looking to work from home, any ideas?

[deleted account] ( 145 moms have responded )

Hello everyone, I want to work from home, but most companies want a big upfront payment or they require a lot of time. Does anyone out there know of any companies that they could recommend? I was wondering if anyone knows anything about avon? Also, any companies that people have tried and not liked and, reason why, would be helpful also. Thank you very much!

There are many ways to earn. I love what I do and most of all, the company is not a scam and requires no sales quotas. We give back, which is important and I love the products. Would love to enter you all in our monthly drawing at www.200gifts.com

I am an ambassador with Plexus Slim. I work from home and have built a great team and client base. I never thought I would have the opportunity to be at home with my children and still be able to contribute to my family finances.


WHAT IS PLEXUS YOU ASK...

Plexus Worldwide is a wellness company. Plexus is a get healthy product that levels blood sugars, as it was developed for diabetics. It levels cholesterol/lipid levels, lowers high blood pressure, helps control the appetite and prevent food cravings, helps strengthen will-power over poor food choices as it steers you away from carbs and sugars, helps boost energy levels, helps maintain long-term weight loss. Plexus is also helping people with symptoms of fibromyalgia, arthritis and migraines and many other conditions. There are so many amazing, real life stories! (and I have one of them!) It is all natural and gluten free. Plexus promotes loss of weight by burning fat not muscle. Plexus is giving MANY people another chance at life. One of the AMAZING ingredients in Plexus Slim is Garcinia Cambogia. Garcinia Cambogia is all natural. It is the newest, fastest, fat burner on the market. Garcinia Cambogia reduces the conversion of carbohydrates into stored fat by inhibiting certain enzyme processes. When less fat is available for use and slowed down, the body burns calories at an accelerated pace. They experienced curbed appetite and less tendency to "nibble," and an increase in energy. Plexus is a little packet of Cherry flavored powder that you mix with your water once a day....add the accelerator for faster results! It's simple, convenient and it works! No counting calories, no chalky shakes, no meal replacements and no special diet!! Plexus is the simple solution to losing weight and getting healthy that you have been looking for...don't wait to start your journey today to better health and wealth!

I'd be remiss if I didn't tell you all about my career as an Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay. I am now a work-at-home Mom and my own boss, working at growing my own business. Mary Kay provides training, product knowledge & an awesome support base so I have help when I need it most!

Have you tried Mary Kay products? And, do you have a beauty consultant???? If not, then let's get together--soon!

You may like hearing these facts also--in the great depression,tobacco, alcohol, and cosmetics survived.

Today Mary Kay is doing quite well--recruiting is at an all time high. Women are tired of working 60-80 hours. So they are starting their own home based businesses, setting their own hours, and working around family. As far as sales go, women will not give up their cosmetics because cosmetics make them feel good. And, when they look good, they feel great!

RIGHT NOW there are 1.8 MILLION women working for themselves, successfully selling Mary Kay.
In this time of recession our lipstick sales are up 40%. That's right, UP 40%! And Mary Kay is a secure company they have ZERO DEBT.

I was a little skeptical at first. I would never sell a product that i wouldn't use myself. I'm amazed at how well the products [skin care & make up] I'm trying are working. I want to share this amazing opportunity with as many professional women as I can. So that together we can change lives, one face at a time.

For more information please check out my website: http:/www.marykay.com/KateRoss or e-mail KateRoss@MaryKay.com. Phone calls are always welcome at 734.353.9225. I would love to hear from you.
http://www.marykay.com/kateross/content/...

Metro Detroit MOMS:
You work hard all day and sometimes all night too.
You deserve to be pampered; you certainly do.
And get treated like a model just for being YOU!

You are cordially invited to indulge yourself
and join me Tuesdays at 6:30pm*
for a complimentary facial.

Please R.S.V.P. to myself, Kate Ross
At 734.353.9225 as space is limited.

I’m looking forward to seeing you at our Mary Kay Studio located at 33150 Schoolcraft Road [on the West side between Merriman & Farmington] in Livonia, MI.

