Because I want to stay home with my kids, I have been looking for ways to make money from home. A friend of mine suggested I go into home party businesses, where I would sign up to promote and sell a company’s products at home-parties. After researching the pros and cons of a home party business, I have decided that it definitely isn’t for me.
I’m Not a Salesperson
Some people are just born salesmen. I am not one of them. I am really not very good at the art of persuasion, and I definitely think that would be a hindrance to the home party business. The whole premise of a home party business is selling products. Since income is based on commission, I don’t think it would be very profitable for me.
I’m Not Pushy
Not everyone who runs a home party business is pushy, but in order to build a good business you do need to be a bit forward. For example, throwing a party isn’t always as nice as advocates make it sound. Your friends know that you are throwing the party specifically so that you can sell something, and they often feel obligated to come when they would rather stay at home. Plus, if I recommend something to people I know, I want to be sure I can stand behind it 100%. I’m not so sure I could find a product or company that I was that comfortable with.
It doesn’t help that I happen to live in an area with very little family around and only a few friends. I don’t have a large network of people to turn to when it comes to selling my items. This may not be a problem right away, but what am I supposed to do when I have thrown a few parties and invited everyone I know? I’m really not comfortable branching out and trying to sell things to people I don’t know. I think it would be difficult for me to turn the home party business into a long-lasting source of income.
The research has shown me that at home party businesses work for some people, but just weren’t right for me. I have decided to explore the ATM machine business as a way to make money instead. There are many options when it comes to working from home, so I am being careful to ensure that I find the perfect fit.
