What's better than food for connecting with others? From cooking shows in your hostess's home to Facebook parties, which are completely virtual, Pampered Chef consultants earn 20 to 25 percent commission based on sales volume. That can increase to up to 31 percent if you build a team. Startup kits begin at $109 and include what you'll need to put on a cooking show including tools such as basting brush, knives, grill pans, and all kinds of other fun kitchen wares.
Damsel in Defense is about equipping women with the tools to not only keep them safe but also to give them the confidence to know that they have a way out if they ever feel threatened. We are very excited about our affordable and adorable line of products. Whether you are at home or traveling, running or celebrating downtown with the girls, Damsel in Defense has the products and fact-based education that can and does save lives.
It's only $10 to join, and if you want to buy a kit with inventory the price goes up from there, but not by much, and consultants earn 30% of sales. What I can't tell is whether you're able to sell straight from the site or if you're required to carry inventory, and my honest opinion is that you're not going to make a huge or steady income with this company because the product lines aren't refined enough to garner a cult following like some of the other direct sales companies out there. But I've added it to this list for three reasons:
Then what? To cultivate repeat business, Kate does specialty workshops on topics like Caulking, Energy Efficiency, and Drywall Repair. She strives for four events a month, targeting high-exposure home shows when possible. ("But I won't spend more than $500 on a booth.") Each tool party is an "empowerment session," she says. "I've met women who've never even held a hammer, yet they leave feeling capable of doing basic repairs." Kate has learned a lot too. She recently installed a ceiling fan all on her own. "When I switched it on and it didn't wobble, I felt incredibly accomplished," she says.
I spent about 3 years selling Amway back in the 70’s. There was a lot of hype but I made enough money to achieve several of my more modest financial goals. I went on to use some of what I learned to make extra money in various ventures and eventually started a small business out of my home. The business grew until mainstream retailers began offering the same product I was selling at comparable prices. The MLM as a learning tool has some value as long as the product is decent. This MLM ranking is a good way to attract attention and I am curious about Your service. I am selective about what I spend my time and effort on.
You need to follow what you are passionate about. For me, that is literally about changing lives…team mate lives & customer lives. I work with 2 different companies…both for improving wellness on every level ( from doing trade shows I have learned that nearly everyone wants relief from pain,anxiety,depression,sleep deprivation)…so that is why I carefully chose the products & company comp plans that I did. One of the the companies is at the ground level in pre launch (I have dreamed about having this opportunity for a long time) It is fda approved & will be the only product of it’s kind available over the counter…basically the fountain of youth and proven results over the last 13 years studies. That goes public in August 2018 for customers to purchase, right now only us distributors have access. Let me know if you want info & private access….happy to help make decisions and see options. Also for me the comp plans need to be over the top in order to get on board. Just follow what speaks to you…you need to be a product of the product & have a genuine story…be authentic, humble, and surround your self with only positive uplifting people…your vibe attracts your tribe!
Before I made a commitment to the company, I tested the products and activity workbooks on my four year old to see if liked them. Not only did he like them...he loves them! That made my decision easier. It's not a get rich quick, you have to put in some work. But as an educator, former tutoring company owner, and a mom, I really wanted a quality product to sell with a small monetary investment. An important thing about Fundanoodle is the support from the company's owner and the other Fundanoodle ambassadors. I've have never witnessed a more kind and supportive group of ladies that want everyone to succeed.

There is nothing new about people failing; yes, they fail – at lots of things. We could spend months trying to discover why people fail in their marriages, school, jobs, etc. Do I have compassion and feel for them when they can’t make it work. Yes, of course! But I can’t jump into their bodies and make choices and live their life for them. It’s their choice – quit or find a way to keep going. MLM is a business and not everyone will succeed. Will I make money from my HARD EARNED customer base? Yes! Do I feel bad because I make a commission. No! EVERY business owner makes money off their employees – other wise they would not be in business. Do Brick and Morter Business Owners feel bad that they are making millions and they are paying their employees minimum wage??? Of Course Not. That is just the nature of business. So why are you feeling “bad” that you made money? Did you tell your recruits that they could do what you did to make money ? You see, there is a difference in selling a product to a customer and telling a person they can “get rich quick” and do nothing to get there. Those people will fail every time when they listen to such lies. hoilictictouch.com Get Oiled!


