Statistics show that Mary Kay Consultants are the highest paid business women in America. 70% of the women in America who make over $100K/yr have a MK business and 2% of Americans are self-made millionaires and of that 2%, 80% are men and 20% are women. Of that 20%, 80% are with Mary Kay. The stats don't lie. They are also one of the ONLY companies that do ALL of their formulating, designing and creating in Dallas, TX. So, American made and all done in-house. They do not pay a third party to create their products for them. Pretty incredible, I'd say. This company also has 2 skincare lines that have earned the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, meaning GH tested it and everything that the product claims, it actually does...how sad that only 1 other skincare line outside of MK can make that claim???!!! REALLY?? Shouldn't ALL skincare lines be able to make that claim?? MK also has the lowest attrition rate of all of the direct sales companies. Let the facts speak!
Direct Sales— This is one of the most common ways of making money for stay-at-home moms. Direct selling is simply selling another person’s product or service to receive a percentage of the sale (commission). This has enormous potential, and can easily help you earn money online. A word of caution though — before you join any business opportunity, investigate the company, make sure the product is available and reliable, and ensure you have a good knack for selling. Stella & Dot is one of my favorite direct sales opportunities.
Hi there :) another great company to work for is Le-Vel. It’s the first company to ever have wearable nutrition that helped with mental clarity, appetite control and is time released.. We offer so many more Greta products and have helped thousands of people. It’s great for energy, body aches and pains, headaches/migraines and weight management and best it’s 100% natural, gluten free and gmo free. They also have a car allowance of up to $800 once you reach a certain amount a month.. Check it out http://www.thethrivedream.le-vel.com
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 thought That your article was very good. My wife recently joined this company called World Ventures and me being me I figured it would be like some of the other companies that she has joined. You know a bunch of women companies scentsy, 31, etc but the reason I took notice is when she made 500. I know it’s not much but i know if she can make that faster than she has with some of the others she has joined without my help then maybe this thing is the real deal. What do you know about it? I have met some of the people and they seem genuine unlike some of these others like Amway and I don’t feel like it’s all about freaking selling like most of the others. Just shoot it to me straight.

First of all, Avon “has” been. Second, Avon really needs to work on their appeal to a younger generation. Third, Avon makes it difficult for representatives to make any money unless you are purchasing a ton of catalogs and knocking on doors. The company really needs to allow representatives to advertise online, and I don’t mean spamming friends on a Facebook or Twitter feed.
Five years after leaving corporate America to be a full-time mom, Carrie started selling specialty foods to try to earn money to buy a new car. Her exhibit at a women's expo had basically zero foot traffic, but she noticed a booth with bras was packed. "The rep offered to fit me, and when I came out of the dressing room and checked the mirror, I looked like I had lost 10 pounds," says Carrie. "Who doesn't love that?"
FLP may not be the wealthiest MLM on this list, but they deserve a spot because of their long-term dedication to the aloe vera plant and products made from it. Few MLMs display such product dedication and integrity as FLP. And few MLM’s have such a concentrated niche. That screams longevity over the other hundreds of other “full service wellness” companies.
What is a network marketing professional? Tell me what that is. A person who can approach well-dressed people in Wal-mart and hand them their MLM business card? Someone who writes a list of their family and friends and then 3-way call them with their “higher-up” sponsor? Really, if someone can tell me what being a network marketing professional entails, I’m listening.
Loved the article! I am an independent representative for Jamberry. I noticed you said they are expensive at $15 a sheet. Many people don't know that one sheet is enough to do two manicures, two pedicures, and accent nails. So really $15 is way cheaper than going to the salon. Also if you buy 3 sheets you get one sheet for free so it's an even better deal! I'm totally addicted to them and so is my little girl. They also carry gel and hand/foot care products. Thanks so much for writing such an informative article.
Talk about heavyweights in the industry! Tecademics is what we call a digital company, and quite befitting because they have one the most extensive digital marketing training programs around to offer.  The founder, Chris Record, who used to be at Empower Network and was highly acclaimed there, launched Tecademics after he left that company.  This digital training arrives with a bigger price mark, but it’s not even close to what you’d have to pay for a university degree.

