Are you ready to join my team and be a world changer?
Joining Trades of Hope as a compassionate entrepreneur was a happy accident.
I had never given the origins of my accessories a second thought until one day when I purchased some super cute, trendy jewelry from a lovely lady in my neighborhood at $2.50 a pop. She told me she makes great money selling it and it got me thinking, if that’s great money for her, how much is it costing the factories to make this stuff? How is this a sustainable business? Someone must be getting the short end of the stick, right?
I did some extensive Googling and never did find a clear answer to my question, but what I did uncover was the amazing company Trades of Hope.
Literally as soon as I laid eyes on the gorgeous jewelry, I was in love.
Through each sale, women are helped out of the sex trade, slums, sweat shops, and extreme poverty. They are able to send their children to school, put a roof over their heads, and put food on their tables.
I had it in my heart that my next journey would be one that not only made me money for my own family, but lifted up other women and their families, and Trades of Hope came into my life at just the right time.
I waited by the mailbox like a little girl waiting for a chain letter (uh, did I just date myself there? Anyway.)
The box arrived and I was not disappointed.
What comes in the Trades of Hope Compassionate Entrepreneur kit?
When you join Trades of Hope, you are called a “Compassionate Entrepreneur,” and you spend $99.00 on the kit.
The kit is called the “Traveler Kit,” and you get a ton of bang for your buck!
I was impressed with all of the details and helpful business supplies that were included. There was a warm welcome letter, cue cards to walk me through what to say at parties, catalogs and sales receipts, thank you cards, invitations, display cards, lovely stands and pads for the jewelry, and even a cleaning cloth.
The actual products included:
- Indian Messenger Bag
- Thai Pearl Bracelet
- Warrior Cuff
- Peruvian Turquoise Earrings
- Inverted Capiz Earrings
- Halo Necklace
- Paisley Journal
- Easton Scarf
Each item comes in a sweet gold organza bag with a card in it telling you about the artisan group that crafted your item. I love knowing who made my jewelry, and I love seeing a photo of them. There is nothing more special than a human connection. The pieces themselves are beautiful, but the little photo and story adds a warm, fuzzy sparkle to purchasing from – and becoming a part of – the company for me!
Real talk moment: I will not candy coat the truth. I was very gun shy to join a direct sales company. Like ever, ever again. I had just gotten off my own crazy roller coaster ride with one, and didn’t want to get back in line for another ride. But Trades of Hope has continually impressed me with their transparency, their ethics, the creative freedom they have given me with my business and the quality of their product. They are members of both the Direct Sellers Association and the Fair Trade Federation.
