Direct Sales is NOT for me! This was my thought before I started PartyLite; that was 16 years ago. I started my career with the company after I graduated college as a Special Needs teacher, never intending to stay any longer than my first few parties. I'm happy to say that this opportunity changed my life! The income is more than I make as a 16 year veteran teacher, and the trips, training, and life experiences I have had are uncomparable to any other career or job that I have had. I am able to introduce a fabulous, superior quality product to my customers in many forms of fragrance, beautify homes with ambiance and decor, and change people's lives by helping them generate the income that they need to truly live life instead of struggling paycheck to paycheck. I love my PartyLite life! It has made a believer out of me and to so many others. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any product questions or income opportunity questions. Let's change the world together, one flame at a time.