Hi, I found the perfect business. It is called Mialisia Jewelry. Check out my website at http://jennysjewelry.mialisia.com to find out more. It is just about to launch and it is going to blow the roof off once it does!! It is only $49 to hold your place as a founding designer.

Pamela,

If you do NOT have a product and are just recruiting people to sell more recruiting and not a product that is a Pyramid Scheme.



There are legitimate companies out there to have at home businesses.

Avon, Mary Kay, Arbonne, Pampered Chef, Xpress Healthcare, US Born Books.

Just to name a few.



If you are looking to start your own business with your own products or services I recommend Fabienne Fredrickson and the Client Attraction Workshop. She is a Mentor and it cost money to invest in her programs and products but they are worth it. You also get a lot for FREE from her. If you want her website information you can go to my FaceBook wall and click the link.



I have worked for AmeriPlan and they are not a good company. Their integrity is zero. You can see why at Rip Off Report, or AmeriPlan Fires 900. Both articles can be Googled.



I now work for Xpress Healthcare and they are a good company.

I have worked Mary Kay Cosmetics they are good. You just need to have a circle of friends who will spend to get you started or spend yourself for products to have that you can sell.

And build outwards that way. Some have great success others it takes longer. Different variables for each.

Avon is good but a lot of products change all the time and I did not like that.

Plus, if you don't collect ahead for orders you can get stuck paying for it or ruining your credit with the company. I got stuck with over a hundred dollar order and could NOT afford to pay it at the time. Lesson Learned! CASH UPFRONT. Checks can bounce....if you take checks wait a week before you order to be sure they clear!



Herbalife is another one that is good but not a lot of people have heard of them even though they have been around for years.



Always investigate.

Rip Off Report

Google

BBB A+ means NOTHING it is a purchased rating!

IF they say you will make is a short period of time....GET RICH QUICK!!! RUN AWAY!!!

NO ONE CAN TELL YOU WILL MAKE X AMOUNT OF DOLLARS....IT DEPENDS ON YOU AND YOUR WORK ETHIC!





GOOD LUCK.

I HOPE THAT HELPS.

Hi Moms! I know how hard it is sometimes to juggle everything in our homes. Sometimes we need to take a little time for ourselves. That is why I got into the business I am in. I love what I do, as I get to meet a lot of new friends. The best part is all my work,is done online. Face book I can put in as many hours as I want and still be able to attend to my family. This company has phenomenal growth happening right now. I would love for you to take a look at it. It doesn't cost a thing to look and ask questions. I can tell you that there is an amazing support group of women just like ourselves. The products make you feel beautiful inside and out. Take a break make a cup of tea or coffee and have a look around. If you would like to know more just contact me through this link. Thanks for your time

I recently started working for Younique. It's a direct sales makeup company, and let me tell you, it's incredible. There's a $99 startup kit cost, but you get over $400 worth of makeup in it. I made the 99 back in my first few days so it was so worth it! Theres no more fees, no autoships, nothing after that! you get the chance to grow your business as much as you want. I'm a sham of twins so when they nap I work online :) All you do is advertise to your friends and family or anywhere else online and get paid great commissions! The compensation plan is amazing. You can browse the website here, and email me with any questions!!

This is a great question! I worked several times with different home based businesses and I FINALLY found the one that compliments me and my goals with my family!

Being apart of companies that sell products you need to be able to either A. have use for them in your home, and then what happens when, for example, you have all the tupperware imaginable and cannot add one more item to your cupboards. I have been there, I don't want the rewards of more bowls, I want Cash!!! B. You find something like a makeup company that you do use the products but how does this help the whole family. Boys are not that into skin care - no matter what age.

This brings me to what I do. I am very health conscious! I read labels in the grocery store, I try to buy as much organic food as possible. I am teaching my whole family to choose the appropriate balance of food groups according to the national food guide. So how do I bring this to my home based business? FOOD, real whole food that is sourced from the best quality in the world! Food that you can give a child as young as 4 years old. As we eat, I make money! Do you want to put money in your grocery stores bank account or do you want to reallocate those funds to your own bank account? I chose to reallocate to my own account and it has been the greatest decision I have ever made! Yes I do go to the grocery store once a week for a few items - I have kids!

