Welcome to Usborne Books & More
I’ll be honest, when I started…I just wanted the BOOKS. For real. Did you see that kit?! It was love at first sight. Plus, it’s such a great deal! If you haven’t received your kit yet, you’re in for a treat. It will be arriving on your doorstep shortly. In the meantime, let’s get started! Lucky for you, there is a TON you can do to launch your business before your books arrive so there’s no need to wait!
We have developed simple, easy-to-follow, self-paced learning modules to get you off to a great start. You can get up to speed in short 5-10 minute blocks of time over the next 30 days. Or, if you prefer, just block off two hours and knock it all out at once.
These are the basics you need to know to get started. While there’s plenty more to learn beyond these simple steps, this is all you need to know to begin. Take it one step at a time. I’m right here cheering you on!
Becky’s Bonus Tip: I listen to training while in the car running errands, while kids are napping or in the evenings over a glass of wine and a bowl of popcorn.
Your To-Do List:
- Watch this short, 5-minute welcome video to get pumped up for your launch!
- Leave a comment introducing yourself and what you are MOST excited about.
- “Friend” your Sponsor and Team Leader. Feel free to add me, too!
- Identify how and when you’re going to fit in the tasks to complete your 30 Day Launch Plan.
- Download the 30 Day Launch Workbook.
Trying to complete the training so that I can launch. So excited but also feel some scary thought that I might not complete this whole book. I pray for patience from my Leader and friends. So I am ready to go forward.
Hi everyone! My name is Jen Wilkosz and I live in Newington, CT. I’m a high school history teacher. I went to a Facebook party in September and immediately fell in love with the books but I was finishing my thesis for my second masters so I didn’t have the time to join. Now that my Masters is done, I’m so excited to share these books with people!
Hi Jen! Aren’t they the BEST?!
Hi everyone! I’m Lucia Rodriguez from San Antonio, Texas. I am a former elementary school teacher. I am super excited, but nervous all the same to start as an independent consultant. I am in LOVE with all the books that Usborne has and excited to share them with everyone I know.
Hi Lucia, we are so excited that you’ve joined this wonderful company! I agree, of course, the BOOKS are AMAZING!!!
Hi! I’m Veronica Huerta and I’m from West Covina, CA. I am super excited about learning to do book fairs, book drives and fundraisers. I am ready to give it my all!
Hi everyone! I’m Cassy from San Diego, California; and I took the plunge two days ago! I’m eagerly awaiting my “new consultant kit”, and I’m most excited about getting to sit down and check out these amazing books with my kiddos!
Cassy, so glad you’ve joined Usbourne! You are going to rock these first 30 days!!!
Hello, My Name is Ashley Harrington. I’m a single mom who is working 3 jobs and have signed up in hopes of quitting 2 of the jobs. Plus I’m recently engaged and have a wedding to pay for!
Congrats on joining Usbourne, welcome!!
Hi everybody ?
My name is Melissa Rackliff and I live in Sanford, Maine! I am so excited to begin this journey, and of course to build my kiddos library with tons of awesome books! 🙂
Why am I just finding this? haha better late than never.
I am retired, living in Saratoga Springs NY with my husband. I am the (cool) grandmother to 6 grandkids who all love books.
I was invited to an Usborne Facebook Party and fell in love with the books. Joining was a no-brainer. I travel often so this fits into my life perfectly. My goal is to make some extra money, keep my grands interested in reading and do something to keep my mind active.
My challenge is that I am not as computer literate as most of you younger ladies. Trying to get past that hump.
I am excited to see how I can grow this business and make it mine.
Thank you for your insights.

I’m so excited to jump into the program! I am a pediatrician, a mommy, and a big nerd who loves books! I’m so excited to be a part of getting kids into reading with interesting, fun stories and activities. I have no sponsor or team lead so I’m a little lost right now. Thanks for putting this training together.

I have been with Usborne Books and More for 12 weeks I’m just outside my incentive period and I am so excited to learn and grow with the company.

That’s fantastic!! Woohoo! Welcome, Vanessa!
My name is Erika Hall and I am a full time working single mom! I run several chains of small businesses for one company and I have 14 stores across the state of Indiana which is also my home! I loved the impact that Usborne books had on my son SO much that after hosting my own party and six months of ordering I decided I needed a way to pay for all this education! My son is 5 and I work over 50 hours a week so it will be a huge challenge to manage my time wisely but I am up for it! Thanks so much for the training and support.
Wow! You’re a busy mama, Erika! I love the saying: If you want to get it done, give it to a busy person. Time management definitely takes some work. The best thing about UBAM is that you can scale up and back as life happens… because, it will! 🙂 Welcome to the team, Erika!
Hello! My name is Marita and I live in Urbana, IL…after three years in Canada, a semester in Paris, a year in Germany, 11 years in Connecticut and a decade in Colorado. I’m from Saint Louis and am back in the Midwest for the first time in 25 years, now married with two small children. I was introduced to Usborne books in Calgary when my son was very small and think they are fabulous. I’m hoping to have some fun with this new adventure and make a bit of money to help us out. Thank you for the training videos. I am grateful for the help getting started!
I should also say that I used to teach preschool and am getting back into that world this autumn with an assistant teaching job at a local cooperative nursery school. Being involved with Usborne will fit into my current life very well…I hope!
Sounds like a perfect fit, Marita!
I love that you can find our books pretty much anywhere in the world. I’ve been following a bunch of Canadian Usborne girls on Instagram! 🙂 Thanks for joining in on the training!
