Once you have decided that you would like to become an independent consultant, you should treat it no differently than if you were starting your own business.  I have heard skeptics caution against direct sales because of the initial investment, but it is important to remember that those people are typically unfamiliar with how direct selling works. As with any business venture there will be start-up costs, but luckily one of the great perks of direct sales is that these costs are low.  Many opportunities allow you to start your business for just $100 to $200.  You invest a small amount into the company, and they provide you with the tools you need to succeed.  You will want to consult with the each business you are interested in to find out exactly what is included in your joining fee, but it may include: business cards, products to use for demonstrations, catalogs, promotional materials, and access to senior consultants to provide mentoring. 

At times you may find limited time offers that include joining incentives.  These offers may lower the joining fees, offer you more product or tools for your business or both.  It is often a great time to get involved in a company that you were already thinking of joining anyway!

Jamberry Nails is the perfect example of one those companies offering an incentive.  Start your business for just $99 (USD) plus shipping and handling and Jamberry Nails will send you a starter kit with all of the materials you will need to run your own Jamberry Nails business.  The incentive ~ You can receive a $50 rebate of your joining fee just for reaching your first month Fast Start Rewards.  Contact Kristin Swartz for more information on the incentive and the Fast Start Program.*YKTcAVTUFOw9ebOOr527OZSN1uei89dDyuqsx3Qh-ptYdkUrSx-Z8QuDDV4VWMWf0g36XMpYYYRZjjqaCLyPwnZSBwr/Augustkit.jpg
