My daughter, Alia, is a state finalist in the National American Miss pageant in California. She will be competing in San Jose in June for the state title in the Teen category and hopefully move onto the national competition in November. You can read all about NAMISS and Alia here, and to thank her sponsors we will be posting interviews about their businesses. We are SO appreciative of the support Alia has received from clients and friends that want to help her achieve her dream.
The second interview is with Kimberly Bolton who is with a direct sales company whose product is always with me as I’m out and about – In a Pikle. I’ll let Kimberly take it from here! THANKS KIMBERLY!
What is the name of your business and what do you do?
I am an Independent Representative of “In A Pikle” which is a direct sales, party plan business that launched October 8th, 2013.
I received my first “In A Pikle” bag as a gift from the first launch party in October of 2011. One of the co-founders is a friend of mine from the town I grew up in. At that time the only way to purchase was direct from the company. I had been using my Pikle and promoting their business for a couple of years when I found out they were going to move to direct sales. It was an easy decision because it was a product that I believe in and something I was already promoting.
How does your business make a difference for your customers/ clients?

A Pikle is a compact organizer, when purchased with the starter pack comes with 20 convenient items from hand sanitizer spray, a mirror with dental floss built in, safety pin to spot remover pen and much more!
