Breaking News: I'm Giving Away a Business!

UPDATED 3-17-09!!!!!!

BREAKING NEWS!

I'm giving away a business! Who wants it?

Many of you know I have a business that has something to do something with books... and stories...and memories...

I'm a National Founding Leader for Cherish Bound. An amazing direct sales company founded 5 years ago by 2 amazing people with a vision for traditions, stories, and families. Outside of my family, Cherish Bound is my passion and my life. I've been waking up for four and a half years thanking God for this amazing opportunity. I find myself thinking, "Is this for real? Can I really be so lucky...so blessed to have this opportunity?" Yep! It's for real.

I want to share this opportunity with all of you....So here's the scoop!

Basically, we know we have a good thing going here at CherishBound and would love for more people to know about us. We receive great feedback from our customers about how preserving memories and paying attention to the story has changed their lives and improved family communications. We want to help more people, especially during these hard times... so we are looking to add 400 people to our team in the next couple of months.

Won't you join us?

I'll tell you a few of the reasons why I decided to join Cherish Bound:

  • I wanted to be home with my kids
  • I wanted to work for MYSELF!
  • I love photos and stories. I realized I could organize my stuff like I never could have with scrapbooking (and for those that have never done anything at all you'll luv this even MORE!)
  • I wanted to find a group of women...powerful, passionate, women to surround myself with and become friends with.
  • My passion for being a teacher was put on hold, and this became my outlet through the I'm An Author Children's Writing Program...I know I'm making a difference not just for my family and future generations, but for other families in my community.
We're confident you'll fall in love with all that we're doing...with the founders, the other consultants, storytelling and all the ways it will open opportunities for your family. Help us get the word out and ride the wave Cherish Bound is creating!

Drum roll please.....
  • I'm giving away ONE FREE, no obligation, Cherish Bound business kit!
  • $99 kit worth over $250!
  • You will be the next Cherish Bound consultant.
  • You'll automatically have a 20% discount on all publishing and products.
  • You'll have access to Cherish Bound as a consultant, the publishing center and can run your own business.
  • Cherish Bound does not have monthly or quarterly financial quotas!
  • You can choose to run your business as a hobbyist or aspire to be a national leader with me!
Whatever your passion, it's up to you....but I'm giving away a business!

So how do you win a Cherish Bound business...it's easy!

If you are giving it away, I'll take it!!! :) Will post about it with link on my blog by Monday...leaving for the weekend. Thanks for the chance!

Barbara said...

I want this! I've been seriously thinking about joining for awhile now, very seriously since meeting you a few weeks ago! I already run a photo related business and I think this would be a perfect fit, funny how although I run a business about preserving memories through photographs, I have a MESS of photos (thousands) sitting around I have yet to scrap or organize, or get into a "sharing" capacity, so this will be personal and a great additional to my existing business. I love the idea of the "story" part, since pictures can only tell you so much and this is something I need to work on. I'm looking to add another dimension to my business so I can continue to stay home with my kids as they get older and going "back to work outside the home" start looming on the horizon.

Nicole said...

I think Cherish Bound would be the perfect business for me! I love digital scrapbooking and I love the fact that with Cherish Bound you can create photo books so quickly and then order multiple copies of the same book! Thanks for the opportunity to win a business kit!

wordsforliving said...

Wait! - don't leave me out! I'd like to win it because I'm working EXTREMELY hard for my family!

Courtney said...

I would love to win. I've been looking for a legitimate work at home opportunity doing something I love. And I love working with photos and creating photobooks. So it sounds like it would be a perfect match.

Lolli said...

What exciting news!! Count me in! I have a passion for the photos and particularly the stories that go along with them. I was considering looking into being a consultant, but I don't have the extra cash right now, with my husband working on a start up company. This would be perfect!

Lolli said...

I follow you!

Lolli said...

OK--I tweeted about it here:

chelsea said...

Well I would love the ability to work from home! Right now I just work party time away...but the capability to be able to bring in even more income so we could get out of debt would make my life so much easier! Also I love scrapbooking, but have only done it the old fashion way thus far.

I am now a follower!
I did a post on my blog!

Hayley said...

Why I want this?? I have always been a big paper scrapper, but I love the idea of focusing on your life stories as part of your memory keeping.....I really want to start focusing on that too. I've joined your 2009 Family Yearbook Challenge, but haven't even started yet! I need some encouragement, and this would be a great umph for me!! I posted on my blog, too!

Megan said...

