Most people find them extremely easy to apply. With that said, after one or two applications, the process becomes much easier and faster. They last up to 2 weeks on fingers and 6 weeks on toes. The key to getting a great application is proper nail prep. Please consult with your consultant if you are having problems or need help with your application. We can't help if we don't know. ♡ 

This company also offers, among the majority on this list, one of the greatest opportunities for big money. Glassdoor reviewers give it high marks and those I know who sell the product really seem to enjoy doing so. But success with Rodan and Fields absolutely hinges on your ability to invest time, enthusiasm, and of course, money into the product. Social networking is a must. As I've said with a few of the other companies on this list, I also personally see a locale aspect to success in selling this product. I live in a place where most people earn a low-medium income and I know this stuff would be a hard sell--not because it doesn't work, but because most people around here wouldn't be able or willing to spend that much money on skin care. If you're in a predominantly wealthy area and network with people who really care about appearance and skin care (say, in a big city) though, this is a company worth looking into.
Sseko Designs is an amazing ethical Direct Sales company that helps provide dignified jobs and educational opportunity for women in Uganda. Women in the U.S. can sell Sseko Product for competitive commission while they contribute to real social impact! Would love to see Sseko added to the list, the products (sandals, jewelry, apparel, leather bags..) are STUNNING!

Hi Jeimy. Fuxion is an excellent company. Fuxion is a Peruvian company that is spread in 12 countries, including the US. Randy Gage has decided to join Fuxion as a networker 2 weeks ago! Robert Kiyosaki and John Maxwell are current Fuxion’s advisors. Fuxion’s nutraceutical products are made of fruits and vegetables from the Amazon region, Andean region, Central America and Asia. The company is in its best moment. So I recommend you to join us!
I’ve also learned to lead in Mary Kay and become much more empowered as a woman. I’ve got a business I can do from anywhere, and one I’m proud to share with my friends and family. I’ve learned to help other women start their own businesses and share tools and tricks that have helped me have success. My unit grows as a team and works toward becoming a successful group of Mary Kay consultants. The Mary Kay products are known and loved by many so it’s fun to share all the new beauty and skincare lines as well as the cherished standbys that customers love.

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 do make money writing these articles and you're welcome to join HubPages and give it a shot too! Unlike direct sales, I won't make any money for referring you and I won't try to sell you anything but I think you would do really well here because you seem to like writing and researching. You can join for free and then if at any point you want some guidance you can ask the community for help. We all work together here! It's an awesome platform and even if a reader is unhappy with your work you still get paid so it's a solid situation.
From my research of DCD, it seems that this is a company and product that would best suit a mom with older kids who can stay behind for chocolate-tasting parties since it seems pretty hard to sell the product through social-networking alone or in your own limited social-circles. I think that some of the products would sell well in an office setting too--say as holiday gifts from the boss at a large company.
I am very surprised not to see Younique on here for beauty products. They have their number one seller the 3D fiber lash mascara which is SO awesome!! I love it so much and their products are all natural. And all of the ladies are so sweet. I am so glad that I joined this company when I did. If you are interest in know more please go to my website youniqueproducts.com/kayladoffin
We all know that direct selling is a people business. Measuring field engagement is critical to any company’s success, and consistently delivering on that is a hallmark of the channel. But the field is only part of the people equation. Best Places to Work in Direct Selling celebrates the important role companies play as employers in the marketplace and highlights those companies that are setting the bar for establishing and nurturing work experiences and environments that bring out the very best in people.
Just a quick comment about the Rodan and Fields info...the initial sign up fee is $45. The other "options" are business kits, for people who want to purchase products. The monthly $25 for the website is optional as well. And the $80 is for products that consultants use personally, also an OPTION. We NEVER CARRY INVENTORY! All sales ship direct to the customer from corporate. So, minimum is $45...the rest is all optional! Nmaio.myrandf.biz

