The Beginning

Barb Girson’s career began with Tupperware, working her home-based business part time, while teaching sales and marketing full time. She was not very successful at first. She made endless phone calls, experienced disappointments, felt uncomfortable and struggled. Barb did not recruit one person her first year. If you knew her then you would not have bet a dollar that she would have made it.

With reflection and determination, she made some crucial changes in her sales approach. She started to positively impact her growth and results when she realized the importance of tactical training and building stronger relationships. She developed successful systems and built her schedule to an average of 7-10 personal parties weekly. She maintained that schedule and top sales consistently for several years. She had become so booked that she shared the overflow of parties with the large team she recruited!

Barb was constantly recognized as a top manager, placing as high as # 2 in the nation out of 10,000 independent managers and 80,000 consultants. Tupperware, then, gave franchise opportunities to those managers who ranked regularly among the Top 50 nationwide, and Barb was one of the youngest ever offered a franchise.

Sticking to her recipe, Barb Girson led her multi-million dollar Tupperware franchise to the top 10% of franchises in North America by helping managers achieve national recognition in sales.

The Corporate Arena

Ready for a new challenge, Barb Girson joined the corporate arena for a decade to lead sales for direct selling party plan organizations.

She served as:

  • Vice President, General Manager for Knowledge Adventure developing market entry plans to launch a new distribution channel for their software.
  • National Sales Director for The Body Shop At Home leading the US sales force consisting of 500 leaders and 10,000 Consultants with $40+ Mil. Revenue.
  • Director of Field Sales for Discovery Toys in North America consisting of 500 leaders and 20,000 Consultants.

The corporate experience broadened her perspective and enhanced her skill set, yet she found herself craving the freedom and flexibility of entrepreneurship.
