Doing research on Tomboy Tools?


It is what any RESPONSIBLE and SMART entrepreneur should do before signing on the Tomboy Tools consultant contract. It doesn’t matter if you heard about Tomboy Tools  just a few minutes, days, weeks or even months ago from a friend or your auntie… take a closer, unbiased (I am not affiliated with Tomboy Tools USA or Tomboy Tools Canada  at all) look at its product offerings, its compensation plan and…

LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEASThow to actually market and expand YOUR Tomboy Tools business  if you decide to pursue it… would be more than worth your time.

Remember: Becoming a Tomboy Tools consultant  is the easy part. If you want to make SERIOUS money with it, treat it as a real, million-dollar business.

The truth is that the OVERWHELMING majority of  Tomboy Tools consultants make very little, if any money at all because they don’t take it seriously. They treat their business as a little hobby… instead of a profitable enterprise.

And they most likely do not know how to effectively promote their Tomboy Tools business.

DIYCoolToolsPartyBy going over the complicated but lucrative compensation plan,  I see that there is a high earning potential in the Tomboy Tools business opportunity. And YOU may as well become the next top income earner in Tomboy Tools, if you learn the right way to promote the business, roll up the sleeves, grab your hammer (pun intended ;>), get busy and get things done.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) has long stated that about 95% of all businesses go out of business within 5 years of operation for a variety of reasons, and this statistic is WAY worse in our home based business / network marketing / MLM / direct sales industry.

If you are SERIOUS about learning the real “secret” that differentiates winners from whiners, then continue reading. This the very thing that sets YOU in the top 2% earners of the industry, while the other 98% goes on forever to spin the wheel, again and again… and again, from company to company, with no way out.

But before we jump into that, let’s first take a closer look.

Company History

Tomboy Tools, headquartered in Denver, Colorado, USA, was founded in 2000 by a couple of women homeowners who had projects to get done around their homes. Yet no men in their lives were able to complete the projects, and Tomboy Tools was born.  The company was cofounded by Mary Tatum and Janet Rickstrew.

NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt also featured Tomboy Tools in a story on – Trend in Women DIY.

I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
