Hi, all mommies. I am new to my town and don't know anyone. I wanted to get into direct selling as a way to meet people, earn some money and pass my time productively. Does anyone have any ideas how to start? I also would love to connect to a supportive network of moms and maybe build some friendships.

Hi Tina,
It's nice to meet you and introduce myself to you. I just joined this community and I'm truly blessed to have found a place where I can network with other Moms. My suggestion to you is first find out what interests you most. There are alot of opportunities/products in Direct Sales. I myself have a Mary Kay business and health/wellness business via Ardyss International. I love both of the company's I represent and have met some phenomenal women. I get the opportunity to change women & men's lives from the outside and inside. So please, research the company's, ask other's their opinions and make sure you interview the person who introduces you to the opportunity to see if you can work with them and they can offer you the necessary training in your new endeavor.

If you would like further information from me. I am willing to answer any questions you might have. I can be reached at http://www.ardysslife.com/biancag or www.marykay.com/bgriffin7

Hello Tina

First thing is what do you LOVE? Is it cooking, organizing, shoes, candles, jewelry? What strikes you as the thing you can not image not having? Start there. I have two companies. Here is why ; one is a product I would purchase ALL the time so it made sense to sell it. The other is helping others be creative which is something I have always done in one way or another.

Holidays are right around the corner so starting now would give you the ability to meet new people and take advantage of the time of year.

I wish you the best of luck with your decision and will be happy to chat about it, I know a lot about different companies as I have looked into most of them prior to choosing what I have done. I may be able to help guide you to the type of product that best fits you even if it is not one of mine :)

My two are SoyL Scents 100% soy candles made in USA www.mysoycandles.biz
and South Hill Designs window lockets telling stories & capturing memories in time with charm and creativity. www.locketsofcharm.com

I've been with The Pampered Chef for over 10 years now. I started when my two sons were toddlers and I needed something constructive for ME! Lucrative was a bonus! It's easy to get started because you can invite people in (or to another location) and ply them with food! EVERYONE eats, so EVERYONE has to cook to some extent. Add practicality to the mix and you're set. Jewelry is nice, but not a necessary expense. Candles are a luxury in this economy...etc. But every one needs good sturdy kitchen tools. I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you have. i'm an open book. iamchef dot leighann at the y.com (yahoo)

Tina, I'm a consultant for Rodan+Fields Skincare - they build PROACTIV into a $1B+ brand. They were the #1 cllinical brand for Nordstroms, and then turned to Direct selling and are winning top awards for training, market development and others. Virtually everyone who has skin is a potential customer! It is the latest thing, along with a macrodermabrasion tool that you can use at home. So many young, progressive, tech-savvy young women are involved. I'd love to chat with you about it.

Tina,
Try to find a business that has a market that is not a luxery for people to buy. For instance, try to find products or services that people are already spending money on...and it will be easy to get customers/ business owners.
Good luck!

Chances of failing with this business are slim to none, but if it just doesn't pan out for you, you keep EVERYTHING in the started kit so your not losing out!!

I didn't read everyone's response so don't know if anyone else mentioned this, but as far as a supportive network of mom's (outside of what you decide to do for direct sales) I would highly suggest seeing if there is a M.O.P.S. group in your area. (mothers of preschoolers) It's a great way to meet other moms in your area and make friends.

Rodan + Fields® Dermatologists is changing skin and changing lives by partnering with independent business owners across the United States to bring innovations in anti-aging skincare to everyone. Founded by world-renowned dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, the creators of Proactiv® Solution, Rodan + Fields' patent-pending AMP MD™ System makes real results possible at home without injections or other invasive procedures.

Named the 2010 Rising Star by the Direct Selling Association (DSA) for its dedication to achieving a high standard of excellence in business operations, Rodan + Fields is the anti-aging company to watch.Some of the most successful businesses in the world are those that deal in genuine products and use multilevel marketing, also known as network marketing. Most companies that use this type of marketing for their products have not only been able to escape the financial turmoil and economic recession currently underway around the world, they have actually registered growth, both in terms of revenues as well as customer numbers.A good example of one such company is Rodan and Fields. This multilevel company was founded by two doctors. They are Dr. Kathy Fields and Dr. Katie Rodan. These two doctors founded this company in the year 2002. The main products available here are facial products that focus on getting rid of signs of premature aging, sunscreens, hand and body lotions as well as products that get rid of acne, redness and skin irritation.