Seriluna manufactures spa products for everyday use that contain the safest, most effective ingredients and are meant to restore balance and enhance natural beauty. The starter kits, priced at $99 and $199 contain full-size product samples, brochures, order forms and promotional materials. You’ll also receive a free website for three months, with $10 per month charge after that.
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!!
If you’re headed towards the future, WGN will be there waiting.  This company is ready to take on the world and they just may be ready to do so.  They sell every futuristic gadget you could think of, some items include their space phones, wearable tech, and VR (virtual reality gear).  They’ve only been in business for a limited amount of years, but they are on a constant rise in the MLM list of top 100 businesses globally.
Your goals. It's possible to become rich in MLM if you choose a good company and do the work. However, most MLM owners are looking to make a little extra to pay off debt or stay home with the kids, a goal a good many reach. A part-time direct sales business can help you reach modest goals. And once you start building your business, and learn the ropes, you can build it bigger if you want.
Staci Cahill runs her Washington MLM company in a way many people can appreciate.  She keeps her personal life separate from her business life by avoiding home parties, offering instead workshops that educate prospects on the products she offers.  “I didn’t want to be that person others hid from because they thought I was going to ask them to host a party.  I like to keep my business life and personal life separate.”
Hello, I loved reading all this info, it was so helpful. I want badly to get out of the 2 hour commute and hours of being stuck in an office. I am a maker, a fiddler, I need a change. I am an RN and very interested in great health products. I want to find a company I can love and be proud of the products. I have seen something called 7.2 wellness ( 7point 2) but have not found anyone actually using it or selling it. Has anyone heard of this one?
The products themselves aren't very expensive at all so you'd probably have to sell quite a bit to make a profit, and it certainly doesn't look like a get-rich quick scheme. To me, the benefits of being a direct-sales representative for The Watkins Company are A. a discount off your own purchases, and B. the opportunity to sell a cult-favorite that's difficult to find in stores--but familiar enough to be trusted by a wide-range of consumers.

New team members are immediately given access to a training app where they watch short videos that walk them through the basics of kick-starting their business, and as they complete each training level they are able to earn prizes (fun bonus!). Once you’re through with the training track you can find extra info, ideas, and inspiration in our back office and Facebook communities. You’re also plugged into the sisterhood, which was invaluable to me when I first started out. We have an upline full of compassionate, like-hearted leaders who are available to you every step of the way (myself included!). We also have a yearly conference that’s held in Orlando (this year it’s in Nashville), where you have the opportunity to meet the Trades of Hope founders, receive in-person training, meet artisan partners, and hear behind the scenes info about the impact that you’re having as you work your business every day. I had zero direct sales experience when I jumped into this, and two years later I’ve got a good handle on how this whole relational business model works, and have built a business that is way more successful than I ever anticipated.
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.
This MLM’s motive is a great natural path to healing using Naturopathy as its guide while #cleaneating, drinking medicinal herbs, and those free-loving souls are eating it up.  Apparently, they have the “The FASTEST, healthiest, simplest weight loss program on the planet.”  Now is this just a lot of gossip…no it’s not. The company has a line of products that are certified organic.

Hi, Leslie! Thank you so much for reading and commenting. I honestly had NOT heard of SevenPoint2 but after looking at the site and the products, I wouldn't be hesitant about joining just because it's not super well-known. That might actually make it a great opportunity to join before the company becomes over saturated with consultants, giving you a chance to build a client-base and team early on.


I have been on 6 x trips to USA & visited Disneyland, also holiday at huge resort in Cancun in Mexico & climbed the ancient Myan pyramids and went to Beijing to climb The Great Wall of China with my family & daughter. These trips were never a possibility without this company that is changing so many lives. I live in Australia. I am looking for 5 motivated, purpose driven people this month who I can train to build an International business like I have from home.

