Working at home, direct sales?

What is a fairly new company that doesnt sell any juices or vitamens that is profitable and simple to start and doesnt cost an arm and an leg to get started?

I have tried several before with no luck so im looking for something new hopefully ground floor but that is also fun...

  • What do you enjoy doing? Do you want a business that is geared toward children? Cooking? Gifts/Home Decor?

  • When I was looking into starting my own direct sales business, I looked up some information on this website: it gives  a list of pretty much every Direct Sales Company, then when you click on the company it tells you how long it's been in business, how much the starter kit costs, and how much consultants earn. I had looked through almost the entire list and found that Mary Kay was one of only a handful of companies that consultants earn 50% of everything they sell, and I decided to go with it because it has been around so long and has a product that people will use up and eventually need more of. The only other companies with that high of a percentage were ones I'd never heard of or jewelry companies that would be a lot harder to sell than makeup.

  • In all honesty if you've tried several and haven't had any luck I wouldn't bother trying another. I've been with about 7 direct sales companies, I've had my marketing ideas published in their newsletters, i've earned awards, but selling is tough which is why I disn't stay with any. I do NOT like recruiting and sadly unless you recruit, recruit, recruit you're not going to make a decent income. CEOmoms is just Melaeuca and there are only so many products you can have stockpiled in your closet while hounding everyone to start doing the same.

    At this point look into doing what you like. Even if it's just selling on ebay....Those that sell collectibles, used toys and used clothes get MOST if not all of their inventory from thirft stores and yard sales. I do this, and when I am consistant with listing I earn $100-$200 a week.

    But even if thats not for you, you have to do something you love for it to succeed.

  • I love this questoins and the answers...Yes, Ceo Moms is Melaleuca..and at this point after the last 5-7 years, THEY (not just CEO MOMS) have innundated the internet.

    I do have a Home Based Business that is DIFFRENT. We have NO PRODUCTS, so there is no stock pile of ANYTHING.
    We are NOT NEW, we are 39 years old and have a SOUND background, both Financially and Published, As of today , Prepaid Legal Services is trading onthe NYSE at $66.64 which is record breaking. We are moving into the Billion Dollar Market
    For someone who has already done A bunch of stuff INCLUDING MELALEUCA, I can say Hands DOWN this is the Best decison we;ve EVER made.
    We literally work like 20 hours a week, and Make a FT income as A SAHM.
