Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re absolutely right! And in this episode, I am so excited to introduce a very special person who absolutely CAN run a successful direct sales business… Cassie Dodds! 💗💗💗
Cassie is a busy mum of two and a multiple award-winning stylist with the Australian Direct Sales company – Lorraine Lea.
2020 was a year of change for most businesses and just like you, overnight everything she knew and had learned over the past 10 years in her business came unravelled when she could no longer operate her business in the traditional “party plan” format. Instead of crumbling in a heap, she invested time & money in learning how she could pivot her traditional party plan business to the online space and as a result, she grew her personal sales by almost double on her previous year and a team growth of $1 million.
Cassie will be sharing with us today some of her top tips on how she makes parties work… and how she got to the point where she’s doing 10 parties per week and got booked out for the next five months!
Not only did the pivot to the online world grow her business (and income) exponentially but it gave her a lifestyle she could only dream of, allowing her to work from absolutely anywhere from any device of her choosing.
If you’re a direct seller, a party planner, or a network marketer, this episode is for you! And if you’re not, maybe this is your nudge 🤗

2020 was a year of great challenges for most businesses and Cassie was not an exception. Almost overnight, everything she knew and had learned over the past 10 years in her direct sales business came unravelled when she could no longer operate her business in the traditional “party plan” format.
