Best of the Boards is a personal
website built from the contributions of direct sales consultants across the USA &
Canada. It is NOT an officially sanctioned site of any specific
Direct Sales Company.
Any references to specific
company or manufacturer names are completely unintentional and will be
corrected immediately upon notification of the webmaster.
Updated nearly every day, the What's
New pages should always be your first stop on Best of the Boards for important
announcements, newly created pages, display ideas, and new Business Links.
Contest results will always be posted on What's New, and you will want to
know if you've been selected as a winner! Prizes not claimed within two
weeks of announcement will be re-awarded to another entrant.
As of 1/10/2001, the Directory has been discontinued. Hopefully
temporarily, but there is no anticipated date at this time. If you are a
long-distance sponsored consultant, or your leader/sponsor has left the
business and you need to find local support/training, feel free to post to
Board, where you
will be very likely to get quick responses from legitimate, current,
ready-and-willing-to-help consultants in your area!
JUST THE FACTS,
New Consultant Basics
Exactly what you might expect from the title...all the basic information that was the
reason behind the creation of this website in the first place back in May of 1998. Games,
Hostess Ideas, Sponsoring Ideas, Theme Parties, Booking Ideas, Fund Raising & Fairs,
Inspirational Messages, Telephone Tips, Organizational Tips, Product Info, and a new
section: Start Me Up! Your
ticket to starting out brand new or rebuilding a floundering business.
Only Suppliers of direct sales related products and
services are allowed to be a part of Best of the Boards Business
Links. Stickers, Software, Online Resources, Shirts, Stationary,
Jewelry, much much more! Please support our Business Links as they provide
the sole financial support of this site, as well as donating
prizes for all of the Best of the Boards contests.
The NEW Message
An open forum for consultants to share their ideas and support each other.
Although unmoderated, it is regularly checked for inappropriate posts or
advertisements outside the required server ads. Derogatory posts toward
individuals, advance notice of company promotions before monthly mailing
dates, or posting of trademarked or copyrighted names will be removed and
friendly reminders given to the individuals responsible for posting. This
is also not a forum for buying, selling, or trading product between either
consultants or customers, although it may be used to assist in customer
service (ie: locating retired product for example to replace a piece no
longer available through the company). ANY and ALL SUCH TRANSACTIONS
ARE AT YOUR OWN RISK -- PLEASE EXCHANGE PHONE NUMBERS PRIVATELY AND
CONTACT EACH OTHER PRIOR TO ACTUAL EXCHANGE OF PRODUCTS/MONEY.
Chat! Spirits of the Fire Chat Room!
Set up, maintained, and supported by Dave at Ravenquest
(Spirits of the Fire) - the Chat Room is always open.
We will hold a scheduled chat every Sunday night between 8:00 -
10:00 Central Time. Hopefully, that time frame will allow everyone from East Coast to West
Coast an opportunity to pop in for a few minutes. Feel free to arrange other
regularly scheduled times to get together on your own.

VIEWING TOOLS! Download Page
Downloadable files in universal formats - flyers, fund raisers, sample letters, clip art,
