Just a little bit about me and my journey with Paparazzi. When I "went" to my first party I still had a very tight budget and saw so many pieces that I loved and I could afford Paparazzi.I was going through some health issues and was worried about an income to help my family along. It was then that I knew was going to sign with Paparazzi. It took some time for me to sign with the company. Paparazzi was the best decision I could ever make in my life!I have had parties booked everyday since I started. All from my home not having to leave the house. Within four months, I was able to leave my full time job and start Paparazzi full-time! This gives me more time with my blended family. It may sound like I haven't had a day off but after I settled into a format that worked for me. It was then I realized the most important thing. I liked making others feel happy and by giving them the opportunity. So I thank you for being apart of my journey.

I started my Paparazzi business as a way to support my family. My husband and I were both laid off from the casino we both worked at, and desperately needed some kind of income. So we used our tax money to invest in just a few kits, and immediately wished we had gotten the big starter kit. Lol Since then, a year and three months ago, Paparazzi has changed our lives, for the better. I get to help support my family, without sacrificing time with them. I have made some awesome friends, and met some amazing people. I am so glad my husband and I decided to take the plunge!!

My Paparazzi story started simple. I met a lady at a vendor fair who had this cute jewelry and it was nickel free.. I'm very allergic to nickel so I was skeptical. I bought a piece and I could wear it, so I figured I can wear it, I definately can sell it!! So I jumped in full force. Since I joined, i am a much more confident woman and my self esteem has improved greatly! Since then I was able to not go back to my real job and I do Paparazzi full time!

My papa story. I started this as a way to earn some extra money and see if it would actually work. Almost a year later I have helped pay some medical bills, put gas in the car, buy groceries, clothes for my daughter and currently helping to pay for a vacation we will be taking in August. Each time I think I'm not really making a lot of money with Paparazzi I have a party and it knocks it out of the park and I am amazed!

My papa story is in the making! Having only started in late February, the last 2.5 months have been nothing short of amazing! I joined an online party in January and after shopping 7 more after that I said to myself 'why am I not jumping on board this train?' I signed up and have been full steam ahead from day 1! My goal was to make a little extra $ to help pay off some of the lingering debt my husband and I have been trying to pay off for the last few years but just hadn't been able to do. Along the way, we had our amazing 4 year old and then last year we were blessed with twin sons! Needless to say our 2 full time jobs were just not giving me the extra $ I wanted to pay off the extra things I wanted to! Paparazzi is going to allow me to do just that!! Going into my 3rd month I have booked parties through mid June, just added my first team member, and am building relationships with some amazing people!!! My papa story is still being written but so far the beginning chapters are so exciting!

My story--I was already in a DS business networking on FB when I kept seeing Paparazzi. Never thought about it though, I was happy where I was. Things started slowing down with my then current business and I happened to run across an ad from my current sponsor, so I thought I'd inquire. I only signed with $40 and bought a few kits, thinking if it didn't work out, I wouldn't be out that much. Little did I know it was going to surpass what I was doing with my other business. I stopped that business, focused on Paparazzi and 2 years later am super excited about my business and am looking forward to helping my team of awesome girls reach their goals as well. Just wish I would have started sooner!

When I joined Paparazzi in June, I wasn't looking to add one more thing to my already hectic life!! I was managing an online maternity and children's store in my "spare" time! I manage a healthcare office, am a mother to a 2 year old and wife to a husband who works long hours. Needless to say I have a lot going on. When I learned about Paparazzi I researched it and knew there was something different about it than other direct sales company's. I've been in direct sales before but with all of the competition I was just "another one of those." Paparazzi has already proven to be different for me! I've only been apart of this amazing team for almost 1 year and am already seeing that getting started on the ground floor with a great company is not only going to be profitable long term but has been profitable thus far. Paparazzi products are as fabulous as the price tag! I'm so thankful that I made time to invest in such a great company. I've made many new friends from all over the United States that I would have never met otherwise and they are people that are truly friends and desire to help you succeed!

I started Paparazzi just as something "fun" to do when my little one started kindergarten without ever even having seen the jewelry in person. I just knew that I could afford $5 and I could offer it to my friends without feeling guilty about it. Little did I know how much I would truly love it and how my business would take off! I have now grown a fantastic team and am booked solid with parties. My favorite part is still seeing the smiles when I say "Yep, everything is just $5!". I am working this business every day and loving every minute! I am so excited to see where it will go from here!!

My Paparazzi story. I was on the internet and saw the Bling it on page. At the time I was a stay at home wife which never before getting married did I not work. We had just moved and we did not really know anyone. I was looking through the jewelry and something told me you can do this. So I talked to my mom and she said to go for it I will loan you the start up cost I think you will do good. So I ordered my kit within 3 days of getting it I had sold almost all my jewelry from there I was given the opportunity to make new friends and get out in the community more. Through my journey with Paparazzi I have been able to help pay for groceries, gas, bills and even trips to see my husbands families. Paparazzi has been a life change for me not just because of finances but because I have really met some amazing women because of this company. That is my top reason for loving Paparazzi I know if I ever need anything I have another family I can call out to.

I started as a party and soon became an addict. Well like any addict I soon found I was spending more and more on Paparazzi. lol So finally I decided to become a consultant. I do not regret it.

I started as a last ditch effort to avoid getting an out of home job. I had been a stay at home mom for 10 years but was at a place where ends were not meeting month after month... So as a promise, I got one year and if it didn't work I would get an actual job. I'm five months in and am definitely seeing real income possibilities... But right now I'm spending all profits on the business. Lol Gotta let it GROW!!!

My papa story is very simple. I had purchased an item at an event about a year before i signed up. I was doing a vendor event with my other ds company and the lady next to me sold paparazzi. We did a party swap. She did a basket party and I did a home party and it looked SOOOOO easy and she made cash money in hand. So about a month of pondering i joined in Nov 2013 I do really well and have a few shops i sell exclusively to and finally getting the hang of the fb parties. My clients are always asking me when my next order is coming in. I love it because its simple, easy and doable. I wish i had found paparazzi a long time ago and that I would've been offered the job when I bought my 1st piece.

I started Paparazzi after seeing it at a vendor fair... I couldn't believe all of it was only $5 each! I picked up a card and continued to think about it. I love wearing jewelry and kept asking my friends if they had heard of Paparazzi. None of them had so I figured, why not give it a shot! I am glad I did!
