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!

15 Reasons Why You Should be a Beauty Guide

Becoming a Beauty Guide was by far one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself and my family. One day I’ll do a post on why I joined LimeLife, and the story behind it but for now, I want to concentrate on why YOU should become a beauty guide.


As a beauty guide you earn 20%-35% on all products that you sell. There is no minimum to sell in order to earn commission. You earn 20% off your first dollar sold. The more you sell, the more you earn. Also, the more your team sells, the more your personal commission goes up also! In addition to your commission, you also earn points, aka in store credit, for your sales. I also need to note, at LimeLife we earn off of RETAIL sales, NOT wholesale!

Fast Start Bonuses:

LimeLife has a tiered fast start program. If you are not familiar with that, it is a series of bonuses that you can hit your first 3 months in the company. It helps you get your business off to a fast and exciting start! I can help you hit the ground running to make sure you hit your fast starts!

Plus you earn bonuses when people who join your team earn them!

Mid-Level Lifestyle Bonuses:

There is a tiered lifestyle/car bonus in the middle of the compensation plan! You don’t even have to be the very tip top of the company to earn them! What is so great about LimeLife’s lifestyle bonus is that it is a cash bonus. In a lot of direct sales companies, you’ll earn a “free car” but if your team doesn’t sell as much the next month, you’re roped into paying the car payment because you didn’t earn it again. At LimeLife, you earn the bonus, if you don’t the next month you aren’t penalized in any way. The bonuses go as followed Lead Director earns an additional $500 per month, Star Director earns an additional $750 per month, and Senior Direct earns an additional $1000 a month, all in addition to their regular commission checks! There is a whole other tier of bonuses to hit after that!

Hostess Rewards:

When people host LimeLife parties, they are able to earn points based off of how much money is brought in from their party. Again, 1 point = $1 in store credit. At LimeLife, Beauty Guides can host their own party, in person or online and earn points that way! Play your cards right and you’ll never have to buy your own products!

Monthly Sales Incentives:

Every month, LimeLife offers different sales incentives. These incentives are very attainable and make being a part of this company that much more fun! Every month they offer 3-4 incentives. I created this mashup graphic just so you can see how awesome the incentives are! For example, in July the theme is parties and we can earn: popsicle molds, ice bucket, speaker, and Riki mirror. That mirror is a $194 value!! All products are LimeLife branded.

Paid Vacation Month:

Say what?! It’s true! LimeLife will give you one month a year paid vacation!

No Inventory:

There is no minimum you must sell to maintain being a Beauty Guide, and LimeLife also does not want their Beauty Guides holding inventory. LimeLife knows that one of the direct sales traps that people fall into is being their products initially and then trying to sell it to their clients. That is the quickest and easiest way for someone in the network marketing industry to lose money. We don’t want you to get caught in that trap!

All Inclusive Incentive Trips:

Every year, LimeLife offers an all inclusive incentive trip to a gorgeous destination! You earn your trip by earning points along the way. In 2018 the incentive trip was to Aruba, in 2019 the incentive trip was to Costa Rica, and in 2020 we can chose between Cabo San Lucas and Spain! Eek!!

Annual Training Retreats:

When you hit the executive level (the bonuses mentioned above) you are able to go to the annual executive training retreats. These retreats are also in the most gorgeous locations! Napa Valley, Hilton Head Island, the list goes on.

Professional Cosmetics:

LimeLife has 15 different manufactures. Why? Because we want the best of the best. So we took a little from that company, and a little from this company, until we built the best quality line of products available. LimeLife is the only networking marketing company to be invited to the IMATS!

All Natural Effective Skincare:

LimeLife’s skincare is all natural, leaping bunny certified, vegan, and effective! Not only is it effective, its affordable. Less than $100 for a whole skincare routine!

Psst! The bar of soap that cleared up this sweet lady’s face, is only $14!!!

Transparent CEO and corporate staff that works for YOU:

Michele Gay and her niece, Madison Mallardi are the Co-Founders and Co-CEO of LimeLife by Alcone. They have the Beauty Guides at heart with every decision made. Every Monday, someone from corporate (often times Michele) jumps on our company Facebook group and talks to us live about what is going on with the company that week. It’s so great knowing what is going on behind the scenes. The Beauty Guides are never out of the loop, no matter their ranking!


You’ll never have to worry about not being equipped for your business at LimeLife. Corporate has trainings weekly, and if you join my team, we have trainings daily. There is so much trainings, you couldn’t possibly keep up. You get to pick and chose and watch the trainings that YOU need.


Being a Beauty Guide with LimeLife offers lots of discounts! You are able to get wholesale prices on your LimeLife products. You are also about to get 15% off at our parent company, the makeup industry legend, Alcone. You are also able to get discounted tickets to different makeup shows around the country!


LimeLife’s motto is collaboration, not competition. We don’t have a scarcity mindset at LimeLife we know that everyone can win! When you become a beauty guide, you also become part of an amazing community that lifts you up every step of the way!
