  • I sell it all products & services such as cell phone, internet, bunk beds, clothing, organic skin care...there is nothing that is not available through my site... I don't have product inventory, shipping expense, & I don't handle money for transactions all that is done by the manufacturers or service providers!!

  • I've been with 5 or 6 companies before finding one where I actually make money. I was with Avon for years working my butt off, advertising as much as I could in creative ways that Avon even published in their newsletters....but the most I made a campaign after expenses was maybe $30 (That's $15 a week)! It was hard and I spent a LOT more than I ever made.

    Now I'm a beachbody coach.....I sell workout programs such as P90X, Insanity, TurboFire and other health products such as supplements and their meal replacement shake called Shakeology. But other than selling I also literally "coach"....I motivate, inspire and help others on their own journey of losing weight and/or getting fit.

    And because I found a company that is a true match for me, I'm doing wonderful and starting to make actual money! I couldn't be happier with Beachbody!

  • I am with Wildtree. I love what I do! Our products are all natural, MSG, Additive, Preservative and Food Dye FREE! Which is awesome for us since I have Fibromyalgia, my DH has ADHD and our oldest son has an anxiety issue - all of which are exacerbated by the added chemicals. Personally, I think working for yourself is better than working for anyone else. The income is wonderful and the fact that I know I'm actually helping other families get healthy! My big piece of advice is to find something you can get excited about, if you aren't excited you won't have the motivation to earn what you want...

    Best Wishes!

  • I have a business with Arbonne International and yes it's all worth it. You can treat it as a hobby and make what I called my "Marshalls Money", or you can treat it as if you bought a franchise and run with it. The guidance and training this company has provided me is unbelievable. If I can help you in ANY way, please let me know. Be careful of companies that say they do not sell order to put money in your pocket, it has to come from someone elses and the only way it leaves someone elses pocket is they got something in return (ie bought something) Goo luck and best wishes

  • I tried Arbonne once, right after my daughter was born and I never made a cent. It was terrible. If you don't recruit people, you never make money, so I stopped that. That was 5 years ago though.
