I saw my first BEIJO (a lipstick red backpack)at a tradeshow in Denver. One of my customers was carrying the bag & it just drew me in! I went on line, did a little research, reached out to BEIJO about selling & honestly did nothing! That was summer 2007. As time went on, I would periodically see a BEIJO… in an airport, in another city & even at a Chicago White Sox’s game! I’m not saying the bags were everywhere but … BEIJO is total arm candy so you tend to notice them! The last “straw” was being out with my husband in the February of 2008 & I again noticed someone carrying a bag. I pointed it out to him and he replied “enough already about the purses, would you just sell them?” So, I re-contacted the company, filed paperwork with the State of Indiana, opened a business account at my bank, ordered some purses & off I went! I was now an Independent BEIJO Fashion Consultant – & I had never owned a BEIJO, never attended a Beijo Shopping Party, couldn’t even pronounce the company name correctly & most of my friends had not even heard of the brand!
Now realize, I am not a “foo-foo” kind of a gal – nor was I a tomboy growing up. I can certainly put a little black dress on & knock ‘em dead & in the same 24-hour span that I can be at a football game decked out in yoga pants, sneakers & a hoodie. I pride myself on the fact that I am a fairly practical gal – I know how to shop for a good value.
So again, why do I sell BEIJO & what made me start? Simple answer the sassy bags & stunning colors is what drew me in & what keep me going! I have always been the sort of a gal who dressed up an outfit with a fun or colorful purse – I was never one for a black purse. I believe this habit was formed at a very early age. Selling BEIJO allows me to do something fun, connect with personable women & make money at the same time!
