  • Hi there,
    Personally, I feel that anyone should start something because they feel it will be a good fit for them and their Family. Find something you're passionate about. I love working from home. I don't feel I need to tell you why you should become part of my Team of Moms, because we're not into pressuring anyone. We just share our information with people who want to know and they make their decision from there.

    Best Wishes and Happy Holidays!

  • I am in direct sales with 2 companies. The products are great (which is why I decided to sell them), it's not a scam, and with a little motivation and effort you can make some extra cash. Check out my profile for the links to my businesses. Good luck in your search.

  • I don't believe in convincing people why they should join MY business, because if I have to convince you in the first place, chances are, you won't be on my books very long. Relationships are the foundation of any lasting business therefore, I believe in building them and working only with select people.

  • I think the vast majority recommend the company they are with not because they make a full time income and want to help others in need do the same, but more like they want to recruit you and earn off you.

    I sell on ebay. I don't earn anything from recommending it or helping others type the best titles and descriptions, I give the info freely without any personal gain. You can find name brand clothes at thrift stores, yard sales, consignment shops, take decent pictures, give a great description and do fairly well. Yes, ebay fees are higher than selling elsewhere but no other site has the sheer volume of potential customers cheaper than ebay. Not even craigslist and their no fees as most shopping are local only.

  • Not all WAH business are the same. We own our own company. We don't recruit or do MLM. We are not direct sales or a franchise. We control our own products, image and brand.

  • I think the best question to start with is why are you looking for a WAH business? Then I would ask what are you looking for? What are your passions? What interests you? What are your strengths? Then, with the answers to these questions, you can begin your search for a company that fits what YOU determined is best for you. You should only work with a company that aligns with your goals and not one that convinced you to join.

  • I share my WAH company with others only because it worked for me. I was a customer for this company for about a year and procrastinated about joining until I saw their statistics (I'm anaylitical) so the numbers "inticed" me because I saw something good. Plus I used the product and kept buying the product myself so it was a good fit. And go figure I procrastinated because I didn't think I would ever do something like this and I proved to myself that if you put your mind and "heart" to something, then anything is possible. You should only do something that you LOVE and can Love that way it will never be just another "Job". I put my heart into it and now I do it full time and it pays me full time. So anything is possible~ IF you want it bad enough! Good luck in your research~ I think it is very good of you to research something to find "your fit".

  • You've received a lot of great advice. Depending on your current situation and passion you need to know what would work out best for you and your family. Of course you want something that is safe & sustainable and would be something you would truly enjoy doing and sharing with others. For me, the company I joined is not a MLM company, there is no stock to purchase, and there are no parties. I have truly enjoyed the supportive team I have worked with as well as a company that stands behind its products. It is a great fit for my family and is something I can do at my own pace and anywhere I go.
