Hi A.! I am an independent business owner for Ameriplan. It is a wonderful 16 year old company and is the nation's #1 health benefits discount plan provider in the nation. We have awesome training and my upline is always there to help. Their promise is if you work your business consistently (even on a part time basis), you will be making six figures in 2 to 4 years. I like Ameriplan because you are marketing a very much needed service and you don't have to do home parties or keep any inventory. Please check out my website when you have a minute. www.freedomathometeam.com/acorpuz and fill out request for interview if you would like to have a phone interview. You can always send me a private em also. Good luck in whatever you choose!

Hi A.,
There are a lot of wonderful MLM's out there. I would advise you or anyone to find something that they can get excited about. Your excitement and passion will fuel your business and make it more fun.

I'm an Independent Chocolatier with DOVE Chocolate Discoveries. We do home chocolate tasting parties and show people how to entertain with minimal effort. With the way the times are, a lot of people are looking to entertain more at home and I've noticed an increase in my bookings.

DOVE Chocolate Discoveries is owned by the Mars Corp (our parent company) so our quality is incredible. Our items are not available in stores, only through independent chocolatiers. Our line up is: Drinks, Ready to Eat, Simple Desserts, Candy Making, and Tools.

Right now we have less than 1,000 Chocolatiers in the country and only about 60 in Illinois (a handful in the Chicago area). I'm going to Wisconsin, Chicago and suburbs and Indiana for parties. We could use some more Chocolatiers.

I'd love to fill you in with the details! Please visit www.dove-chocolate-discoveries.com/L. for an idea of what we offer. You can also call me at ###-###-####

Hi A.,

I am a Pampered Chef Consultant and I help families eat on a budget. I'm a mother to a 4 year old and a 1 year old (both girls). I love staying home with them and having the opportunity to work as little or as much as I like. I started with them back in August 2007 when I was 7 months pregnant.

The products sell it's self and you have FUN in the process. Consultants make around $100 per show (about 2 hours). The Pampered Chef is a great company with great people to help you achieve your dreams. You'll never have to worry about meeting a high sales quota or getting fired.

All Consultants are working their way to an all expense paid Disney World vacation for 4 this year.

Pampered Chef also introduced a new career plan, which includes promotions/raises and much more.

Let me know if this is something you may be interested in. I would love to have you on my team!

If you are interested and have many questions, I would love to come to your home and prepare a recipe for you and your friends and family. They will get to try all the awesome kitchen tools that prepares the meal in a flash.

Please let me know if you are interested. We have awesome Host specials going on right now.

Good Luck!

Hello A.,

In our pursuit to supplement our income in order to spend more time with our children and homeschool them, we decided to join an MLM company that makes sense. How about capitalizing from services that you already use. Moreover, you can capitalize from services that others already use. By becoming part of the team in this company you have the benefit of earning income from services that everybody uses. Take a look for yourself. www.5linx.net/L463365

There are many legitimate home party plans and many of them have been around for years....tupperware, pampered chef, etc etc. It all depends on your interest. You have to love what you are doing and the product you are selling. I have been in direct sales (party plans) for over 17 years with 3 different companies - each for over 5 years each and loved the product and the company each and every time.

The one I am with now (Lia Sophia Jewelry) is by far the best one I have ever been with and I LOVE the product, the guarantee, the hostess program and of course the commission I make. It's fantastic and I just wish I had found them sooner. I have been with them for 3 years now and only wish it was longer.

I would love to send you more info or discuss this with you and show you how you CAN make a great income, working on your schedule, with a tried and true product that has a lifetime guarantee and many many happy customers and hostesses.

Please let me know if you would like more info at no obligation or if you would like to see the jewelry up close and personal - I am willing to meet with you to show you the product, the company, and the compensation plan.

Hope this helps a little bit.

Shaklee has been around for 50 years. The health and wellness business is expanding and they have had profits for the past 5 quarters. They don't pay just on your sales, there are other categories that qualify you for bonuses.

One woman on my team makes about $38,000 a year and another makes $25,000 a year. I don't make nearly that amount, but I don't put as much into as they do.

I think with any MLM you need to build your own team and that can be challenging.

I can tell you more if you are interested.

A. - a quick advice and take it for what it's worth,look for a leader that can help you succeed in any MLM not for an MLM itself. You need coaching and a leader who knows how this is done. To be honest (I know first-hand), most MLMs out there are mostly cold-calling and harassing friends and family. So if you are into pushing your product on people that do not want it - might be frustrating very quickly. Before you join any MLM, please ask appropriate questions your potential up-line (such as if she/he knows how to help you generate leads for your market)and remember you can's sell me beef because I am vegetarian. Also remember, a sign of 'bad'upline is someone who tells you that product sell itself (it doesn't)and that this is not about selling (yest it is). And rememebr, it is not about product/company but about a leader who has the experience and knowledge to take you where you want to go.
Good Luck!

I am going to second the suggestion of Shaklee. The company has been around for over 50 years and it is definitely tried and true. I have been with the company off and on for 10 years and it has been wonderful.

I am able to stay home with my 2 boys. I have other moms in my group who just wanted to make a little extra money ("me money") and others who have wanted to replace an income.

None of the MLMs are a get rich quick program (and if they say they are, they are probably too good to be true), but our company does have some wonderful incentives to grow your business. Your business is what you make of it.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi A.-

I have been involved in MLM/Networking marketing and direct sales for 12 years. I just wrote an article about this.

1. Do what you love--if you love jewelry, purses or health and wellness (however--I find that health and wellness is the most difficult--it is a lot of babysitting).

2. Be excited about your product because if you are not--you will not do as well.

3. Be likable

4. Find a company with a unique twist or idea that they are marketing--lets face it their are many of companies out there doing the same thing--what makes them different and appealing to your prospective audience??

5. Stick with the company--it may take 2 or 3 years but if you have passion you can not go wrong!!

I work with 2 different groups that have many direct sales people in them and they all are great!! The only thing I use a word of caution is market saturation. There is so much of that out there!!

I am currently putting in place a direct sales model for a custom designed jewelry company (there is a retail store in the city)--and if we partner that will not be coming to market for at least a year.

I have checked out many companies and there are 2 really great ones--miessence (which is completely and totally organic products from Australia and are the best in the world. A purse company--gigi hill bags (this is the one that I am with and are running a special deal until Monday). And last but not least traveling vineyards. Please let me know if you want the websites for any one of these. I have very dedicated business associates in each one of these companies and would highly recommend any one of those!! Market niche!!!

Good luck on your journey!! If you need more info or want a copy of the article send me an email

Hi A.,
I have to say that there are many ligitimate MLM companies out there, it really just depends on your interest and passion. What do you want to do? What would you enjoy selling, and what do you enjoy using? These are the first questions I would consider, then look for a company that supports your passion!
I started selling Barefoot Books for children almost a year ago after my son was born. I wanted to sell something that I felt was important and helped make a difference for children. I've been very happy with my choice, and have really grown my business because of that. It's great to have other moms who are just as excited about Barefoot Books to sell to. I have made so many great friends, it doesn't really feel like work. :) I also liked that it didn't cost anything to become a Barefoot Books Stallholder, and my sponsor has been such a wonderful example. I try to be just as helpful and supportive to my own team members. It's really important and can make or break your experience.

Good luck with your choice, whichever one you choose. I love the flexibility I have in owning my own business! If I can be of any help, or answer any questions about Barefoot Books, please private message me, or contact me through my website, www.ReadandGrow.com.
