Becoming a Consultant is usually fairly easy. As a consultant you are an independent business owner. You primarily market the products. You can choose between full-time or part-time work. To get started you make an investment in some inventory. Investments vary and many are in the 100.00 - 150.00 range.

Your goal is to sell the products and earn a commission. So be sure to pick something you are passionate about. Remember the more products sold, the more money the representative earns.

Choose from the companies or products that really get your attention. This is going to be your job, or at the very least a side income.

Before joining any company, ask questions and never sign up quickly or on the spot. Do your research. Be prepared and give yourself the time to think before you make any type of commitment or investment.

Go to the company's website and click on the consultant or career opportunities link. You can read what the independent consultant does and what type of investment is needed. Most companies provide the contract information for you to fill out online.

Many independent consultants love what they do. The most successful ones built their business over a period of time, they learned their product and they did the work to build their customer base. Being successful in this type of work won't come over night. But patience does pay off. Many women report this is a great money earning opportunity for them, as they step into being stay at home Moms.


Word of mouth and referrals are the best way to get new business.


Pick something you will enjoy, or you won't be successful.
