  • I have my own Mary Kay business. When I first started, my director asked me to set a goal. I said anything would help, even $500 a month! I was shocked when I hit the $600 mark within two weeks! I didn't have to put in a ton of work, just a couple of hours a day, and I am having a BLAST! With Mary Kay, you earn 50% on everything you sell! (Suggested retail prices.)

    With all the education available, you can start earning money within days of receiving your Starter Kit. And you’re in control of how much money you make. If you just want extra money to pay some bills you can. If you want more for vacations etc., it’s very achievable. Just think how the money can add up when you’re earning 50% on everything you sell! It’s one of the highest income earning percentages in the industry! Get in touch with me to learn more!!

  • I'm an independent consultant and area manager with Arbonne international! I started around year and half ago alongside my job as an accountant only wanting to make extra $500 a month! I did that so quickly that i saw if I put little more into it I could stay home with my won and work Arbonne part time and supplement my salary! I quit my job and have now surpassed my salary as accountant! I only work this business maybe 10 hours a week! Now I share amazing products and this amazing business opportunity with others and watch them reach their goals! I have large ampujt of sales im reorders each month!

  • The best and greatest home business you can have is one that you own yourself. (And diversity as soon as possible). You need to do something that you love. Something that you have the real time to commit to and make it happen. Too often I see women get started in a home based business and never move forward. Know whatever you do - it needs to be something you commit yourself to complete.

  • My husband and I own a custom gift basket business called One of a Kind Baskets. The only two employees are ourselves so we do everything. It's his part time job and my full time job. It takes a lot of time and effort and it's well worth it. And, unlike most of the other moms who answered, we're not a franchise. We control every aspect of the business from product development to the logo to our image, ect.

  • Greatest business: 'Helping mommies find work at home and never asking for a dime.

     I have made some loyal friends doing that, and I may not be rich, but my loyal friends are priceless. some will go wherever I go cause they can trust me, annd some will buy whatever I have because they support me in anything.
