So I am trying to decide whether or not to really dive in with this little business venture, I would only have to put $50 in to it to start with, it is selling a, I can't really call it a supplement because it is actually fruits and vegetables in a capsule basically. I have been taking it for months now and so has my son and I have the opportunity to sell it but I am just not sure whether or not it is worth my time or money!

What are your opinions?

I have a sideline business, and it's taken alot of money for advertising, more $$ for increasing inventory and products, and a quite a bit more time than I expected. And I've had, like, 4 customers total. So....right now it is not quite worth it, but hopefully the new year will turn some profit!

Well I don't have to carry any inventory and unline Avon I do not have to sign people up, they can either buy it from me or once I hook them to the company they themselves order through the company when needed and pay the company, I don't have to do anything after that. I can carry the item if I would like and sell it if someone wants to try it but I don't have to. So basically I don't really have to put anything in to it, that is why it sounds so appealing. Though I am not sure what the interest would be in it and whether it is worth a bunch of effort KWIM?

hmm, well, it doesn't sound like you have too much to lose. I'd probably just do it. There is that small chance that the venture will just take off, and you can either be part of it, or wishing you had been part of it, you know? And if it fails, or you find you hate doing it, the initial investment probably won't break the bank.
