Book Description

Jan. 31 2012 Families in Focus
On any given night in living rooms across America, women gather for a fun girls' night out to eat, drink, and purchase the latest products--from Amway to Mary Kay cosmetics. Beneath the party atmosphere lies a billion-dollar industry, Direct Home Sales (DHS), which is currently changing how women navigate work and family.Drawing from numerous interviews with consultants and observations at company-sponsored events, "Paid to Party" takes a closer look at how DHS promises to change the way we think and feel about the struggles of balancing work and family. Offering a new approach to a flexible work model, DHS companies tell women they can, in fact, have it all and not feel guilty. In DHS, work time is not measured by the hands of the clock, but by the emotional fulfillment and fun it brings.

2.0 out of 5 stars I expected more. Feb. 25 2014
By Charlesetta Nganga - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is more about the history and origin of the home party and direct marketing business. I had expected it to be more about how to actually set up a home party, from the time one arrives at the Host's home, until one wraps up for the evening. It was not about that at all. It was more of a book from a historical perspective. It was far different than what I had expected.
