My name is Myra Roldan, I`m new to startup nation although I have been reading posts for over a year in the forums. Last year, I had the unique opportunity to be on Oprah as a finalist in the search for the next big idea. I run a mineral makeup business from my home (http://www.beautifuldiva.com). I began just formulating and selling wholesale to businesses. After Oprah, the one product I hadn`t developed had me catch a lot of positive and negative feedback. I ended up selling my rights and the product is doing great on HSN.
I had spent some time trying to figure out which direction to lead my business as I seemed to hit a slump. In December 2007 I decided I was going to go retail but would adopt a direct selling model. What I came up with was a great opportunity, I`ve been told. I`m trying to encourage other women to start home businesses. I started offering FREE registration to become an Independent Sales Representative with no kits to purchase or inventory to stock. I also offer a free webpage to all Independent Sale Representatives and 30% commission on web generated orders and now through the end of the month of March 2008, 50% discount on all personal orders. People ask me how can I offer free registration and webpages - I see it as my cost of advertising.
I had already toyed with the concept in 2006 so a lot of the upfront work was done, I just had to tweak it and follow the KISS model (Keep It Simple Sister). I opened up representative registration in February and launched the retail site March 1st. We have had a great response to the opportunity and I`m hoping to grow.