The MLM industry varies so much and is so vast, it’s kind of hard to break into any niche with a new product (because chances are it’s already been done), however this company managed to do it! With their custom nail designs and adhesive technique, the company made a big bang with their introduction to the direct sales platform.  They got over 100,000 associates in no time, and ended up conquering their market.
A benefit to becoming a consultant for Usborne books in the US is that the company is based out of the UK and their product is not available in the states except for the limited titles found in brick and mortar book stores and the small (outdated) selection on Amazon. So by being a direct-seller of this product, you have a leg up on the retail competition as you'll be offering new titles at the best possible price.

Having studied the psychology and behavior of boomers, this example represents a major shift in my thinking about the industry.  I no longer perceive these types of opportunities as money-making pyramid schemes.  Instead, I now see it as a way to enhance many of the personal aspects of retirement that are rarely discussed let alone planned for, with the added benefit of supplementing other popular retirement income sources such as pension and social security.

These brothers from Israel changed the minds of the entrepreneurs behind the company, Seacret Direct, when they managed to take the typical start up business from the kiosk (you know those booths in the mall) to the beyond and turned it into a global direct selling company worth millions of dollars.  These skincare product companies are pretty boring these days, but the company’s dead sea products originate with a 5,000-year-old history and a huge fan following.
Hi Holly, great list! I read in one of your comments that you list the companies with lower saturation in the marketplace. I did not see anyone mention NERIUMAD anywhere. If anyone has been paying attention to the DS marketplace, you should know that NERIUMAD is rocketing to the moon with its flagship product – our age-defying night cream and now in just a few days, our new moisturizing day cream will be hitting the streets! Head to http://www.2020skin.com/party to get some info about NERIUM, then feel free to contact me. I earned an iPad in my first 30 days!

Reason I joined: I have been waiting for a MLM that was all about healthy food to appear and I was very familiar with the owner of the company Peter Casleman, and all his business success. I am a Life Coach and my motto is "Helping the world be a better place one person at a time" and Yevo's motto is "Helping the world be a healthier place one meal at a time" and it resinated with me deeply.
Yes, you might want to learn the overview of it so you’re knowledgable and understand how your checks are getting formulated, but I’ve met too many successful networkers who can’t explain comp plans to spend any real time on them. When people ask questions, I refer them to the documentation that’s available and ask them if they’re ready to start a business they can work from home – even online in most cases.
If you need something just see if this company has it, because chances are they do.  They are recognized for their greatly discounted product one-stop-shop, as they are wealthy CEOs.  The CEOs have made it to the Forbes list, drive nice cars, live in mansions in Biscayne Bay, penthouses in Manhattan, and are well-known with celebrities…I could go on, but you get the picture, right?  And this is all in credit to their MLM.  They’ve hit snags in their past with the SEC, but at the end of the day they just kept going, and they’re going strong.  Market America still managed to make it onto the DSN Global 100 at the 29th position.
Hi Kierstin, this is a great list of DS companies. I researched a lot of these before signing up with Lilla Rose, whom I have been with for 18 months now. I just couldn't make myself pay a company for a website or have to sell a minimum quota each month regardless of my real job. I am a single mom with a full time job and two little ones (really little) so I wanted something that I would actually use and could sell to people with the purpose of sharing something that I genuinely think is awesome. Some months, I didn't have time to promote my product so I wanted a company where I didn't have to sell a minimum amount or have to maintain a website
I think when you made comments about a company you should have kept them neutral or not only commented part of a story. Ambit did have a lawsuit, but it also has several JD Power awards, A+BBB, and many other accolades. I don’t know details of the suit, it may have been 100% justified, but I do know lawsuits are not always justified. Sometimes people are looking to make a buck
Her first class fundraiser was in 2009. With the principal's permission, Darlene sent catalogs and letters to parents, explaining the goal: Sell what you can in two weeks (without kids going door to door, for safety's sake) and all profits will fund field trips and special events. Since she's in Avon's President's Club—a rank achieved when you sell over $10,100 in a year—the class would get at least 40% commission on sales. Her students' parents sold $1,100 worth of products, earning about $475. It enabled them to hear from a bat scientist while studying the book Stella Luna, and visit a nursing home to read to the elderly.
WHEN NANCY CRAMER WAS A young mother, she wanted to stay at home with her kids. It wasn't long, she says, before the multilevel marketing community found her and got her on board to start selling a line of vitamins and skincare products. She was intrigued by the sales pitch: She could be at home with her kids, make extra income on the side, and all she had to do was call 10 people per day.

