I only started selling them middle of February but they just seem to sell themselves.

I sell toys for a very small company at the moment but growing everyday!

I choose whether I want to sell straight from catalogues, do fetes/fairs or party plan etc, I have chosen to do everything I can to maximise my earnings.

I work on commission only, based on total sales of order, there are varied levels of commission dependant on order totals.

Not sure if I can do this but check our range out at www.tishtashtoys.com and I think you will see why I am so enthusiastic about my job!!

I hope your sisters shop works for her, she has done extremely well to have acheived so much and not even 18 yet!

You sound like you also have a successful life with 11 houses in your portfolio!

I have to admit my life so far has been children orientated and now I'm trying to get my life up and running, now the littliest is going to start school in Sept I need something to fill my time.

sorry carols and littlelady i misread the posts and thought yours were both from carol Embarassed

carols - wish you loads of success with things, i remember my enthusiasm with usborne when i first started too and i don't think its any less now, if you find a product you love then corny as it sounds its not like working at all. Smile I actually think it has managed to keep me sane whilst i'm a sahm and means we have extra pennys for days out Very happy

littlelady - 11 houses wow! bet that keeps you busy. My husband wants to get into buying and doing houses up but i'm a bit nervous...well a bit of a coward when it comes to more debt.

depends how you go about it Gemma, if you buy to sell then you really have to look for bargains, we buy and rent them out to people so usualy bring in around £1500+ from each house and each mortgage is about £500, we only make a small profit but we live cosy and have no worrys, its such a change from being a kid, we was brought up on benefits because my dad stole my mums life savings, long story lol, but anyway, think before you jump into things its hard work (i know because i do all the DIY lol) well worth it though Smile
