How I Make Money From Home and How You Can Too!

Happy New Year!! With it being not only a new year, but a new decade people have some pretty major goals for themselves. A lot of people’s goals involve their finances. Maybe you are trying to become debt free, take your dream vacation, or build up that savings account. Many people are looking for legit way to work from home to help them achieve their financial goals. The way that I am able to work from home is because I am an Independent Beauty Guide with LimeLife by Alcone.

What is LimeLife by Alcone?

LimeLife is a network marketing company that sells professional cosmetics and all natural skincare. Alcone is a family owned business that was founded in 1952. It started as a small store in New York City, selling stage makeup to starlets. While doing so, Alcone got to know some to the top artists in theater and film and quickly became a staple in the professional cosmetics industry. They noticed that their clients, professional makeup artists, had peak seasons and low seasons. To try to help them maintain a steadier stream of income, Alcone started an informal referral system. Seeing how popular that referral system was, Alcone decided to give people a powerful opportunity to help others make massive impacts on their financial lives. They started LimeLife by Alcone- a direct sales company- and for the first time ever, these professional beauty products could be purchased by people without a cosmetologist license.

Decades after opening that little store in New York City, LimeLife by Alcone is still always learning and working tirelessly to source professional makeup and all-natural skincare that really works. While LimeLife has expanded across the globe in 10 different countries, family is still at the heart of the company.

How Does it Work?

Once you sign up to be a Beauty Guide with LimeLife by Alcone, you will get an email from corporate explaining a few things and you’ll also get an email from me. In my email I will send a packet of information. That information will give you a guideline on how to be successful in your business. While there is no “one size fits all” in sales, there are definitely some tips and tricks that help!

Once you sign up, in addition to the emails, I will add you to our private team Facebook group and team chat. In the chat we will answer any and every question you may have. You will never be helpless on my team. We are there to hold your hand with this opportunity as long as you need us to.

On the business side of things, once you sign up to be a Beauty Guide you can start selling immediately. You earn commission on every dollar sold, NO MINIMUMS. You also get access to your back office. We call this your “green room.” In your green room you can see how much you’ve sold, your recruits, how much your team has sold, commission amounts, orders, everything! Plus coming in 2020 we are launching our app for Beauty Guides! This app will help streamline things like following up with clients, meeting sales goals, and many other tools that will help you be successful. It’s really going to be a game changer!

We have a corporate Facebook group that our CEOs and other corporate staff talk to us directly at least once a week. There is also regular training from some of the best people in the industry. We get training from professional makeup artists with tips and tricks, to help with our taxes, and everything in between. If you’re worried that you don’t know about makeup, DONT! There are so many resources provided to help you!

Who can become a Beauty Guide?

Anyone 18 years and older can become a Beauty Guide. LimeLife has expanded into 10 countries so far! You can buy and sell products in those countries. Our first 10 countries are: United States, Canada, Great Britain, France, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Ireland, Spain, and Australia! Woot woot! You CAN have international teams!

How do you get paid?

At LimeLife, you get paid on the 7th of each month unless it fall on a weekend, and then you get paid the Friday before. As I said before, you get paid on every dollar you sell. No minimums, no catches. Commission is 20%-35% depending on how much you sell or your team sells. The more you sell, the more you make.

You also make commission on your team sales. When people join under your link, they become a part of your team and you earn money from their sales as well. In order to earn commission on your team sales, you must be “Active.” Active is a minimum amount of $300 in sales. This is to help prevent a situation where someone on the top of a team isn’t working their business and isn’t adding any leadership or support.

Here is a brief snapshot of the compensation plan.


When you first sign up to be a Beauty Guide with LimeLife by Alcone, there is a Fast Start Program to help you hit the ground running and help earn some extra incentives for getting your business started on the right foot.

It’s important to note that anyone who you recruit, if they hit their Fast Start Bonuses, you earn bonuses from that as well.

Every month, from the minute you begin, in addition to your Fast Start Program, you can earn points off of sales. 1 Point = $1 in Product Credit

To keep the sales field excited and on their toes, every month as a beauty guide, you can earn Free2BeMe points. You can use these points to buy ANYTHING from flights, to a new car seat for your baby, a leaf blower for your husband, a Disney vacation and beyond!

LimeLife also has mid-level executive bonuses once you hit the level of Lead Director, which is only 4 steps up the ladder! When you hit that promotion you start earning lifestyle bonuses. One of the great things about LimeLife’s compensation plan versus other companies is a lot of time their executive bonuses come in the form of a car. Cars are shinny and new but what is not great about receiving a car is if you don’t hit the same amount of team sales, or personal sales, or whatever got you to that point, then you are stuck with a car payment. You are the one stuck paying it, not them. That’s why I love a cash bonus so much! You can use it for a car payment, mortgage, debt, tuition, whatever you’d like!

Plus every year LimeLife offers an incentive trips. These trips are absolutely amazing!! They are always at the most stunning resorts! This is where we’ve been in years past…

Are there any fees?

Yes, there is a $9.99 per month website fee. As a blogger, I know how much websites can cost. This $9.99 takes care of you having a unique link that will direct people to your replicated LimeLife website. People can order there, just like they would any other online shopping website, it will be mailed directly to them, and you earn the commission! LimeLife’s website is always professional (just the like brand), its easy to navigate, and your clients will have no problems finding what they need and ordering it. Trust me, less than $10 a month is a small price to pay for a website that works. 😅

There is also a $75 annual fee. Most network marketing companies have an annual fee that is hundreds of dollars. It’s important that you read all of the fine print when you sign up with whatever company that you are representing. What is great about LimeLife is if you sell $600 per month for 10 months out of the year, they waive your annual fee! It’s part of the bonus points program.

What’s the catch?

There isn’t any! There are no contracts, you can quit anytime. There is also no inventory. LimeLife doesn’t believe in making money off of its sales field. You will NEVER be pressured to buy products and then have to try to resell them.

This is a legit way to make money from home. You can pay off those pesky student loans, go on your dream vacation and build community on top of it!
