Towards Freedom

In Uncategorized on October 27, 2009 at 6:00 pm

I’ve studied economics for more than two decades, and the best system I’ve ever seen for intellectual distribution is the   business—also known as one-toone marketing, network marketing, referral marketing or relationship marketing. This home-based business takes intellectual distribution to its pinnacle—creating wealth by helping others.

I had THE best night last night. It started off with cleaning the house, which wasn’t so great, but ended with a GREAT Arbonne party…I mean GREAT!

Oh, and I also watched part of Running In Heels, which is now added to my “Favorite Show” list (The Mentalist, Private Practice, Grey’s Anatomy, Castle, Project Runway, ANTM…How I find the time is beyond me!).

But back to the Arbonne Party.

I had a Spa Night with a girl and told her that if she brought a friend or two, I would give her a free Arbonne item. I got nervous when they hadn’t showed up on time, thinking that they weren’t coming at all, but they arrived and the party started. She had brought one friend and received the Sea Salt Hand Scrub, which is an AMAZING product (but what Arbonne products aren’t? :)).

I started off by giving the girls their facial. A face scrub got things going and then a rich mask. We got our tea ready and headed to the living room where I had soft music playing. The girls applied the foot treatment, then sat back as I gave them a hand scrub and massage. With the candles flickering and the music playing in the background, they were almost napping.

By the time they were ready to leave, the girls had ordered almost $400 of product each! Within two hours I had made $200. Talk about a sweet job! I love pampering people and helping them feel relaxed and I earned quite a bit of money doing it, what better job could a girl have?

I have another party tonight and I’m hoping there will be a few girls there to give the spa treatment too. Then on Saturday I have a Tea and Cupcake Party happening at my house for a bunch of friends. I’m going to have my Arbonne products displayed and we’re all going to have a facial. It’s going to be FUN!

Business Techniques #3

In Uncategorized on August 9, 2008 at 3:00 pm

It’s so interesting to see how different sellers manage their profits! Everyone that I’ve talked to so far has a different technique and I’m learning a lot from their stories.

The next successful Etsy artist I chatted with was Kitty Cross Bones, you might remember her from her “Quit Your Day Job” article in the Storque…yeah. Lucky bum, hey? Here’s how this girly answered my question.

Q: What is your formula for your earnings? How do you work out how much to put back into the business and how much to save?

A: My earnings would be Sales – fees= net income – supplies = profit. I only put back into the biz when I run out of supplies so anything after that would be saved. I actually don’t have an exact formula as in depth as the other sellers on your blog. I don’t charge for my design or setup fees. Mainly the product would be calculated for parts+labor. Sometimes I work about 18hr days in the studio.

When I first started out selling, I was actually putting my personal savings into it from my day job (which I recently quit last year due to my Etsy success) I was in the hole, so to say, before biz started to pick up.

You asked how do I know how much money to spend on the biz and how much to save? So when I run out of supplies I will reorder them. I buy in bulk so the price is low and whatever is leftover after spending from supplies I put that into my savings account and then pay my credit card bills with it…

 

There’s so many different ways to manage your money! And it must be successful, Kitty’s quit her day job…and all the other successful Etsy Artists I’ve interviewed are super successfull too!

This series is really giving me food for thought. How should I manage my finances? What theory works best with my needs and wants? It’s a hard call, since I’m still just getting started, and it’s so great to have all this advice from sellers who have made it!

They keep coming…
