This summer I'm able to fit my work in around camp and vacations. It's all because I've crafted a career that is flexible and makes the most of my talents. I love my Mom Boss life (in fact I wrote a book about it, Mom Boss, with the forward written by cabi Chief Culture Officer, Kimberly Inskeep) I've been fortunate to team up with a company that helps moms create businesses that are similarly flexible and creative: CAbi is an incredible brand with a story that resonates with me. It's time to perhaps discover a career at cabi.
CAbi is a business launched with pluck, energy and talent. Over 35 years ago, Carol Anderson and Jan Janura launched the Carol Anderson Collection--a fashion label that exuded style. In 2002 the concept changed from traditional retail to something revolutionary--in home sales. CAbi now has over 3,000 consultants who have lucrative and fun businesses that allow them flexibilty.
Much like blogging, the CAbi consultants have to know the women in their community. This career is all about relationship building. Check out this video to learn more:
