Make $ designing inspirational quotes.

Everyday as I walk downstairs I see a quote adhered to my family wall.  It reads, CHERISH YESTERDAY, DREAM TOMORROW, LIVE TODAY.   This constant reminder dissuades me from pettiness and inspires action in my everyday life.   Everyone has a favorite quote they live by but many times we can't remember what it is. Uppercase Living is a company that sells decorative quotes so people can transform their spaces into a reflection of themselves.  It is also a business you can make money your way.  I interviewed Wendy Pierson (WP), a representative for Uppercase Living to learn more about the opportunity.

30daysof: What is the name of your business?  
WP: Uppercase Living~vinyl expressions that are easily applied to walls or many other items to decorate your home.  You can very easily design your own personalized expression.  A great way to earn free product is to host an Open House.

30daysof: Why did you get started in this business? 
WP: I fell in love with the product and I knew I would regret it if I didn't promote it.  It is beautiful, fun, easy and makes your home more "you".

30daysof: Is there a start up cost? Describe the start up cost and what you need to do to qualify for promotion or revenues, trips, cars?  
WP: There is a start up cost.  Right now UL is offering the starter kits for only $99.  There is a requirement of $300 in quarterly sales to stay active.  It has never been a problem for me to meet this goal.  There is a 25% instant commission and also other promotions throughout the year including a cruise for those who are very motivated.

30daysof:  How do you stay motivated? Books, quotes, people who inspire, etc... 
WP: I am pretty much word of mouth as I do this part-time and for a little extra income....and fun too!  I usually try to have 1 party a month and generally get bookings from other parties.

30daysof:  What is your favorite product or the best selling product (service) you offer?  
WP: I love all the products.  They are great for every room in the house and also make great gifts.....Teacher Appreciation Week is coming soon!!

30daysof: What is your biggest challenge in marketing your business? 
WP:  I am not a go getter.....I prefer to let the business come to me from word of mouth.  I don't like to be pushy.

30daysof:  How do you get paid? 
WP: I get paid directly from the customer and then put the order on my credit card, minus the instant commission.  This has worked very well.  I have a credit card for my business so it is not linked to my personal account.  UL also offers a way for the customer to order directly off the demonstrators website and also for the demonstrator to accept credit cards.  There is a fee for these services.

30daysof: Is there room for advancement (growth)?  
WP: Yes.  There are several levels up the ladder of success.

30daysof: Who is your competition? 
WP: Other companies that sell the same products or services? Why did you choose yours?  None that compare to Uppercase Living.  UL offers more designs, more colors, and amazing customer service.  Also UL offers the customer a way to easily design their own custom expressions.

30daysof: How can they contact you or learn more about the company?  
WP: My website is or my # is (951) 858-8377.  The catalog can be viewed on my website.  Contact me for any qestions or for any orders.
