About Me

Hello, welcome to my Pink Zebra website! My name is Erin Hughes and I am a Director and Pink Zebra Independent consultant! Thank you for taking the time to discover the true beauty of Pink Zebra Home's products!

Pink Zebra Director

I want to share with you how I started my journey with Pink Zebra and how it has given me inspiration, encouragement, motivation, and the passion to be a leader and change lives! My story began the winter of 2013 at Minot Air Force base in North Dakota. I had been teaching elementary school at the base and wanted to start a family of our own. I decided to stay home that school year during my pregnancy due to previous fertility problems. Around February 2013 I was getting cooped up being in a house in the middle of winter. I had tried to keep myself occupied with knitting, sewing, and of course having a baby! Not having a full-time job, we were taking a major paycut and I was becoming bored. I wanted an opportunity to use my talents and gifts that God has given me to help others.

I was searching on the internet for ground-floor direct sales opportunities. I had always loved candles and warmers, plus I had previous experience from being a Scentsy consultant. When I came across Pink Zebra's main website, I thought it looked like fun! The concept of using wax Sprinkles to make your own unique scents was genious. I decided to look for a consultant in Minot, North Dakota and contact her. We met at the local Starbucks downtown and she gave me a catalog along with several samples for me to try. At first I was very skeptical. I thought this company wouldn't last because of our competition and it being so small. So, I thanked the consultant for her time and took the samples home with me to try in my warmers.

I would say within 20 minutes I could smell Farmhouse Cider in my kitchen, living room, the bathroom, and the bedrooms upstairs! I could not believe it, so I wanted to see my husband's reaction when he came home from work. He came through the front door and immediately began to smell the Apple Cider. He asked me what that wonderful smell was and I told him two words; Pink Zebra. We talked about the possibility of me being one of the first consultants in Minot. I joined two days later and have not regretted my decision since!

From the beginning, I wanted more for myself and my family. I began actively booking parties and recruiting a team both locally and nationally. I reached all three levels of Pink Zebra's Quickstart Program and promoted to Executive Consultant within 2 months. After I had my son, we moved two months later to Ohio where my husband began working on his graduate degree at the Air Force Institute of Technology. While in Ohio, I knew I would have to build another customer base and team. I got started quickly and within my first year of selling Pink Zebra I promoted to Manager in March 2014 and had a team of 200 consultants! In 2015, my family and I relocated to Albuquerque, New Mexico where I continued to grow my Pink Zebra business and promoted to Director! My husband and I also welcomed our second son into the world and both of our boys mean everything to us! Being a military spouse, you go where your husband's career takes you. I love the fact that my job with Pink Zebra is flexibile and it can come with me!

Recently, we moved near Shreveport, Louisiana where my husband is based at Barksdale Air Force Base and my team and I have continued to grow by leaps and bounds! I have several Managers, Executive Managers, and Directors who are on my team! I have earned the 2015, 2016, and 2017 incentive trips! My goal is to promote to Executive Director in 2020 as well as graduate with my Doctorate of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Liberty University. All of this happened because I took a leap of faith and said "yes" to the business opportunity. To say that we are a great team is an understatement. I truly believe we are one of the BEST teams in the company! We are still growing beyond 3,700 consultants and need more consultants to rise to the top with us!