2. The compensation plan is the best I’ve seen and it’s made vary easily for members (especially the new ones) to see results short and long term. And it’s actually very easy to post photos from your travelings and ask people out when they constantly ask “how are you traveling so much!?” The system is binary which means that people signed up from people above you come in your team as well. That reduces compensation and rivalries between us and we work together as one.
The company. Too many people get lured by the hype, without stopping to consider the company or its product/service. What does the company sell and can you get excited about it? What are the compensation plan, marketing system, and policies, and can you work with it? Is it a member of the DSA, and through your research, been found to be a legitimate company?
Paparazzi Accessories is an affordable jewelry company. Our $5 jewelry is beautiful and at a price made to sell. You make an instant 45% commission per each piece you sell. You can start with only $99. The smallest kit includes 35 pieces of jewelry to sell to recoup the cost of the kit and to make additional profits. As soon as you start you’re given a free website where friends and family can buy before you even receive your kit. You get to pick the pieces you want in your inventory and can buy as little or as much as you would like. To be considered active for the month you only need to buy 25 pieces of jewelry.
I’m with LifeVantage and TeaLife. Both great companies to work with. LV we have 6 ways of being paid..commissions plus residual income on something no one else has. Big pharmacy is trying to synthetically create what we have in drug form that will have side effects. But we are natural. TeaLife is organic loose teas that are so yummy! 30% commissions on teas and 20% tea accessories. I order from both these companies as well because I believe in them 100%. If anyone has any questions please email me: dawnmahaney1@outlook.com

I have been looking over your sites and viewing the many videos. It sounds appealing however there are many many . . . many lead generators out there, some that are well established (and very good at what they do) and so my question is why would I pay you to train me for 5 weeks and think I could compete (let alone generate income) in the short period you mention?

Hello. Excellent list! I didn’t see BeautiControl or Thrive by Le-Vel listed.. BeautiControl is a skincare company that’s been around for 33 years, with a great skincare line, bath and body, and make up.. Thrive by Le-Vel is a nutritional supplement company that has a super simple system without the restrictions and requirements you typically see in a nutritional system.. http://Www.Dani_marie2003.Le-Vel.com


Then what? After training, teens consult with their mentors for a year, corresponding twice a month. "It's not just about business," says Nakia. "They cultivate life skills like goalsetting, decision-making and money management." The objectives mesh perfectly with the company's mission to empower women of color, and Soul Purpose is rolling out the ESPY mentoring program nationwide. "This prepares teens for the future," Nakia says. "I was a teen mom who struggled at times to make ends meet. I believe in teaching kids how to become financially independent."
Perfectly Posh is a direct sales company with a focus on pampering products. Products are paraben and paraffin-free, sulfate-free, as well as gluten, lanolin and soy-free.

Hello. I have enjoyed reading about all these companies. My question is I went to serveral purse parties. Name brand purses. It was a party no around wanted to miss. But I think the lady passed away, I know she had cancer. But hope shes fine. But I want to do this if you can find out anything. I have tried but I'm not the greatest on a computer. Thank You, Vickie vsfrayser@yahoo.com
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.
And did you see that? Team members? I'm about to promote to Director in the next month - just six months after starting. And again, not because I've been badgering people to join, just because I'm connecting with people who love the products and, for whatever reasons, want to become a consultant. I have one team member who has a $150/month deficit in her current budget, but she is a single mom and need something she can do on her own timing. Another wants to learn to cook better and loves the products. Another lady just retired and needs some extra income and wants to get out and meet people still. I'm super grateful for the team I signed up with as well. They've been great to work with, super helpful, and don't pressure me to do anything other than reach my own goals.
You are right in that most MLM have monthly dues and have high entry fees to be distributors or consultants. You are also right in that most MLM companies focus on recruitment and not product sales. I’ve been working with Arbonne now for quite a while and none of those comments apply to this company, which is why I believe they have survived and are only growing at this point, despite some people’s opinion that they will soon be relics like Mary Kay. To become a consultant is a mere $75 dollars, the kit is involved with all free samples and material. Product loading is prohibited. Each event we host regularly ends with most if not all attendees becoming a preferred client for $20 joining fee for the first year and a $15 renewal every year with no monthly expectation and a guaranteed minimum of 20% off of all stock at all times and 40% off of all packages at all times. Not only that consultants can will their business down 6 generations, and the Mercedes incentive is for a purchase, not a lease. We do look to grow our network, but we emphasize this takes hard work and is not a get rich quick scheme. While you hit the nail on the head with most MLM businesses, there are MLM businesses like Arbonne who are a cut above the rest and who are in the habit of not putting pressure on anyone attending to either purchase or join as a consultant. We only want the best in our network and we have thousands of examples of very successful men and woman to show for it. Great article!!!
Wow Collette! I’m a new Advocate with doTERRA, as is my wife. She wanted to start using oils to get our family off of medications as much as possible (and now we mostly are!) We chose doTERRA over all the other oils companies because of the process in which they farm and make their oils as well as the great culture they seem to exude. We just felt called to them.
They were hot. These guys caught some shade for over-inflating their health products, but what health MLM doesn’t inflate their prices “a tiny bit” so they can dish out those juicy commissions? Well, their fiber product was 900% more than “leading alternatives” and their Trioten protein blend was 600% more expensive than Herbalife and Shaklee proteins. Ouch.
NuSkin is another America-based multi-level marketing company based in Provo, UT, founded in 1984. It sells dietary supplements and personal care products. The company employs close to 1 million independent distributors and has over 50 international markets. However, the company was in trouble a few backs after it overstated earned incomes. Despite lots of scrutinies, the company still remains reputable.

