Have you ever started your own business? Working for Avon or Tupperware or Amway and stuff like that counts.

I guess the closest I've ever come to starting my own business was by doing mystery shopping. I was an independent contractor. I was also a therapeutic massage therapist for awhile. I've never done anything like Avon or Tupperware, though.

I currently own my own business now. I sell used books etc. over the internet. I also once upon a time sold Tupperware. I was pretty good at it too, and did fairly well, and I enjoyed it, but it got in the way of my marriage, and it was also frustrating to have people cancel parties on me at the last moment.

I know a guy who is working with Avon and he earned a lot of money. Actually he just spent one or two years with hard work, then he just enjoy life because he got so many down lines to work for him. And he held a director position in my country. I think you must be very good at speaking in terms of sales. Sometimes, the opportunity is more real and tractable offline. So dear mylotters, we should keep an eye in the physical world too, maybe there is a big shot you can take. Good luck and happy mylotting!

I haven't start my own business and haven't work for Avon or Tupperware. I used to buy some stuffs from Avon before and someone ask me if I want to sell some Avon products and I said no. I think its not easy to find a good customer and I don't have experience.

I cant imagine starting new business now because I am still studying and also working somewhere to spend my free time.

On my own? not yet. But we have a family business which my parents including me, runs it. It's been our business since I was you and it's very stable now eventhough there's a global financial crisis. Our business by the way is hog dealing. We deliver hogs into public markets in some cities here in Manila..
