  • How many did I try? Lord, who knows, dozens. It took me at least 6 months to find the ones I like. I've now been doing it for almost 2 years.

  • Well, let me say this - I tried one home based popular company for about a year - made some money, but it didn't turn out like I'd hoped. I still work with that company; however, I've found one that I love - I've been involved with this company for a few months now and am loving it! Please visit either or for more info! Enjoy!

  • I'm lucky too....I guess it helped that I knew people that sold Gold Canyon as well. I make 25% up front in commision, and the products sell themselves, really. I have repeat customers, party repeats but mostly a lot of Catalog parties. Which is nice, saves me driving and gas $$. Gold Canyon has a new Homeology livce that is mentions on TV and magazines, helps the buss. Green cleaning is all "new" again.

    I have to say, I first admined for my husbands construction business...thsi is easier and I mkae better money!!
