    Becoming a Virgin Vie rep - any views? 30th Nov 06 at 10:07 AM
    Hi everyone its been a while since I posted on here.

    I am thinking about signing up as a Virgin Vie cosmetics rep and wondered what experiences people have of working for this company?

    I just want to make a little bit of extra cash around being a full time mum. It would be nice not to have to rely on Housing Benefit (currently around £200 a month).

    I am very nervous about starting it as it has to be run as your own business and also you have to make £500 of sales in the first 2 months. I worry that I don't have enough friends to get the sales.

    They have an offer at the moment:

    Be an Xmas consultant - buy the Xmas kit for £60 + £25 public liability insurance
    Make £500 of sales in first 2 months or have to pay them £100 to keep the kit.
    You then get the opportunity to become a full consultant and buy the full kit for £60 (normally £120)
    Both of these kits are worth £300 each if sold at full retail price.

    I had a VV party in the summer as a hostess and only made £80 worth of sales.

    What do you think? Is it worth it?
