Title within Norwex: Senior Executive Sales Leader
Where to find me online: www.melindadecker.norwex.biz
How long I have been with the company: 2 ½ years
Where I live now, and where I am originally from: Clinton, Illinois
How I started selling Norwex: Like a lot of Norwex fans, I was really just looking for more free products and discounts. When I was offered a “Join for Free” kit, that made the decision to become a consultant even easier. I thought I might have only a couple of Norwex parties — but here I am.
What has surprised you most in your Norwex journey? I remain amazed that I turned my want for free products into a business that is now earning me more than my full-time job.
The most difficult challenge I have faced to get to where I am within Norwex — and how I have overcome it: Rallying for sales promotions and to reach personal and team goals can be super stressful — although the effort is also very rewarding when it happens! I count on team motivation to help keep me and others going. To maintain engagement and momentum, I keep up strong presence on my team’s online discussion forums, and I try to be in contact with my personal team members and sales leaders regularly.
The one piece of advice I have for a beginner consultant that I wish I’d had — or had taken more to heart: Work for your event bookings at every party — but without being that “pushy person” — because just one party can change your whole calendar! I can trace 87 Norwex events to three of the first parties I booked. It’s amazing.
How I balance selling for Norwex and time for myself, my family and my friends: I mark specific days on my calendar that are for my family only — and no work. I stick to that schedule. I also work a lot on my Norwex business when everyone else goes to bed.
My favorite Norwex product: Body cloths because they’re the Norwex products that are used every day at my house. Even if we don’t clean anything else that day, we are using body cloths.
My favorite themed party to sell at and why: Any party I can add holiday themes to is fun and allows me to think more creatively. I especially like Halloween (that has always been my favorite holiday), Christmas — and even celebrations of spring cleaning.
How I like to spend my free time: I love visiting flea markets, traveling and listening to audio books on my way to Norwex parties (who has time to actually read books?! The Girl on the Train is a recent favorite, by the way.). I also love traveling, movie nights and swimming with my family.