As a single mom, I needed to bring in extra money on top of my salary, and I decided to take a look at direct sales companies to make money. It can be tough work, but the 7 companies I’ve listed below provide awesome products, are great to their consultants and designers, and provide lots of resources to help you be successful. The commission I’ve earned from selling Scentsy, Thirty-One Gifts, and recently Origami Owl has helped me through some very tight times. As always, read the requirements of the consultant for each of these companies before making a decision. Do you need some extra cash?

Don't you hate having to buy a bottle of wine before you know if you'll like it? Most people do. This direct sales opportunity allows you to educate people about wine while creating your own wine business. As a Boisset ambassador, you purchase a flight of wines from the company, then enjoy it with friends at a tasting. You'll earn 25 percent commission from your sales, including online, and up to 35 percent if you build a team. Kits start at $149 for a 3-bottle mini-flight. Not a wine expert? You'll get coaching from your sponsor and weekly training calls from the home office. The collection includes something for every wine palate.
You’ll also find the work much easier if you have developed a range of media-related skills and understand how to navigate the MLM world. At Be On Air Media Schools, we have a variety of programs that can prepare you for MLM success. Give any of the Ohio, Colorado, Illinois and Miami Media Schools a look. Once you decide if it is the path you want to take, you can apply online.

Because anyone can do it! I started the business after I had my 4th baby and was able to do so much of the business from my smart phone. But it was also easy to meet up with other moms for a play date and share the oils. Many moms are looking for natural options to help their families and essential oils are perfect. They can help babies sleep, give moms a natural option when they feel overwhelmed, help with the immune system, and so much more! Plus, it’s the type of product that people will continue to purchase without having to keep bugging them. doTERRA is one of the fastest growing companies right now and this really is the best time to start. In just 2.5 years, my husband was able to leave his engineering job thanks to doTERRA. And I did all that while staying home with my four kiddos. The opportunity is amazing!
In 2003, Thirty One Gifts was founded by Cindy Monroe who felt there was a need for women who didn’t have time to visit gift shops and boutiques. Thirty-One Consultants offer totes, purses, thermal bags, and organizing items at home parties, catalog parties and online. Invest in this MLM for just $99 and receive the Enrollment Kit which includes $400 worth of new products and business supplies – everything you need to successfully start your business.
Do you want to work for a company that’s not focused on selling jewelry or cosmetics? You could consider Starion Energy, an electricity supplier in the deregulated energy market that is focused on breaking up the monopoly of electricity suppliers and giving consumers a choice on their provider. Starion has independent energy representative direct sales positions available, and more information can be found by contacting the email here.
You also need to make sure the program you are interested in was evaluated by someone who actually tested it. If you find affiliate links in the review of an MLM program, the website that published the review is probably earning revenues by referring new sellers and you should understand that it might not be in the interest of the site to present the program in a neutral manner.
I would be thrilled to answer any follow-up questions from mamas who are interested in doing what I do! The more Compassionate Entrepreneurs there are, the more artisan partners we are able to take on, so if you’re even a tiny bit intrigued don’t hesitate to reach out to me to learn more. The best way to reach me is via email at cejolynntoh@gmail.com, but you can also message me on Instagram @jo.plantinghope or look me up on Facebook.

