Mars, one of the largest candy companies in the world, has a secret. They can put you in the chocolate business with Dove Chocolate Discoveries, a venture that intends to make direct-selling a sweet experience. Hosts of the chocolate parties are â€œchocolatiersâ€ who serve Dove chocolate or make it into special treats.
â€œThe biggest financial advantage of becoming a chocolatier has been being able to pay a few of our monthly bills myself and having the ability to travel and see my friends and fellow chocolatiers,â€ says Dove chocolatier Ruth Miller. â€œWhether itâ€™s a girlsâ€™ night out, a couplesâ€™ wine and chocolate evening, a momsâ€™ play group breakfast or a childâ€™s birthday, we have the entertaining idea to fit. No cooking experience necessary. But if you are able, you can experiment with new recipes until your heart is content.â€
â€œWith minimal startup costs, itâ€™s the only direct-selling chocolate company and is perfect for stay-at-home moms or dads looking to make some extra money,â€ says Overcoming Underearning author Barbara Stanny. â€œIn a time of such financial uncertainty for so many, I am truly blessed to be able to have a means to an end, for my family,â€ says chocolatier Sally Valenti.
â€œIâ€™ve been a chocolatier just over one year,â€ says Valenti. â€œI enjoy sharing my passion and love for chocolate and food with new people. A friend of mine attending a business conference and happened to sit next to a chocolatier. When my girlfriend found out that Shelly did chocolate parties, my friend called me immediately, because she knew how much I loved chocolate.â€
