Hi, I’m Carrie from The Tightwad Teacher and today I’m going to share with you how I earn extra money selling Norwex.
As we all know, teachers do not make a lot of money nor will they ever make a ton of money. You will find teachers working part-time jobs over the summer and on weekends to help pay the bills. For teachers who have small children, options for part-time jobs are quite limited, but I have found the PERFECT side hustle!
Can you really make money selling Norwex?
I am a Norwex Independent Sales Consultant. I went to my first party a few months ago and was BLOWN AWAY by the products. I was so impressed with the products that I signed up as a consultant at that party. I knew I wanted to be part of something that has such a wonderful mission. The mission of Norwex is “to improve quality of life by radically reducing chemicals in our homes.” I have two small children and want to expose them to the least amount of unsafe chemicals as possible! There are tons of chemicals in cleaners,food, etc. and I want to keep them away from my children! I had a scary situation where one child got into my diluted Clorox cleaner and sprayed my other child. It was then and there that I knew I needed to make my hope as safe as possible for my little ones.
I love being a consultant for such a wonderful company and LOVE the idea that this business is all mine and I am in control. I set my own hours and get to watch my business grow! A lot of teachers will do tutoring on the side for extra money, but I like to have something different to do besides tutoring. I wanted to do something completely different from education, but in a way, I am still educating people on how to make their homes safer for their families. The best part of my side job is sharing these AMAZING products with other people in their homes or on Facebook! Yes, Facebook parties can be done in the comfort of your own home while wearing your pjs!
A lot of people are turned off by the model of going to parties and feeling obligated to buy the products. I was one of those people until I went to a Norwex party. I see most of the products at home parties as luxuries (jewelry, clothes, etc.) but, everyone has to clean, so why not clean faster, cheaper and safer? I can use ONE cloth with JUST water to clean almost my ENTIRE house! With that being said, the products are useful in my home as well as my classroom! DOUBLE BONUS! I don’t plan on ever walking down the cleaning aisles ever again!
Norwex Is Also Useful In The Classroom!
You see many classrooms at schools use disinfecting wipes to clean desks. A lot of times small children are using the wipes to clean their own desks, which exposes them to chemicals and leaves a residue on the desks. Have you read the label on a box of disinfecting wipes? There are TONS of chemicals in those wipes that children are exposed to everyday! Did you know that the surface needs to stay wet for around 7 minutes for the product to disinfect? I didn’t until I went to my first Norwex party and it was pointed out to me. I went home and read my label and sure enough, there it was! So you probably aren’t even disinfecting the surface. What is being left behind is a layer of toxic residue. YUCK! Just think about it. Your kids touch the surface of their desk and then touch their faces, eyes or even put their fingers in their mouth! Now they are ingesting the chemicals!!
There are tons of Norwex products that clean with only water! We have products for your home, personal care, car and pet, plus an adorable line of kids products! My house is much safer for my kids and my classroom is much safer for my students thanks to Norwex!
