Who here has ever been involved with sales or is involved with them now? Which companies have you sold through? Which have you found the best and worst? How much work do you have to put into building up your client base to see a real difference?

Not I. Swore a long time ago I'd never do sales. I hate it and I'm horrible at it.

I tried Avon, not sure if that counts. I was horrible at it and didn't enjoy it. That's just me, though.

I don't think I would be very good at selling through a company like Avon, I just don't think I could build up enough sales. There are some people at my school job who do things like avon on the side but I just don't think I'd be very good at it.

I really wanted to make it work. My step-mom used to do it, and enjoyed it. But, it just didn't work out for me.

I tried Avon, didn't work. I also tried Melaluca and that didn't work either.

I am just not good at selling products

I swore I'd NEVER do sales again either. I'm glad my "nevers" always come back to bite me!

I did Mary Kay and The Body Shop at Home once upon a time. Failed at both.

Gave it one more shot with Scentsy and I'm SO glad I did. These products sell themselves so I don't have to be pushy - I'm not a salesperson at all!

I just started with a company called Jewels by Park Lane. I used to be with Creative Memories. I love the product but it was difficult to keep up with their requirements ($500 every 3 months). With this company I donít have any monthly requirements to meet. I usually put in a few hours a day. I am brand new so I havenít built up my business yet but I am in the process of doing so. It really only take one recruit to start making a difference in your paycheck. This jewelry company has such a great support team so even though I have just started I have been given a wealth of information from several different people on my team. I feel prepared, confident, and supported with this company. I am looking forward to building my business and going to Las Vegas in February for my 2nd convention and even to Ireland in March! Not to mention all the free jewelry I get!!
