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!
The company I work with is EXACTLY what you are looking for. Please visit my website at www.HealthyLivingIncome.com to learn more. I'd love to share this GREAT opportunity with you.
I completely understand what you are going through. I have two children of my own that I fight to stay home with and raise. The company that I work for helps others as well as myself and my family.

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?
"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 '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.
