Have you ever thought about starting a side hustle. Direct sales is becoming a very popular alternative to finding a second job.
People join direct sales for a variety of reasons. A personal shopper joins to get discounts on the products they already use. A mother of young children may join so she can stay at home, and still contribute to the finances of her family without having to pay for child care. A college student may join to help pay for books and other expenses associate with school. A retired salesmen may join to stay connected, and some may join to replace their full time income.
It doesn’t matter which reason a person joins direct sales, everyone starts the same, by joining.
When joining direct sales be prepared to pay a start up cost. This usually includes the cost of a start up kit which often includes promotional materials (books, brochures, handouts), perhaps examples of products to share show to customers, and maybe even samples.
Every direct sales company has its own cost associated with the start up kit, and some even charge a annual fee to remain associated as a direct sales associate, representative, consultant, or any of the several terms used for those that being to direct sales.
After you review the different companies, products and philosophies, several companies may stand out as your favorites. For me after being involved in other direct sales companies I found a company that “fit” my lifestyle, my family, and had high quality products that I could feel proud to provide to friends and family.
The company I found was Avon. Avon has been available for over 130 years, and almost everyone has used these products at some point in their lifetime.
The diversity of products is astonishing. Skin care, makeup, perfume, jewelry, bath and body, fashion, gifts, home decor, and most recently health and wellness. I’m not be limited to just a few categories of products, such as supplements or cookware. Avon has been on the leading edge of skin care, makeup and perfume for years, so it just made sense that as they expanded into
diverse start areas, this company would be at the forefront of the industry. And now with thousands of products and unique lines to choose from, Avon brochures are like visiting a huge department store right from your own home.
The start up cost of Avon is surprisingly low. During the promotional “Share the Love” event you can start for Only $10 until August 20, 2018. After that time the start up kit is only $25.
