Default Mia Bella Candles

I would invest with Mia Bella Candles, but that may be because I LOVE the company so much. You need to find something that you would enjoy doing. If candles would be of interest please let me know and I can give you more information.

Good luck in your search.

I'd make $100 worth of something I could give away for free.

I love giving away free stuff. Works for me. People come to get the free stuff and click around my blogs. I have too giving of a nature to 'sell' things. I give away the free stuff and let the website or ads 'sell' for me.

I would invest it in something that would be easy to sell. Something in high demand. Something where the product does it's own selling. If it requires too much work, you may lose interest in it quickly.

that is what I was thinking too. I've sold avon on and off over the years. I liked it because I could give out the brochure, collect the orders, didn't have to host parties, low investment.

I would invest in a Watkins home business. The products are so good they sell themselves.

Personally, I would spend my money in a network marketing business. The long term residuals seem to be better.

Product- the real question on this one is whether you know people who would want to buy the product and/or whether there is a market demand for it. The product line must be remarkable enough to grab someones attention.

Compensation Plan - As a business, your in it to make money. So take a good look at how quickly and how much money you can make. Must have a plan that pays the part-timers well enough to make it worth while and the full timers enough to acheive their dreams. Do they have bonuses? How quickly are they paid out?
How quickly can you make back your initial investment for kits, etc.

Duplicatable System - Especially when you just get started it is absolutely critical that you have a simple, proven, duplicatable system that you can use. A good company and team will have this for you. I can not emphazise enough how important this is to your success.

It Works has all of the above and more. Our Sept promo gets you a kit with product (not samples) that you can turn around and get you money back plus be $100 ahead.

$100 isn't much to invest. I would probably pay for a domain and hosting, and start a website.
