What they say

“I have had wonderful success since day one. I paid back my initial investment after my first arts and craft show. I then went on to finish the year ahead of my projections. The books sell pretty easily and most customers order more than one at a time. I am a mother with two young children and I love the flexibilty and income I can generate in a short period of time. It’s also a lot of fun. With this type of product, I have noticed the customers are so upbeat and excited about their purchases. I have received many calls to thank me for the product and told me stories of how much children loved the books. Thank you again for your product and support! ” – Katie

” I Wanted to let you know I participated in a show this past weekend and it was a HUGE success. We sold 73 books Saturday and 43 on Sunday for a grand total of 116 books and orders for 60 CD downloads! As recommended during the training, I did upsell and this is magic! I was not expecting such a success and learnt many new technics to do even better next time.  The customers LOVED the books and said they order more from my site.  Thanks for your patience and spending so much time coaching me, but results are showing!”Alisson

” After looking at different businesses, I decided on My World and I. As a single mother of a 4 year old, I wanted something that I could also have my daughter understand and have fun with. My world and I allowed me the freedom to maximize my time and to earn much needed additional income. Taking it to any baby show is a guaranteed success. ” – Kimberly

“Thank you in assisting me in getting started in my new business creating personalized books. Things are happening so fast! I did a show this weekend at a fair! The response was overwhelming. I gave out over 1,500 of the well-designed and colorful brochures: two schools approached me as they wanted to get the CreaKidz Platform! Almost immediately I started getting calls for more orders. Keep up the good work and keep those new products coming!” Ayodele

“I could describe my experience at MWI distributor as fun, rewarding, instructive!  It has been a very fast learning curve as all was new to me.  Not easy at first but thanks to the training and products that sell very easily, I now can fully explore my new passion for selling personalised books and get extra income from it and it keeps growing faster and faster as I now have a large customer base.  I also love working with School selling the CreaKidz platform and get so many positive feedback!”Jen

“I chose My world and I as I needed quick extra income while keeping my part-time job.  I love that I can work when I want and get immediate income from my actions.  I also appreciate the coaching provided through the online training platform, webinars and I can call the MWI team whenever I need advice.  I hesitate a long time before taking my decision but am very happy  as I get regular income from it each months.  At first, you get out what you put into it but after few months, it grows exponentially as customer engagement is amazing !” Chris W.

« My husband had recently lost his job and we were both afraid. The extra income we generated helped us to make it through one of our worse financial times. Thank you for being there when we needed you most. »– Paul and Lynette

« This is my first year with My world and I. It is great to have a product that not only makes great profit but is also very fun to sell. I am still amazed at the reaction I get from my customers the first time they see the products. I look forward to many more great years of selling. » – Ryan

« My mother and I decided to run the business together and have been with My World and I for 3 years now. It has been great to have something different that not everyone else is trying to sell. In all the shows and markets we have been to in our area and products sell easilly.  The collection has increased a lot since we started which is amazing. Our turnover and my income keep growing thanks to my existing customers. Thank you! » – Sue
