Not sure if it will pan out to be worth my time and energy BUT I am going to start being a Home Interiors Consultant next week. I thank Jennifer of Where is Mommy's Prozac for the idea.
My hope is to make a few hundred extra dollars a month - enough to keep paying the maid and the gym membership to be exact.
I have found a local consultant who will sign me up in her organization - assuming this means she will get money from every sale I make too? :)
So come Monday I will have signed up for this officially and see how it goes in 2009 - My plan is to create a list of potential customers who are interested in hearing about weekly specials. I will also bring catalogs to work in case anyone is interested here. I don't plan to do a lot of heavy selling and unless someone begs I'm not doing demonstrations - only book parties.
Maybe it will be a flop because I don't want to put an immense amount of energy into it. But I need to make at least enough to pay back my initial investment which will be approx $200 with the starter kit and the annual website fee.
Wish me luck. Maybe my 2nd career will inspire me more than my first?
