    Pros

    You are your own boss. You are the business owner. Great tax benefits. You make your own schedule. Your success is solely your responsibility. So many great online training courses and also lots of meetings all over the states. Great support groups.

    Cons

    Relying on a customer base to make money. Having to keep inventory on hand to really be on top of your game to provide products to customers right away. Having a required about of $ you have to order in order to stay active.
