What are the best products to sell from home?

I want to make some extra money so I was looking into selling products from home. I have found silver jewelry, candles and passion products. Are there any other products to sell. Where can I find information on how to start selling? Does it cost a lot of money to start selling?

  • I am a Pure Romance consultant and our company has been around for over 15 yrs. Our founder is a single mother of 4 and started this business in her basement. I make on average about $400 a party and I get to stay home with my son because I only work weekends. If you want to find out more, view my journal "FAQs". I cant go back to a normal job because I love PR!

  • i think Avon rocks. I wish I'd gotten into that instead of MaryKay and wasted a fortune I'm still paying off :\ Avon has lots of stuff to offer. PR would be an option, too, as really anyone who doesn't shop eBay for those items would more than likely shop from you

  • Personally I tried EVERY product Iine I could find. None of them were worth the time. They are all over saturated now a days or just not wanted. I do Ameriplan now. It's not a product but it's a service. It's not a want but a need. Everyone wants health and dental benefits they can afford. Lets face it when money gets tight the first thing to go is the candles and the kitchen extras and the make up you don't need... Health care is a need... here find out what we do. watch this. or visit my website

  • I think it truly depends on how passionate you can be about the products/companies you are considering.

    How much time are you willing to invest if you want to start a business? Way your options.

    Consider how many ways you can earn money with each company. Review their compensation plans?

    What kind of consumer are you looking to attract?

    These are just a few things I considered being a mother, I wanted a business that I could include my family into. They are learning the business very early. Take a look at what I do. If you think it's something you would like additional information about, give me a call or email me.

  • I make around $30.00 a day "giving away" things I used to sell on eBay. I'm getting rid the stuff I don't need in my home and I make a pretty good living. eMail me if you are interested.
