| Whether its direct sales businesses such as Arbonne, Discovery Toys, Mary-Kay, Pampered Chef or a business we started from scratch, everyone struggles finding the right way to market their business. Many of us moms barely have time to think, let alone market our business. On the other hand, if you don’t market yourself, you won’t have a business to market. |
