My heart whispered, “Candles feed your soul. Share your glow. Make a difference. Listen to your intuition.” — Lynn
Hi! I’m Lynn Bardowski, founder of Million Dollar Party Girl. Don’t let the nick-name fool you. It’s more about a working Mom who discovered her inner visionista when she was least expecting it. Overcoming fear, failure and mommy guilt to become a multi-million dollar revenue generating direct sales entrepreneur.
Growing up in a middle class family at the Jersey shore, I spent a lot of time conjuring up ideas to make my fortune. After college I married a local boy, Bill, and landed a lucrative sales job. The money flowed in, but my happiness trickled out. It took the birth of my two daughters to wake me up. The dream job I thought I wanted was someone else’s dream, not mine.
It was December, 1989, when I opened my mailbox to find an invite to a PartyLite party. Yeah, that kind of home party. The glow of candlelight illuminated the friendships these women had…it stirred something in my gut. Was it the onion dip? Or, was this the sign I had been looking for?
Selling candles at home parties was not exactly what I thought I would be doing when I grew up. My ego jumped right in, “What will your friends and family think? How will you give up your BMW?” But my heart whispered, “Candles feed your soul. Share your glow. Make a difference. Listen to your intuition.”
Intuition won. I said goodbye to the corporate sales career and the status that went with it. Family and friends thought I was crazy. What they didn’t know was that a woman with purpose, passion and vision can’t be stopped. After 25 years of coaching thousands of direct sellers to succeed, I have a new vision. To share my expertise with mom biz owners, direct sales leaders and party plan reps who are reaching those same crossroads, not sure how to get from here to there but ready to learn how a Million Dollar Party Girl did it. So they can too.
It’s time women stepped into their power. Join my VIP Group and discover how to rock your inner Visionista, so you can make more money doing what you love!
