I did Avon but it was not very profitable.

We have Avon STORES here so what is really the point. KWIM?

SO I'm wondering...what do you sell and how profitable is it?

Also, what did you have to invest?

Feel Free To PM me if you don't feel comfortable posting.


Yes, I think this is funny. If you do, you'll probably get along with me. If you don't, you're no fun anyway!

I sell educational toys as an independent consultant for Discovery Toys, Inc.

A $49 US/ $75 CN deposit gets you started with 14 of our classic, best-selling products. Kit includes 25 catalogs plus all of the supplies and training materials you'll need to get started! The total investment for the intro kit is $149 US/$229 CN.

You immediately earn 25% profit on the wholesale value or 20% (CN) of retail less Free Product Value of the products you sell. As you promote in rank, you can easily earn up to 40% (US)/30% (CN) on your own sales and 15% (US)/10% (CN) on your own sales and 15% on your team's sales.

Every consultant earns different amounts based on their effort, salesmanship, economy, etc.

I personally find that working with Discovery Toys is a great fit for a mother's lifestyle.

Check out the website in my signature or email me more info if you're interested.

The things that come to my mind are Tupperware and Scrapbooking...I think there are a couple scrapbooking companies out there that have consultants.

Is there anything that you do that you could sell? Setting up a site is fun but a bit of work! I was able to start my business for basically nothing! Just started small and I am slowly growing!!!! If you have any questions feel free to ask!

I sell various cloth products for natural living famlies. I started by finding something I liked to do as a hobby and running with it.

I am just basically selling what I make. I researched Avon, Tupperware, Pampered Chef and a couple others that I can't rememberr off the top of my head and I just didn't think I would fit doing those things so I decided that I would use the craft that I love so dearly and sell the items I make. Right now I make quilts and I plan to start sell my creams and body mist. Hopefully I will have some done in time for Mother's Day to hand out but look inside and consider what you enjoy then begin your search.

I am an independent spa consultant for BeautiControl and it has been the EASIEST thing I have ever done. Along with the fact the company is offering in April a $99 start up kit (which includes a TON of stuff, I was very surprised!!!) they are a terrific company to work for!

In home spa parties are all the rage because thats what women are looking for, relaxation and tools to pamper themselves. We have everything you find in a day spa except we bring it to their home!! NOT LIK "OTHER" cosmetic companies we focus on head to toe body care and relaxation, de-stressing and rejuvination products.

I would love to talk more about it with you. Normally it is around $250-$300 to buy your start up kit but this month it is $99. You also get a fantastic motivating day of training (i know you think BORING!!! but it is not at all!!)

Please consider this opportunity, I can not rave enough about the happiness you will find with BeautiControl!! please check out my website www.beautipage.com/tkraft for more information if you want, or just reply here.

Thanks for your time!! I also forgot the most important part your commision is 50%!!!! no scams about it!!!!!!!!!

I am a new mother at the age of 37 and was looking for a great way to make extra money while staying at home with my daughter. After looking into tons of offers, iMoms was for me!

Are you interested in personal and family wellness? Did you realize that you bring poisons into your home everyday? I work with a company that offers non-toxic cleaning supplies as well as wellness products for your whole family. These products are a better quality, have safer ingredients, are more econimical and are a super value for the money. All you have to do is switch stores. And everything is delivered directly to your front door! Plus, if you are not totally satisfied with these products, you will receive a full refund. Guaranteed!

Interested in building your own business?? There are no large investments, no inventory, no repeat sales presentations, no order taking or delivery and there are no financial risks. If you later decide the busniness is not for you, then your initial investment will be refunded. Guaranteed!

Contact me today at the link below for more information, whether you are interested in building a business or just interested in ridding your home of toxins that are harmful to you and your family.