I would love to share this with EVERYONE, because I know that if it has changed my life than I know it can change your families as well. Send me a quick email showing your interest. This is for me to direct you to the information you need, as I will not convince you to do anything! I provide information, you make the choices from that point forward.

I have done multiple direct sales jobs but never made money. Then I came across Jewelry In Candles and for the first time ever I am actually making real money! I have come to realize that most free sign ups are bound for failure. I paid a small fee to start Jewelry In Candles and it was the best decision I ever made! Companies that require rep kits really give you something to make your business a success. If anyone would like to try something fun that actually makes money for only $29.95 (will go up to $49.95 on April 1st) sign up here: https://www.jewelryincandles.com/store/tricia_santos/i/8/become-a-rep/
Up to 40% commission, no monthly fees and no quotas!

Thanks Corinne. I can feel for you - been there an done that with similar stuff. I have found a passive way to pay my monthly food bill which with three teenagers is no small thing these days. I am not making six figures but it is methodically getting larger. Best of all, it was FREE to start and I do not have to do any selling personally. It may be of interest for others: www.dollarbill.biz

My husband and I started with a publicly traded company and we are on the ground floor!! Think of Microsoft, Apple, or even Google. When they started, nobody knew of them! Please look at www.beintheloop.biz There is a start up fee, however if you start to work your business before you pay to come in, you would have your money back the next week!! Looking forward to helping you change your future!!

I think the most important things when looking for a company to join are:
1) Your support team within the company
2) Training materials
3) Third party tools

Even if the startup fee was $50, if they take your money and then leave you on your own to figure it out, it's not worth it. You won't be successful unless you have a team you can rely on.

Hi there! I work from home as an Independent Ambassador for Plexus Worldwide. It is a company that helps people get healthy by offering products that speak to weight loss, balancing blood sugar and cholesterol, detoxing the body, pain management, breast health, and much more! All of the products are completely all natural with no synthetic or artificial ingredients!

I joined Plexus because I truly believe in the products and what they do. They have made a huge difference in my life! I've lost 13 lbs so far and am down more than 2 dress sizes... but that isn't really the best thing! I sleep better at night and have more energy. I just feel healthier...

I told you all of that because you can't represent something that doesn't work for you! Plexus works for me! And building this business has become one of my passions! I love it!

It is only $34.95 to join Plexus as an ambassador. That is the yearly fee for your website, which you will use to manage much of your business. My team is such a wonderful support to me! We have facebook groups that allow us to train and encourage each other. None of us are doing this alone!

The compsensation plan is one of the best that I have seen. I've done Avon and Melaleuca and I've researched other companies and have not found anything that has compared! I've been doing this for a few months now and am making a good chunk of extra cash!

Like anyone that goes into business for themselves, you do have to be committed and put effort into building your business. But it brings such a sense of accomplishment and success when you know that you are doing something worthwile and you're making something out of yourself!

If you're interested in knowing more, please visit my website www.healthmatters.myplexusopportunity.com My contact information is on the home page!

I look forward to hearing from you!!!

Kitsy Lane Jewelry is a great opportunity that allows moms to open up a successful online boutique that you can call your own. You pick out your own business name and you get to design your own online storefront. What's great is that you get to hand select your own inventory that you would like to sell and you get to even pick out your own weekly sale items.
Customers order directly from your website and Kitsy Lane writes you a check each month. There are always ways to boost your online sales through online coupons, promotions, contests, etc. What's also great is you can link your facebook account and Twitter accounts to generate more sales. The jewelry sells itself because it's absolutely stunning!
If you are interested in opening up your own Jewelry Boutique ( i promise.. no startup fees.. it's risk free) go tohttp://jtbsjewelrychest.kitsylane.com/of... It's that easy!
If you would like to browse my boutique, please go to http://jtbsjewelrychest.kitsylane.com See for yourself on the stunning jewerly pieces you could sell!
With Love, Josephine
