  1. What a wonderful post! I wholeheartedly agree with everything you said. You have to build relationships and then you gain people’s trust that you really do know what you’re talking about and you’re not just trying to “make a sale” or “gain a recruit”. If you’re honest, there’s no reason for lies, scams, hidden anything.

    Yes, most often times there’s a cost to work at home businesses, but if you’re with a good, legitimate company, you’re getting what you pay for and not just paying for nothing. Can you make these payments and then just sit back and expect to make that payment back? No, usually not, if ever. You have to have the desire and the dedication to want to succeed and work hard to earn your money, you’re exactly right!

    Question of the day: I work with Scent-Sations, Inc., home of the Mia Bella candles and melts and absolutely LOVE it! It’s actually the second time. I loved them so much that I came back to them and am here to stay. I’ve tried some other things in between the times I’ve been with SS and found some good and some bad, but I don’t want to mention any names. Maybe just some advice…be careful what you’re paying for and make sure you’ve got the sponsor/up-line support that you need. Listen, learn, work hard, and just plain use your head. 😉

    1. Thank you for your comment. I appreciate you stopping by for the first time and leaving some feedback on your personal experience!!

  2. I LOVE being an Independent Beachbody Coach. I don’t buy anything that I don’t use, I feel that my costs are very low and get paid to get fit and help others. Beachbody has been a blessing for me in so many ways and I’m sure could be the same for others. Anyone who wants to learn more should visit my website at or email me at

  4. Great post! I totally agree with you, you have to get to know people and not just come at them as another salesman. I’ve worked with a few different home-based companies, including Avon and Mark. and I’ve done affiliate marketing too but now I am an independent business owner through Amway Global and I love it! I know that some people are scared of Amway or think it’s a terrible scheme but I’ve been very successful and have not had any problems at all, plus, the products are AMAZING! It’s my business and I can work as little or as much as I want to – it’s totally up to me. If you have any questions, just let me know, You can check out my store, Assorted Essentials, at Thanks so much for the info.