A Rodan and Fields Review indicates that both Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields discovered and founded Proactiv Solution, a product that is very effective in the treatment and eradication of acne. Entrepreneurs and business people seeking to benefit from selling the Rodan and Fields products can do so by taking advantage of the good products as well as the opportunity available for network marketing.

Tina,

I an a conulstant with Tupperware and also with Thirty-One gifts. I love both of them!!

I started with Tupperware a year ago. I had gone to a show at a friends house and the consultant, who is now my director, was AMAZING! After thee show was over everything she had talked about was goig through my head and I decided that I really wanted to be part of the Tupperware Family. At first I got in it to get a good discount on new Tupperware, but then people around the area were so excited to see a Tupperware consultant back around. I have done lots of vendor shows, catalog shows and even had tables set up in the mall. It has been great! You get 25% commission and get great prices on samples for current flyers and catalogs. Plus the other incentives are great! We offer 2 different package to start with: $79.99 you get $350 worth of product or for $119.99 you get over $550 worth of product. Tupperware is the best selling direct sells item, it has been around for 64 years and has been continually growing!!

I have the perfect opportunity for you...a direct selling company that is at ground level...so now is the time to get on board while there is no competition and you can build your business!! The doctors who created PROACTIV...Rodan & Fields now have a skin care line targeting the most common areas of concern including one for anti-aging. They only direct sales company that went from department store to direct sales. They sold their products in Neiman Marcus from 2002-2007 and were the highest grossing skin care line. In 2008 they did a pilot program in CA...moving into the direct sales market. In 2009 they were named the fastest growing direct sales company. In 2010 they did a market expansion to all states. Already they have received the DDS Award 2 years in a row. Imagine where you would be if you had the opportunity to partner with them on Proactiv!! Now is the time to take advantage of this opportunity....that is why I did it. It has been great and easy to grow since it is at ground level. The only direct sales company that gets the most free press in all major magazines. One of Oprah's favorites! The Today show says it is the "must" have products! Check it out www.rodanandfields.com/Home contact me at staciwilson@hotmail.com See the products at www.swilson0703.myrandf.com along with the clip from the Today Show! You will love it and have the chance to meet tons of people since this is so new! No inventory needed and no delivering of products as it is an internet based company!!

Depending on the type of business you are into. You could pass out samples as a ice breaker with your business card. Thats what I do with Scentsy....

I am a Cookie Rep and having so much fun! I became a Cookie Lee Consultant because after being a mom to my now 18 year old son Brandon an avid ice hockey player. We spent the last 15 years at hockey practice, travel tournaments and games, 6 nights a week and every weekend since he was 3 at an Ice rink. I am a happily married to my best friend and husband for years.

But now times are changing my son is now a young adult.

Which is leaving me with a lot of free time and not having asked myself in Years

“What do I want to do?”

I frankly don’t even remember what I used to like to do with my time.

Mothers over the course of raising their families seem to lose their identity. We are always someone’s momma or someone’s wife, not that there is anything wrong with that.

I enjoyed every second! I was ready for a change; I just didn’t know what until I received an email from a friend who recently joined Cookie Lee.

I saw how excited she was and how much fun she was having and I was hooked and signed up without even seeing an actually show! I couldn’t wait to get home to send emails contact new and old friends and pass on the excitement I was feeling. I barely slept that night I was thinking of all the great opportunities wonderful new friends and some much needed girl time that awaited me! I want everyone to get excited and experience this with me. If you are ready to feel awesome and look amazing!



Contact me to start your Journey! You can also Visit me on Face book

www.cookielee.biz/karenkane



Wear it, Share it, Sell it!~ For $99 you get gorgeous pieces of jewelry ($200 value), 25 catalogs, and all the supplies you need to kick off our Cookie lee Jewelry business!

