I was recently asked how much money I make per party. After doing some figuring I make on average $135.00 per party or $33.00 per hour after expenses.
Let’s take an in depth look.
My average party sales are about $1,500, which is slightly higher than the company average but I feel like it accurately represents what experienced consultants are doing.
Consultants earn 10% commission off of party sales. So I earn $150.00 in commission.
At each party I figure that I spend about $15.00 in samples, literature, travel and other expenses.
Making my take home $135.00 per party or $33.00 per hour. I am pretty happy with that.
*Thrive Life offers customers the Q program. This is a way for customers to build their food storage over time while staying with in a budget. Consultants get paid commission for each Q purchase a customer makes, creating residual income for the consultant. I did not factor the residual income into that number.
**Thrive Life is a MLM company and I also get paid off of the efforts of my down line. I did not factor any of my team sales into that number.
A personal note, After I had been a consultant for 18 months I was making more money each month then I made when I was teaching school full time, which I think is pretty amazing for a stay at home mom who is working part time. I'm not a superstar salesman but I work hard.