I would love to find out more about this promising opportunity! I would also love to be able to bring in a little extra income and to continue to stay home with my sweet little guy. I also want to find out how to take the pictures of my grandparents and fit them in with their story. This sounds like an amazing opportunity to find out how to do that.

Megan said...

Wow, what an awesome giveaway. I would love to win this not only for myself, but for friends and family. I know a ton of people having new babies and that would definitely enjoy this product. I am also a SAHM, so this would help me out.

Jennifer said...

I followed your link from Mormon Mommy Blogs. I've always enjoyed looking through family photos, journaling and reliving the memories attached to those photos and words. This business is a great combination of both. This would also be a great way to finally earn an income after 2 years of unemployment and taking on the role of single motherhood. I've looked over your website and am very interested in joining the team. This package would be a great help not only financially but provide a confidence boost in talents that I posses that have been dormant. I would so love to win. I'll be posting about this on my blog. Thanks for putting it out there!

karenraye said...

This is such a great giveaway. I have already posted about it on my blog. I would love to try doing something I could do out of my home. I am disabled and don't get out a whole lot anymore. I write poetry and have been trying to get together information on publishing which I know almost nothing about.

wordsforliving said...

I'm a little confused about the update... currently I'm not sure how to come up with the funds to pay for a kit, so if I don't win, I don't know what I would do!

Tuckersmomi said...

This would be a great opportunity. I'm looking for something to supplement our income with all the budget cuts and a 5% pay cut to boot!
momconnection@yahoo.com

Dee said...

Wow, what a great opportunity! I'm always looking for ways to supplement my income and would love to one day be able to work from home. Even if I don't win, I'm definitely going to be checking into this a bit more!

Ali Murphy said...

I would love to win this business! I have been looking for the right oppurtunity, and this is an awesome one! It would be a dream to wake up every day and have the peace of mind that I could stay home every day with my children while earning an income doing something I love! It would be a dream come true!

Hi nice Blog.Mona Vie Juice products featuring an exclusive acai berry juice blend Home Based Business opportunity.

Dee Pavey said...

I would absolutely love to win this. I have considered this business for a long while, but have not had the money to get started.
I've always loved writing. My daughter and I participate in NaNoWriMo and I have written dozens of short stories. I haven't attempted to get published yet, though I've been told I should. I've been a scrapbooker for years and a genealogist since I was 16. Telling life stories is just something I do naturally. This business would be just an extension of me..of what I'm already doing. The best part would be helping others to do the same.

Dee Pavey said...

By the way, I will be blogging about this at MomKaboodle.com

Thanks a bunch for this opportunity.

Lee Ann said...

For some time I have been looking for a business that would be a great fit for myself and my family. I am a mommy to 4 and it seems that time just slips by so quickly. I realized this fully when my oldest turned 17 this January. When I went to the Cherish Bound website I saw so many ways that I could capture more of the memories and help others to do the same. With all that said I would love to win the free kit and give this opportunity and try.

Lee Ann said...

I tweeted about this :)

Thysis said...

Well you know originally that I met you online while I was looking for business for my fiance. We finally met at the Southern Women's Show and you have such a great personality. I do traditional scrapbooking, but I think that I could show alot of people how to save time and money with Cherished Bound. No more waisting gas running to Walgreens picking up prints. No more cutting out letters with cardstock and no more adhesive. I would love to show others how easy and less time consuming this product is. Also, do you know how many scrpabooks I have created that I wanted to give as gifts to multiple people? Ok. I guess that I have rambled on long enough. I would love to start a new business helping people tell their stories.

I'm also a mom of 5 and a teacher who is home with the kids now. I would love to help out my family with a business that I could fit into our schedule-one where I could still be home which is very important to me. I an very unorganized with pictures right now-haven't started the last three baby books-so I would be a good example!! I also don't think this is in my area yet-I have not heard of it-so it would be brand new.

Dawn said...

I'm following now!

wordsforliving said...

Tara,

I was already following on TWITTER before this post about the business giveaway, and then I realized that I wasn't following your blog. So... I wanted to make sure I get an entry for starting to follow your blog! I'm going now to blog about it... As you may know, I work EXTREMELY hard and I want to do the Cherish Bound business full throttle without all the internet advertising restrictions that I worry about now.

I had not heard of Cherish Bound until tonight and UBP. But...I think it is an important piece to the puzzle of reclaiming our heritage, our country, and our families. As a daughter, mom, sister, Nana, friend, and girlfriend, I know that I want to give my family this amazing gift. Thank you for the opportunity.

I am eager to get to know you through tweets. (I'm @carolelarkin)
