I'm think of selling Arbonne (it's like Avon and Mary Kay) has anyone had any luck selling beauty product?

I have a ton of friends and I'm a very business-ie, outspoken, energetic lady, ya think I'll have any luck,,, not try to make a ton of money BUT it cost $100 to start selling... and, I'd like to, at least, make that back.

  • No offense but you spend more than you make. And socially people passively aggressivly start to avoid you in fear that you will try to sell them something everytime they see you! Unless you have time to eat breath and sleep that company I wouldn't.

  • I had never heard of it until now. Good luck.

    Just remember mom, if you think you can do it, & you try to do it, & dont give it, you can do it.

    Im gonna go google it now. =)

  • I have never heard anything good about Arbonne as a business opportunity. Very few people actually make any money doing it, and those who do typically have to work their butts off and bug the crap out of everyone they know to either buy their products or sign up to sell it too. I've known people personally who've gotten involved in it and have had to tell some of them to straight up back OFF because they're so pushy. Check out this link and definitely do further research before you get involved in ANYTHING like this.

  • Most of those businesses, you have to recruit other people to make any money.

  • I have heard of it, but not many success stories! As I try to express to everyone interested in Avon, Mary Kay etc... do your homework. All those products are really sold everywhere, and its hard to find knew customers! I do MK very part time on the side of my candle business being that there are so many avon, mary kay reps in my area. I wish you the best!

  • I make decent money selling Jordan Essentials part time. It is a USA based company. All products are made in the USA.

  • Selling isn't for me. I feel like selling anything right now is a bit tough considering the way times are. I tried selling Avon and Personalized CDs for kids. I truly feel like times are tough for many people right now, many people just want to buy necessary items.
    I work from home and I love it! I don't have to sell anything. I am a stay at home Mommy to my 3 year old son, and 18 month old daughter. I work with a great team of Moms; we help each other create income from home. No parties, No inventory! Weekly pay! Free website, training, and unlimited support!!
