Hi! I'm Janna...
Welcome to my blog! After living the Pure Romance life since 2007 there are many days I still want to pinch myself. I'm so grateful for the unique lifestyle I live! Make no mistake, I work hard, but I play harder and get to do it on my own terms while connecting with (and hopefully positively impacting) awesome people along the way. It's true what they say - if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life.
Whether you are a consultant yourself, self employed (or dreaming of it) a Pure Romance enthusiast or just arrived here randomly - welcome! Thanks for stopping by and wherever you are headed, enjoy the journey :)

My Pure Romance Story (so far)
I had never been to a party before starting my Pure Romance business. At the time, I was doing public policy work in the nonprofit sector. I had just turned thirty and though my job was rewarding, it came with long hours, low pay and I was constantly exhausted. I found myself thinking "Is this IT?"
One of my girlfriends suggested I host a Pure Romance party. I had never heard of Pure Romance so looked it up online and was simultaneously intrigued and scared. I wondered who they would be sending to my home to do this party. Would it be awkward?
So I clicked on "consultant testimonials" from the main website to checkout what type of women do this business. I was stunned to see college students and grandmothers. Work at home moms and professional women (including an attorney).
My wheels started turning and I wondered what it would be like to do parties on the side. It could be a fun double life! Lobbyist by day - Pure Romance lady by night? For years I had dreamed of owning my own business, but turning that dream into a reality seemed complicated and overwhelming so I let life get in the way. I had NEVER considered direct sales or a party plan business as a viable business option. It just never crossed my mind.
I requested information and got connected to Donna (now my Pure Romance sponsor)who lives a few states away. She answered my questions and also seemed completely normal!
My tax return arrived and I decided to just go for it. I had a couple of girlfriends who were getting married. Maybe I could do their bachelorette parties and see what happened? I purchased the Silver kit. It seemed insane. My husband, James thought I had lost my mind. "You can hardly talk to me about sex - I just don't know how you're going to do this." I didn't know how I was going to do this either, but it seemed fun and $500 seemed like a minimal risk to take when opening a restaurant or coffee shop would have been SO much more.
My first party was with a small group of friends and some women they brought along. I thought I was going to throw up I was so nervous. But I ended up selling $600 in products to just a handful of women....and the rest is history!
Eight years later here I am! Pure Romance is my full time job (I left nonprofit life one year after joining) earn more than what I did in my previous full time career and I haven't looked back.
We added a baby to the mix this last year which has helped me appreciate my job even more. I love baby snuggling by day, and having an excuse to put on lipstick and have adult conversation a couple nights a week.
