I work for three direct sales companies. I do anywhere from one to four shows a month and then I also get paid from my websites. Two of the companies I have been purchasing from for over 10 years now and the other I loved their product and it is very affordable! I have had huge success with all three, if you are interested in the details send me a private message. It costs anywhere from $50 on up to get started, even less when they run specials! Hope this is what you wanted!

I'm a remote employee, I dont own my own business. I have an actual job with benefits and taxes. I just do it from home.  To be honest I applied for a job that said nothing about it being from home. I was just considering going back to work when our daughter was 3 months old. We have never been a single income family and it was driving me nutts! I applied for this job I saw on careerbuilder a month went by and finally a call my interview was on a Sunday odd I thought... but still went to it. At the interview I found out it was a WAHJ, I could not have been happier! I was a little leery at first, but this job didnt require me to put a penny down. That is how I knew it was legit. They even pay for everything I use.  I've been with my company for almost 2 years now and I love it infact I'm working right now...

I do direct sales, but no parties. There just aren't a lot of reps in my area for this company, and people already know of/heard of the product so it's pretty easy to sell it.

Working at home is different than having a work at home business.  One you are an employee of another company, the latter you are a business owner...Are you entrepreneurial or just want a paycheck?

I personally do both...I have a business that I want to work into full time.  My husband and I own a retail website called paradigmsolutions.biz   It is full of commodities so there is lots of return business.  But while I work into that I nanny two kids during the day and build my business at night or in my spare time.  As an owner of a business I am entitled to all the responsibilities and perks allowed by the govt (like about a 100 tax incentives because we stimulate the economy and create jobs)

I own my own business and I do parties.  I am also thinking about taking on a second one for the fun of it with a different company.  I set my own hours, work as much or as little as I want and I have a great group of people that I work with and share ideas with...
