This year I have started my own home based business with Epicure. The response from the people around me has been overwhelmingly positive.
In the few short weeks I have joined I have hosted several parties and earned a lot of benefits. While the time spent in organizing, cleaning, and learning any business put off people, real benefits are only reaped after hard work.
So whatever home based business suits your lifestyle I would encourage anyone to try. If Epicure is what suits you I do have a coupon towards making the initial investment a little more affordable.
