  • My advice is to find something you can be passionate about and speak about from the heart. When you're passionate, it resonates from within and you attract your customers. Find something that motivates you, that you can't stop thinking about, your mind runs a mile a minute because you're so excited about it.

    I run a small catalog company out of my home and help people convert their homes to environmentally friendly, non toxic products. I'm bringing in a very nice part time income and am quickly advancing in the company - I love spending my time making sure my customers have a great experience and my team is constantly motivated, encouraged, and inspired. It was just announced that we're conducting our $1 enrollment promotion again which is good for the rest of November. If you would like to talk more about it, feel free to message me.

  • I sell herbalife and scentsy although scentsy is my favorite. The #1 thing I tell people is that you have to have a passion for the products. If you don't, you will fail. So find one that you are passionate about the products. If it happens to be either herbalife or scentsy, let me know and I can help you get started :D

  • I sell used clothes and various items on ebay. I also manage our carpet cleaning business from home. I love our carpet cleaning business, we use a low moisture system and for about $2,000 you can buy all your equipment and get started. The average residential job is about $130 and the average commercial job is about $400, we do roughly 12 jobs a week, they don't take long, don't use much in overhead, so most of the money earned is profit.