They have a slew of stay-at-home associates mixed in with some ready to excel entrepreneurs on their team.  Meaning?  They have the products that everyone needs and wants, as well as those entrepreneurs to sell it!  Anyone who is a follower of the MLM world knows you have to have a practical product, so people buying it know what they are going to use it for and how to use it. doTERRA has found the fine balance needed to succeed.
MLM restructures the traditional business model — manufacturer to retail shop to customer — such that sales agents working for the manufacturer sell directly to customers, bypassing the retail shop altogether. MLM companies can then convert customers into advocates for their products and possibly even sales agents. Because there is no retail store for the products they sell, MLM agents typically work from their homes, interacting with customers in the community or, more often, over the internet.
First, Elliot, thank you for this article. Your sense of truly wanting to help comes through and it’s refreshing. Like MommyFinance, I too have suffered PTSD from previous runs at MLM but I have been looking for legitimate ways of making extra income and seems I’m being directed toward trying MLM again. Your article gave me hope that there are some good ones out there. What you said about finding the one that fits me and leaving a legacy for family really turned on a light for me and I greatly appreciate that. A wine business is not quite up my alley but I will certainly direct those who might be interested your way.

These things require capital. I would say that the BIGGEST mistake startup entrepreneurs make when they start a network marketing company is the failure to appreciate the amount of capital required. They do the simple math, add up a few known expenses, and assume the company will be profitable within the first few months. Capital allows the founders to be patient and focus on longer term goals, which leads to healthier companies. Desperation for money has led countless entrepreneurs to make catastrophic mistakes. And be wary of companies listed on exchanges as penny stocks — I’ve seen very few network marketing companies navigate those waters successfully without defrauding investors.
Diets…fad diets, new diets, old diets…it’s an endless story especially in the 2000’s, and this company is one of those companies.  The FDA had a run-in with these guys and they are not in the greatest standings with the BBB either, which seem to be the norm with weight loss pills of the “magical results” variety.   Well the good news for this business is that they’ve managed to keep trending for 5 years (that’s a pretty good streak), and the company reps are earning a colossal 50% in commissions.
In the earlier 2000’s everyone in the network marketing industry new about ACN.  Accelerate time and land in 2017, the telecommunication strategy company has seen better days and has continued to decline over the last 5 years.  However, with $800+ million in yearly revenue still coming in, it’s not bad at all.  You can still call them a “has been” company and they have ultimately met their demise by a failing to update themselves.

Lorene Hochstetler, from Ohio, recommends keeping your current job while slowly making the transition into MLM.  She’s been able to replace her full-time income but explains, “It didn’t happen overnight, and I still work every day.  I am very disciplined with my business and wake up every day knowing what I have to do in order to succeed at this.  You have to treat it like a business and be willing to follow advice from others who have made it.”


I just wanted to give a shout out to my awesome direct sales company, Premier Designs!! We are a Christian based jewelry company selling high fashion jewelry at an affordable price. We make 50% commission off of every sale, and get paid immediately. We make 10% commission off of our 1st, 2nd and 3rd level downlines. Premier is an amazing company with the best customer service ever. The start up cost is a little higher than some of the other companies listed here, but you make it back within the first few shows. And we offer some of the most generous hostess benefits as well.


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!

