Hello, I live in Norfolk, Virginia and due to some circumstances that happened I really need to make some part time money but want to be independent and work from home. I tried jewelry for this one company but the start up kit cost me a fortune and it really was not received very well because the prices of the products were so high.

My true passion is pets, I love animals. I have wanted to learn to make pet blankets but I have never done any type of sewing and it would take me awhile to catch on to this before I could even make any money and the costs of the machine and products to try out would be expensive.

I wonder if there are any wholesale companies that I could possible rep for?

Any ideas?

I am open to some ideas about some good businesses that I can do at home that does not cost an arm and a leg to start up. I realize the old saying you have to spend money to make money, but you have to have the money to be able to spend it.

That is rough for someone in my situation. Yes, I know some companies allow you to earn their kit but I would prefer not to have the pressure of having to know that I have a period of time to do something or else.

I am willing to learn and work hard and have had some pretty bad experiences with some past direct sales companies and the training I received, or should I say did not receive. It seems that everyone is always so eager to email you and phone you till they get you signed up and then they disappear. Not all people are like that I am sure but the ones I have had experiences with were.

Please email me privately as I do not check my messages on this board that often. :lol:

Animals are my passion too and I've looked into many different things. I currently have a small pet sitting business that I love. Have you thought about doing that? You can get an e-book at or try Patti Moran's book called "Pet Sitting for Profit". There's also a great message board at Yahoo at ... d=42647479.

Good luck in your search.

If you love animals I know there are a few DS companies that you can rep for that sell animal products. I don't know their names off the top of my head but I think they are either free to join or VERY low-cost.

You could always be a Stuff A Friend rep and sell unstuffed animal kits. Right now it is completely free to join though on 3/10 it will cost $35 for a kit.

Good luck finding something!
