Meet Tina Corr Lynn! She’s caring, crafty, dependable and she’s going to share Norwex with us at our January event!
Let's get to know her a bit! Here's a quick share from Tina.
I retired after 33 years of Federal service in February 2017. My retirement plan was to expand my home embroidery business, Nannie Annie's Embroidery. As much as I like to sew and embroider, after a year I missed being around people. In November 2017 I attended a Norwex home party. I had never heard of cleaning with just microfiber and water and was intrigued. After much consideration I signed up to be a Norwex sales consultant in January 2018, not so much for the money, but to educate others about the dangers of the chemicals in our homes and to meet new people.
I am now a Team Coordinator with four people on my team and am enjoying helping them succeed with their Norwex businesses. I put in approximately 15-20 hours a week preparing for parties, doing follow-up with customers, mentoring those on my team and researching products. I try hard to make my in-home parties fun as well as educational. I love watching a hostess' face when they realize how many Norwex products they have earned for free by hosting a party. Being a Norwex consultant is rewarding, fun and profitable.
My greatest professional achievement to date, with Norwex, has been to promote to Team Coordinator. I didn't join as a consultant with plans to promote. My goal for the next six months is to educate as many people as I can about reducing chemicals from their homes.
Being a Norwex consultant is actually my 3rd career. I was a contract specialist for the Navy for 33 years. I started my embroidery business 4 years ago and continue to take orders from customers who want items embroidered. The embroidery business was the other profession that I wanted to try. My plate is now full with embroidery and Norwex.
At this stage in my life, I do not have the responsibilities that those with full time jobs or children at home have, so I don't have work to keep my life balanced. What I do with Norwex is fun for me, so I don't consider it to be work. But to those younger women trying to keep a balance, I suggest making sure to take "me time" to keep yourself energized for others.
My husband and I are both homebodies and don't go out often. We attend Bethel Baptist Church where we are involved in many activities. We do enjoy eating at Sakae Thai and Sushi Bar located on Chatham Heights Road and my daughter, niece and I enjoy "girl time" at the Family Nails Care and Spa in the Woodlawn Shopping Center on Deacon Road.
www.Etsy.com; www.Fredericksburg.com, www.facebook.com and www.Norwex.biz are her top websites she visits daily.
I have already reached my retirement goal. Now I'm having too much fun with Norwex to retire again! Advice I have for ladies starting their own business is to read every word before you sign anything. Don't allow anyone to tell you what the fine print says.”
I am looking forward to being part of this event and providing information on how to turn homes into safe havens.
Tina, we are looking forward to getting to know you and Norwex better!
