Starting Your Own Business Has Never Been Simpler: Here’s Why

When I joined my first direct selling company 15+ years ago, it was all about home-parties and who you knew in your local area.

Don’t get me wrong… it was a great opportunity to build an income with the right company, and I did it for many years!

But because I’ve been involved in this industry for the last 15 years, I’ve had the opportunity to watch it evolve firsthand.

A LOT has changed. And I honestly believe the opportunity is better than it’s ever been.

Let me tell you just a few of the reasons why…


You might still associate direct selling with home-parties and product catalogs, but today’s most successful companies have shifted their focus to social selling.

Think about it – millions billions of people are spending countless hours on social media already anyway… but now there are opportunities to turn that mindless scrolling into an extra income!

In fact, studies show that more than 90% of people still trust a recommendation from a friend or family member above all else.

And chances are, you’re already making recommendations to your friends and family… you’re just not getting paid for it!

When was the last time you recommended a movie, restaurant, or brand to a friend? Maybe you tagged a business on Instagram, or posted a picture of your morning Starbucks…

That’s social selling!

The question is… do you want to keep doing it for free? Or do you want to turn your influence into an income?!


While every company is different, the best opportunities don’t force you to stock tons of inventory and hope that you sell it.

Instead, they’ve embraced the digital world we’re living in like It Works! has, and streamlined the entire shopping process.

With companies like ours, you don’t need to invest a bunch of money on inventory upfront or guess how much product you’ll need… you simply order as much as you want for yourself and dropship the products to your customers’ doorstep whenever you want, right from your phone.

It Works! even created its own app that allows distributors to send product samples to prospective customers without ever setting foot in a post office!

In a nutshell – it’s easier than ever to run a business without a huge investment or commitment upfront.


I know a lot of people stay away from this industry because they don’t consider themselves salespeople and/or they don’t want to feel like they’re “bugging” their friends and family.

Personally, I believe you naturally tell people about the products you love and it’s only “bugging” someone when you don’t respect their decisions or space, BUT the internet has made it possible to reach people beyond your personal network.

Quite frankly… technology has changed the game!

With texting, blogging, social media & more… you’re no longer limited to your physical location – you can reach people all around the world from your fingertips.

And even if you don’t have a huge network now, you can build one (and we can help teach you how!)


Technology has already changed the way we do business, but with the global pandemic still shifting how we work, people are looking for ways to make money from home more than ever before.

And if it’s not obvious already… this kind of business allows you to work from anywhere as long as you’ve got an internet connection!

That kind of flexibility removes so many barriers! Most businesses require a significant investment to get started, as well as a substantial monthly overhead to keep it going.

At It Works!, you can get started for $99 and we give you all the training and tools you need to start making money immediately.

If you’ve ever wondered how you can make some extra income from home (even if you don’t have a ton of extra free time), I can’t encourage you enough to take another look at this industry.

I’m not saying it’s the perfect opportunity for everyone, but I truly believe the opportunity to build your own business is the best it’s ever been if you find the right company.
