My beloved wife has started a career in direct sales?
She has been sucked into the cult of party plan.
She is not in a pyramid scheme but she does appear to be at the base of a pyramid.
It makes me wonder is direct sales going to mean the end of retail?
My beloved sells apparel (which is relatively consumable) and she also sells a kitchen appliance (which is more like Capital Equipment).
She is working for commission only......and it is bloody hard work.
So why does she bother?
>>>>We have infants.....and we don't particularly want to "outsource" parenthood.
In a some what traditional way, I go off Monday to Friday, to work in shit (quite literally) to bring home some bread (euphemistically). On weekends & evenings, I stay-at-home, while my beloved goes door to door.
My beloved Wifey provides the majority of the child care for our two daughters. She is juggling the responsibilities of motherhood & Business Development Manager. Her vocational skills have been derived from a career in Midwifery and Medical Equipment & Pharmaceutical Sales.
Since her recent career change, her hourly rate has dropped significantly. The attraction of a career in Direct Sales is the compatibility with parenthood.
I was blessed with the opportunity to spend a couple of years as a part-time, stay at home Dad. Now I work, a 72.5 hour fortnight, juggling the responsibilities of provider, parent, husband & volunteer in the fight against diahorreal diseases....
