Discover a business opportunity with Usborne

1st April 2016

At Usborne Books at Home, we offer you the chance to open your own 'pop-up bookshop', selling award-winning children's books at parties, schools and other events at times that suit you and your family. Not only that, Usborne provides you with a platform to build a team, be your own boss and enjoy increased earnings.

You can join this thriving community of book lovers and business builders for just £38*.

What can it do for me?

"I really feel like I have the best of both worlds. I have a successful business that can work around my children; I never miss pick-ups, drop-offs, school plays or sports days." - Jennie Moore, Independent Usborne Organiser

Becoming an Independent Usborne Organiser provides a really fantastic business opportunity. It's fun, flexible, family-centred and requires no previous selling experience. All you need is a passion for Usborne books, a little bit of self belief and a will to share that passion with others.

Once signed up, you will be sent a gorgeous selection of books and stationery (worth over £150!) and have support from a Mentor (and often a wider team) from the beginning. There are also lots of exciting incentives to motivate you with our Passport to Success programme - a collection of milestones that will help you achieve the business success you want, step-by-step.

We can offer that important work-life balance, whilst giving you the chance to be your own boss and aim for lots of lovely rewards - all for just £38.

Our company vision is to 'provide everyone with the opportunity to write a better story for their family'. How that story unfolds is up to you.

I'd like to become an Organiser, how do I join?

Get in touch today to find out more about becoming an Usborne Organiser or find a Mentor near you. You can also hear from some of our existing Organisers in the video below.
