Dove Chocolate Discoveries {starter kit} Giveaway

Did ya’ll know that October is Women’s Small Business month?  I did not.  When I think of women and small businesses, I some how think of women making hair bows and tutus at their dinning room table after the kids are in bed.  I also think of selling Avon and having Tupperware parties.  All of which are women’s small businesses.  There are lot’s of women out there right now thinking about starting up a small business whether it is making hair bows and tutus or getting involved selling products from companies such as Mary Kay or what have you.
There are so many companies out there and it may be hard trying to decide which company to go with and how to get started.
I recently had the opportunity to review a start up kit from Dove Chocolate Discoveries.  If your like me, you probably have never heard of DCD and when you think of Dove, you think of ice cream bars and chocolate candies in the check out lane.  However, Dove Chocolate Discoveries is far from ice cream and candy bars.  DCD is a wonderful way to earn some extra income or even jump head first into working for yourself.
In the DCD start up kit, you receive everything you possibly need to host your very first tasting parties.

And don’t worry about feeling overwhelmed.  DCD has made sure to include every tip and all the information to get started.  {along with some awesome tasting chocolate fun}  There is a Quick Start Guide that will give you all the information you need to inform your host and the guests attending the party about DCD.  You’ll also receive the party planner which basically gives you a cheat sheet on what all to say.  Totally perfect for those of you with a case of the butterflies that stumble over their words when speaking in front of a group.  You’ll receive entertaining guides with recipes, catalogs for ordering, invitations, and 2 DVD’s to watch.  One is your training DVD that will demonstrate the ease of a tasting party.  Plus you’ll receive enough products to host your first 3 tasting parties. 
When we were sampling all the chocolate, I have to say the first thing that I jumped at was the Chai Tea.  I used to work at one of those big coffee shops and we sold Chai Tea.  I have yet to find anything that is comparable.  DCD Chai was it!  It was smooth and perfect.  Just the right amount of spice.
The kids loved the mousse the best.  And they thought it was a lot of fun to try out the fondue.  We dipped short bread cookies in both the milk and dark chocolates and it was amazing!  You won’t be able to find chocolate this smooth and creamy any place else. 
When you work with a company as big as Dove, you know your in good hands.  If your thinking of stepping out into the world of small businesses and have thought about selling make up, think again.  Those make up sellers are everywhere.  It’s hard to get your foot in the door.  DCD, is seriously the best! {in my opinion}  I have to say that Dove Chocolate Discoveries is at the top of my list when I want to become my own boss.
Check out DCD and their Facebook page for more information.

I would so love this for our after Undy 5000 party! It's going to be bittersweet for us as we're walking/running to raise awareness and money for a cure for colon cancer in Daddy's honor and memory and this year the event falls on the one year anniversary of Daddy's passing...This would make it a little sweeter for us.
