A little over two years ago while searching for organic and eco friendly cosmetics, I stumbled upon a brand named Miessence. They claim their organic products are even food grade! I was excited about this company and the various products they offered. At the same time I got sad because it didn’t seem like an easy feat to get my hands on the products here in Norway. Miessence is based in Australia and is an MLM (Multi-level Marketing) type business… you know… like Mary-Kay, do-Terra, Forever Living, Tupperware. Couldn’t find any Miessence reps in Norway so that meant I would have to order through their site… And with Norway’s not-so-generous limit (350nok including shipping) before getting hit with ridiculous import taxes, I’ve yet, to this day, tried any Miessence products.
These days, I’m trying to figure out a way to earn an extra income while also having some flexibility with my time to spend with Rimas. That makes me wonder if I should try out the world of home based businesses. What does it actually take to succeed in this world? I read up on Miessence as a company and googled reviews and so far it seems like quite a legit company with quality products. But without trying out the products myself, I suppose it would be quite difficult to just start “selling” them right off the bat.
Have you been or are you in a MLM type business? Does it work for you? How long did it take for it to become a lucrative business for you? What challenges did you face?