A few noteworthy points on this list… The only companies considered for this list are U.S.A. based; and if you click on each and every company linked above, what you will not find should be as interesting to you (and as revealing) as what you will find. There are no travel companies, only two technology companies (ACN and 5LINX), just one service company (Legal Shield), and 22 health and wellness companies. Even Amway, whose core product line still includes soap, really got started by way of the wellness revolution! Read this book by Paul Zane Pilzer and you’ll understand why nutrition, weight management, and skincare products continue to drive the trends in the network marketing industry to this day.
Freelancing — This is another at-home gig I love to recommend. Freelancers provide some sort of service, and often they’ll do it online. Freelance jobs include things like web design, bookkeeping, social media management, and being a virtual assistant. Even if you don’t think you have marketable skills, all it takes is a conversation with someone about what you know how to do, and you’ve got the potential for a freelance business. Plus, you can always deep-dive into something that interests you (Facebook ads, landing page design, marketing on Pinterest, podcast production, and more) and specialize in that area. You can even freelance as a customer service representative for other online entrepreneurs!

AMWAY – Amway is a pioneer in the MLM industry. It was created way back in 1959 and now considered one of the top 10 MLM companies in the world. The company had a reported earning of at least 8 billion dollars with a network of members that is growing on a daily basis. Amway is considered the second biggest MLM company in the world when compared the revenue generated. The company runs its own production facility in the U.S. with many products in home care, personal care and nutritional supplements.

Shaklee – Established in 1956, Shaklee is an MLM company that mainly focuses on home care items and over 200 nutritional and skin care products. The company makes over $844 million in revenue every year and invests about $250 million into research for the development of eco-friendly products. The company has created over 2,000 millionaires over the years.

Usana is a great business for men. My husband has been doing it for less than a year and doing well. It’s a health and wellness company with the highest rated vitamins, protein shakes, and supplements. Most vitamins that you purchase in store have a rating of under 2 stars. Usana has a rating of 5 stars out of 5. Check out thisishowwedoit.usana.com or email thisishowwedoitusana@gmail.com Usana has also helped my hubby lose 50 lbs and keep it off!
TrūAura Beauty is an incredible direct sales company that just started in February so the opportunity is HUGE! TrūAura offers skincare and cosmetics that are clean, natural and filled with pre and probiotics that naturally balance out your skins microbiome. No matter your skin type, TrūAuras products work with your skins custom PH levels to give you a soft, firm, glowing complexion.

Usborne Books is an America-based direct sales company established in 1989 and is an extension of Usborne Educational Development/Publishing Corporation founded in 1973 by Peter Usborne. Usborne Books has been recognized a couple of times as one of the best small companies in America. Its mission is to provide economic opportunity while nurturing family values and to deliver educational excellence. The company generates about $9.6 million in revenues every year.
And we are one of only four companies to hit the $1billion dollar mark before the end of the fourth year. And it practically sells itself. Whereas other companies require multiple products to see results, our NeriumAD (the most popular product we sell) is a one product system. You can check out my webpage at http://www.kristychurch.nerium.com or on Facebook in the group Nerium With Kristy.

I've been with Young Living for 2.5 years and thankfully have not experienced anything like what Beth posted above. My team is incredibly supportive and willing to share and help. You technically do not ever have to make a purchase after your initial purchase. However, to remain an active member to receive the wholesale discount, you need to make a $50 purchase within a year of your initial order. Of course there's more to it than ordering $50/year if you want to build a business, but there aren't any secrets or hidden fees.


There are no monthly quotas to remain active as a Compassionate Entrepreneur. You just need to have an order placed through your website (in any amount) once every six months to continue to stay active. There is also a $13.95 a month fee for running our personalized website and marketing portal (which collects customer/hostess data and sends out automatic emails 3x a month), but the first month is free.
Trades of Hope- (this is my friend Shelby’s link) Trades of Hope is an amazing company committed to empowering women around the world out of poverty. Their fair trade model helps them support artisans all over the world by helping them earn a living wage. Here’s what Shelby loves about the company- “It’s such an honor to advocate on behalf of & empower women from around the globe to RISE UP out of poverty & human trafficking by selling their beautiful, handmade, fair trade goods & promote sustainability — for both Artisans & TOH Compassionate Entrepreneurs.”
You definitely forgot Thrive by Le-Vel. Premium nutritional supplement line. Weekly commission, no promoter fees, free cloud office, training at your fingertips, free customer accounts, great demand for health right now more than ever. I have never felt better in all my years as a mom. I decided to promote because of the product and how it made me feel. Though all teams within the company may not be as great as my team, it is a wonderful company! My team...we are like family. Always there for each other. I love promoting Thrive!
The product is the revolutionary and the REAL DEAL! It is going viral with a jump from 1,500 to 12,000 reps in 3 months with organic growth. I built the best system in the biz and it’s free for my entire team. No upsells or nonsense, just a cutting edge (custom built) team site to help my team crush this. Easier to let you look, just follow the link. Cheers, Ray

