An Open Letter to my Pure Romance Consultants

As I was in the process of preparing for our national convention this week, I was struck by how powerful our network of Consultants has become not only in number, but also in a one-of-a-kind sisterhood you can only find at Pure Romance.

As with everyone, convention each year is a crossroads of different journeys, and it’s always a joy knowing that I walk away learning something from other’s experiences. I can’t stress enough the importance of staying a student and constantly looking forward to the knowledge that everyday brings no matter where you are in life.

For weeks now, our Consultants have been taking their excitement to Facebook, posting pictures of their dresses, encouraging one another and proclaiming with confidence that this is going to be their best year yet.
Let me tell you, this excitement is contagious and inspiring. So with convention just around the corner, I wanted to direct my thanks and praise directly to the women who make it all possible.

To my Consultants:

Not everyone can say that they have found a network of women, like those at Pure Romance, who will lift each other up in times of need and celebrate greatness when another tastes success. In fact, some women go their whole lives without experiencing this kind of support.

But you, our Pure Romance Consultants around the world, work everyday to live and breathe our mission to empower, educate and entertain. You work hard, play hard and breathe passion into all that you do- which is exactly what we want to give back to you at our Convention.

Those of you who will be experiencing your first convention- congratulations! You are about to surround yourself with the strongest, most amazing women out there. Through them, you will recognize how limitless your own potential truly is. I look forward to watching you in the years to come and being there to see you achieve your dreams.

More than anything, I wanted you each to know that none of this is possible without your hard work, your dedication and your belief in yourselves and the mission of our company. You are, and always will be the heart of Pure Romance, and I can’t wait to say thank you in person at convention!

For those of you not yet involved with Pure Romance who might be feeling like you don’t have a voice or support network and are struggling to make ends meet- you are not alone. Many of us have sat in your shoes and know first hand the challenges that you face. Know that you have a home in Pure Romance. You have it in you to take control of your life and make the change! We often say you are in business for yourself but not by yourself. Your legacy starts today! And who knows, we just might be celebrating your journey at convention next year.

    I feel excited about convention however am not able to attend this year. But this is my first year and I joined of course to make money but I could do anything for extra cash, I joined to be part of this wonderful network of inspiring women. I have had a very difficult year so far and even while anticipating these changes my PR sisters have been so supportive and helpful. I did not only start my own business this year I started a wonderful friendship with many people. So happy to have joined PR!! Thank you and thank you new sisters. Karen

      Hi Karen,
      Sorry to hear that you can’t make it this year. We’ll certainly miss having you, but hopefully you can at least tune in for some of it via Ustream! I’m so glad that you’ve experienced so much success thanks to your own determination! It’s so great to have you on board, and I’m looking forward to meeting you in person at next year’s Convention.

    Thank you for working so hard to make this business what it is. I just signed on at January’s EOO and I love this company! And to top it all off I think I have the best team there is. We all help eachother daily on our group page and it is so great to know that help is there when you need it. I can’t wait to make it to my first convention next year! It will be an honor to meet you.

    Thanks so much for this post!! I have been doing PR for 3 yrs and wouldn’t dare see myself doing anything else. I just moved and the best thing is my business came with me 🙂 As for the sisterhood, it is beyond words to express the great sisters that I have meet and grown very close to. Ive seen many help others get off to a great start in their business and them not even be on their team. That is what it is all about..paying it forward!! I love it and love you for giving all that you do for us also!!

    1. Patty Brisben

      Teresa, you are so right! Few things are more important in life than paying it forward. It’s so inspiring to hear that you and your Pure Romance sisters have really given meaning to this saying. Thank you for all that you do!

    This is my first convention and I can’t wait. I just had my first $4000 month in March and I am committed to 2011 being a breakthrough year. Thank you to not only PattyB. for establishing such am empowering organization for women but also my leaders who embraced this empowerment and shared it with me… Ashley Travis & Jamie Halfacre!!

  6. Patty Brisben

    Hi Nadine, you are going to have so much fun at Convention! We have been hard at work making sure this is the best one yet! Congratulations on all that you have accomplished so far- I look forward to watching you grow! Thank you for sharing in my vision to empower women everyday!

    Hi Patty,
    What a lovely memo- I will be sure to pass it along to my team and will also post it on my FB page for all fans to read!
    You are so right on when you mentioned what a powerful support system we have become, not only for ourselves, but for our sister consultants as well. It saddens me to think that there are women that will never get to experience such support and it really drives me to put forth the extra effort for that one girl, way in the back corner of the room hiding behind her catalog, even if she doesnt look like she’s got alot to spend that night, I embrace her like she has millions because to her, it might just be worth that much! It never ceases to amaze me when I hear how this group reaches out to help empower and educate- and lets be honest, it takes a certain something extra to be a home party consultant to begin with, but in our business I truly feel it takes an extra little bit of confidence, class and fabulousness to actually pull it off and we are all true leaders, starting with you! With the wonderful example you have set for us, we have no choice BUT to be successful!
    Keep being Patty, you are an inspiration to many!
    We will see you all this weekend…Ill be the one in the hat and boots….. =0)

    Patty – Thank you for everything you have offered each one of us. As I was reading, my eyes starting to gloss over…. I’m thinking back to what I have accomplished in the past 7 1/2 yrs. AND last year…. just blew me away! My first full year of doing PR full time…. I am so lucky to have PR in my life and be able to live life on my terms! see you in a few days!

    I joined PR in August of 2010. I am grateful for the opportunity that it has given me. I love what I do. I love that I walk into a house and I am a stranger to most of the girls in the room and when I leave I have been able to teach someone something that they didn’t know. They walk out of the party with some new found confidence in themselves. I look forward to being a part of National Convention next year. I want to walk the stage next year. I have lots of work to do to be able to do that but I will get there. I know I will! Thank you Patty for the words of encouragement. Thank you for being a wonderful roll model for so many women.
