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."

Unlike many MLMs that sell products directly to consumers, Digital Altitude sells a business system to entrepreneurs in the form of courses and methods that teach them to effectively market their own companies. While many of the packages can cost thousands of dollars, Digital Altitude offers a $1 trial, making the risk to try its product very low for the consumer.
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
I am stylist for Color Street Nails. It’s 100% nail polish, no dry time, no heating, no smudges and make in USA. Ladies are so amazed the first time they try it, it practically sells itself. The company just started in 2017 so it’s a new but fast growing company. Only $129 for the kit, no inventory is required, so no getting stuck with products you don’t want! My Facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/groups/AmazinglySimpleWithKim or my website is http://www.AmazinglySimpleWithKim.com. I’d love to have new people join my team!
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!!!
The major defining difference between other companies and MLM, is that they don’t mass market themselves, spending millions of dollars on television, radio and internet ads, but instead allocate that portion of their budget to pay hard working distributors who pound the pavement, form personal al relationships with clients, advocate their product, and hence donthe “marketing” for them.
Each company above is profiled in this supplement, with employees and executives sharing why they believe their company is a Best Place to Work in Direct Selling. All profiles are based on questions presented by DSN to companies. Quantum Workplace, our third-party vendor, conducted the research and compiled the results for this program (please see page 34 for more information about Quantum and the contest).
This company seems really awesome to me as a busy mom because obviously you're not going to hold inventory or even parties (unless you're also going to market Gardenuity's small "Garden Inspired Living" line of teas, home decor and home fragrances). The stock seems seasonal, giving customers a reason to peek back each season to see what they can grow next. So, your compensation is based on your ability to market the brand/product and from there you'll earn a percentage of the sales. But what IS that percentage? It's not clear. I have a message into the Gardenuity customer service and will be back ASAP with an update.

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. : )
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.

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!
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.
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.
I believe the ones that don’t make it in the industry (if they chose a good one) don’t give it enough time (like you said they quit before a year is up) and commitment to doing what it takes to grow. I don’t spam FB and only 2 family members order product but I have at least 100+ home school moms making >$2000/mth. Some team members make more, some less. It’s what they put into it (business wise not monetary)

I have had the pleasure of being a designer with origami owl for almost a year and it has truly been a blessing. The product sells itself. The startup fee is a low $150 and you make that much if not more on your first jewelry bar. You make an amazing 30-50% profit on the product which is unheard of. If you have any questions feel free to email me deedeeslockets@gmail.com or check out my website Deedeeslockets.origamiowl.com
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? 

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.
I’ve written ad nauseum about the idea of offering special, confidential deals with “elite” networkers. Confidential deals occur when a company provides extra incentives to lure experienced networkers from another company. The incentives take many forms, but usually involve up-front money, preferred placement in the genealogy, enhanced earning potential in the pay plan, etc. If you look historically at the companies that have been aggressive with deals, theres always a massive POP followed by a massive DROP. Who gets hurt? The average distributors that signed up under the pretenses of joining the “next hot thing.”
It all sounds good on paper, yet there is a seemingly endless debate over whether these companies and programs are legitimate business opportunities or not, so I dug in and got the real scoop.  As a result, I believe that the entire industry is poised for explosive growth and can be one of the most significant solutions to America’s current retirement savings crisis.

You, not stats, dictate your success. Like most things in life, success or failure mostly relies on the individual. Certainly, the MLM industry has a vast sea of reps who don't make much money or who quit, but there are reps who are meeting their income goals and some (a small few) are rich. The same could be said about bloggers and most other entrepreneurial ventures. 
loved your notes..... great opportunities are for everyone and anyone. It's not about being black or white, rich or poor, fat or thin, educated or dropping out, it's about taking a chance on yourself, ......ask questions, make friends, get new fun experiences and earn a few extra dollars too. I tried a few, stuck with mary kay 12 years....when I worked, it worked,.....when I did nothing....well you know. Pray and ask GOD where you need to be.....you can do anything.
I feel blessed to have found this opportunity and my purpose will always be to glorify God. I also love helping my team members and customers become the best versions of themselves. Join me — it's fun and you too could change your financial future! If you send me a PM, I'll send you a business presentation to watch. I'd also love to send ya free samples to try!
