Usborne's independent network of book sellers is a home-run hit
A mother of two has become part of a network of home-run book sellers who are definitely all on the same page – operating as independent affiliates of Usborne Books to keep children supplied with reading material while bringing in a second income.
Sarah Sexton, 29, of St Mary’s Close in Newton Flotman, who is mum to Ellis, four, and Piper, one, joined the Usborne Books at Home scheme last March, becoming part of a team of self-employed book distributors.
“In our close team, we have mums, dads, teachers, grandparents, students and plenty of people all looking to gain different things from their book shop,” said Mrs Sexton.
“It’s ideal for me, because, after my husband and I had our second child, we decided that childcare costs would be too much for me to return to work. So I joined Usborne and have enjoyed it ever since.
“Ordinarily, we would attend events to sell books, but currently everything is being done online at home.
“My children love the free book allowance that comes with the role and I get to be active and be myself again and not solely a mum.”
