  • Questions You Should Ask
    Before you sign up, be sure to ask questions about the following:
    • Start up costs. The start up costs in direct selling companies is generally modest – usually the cost of a sales kit – and are often less than $100. Legitimate companies want to make it easy and inexpensive for you to start. On the contrary, pyramid schemes make their money through fees paid by new recruits or by loading inventory and/or training aids on them. High entry fees should be a warning sign.
    • Unsold inventory. Be sure to ask how much inventory (if any) you will be required to purchase and what the terms of return are if you decide to leave the business. DSA member companies, for example, are required to buy back unsold marketable inventory and sales aids purchased within the prior 12 months if you decide to quit the business, for at least 90 percent of the price you paid for them.

  • I have a direct sales business with Wildtree.
    I have three Full Time Blogs and a part time blog - all of which earn through ads and affiliates
    I have a website that ties everything I do together - although I'm revamping at the moment.
    I am an affiliate with about 30 different companies
    And I am an affiliate with both SwagBucks (which I use to earn Amazon GCs) and BigCrumbs...

  • I have a home based business with Prepaid Legal services and one thing I have learned over the years with various companies IS NOT how much it costs to get started..making it a criteria for it not being worth it, but what am i receivng for my start up...products, training courses, websites, materials etc.
    Those companies that are super cheap to get into 2.00-10.00-20.00 often dont pay much better than that without serious serious work.

    Ive been doing my business nearly 2 years, and I make a FT income in PT hrs. I invested less than 200 dollars, which I made back in 36 hrs. and Ihave a business that has NO renewal or quota and I can WILL to my children to earn daily residuals for the life of the business

  • Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization (along with small business marketing and medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.
