The Distributor of the Week is an ongoing feature that we are proud to present weekly.
Check back every Friday as we highlight another amazing team member.
Name: Amber Bovencamp
Location: Surrey, B.C.
Start Date: June 2016
SL: Why did you choose SweetLegs and what’s your story?
AB: I had never worn leggings. I hosted a party to support a friend that was selling SweetLegs, thinking I may buy a few pairs to lounge around the house. The moment I tried them on, I was in LOVE! Leggings that were silky soft, not see through and actually made my legs look great! I purchased 7 pairs that night and signed up 2 weeks later to be an Independent Distributor. This is an amazing product that is affordable and fashionable; you can dress it up or down depending on where you are going and no matter what you are comfortable!
SL: How has being a SweetLegs Distributor impacted your life?
AB: SweetLegs has really helped bring me out of my shell and gain self confidence in what I wear and how I feel. It has helped me to leave my comfort zone and interact with people! I am so much more outgoing now! Being a SweetLegs Independent Distributor has also helped me financially by allowing me to put my kids into extra curricular activities and create additional income for my family.
SL: Tell us something exciting about yourself that others may not know?
AB: I have participated in two Tough Mudder events (and will do a third next year), Mudderella once, and have run a half marathon! I love pushing my limits and seeing what I can accomplish when I put my mind to it.
SL: What is your secret skill?
AB: I can make amazing cakes! I am a certified Pastry Chef, but only bake as a hobby now.
SL: Tell us about your most memorable customer moment?
AB: I was recently at a party and one of the guests was looking only at solid colour SweetLegs and very neutral prints. I encouraged her to try on a very bright (but beautiful) print “just to humor me”. It looked stunning on her, but she was still very against prints on her lower half. Half way through, she grabbed a few more prints just to try on for fun, and not only did she start to really like them, but she ended up purchasing a very bold print that night! I have no doubt that she is going to look and feel amazing in them. It makes me happy to help other women venture out of their comfort zone and be happy about it!
SL: Share an amazing SweetLegs story with us!
AB: One of my fellow distributors I actually went to high school with and had not seen in years. She introduced me to the product and encouraged me to join this amazing team of women. We have since become good friends and work a lot together! My sister also signed up with my encouragement and it has brought us very close! We talk pretty much every day now. Being a part of this community with women supporting and encouraging each other has been just amazing!
SL: How many donuts can you eat in one sitting?
AB: A lot …. lol! I stay away from them for just this reason!
SL: Do you have any advice for future SweetLegs entrepreneurs?
AB: I have learned that you must be very organized and follow a schedule, but be able to be flexible when it comes to changes and above all, have fun! It is all about positive customer interactions and enjoying what you do! Patience and perseverance is also required. It takes time, and a lot of hard work to get your name out there and grow your business, but it is definitely worth it!
SL: What makes your life Sweet?
AB: My kids. And my wonderfully supportive husband. I love them all to bits!