Then what? Within a year and a half, Ginny was earning $3,000 to $4,000 a month, doing two to three parties a week. However, not wanting to seem pushy, she wasn't recruiting her hostesses to sell. After her best friend signed up as a rep, and found she could finally afford to cover all her kids' sports activities, she told Ginny, "Shame on you for keeping this to yourself." That's when Ginny started recruiting anywhere and everywhere: at the supermarket, on vacation, even in restaurants. (When a fellow diner complimented her bracelets, Ginny gave them to her, along with an info kit. The woman became a rep a few weeks later.) By 2005, Ginny was making six figures annually from three parties a week and commissions on her team's sales. Meanwhile, Doug had changed jobs and was miserable. He decided to quit so Ginny could expand her business even more. His handling of car pools and homework has enabled her to achieve $1 million in cumulative retail sales and become the family's main breadwinner. Ginny admits initially feeling guilty about delegating "mom" tasks to Doug. "But I feel much more fulfilled now," says Ginny, "which is better for all of us."
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.

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!

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.
Oh, Arbonne. In the past I have had several friends and acquaintances become Arbonne consultants. Some were successful, some were not. It really came down to the time and energy they were willing (and most importantly, able) to invest in this company. Those with young kids failed. It's time consuming and requires a lot follow up with potential customers.
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.
Then what? Within three months she'd earned enough so David could quit his second job. After the military relocated them to Denver, Lisa was fortunate to meet more potential reps while selling at a local crafts show and learn marketing tricks at the company's training conference. But a few months later, David was deployed to Afghanistan. While he was gone, Leah and the boys lived in Pennsylvania with his parents. Her mother-in-law connected her with possible hosts, and her eldest son, Luke, loaded the car before events. Even David pitched in, posting specials to his Facebook page. "This business provided a needed distraction," says Leah. "It helped me and the kids forget, even if for a few hours, how much we missed Dad." When David's tour of duty ended safely in June, the family celebrated with a beach vacation in Sea Isle City, New Jersey, thanks to Leah's earnings. Now back in Denver, Leah has sales reps in three states and a growing team.
Cookie Lee Jewelry was built on the concept of empowering women to reach for their dreams. The company offers fabulous and one-of-a-kind pieces and consultants earn 50% gross profit from sales made. To start, you pay $60 for the business tools and have your choice of spending $500 for $1,000 of jewelry, or spending $99 for a pre-pack of the current season’s jewelry with a retail value of $200.

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.
If 18,000,000 Americans consider MLM their careers, yet only 0.3% actually succeed beyond average corporate America wages, do people realize that means there are barely more than 50,000 Americans “living the MLM dream” and almost 17,950,000 who just help the 50,000? Sad. I was part of team Tupperware decades ago because I wanted to buy Tupperware for my home for less. It took me about 14 months as a stay at home mother (never recruited, never pressured, my distributor didn’t like my attitude) to accomplish that task and then walked away. I live in rural America where so many fall to MLMs attempting to climb out of paycheck to paycheck living (very few good jobs) like the saved into a baptismal pool. “Disciples” is the perfect word. MLMs are just not thriving here. How many Americans can one recruit/sell to for building a business in a rural county with less than 20,000 other Americans of which 75% live below the poverty line? I see MLM victims everywhere.

"Multilevel marketing companies are defined by their business model," Janet Lamwatthananon, career advisor for ZipRecruiter, an online employment marketplace, wrote in an email. "Rather than having a traditional storefront or a website, MLMs sell their goods through consultants who are paid on commission. One way to think about MLMs is as collections of small businesses sharing a name and product line."
Some 20.5 million people were involved in direct selling in the U.S. in 2016, according to the Direct Selling Association, the national trade association for companies that market products and services directly to consumers through an independent sales force. (While many direct selling companies use an MLM model, not all do, according to the DSA.) Recruits pound the pavement hawking everything from candles to essential oils and weight-loss drinks. Some popular, newer companies include Rodan + Fields (skincare products), LuLaRoe (apparel) and Scentsy (scented products).
Selling Products — Whether you’re a maker of physical goods or someone who’s more into writing books or putting together digital downloads, you can sell your wares online. Sites like Etsy and eBay are great for selling physical goods, FBA is an interesting way to become a reseller, Amazon is the go-to site for self-publishing and selling your own books, and you can sell digital products on your own website, on sites like Etsy, or even in ClickBank.
