Rebekah's Barefoot Story

Formerly a nonprofit executive director, I now work from home as a Barefoot Books Ambassador while raising my five year old son. I fell in love with Barefoot when I purchased How Loud Is a Lion? for him as an infant. I read about the Ambassador program in the back of the Barefoot catalog, and I knew the program fit with my desire to spend as much time as I can with my son while doing meaningful work.

I’ve never considered myself a salesperson, but I wanted to share these beautiful, unique, culturally rich books with other parents and educators. Since joining Barefoot in 2013, I’ve grown my business through offering storytime parties, online events, school book fair fundraisers, and participating in community events. I know the challenges and rewards of sharing Barefoot in an area of the country where the books are not yet well-known. I was thrilled to be one of the top eight Ambassadors globally who earned a spot at our 2015 Leaders Retreat in France. If you're considering becoming a Barefoot Ambassador, I'd be happy to talk with you about what support I can offer you as a team leader.
