How Oriflame has changed Janice's life aged 80 young !

40 years ago Janice had her own modelling school and regularly taught beauty at her local college in Eastbourne. Janice hadn’t heard of Oriflame, until a friend showed her an article by Jean Taylor (Oriflame Sales Manager) in a magazine.
"It was an empowering article at the time and I remember thinking if she can do it - then
so can I"
.


This was the perfect opportunity for Janice, not only could she use Oriflame products in her beauty school but she could make money selling them too.
"I went for an interview, purchased a beauty case and never looked back".

Janice started her business by inviting people over for coffee and demonstrations
"I just told them I was starting something new and needed people for demos. The women loved coming, of course in those days, not many women worked so it was something to fill their time"
.
Janice says, "The products sell themselves" so it was through the demo's that Janice started recruiting.
"Oriflame was just made for me"
.
It wasn't long before Janice became a very successful, active Consultant and had soon built an award-winning team. Janice started focusing fully on her career in Oriflame and soon began to reap the rewards.
"Not only was I earning a great income but I’ve won holidays every year and even a computer, which kept my husband entertained"
.
Janice Cridland, wife, mother of 4, grandmother of 6 and successful business woman says it hasn't been easy.
"My children and husband always came first, and that’s what is great about Oriflame, it works around me and my family"
. Recruiting Consultants in the day whilst her children were at school meant Janice could have both a career in Oriflame and time for her husband and children's activities.
Janice had full support from her friends & family. Her husband Rodney was a successful hair stylist so they used to work together in the early days.
"I used to teach the make-up classes whilst Rodney did the hair, we were a great team in the salon"
.
However, in 2001, after a long battle with cancer, Rodney passed away.
"I eased up a little when Rodney got sick, but I never stopped selling Oriflame. Rodney told me to never give up and that’s been my motto ever since
".
Janice tells us, "like anything, recruiting isn’t easy, you have to work at it, but I never give up. I look in the mirror every morning and tell myself I look great, I put on my Oriflame smile and that's it".
With her 42 year's experience we asked Janice what advice she would give for anyone starting now.
"Oriflame has been a fabulous thing in my life, I live in a town where everyone knows me. I keep my customers and recruit Consultants I can trust. I have a brilliant team who are loyal, some of my Consultants have been with me for 35 years or more. The products are lovely and they sell themselves but you must do your research, know the products and know your customers. Always be truthful and look out for your customers as your customers soon become your friends".

"Oriflame has done so much for me and made a huge difference to my life, I just love it and can’t imagine my life without Oriflame".
