Organiser of the Month - Vikki MacDonald

31st May 2020

The past few months have undoubtedly proved a challenge for us all as we've adjusted to new environments and working styles. Our May Organiser of the Month, Vikki MacDonald, has channelled her natural positivity to overcome the obstacles posed by Covid-19 and then some – her division has just enjoyed the best month in its history!

Before the current situation unfolded, Vikki was already achieving wonderful things with her business. Take a look at her success story on the Direct Selling Agency's website.

We asked Vikki just how she has found opportunity in challenge over recent weeks, drawing on her division's fabulous ethos to yield fantastic results:

"After almost five years of running my book business, I can hand-on-heart say that it has changed my life!

From a shy, unconfident mum-of-three, Usborne has allowed me to grow not only a business to be proud of but also myself personally. I'm "Vikki" again – not just a mum and wife – and I'm positive and loving life.

Being able to share this experience with others so that they can grow and reach their own goals is so special and my favourite part of the business.

As it became apparent the country was going into lockdown, my division's ethos of positive mindset, personal development and a supportive community ensured we all maintained an "I can" attitude.

Focusing on how we can best support parents and get much-needed books into the hands of children has remained our top priority with huge success – our sales have smashed all previous monthly volumes.

We have almost doubled in numbers as a division since the beginning of April. Supporting so many new Organisers to not only share the books but do something for them during the pandemic really makes my heart sing!"

Congratulations, Vikki, and thank you for sharing your story with us. A June new title of your choice will be on its way to you shortly.
