Always Stay a Student

I know many of you have heard me say a thousand times how important it is to stay a student, but I will say it again, when you think you know everything, that’s when you are only setting yourself up for failure. Every day I strive to learn something new and at Pure Romance we are always offering events, contests and trips that give Consultants the opportunity to do the same.

Most recently, Pure Romance just hosted a Consultant Incentive Trip in Naples, Florida, which focused on rewarding some of our up-and-coming Consultants. The company has five tiers or levels that Consultants strive to reach when building their business, and for this trip, we concentrated on the first two levels. There were some women who were brand new to the business and hungry to grow, while others had been with Pure Romance for years, and saw this as an opportunity to take their business to the next level.

I was so impressed by their drive and determination to soak up as much information as possible. It was a diverse group hailing from all over the US and on the first day of the trip they were understandably sitting back safely in their own worlds; however, by the end of the trip they were a close-knit group, networking with one another and building strong friendships and camaraderie that will no doubt last long after the trip has ended.

Pure Romance is very much like a family and as the parent company to our Consultants, we are committed to finding ways to make their businesses easier for them. This is part of the reason we love to bring the Consultants together so they can take away techniques and skills from one another that they may have never thought of before. The ultimate goal is to build teamwork and a support system that extends further than just their Pure Romance business.

I especially love our incentive trips because it gives me one-on-one time with our representatives and I enjoy getting the opportunity to get to know them better. We had several dinners where they were able to go straight to the source on some of their most important business-building questions and just share a little information about who they are, why they love what they do and how Pure Romance has changed their lives. We couldn’t be more grateful for our 40,000 plus Consultants and as long as we are in business they will always be our first utmost priority.

    Hello, I just wanted to let you know that I had a great time at a friend’s pure romance party. Ninoshka Basantes was your representative. She was very kind and funny. We loved the experience because we laughed but everything was presented in a respectful way, nothing vulgar or of bad taste. I’m planning a second party with Ninoshka and I hope to have fun like the first time!

    I am in the DC/MD area and I try to make every team meeting, team training and corporate training because it allows me to discover other ways to operate my business, work my parties and its a boost seeing all the sisters who are eager & rocking their businesses. I learn something each and every time I attend, so I look forward to events and staying a student to grasp ways to boost my business.

    Patty B (that’s what I like to call you), I am thankful for this opportunity. I guess you could say I’m still in “school mode” after having just finished two years of studying some pretty technical stuff. But, it’s great to be able to read information about the business for which I have so much passion. I am looking forward to completing Party School, not just for the points, but as a means to continue to grow as a successful business owner. Again, thank you for ALWAYS putting us first, for providing us with the tools we need and being that model of success that many of us aspire to!

    I found this article via Party School, I am a transition-er from SP and fell off last fall due to not being able to “get on board” HOWEVER after researching and reading articles (oh yes I could never give it up fully) I have found that this company truly cares about the consultants and offers so much to them and takes such good care of them that I decided to come back. This time I don’t feel like a transfer or transition-er but I finally feel like I AM PURE ROMANCE!!

    Patty Brisben,
    I am very excited to start this new journey of my life. I am definitely passionate as you are for empowering women to make that next “step”. I envision that not only will we, as consultants, will be able to help people heal but stay healthy. I put alot of thought into this business by attending multiple hosted parties before making my decision. I suffered for years at limiting myself in what I could do because of lack of confidence that was unwillingly taken from me. After immediately finishing college from losing my favorite job and a failed marriage from an adulterer, I decided that after using “Pure Romance” I needed to also give other women and even men the option to stay healthy for the “one”. Not only did I sell my guitar that I loved to pay for my business, but I put my soul literally into this. I hope to reflect positive output through my constructive creativity and stamina. It is hard to get back on my feet from my ex, but know now I feel more than a woman than ever. Thank you for this opportunity. God bless for your products!
    I AM EMPOWERED.

I am inspired by her contagious enthusiasm about her Pure Romance Business, her love and concern for her sister consultants. Watching her a young mother of two small children and still be able to go out and party and get paid to have fun and educate other women is what encourage me to Go For It!! So here I am almost 59 years young and starting my own Pure Romance business!
