I am looking for a home business opportunity....

Will you tell me about your home business? I am researching some posibilities right now but I would like to hear from moms about their business. What products or services do you sell/market? What do you like most about your business? How long have you been doing it?

(Please no "take a look at this video" answers. I find that those who can not tell me what they sell/market and insist that I watch this video, tend to be nothing but scams.)

  • I am a Rep with Juice Plus. Our product is 17 servings of different fruits and vegetables in a capsule, gummy or smoothie mix.
    I have been working with this company for a year. I was so impressed with my own results and how much better I felt I was telling everyone about Juice Plus anyway so why not get paid for what I was already doing. The company has a great business model, they make your job very easy. I share Juice Plus with people and they ship, bill, keep track of all my customers and pay me. For $50 start up fee you get your own website and a start up kit filled with DVD's, CD's, brochures, flip books, order forms, and info to introduce others to the business aspect of the company. We are a product driven company, I tell others about Juice Plus and maybe 1 out of 10 or so will ask me how they can do what I am doing. I tried other company's in the past and it was expensive and went no where fast. I love this company.

  • I have my own Mary Kay business. With Mary Kay, I earn 50% on everything I sell. It's one of the highest earning percentages in the industry!! Not only that, but I get to have fun and hang out with the girls, spend excellent quality time with my family since I only need to work a couple hours a day, I get to work whatever hours I want, and earn money while doing it! I've been with Mary Kay for almost a year now and it's honestly the best 'job' I've ever had.

    When I first started with Mary Kay, my director asked me to set a goal. I told her anything would help, even $500 a month! I was shocked when I hit the $600 mark within two weeks!!! If you're interested in learning more, just let me know. I have so much more to tell you that won't fit here in this little space!

  • Hi my name is Mary and I am an Independent Consutant with Arbonne International. We offer Premium Swiss skin care and wellness products that are botanically based. I fell in love with the products and realized I was making my sponsor money for all my referrals so I jumped in. We currently have over 400 products ranging from baby products, anti-aging skin care, mens line, nutritional supplements, teen line, weight loss products, aromatherapy and cosmetics. This industry is growing so rapidly, this is the time to jump in. What I love most about my business...several things, my team(both upline and downline) are caring and loving people whose only concern is to see you succeed, the products have helped my family with several skin issues, and the company and the management team provide an enormous amount of free training, self help and programs to assist the consultant in succeeding. Let me know if I can help in any other way

  • I own home based business with Arbonne International. Not sure if you have heard of it or not, but we are a 30 year old health and wellness company! Arbonne has amazing personal care products and I teach people how to save money by shopping in their own mall and make money by sharing with family and friends! I would love to share with you my journey with Arbonne! It has been the biggest blessing for my family. It allowed me to leave my corporate job and stay home with my child and work Arbonne part time! The income potential seems too good to be true, but you have the ability to make UNLIMITED income! I have helped others make anywhere from $200-$4000 extra a month! The best part about it is that it depends on where you want to be. You are your own boss! You control your paycheck. We have such an amazing support team that teaches us how to reach our goals! LOVE IT! Let me know if you have any questions honey!