Awesome benefits to Distributrs like monthly gifts, travel and vacation incentives. I am bold to say that Swissgarde is the best MLM business in Nigeria. A lot of pyramid schemes come into this country and promise get rich quick compensation plans. No wonder they fizzle out in a short period of time after swindling people of their hard-earned money. Swissgarde has been here for over 16 years, with effective herbal products for health and beauty. The monthly pay out is so transparent that you can easily calculate your take home even before it arrives. Distributors get lots of incentives even while making money for themselves. It's an awesome opportunity for anyone who loves network marketing. You can contact me for more information.
We’ve recently started a crazy cool “give and get” rewards program to help new Compassionate Entrepreneurs get off to a strong start, creating a business that is sustainable for our artisan partners and income generating for their own family. If you bring in $1000 in sales in the first full month (which is about 2 home parties), you’re given a $100 coupon to build your kit and you also gift 12 baby chicks to a family in Africa. Hit your $1000 in the 2nd month and you earn another $100 coupon and feed a child in a Haitian orphanage for a month, and so on…. When it’s all said and done you have the opportunity to earn $1800 in ToH coupons in your first 4 months, and could even send a girl to school for a year in Haiti. I was able to hit all of these goals, and now I’ll be meeting the girl that I am sponsoring through my business as I travel with Trades of Hope to  Haiti this coming October. This entire program speaks volumes about the heart of our founders and company, and is just an incredible opportunity.
Their product lines also include girls and toddler/baby sizes. But here's the bad news: consultants only earn a 25% commission so if you sell around three pairs of leggings in an order you're only earning about $13. If you can hustle your products and remember that that's all of the work you really have to do unless you decide to also host trunk shows, then the potential to earn a steady side-income is there.
A big hello to everyone! I just launched a home based biz last month that had tremendous success my first month!! It was founded in 2005, but is mostly based on the east coast and just now moving west. When I came upon the website I was mesmerized that women could custom design their own handbags. To think that they could walk away from a party with a custom item to their taste and be proud of it was really appealing to me. In addition, all the handbags are made in the USA one purse at a time so it supports our economy. In my first month I was #3 in personal sales in the company and two women joined me. I believe that’s a true testimony to this ground floor opportunity and that women love customizing handbags. Please visit my website madisonhandbags.net/janagates/ I would love to answer any questions for you and help you in being the first to launch your market area as well. : )
After months of research, I finally decided on Fundanoodle and became a Fundanoodle ambassador. Fundanoodle is an education readiness program (selling activity books and games) geared towards 3 - 7 years olds to develop motor skills and prepare them for success in school. The products were designed by pediatric occupational therapists and elementary school teachers. This product is a hit with the homeschool crowd, and many parents with children with special needs especially ASD have found these products to be very useful. However, Fundanoodle products are designed for all little learners!
Hello everyone! I’m an affiliate with a fairly new company called Sparckily Apparel. We sell leggings, Canadian made clothing, tops and other accessories! This company is based out of St. John’s, Nl! They have very low startup cost which is what attracted me to join them! Leggings are becoming very popular everywhere! My website is http://www.sparckily.ca/#cozylegsboutique
If you remember those ads for P90X and Insanity, you are not alone because they were something to rave about at one point in time.  They have dropped off a tad, but nonetheless Beachbody is still a well-known name.  The company is so focused on their products, very few people know that they are a network marketing company.  Which can be seen as an advantage for the company’s survival, but they are questionable as a “hot offer” to advertise.
Hi JP, Your assessment of Melaleuca stating… “When you hit over a billy in annual sales, that’s reason enough to be on the shortlist. On top of that, they’ve been in the MLM game for over two decades, and they’re now the “largest online wellness shopping club” (basically just sounds like a fancy way of saying they sell a lot of miracle diet pills).” is VERY misleading and inaccurate. They offer “far more” products and services than weight control supplements. I have been a “customer” only of Melaleuca for over 20 years and can attest to the superb quality of their products. Please get your facts correct before posting inaccurate information. 🙂
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. 

