Fifteen amazing moms from 14 direct sales businesses will be setting up shop at bevo offering you each the chance to browse all of the products they have to offer, win prizes, earn free stuff by booking parties, and pick their brains about how you can also work from home (if this is something that interests you) in a non-pressure relaxed atmosphere.

 The Consultants


Samantha Williams of Athena’s will be joining us for this event. The Athena’s Home Novelties Mission is to empower women and men down the path of sexual education in the safe, comfortable environment of their own homes. They sell spa products, massage products and romance enhancing products ranging from creams to novelties. Samantha chose Athena’s for her business because as a woman, a wife, a lover and a mom – she values feeling good, feeling sexy, feeling powerful and feeling confident. Her goal as a Goddess is to share that beautiful gift with others in a fun, safe and educational way. Athena’s was also a great choice for Samantha because of the time, energy and resources the company puts into their consultants. From her peers to her team leader to the Founder and Shee-E-oh, different individuals have taken time out of their day to train her, check on her business, motivate her and challenge her. Samantha has grown as a public speaker, as a businesswoman, as an educator and as a leader.


Kerry Armstrong and Brooke Cote of Beautycounter will be joining us for this event. Beautycounter’s mission is to get safe products into the hands of everyone. There are about 10,000 chemicals commonly found in personal care products – only 10% of those chemicals have safety data. The US has not passed a federal law to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products since 1938. The European Union has spent the past two decades banning or restricting more than 1,300 ingredients – the U.S. has only banned 11 to date. Even more troubling, chemicals linked to breast cancer, learning disabilities, infertility, and other health issues are allowed in the products we use every day. We deserve better. At Beautycounter, they’re doing something about it. Beautiful products, made safe.


Deirdre Fenderson of India Hicks will be joining us for this event. India Hicks is a spirited lifestyle brand. Their exclusive collections of beauty and accessories are inspired by India’s British heritage, her island life, and some madcap daydreams. And that is just the start. India resides on a tiny island in the Bahamas, and with her significant other, raised 5 children without the fanfare of the life she herself grew up in… all the while keeping her feet firmly rooted in the sand. From here she has built a company that encourages women to stand on their own two feet, and to build a business in their own time, on their own terms. She is entirely sincere in her mission to create a tribe of entrepreneurial women.  As you can probably tell, her message resonated with Deirdre, so Deirdre decided to dive in headfirst and join her on this crazy journey. As a wife and mother she could not resist joining a brand that empowers women to be the best while looking and feeling their best  As Vermont’s first India Hicks ambassador Deirdre can’t wait to share the collection of lifestyle products with all of you.  They are exceptionally crafted but very affordable. India dares each ambassador to be her strongest, most creative, most authentic self and To live an extraordinary life – whatever it throws your way. Fellow mothers and neighbors join Deirdre on her India Hicks journey and live an extraordinary life!

They share a deep belief that living a happy life comes from always keeping in mind what truly matters: love, faith, family, friendships, and adventure. Meaghan became a designer with KEEP after falling in love with the product and realizing what a great chance this was to get in on a brand new, rapidly growing company. There are only 14,000 KEEP designers (other popular companies have millions!), so this is a true ground-floor opportunity. As a mom to two little boys, her goal is to be able to quit her full-time job and be a SAHM so she can be there for them all day every day!

Noonday partners with Artisan businesses in vulnerable communities in 12 different countries to help develop these businesses through fair trade, empowering these businesses to make a difference in their local communities. Jennifer heard about this business last fall and got so excited to be a part of creating a local market and connecting like-minded women here in Vermont. She saw the Artisans share their stories of how dignified and sustainable jobs were empowering women and helping strengthen children and families and she could relate!

Usborne books are the most exciting, engaging, and educational books on the market today. 30 years ago Peter Usborne pioneered a new generation of books that prove that it is possible to create books that compete with the vast media that attracts children today.

They are high quality, innovative, lavishly-illustrated and best of all they are the books kids love to read. With almost 2000 bright colorful and fun titles covering a wide variety of subjects, we promise there is something for everyone to enjoy! Karri is a wife and a mom who works full time at UVMMC. After attending my first UBAM party, she was hooked on the books! She just couldn’t get enough. She decided to become a consultant so she could make a little extra income on her own time. She wanted something flexible, where she could set her own hours and how often she “worked.” She also has the benefits of earning prizes, trips and great friendships. On top of all that, she is helping to promote literacy.
