  • They are limited, I think they have a short life span. From my experience, once you have exhausted your family and friends, it is hard to get your sales up and keep them up

  • I’ve tried a few – but I find unless I really love the product myself – it is a hard sell!

  • I think it would depend on the number of customers you think you would get. If it’s for a business rather than just to get out and do something, perhaps consider something with a name behind it like Tupperware. Most people know what it is and the quality of the product so half your sale pitch is already done. Good luck whatever you do!

  • If you have the customers .

  • Think wisely of the outlay of money & if you genuinely can make money,you don’t want to be conned & stuck with a kit that cost you hundreds or thousands.

  • Research it well and then if you like it; give it a go! Good Luck!

  • give it a try and do something that you like

  • my mate does lorraine lea parties and does most of the parties on a weekend and makes quite a bit

  • The biggest advantage I have found that it is now my social life and I make money doing it! I meet so many people and enjoy a chat, coffee and cake and it is helping me to get over being shy. I was hesitant at first but now I can’t recommend it enough and I really enjoy the extra bit of money each week.

  • I think it’s a great idea

  • I think to have a really successful party plan business, you need to be a confident person who can sell ice to an eskimo. Good luck with your new venture.

  • it is up to you, I wouldn’t do it because they usually cost you money to start up

  • they are a lot of work and at times you don’t make any money, you need a clientele who like to spend and spend regularl

  • I had a friend who started her own party plan business doing “portrait parties” for families. No money to a big corporation. Think outside the box – you don’t have to go with an established company

  • You still have to work very hard at getting these businesses to work. It’s not all fun and games as the companies make it look.