The interviews and psychological connections lead me to conclude that MLM and NM companies, along with other small businesses opportunities, are important considerations for anyone entering retirement.  In fact, I believe the concept of starting a business for retirement income will become one of the most significant trends impacting retirement in the 21st century.  But it has to start with redefining entrepreneurship and framing it into a retirement lifestyle.  That means helping people find ways to turn a passion, hobby, or personal desire into extra money in their pocket… not to mention helping people see the importance of  planning for the non-financial aspects of retirement such as replacing a work identity, staying relevant and connected, as well as keeping mentally and physically fit.
Hmmm, what should I say about this company, well it still seems like they are far from “the finest and most-respectable retail energy provider in America,” I feel this way because it was just a few years ago that they were dealing with a class action lawsuit.  But when you have $1.5 billion in revenue in the bank from your global business, a lawsuit doesn’t really seem to break your stride.
I’m with LifeVantage and TeaLife. Both great companies to work with. LV we have 6 ways of being paid..commissions plus residual income on something no one else has. Big pharmacy is trying to synthetically create what we have in drug form that will have side effects. But we are natural.

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.
So many great ideas!! I didn’t see Pampered Chef or Lia Sophia though. I don’t see either of those, but know people who do. I am a Team Beachbody Independent Coach – I love it. What better way to get into great health and stay that way – healthy and sustainable! The best part is all the people that you get to meet and getting excited for them when they can do things that they couldn’t do before. Personally, I have Multiple Sclerosis and through the Shakeology and workout programs, I have lost 25 pounds and gained the nourishment that my body needed for energy to get me through the day. MS fatigue is horrid, but Shakeology fights it more than my script for fatigue does. Amazing how I feel. I’d love to help others find their personal best – if any one wants to have one on one support! It’s free for support. :) Just join as a member (there is a free option) http://www.lisalesliefitness.com. Or check out my blog – http://www.lisalesliefitnessblog.com Again, thanks for the post!

If not, listen up. Wildtree offers a product that others will actually buy without much hesitation. Unlike earrings and body-wraps, you don't need to convince potential consumers that they need food. They do. And though the blends offered through Wildtree can look expensive, in reality it would take far more to create those blends at home. You're also opened up to a greater consumer-base than some companies can reach since men and women of all ages and all walks of life eat and therefore, cook.

As with any business venture, it’s important to manage your expectations when signing on with an MLM. Marketing materials may sell you the idea of making good money without leaving your house, but business ventures like these take time to deliver a return on investment. Not every sales agent will be making $100,000 per year right away or even five years down the line. Be realistic about how much you’re likely to sell and how much you’re likely to earn.
Great post! I have started with a new company called Sexydivalingerieparties.com. I love it so far. The people are very helpful and they have great incentives. Not only is a ground floor opportunity but we have so many great products from Lingerie, Plus sized lingerie, Adult games and toys. Please feel free to check it out or if you want more info can contact me! Thanks!
Okay, we have a return to network marketing roots (can you remember the days of Tupperware parties…no? Well I’m not sorry to tell you there’s a reason for that).  Products for your kitchen, cooking demos, and an abundance of mommy bloggers.  Well homemakers are still the key demographic for this MLM, because they are looking for flexibility.  It’s not surprising to anyone that this company has done so well, but what is notable is that even Warren Buffet saw this company and decided he wanted a piece of the pie.
I'm sorry to hear that you're disappointed in this post, however the idea behind this article was actually to come from the perspective of a stay-at-home mom so it is indeed an opinion and not necessarily a "fact based" article. You're right, from what I can find currently, the startup price to join It Works! is $99, not $100. I will update that in my article. I found that information on an unofficial It Works! blog called WrapItLoseIt.net where I read that the best starter package retails for $499. When I checked out the official It Works! website I was unable to locate any information directly from the company that indicates the actual startup costs of joining the company which I find frustrating as I'm sure others do as well. Would you mind posting a link to that here so others can find quick and clear information on It Works! without having to dig?
Hi Everyone! My name is Donna and I am in Kentucky. I am so excited about sharing my new business and how great it is. I am a Founding Consultant for a wonderful new ground floor direct selling company that is currently wide open in the US. The company has been in prelaunch for over a year and during that time has had great success testing their products in several locations in the US. The company was able to create a wonderful new training program and website that makes it so simple to provide training to you and your downline and serve your customers. If the idea of being in business, being the first in your area, and selling upscale products that are guaranteed to be the best in quality and workmanship sounds like something you might like to do. Then, we should talk. I always ask my customers one simple question, “Where can you find the perfect gift for every occasion, have it personalized at no extra charge, gift wrapped and delivered for you and you never have to leave your home to do it?”
He contrasts these statistics with the failure rates for traditional small businesses, using the Small Business Administration’s statistics for 2008 that found that 44% of small businesses survive at least four years and 31% at least seven years, and 39% of businesses are profitable over the life of the small business. Only 64% of small businesses fail in 10 years.
The interviews and psychological connections lead me to conclude that MLM and NM companies, along with other small businesses opportunities, are important considerations for anyone entering retirement.  In fact, I believe the concept of starting a business for retirement income will become one of the most significant trends impacting retirement in the 21st century.  But it has to start with redefining entrepreneurship and framing it into a retirement lifestyle.  That means helping people find ways to turn a passion, hobby, or personal desire into extra money in their pocket… not to mention helping people see the importance of  planning for the non-financial aspects of retirement such as replacing a work identity, staying relevant and connected, as well as keeping mentally and physically fit.
The direct sales business is a hot industry right now as more and more men and women find solace in self-employment. And with amazingly trendy direct sales companies sprouting up throughout the nation, being a direct sales consultant is starting to look more and more fun, not to mention a good source of income and an opportunity for career flexibility.
I first learned about cabi in 2010 after being invited to their fall fashion show, The Scoop. After getting to fully experience the cabi brand, I was hooked. They have some of the most flattering and stylish clothes I’ve seen for women. Not only are their clothes fabulous, they have one of the highest retention rates in the direct sales industry. With cabi, Stylists can earn 25 – 33 percent on personal sales.

