View Full Version : Work from home
03-17-2008, 10:15 AM
Just wondering if anyone knows a good, reputable way to work from home. I have twins (18mo) so it would have to be something I can do while taking care of them but it would really help if I could have some income. My husband works really hard so I can stay at home with our daughters but I would love to find some way to help out. Thanks for any advice!

I love being an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay. I just started up my business again when I went on maternity leave and I can't believe I ever took a "break" from it. The products are great and it's easy to build a customer base. Start with your family and friends and the women at all the doctors appointments you have to go to. You work when you want, and better yet they can order on-line. Not to mention you can get so much on-line support and education, so you don't have to leave the house to get trained.
There is so much recognition and great ways to earn that extra cash and even company cars.

"For those of you that work for Melaluca. Cause I'm betting at least one of you does. is it like company policy not to say anything about melaluca until you have someone on a conference call?"
Yup, that would be me, Jordyn. ;D but I work WITH Melaleuca, not FOR them. It is my own business and how I approach it is my choice. I don't generally mention the company itself until I am personally talking to an interested individual, but I rarely use a conference call, only if the person is interested in the business as well.
My reason for this is that I do not ever want to make someone feel pressured to buy products from me. If they express interest in the products or the company I'll lay it out for them - conference them if they choose - but I refuse to high pressure anyone.
The only real policy I have to be concerned with is the one where I do not make false claims for their products. They have had problems with that in the past. I tend to underclaim, overdeliver.
They do provide training materials for those who wish to use them and I believe that it is SUGGESTED that you get them on a conference call if you are inexperienced or feel that the potential customer would be more comfortable, but in no way do they state that you should not be upfront about what company you work with.
I have never had a problem with them in terms of delivering on their product claims. And if they make a mistake, they'll bend over backwards to make it right.
Why? Have you had a bad experience with them? I'm sorry if you have. That could be the representative, rather than the company.

To 1st time mom again,
Yea I did the conference call and everything. When I got on with the rep I said no because I already know I would only be spending money and not making money with the company because I'm a shy person and I don't know tons of people to get to sign up.
From what I understand that's all the job is getting people to sign up. And I would make no money doing that because the few people I do know do not want to switch their cleaning products. I didn't want to buy the products either so it was a no either way.
She wouldn't take no for an answer and kept insisting it would be easy to make money and that everyone wants to go green so it would be no problem getting people to sign up. I disagreed and she said she would call me back because she was tired of arguing then she told me that if I didn't sign up she would feel sorry for me because my son would probably get cancer from regular cleaning products and the baby shampoo I use... I told her I felt like I was being attacked and I could not push someone like that into signing up for something. I said if being pushy like her was what the company was about I was not gunna do it. and then she just said she would try to call me back the next day. The next time she called I didn't pick up the phone.
I'm glad to hear you don't pressure people though because it's really not fun to feel like you are being pushed into something.

Sounds like you were dealing with a bad rep. It's amazing how many don't realize that pressure sales turns off more people than it turns on. And even the ones they do bring into the company become disillusioned easily because these same reps tend to be the ones who oversell and underdeliver.
I am so sorry that you had that experience. If you ever decide that you'd like to reconsider, e-mail me :D 'cause I won't do you like that. Often if I sign up someone who feels as you do, I simply sell (soft sell, not high pressure) the membership for the products and not the business.

I am currently working with Melaleuca as well. Im a very shy person so I am having trouble convincing people to just try it. I will admit that I love not having to leave my home to shop and the products are great. I would continue to use the products even if I don't succeed in the business. If anyone would want to view a presentation check out www.workathomeunited.com/heinsb. I have tried other work at home programs and I do believe this is lagite. I just wish I had more time to put into it. Its difficult when I have a five year old and two jobs. If anyone else has any good work at home job opportunities please let me know, I would be interested in staying home.

I saw this... and I think I'm going to do it if someone can tell me that it's legal. I just don't want to be hauled away in cuffs!

Congrats on your twins !!
Not sure if you are looking to make some extra money or enough to earn your regular paycheck, but I have been supplementing my income for the last five months. It is not much but I have made over $300 in that time.
Please check out my blog for more information on working from home and supplementing your income.

I have done candle parties. Everyone loves candles! If not for themselves then for gifts. I sold Partylite candles, and I still use and purchase Partylite products! Everything is of the best quality, tested, and hand crafted. You have a party and you can get started. That easy!!! I believe if someone is asking for money to get you started, then you will not be profitting much from it. You should not have to pay someone to give you a job. So no matter which job you choose make sure you aren't giving them your money to work! Make sure you are Risk-Free! Go to partylite.com if you want to research it any further.

Thanks for your reply hullj. I love Partylite but I already know of a couple people that sell that around here and it isn't too productive in this area. But yes I agree that Partylite is wonderful. I know someone in a bigger city that made enough to quit her day job and sell it full time but I live in a SMALL country area. But thanks anyway for the tip!

Hey, No problem Littleape. I worked in a small town too. I didn't know alot of people, but I stayed busy for a while until I moved. I am sure I would have ran into that problem eventually if I had stayed. Anyways, Good luck and I hope you find what you are looking for!
