  • I am a Scent Sations consultant. We are a debt free company that has the most amazing natural products from candles to mineral makeup. Our "Smell and Sell" business is one of the simplest around. It's truly a back-to-basics business. We have starter kits that range in price from $49.95 and up. We have no sales requirements. The only requirement is you purchase the monthly autoship ( $39.95 plus tax and shipping) to receive the products at their lowest discounted price. On the monthly autoship program you will earn between 40-60% on retail sales. We have a car bonus, travel bonus and leadership bonuses.
    Recent polls show that 96% of women have purchased a candle in the last year. And how many women want to look their best and would love to wear make-up that’s affordable and actually good for their skin. Hmmm, tells us something!

  • I second Kari, I too am with Scent-Sations and love it! I just wanted add that you can also join the associate program. The Associate Program is a unique program that enables a person to join the company with no signup or startup fees or monthly minimum purchase requirements. It allows members to purchase candles and other products at the wholesale price (approximately 15% to 30% more than what Autoship members pay) without being on the autoship program and without having any monthly minimum purchase requirements. Associate program members can fully participate in the basic compensation plan and receive commissions on the sales activities of any distributor they personally sponsor into either the autoship program or Associate Program and be considered active when they maintain a minimum of $39.95 in commissionable volume in any given month. Associates pay $14.95 per month if they want a website.

  • Well...who doesn't love Dove Chocolate? I work as an independent contractor for Dove Chocolate Discoveries. For this month you can get started for only $79.00! That is amazing. That includes enough product for your first 3-4 parties and you will make well over your money back. These are fun parties and my friend made $635 in her first 30 days because we can get up to 45% commission in our first 30 days. Not to mention Chocolate is recession proof the chocolate industry sold over 17 billion dollars in chocolate products.

  • I tell people about Juice Plus. It's 17 servings of fruits and vegetables in a capsule, gummy or meal replacement shake.
    Most people can't, don't or wont eat enough fruits and vegetables, so this is a convenient way for them to bridge the gap between what they eat every day and the nutrition the body needs to be healthy.
    It's simple, convenient and affordable. I don't know of anyone that would not benefit from better nutrition.
    Start up cost is $50 for your distributorship , which includes a kit with everything you need to get started right away.
    Most researched whole food based product in the world.
    Website and Virtual Office to help you manage your business. (Free for the first 60 days.)
    No monthly points required.
    $$$ Bonuses
    The perfect business and product for anyone interested in the booming health and wellness industry.
    I can help people every day.
