Become a THRIVE Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) Consultant:

Becoming a THRIVE Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) consultant was one of the best decisions I made for our family.    Because of this, I recommend becoming a consultant to most anyone interested in preparedness, quick cooking, healthy eating or food in general!  But ultimately, the choice is yours.  Only you can decide if this will fit into and work in your life.



Is becoming a THRIVE Life  consultant right for you?

Questions to ask yourself:

And here are a few questions you may want to ask yourself to determine if this opportunity if right for you:

  1. Do you struggle to find “healthy convenience foods” that fit your busy schedule, but still provide quality nutrition for your family?
  2. Do you enjoy helping others?
  3. Do you need / want a work from home business opportunity, but are nervous about “pyramid schemes” / MLMs that have overly complicated commission plans, only reward you for getting others to sell the product, or only allow those at the “top” to make any money?
  4. Are you passionate about preparedness / food storage?
  5. Would you like a hobby outside of your “normal life?”
  6. Would you like the opportunity to earn free THRIVE Life products?
  7. Do you need a work from home opportunity without a lot of limits / requirements / restrictions (minimum sales, set hours, inventory required etc)?
  8. Are you willing to work consistently whether you have 2 hours or 40 hours / week to dedicate?
  9. Do you need to supplement your current income with part time income immediately?
  10. Do you need / want to earn full time income in the next 1-2 years?

If you answered yes to many / most of those questions, then you should seriously consider becoming a Thrive Life consultant.

Detailed Answers

You likely have a bunch of questions.  Here are a few posts that may interest you as you make your decision:



What I Offer


Once you are on my team and have completed the PATH (the consultant training program), I will start sending you leads!  This means if someone in your area contacts me (b/c of my website) and wants to host a party, I will send them to YOU!

Or, if someone in your area contacts me about becoming a consultant (and you are regularly doing parties), I will enroll them under YOU instead of me.

This will help you make more sales and grow your own team more quickly.

While I offer this benefit to all those on my team, I do give first preference to those enrolled directly under me (before those enrolled under someone else on my team).


Two Choices:

1 – Enroll Under Me:

You can choose to enroll directly under me.  Those who do get the leads I send out first.

However, due to family demands and the demands of my website, I do not currently offer a lot of hands on training.  I will answer questions you have via email and include you on a team facebook page where you can get answers from me and other team members.

If you are self motivated, this should work just fine for you.  Thrive Life corporate offers a great training program (called the PATH) that will walk you through everything you need.

2 – I’ll Find You A Trainer

If your personality does better with supportive, hands on, one-on-one training, I can hook you up with a great trainer on my team.

I have been a Thrive Life consultant since 2010.  As such,  I have many other consultants on my team from all over the USA.  I can match you up with a trainer that will work with your personality and support you well.

Shoot me an email ( and let me know a bit about you and how you would hope your trainer would support you.  I will then put you in contact with someone on my team who can fully support you.

I will still send you leads, just not quite as often as I do those enrolled directly under me.

  4. Robin I says:

    Than you for taking the time to post all the emergency prep information. I have to say; it’s all a little overwhelming. My son is working on his Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge for his Eagle Rank and this will be wonderful information that I can share with our other scouts and help them truly be prepared for anything.

  5. Delphine says:

    I’d like to see you give away an apple corer-pealed or dehydrator

  6. Michele Puccini says:

    My husband and I are very interested in this business. What exactly comes in the kit? Is there a website involved? Is there a minimum we have to sell every month?

    • Misty says:

      Hi Michele!

      There are no minimum sales requirements with Shelf Reliance to stay a consultant and earn off your own sales.

      You can get a website from Shelf Reliance that would look similar to this:
      (but with your name instead of mine) for $9.99 / month.

      There are 4 choices for a starter kit and they are all 20% off through Sept 15th which is a really great sale. You can see them all here:

  7. Linda says:

    Is this available to do or even to buy in Canada?

    • Misty says:

      Yes, Linda, you can buy THRIVE food in Canada and become a consultant there. However, you would not yet be able to sell the emergency supplies or food rotation systems. Email me if you have any other questions! I’m happy to help and could even send you the full Canada price list etc!

  8. Terri Cardamone says:

    I want to know how to join? What does it cost?

    • Misty says:

      Hi Terri! To become a consultant, you must purchase a starter kit (the least expensive of which is typically $199) and set up a Q of at least $50 +shipping. You can enroll directly online if you’d like here:

      You will need this information:

      My enroller ID: 1956.
      My email. It is:

      But through the end of July 2012, you can get the starter kit for $160. You would need to contact me directly to do so however. I would have to process your application manually. My email is

      I’m more than happy to answer any questions you have!

    • Misty says:


      You must purchase a starter kit for $199 + shipping and have an active Q of $50 + shipping / month. Let mek now if you have other questions!

      And sorry this reply took so long, I’ve had some issues with the comments on my site the last few days.

  12. Doc Hansen says:

    We are having our annual Powwow here in Paradise Ca in July-do you have fliers I could pass out? as their nurse I am so pleased about your company but I want to get the word out! we live in a high fire zone as well as Ca earth quakes. Your mission statement is one I believe in so how can I help to spread the word about your company??? Doc Hansen

    • Misty says:

      Sure Doc! I’d be happy to send you some fliers! Email me ( your shipping address and I will get them out. THanks so much!

  13. John Stec says:

    I am really intrigued by the opportunity represented by these products. The fact that Costco carries the Cansolidator speaks volumes for the utility and reliability of Shelf Reliance and the unique solutions which they provide.

    I am looking forward to “learning the ropes” and getting started.

    • Misty says:

      It is a fabulous company John! I’ve been incredibly impressed by both their products and the integrity of those leading the company. Were you interested in becoming a consultant with them?

  14. Amy Lauber says:

    I am intrested in trying the product and giving reviews. I am intrested in more information about the product. Down the line and if my family likes the product maybe selling the product. Thank You

  15. Christianne says:

    I would love to find out more about doing this! I think its something that is sorely needed!

    • Misty says:

      Christianne, I’m not sure how I ever missed this comment, but obviously I did since I never got back to you. Do you still have an interest in learning more?

  16. Beth Wilson says:

    Hi! My husband and I are interested in Shelf Reliance for not only our personal needs but as a viable source of income. I have been comparing other sites and find yours the most well rounded with not only shelf stable supplies but also the emergency equipment we are interested in. Please contact me so we can chat at your convience. Thanks and God Bless. Beth

  17. sandra salazar says:

    if I become a consultant ,can my whole famly be involved , like my sons can they sell too like a famly business . would i get group specials like at emmergency essentials ,and how would we get payed . how much shipping charges and is it ever free.

    thank you,
    Sandra Salazar

    • Misty says:

      Hi Sandra!

      Yes, you can all work the business together. There are a few ways to do that. You could have them as partners on your actual consultant account, or if they don’t live with you, they could set up their own account on your team.

      Group specials work a bit different than emergency essentials. Short answer is yes, you get group discounts. Long answer is that since everything is sold through the home party system, you get the discount by treating a group order like a party and apply the host benefit (free and 1/2 off product) to the order. If you enrolled, I would be your trainer and would make sure you understood how to do all of that and get the best prices for your family.

      To learn more about how commission works, watch this video. It explains all about being a consultant:

      Shipping starts at $6.99 up to $70, $9.99 up to $130, $12.99 up to $190, $19.99 up to $400 and 5% over $400. It is free once a year for all active consultants.
