What I found and started and now I love is related to healthy coffee that contains ganoderma. I am sure many of us is addiced to coffee that is why I like this business. :) I do not consider it as selling but rather helping people, families to avoid diseases and to drink healthy coffee. I am not a mother, yet and I am doing this online business besides my regular work in order to prepare for my motherhood and to be able to work at home in 1-3 years. So I am really glad of seeing the inspiring examples here :). Thanks again for sharing!

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.
Thanks for this list. Loved seeing Monat as #1! I am a Market Partner for this company and the money is crazy good because the products are awesome. I was disappointed to see Plexus at #28 and I wasn’t impressed by what you had to say about them. Plexus is NOT a weight loss company. Their products promote a healthy gut and they are clinically proven to decrease inflammation and balance blood sugar. Weight loss is a natural side effect of body balance. The products work and there are a lot of people I know personally making good money with Plexus.
Since joining Mary Kay, I’ve met some absolutely incredible women. We’ve shared successes and failures in our weekly meetings. My sales leader has even customized the weekly meetings when I’m traveling so I can meet with my group by webinar. I don’t feel alone as a Mary Kay consultant I know I can reach out to my friends who are also Mary Kay reps, whenever I’m having difficulties. They completely understand me and help me get through whatever barriers I’m having in my business. 

I chose this company after 2 months of intense research. With a family of 5 I couldn't take an uncalculated risk:) The opportunity here was literally endless and undiniable and I wasn't afraid of the challenge to learn something new. I met in person people of all ages from across the world who were earning a great monthy income. I realized that the products are universal and I was also able to grow my art company online (Double bonus) from what I'd learned. I started eaning residual money in just two weeks from starting.
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!!

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
If want to make a little extra cash on your own terms, there's a whole industry out there waiting for you. It's called direct selling. You sell a product—ranging from gourmet foods to accessories and everything in between—for a percentage of the sales during personal meetings, parties or shows. You'll need to purchase a start-up kit of products and are typically provided some training. Companies often help you set up your own online shopping site, too (though there may be a monthly fee). Generally, flexibility is the biggest perk because you create your own hours. You'll typically earn purchasing discounts, too. If you eventually recruit others to be representatives, you'll earn a percentage of their sales as well.
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?”

The reality is, only a tiny percentage of representatives actually realize the high earnings advertised in MLM promotional materials and at meetings. Some say the big earners got in early and are positioned at the top; however, like other MLM data, this is misleading. First, it suggests that getting in early is all you need to do to be successful, which of course is false. Success comes from work. Second, many companies have been around for over 30 years, and some of their top selling reps joined last year or five years ago.
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.
(Update: In June 2017, the co-founder, Dave Wood, has for the time being stepped down following his check-in into drug rehabilitation and the company no longer exists). I wonder if the buzz of Empower Network will ever die down? This is one of those rare gems of the MLM industry that exploded onto the scene and did not hit a bump in the road by dying out only after a year of being out there.  Although now the company is on decline, and its highly doubtful they’ll make it on any lists in the years to come.

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!
Yeah you can kind of tell what this company is all about just from their name. It is one of those currently trending companies with their anti-aging business opportunity, where the company boasts about “selenium” being the minerals of all minerals to help many immune system and thyroid functions.  The company has steady development (with revenue up to $156 million per year, up at a rate of 16%), though they are unable to take over the market.  They are just in a market with too many big named competitors (i.e. Nerium, Jeunesse).
Our 2018 contest was open to direct selling companies with at least 40 full-time employees based in North America. Any employer or employee could have nominated their company during the open period last fall, which ended on October 23, 2017. Each nomination included a contact person who received all of the communications from Quantum. After the nomination period ended, Quantum sent out an official invitation to each company to begin the survey process.
Mary Kay is changing the lives of millions of women worldwide. I'm very proud to be an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay because the company has such an outstanding focus on empowering women and truly changing lives. I became a beauty consultant after spending thousands of dollars on Mary Kay products in my lifetime and finally decided that I should make the leap to start my own business selling the products that I enjoy wearing and rely on for my daily beauty routine.
I went on to your link and checked out the video and then I was thinking it only targets people who need to lose weight what if you could find a company that targeted everybody and could be used for any health Improvement. I’m actually in a company just like this and if you want to make real money you should check this out you could also potentially get 10 times the amount of customers with what these products are capable of doing
We've just celebrated our Four Year Anniversary this month and are already getting major recognition from Vogue, NY Times, and have partnered with Target and J.Crew!

Clothes and accessories range from $16 – $112.


