  • I'm not sure if you would be interested or not, but I am a Senior Demonstrator w/ Gold Canyon Candles. I love this business and find in very easy, fun and actually make money at it. Let me know if you would like more info. I also sell Mary Kay, the money is good, because you get 50% commission, however they like you to carry a ton of inventory, that really in my opinion is good if you have a lot of customers. Do your reasearch on both Mary Kay and Avon because there may be alot of reps in your area, which may make it hard for you to find customers. I didn't do the reasearch and found out after the fact, lol. I'm still active w/ it, but found that this just wasn't for me. Good luck on your search!

  • You mentioned most customers...
    Ameriplan doesn't focus on just men or women, young or old. We offer Benefit plans to help people save on Health/Dental, ID theft, Legal services, Financial services and so much more. So we have a huge client base since everyone is looking to save mone and protect their families. Also 70% of Americans are without health insurance so here are so many who NEED the services that we offer. Just on Wednesday morning we were featured on Good Morning American as the top way to receive healthcare :-).

  • I am an independent distributor with Scent Sations for the last 2 years. We sell all natural products from candles to mineral makeup. I can't speak for the companies you listed but I know for me it hasn't been hard to find new customers that love our products. Of course I think we have the best products. If you are interested take a look around my website and let me know if you have any questions.

  • There are lots of options, I try to keep it simple. I don't buy or sell anything, and I never spend any money, pretty simple right? Earn Money Online

  • I actually work two different at home business's and bring in money with both of them. I am an Independent distributor for The Gouremt Cupboard. It doesn't cost anything to get started and your sell handmade mixes. All the customer has to do is add the wet ingredients. The second is with LaBella Baskets. check out my website to see how to become a gift/flower basket consultant. SO easy and fun.
