The restaurants planned for The Market area will be just like the other restaurants within Spokane Arena are only open to ticketed guests of the events at the Arena during the times the doors are open for said events. My advice to someone looking into DS is to find something that you actually love and know that you could share with other people, not sell it to them, but share with them why you love it. I do fairs and events and I share with people how amazing these little hair clips are. I get excited about them and it shows. 90% of the women who try them on, end up buying them because they love them. So find something you LOVE and not something just to sell.

Example of what not to do: You may apply for a business license and get a UBI number. Then you apply online to register your LLC with the State. Then the Secretary of State issues a new UBI number. Now you’ve got to try and straighten matters out with the state and possibly the IRS. I talked with the Secretary of State’s office and the representative said that this can be a huge mess. If you DO get a UBI number first, contact the SOS office before filing incorporation papers. The same goes for changing business structure. It can be a costly lesson to change from a Corporation to an LLC.

Steeped is a fairly new (2012) company specializing in loose-leaf teas. Of many of the companies I’m writing about here, this is admittedly one of the few I’ve actually heard of prior to my research. I was invited to a Steeped tea party last month but thanks to debilitating morning sickness (yay) had to decline the invitation. It sounded fun though, a bunch of friends getting together to try flavors like Birthday Cake and Almond Chocolate Torte. The start-up kit is only about $150 but you are required to pay a monthly fee of near $13 to maintain your active consultant status.

As a teenager, Faith (Marissa Tomei) goes to a medium and gets the name of her future husband: Damon Bradley. When she grows up, she ends up engaged to a man with a different name but on the day of her wedding, she gets a call from a Damon Bradley (Robert Downey Jr.). She flies to Italy to see him and find out if he is, in fact, the man of her destiny. What she gets is a surprise of an entirely different kind.

Erzulie Freda embodies love and is the spirit of beauty, jewelry, dancing, luxury, and flowers. She represents the epitome of femininity and compassion. She is frequently invoked to help find a lover, or renew a love relationship. Erzulie Freda is considered a Rada Lwa and so her domain is water and she lives on the riverbanks. Her colors are white and pink. She wears three wedding bands for her three husbands: Damballa, the serpent Lwa, Agwe, the patron Lwa to fishermen, and Ogun Feray, the patron Lwa of iron and technology. Her symbols are a heart, a mirror, and a fan.

After reading through reviews written by former and current distributors and users of the products it’s clear that the products work-if only temporarily-and that selling for It Works requires an intense amount of motivation and work, without which you’ll surely fail. This is more like a Work-At-Home career choice than a stay-at-home mom hobby. There seems to be an opportunity for serious cash here, but there’s also opportunity to fail and lose money.
