Chances are you know a lot of people who have their own home business on the side. After all, there are at least 100 million people on the planet running their own small businesses as independent distributors for over 1000 different companies, and the numbers are growing.
The way I look at it, if I need to buy something, I would rather buy from my friends first. There is a great saying I heard a few years back, “Would you reach past your friend to shake hands with a stranger?” For some reason, there are many people who know their friends sell a type of product that they use regularly, but these people would rather go to WalMart and pick up something cheap instead. To me, that says a lot about their friendship.
When I sat down to look at what we buy from friends, I was actually a bit shocked.
This is how we support our friends:
- Tupperware from David
- Personal Protection Products from Nicole
- Candles from Paula
- Essential Oils from Abby
- Bags from Shana
- Cleaning products from Stephanie
- Chocolate from Lianne
- Fun Jewelry from Karen
- Seasonings from Shirley
- Kitchen Utensils from Melodie
- Antioxidants from Lynne
- Men’s Clothing from Graham
- Nutritional Shakes from Rebecca
- Supplements from Kellie
I may be missing someone. Apologies if I forgot to include. These are just the current friends and products who we support. There have been others over the years. And, YES, my friends support my business as well.
Growing up, I remember my mother supported a few of her friends as they started their businesses in Avon, Tupperware, and Mary Kay. Must be a family tradition.
For anyone who might be curious, I sell the world’s best line of skincare and nutrition products with minerals for the Dead Sea. This includes, hair care, body lotions, facial products, men’s products, vitamin+herbal supplements, and soon to be much more. Our company is listed in the TOP 100 of all Direct Sales companies in the world, and rising up the list fast.
It’s your choice – If you use shampoo, moisturizer, hand cream, vitamins, soap, or other common body care products, you can get them cheap from WalMart, or I can introduce you to much better quality products at a reasonable price.
Thank you to those friends who choose to support my growing business.
