  • Anything that can be bought in a store wont yeild a high income no matter where you are - just my opinion. So I would say No

  • I do sell candles. If the product that you are selling is something you are passionate about and worth the money you are asking people will buy. I have a loyal customer base of people that buy from me every month. If you are looking into a candle business you have to look at all avenues they offer to make money. The company I am a distributor with has 3 ways to make an income. I follow all 3 ways and make a decent income from all.

  • I wouldn't want to try to sell anything with this economy. I work at home but I don't sell anything. You should read my blog with information on how to  Be a Work at Home Mom (for free)

  • I'm selling candles also, and although I just started, I'm not expecting to make a ton of money with them. All I care about is that I'm bringing in more than I put out, because I like the company, and I like the products.
    I work online also, and that's what making me the most money right now.

  • I actually make an average of $800 a month doing Scentsy.... I have never had a HOME party...this is just Basket/CAtalog parties . I give people a basket & they do it on their own. SUPER for me :)

    I am with Scentsy....a Wickless Candle Company. No danger. These are warmers that use a light bulb to lightly warm the soft wax not burn it. They are infused with natural & escentual oils. So your family isnt breathing harsh chemicals....especially those with allergies. Room sprays & car fresheners as well!

    Start up only $99 & FREE Warmer for joining my Team!
