LimeWorks.us Independent Representatives
We want to network with entrepreneurs who will saturate regions of the country with knowledge by educating architects and masons on the core values of our products. This work is carried out within their own comfort zone and knowledge of their region, setting the range on how far they will travel to get this knowledge across to their audiences. There are no locked-in territories. Independent Representatives are entrepreneurs who are self-employed. We encourage them to exclusively represent LimeWorks.us products. Independent Representatives receive products with a certain margin of profit built into the final cost of the product so that they can pay themselves from the sales of the product in which they influenced the sale. These entrepreneurs may eventually have a retail location to showcase LimeWorks.us products as a typical retailer would. Entrepreneurs could also choose to orchestrate the pairing of appropriate products to the corresponding congruent applications. This would be done instead of having a "store" and they would otherwise work on setting timely deliveries of products after sales are completed by using the stock held at strategically located warehouses near them in New England, Ohio, Maryland, Florida, New Orleans, Wisconsin.