An analysis of 32 income disclosure statements from direct selling companies by TruthInAdvertising.org found that 80 percent of distributors, or people selling their products, grossed less than $1,200 per year before expenses. At about half of those companies, the majority of distributors made no money at all. "Given that context, any income claim that expressly states or implies that this is a way for someone to gain financial freedom, to become wealthy, travel the world, become a stay-at-home parent is just false and deceptive," says Bonnie Patten, executive director for TruthInAdvertising.org.


They’re sliding, though. Revenue is falling in North America and their sales force is shrinking. Revenue slid 19% in 2013 and 7% in Mexico. Skip ahead to July 2015 and revenue is still spiraling downward, with a 17% drop (5). Analysts blame Avon’s failure to maintain a strong identity for its products as well as the strong dollar. Lesson: Always re-create yourself.
Tastefully Simple is a food product business for easy cooking. Every food product in here requires 3 or less ingredients! And most of the time it’s things you already have in your cabinets/ ice boxes. What I like most about tastefully simple is its SIMPLE. I don’t cook and I promise you that! Tastefully Simple is the easiest and yummiest way to get dinner on the table. We have Drink buckets for the summertime parties – Just add Vodka or Tequila. You can also just make them into kid’s drinks, the alcohol is not added ‘til you add it! We also have our famous Beer Bread that you don’t have to necessarily use “beer” you can use soda pop also! We have soups, spices, and delicious desserts for you, your family, or guests at a party! http://www.tastefullysimple.com/web/tlapoint for more info!!!

With so many of the fastest growing MLM companies pushing to have you join, it can get confusing when you’re looking at MLM products, compensation plans, where to get leads, marketing tips, and most of all – can I really make money with this? What you need to remember, is that the best MLM to join in your situation is going to come down to one thing – finding a product and a business you are excited about sharing!
I am currently a pharmacy student with a CRAZY schedule. I recently decided to try out Advocare products and I got AMAZING results! I wanted something to give me energy that didn’t include sodas or coffee so I found Spark! It has completely replaced all other caffeinated products in my house. I no longer experience the crash after too much caffeine and I don’t feel jittery like I would with coffee! When I realized how great Spark was I decided to try out the 24 day challenge and I lost 7 pounds and inches off my waist. I feel so much better and I am finally enjoying a clean, healthy lifestyle!
I’d like to point out a few things: statistically something like 96% of businesses fail within the first 5-10 years, which is a much more impactful loss, both financially and time wise, than the few hundred dollars one puts into whatever product they’re using in MLM. So realistically the success rate as a “self employed business owner” with MLM is probably a bit better than it is with launching a traditional business, or at least consistent with it. It takes discipline and tenacity that many people don’t have- that’s why they chose to remain employees in the first place.
This company isn't cheap to join: the least expensive kit costs a whopping $499 and goes up to $1000.00 from there. Each starter kit contains everything you need to start your business plus products to familiarize yourself with the line and share with friends and family as you build up your clientele. The compensation plan isn't too simple either and you'll want to fully look it over before committing to the company, but if you're ready to hustle your butt and put your all into marketing Nerium's superior products then there's great potential to earn a steady and comfortable income.

The great thing about this day and age is that there are so many opportunities to be a direct sales person even if you are in introvert or can’t get out of the house. Facebook parties are huge, social media is a great way to spread awareness, you can even start a blog about your products and experience with them! While in home parties are always fun, and usually have great sales, they are no longer the only way to approach direct sales!

This company was living life in the lime light, and they were trending for a good while there. They deflated out a bit, however they are still pretty big.  There are over 50 countries currently promoting their immunity-boosting nutritional products, and the rave reviews from the former and current associates makes things seem pretty superb.  Although it’s mentioned that the commissions aren’t great, but maybe that’s okay as long as their reps have continued happiness? 

Forever Living – Forever Living is based in Arizona in the USA. The company mainly deals with weight loss, personal care, skincare and nutritional supplements. The company is mainly focusing on the North American market where its major share of clients are based in. Forever Living was able to generate more than $1.7 billion on an annual basis recently. This is one of the best multi level marketing companies in the world currently.

