For those who do direct sales, is it your primary source of income or do you also work outside of the home?

That's great that it is working for you! I've tossed around the idea of doing direct sales as my fulltime income, but I'm not quite ready to make that leap yet.

Currently part time income only. The kids take the rest of my time!

Part Time and I mean literally part time. I started to sell Thirty One in July and I don't have sales every month.

I have a hard time getting sales actually.

I started out in Feb with Party Gals and I want it to be my fulltime Income but it's a little difficult to dedicated the amount to time needed to get it off the ground. I have 2 parties this weekend and I'm hoping for great sales. @Brandy Luing, what do you do exactly? I've worked as a call agent from home before and it didn't last long. But I am interested in WAH work maybe overnight while the girls sleep

I think with any MLM, you have to give it a year and then take a look and see if you are enjoying it and if you've grown at all. It takes time, but it can be so worth it, especially when you ahve very small ones and get to do the school runs.

I do direct sales and blogging full time from home. I'm with Visalus and my blogs are health/weight loss related. I've made more money in my two months with Visalus than I did in my last network marketing company in a year!

I work from home part time - full time with Tastefully Simple. I am a Team Manager and have a good sized team from all over the US that also provides me with additional income. It is a great opportunity. I love the freedom and the opportunity to be home with my kids while making great money.

It's my only income too! I replaced my FT job income so that I could stay at home with my kids

I have a FT job working 4 10 hour shifts at night (doing IT) and I stay home w/kids during the day... Just started selling customizable lockets from Origami Owl ~ Origami Owl
I'm hoping that within the next year I am making enough to quit my FT job and switch to FT direct sales. Right now I've only been doing it a month and love it. I will update in about 6 months =)

I started last year doing online marketing as PT job. It's a lot to learn when you start from the beginning. No Sales this month or last month. If all goes well I can give up my FT job and make direct online sales as a FT job.

I work full time outside of the home and joined with Origami Owl back in October of last year.

It has been great, but I think with any direct sales business it takes time to build a customer base and get your name out there unless you are starting with a huge network already. I've never done direct sales of any kind before so this is a learning experience for me, but so far I've had success with it and LOVE it!

I became a stay at home mom in April of last year and started doing direct sales in July. It was an extra income for a few months then my husband lost his job so it was our only source of income for about 4 months, granted it wasn't terrific but it did help keep us afloat. It's now back to being an extra source of income. My goal is for it to eventually be our main source!

I have been doing Direct sales for 6 months now. I don't do too bad, I'm just starting, but I can definitely see how it COULD make a full-time income soon. I think the best thing about direct sales is the friends you meet along the way. I have made some very awesome life-long friends already through my company

I'm looking to build a team of self-motivated individuals for a legitimate work at home opportunity. If you were like me, you are probably tired of searching for these types of jobs...only to be let down after you hear about what the work entails.

With the opp0rtunity I'm presenting to you, there is no selling, no inventory to house or track, no cold calling, and no "parties" to host. The income is very real though...and you can work full or part-time. Many team members have built their businesses and are already making at least $60,000 while only working about 10 hours a week from home. Additionally, full training will be provided and you will have tons of support along the journey.

I'd be happy to share this opportunity with you. Serious inquiries welcome! Please reply with your name and a phone number to reach you at. The sooner you start, the sooner your financial freedom begins.
