  • I have, it was terrible, I wouldn't bug my friends so my rep was always pissy at me and I don't care what people tell you NO ONE wants to go to a party to purchase something they can get for $3 at CVS.

  • I sell makeup/skin care products along with natural wax candles with Scent Sations. There are people that do purchase the products that don't feel the same way as If you want to check out what we have to offer take a look around my website.

  • I sell Mary Kay. I love it! You do have to put a little in but the income form it can be awesome. I made 62 last week in about 3 hours. You make 50% on product sales and you can make commission if you have anyone under you. If you have any questions about it PM me. Since there are no territories I can help you to learn more and even help you get started if you choose to. So far for me...not a waste.

  • Just like anything, you will get out of it what you put into it. If you work hard and are aggressive, then you will do great. Nothing sells itself though. Also, when selling any direct selling product (Avon, MK, Arbonne, etc) keep in mind your hidden costs. They will tell you that you earn 50%, for example, but it's usually only if your order size is a certain amount. Also, you have many hidden costs and can sometimes lose money on a sale (gas for delivery of the product, time organizing sale, business supplies, etc). Good luck!
