It amazes me that I was able to post consistently since July. During that period of time, I’ve produced about 80 posts, so I thought I’d bring together the top 20 of them for the year. Next year, there’ll be a lot more to choose from as I have plenty planned for 2013.

Hopefully you’ve found something on this blog useful in 2012. Or maybe this is the first time you’ve come across it yourself. Either way, please share this resource with someone you know who is involved in the Direct Sales Business. There are millions of married women in America who are doing direct sales by themselves. Maybe educating their husbands can change that a little bit. I truly believe that can in a very major way change some lives and families for the better. Maybe a lot of them. That’s my mission with The Direct Sales Husband’s Handbook. Help me spread it.
Thank you, and Happy New year!
