BACK IN 1976 THE DISTRIBUTOR RIGHTS ASSOCIATION ADOPTED BROWNIE WISE AS THE ICONIC PIONEER AND THE FIRST TOP MLM – NETWORK MARKETING DISTRIBUTOR TO BE TERMINATED BY A GREEDY MLM COMPANY OWNER
Brownie Wise (May 25, 1913 – September 24, 1992) was a pioneering American saleswoman largely responsible for the success of Tupperware through her development of the “party plan” system of marketing (social networking marketing). She was also the first big MLM Distributor to be terminated by a greedy MLM Company owner! She is an MLM-Network Marketing Icon and the Distributor Rights holds her as an Icon to the world.
A former sales representative for Stanley Home Products, Wise found Tupperware to be a product with broad appeal and soon began selling it at home parties. In 1950 she moved to Florida and created a social networking marketing system through dealers and sellers that quickly outsold Tupperware’s store sales.
ED. NOTE: Yes Brownie Wise coined the term “Social Networking” and added “marketing” far before home computers were even born ….. So if someone tells you “Social Media Marketing” is hot and new – – tell them you know the real truth.
This caught the attention of Earl Tupper, Tupperware inventor, who invited her to be vice president of Tupperware Home Parties in 1951. She insisted that he market his products exclusively through party plans, where women invited friends and neighbors to a combination social event/sales presentation.
Wise ran the sales division, Tupperware Home Parties, Inc, from Kissimmee, Florida and had the freedom to implement her marketing strategies. Her methods were extremely successful. Her ability to tap into popular culture, the desire for happiness helped recruit thousands of women into a career at a time when a woman’s role was conventionally tied to the home. Her noted TV appearances, magazine and newspaper articles made her a household name. In 1954 she became the first woman to appear on the cover of Business Week! Brownie broke through the Glass Ceiling for women before the term “glass ceiling” was ever coined!
FIRST MAJOR TERMINATION OF A TOP MLM-NETWORK MARKETING DISTRIBUTOR FOR GREED BY AN EVIL COMPANY OWNER!
Soon the private face of Tupper and the public one eventually headed towards irreconcilable differences as Wise’s success turned her into a celebrity. In 1958 Tupper TERMINATED his top Distributor – Cutting off Her down line commissions. Soon after every reference to her was removed from company literature; it was as if she had never existed. She owned no stock and was brutally forced out with one year’s salary. unfairly set by tupper Soon after he shafted and stole Wise’s downline, Tupper sold the Tupperware organization to Dart Industries for US$16 milliona an amazing amount for 1959.
Wise formed her own party-plan cosmetics company, Cinderella, but it did not blossom. After this she started her own teaching and training company. Tupperware’s inaccurate recanting of history say’s she and died in relative obscurity in 1992 which is a lie propogated to this day, of a wonderful vivacious woman who gave vision and training to millions of women.
