Today on the show we talked about direct sales. This is a booming industry and can be a great way for moms to work from home and make extra money for their households. We discussed the pros and cons of the direct sales industry. Here are a few things we discussed:
- Make sure that you research a company before you join as a consultant. Know their policy and procedures on topics such as internet marketing, commissions, bonuses, etc. Before you shell out any money to get started, know what you are getting yourself into.
- Direct sales is not for everyone. In general, you need an outgoing, organized personality to be successful in the industry.
- Keep track of your expenses. Direct sales is the same as being in business for yourself. Many of your expenses are tax deductible at the end of the year. But in addition, tracking your expenses can help you know whether you are making or losing money in the long run.
- Follow your heart. Don’t invest your time or energy in a company or product that you don’t believe in just because other people are successful with it. You will be successful at what you are passionate about. Find a company in line with your interests, values and ethics.
