As you may have seen in a recent post, my Norwex team, Team Aqua, had a spring retreat here in North Carolina. It was such an amazing opportunity to get together with this wonderful team of people who share passion for the Norwex Mission! When I moved my family down here to NC there were less than 100 consultants in the state. Now, there are over 1,500 consultants and we are growing every day. This really is the opportunity get in on the ground-floor of this amazing company!
One of the things we talked about at the retreat was sharing our gift. As a Norwex consultant, the best gifts I can give you is the opportunity to start your own business. Here are some frequently asked questions I get when people signup to become a Norwex consultant.
What Kind of Time Commitment Am I Making by Becoming a Norwex Consultant? This is a great question. You always want to understand what kind of commitment you are making before signing on to any “job”. The best part about this “job” is that you make your own hours. You can do this, part time, full time, or go big time. This is truly up to you and how much time you have to give.
How Much Does It Cost To Become A Norwex Consultant? This is one of my favorite questions! People who have worked other consulting jobs are shocked to hear that becoming a Norwex Consultant is FREE! We do not want half of your life savings and your first born, we just want your passion for the business and products. You pay the $10 shipping cost and your Starter Kit remains free when you sell at least $2000 in retail product in your first 90 days. On average, that happens with just 4 parties. If you don’t meet the $2000 in 90 days, Norwex charges you $200 for your Consultant Starter Kit, which is less that the retail value of the kit. The best part is, with a typical US party averaging around $600 in sales, you could earn $210, which would pay for your kit after one party! Talk about a risk free investment!

Why Should You Signup under Me? There are lots of companies and people to signup under, so why pick me? One thing that I love most about this business is the connections that we make along the way. As your Norwex “goto”, I will help your business succeed. When you first start out, we can do phone calls and emails with you to help you get your business up and running. We also have group meetings here in North Carolina where you can connect with other local consultants. Not in NC? That’s ok too. You will have access to a website my private team training website that I had built that anyone in my downline has fee access to. We also have a HUGE Team Aqua Facebook group that has over 5,000 consultants. This group is an amazing asset to the Team Aqua members because it’s full of amazing advice. We have consultants in every state in the US as well as Canada. Overall, the most important thing is that we work together to help you get your business where you want it to be.
Do I have to meet a monthly sales goal? Norwex does not have a monthly sales goal requirement. We do have to have $250 RETAIL every six months to stay active, but you will not have fees to pay if you don’t hit a monthly requirement. Don’t want to place the $250 order (which is hard to do with so much AMAZING product!) you can reactivate by paying $19.99. The best part is, this is business is yours. You decide how much you put into it.
Is Norwex a pyramid scheme? No, Norwex is not a pyramid scheme. We are a direct sales/home party company similar to The Pampered Chef. Norwex retails products to its customers through independent consultants, such as myself, instead of advertising via medial outlets. The Norwex goal of creating safe havens is more easily achieved by having us show off these products to households all over the nation, rather than trying to market to the masses.
What Else Should I Know About Norwex Before Signing Up? Norwex is such an amazing company to work for. Debbie Bolton is such an amazing leader and truly cares about all of us. She is the first to say that she would love to be able to have a personal relationship with each and every person who works for Norwex. Norwex really does live by their core values, trust, integrity and respect. As Norwex has succeeded throughout the years, they have given back to us, as consultants, in so many ways. It is truly an amazing company to work for.
