Take the scrubbing out of your spring cleaning
Watkins can be the way to handle the annual task without use of harmful chemicals.

Spring has finally arrived in most parts of the country. You are probably about to begin that annual spring cleaning ritual to get your home ready for the new season. When you haul your cleaning supplies out from under your kitchen and bathroom sinks, take a moment to read the labels on the containers. We did just that about a year ago when we wanted to find out what was so powerful in those products that made our whites whiter and bathtubs brighter.

We were shocked! No wonder we had to use rubber gloves to avoid first-degree burns, and would start choking if we forgot to throw open all the windows before using some of these harmful chemicals. That’s why we were thrilled when we first learned about the Watkins all-natural home care product line. Our store now prides itself on offering these great products at the Big Bear Farmer’s Market every Tuesday from 8:30 am to 1 pm. But if you don’t live within driving distance of Big Bear, you can order these outstanding cleaning products through the following link:


What’s so great about Watkins all-natural products? Many all-purpose cleaners contain toxins that can be inhaled. Ammonia-based cleaners can irritate the skin, eyes and respiratory system. Minimize your family’s exposure to these harmful toxins with Watkins products. They are free of such ingredients as ammonia, benzene, bleach, boron, butyl/ethyl cellosolve, diethylene ether, formaldehyde and isopropanol, just to name a few of the harmful chemicals found in other brands.

A growing number of Watkins products have been endorsed by the Natural Products Association. To gain this designation, the product must be composed of at least 95% all natural ingredients. Is it any wonder why those of us at the All Natural Country Store are proud to endorse these Watkins products, and to use them in our own homes for spring cleaning?

This Easter, we’re multiplying in a big way

We’re amazed by the number of new consultants who have joined our Watkins Power Team in the last year.

It was a wonderful Easter as we gathered around the table with family and friends to celebrate the holiday. In counting our blessing, we had to pause and remember how our Watkins home business has really grown in the last 12 months. From a small enterprise five years ago, the former Big Bear Country Store has grown into the All Natural Country Store. In the beginning, it was just a handful of local consultants, who we convinced to open up their own Watkins part-time business.
While we had an amazing first year, advancing to managers after just a few months in our Watkins business, we seemed to reach a plateau in our second year. That’s when we realized that just selling Watkins products at our local farmers markets and other public events would not sustain our growth. That’s when we decided we needed to harness the Internet to expand to other cities.”
The decision brought phenomenal expansion. Before we knew it, we had other consultants from coast-to-coast and throughout Canada. They started their Watkins businesses small -- just as we did -- but in time they too began to grow as well. Just recently, we added another facet of marketing, branching out through Facebook to establish the All Natural Country store business page. 

Next was the formation of our own private group called the Watkins Power Team. Composed of our Watkins consultants, the group serves as a forum where team members can exchange ideas, discuss how they are expanding their reach, and ask questions when they are stumped by a certain business challenge.
It’s just another of the benefits we have created for our consultants, which also includes a private “Consultant’s Corner” on our www.AllNaturalCountryStore.net website. To find out more about the special training we offer our consultants, give us a call at 888-881-7372, and we will tell you all about it.