Jillian Chase is a US based company that is the brain child of a company that has been in business for more than fifty years with great success. With monthly promotions, bonuses, a fast start program and many levels to achieve even greater income level for everyone. Plus, you don’t have to deliver the product or be limited in where you sell. This company believes in providing the best in customer service and cares about the consultants who represent them. Not great at parties? That is okay, with Jillian Chase, you can sell individually or online. Yes, they have great rewards, too, for the Host or Hostess who does have the party. This company is very unique in that MEN really love the products. Take a look at the catalogue online and see why. Did I mention you don’t have to carry inventory? Also, your very first pieces will be customized just for you to use in your home and to share with family and friends. So, if you decide the company is not for you, there is no lost. You still keep the beautiful pieces at incredible savings.
I have been reading a lot about DSD the last few days and am almost ready to signup. My biggest concern however has to do with paypal withholding funds during the first few months. That is, a person sales items at profit on ebay, then goes to Amazon to dropship the items to the customers, but can’t use the funds that they received from sells on ebay to make the purchase on Amazon because paypal is holding the funds until proof is brought that the sold item has already been shipped.
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
Hi! I am an Independent Consultant for Rodan + Fields. I just joined a month ago. Our industry is skincare- and we are the number one skincare line. My favorite product is our unblemish regimen because I've seen people use it who've struggled with acne for years and tried endless amounts of products and unblemish is the only one that's worked for them. I chose this company because the products are incredible- I'd never sell something that didn't yield incredible results. This is definitely a company worth joining!!

Many of the at-home jobs you hear about are very job-like in nature. You’ll have set hours you have to work (although those hours might not be 9 am to 5 pm) and you’ll need to show up every day on schedule. These jobs are going to be really hard to pull off if you have small children at home, but if your kids are in school or at childcare for most of the day, you may be interested in a part-time remote job.


And did you see that? Team members? I'm about to promote to Director in the next month - just six months after starting. And again, not because I've been badgering people to join, just because I'm connecting with people who love the products and, for whatever reasons, want to become a consultant. I have one team member who has a $150/month deficit in her current budget, but she is a single mom and need something she can do on her own timing. Another wants to learn to cook better and loves the products. Another lady just retired and needs some extra income and wants to get out and meet people still. I'm super grateful for the team I signed up with as well. They've been great to work with, super helpful, and don't pressure me to do anything other than reach my own goals.

Writing – Whether it is blog content, articles, or business letters, this way of monetizing your skills has become quite common. Micro-job sites like Fiverr allow you to post your skills as “gigs” that you sell for a price, usually a few dollars. Sites like Freelancer and Upwork are “business to consumer” sites where sellers are linked with buyers. Most of the time jobs are awarded based on skills, qualification, buyer needs, and bids made by the seller (you, the freelancer) to get the buyer’s work done. Other sites screen you by requiring you to provide a sample before you are graded and placed in the appropriate writer level based on your writing skill.

