I guess by best, you would have to define your idea of "best"

Easiest to sell? Longest lasting? Most scent choices? Etc.

Then, what would your goal be? You would like to pay off some bills, but how does that look for you? Do you want to sell at fairs and shows? Or home parties? Or even have a store?
Do you need weekends free? Or would you rather do catalogue/basket parties?

Etc etc.

Also, look at how much work/profit you're looking at. It may be easier to sell a $1 tea light vs. A $20 warmer, but you'll have to do 20x as many sales to make the same profit.

All good places to start narrowing down your search!! What are you thinking?

Cheers, Rachel

yes, "BEST" is such a subjective word isn't it? Around here, the talk is now of " who is the best 2nd grade teacher"? haha
I believe there is no best, simply what works for us as individuals.I'm with companies I love but would be as happy with other companies if I had to re-choose.There are many great companies, all with similartities and differences that will appeal or not appeal to individuals. Go with your instinct-your heart- when making a choice

Love your message Debra!! Absolutely TRUE! And when you find something you believe in, you feel passionate which breeds successl!! Nothing better than loving what you do, that itself will generate sales, interest and ultimately friends or team members! Best wishes as you find what works for you!. As an owner, of course I pray for good team members that take it as seriously as yourself, I do however advise anyone to truly find what is the best fit for them, whoever that is.

I recently started with Jewelry In Candles. They are a new company that just launched this year so an opportunity to get in on the ground floor. The best part about up is sign-up is completely free. You do not have to buy a kit or pay for your website! That appealed to me.

I have tried other candle companies and while I liked many of their products I felt I was swimming at the bottom of the tank so to speak. I wanted to find a newer company because it seems to be the people who get in early on, and stick with it, are the ones who end up at the top.

Good luck finding the company that fits you best and let me know if you have any questions about Jewelry In Candles.

Smile What did you decide?

So, what did you decide? I've been in direct sales - off and on - for 17 years. I've done my share of research and long decision making too. PartyLite is my first candle company and I would not change that decision for the world. I was a customer for 4 years before started my business so I was very familiar with the product and passionate about it. I hope you find the right fit for you.

Think you have to find what is best for you. Each candle company offers amazing products. You need to find one that you are passionate about.
Look for great a company that you can offer something to your community that they need. Be sure to see how many reps are in your area.Be sure that the company works well with all levels of consultants....not just the higher level ones. Check out the commission rate, commission given on team building and what it takes to stay active in the company.

I am with Pink Zebra...but that may not be a fit for everyone.
I have friends who sell Party Lite and Gold Canyon. They are just as happy with the company they are with, as I am with PZ.

I definitely believe Pink Zebra is the best for everyone. I always tell everyone to look at the commission structure, price points, and Interview your potential Sponsor!

Most importantly with any company is interviewing your potential sponsor to see what they have to offer you.

Hi! Good question!

I am going to address it based on my experience with business opportunities in general. Through my journey of researching and deciding what to join, these are some of the things I look for:

1. Which company offers the most for the money? For example, when I researched candle companies, one company makes customers buy 6 tart packs just to get one piece of jewelry! The company I chose offers a piece of jewelry in every tart pack (and they are priced lower, too).

2. Which company offers the highest commissions? The company I joined offers the highest commissions I saw in my research.

3. Start up and continuing costs? Hidden fees? The company I chose has none. I don't spend/invest any money unless I want to.

4. Customer appeal and use? I think it's obvious that candles appeal to most customers.

5. Trust your instincts. If something feels right to you, then go for it!

I joined the companies I joined because I really liked them and had a good feeling about them. I enjoy promoting them and will soon enjoy using them (one I am waiting for to arrive in the mail and one hasn't launched yet).

I hope that helps!

Blinky :-)
