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.

That is probably a terrible thing to say but I think I’ve driven myself insane. I have worried about this lump in my breast for days. I was up so late last night thinking about it that I was up early this morning. I just laid there staring at DH and Whistle britches, the littlest DS sleeping away.
“I wonder if it would hurt if I touched it. No, I better not push it. That might make something bad happen. Like what? If its cancer its already bad. Yeah but what if it breaks?”
Something like that over and over. So I finally get up at dawn and proof the articles I had to write and sent them in. I now have the second round of 20K due to my editor by next Wednesday. So Ive been steadily plugging away at that. Every time my mind wanders to the lumpy breast area I think of some intricate formula Im having to convey for the lay person.
Im setting goals like 3000 words before I can get my next cup of coffee etc. Just to stay focused on something besides my boobs. Tomorrow I can go to the doctor and find out if Im dieing or not.
