Penny Buhr. I’m Penny Buhr and I am thrilled to be this month’s rep spotlight! I have been married for almost 27 years and have 3 grown children. My husband and I are looking forward to June when we will be grandparents for the first time. We are also in the process of building a home, which has taken almost 10 months now.
I joined EBW in July of 2012 and was intrigued by the uniqueness of the business. I have been in direct sales before and thought this would be a ground floor opportunity. I have been active with this business for about 4 years, but this year I am making it a much higher priority.
I signed a new recruit in January, and after EBW announced the 5% incentive at our annual Conference, I was excited because I knew I could attain it. My new recruit, Amber has done a tremendous job kicking-off her business and in turn I became the third person, company-wide, to achieve the 5% bonus. I was shocked! At the beginning of 2017, I committed to growing my business and leaving my part-time job and steady paycheck sometime in the spring. This incentive is a positive step toward growing my Essential Bodywear business.
EBW gives me great joy because I get to put smiles on women’s faces, help them stand a little taller, and make them feel more confident in themselves. I also give back by volunteering one day a month at My Sisters Closet. This non-profit receives new and gently used bra donations and I fit women free of charge who are financially struggling and trying to go back into the workforce. The gift of a free bra makes their day and completes their professional outfits.
Earning the next EBW incentive trip to Riviera Maya would mean the world to me. It means that I have grown my business and my team and made EBW my main source of income in a job I absolutely love! I also want to be able to take my husband on this amazing free trip offered by Essential Bodywear!
EBW means being my own boss, setting my own schedule, and having fun! The friendships I have made over the years are priceless. I am very fortunate to be a part of this company. I want to travel more, with Italy and New Zealand at the top of my bucket list! I truly believe this business can make that possible.
Since joining EBW, I have gained confidence, consistency, friendships, financial freedom and joy. Having friends all over the country encouraging me and supporting me is a blessing.
One of my favorite quotes I live by is Matthew 19:26 – “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”
