I’m looking into doing something like an at home party plan or something that can be run via a website as I’m not a well person it worries me that I’d be having to cancel parties at the last minute so was wanting something that can run itself or with minimal help from hubby if I become ill. I’m looking for something to keep me active and help bring a little more cashflow into the household

  • You may want to look into dropshipping. However you need to so a lot of research first, but once set up it is pretty automatic. Customers buy through you on a website at the price of your choice, you put in the order with the supplier and they do the rest. It will look like the product comes from you, but you do not have to hold any stock yourself. It is a lot more flexible than party plans as you have control of the price and profit margins.
    Party plans are actually well camouflaged pyramid schemes. They work on initially getting you to convince your family and friends to purchase non-essentials so that you can earn a very small percentage of the sale price (some will even get you to convince others to also be a host so that you boost your commission). It is easy, though, and that is why the scheme works so well and attracts many people. But technically it is illegal, especially those that have a start up fee.

  • I’ve been doing Body shop at home for about 6 weeks. You can run online parties on Facebook. I do a combination of online and at home parties.

  • I’ve seen a number of FB Tupperware sales recently. Perhaps you could look into this established business to see if there is flexibility in this area.

  • Any business will take time and the rewards vary depending on the amount of time committed to the business. Online party plans take time too. Good Luck!

  • It really does depend on what your are interested in? Choose something you enjoy.

  • I would recommend Avon. A friend of mine is a stay at home mum to 6 children and started it for something ‘non-mum’ related to do. The sign up is free, you can do it nearly all from home/online by setting up a facebook group and putting up the specials, start by getting family and friends to buy and share your page. You can make money by selling more than $100 each campaign, signing others up etc. There are rewards such as free product as soon as you join to holidays and cars.
