Hame based business like AVON, Tupperware, Pampered Chef, etc get a bad rap. The fact is they are not easy to make work. But the other fact is that they most assuredly CAN work and do everyday.
A lot of it has to do with the incredible amount of help these companies provide you to get started. I have sold AtHome America, AVON and MaryKay and you get an incredible amount of stuff to help you get started and keep going. They want you to succeed. You make money they make money.
But what you arent given is some very important information.
That is isnt all that easy, that is is harder, MUCH harder than working for someone else and it takes a LOT of perseverence to make it work. I found this article that I would say is incredibly important to read if your thinking about starting a home business.
