I am looking for 5 motivated, purpose driven people this month who I can train to build an International business like I have from home.
I am with an 18 year old global home-based business in the exploding industry which has over 1 million associates & growing, 70 patents, easy duplicable system in 20 countries including USA & Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia & New Zealand, no deliveries, work around your own families commitments, full training, travel holiday incentives to be won, a rewarding business that makes a difference in other people's lives.... As well as your own.
I began this business 14 yrs ago when my disabled daughter was 2 yrs old and had very little money.

Hi Julie,
I actually came by my business from a referral from a good friend. What's great about it is that it is not a product based company. It's about saving money and making money. It has really changed my families life, both with saving money and earning it. Without getting a long reply here, this company has been in business for 14 years, is in the DSA, and has an A+ rating with D&B and the Chamber of Commerce. Definitely not a scam. My website is Doesn't hurt to look. Have a great day!

I know exactly how you feel, I try so many different home base business. But the company I represent compliments any other home base business. For more info take a look at the video on my website http://JanineLockhart.buildlastingsucces..., because you are more likely to end up in a court room than a hospital now of days. It is 38 yr old New York Stock Exchange company (NYSE)

Searching for a home business can be very time consuming and frustrating, however once you find something that you believe in and are excited to work, all the time and effort is worth it. Being able to have your own business and be in control of your time is one of the greatest accomplishments I have ever experienced. If you have already found something that is working for you best of luck and if you haven't I sent you a PM with some information you should take a look at. Have a great day.

Hi Julie, I agree with alot of what Stephanie said. You absolutely have to be passionate about what you decide to do and you need to believe in your product. I would like to add that who you choose to partner with is extremely important also. This could make or break your success in your business unless you are one of those people who will find thier way on their own. Look for a partner, mentor, team leader who you trust, (or get a sense of trust from) and who you believe is truley interested in helping YOU, not themselves. Someone who will train and mentor you every step of the way and who is capable of doing this. I am telling you, it makes such a big difference if you have someone who is willing to help you reach your goal along side you. Take your time and get all the facts because you want to try to make the right decision once. So many people bounce from one thing to the next trying to find the right thing and failing and getting discourage and sometimes decide that they just want to go back to a REAL job when really they just didn't find the right opportunity to fit them. Good luck with you search and if I can be of any help just ask. Working for yourself is definitely the way to go!

There are tons of stay at home opportunities out there. The only way to know if they are legit is by actually meeting someone in person or going with a company that is fairly well known. Now I do work from home and LOVE the company I work for but the fact of the matter is what I love may not be for you. What do you like to do? Do you enjoy make up? Green cleaning? Fitness? Purses? Jewelry? It doesn't matter what skills you poses if you are passionate about what your are doing all you have to do is share it...and you'll want to. I love scents and my passion is sharing fantastic candles. One will scent multiple rooms or even an entire floor! Alot of people like smell good stuff but if I sold crudy candles. I wouldn't be passionate about it and frankly I'd stink. There are a couple of things to consider when chosing a company.

1. what do you like/appreciate?

2. Do you want to do parties

-- if not stay away from companies that don't have websites or fundraisers

3. how aggresive are you?

-- samples sell but you may not need them if you are aggresive.

4. is it renewable or will you have to continually try to get new customers?

5. how popular is the product?

-- popular isn't always a good thing. In the selling busines it means almost everyone has a rep. It makes things alot more difficult. You want something that is both amazing and rarely heard of.

6. Do your friends and family like it?

-- this is actually pretty crucial. Parties or not they will spread the word if they believe. I have 5 people that are consistantly getting orders for me because they are excited about the product share it and sales follow. If they love it. It makes your job a whole lot easier.

7. Most importantly what is the quality of the product? Do you believe it is going to blow people away and keep them coming back for more?

When you post you want to work from home people will try to sell you. I can guarantee you won't be successful if you buy. Decide what you want to do and post it. " I want to work from home selling candles and I don't want to do parties. What are my best options?" Being specific will get you the results you want. Good luck with any business you chose Julie. Enjoy it really can be a blast.

Hi Julie,
Have you been successful in finding anything? Are you looking for a JOB that you can do from home, or a home business where you can be your own boss? There is a huge difference. If you want a job, you need to match up your skills with an employer's need. You can look into medical billing and transcribing, writing, proof reading, etc. You will be trading time for money, and have to work when the boss wants you to work. If you want your own business, being your own boss and earning a residual income, you need to ask yourself a few questions. What do you love, what are you interested in, what do you like to do. Do you like to help others? Is there something that you are really passionate about? I have a home based business where I get to help people get healthy, sleep better, have more energy and lose weight (if they need to...I also help people GAIN weight and put on muscle!) Anyway, what I'm trying to say, is that I love to get calls and e-mail from people telling me thank you for helping them improve their lives. That is what I'm passionate about..helping people! (I also love to help empower women with their own business so they can stay at home with their children if they choose to.) If you think you'd like to take a look at what I do to see if it's a fit for you, you can check out my website. (We are a health and wellness company specializing in Nutritional cleansing, helping people rid their bodys of Toxins and impuritys. We also have nutritional and skin care products) We work in teams with everyone helping everyone, so it's a lot of fun too. I'd love to help you. Good luck in your search! Have a fabulous day!

Hi Julie. I have 3 questions for you.

1) Do you send cards and gifts to people you care about?

2) Do you know other people who send cards and gifts to people they care about?

3) Would you like to make a percentage of every card and gift sent out?

If yes. Please go to my website: and watch the short video. Then, try it by sending a free card to someone you care about, postage included, on me (no obligation). Just click on "Send a Free Card" and follow along with the recording. You will be sending a REAL card, not an e-card. I have been working at home with my own greeting card company for 4.5 years and I love it. Send cards and gifts as easy as an email. Everyone sends cards and gifts and with the Christmas season just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start you own business. Our company is growing exponentially and are one of the top Fortune 500 Companies. I would be happy to send you more information. Please call me if you have any questions. I would love to help you.

Hi Julie, not sure if you are still working for work from jobs since this was posted in August. What skills do you posses? What do you NOT want to do? Do you need something that has a flexible schedule? There are writing/editing jobs available but if you are not a strong writer, then it would not make sense for me to recommend those sites.
