Let's get a list going of the different business opportunities we are all involved in. I think the more options and information people have, the easier it is to make a good decision on what's best for them. Include the following information:

Name of company
Type of products sold
Age of company
# of Independent Consultants
Basic commission rate(s)
Startup cost
What sets it apart
Personal website for more information

I will start...

Name of company: Scentsy
Type of products sold: Wickless, flameless candles -- wax bars that melt in a warmer (also sold by Scentsy) heated by a BULB, not a flame. Also sells car candles (air fresheners), room sprays, and plugins.
Age of company: 4 years
# of Independent Consultants: Hit our 10,000th new consultant a month or two ago, so roughly 11,000 by now I'm sure
Basic commission rate(s): 20% until you reach $1000 in sales (which I did in my first 2 wks), then 25-30%. Also receive commission & royalties on downline & team sales.
Startup cost: $99
What sets it apart: The safety factor (no flames = no fire hazard, no smoke, soot or lead = no health hazard). The warmers are very decorative in addition to being functional. Over 80 scents to choose from. Scentsy has a very unique "feel" to it.

Name of company Scent-Sations, Inc. / Mia Bella
Type of products sold Candles and soaps
Age of company 8 years
# of Independent Consultants Not sure
Basic commission rate(s) Depends on how you sign up. As a Candle of the Month distributor, I buy 16 ounce jars for $9.50 and sell them for $18.95, so a $9.45 commission per jar sold. Associate Distributors buy the 16 ounce jars for $13 and sell them for $18.95, making $5.95 commission
Startup cost Associate distributor--$0; Candle of the Month--$39.95 per month for the website, 1-16 ounce jar, 1 Dozen votives, and a Bella Bar Soap each month
What sets it apart They are the cleanest burning candles I've ever seen. 90% soot free, and the whole thing burns so you can just wash and reuse the jars since you don't have to throw them out because of leftover wax on the sides. They are also made from a blend of vegetable waxes to get that clean burn and hold on to the scent longer then a basic soy candle does. And they are triple scented so the smell lasts the whole way to the bottom of the jar.

Name of company Avon, Inc.
Type of products sold Make up, skin care, pedi/mani products and gadgets, bath items, home decor, clothes, shoes, jewelry, mens cologne, gadgets, all sorts of things!
Age of company OVER 100 YEARS!!! Avon started out as the California Perfume Company in 1886, 1926 was when the first Avon products started up in color brouchures, and the Avon proucts went over so well the whole company became Avon in 1939.
# of Independent Consultants 2.6 million in 1997 all over the world with 5 billion in annual sales. Have to check and update with a present number, since many, many contries have been added between then and now. Also, the stock on Avon is still going up while alot of other co's are crumbling.
Basic commission rate(s) Starts at 50% for first 4 campaigns ( 2 months-new campaign every 2 weeks). Then it's 20%-50% depending on your sales. 20% for under $144 no matter the sales, then it goes up from there.
Startup cost ONLY 10 BUCKS!!!!! 10 dollars!!!!!!!!
What sets it apart No inventory, set your own items, most customers let me bring my 14 month old with me to deliver items, Avon sells itself because it's such a powerhouse in the makeup and skincare biz. They offer so much, people prefer to order from home instead of wasting gas going to dept stores. They don't have to go anywhere, and you can write gas off on taxes for your delivery!

# of counsultants: not sure?? Not many yet?? But growing fast everyday, I think my husband and I are 4 from the very top!!

Web site for info: www.strongestomega3.com

I have just been introduced to this company, the owner Noel Turner is a good friend of the family , and has had a team of scientist and Dr.'s researching Omega 3's for over 32 years.
I was on a hunt for the best Omega3 in the world for my father after his heart surgery as he was told he MUST be on Omega 3's everyday..
This one is backed by many dr.'s and is all natural.
The other thing I love about it... Very small pill and no fish burps!! ( anyone who has taken Omega 3's can understand that !)
The company is brand new!! Will let you guys know how it goes!! Hopefully in a year it will be huge!! Keeping my fingers crossed, as I hope to be a stay at home mom very soon! : )
