Fab guest post and profile from Donna Pinnell
I have always worked, since I was an office junior at 16, I have loved the challenge of working and obviously this has supported my shopping habit over the years. When I had my daughter in 2005, work took a back seat and whilst still working part time, having something that fitted around my family was most important (the mommy gene suddenly took over the shopping one)
I have worked a P.A, Buyer,(general dogsbody), HR Assistant and dabbled in sales but have to admit I was never going to be sales person of the month but when I came across Phoenix Trading, I fell in love with the products and signed up to be a Trader within the week. I still have my “day” job but Phoenix fits perfectly around both work and my family, as you can do as little or as much as you want with your Phoenix business, it is entirely up to you! This blog is not a Phoenix sales pitch, far from it, the product sells itself, I just need to turn up with stock and smile alot (and even I can do that).
Phoenix Trading offer support and advice and the network of traders are there to offer guidance and even stock swapping if you need something urgently! They are the No 1 direct selling card company and this is amazing when, at the beginning of the year, I hadnt even heard of them! This goes to show how much scope there is for new traders! You have to like the product and be proud of it, you can’t sell anything which you don’t believe in but once you have seen the cards and accessories, you cant help but fall in love with them!
Unlike many franchises which involve significant initial investment, becoming an independent trader does not cost an arm and a leg. £45 will get you started, and you can also choose to buy one of three subsidised introductory stock packs from as little as £50. I think this is one of the main advantages of Phoenix Trading as most of us don’t have large amounts of money to start. Have a look at the website and decide for yourself! www.phoenix-trading.co.uk/web/donnapinnell Please note that I am an Independent Phoenix Trader and the views expressed here are my own and I am not speaking on behalf of Phoenix Trading Ltd. Phoenix has opened up lots of opportunities for me from both a professional and personal perspective. I have met some fantastic people and expanded on being able to provide cards into launching a gifts website www.littlelilypad.co.uk . Phoenix is a fantastic opportunity if you are looking for an additional income and if you are not, its a great place to find quality gorgeous cards and accessories at brilliant prices, perfect for moms on a budget! I am happily looking forward to continuing to build my Phoenix business around my family and life, what more can a girl ask for?
