If you’ve ever considered starting a home-based business, you’ve no doubt wanted to start it part-time, because few people can afford to quit a full-time job and start a business from scratch with no customers and no income. You’ve probably asked yourself – “What home-based business opportunity offers a high probability of success, can be started on a shoe-string budget working part-time hours and ultimately yield me a full-time income stream?” More than likely, you’ve never found the answer to that question.
WorkatHomePro recently completed a study of 26 home-based business opportunities that are considered legitimate and proven. They concluded that one company stood head and tails over the rest as “America’s best home-based business opportunity” and based their conclusion on 15 different factors. That company is Watkins Incorporated of Wanona, Minnesota. Their study determined that Watkins, a 140-year old manufacturer of seasonings, extracts, flavorings, personal care, beauty, health, first aid, cleaning and miscellaneous home products offers a home-based business opportunity that is far and away superior to any work at home business opportunity they studied or have come across.
This in depth study of the 26 home-based business opportunities generally considered sound and legitimate analyzed 15 different factors their analysts considered essential. For example, they reviewed the length of time each company had been in business, the strength of their management teams, the quality and reputation of their products and services, their training systems and methods, their compensation plan for associates, dealers or distributors, etc.
Watkins was founded in 1868, and thus has been in business longer than any company I studied. The company is owned by Irwin Jacobs of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Mr. Jacobs is a world-renowned businessman and entrepreneur that understands people, the needs of consumers, the importance of quality and believes in taking care of all aspects of his business (i.e., manufacturing, marketing, sales, product quality, associate compensation, etc.).
Watkins has one of the most lucrative compensation models in the network marketing business. Starting in 1868 with one product, red liniment, the company now manufacturers 350 outstanding products for the home and consumer. The list of product categories is extensive, from personal care products to home cleaning products, vitamins and supplements, beauty products, cooking spices, flavorings and extracts, first aid products and more.
Testimonials from consumers that have used Watkins products for decades can be found on countless websites. If you meet a Watkins customer, you’ll usually find that they intend to be a Watkins user for life. Mr. J.R. Watkins, the company’s original founder, invented the trial-mark bottle (the use of product on a trial basis) and the first-ever money back guarantee. Now, 140 years later, the Watkins company still offers a money back guarantee on all its products, including its sales kit for new associates. No company in the network marketing business offers so many money back guarantees.
If you’re looking for a home-based business opportunity, one you can start part-time and build into a full-time business in 3 to 5 years, a home-based Watkins products business can be started on a budget that cost no more than dinner for two at a nice restaurant.. Thousands of Watkins associates have started their Watkins businesses as a part-time, spare income job, working no more than 10 hours per week or so. A significant number have used this same part-time formula to build six-figure incomes for themselves in 3 to 5 years. There are very few business opportunities available in America today that can take you from no income to six-figures in this time frame, working part-time.
Watkins impeccable reputation, along with its outstanding line of 350 different products that people can and do use every day in their homes make succeeding in Watkins easy and fun. Whether you’re a corporate executive, a school teacher or a stay-at-home mom, the Watkins business model has proven itself to be adaptable to people from all walks of life, regardless their level of experience or education.
Watkins stays in touch with the times, offering all associates an online website for taking orders and marketing Watkins online. No longer is the company “your parents Watkins” that sales products door-to-door. Instead, Watkins associates today use many successful business models and methods for selling Watkins, including e-commerce, GoodTastings party events, festival and trade show sales, mail order and catalog sales, fundraisers, etc. If you’re willing to commit yourself to working 7 to 10 hours per week in a home-based enterprise, you can build a full-time income with Watkins never working more than part-time hours.
