With technology and the ease of leveraging your mobile device and the internet, starting a home-based business has never been easier or more affordable. And if you love natural/organic products and you're already buying these products elsewhere, have you thought about starting an organic skin care business that is flexible enough to do from home?
That's how I started selling organic products because as my kids joke: "mom, you're obsessed with Wholefoods" which is true. When Wholefoods opened just a few minutes from my house, I was in heaven.
If you're familiar with Wholefoods, it's not exactly cheap to shop there so why has the company been able to do so well, year after year, even during the recession? It's not always the rock bottom prices that people care about although there's a market for bargain shopper but the people that love Wholefoods care about being, living, eating, using, and promoting green products.
So, I figured if I'm already shopping at Wholefoods, spending a big chunk of my money at Wholefoods, Sprouts, Trader Joe's and consuming organic, healthy products, why not do something about this organic passion of mine? I love buying my products at Wholefoods but it's not like I'm getting a 25% discount if I were to buy their skin care products.
With my organic home-based business, you can shop, share, and earn an income from sharing products you can believe in. Products that are good for people, animals, and planet. For people who sign up to sell organic/natural products, they might not be a serious business builder, but you'll find people who start using healthy products and see results from them, can't help but want to share with others.
In fact, co-founder of Wholefoods, John Mackey, has a new book: Conscious Capitalism. Here's a short description from Amazon.com ...
These “Conscious Capitalism” companies include Whole Foods Market, Southwest
Airlines, Costco, Google, Patagonia, The Container Store, UPS, and dozens of
others. We know them; we buy their products or use their services. Now it’s time
to better understand how these organizations use four specific tenets—higher
purpose, stakeholder integration, conscious leadership, and
conscious culture and management—to build strong businesses and help
advance capitalism further toward realizing its highest potential.
Sounds like win-win business philosophies to me. And let me just say my company is not only certified organic but embodies conscious capitalism that John Mackey describes in his book.
In my next post, I'll share my proven success tips on how I'm building an organic business online and how you can replicate what I'm doing with a few hours a day.
