Personally, I enjoy attending and hosting home parties, but I know many people do not. If you do not enjoy them, please tell me what it is you dislike about them and if you do enjoy them, what do you like the most about them? My favorite parties are Pampered Chef because they tend to be more educational thatn typical parties.

I like tupperware parties when I can afford it!

Thank you for responding. I enjoy Tupperware's products as well. I used to sell Tupperware several years ago and had some success at it. I like that they have evolved into so much more than just plastic bowls and that they have a lifetime warranty.

I used to be a Princess House Lifestyle Consultant. So I have done all three things, attended, hosted, and a consultant. So if were to choose, I would say either attending or hosting. I found out from being a consultant that I am not a very good sales person. So when my kids finally start school and I go back to work it definitly won't be a sales person job. LOL! As far as which company I like the best. It would have to be Princess House because that is the only one I ever remember going to or hosting.

I used to be a consultant with Princess House too, but it did not work out for me. I discovered since then that it was not that I could not sell, it was just that I did not havethe product for ME. I think direct sales are great, but you have to find the right company for YOU, and that may be a different company for every person.

Hi. The most recent home party that I attended was for party lite. They sell scented candles and candlholders etc. The party was okay. The products are nice, but I find that as with most home parties they are overpriced. I used to enjoy home parties much more than I do know. I think the novelty has worn off for me and as I've grown older I've become more cynical and possibly a bit more reclusive. I used to attend a lot of Tupperware parties and I even tried selling it for a while. The sales were pretty good but I was also working full time at another job, at the time and my daughter was 8 months old. It was too much to do both. The plan was to quite my day job and do only Tupperware, but I didn't feel confident in the amount of money that I was making to quit my day job. Ironically, I ended up quitting that job anyways a short time later and didn't go back to tupperware. A while later I tried selling discovery toys. That was more difficult for me to sell than Tupperware was. I enjoyed the concept of the company, but I was not able to earn a living at it. I have attended home parties for "princess house" as well. I bought a few products and hosted a party but that was the extent of that. I had a friend who sold Pampered Chef but I never attended or hosted a party. The products looked good but I never bought any.

Thank you for responding. I really like Partylite products too. I do agree that many of the products at home shows are more expensive than I like, but I also think you usually get a much better quality product than you buy at the store. As for selling products, I think it is difficult to find the right company, but that if you find the right company for YOU (which may be a different one for someone else) you can make money doing it. As for replacing a full-time income, it would take a lot more time than I have to devote to it (I give about 10 hours a week), but I have seen people do it. Thank you again for responding.
