Your Independent Consultant

As a mother of five It has always been important to have dinner together as a family, yet at that time of night, kids need help with homework, my husband is coming home from work and I am tired! To the RESCUE is a product called Thrive!! Freeze dried food that is convenient, delicious, healthy, with no preservatives and has a shelf life of 25 years! YES I cook with Thrive  DAILY!
     No more chopping and no more waste!! I LOVE IT! And I have found that being a consultant has helped me gather food for my home store, make an extra house payment every month and contribute to the charity Thriving Nations that Thrive Life founded. It is very fulfilling. I am also able to stay home with my kids except for 1 event a week where I can mingle, socialize and share my knowledge of this amazing company!
  If you feel passionate about gathering a home store for your family and want tasty, convenient, healthy food that you WANT to rotate, then contact me about being a consultant, having a party, or ordering!
