Hey I'm Mary Script Header
And just like you, I started my direct sales business to meet a need in my life. I’m a busy, homeschooling mom of 4, and I started my direct sales business so I could get out of the house and talk to grown-ups every now and then. I told myself I didn’t care about the money or the recognition, but all that changed as soon as I got in the door.

I was immediately drawn to all the possibilities of a direct sales business – from vacations to recognition to a life-changing income. 

I started my business doing in-person parties but quickly realized that if I wanted all the things, my family schedule couldn’t support that. There just wasn’t enough room on the calendar.

Then I tried Facebook Parties.

To say online parties changed my business would be the understatement of the century. I instantly fell in love with the ability to work where and when I wanted to and expand outside my local area. 

My business exploded, and I found myself quickly growing a team from all over the United States. 

During that season of growth, I also found myself juggling way too many balls. We were experiencing some serious growing pains, and most of it fell on my lack of systems. Because I’m no quitter, I decided something had to change, so I became a student of efficiency.

I read all the books and took all the courses. What came out of all the testing, learning, and mistakes, was a proven system for growth. I figured out where my time should be spent and on what tasks. I created systems for booking parties, host coaching, creating party content, and onboarding team members.

It was a well-oiled machine! Because of those systems, within 2 years, I had built a team that produced over $1 million in sales per year just on Facebook. I earned awards, traveled on multiple incentive trips, advanced in rank, and was part of the top 1% of the company. 

All of that brought me here.

As an entrepreneur at heart, I saw the need for something more. I wanted to help other direct sellers achieve the same thing. As a leader and now as a coach, I see way too many direct sellers confused and overwhelmed by the business. So our mission at Savvy Selling is pretty simple.
