|How many hours a week do you work at your business?|
|Less than 20 hours a week
|When do you work?|
|How much control do you have over your work schedule?|
|Mostly people want to have parties on the weekends. Sometimes you can have a party at someone’s job in a break room in an afternoon. But, mostly you will work evenings and weekends. This is good if you have a husband to watch your kid. But it is also kind of bad because you are working when he is at home. My husband did not like that.|
|Could I bring my child or pet to work?|
|Maybe, it depends on the circumstances|
|A lot of the work you are doing is not at the party. There is a lot of follow up to get more orders and organizing things. This is done at home. So no problem with childcare then.|

|How much did you have to invest to start this business?|
|The kit cost, I think $100. You pay a down payment of $39. But you get $350 worth of Tupperware. It wasn’t exactly what I would have picked, but they knew what they were doing. It with a good assortment of the kind of thing that it is good to be able to demonstrate. They had a deal when I signed up so that if I sold so much in the first two months, I didn’t have to pay for the rest of my kit. Just the $39.|
|After expenses, about how much money is your business earning?|
|You get 35% of everything you sell. You do have to buy any prizes or things you give away at the parties.|
|How long did it take to break even?|
|I earned back my $39 with the first party. And made a profit. I did not have to pay off the kit, because I sold enough so that they gave it to me for free.|
|Job Requirements: What skills does this job require?|
|You have to be very organized and a go-getter.
I had just moved to the area, so I didn’t have any friends to start with. I walked around my neighborhood knocking on doors to get some of my neighbors to have my first parties.
I cut up old catalogs and made posters to hang in the laundromat and on the bulletin board in some apartment buildings near me. That worked great! I got my first parties and booked new parties through each of them. Many people would have a party every six months. I’m transcribing