Even if you just love the jewelry, you get to start out with these pieces, and order for 25% off till you hit $375 wholesale, then you earn 50% off.

It'll be the best $99 you ever spent! Inbox me for details and send me your email address and I'll send you an invitation to sign up!

The incentives (freebies) the company offers are superior too!

Tina,
Boy do you have your work cut out for you with these responses! I'm sure it is overwhelming. Three years ago my family and I packed up and moved across country with two little girls for my husbands job. Luckily we love it where we are now, but we didn't have any friends or family here. So I know what it is like. We have settled in now as I know you will in time. When we moved, I found the best way to meet people was to really get involved in the kids schools. Volunteering, PTA, stuff like that and at church too. Also just taking walks around my neighborhood and talking to everyone and anyone! When it comes to starting a home based business, think about the products you like, use or know someone who does. Look at the many different companies. Figure out how much time each week you want to devote to it. How comfortable are you talking to everyone and anyone? Look on company websites and find consultants who live near ,for these companies so that you are able to have a good support system. I will admit that might not always be necessary, but it is one good way to meet someone nearby! Make sure you like and know what kind of sponser this person will be to you. There are many people who want you to sign up under them. Find out what kind of support and training and availability you will have from them. Many people join, to find their sponsor went awol. Also think about start up costs and what kind of budget you have to help you business grow. I know most companies say you don't need stock or to spend a lot for startup, but you do need business supplies, business cards, labels, more phone minutes, more gas and mileage expenditures. Now some of this might now apply to you, but it did to me thats why I bring it up. One other thing I would like to bring up is, simplicity and marketability. How simple is the product(s) to explain or demo? How much product is necessary for you to bring to your parties and how long will setting up and take down take? Can you wear T shirt and jeans to your parties or are you in full dress and makeup and heals? What do you feel more comfortable in? Lots of questions, but they might help you narrow your choices.
At the end of the day, I chose Scentsy. I love the products, they are safe, simple and fun. I love the company and all the amazing things they are doing in the industry and are very active in giving back in their community and within multiple charitable organizations. And I love that we as consultants help to boost each other and help when needed rather than seeing each other as competion and tearing each other down. There will always be pettiness, but we have our Scentsy Spirit!
So I hope this helps Tina! I hope you and your family are settling in ok. And I'm sure you will find the right company for you! Good Luck!

I am a Shaklee director. Shaklee has been around for over 50 years. They are a health and wellness company backed by science and clinical trials. Their pay and rewards are the best in the world. Really, they do reasearch to make sure they are the best. The reason I got involved was because of my children's health benefits drastically improved, when I switched to their cleaning products. My son with asthma no longer needs any prescription drugs. Shaklee is a green company that believes we should give back to the environment and not take away. I would love to share more with you!

hello there, good to hear from you.....here is some information for you....You can also look on my website and it will tell you more. With PartyLite, I get paid according to my Show sales - my weekly income is 25% of the sales. There's also a monthly bonus of 7% of sales as soon as sales reach $2,000 in one month. Here are some examples of the income you can expect based on a Show average of $350 and earning bonus:8 Shows per month $896 per month
12 Shows per month $1,344 per month
You decide how many Shows you hold - and you decide your income! You can also earn more by building a team. With a team of just six Consultants, you'll earn profit on your own sales and the sales of your Consultants - as much as $1,000 more every month!
Question
How much money can I earn selling PartyLite products?
Answer
You get 25% income on the sales of each Show or about $100 for an average Show. You can earn more by doing more Shows, and when you build your team.


Question
What does it cost to become a PartyLite Consultant?
Answer
When your Starter Show has sales of $350, it doesn't cost anything - your Starter Kit is FREE.


Question
How much time do I have to spend on my business?
Answer
You decide, based on how many Shows a week you want to do. A Show lasts about an hour, but you might want to consider travel time and follow up as well.


Question
Can I just call PartyLite to get a Starter Kit and become a Consultant?
Answer
Getting off to a good start is really much easier when you have a one-on-one relationship with someone who is already working with PartyLite.


