When I started PRIIA Cosmetics, it was (and still is) my goal to help wowen by creating and offering a line of healthy, natural and artisan-quality cosmetics to the masses. I also opened the opportunity for business owners and licensed professionals to start their own mineral makeup businesses by purchasing wholesale and using either the PRIIA branded name or going the route of private label.
Recently, I've been contacted by a few customers who have asked if there were any business opportunities for people who aren't licensed professionals or business owners. Basically, they wanted to know if there were any PRIIA "consultant" positions available; in otherwords, direct sales. In my mind, I immediately recoiled. Why? Well, in a former life, I was involved with many different companies selling anything from candles, to cosmetics, to cleaning products, etc. I remembered the feelings of having to force myself to just walk up to strangers at the mall or a "home party", introduce myself and get them to listen to my sales pitch. I absolutely DREADED that. My stomach would cringe, my palms would sweat and my mouth would get dry. However, I needed to make the sale because I needed to make money. So, I mustered up the courage to open my mouth. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I wasn't successful with these companies; I was. I made good money, earned some free trips but I always longed for something better. I didn't want to be out doing "parties" and lugging stuff around in my trunk. I didn't want to have to buy inventory, process orders, make deliveries or worry if a "party" would cancel on me. Worse yet, I didn't want to beg someone to host a party for me. The idea was that I was supposed to be doing a home-based business, yet I was constantly out delivering products, going to meetings, etc. I wasn't really home much at all. I longed for a business opportunity that I could truly work from home and around my schedule but I never really found it.
Well, fast forward many years- I'm now a licensed esthetician and have my own salon as well as natural cosmetics business (PRIIA). I don't work from home per se, but I do call the shots and I'm OK with that. However, I KNOW that there are women out there who are looking for an opportunity like I was many moons ago. Maybe some of them just want to make a little extra money each month and maybe some want to quit their jobs and be at home full-time with their children. I'm considering creating an opportunity with my company, PRIIA Cosmetics, which will offer just that. If I do, it will NOT be a typical direct sales party plan or any type of multi-level pyramid gig. There won't be any parties to plan, inventory to buy, orders to process or products to deliver. It will be a true opportunity to work from home at one's own pace and around one's personal schedule. The investment to get started will be either be no investment, a very low investment or a choice of both...I haven't decided yet. I'm still mulling over the entire scenario.
I have to tell you, I am soooooooo sickened by all of the work-from-home scams that are out there as well. There are many unscrupulous individuals & companies out there today who are preying upon those who are truly looking for something better in their lives. All you have to do is google 'work from home' and you'll get a zillion searches to come up; most of which are scams. But, people are desperate today and it's easy to fall victim to some slick sales page that promises you're going to make $1000+ per day by just clicking a button. It doesn't work that way ladies- believe me, I know. The scammers and theives are the only ones making that kind of money because you've opened up your bank accounts to them in the hopes of making a better life for you and your family. True homebased businesses do require you to WORK. However, it's my goal to create an opportunity that allows you to work SMARTER not harder.
If you've tried PRIIA, you already know that it's a great product. Some of you have sent beautiful testimonials after using the line and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your sincere and kind words. Many of you have recommended PRIIA to your family and friends- and again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Word-of-mouth is the best form of advertising I could ever hope for. I believe now is the time to start rewarding you personally and financially for your referrals and also rewarding those clients who buy PRIIA's products based upon your recommendations.
Here's what I need to know from YOU: Is there any interest at all from you about the above proposed business opportunity? I want hear your thoughts, ideas and opinions. What do you think??? Please leave a comment for me. Thank you!
