Hi, my name is Janet Dowthwaite-Clark and I am an Independent Distributor for Nature's Sunshine Products and I am delighted to have been chosen as Business Mum of the month for October by the Stratford & Evesham branch of Networking Mummies. Since starting my business on April 1st this year so much has happened in such a short space of time so it is great to be recognised by others in the group who are busy growing their own businesses. Networking is key to my success and I am glad that I have found the support and friendship that I get from the Networking Mummies group where we can all learn from each other.

Before I had my son at the grand age of 42 I had my own business as a freelance export sales representative for major British and American publishing houses such as HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster and 4th Estate, travelling throughout Europe selling English books into the European market. Thanks to the success of my business and the support of my partner I was able to take a career break to raise my son, a career break that lasted best part of sixteen years! However earlier this year I happened across the wonderful products that are made by Nature's Sunshine when a gym instructor, and now friend, introduced me to their high quality health supplements to help me with my insomnia which had gone on for many years. After finding out more about the products and trying several I made the decision to start my own business selling Nature's Sunshine and I can honestly say that decision has been life-changing. I am now building my business with the help of a great team, fantastic online support and as much free training as I could wish for. More importantly I am developing skills which enable me to help others change their lives by improving their health and this is my biggest reward. Our products include weight loss and detox programmes, protein and energy drinks as well as a large range of supplements made from organic and wild-crafted ingredients which are tested to pharmaceutical standards using over 600 tests to remove all traces of chemicals and pesticides.
My business spills over into everything I do every day because I am passionate about improving the lives of my clients, my friends and most importantly my family. Life is too short to spend time doing something that neither rewards or enthuses you!