Your comment and it’s militant nature are the EXACT OPPOSITE of what I believe the doTERRA culture is founded upon. I hope anyone reading this thread choose to look past your article and it’s attack on YoungLiving when basing their decision as to which company they choose to go with. I want them to know that the manner in which you needlessly attacked them is in no way a representation of all the other reps nor the company itself.
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.

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?
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.

My Gorski Wellness team represents Shaklee nutrition. We work with others to help them navigate their way through the supplement world and natural health choices. Shaklee provides an opportunity to join my team and help others with their health all while working around the schedule of a busy family. You can make a difference in someone’s health and build a future for yourself and your family.
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.
Now, this one I like.  This company doesn’t use your typical Facebook stalking, 3-way calling, auto-shipping tactics.  It has leaped into the future, did its homework and decided to succeed with network marketing, finally.  The company is an affiliate business opportunity for those who are interested in some first-class digital marketing training; and the icing on the cake is that they have a free trial option.

Umm...ever heard of Amway? No direct sales / mlm list is complete without it. Founded in 1959, they are (and by a significant margin I might add) the largest global direct sales company in the world...#1. With over 450 exclusive products, 750+ patents and counting, best selling vitamin and nutrition line, top 5 skincare and makeup line, plus the legacy home products...come on now.
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.
I have been running a home based business for 2 yrs now and want encourage any woman or man out there thinking about it to stop thinking and take action now. Because truly deserve the financial freedom. I agree that finding right product to get into key to your sucess, am currently selling unrefined shea butter, african black soap and coconut oil online and within my community.

If any one is interested in some of my amazing products please visit, http://www.rgnaturalz.com. thanks and happy to help anyone with tips help you suceed. Thank you.
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.
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!
There’s not necessarily a single answer to this question because your earnings depend largely on one important factor: you. If you’re willing to put in the work, and you are working with an MLM that fits your interests and passion, you’ll probably find yourself earning a pretty penny. However, if you choose an MLM that has a mission and products that you don’t have interest in, then your chances for success are far lower.

"Motherhood is hard, and it's really hard to find time for friendship honestly, so when someone you think is a friend is actually trying to sell you something — that hurts," said Fortin. "Our MLM friends legit love the products they sell and need to make money. We get that, but let's please be genuine about our intentions with one another up front."


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."
Can you really make the big money? The short answer is yes. However, most people don't. According to an Inc.com article on direct sales, the median income for an MLM rep is about $2,400 per year. That same article profiles a mom who makes $300,000 per year. Taylor researched Nu Skin and cited a 2008 case study which showed the number of people achieving Blue Diamond status (the highest level of earnings) was 0.14% - not even a half of a percentage point.

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.

“I wouldn’t be where I am today without the knowledge I gained from [Michael’s] live events and training CDs. Two MUST-HAVE [programs] in your CD library should be ‘The Total Success Pack‘ and ‘Building a Better Life.’ I’ve listened so many times I’ve lost  count. PRICELESS information for your journey to success in business and in life… ‘Easy to do. Easy not to do’ The choice is yours.”
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 disagree with that jeremy i would recommend MLM over working a Corporate 9 t0 5 $300 weekly paycheck job anyday. I quit my job for mlm i mean why not recommend MLM when you can make 10X the more money than you can at any stupid corporate america job..Working for people are for losers and i will defend mlm for the rest of my life bro you need to get your facts straight and look on youtube to see people buying new mercedez benzs and rolls royce working with mlm
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. : )
If want to make a little extra cash on your own terms, there's a whole industry out there waiting for you. It's called direct selling. You sell a product—ranging from gourmet foods to accessories and everything in between—for a percentage of the sales during personal meetings, parties or shows. You'll need to purchase a start-up kit of products and are typically provided some training. Companies often help you set up your own online shopping site, too (though there may be a monthly fee). Generally, flexibility is the biggest perk because you create your own hours. You'll typically earn purchasing discounts, too. If you eventually recruit others to be representatives, you'll earn a percentage of their sales as well.
Another thought - this has nothing to do with direct sales but as an RN there are actually some pretty lucrative work from home opportunities that you might want to look into if you're interested in using your education, just not having to deal with the commute. Two of these are working from home as a nurse auditor or a care advisor. Basically, you can use your knowledge to give advice remotely and get paid well to do it. One site I use to look for work-from-home jobs is FlexJobs, but there are SO many out there (and many that don't cost anything- FlexJobs requires a membership). Indeed is another place to look.
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."
The trunk cost has varied a lot since the company started just 11 years ago, and there have been seasons it was as much as 4K for the 4 month selling season to purchase the trunk - which is *samples* of what they sell, not inventory. You get one of each piece (does not include home, toys or luggage.) the sizes are varied and the same for all reps - you don’t get to select the sizes you want your samples in.
