Bridgette Paine is a 22-year-old mom who turned to direct selling to be home with her baby. She joined her company in January 2018 while her husband was deployed. One year later she has built a team that is doing more than $500,000 in monthly sales.

Thanks to her home business, they no longer stress about bills and get to enjoy being a full-time family.—J. G.
