Our mission is to share stories, connect families and inspire children. As a Barefoot Books Ambassador, you can earn income and make a difference. Ambassadors represent our brand and sell our amazing books, songs, animations and games through home parties, community events and online. You can run your business in a way that benefits you and your family.
This is a flexible business, and you can sell books in the way that works best for you. Ambassadors earn money by marketing and selling Barefoot Books products in their communities through home parties or online parties, and through community events like school fairs and fundraisers. The types of events vary from storytimes, to art and crafts sessions, to a moms night out! You can be as creative as you would like.

You can also sell Barefoot Books through your free website, as well as other websites, blogs and social networks.
Home parties are a proven way to scale your business. We are modernizing the home party with a family-friendly twist. Our home parties are designed to focus on storytelling and interactive activities. They are engaging and fun! Ambassadors work with their hosts to create an event that fits their interests and styles. You can have a "World Animals" themed party with kids, a "Fairytales & Cocktails" night out for just grown-ups, or a casual gathering with friends. Barefoot Parties are a simple way to get together for meaningful conversation, convenient shopping and new relationships.
This is your business. You are in control and decide how much time you want to invest in reaching your personal goals. Some of our Ambassadors dedicate 5-10 hours a week to the program; for others, it is a full-time job. The advantage is that you can stay flexible depending on your schedule and earning goals.

There is no sales threshold to remain active as an Ambassador! The Barefoot Books Ambassador program is an opportunity to make income in a way that fits your family needs and life. We want to support every Ambassador who joins the community with a different goal in mind. Not requiring a certain minimum in sales gives Ambassadors the flexibility and freedom to run their business in their own way.
We understand that life can get busy or circumstances can change. You will not be penalized if you decide to leave the Ambassador Program. We also offer medical/emergency leave options if you need to take some personal time off. Again, this Barefoot Books business is supposed to help you reach your personal goals. We will work with you to create the best solution.
