Who has more than one home business? Is it overwhelming?

I am currently representing a wellness company and I am considering starting a Brown Bag business too. Am I over-extending myself with 2 businesses?

  • depends on your schedule. I have a home daycare and I have a business with Mary Kay. I have been laid up from surgery so I have been rebuilding my MK business. Soon I will just do MK> > I am not familar with Brown Bag. I would love to share the details of MK with you...We make 50% on everything and you could tie that in with your welness products...just a thought. Let me know if you are interested.
    Only $50 to get our starter kit thru 4/30. Valued at over $600!!
    NO TERRITORIES AND NO SALES QUOTAS PLUS NO MONTHY FEES
    I will look forward to hearing from you...God Bless and good luck!!

  • I tried doing Mela and PPL for 2 months ..way too much, mela just demands too much time realistically
    I dropped IT and stuck with PrePaid Legal b/c I make WWWAAAYYYY more for WAYYY less time.

    Id be happy to share...I had a rather large team and most followed suit. That was 1 1/2 yrs ago... now I work about 20 hours a weeek and make about 5 K a month from my dining room

  • Let me tell you you have to be a HELL OF A LOT more of a salesman with Melaleuca...I did it for 2 1/2 years! I made more money with PPL in 7 months than 2 1/2 years in TOTAL with Mela..

    It is a business that is about teaching and relationships....I dont need to hard sell with this...

  • I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization (along with medical billing and small business marketing), I also do career and job search coaching.
