I’ve been in the direct sales (or party plan) industry for over 17 years and I have a multi-million dollar organization.

But I haven’t always been this successful. It took me a while to get the hang of getting bookings reliably. It took me a while to get this recruiting thing happening!

But you know what? I am so grateful that I had to work at it. That I had to try different techniques and making them work for me. I had to build up a store of knowledge and skills in all aspects of my business.

And now I combine that experience and knowledge with my Masters Degree in Education so I can teach others to be successful direct sellers!

Christine Tylee – founder of Direct Sales Inspiration

I’m Christine Tylee, founder of Direct Sales Inspiration. My passion is helping people in the direct sales industry to achieve their dreams. These can be bold, daring dreams or dreams of the perfect little business to fit your lifestyle.

I absolutely love my business. I’ve won so many awards that I wouldn’t know where to start listing them all (plus I don’t want you to nod off).

But a few that I’m particularly proud of are the fact that I was the first person to achieve the top career-plan rank in my company and I’ve been in the prestigious ‘Million Dollar Club’ for nearly a decade. I also hold the record for the most people recruited into the business in a single month.

One of the things I love about the direct selling industry is how flexible it is. This became very clear a few years ago when my 6-year old daughter was diagnosed with acute leukemia.

I am so very grateful that I was able to work from my daughter’s hospital room. Other parents I’ve met on the pediatric oncology ward have had to give up their job or put their career on hold, causing further stress in the family. But I’ve been able to keep my business going, keep my sanity by giving me an outlet for my own needs, and continue to provide an income.

I don’t know of any other industry where you can do that!

My daughter is doing well now, she’s in remission but my passion for the direct sales and party plan industry has remained!

Notes to My Younger Sel

I have recently contributed a chapter to the book Notes To My Younger Self – Volume 2.

The book is full of stories of inspirational and amazing women and it’s such an honor to be part of it!

In June 2019 I won the Direct Selling Australia Distributor of the Year Award.

I was simultaneously proud and humbled by the award, which I received for sharing my passion in my personal business and through Direct Sales Inspiration. Also because I’ve become an advocate for several charities supporting families going through a cancer journey.


In May 2020 I participated in the Direct Sales Success summit organized by Sassy Suite. It was an amazing experience as we all worked together to provide awesome and useful content to direct sellers worldwide.

What others are saying:

Christine has a wealth of knowledge in the direct sales industry. I always walk away from her training sessions and coaching inspired and motivated to try new things in my business.

I met Christine Tylee 5 years ago through school when our daughters started kindergarten. I was a stay at home mum, and had not worked for 7 years. I was starting to get itchy feet and was wondering what my next form of employment would be. I’d previously worked for myself and definitely didn’t want to go back to work for anybody else. As it turned out Christine was managing her own business working in the Direct Sales industry. I thought I would give it a go too.

Christine’s wealth of knowledge and experience got my Direct Sales business off to a very strong start. With her natural ability to coach and train, she helped me achieve my goals to qualify for 3 overseas trips, Hawaii, Thailand and Las Vegas.

Christine is a Mumpreneur! A stay at home mum herself, with 3 kids. She has proven to me that anyone can achieve what she has when you put your mind to it. She is the perfect mentor to have in your life, motivating, encouraging, but most importantly, she’s tried and tested everything herself!

I have had the absolute pleasure of having Christine as my Leader for the past 5 1/2 years! She is an amazing role model, incredibly supportive, dynamic and a sensational Leader.

With Christine’s support and cheerleading I have reached goals that have been life changing, including leadership and glamorous overseas travel. Party Plan wasn’t ever on my radar but when I had the opportunity to join the Body Shop at Home to earn some extra income for my family I could not imagine how my life would change for the better!

Earning money while doing parties! Wow! The friends, products, fun, travel, flexibility and being the my own boss has all been beyond my wildest dreams! Thanks Christine for supporting me in my dream job!