The structure of MLMs is very similar to a pyramid scheme. This doesn’t mean that all MLMs are pyramid schemes, but some certainly are. Those interested in pursuing a career in multi-level marketing should do research before joining a particular MLM. Generally speaking, if the bulk of the money you stand to earn comes from recruitment rather than direct sales, it’s wise to be very cautious.
Another growing reality that could benefit MLM and related businesses is the increasing number of baby boomers who are disenchanted with their current careers.  They’re worn-out from years of the corporate grind and don’t feel the connection between their job and the people it impacts outside their office walls or company grounds.  They’re shifting their focus from accumulating a giant nest egg to a desire to be part of something bigger and better… to have a positive effect on others... and working in retirement.  Facets of life that can be fulfilled with specific types of products and service available through some MLM or Direct selling opportunities.
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.
This company also offers, among the majority on this list, one of the greatest opportunities for big money. Glassdoor reviewers give it high marks and those I know who sell the product really seem to enjoy doing so. But success with Rodan and Fields absolutely hinges on your ability to invest time, enthusiasm, and of course, money into the product. Social networking is a must. As I've said with a few of the other companies on this list, I also personally see a locale aspect to success in selling this product. I live in a place where most people earn a low-medium income and I know this stuff would be a hard sell--not because it doesn't work, but because most people around here wouldn't be able or willing to spend that much money on skin care. If you're in a predominantly wealthy area and network with people who really care about appearance and skin care (say, in a big city) though, this is a company worth looking into.
Busting out into a world where you are met with travel bloggers, hotel jumpers, and digital wanderers, seems to me that #wanderlust had to be one the best ideas ever…out of the MLM industries.  A lot of people are willing to work far away and alone, and a big reason is because people want to travel and see the world. Therefore, a remote income business with a travel MLM company just seems like the right move.   World Ventures came out with a solid effort in the travel niche, and was named as one the incorporation 5000’s fastest growing companies 2 times in a row.
I would love to share with everyone how AMAZING Scentsy is! The main product offered are warmers and wax which is a much safer alternative to scented flame candles. BUT Scentsy is so much more than that with something for everyone including the kids. Skin care, Laundry care and much more. Honestly you don’t need sales experience because everything basically sells itself. I haven’t met anyone who after smelling and sampling Scentsy didnt love it and come back for more! As a DS company, Scentsy offers so many lucrative incentives like trips around the world and amazing commissions. Please allow me to share my love of Scentsy with you! Contact me today to change your life for the better! http://www.sharethelove.Scentsy.us or tiffanyciara@yahoo.com Thanks and have a blessed day!
If you grew up in the 70s, you probably remember the Avon lady coming to your door saying … “Avon calling!” Or maybe your mom hosted a Tupperware Party when you were younger. The direct sales industry has come along since then, and it can be a great way to earn money from home. If you're not familiar with this business model, here's the gist of it.
So many great ideas!! I didn’t see Pampered Chef or Lia Sophia though. I don’t see either of those, but know people who do. I am a Team Beachbody Independent Coach – I love it. What better way to get into great health and stay that way – healthy and sustainable! The best part is all the people that you get to meet and getting excited for them when they can do things that they couldn’t do before. Personally, I have Multiple Sclerosis and through the Shakeology and workout programs, I have lost 25 pounds and gained the nourishment that my body needed for energy to get me through the day. MS fatigue is horrid, but Shakeology fights it more than my script for fatigue does. Amazing how I feel. I’d love to help others find their personal best – if any one wants to have one on one support! It’s free for support. :) Just join as a member (there is a free option) http://www.lisalesliefitness.com. Or check out my blog – http://www.lisalesliefitnessblog.com Again, thanks for the post!

As I write this I'm just a couple of weeks away from beginning our first year of homeschooling and I'm so excited. Why? Because learning toys and activities are even more fun when you're almost 30, apparently. Fundanoodle is a company that gives busy moms like homeschool moms the chance to earn some extra income selling products they themselves use every day, including interactive books and activities that give kids a chance to practice their reading, spelling and writing skills along with other important developmental goals.
