"Member Spotlight"
(Business card drawn at the Networking Events)


Tupperware is celebrating their 75th Anniversary this year and has Lots of things going on! My name is Sue Skirvin and I have been with the company for more than 40 yrs. and I love the excitement of both the New Innovative Time & Money Saving Products as well as the ability to help others make money and save money with Tupperware! As with most of us, really diving into the virtual world has become a must, so our soon to be released Tupperware Live platform (Zoom on steroids!) will enhance and add other options for parties (yes we still do them!) besides Facebook Live, Zoom or the 30 minute Facebook parties. Servicing my established and new customers also brings me joy and I love reconnecting with them, especially with those whom I've not seen in years! If you do not have a "Tupperware Connection" already, I would love for you to consider me being that connection! Whether it is to replace a product under our Lifetime Warranty, to get a new catalog or to schedule a party to help you earn some Free or Half Priced Products or to check out the earning opportunity! I can be reached at 772-913-2010.