Question
How old do you have to be to become a Consultant?
Answer
You have to be at least 18 years old to become a Consultant.


Question
What if I move? Can I still be a Consultant?
Answer
If you move to any other U.S. state, you can continue your business wherever you go. Some of our top people have team members in more than one state.
If you would like to know more information feel free to call me after 5 at 330-442-7918 I will be more than happy to talk with you.
The best thing about Partylite is that it is absolutly free to start. All you have to do is have a party invite your friends in family over for a girls night in and have 350 in sales and you kit is absolutly free. If you do not like the business after your first 6 shows the kit is still yours to keep.

Be careful!!! There are a lot f risky businesses out there that just want your money! A lt of people really get hurt! Fortunately there are some risk-free opportunities out there, but they are hard to find.
I help other moms earn a dependable and residual income without selling or investing, there is absolutely no risk involved. We have the BBB Hall of Fame, INC 500 Hall of Fame, and an amazing 25 year track-record of consitent growth. I'd be happy to share the opportunity with you if you are ever open to listening!

Not sure if you picked a business yet or not but there are a lot of awesome opportunities out there. You just need to go with what you can relate to. I have been a Tupperware Manager + for over 10 years. I have been able to raise my 4 children while I worked from home. Make great money and have even earned some trips! Why I like Tupperware is because we have a product that lasts a long time and we are all about saving people money on their grocery bills and saving them time in their kitchens. My other passion is health and fitness. I recently signed up to be a coach with Beachbody. You can visit my site at www.beachbodycoach.com/lemmer. The reason that I did this was to get my workout dvds and supplements at a discount but also to help others realize their fitness goals. After my fourth child I lost 40 pounds the old fashion way! Very proud of that fact. Eating right and exercising can make a big difference in how you feel every day and that is important when you stay home with your kids. My 2 and 3 1/2 year olds are still home with me while the other two are in school now and they will workout with me. It's a great way to teach them lessons that will last a lifetime! Let me know if I can help you with either business. Good luck hunting!

Hi Tina! I am an independent consultant for Scentsy. This direct selling opportunuty is so fun and informal - it amazingly sells itself. I recently finished my masters and was looking for something to earn some money for the summer. I signed on under a friend to sell Scentsy and it is going like wildfire. Basically, we sell warmers which warm highly scented, long lasting wax with a light bulb instead of a flame. There are over a hundred scents to choose from and you can do home partys or basket (catalog) partys. I found this to be great for my social life. I have re-connected with some old friends and made tons of new ones. It is great to sit around and chat with people while smelling all the sample scents. I have worked for other companies in the ds industry and this one is great in terms of communication, support and quality. I am thrilled that I decided to do this and think it would be a great opportunity for you. Scentsy is a new company and the market is not flooded - it is a great time to lauch your business. I would love to talk to you more about this if you think it is for you. Take care and best wishes on your venture.

I thought you might be interested in a product that I tried after having my baby girl who is now 4 months old. I not only tried the products and was amazed at what it did for my body, but also started my own business with it as a stay at home mom because I'm amazed at what it can do to help new moms or even anyone looking to reshape their body. Please visit my website and let me know what you think.

Hi Tina,

I am a daytime stay at home mom with an amazing 3 year old boy. I was looking for an opportunity to stay at home with my son and still be able to work a little more -- Thirty-One Gifts was the opportunity I was looking for. I loved the philosophy behind the company and the people within it!

Thirty One Gifts offers a unique product line, ranging from purses and hand bags to stationary and personalized accessories. Thirty One products are outstanding, unique, and are very-high, if not the highest, quality. The Thirty One Gifts mission is to celebrate, encourage and reward, because of this we put all effort to ensure our products are cleverly designed, gift-able, affordable and of very high quality. Gifts from Thirty One will always bring a smile to the recipients face.

The best part is that I create my own hours. I can work as little or as much as I would like. The income possibilities are endless. There are also fantastic rewards and incentives with this company.

Check out my website at http://www.mythirtyone.com/argarland for more information and see the amazing Thirty-One products. Feel free to message me at any time :-)
