08).  With just one $1000 order, you can basically get back your investment (10% Commission and 10% free product) - plus you get all the fun stuff in the Consultant Kit.  When I started we set a goal for when we wanted our investment back and we have beat that original goal easily - thanks to all of you!  Your Consultant Kit comes with enough samples for you to host multiple Tasting parties to get you started. 

After that initial investment, you can have an online store for a monthly fee (check mine out).  I found this to be essential for my business, but you may not.

What's the catch?  There's always a catch?

The other requirement (in addition to the Consultant Kit) to being a consultant is to sign up under your Independent Consultant (me) with a monthly Q of $50 in product (plus shipping and taxes so about $60).   Your Q can not be under yourself.  As long as you keep your Q active, you can be an active Independent Consultant.  This allows you to receive that 10% Commission on any orders outside of your Q that you place for yourself or for others.  And if you sign someone up with their own Q, under you, you receive 20-32% of their 1st month's Q budget and then 5% every month after that.  Details on that are here.  The benefit of the Q is that your food storage continues to grow each month and you can take advantage of the monthly sales as part of your Q.

What support do I get after I sign up?

As a member of my Shelf Reliance team, I am here to give you training and support.  My sponsor is also available for additional assistance.  In addition, Shelf Reliance provides a weekly conference call to help us be more familiar with the products, specials, how the business works, become more motivated, etc.  Finally there are lots of websites that are available to help you build your business the way YOU want it to be.  That's just one of the many things I love about Shelf Reliance - It's my business and I can grow it as much or as little as I want, in the way that I want.  If I want to focus on home parties and not online, I can.  If I want to focus my attention online, I can do that.

Okay, I'm interested.  What do I do now?

If you are thinking "This is perfect for me!", give me a call at 417-886-9489 or email me and we'll get you started.  If you're thinking "This might be just what I'm looking for but I want to learn more", come with me to the training in Branson next Thursday and see what it's all about.  I would love to have you join my team!