This was the most useless, uninformative, article I have wasted my time with. I'm scratching my head right now, as I thought I was clicking on an article that someone actually did research of "the top 20 best direct sales company's", not : "um, I know nothing about direct sales, nor did any research but I will name 20 companies, I may or may not know anything about".... numbering them, then writing paragraphs of blah, blah, did not even bother googling company for facts, but you could, as I'm not that smart. I really hope you don't get paid for crap like this and if you do .... please share that secret. I would love to write articles (I would even do legit research and be knowledgeable) and get paid doing so. ** 100% serious if you are making $$ off this article please share your secret, as this is a very disappointing, misleading article full of paragraphs of crap nonsense from you. I initially clicked as I was an independent consultant for Partylite (surprised not mentioned however knock off cheap quality scentsy was) and looking if PL was still the best option to make $ PT and possibly get information on 20 companies that "are the best" with info like start up costs, commission %, pyramid formed companies vs non, web site maintenance costs, consumer interest, background info more specific than they have been around since the 1800s?!? SMH... what a waste of time to read this. If I Google PL it gives me that info and you misled me to think you did the research for me. So please let me know how I can make $ after I do it by writing a better article then this. Good luck!
Hi Jeremy great article. Here’s my take for what it is worth,after working 50 years for the bank making not so much money,having to accommodate there time schedule ,negotiated vacations and seeing very few people advance to 6 figure incomes,I’m somewhat intrigued by the idea of using my retirement years looking at mlm as a part time endeavour . Obviously I put a lot of blood sweat and tears into my previous job,so I’m not expecting to make my millions in a couple years in mlm, but I like the (do it in your own time) idea. If I find a product I like and would use anyway why not? I also like the idea that the potential is there biased on your own efforts. Am I wrong What do you think?
I can't get a super clear idea of how much it costs to sell for the company but it appears that packages start around $100 and can go up to $400 (UPDATE 3/2017 - It Works! representative Angela commented below suggesting that the startup costs are $99, not $100, however I still can't find a definite price on startup costs on the official It Works website and have since seen on other blogs that the costs can actually go up to more like $499. If someone can find a link from the official It Works website I'd love if you could post it below for clarification!)
My name is Erin Pyka and I joined this new company all because I received a sample of the product and loved it! I am married to my amazing husband and we have two busy daughters who love being involved in dance and cheer. I also help take care of my grandparents and was a labor and delivery nurse working 12 hour shifts, so the idea of doing a “side gig” didn't sound appealing.

If the official site of the MLM program you want to join does not have any of these features, you will probably have a hard time with making sales, especially if you have limited experience with selling products. A program that provides you with resources designed to help you become a better seller wants you to succeed and will help you generate more revenues.
Good companies find ways to intelligently leverage technology. Thanks to Amazon and Wal-Mart, we’re all spoiled. We want what we want, we want it NOW and we want it delivered for free. Smart network marketing companies are eliminating as many barriers as possible to make it easier for consumers to place and receive orders. They’re finding ways to make it easier for consumers to connect via mobile apps, tell stories via social media tools, provide best-in-class web experiences and leverage as much data as possible to stay ahead of consumer demand. The corporate team also needs to leverage technology to enhance workflows.
Great post! :-) I am with Javita weightloss coffee and have been a customer since oct 2013 and on Dec 28th signed up to be an independent rep- we are an MLM company as well but like the person earlier mentioned it's legit since anyone can surpass their up line you get out of it what you put into it- we also earn residual income once you are at a certain level. My favorite product of the three is the burn & control- as a working mom with a 13 month old it helped me lose those last pregnancy pounds and has garçinia cambogia in it - which appeared on Dr OZ as the best kept secret in Hollywood for weight loss it's an appetite suppressant and increases metabolism also a fat blocker so not suggested for breast feeding/pregnant moms :( just came out with the Green Tea version as well - I am looking for motivated women with the desire to help others in their healthy lifestyle journey to join my team - myjavita.com/jenniferaz would love to share more info with you!

