Brownie Wise created a social networking marketing system through dealers and sellers that quickly outsold Tupperware’s store sales which 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.
