Our starting goal… earn free books!

We joined Usborne Books & More in 1995 with simple goals…
Earn a “bunch” of books FREE!
Make money to get MORE books!
And to have fun doing it. 😉
Well… we have achieved those goals, plus more than we ever dreamed possible!

A FAMILY Home Business

We wanted a family business as a way to teach our children valuable life lessons… that money doesn’t grow on trees – you have to WORK for it! Our Usborne Books & More business provided that opportunity.

When our children were small they came with us to parties – just one at a time as a special “date night” with mom or dad – to share about their favorite Usborne book. These experiences help them learn how to speak to adults & they developed a good work ethic at a young age.

As our children got older they helped out at booth events and book fairs – with our daughter even starting her own Usborne Books & More business to help pay for her college tuition to become a nurse.

Read smart books if you want smart kids! 

Selling with Usborne Books & More allows you to fill your home with quality educational books to help your children develop a LOVE of learning. Is selling with UBAM worth it? YES! For that reason alone…

Our kids went to college early!
And are gainfully employed. 😉

Their variety of careers were first explored by reading Usborne books…
Controls Engineer, Artist, Designer, Nurse, Mechanical Engineer, Ap Developer, IT Manager, business owner, military… They still love to read… and now read Usborne books to their own kids!

Control of your own schedule is priceless!

With Usborne Books & More YOU control your own time. You do not have to ask for time off or a leave of absence – YOU decide. If your spouse gets a job transfer… no problem.

There are no territories with Usborne Books & More. With the internet you can work your UBAM business anywhere in the USA.

We lived in Germany for a bit and maintained our Usborne Books & More business online in the USA. As we didn’t have another job or employer holding us back, this deployment allowed us to give our children an opportunity to see history “in person” all over Europe.

We LOVE the portability and flexibility
of our Usborne Books & More business!

The most recent trip… five nights in ROME for 2 with $4000 in spending CASH!🙂

Dreams Come True!

This is an opportunity anyone can take as far as they want and we have. The income with our Usborne Books & More business allowed us to build our “Dream Home” on our 80 acres in 1999 and build a huge barn/office in 2005… and by God’s grace, everything was paid off in 2017.

(and thankful for our Usborne Books & More business)

Our Usborne Books & More business enables us to support our family’s needs & travel the world with many free trips. And now that our children are grown, our Usborne Books & More business gives us the flexibility to pursue other interests & enjoy being grandparents… which we LOVE!! 🙂

Here’s my required disclaimer… “Actual earnings can vary significantly depending upon time committed, skill level and other factors. Not everyone will achieve the level of income depicted here.”  In other words… yes, you do have to work to earn the money/trips/awards. 😉 Isn’t that true for everything? But Usborne Books & More definitely is a business you can grow large over time if you are consistent and persistent. Or, it can be a fun way to earn a bit of spending cash – you choose by the amount of time and effort you put into your business and building a team.