I have joined a groundfloor direct sales company that is experiencing extreme hypergrowth: LimeLight by Alcone. Alcone has been in the professional makeup industry for over 60 years and has recently branched to include direct sales with LimeLight. Feel free to browse my page or reply with questions: Limelightbyalcone.com/stephs Our team is booming and would love to add you to our opportunity!
mlw831 thanks for sharing that insight! I'm actually sort of shocked that the Avon model is so...ancient? In my experience buying from direct sales companies, most makeup companies send the product directly to the customer and the representative simply does just that - represent, without holding any kind of inventory or having to do any travel other than parties they can plan in their own time (and they're not even necessary). Good info for anyone considering Avon who may not have the time or energy to hand deliver each order.
Backstory: In 1999 Ginny left her full-time job in hospice management when the family moved from Arizona to Kansas so that Doug could take a new job. Bored one afternoon, she browsed through a Silpada catalog that belonged to her sister-in-law. "Halfway through, I already had a $350 wish list," she says. So Ginny decided to become a rep to earn some free bling and hopefully make friends. She took $1,000 from savings to purchase display jewelry, conservatively calculating that she'd need 12 parties to replenish the account. Her first party yielded $1,500 in sales, $450 each in commission and free jewelry, and six more bookings. Doug said, "Something tells me we've got a good thing going here."

It's a typical workday in the Fiscella home: Ginny, leader of Silpada jewelry company's top sales force, makes phone calls in her home office, while husband Doug handles her administrative tasks from his laptop in the kitchen. The arrangement gives him time with daughters Caroline and Molly and frees Ginny to focus on what she does best—selling, recruiting, and motivating her team.
They also offer a $100, $500, $1000, $3500 products which they offer 100% commissions on.  The great thing about Empower Network is their products are training products.  You can buy their products to build ANY network marketing company out there.  Without Empower Network, I wouldn’t be making the money I am today with the knowledge and skill set to succeed online as well.

I just started selling for one of the top 15 and I went in knowing that this was just supplemental cash and nothing that would support my family. I spend 15 minutes (mostly from my phone) a day on my business and am happy with what I’ve done thus far. If it covers groceries and some extras like clothes or shoes, I’m good. If I start to become even more successful, great. It’s my competitive nature to want to out rank others, so I find it to be more of a personal challenge than thinking I’m going to get rich and stay rich. I appreciate the article and the no BS attitude.
This is such a cool website! I love interior decorating and clothes. Have you heard of shop Stevie? I just tried to get info on becoming a sales rep for them, but they don’t have the option right now in my area. I’m also a part time school teacher, just looking to make some extra money on the side while I’m at home with my kids. I would love to hear your suggestions. Thanks!

This was the most useless, uninformative, article I have wasted my time with. I'm scratching my head right now, as I thought I was clicking on an article that someone actually did research of "the top 20 best direct sales company's", not : "um, I know nothing about direct sales, nor did any research but I will name 20 companies, I may or may not know anything about".... numbering them, then writing paragraphs of blah, blah, did not even bother googling company for facts, but you could, as I'm not that smart. I really hope you don't get paid for crap like this and if you do .... please share that secret. I would love to write articles (I would even do legit research and be knowledgeable) and get paid doing so. ** 100% serious if you are making $$ off this article please share your secret, as this is a very disappointing, misleading article full of paragraphs of crap nonsense from you. I initially clicked as I was an independent consultant for Partylite (surprised not mentioned however knock off cheap quality scentsy was) and looking if PL was still the best option to make $ PT and possibly get information on 20 companies that "are the best" with info like start up costs, commission %, pyramid formed companies vs non, web site maintenance costs, consumer interest, background info more specific than they have been around since the 1800s?!? SMH... what a waste of time to read this. If I Google PL it gives me that info and you misled me to think you did the research for me. So please let me know how I can make $ after I do it by writing a better article then this. Good luck!
I totally agree, Mary. You can lose soooo much more just by opening up a small storefront business. I was in the Spa Industry and then the economy tanked in late 2008. I did not renew my lease in 2009. Lost my several hundred thousand dollar build-out. Lost so much more than taking an MLM business seriously. Even if I would have front loaded on a ton of product, I still would have been better off. People spend $750 and get some business cards then do nothing and blame MLM.
Hi Kierstin, this is a great list of DS companies. I researched a lot of these before signing up with Lilla Rose, whom I have been with for 18 months now. I just couldn't make myself pay a company for a website or have to sell a minimum quota each month regardless of my real job. I am a single mom with a full time job and two little ones (really little) so I wanted something that I would actually use and could sell to people with the purpose of sharing something that I genuinely think is awesome. Some months, I didn't have time to promote my product so I wanted a company where I didn't have to sell a minimum amount or have to maintain a website
