  • i work from home, although i am not making nearly $4000 a month yet. We do have a girl on our team though that i do a lot of training with who's last paycheck was $8200 bucks for the month. She started at the bottom like everyone else, actually started while she already had a full time job. Within 2 years she was making enough to quit her full time job and now just works from home. i think just being patient and diligent is the answer to any at home job. None of them are get rich quick. You just have to work at them.

  • It's typically a very small select few that get to that point with Direct Sales Companies. Now I work from home managing our Carpet Cleaning Business and we do about $5,000-$7,000 a month currently with that business.

  • I am with Ameriplan. Due to the fact that I don't want this to look like an ad I'm going to use the anon button. But yes, I am earning well over $4000 a month. It took me about 2 years to get here. I will tell you, anyone that starts with this business and works it, can easily be earning $50K a year or more with in 2-3 years. In fact I am behind the rest of the team. Most of our ladies are earning 6 figures in an average of 3-5 years...

  • could make that much - but don't want to because it will affect our income tax rating.

    it took a few months to build a team, and customer base for me to achieve $2000 a month.

    its all in how much work YOU are willing to do.

    I do about an hour a day with my business.

  • I sell Avon and although I do not make that a month, I know a few that do. It is mostly thru recruiting and full time effort.

  • I sell PrePaid Legal .... I tripled my investment my first two weeks. I've only been doing this a few months, so I'm not making that much yet, but there are a few people that have gotten to this income within their first year. In the past few weeks the company has announced 2 more $100,000 earners. One couple just reported a part time income of $45,000 yr.

    Let me know if you would like more info. www/

  • I work with Internet CEO moms and most of the ladies that are on our team make 6 figures a year. We market for a wellness company. Its usually takes about 3-5 yrs to get there but in the mean time you can make great money!

  • I started selling Scentsy Wickless Candles (flameless, wickless, sootless candles that are COMPLETLY safe for children and pets) in December 2009 and my average monthly income is about $500-$700 a month. I usually have 2-3 parties a month. You can get as much as you put into it! I know many people that have been able to quit their full time jobs to do Scentsy only. To find out more about this 6 year old business, visit my website, or feel free to email me questions, it only cost $99 to sign up and that includes everything you need to have your first party! you can even do basket (book) parties!
