Anyone else feeling a bit deflated now all the excitement of the Olympics is over? What will we do with those extra hours in the day that we never knew we had?! Well I for one will be doing a few more Neal’s Yard parties. If you’re a recessionista with no treats planned in the near future (or if you just love fab smellies!) why don’t you consider hosting one? It really is a great deal. First you get to choose from a selection of exclusive gifts (not available in the shops) just for holding the party; at the minute I have Sensual Jasmine Body Cream, Honey and Orange Facial Scrub or Lavender Shampoo available. I’ll do tailored mini facials or rejuvenating hand treatments for your guests; then if they spend £150 or over between them you get some free and half price shopping too – so in effect you get your friends to pay for your organic goodies! There’s more info here, or just give me a shout to book a date. It’s a fun summer night in – Pimms optional!

Maybe you’ve returned from holiday dreading the thought of going back to work… or with kids starting school, looking for a part-time job? If you’re a student at college or university you may be looking for a way to earn some extra money. Why not consider joining my Neal’s Yard team? I’d love to have some more people on board before the Christmas rush starts – yes, it will be here before we know it! For the month of August only you can join Neal’s Yard as a consultant for just £45 (usual price £95) and receive a starter kit worth around £120. Where else can you start your own business for as little as that? The kit contains the multi-award winning Beauty Sleep Concentrate, which is worth £30 alone.

It’s a great way to do some discounted Christmas shopping yourself too!  Selling Neal’s Yard products is also a fabulous add-on for any therapy business – use them in your treatments and your customers will soon start to buy them! If you’re interested please feel free to contact me any time for a chat, or if you can’t wait to sign up you can do it here. Starting your own home-based business could be your 2012 challenge!
