  1. Any nurses involved with MLM and have you had any success? For those with their own companies, how do you market your product/service? Your contribution is greatly appreciated.

    Hi, Did you received any information? It looks like no one posted a response.
    I just wanted to let you know there are some nurses that work with M.D.'s in their business. They provide a service with their products.The majority of people shy away from MLM due to a lack of knowledge. Most of the products offered aren't marketed a great deal in mainstream,so direct selling becomes a solutuion. If you'd like more information, I can give you detailed info. Contact me @ bcollins185@hotmail.com . Good Luck!

    I work with a company that dovetails nicely with my nursing expertise. For me, this is much more about helping provide preventative and restorative health care than it is about driving sales.

    Hi everyone, I have an idea for a business and I have searched the web and have been unable to locate anyone doing it.

    After witnessing all of the problems in long term care I am thinking of contracting with patients families on a one on one basis to check on their loved ones in facilities when they are unable to be there (living out of state, on vacation, ect.). Not a sitter but more medically comprehensive visit.

    Is any one out there doing this?

    I just started a business and will be providing similar services [in-home (or in-facility) care and case management to those in need]. I will also be offering consulting services. I'm certain that there are more people out there doing this, but I don't think they're marketing themselves well enough because I've also been unable to find anyone. I hope to have my website finished within the next 2-3 weeks

    Good luck to you!

    Here's a list of Senior Services franchises

    You could call some of the franchises and see if any offer this service, but your concept could be unique

    I have worked in network marketing since 2010. I was able to retire from nursing in 2014.
    It is not an easy business but I found a company that blended with my belief as a nurse and
    now able to help people in another way. Still serving people. I enjoy the benefits of raising up
    on my terms and not someone's evaluation of my performance

    yes i am involved in MLM and with a group of nurses in my home country too we decided to look for an MLM that dovetailed our profession while some of us practice some are doing it full time and its awesome too and we are looking forward to meeting nurses outside our country who are ready to do the same. we do it professionally so its different from what others do. if there anyone in the house who is into MLM or would like to start MLM lets have what we call nurses connect
    exchange ideas and experience too
    cheers hope someone would
