“I dedicated myself to my Tupperware business for one year and I left my job as a teacher.”
When I first started, I sold Tupperware products about 10 to 15 hours a week. As time passed and as I advanced in the company, my reasons for staying with Tupperware changed. My partner is a cook, so he works Thursday to Monday, 11 a.m. to midnight. I was a teacher working Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. We practically never saw each other.
But because my Tupperware business was going well—I liked the positivity, I liked the people—I’ve now been fully dedicating myself to my Tupperware business officially for one year and I’ve left my job as a teacher. It has a lot to do with having quality time with my partner.
“I want Tupperware to continue to make our lives better.”
What I also want to do is help people turn less often to restaurants, or to the quick trip to the grocery store for a pre-cooked chicken. With simple recipes—less salt, less sugar and less fat—for the week, they can really save time and money and eat healthy meals. On the weekend and from time to time, it’s okay to eat out. But during the week, everyone is in the same boat. What I really want is to show people that by using an organized system and cooking tools, they can quickly make healthy, tasty meals. My parties are all about that.
With my partner, I want to always have this quality of life, always have our time together each week–a moment just for us. I want Tupperware to continue to make our lives better, to have an extraordinary team, to have an extraordinary organization, to keep around people who have confidence in me, and to find people who want to take advantage of the opportunity so that they also can change people’s lives.
It’s really that vision of showing people that we are not just selling bowls, even if we do so in our presentation. There are real people for whom this has completely changed their world.
