Being Your Own Boss

Copyright © Michael Laleye

Does the idea of being your own boss, making your own hours
and your own business decisions sound incredibly attractive
to you? But does it seem like a pie-in-the-sky dream? It
doesn’t have to be. There are lots of ways to be your own
boss and make a respectable living with a home-based
business. One of these ways is to get involved with mlm
opportunity work.

What is mlm? It’s multi-level marketing. Don’t worry; though
they have similarities, mlm opportunity work is not the same
as pyramid schemes. No one is being defrauded. You become an
independent consultant or distributor for a product, one
that has true value for the purchaser. These products can
range from cosmetics to herbal supplements to distinctive
cookware and gadgetry for the kitchen.

One of the benefits of mlm work, other than the whole being
your own boss angle, is a low start-up cost. This type of
home business can be started for as little as a few hundred
dollars used to purchase a sample kit of the products you’ll
be selling. Using these samples, you start developing
contacts and taking your new home business on the road. Talk
about your mlm opportunity with both potential customers and
others who might like to get into the business on their own.
If you sign them up, you earn part of the commissions on
their sales. They’re making money. You’re making money.
Everyone’s happy in their home-based mlm business world.

What are some of the companies that provide home business
mlm opportunity work? Familiar names like Arbonne, Mary Kay
Cosmetics, Pampered Chef, Herbalife and Longaberger come to
mind. These companies have been around long enough and have
good enough reputations that you don’t have to deal with the
ugly reputations attached to some companies. Thousands of
women use Mary Kay cosmetics every day. And Longaberger
baskets are holding fruit and magazines in homes around the
world. The products are high quality, which helps your home
business thrive because people want quality products for
their hard-earned money.

Once you’ve decided which company looks most attractive to
you, learn all you can about that company so that you feel
comfortable in your new home-based business endeavor. You’ll
also be able to answer any questions that come from
potential customers. You don’t want to be faced with a
question you can’t answer. This doesn’t reflect well on you
as an independent product distributor or the company whose
products you are selling. After you’ve made the decision,
done your homework and actually made the capital outlay for
a sample kit, it’s time to hit the road to showcase the
product and generate the first sales in your new home-based
mlm business.
