I’m Pam Altendorf, and I live in rural Goodhue, Minnesota, with my husband, Kevin, and our five children, who range in age from elementary school to college.
I didn’t set out to become one of the top sales executives at Norwex when I got my first look at the company’s green cleaning products in 2008. At the time, I was a stay-at-home mom recovering from treatment of renal cell carcinoma and was just really interested in the concept of removing all harmful chemicals from her home.
I initially joined Norwex, thinking I could sell its products very part-time to get the company’s discounts. However, my goals changed only one month later when my husband was laid off from work. That’s when I sprang into action, teaching myself much about how to build a business.
For me, Norwex has been a life-changing experience. In just a few, short years, I am honored to have become a leader of one of the company’s most successful and collaborative sales teams. I have been on the top sales, recruiting and leader lists with Norwex; have earned incentive trips from the company; and have been asked to serve as a trainer and motivational speaker during its biggest events. However, where I really enjoy focusing my time and energy is on the management and development of my “Green Team,” which is now comprised of more than 9,000 Norwex consultants living across the United States. I have helped to promote more than 200 other consultants to leadership roles within the company.
I want to help you, too.
I have developed systems and tools the Norwex consultants I guide can duplicate easily. Through a secure website, I provide exclusively for Green Team members, I deliver an array of resources — including online discussion forums, event calendars and a work-at-your-own-pace learning platform — to help Norwex consultants build their careers and meet their goals.
Even if you’re not interested in selling Norwex as a business opportunity, you might learn what I did: Joining the team results in consultant discounts on premium products and provides great information about the benefits of green cleaning. My passion for Norwex is centered around helping others embrace a healthier lifestyle through healthier cleaning. As a cancer survivor, I especially understand the importance of ridding a household of toxic — and potentially toxic — chemicals. So, join the Green Team today.
And also know that the fundamentals of effective, home-based sales are largely the same. I am a highly experienced sales consultant who welcomes the opportunity to help home-based sales professionals working in other industries develop winning business strategies, too. Contact me to find out how I could help you, too.

Became the first person in Norwex corporate history to “double promote” to the company’s highest leadership level, Senior Vice President Sales Leader. Because of outstanding sales and representative recruitment, Pam skipped the leadership level of Executive Vice President and headed straight to the top. She credits members of the Green Team with helping her achieve that career milestone.
