  • There are a lot of companies that offer this direction but you really have to believe in their product in order to sell it. I'm here to tell you that Gold Canyon not only sells The Worlds Finest Scented Candles but a Green line of cleaning products called Homeology , The other line is called Emerge; for Body and Mind.

  • I sell SCENTSY, the wickless candle! It is low start up and we make it up generally on our first check. SCENTSY is a fantastic company. We do not have "over the top" quotos and goals. They made it easier for us to "Make money" and not put it back into the company!

    Scentsy is $99.00 + tax and $10.00 shipping = est total depending on tax in ur area is $115.00, this includes everything to set you up to start off. Plus I give an additional $60.00 set to all of my new consultants. Personally train & guide. We have many incentives & competetive comission.
    Moving up in this company is also quite fast!

    My cafemom site here has addt'l info, or visit my website @

    We are not "over populated" with consultants" right now so we have a greater advantage at income and growth!

    I will be glad to answer any questions you have. gr-mom2

  • I am an independent distributor with Mia Bella Candles. We have a low start up cost and no sales quotas to meet.

    You have 3 ways to start your business ranging in price from $49.95 to $399.90 depending on how much product you want to start with.

    All natural wax candles with over 100 scents to chose from. We currently have 3 lines of candles, gourmet soaps and coming June 1st Mineral Makeup.

    I would be happy to answer any other questions you have.

    Good Luck in your search

  • Here are a few questions you can ask yourself and then compare companies based on what you do and don't want.

    Do they have monthly sales quotas?
    How much does it cost to stay active?
    Do you get paid for team building? (Residual Income)compensation plan for recruiting other distributors.
    Do they have set retail prices or can you create your own? (You determine your profit mark up)
    Are Home parties a requirement?
    How many ways can you earn money with the company?
    What kind of training and support do they provide?
    How much will it cost to maintain your biz/website monthly?
    Is there a free to start option? This will give people a way to test drive the biz before they decide to invest.

    Just review the questions above and proceed from there, you will be able to make and informed decision on the right one for you.

    If you have other Questions? PM me.

    Happy Hunting!
