How to Make Money Selling Custom Clothing for Women

How to Make Money Selling Custom Clothing for WomenLiz Hosteler is the Founder and President of the direct selling company, Ellie Kai. Liz personally manages the company’s manufacturing and sourcing platform, while traveling the world for design inspiration. Here’s how her business journey started and how you can earn money selling made-to-order clothing for women.

Tell us a little bit about your direct sales company, Ellie Kai, and how it got started.

Living in Hong Kong, I would often have my clothes tailor-made. I would simply sketch a few ideas and draw from my years of buying beautiful clothes to come up with a shortlist of go-to pieces that I could have made for me, at an affordable price. When I returned home to the US with a suitcase of clothes that fit me perfectly, my friends and family were in awe. This was the real motivational turning point. The simple concept of choosing a perfectly fitted dress or top and having it made in the exact fabric you wanted made so much sense to everyone, and a business idea started to percolate from these conversations.

I began working on a business plan and realized there was a great opportunity to take these two worlds, manufacturing and direct selling to a captive audience, and bring them together.

Do you have any previous experience in sales or the direct selling industry? 

I did not have previous experience in the direct selling industry before I started Ellie Kai. I was previously in a very different sales role when I represented professional athletes for an international sports marketing agency. (more…)

Chloe + Isabel – Home-Based Business Opportunity for Jewelry Lovers

Chloe + Isabel - Home-Based Business Opportunity for Jewelry LoversBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Is the direct sales model appealing to you? But you’re not keen on having to recruit others into the business? Well, here’s an opportunity that you’ll want to check out.

Chloe + Isabel is a direct sales company that sells jewelry, embellished hair accessories, and beauty products. The company was founded in 2011 by Chantel Waterbury, a 15-year veteran of jewelry design and merchandising for major retail brands like Cartier, Tiffany, and Ippolita.

The jewelry line itself is ENORMOUS and consists of highly-stylized pieces that contain semi-precious stones and metals. In fact, their spring catalog has over 160 pages dedicated to their product line. I was able to check out some of the line myself; not only is the jewelry stylish and fun, but each piece has signature branded closures, and many items are convertible so that they can be worn in many different ways. Chloe + Isabel launches new jewelry collections each spring and fall, along with smaller capsule collections that come out later in the season.

How Much Can You Earn as a Merchandiser?

The cost to become a Merchandiser (direct sales consultant) for Chloe + Isabel is $175.00. With your Chloe + Isabel business kit, you’ll receive $700 in jewelry, order forms, catalogs, display materials, online training, marketing tools, and a personalized website. And this is really cool – there are no recurring fees for your website, they are provided by Chloe + Isabel for free. (more…)

The Home Party Plan is All About the Show Experience

Home Party Plan Is All About The Show ExperienceBy Deb Bixler

Some say the party plan business model is dying, that virtual businesses are the wave of the future. But I disagree, this business model is all about the experience!

Keep that in mind and you will realize that this type of business will go on forever.

Think About This Scenario.

Your friend invites you to a home shopping party. You don’t feel like going because you have so many things on your to-do list. But your friend was excited and said she really wanted you to be there, so you go.

You walk in the door, and you’re greeted by your friend and the consultant, although she doesn’t call herself that. Your friend introduces the consultant as her friend, Jenny. Jenny asks if she can take your coat and get you something to drink.

She comes back with your drink and says, “So how was your day?” You talk for a few minutes and then she asks, “How do you know Sue (the hostess)?” You talk a bit more and then some other guests arrive. You think to yourself, wow, she’s nice!

The atmosphere is fun and truthfully not what you expected. You see Mexican munchies, colorful decorations, and someone is even wearing a sombrero.

That’s right; the invitation did say Mexican Fiesta Party! This isn’t one of THOSE old fashioned home shopping parties – this is a FUN night out. Everyone is laughing and chatting, and you are beginning to feel glad you came; this isn’t like the home parties you’ve attended in the past. (more…)

Profitable Ways to Make Money From Home

By Kimi ClarkProfitable Ways to Make Money From Home

Making money from home is something that many women these days are looking to do. Let’s face it, when you take into account the cost of childcare, gas, work clothing, lunches and more, depending on the type of work you do, sometimes staying home can save you money!

But are there actually profitable ways to make money from home?

Well, I’m happy to say that thanks to the internet, I can say with 100 percent certainty, YES!

Gone is the day of stuffing envelopes (although you want to definitely be on the lookout for potential scams). We’re in a new era where women can absolutely stay home with their children while also bringing in a decent income … and in some cases, pretty substantial!


Probably my favorite way to make money from home. Although, I will say it’s definitely not the easiest, mostly because of the time it takes to build traction (and by traction, I mean traffic) and to be able to actually produce income. (If you want to start a profitable blog of your own, we can help you do that here!)

If you’re looking for proof that you can make money blogging, I’d like to introduce you to Becky Mansfield and Paula Rollo. Becky runs Your Modern Family and Paula runs Beauty Through Imperfection. (more…)

How to Make Money and Empower Women With Handbags

How to Make Money and Empower Women With HandbagsBy Holly Reisem Hanna

This past week I had the pleasure of checking out the ClaudiaG home business opportunity. The ClaudiaG Collection consists of leather handbags, chic jewelry and accessories – so if you love fashion you’ll want to check this out.

In fact, I took the Luminous Tote on my Cancun trip and I received so many compliments on it. It’s a great size for a beach bag or every day use. You could even use it as a laptop bag – it’s so versatile.

So tell you a little bit more about this home business opportunity we have ClaudiaG’s founder, Claudia Gutierrez.

Hi, I’m Claudia. I’m originally from Colombia and have lived in Houston, Texas, for over 15 years. Upon completing my studies in Business Administration at St. Thomas University, I got my MBA in 2004 and accepted a position with JP Morgan Chase, starting a successful career in banking.

I was always curious about activities that included design and craftsmanship. Growing up in a region of the Colombian Caribbean infused with the natural beauty of the sea and its tropical climate and inspired by the creative process of the artisans and the richness of the colors and materials, I naturally evolved to handbag and accessory design.

I began selling to women around me, and based on their fantastic reaction I soon realized I could offer the same opportunity to others as a way of gaining financial independence without sacrificing the responsibilities and joys of family life and community involvement. (more…)
