    Good products to sell, but mainly make money if you recruit others to sell.

    Pros

    Independent sales representative, you can set your own hours. Great way to make friends and be involved with other business people.

    Cons

    Wages increase by recruiting others to sell. Gas expense and use of your private vehicle cuts into any profits and paying shipping costs also decreases what your make off sales. You have to continually build your customer list and contact them often. Building a team instead of selling on your own is only way to make good money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Absorb the shipping costs for representatives,
