A Love Of Coffee

Wholesaling

I get asked a lot of questions about wholesaling: the pros and cons, the why’s, where’s, and how-to’s, etc. I used to wholesale, so I’m hoping that what I learned from doing so will benefit others who have the desire to do the same. If you’re just in the planning stages at this point, then you’ll want to gather as much information as possible that will help you to begin. The most basic questions I hear regarding starting to wholesale include the following.

Should I have minimums, and if so, what should they be?
How should I set my prices?
What kind of “Tax ID” will my customers need to provide?
How do I know my customer’s ID/documentation is valid?

Minimums
Most wholesalers have minimum order requirements; some require product minimums, some total order amount minimums, and many require both. I required both types of minimums. I kept my total order minimum low ($50), so that I made my products attainable to small business owners like myself, who could not usually afford high minimums. But I required the product minimums to help deter folks from buying my products for personal use, rather than for resale. And also, since many of my homemade products are scented, it was a real pain to have to make a room spray in 10 different scents, for example, than to just make 4 in one scent. It was just far easier to manage with product minimums. So my product minimums ranged from 2-6 of a given item; it really just depended on what the product was and how difficult it was to make. And as a side note, when I set my pricing for my products, the price reflected my product minimum (i.e. if I had a minimum of 4 room sprays, then the price of that product was the cost of a total of 4 room sprays). That way, there was no worry about having someone order just one room spray–they were always ordering 4, to meet the minimum.

Some wholesalers do not require minimums, and that is always your choice, of course. But my goal was always to ensure, as much as was possible, that my products were being purchased for resale, rather than for personal use. And minimums help to deter those who would purchase products unethically at wholesale prices for their own use or consumption, which was very important to me.

Pricing
Figuring out how to price your products for wholesale can be tricky at times. But you can simplify it a lot if you keep the goal in mind: to cover the costs of your materials and to make a profit.

Many wholesalers use the Keystone Pricing method. That is, half the price of retail. So if you are selling a product for a retail price of $10, you would charge $5 for wholesale. I’m sure you’ve encountered this pricing method on many websites from which you purchase products or supplies wholesale yourself. But keystoning isn’t always the best choice, and when it’s not, that’s when you just need to get creative. Many wholesalers will simply use a percentage off–it might be 30% off retail, 40% etc. But there are no hard and fast rules on pricing. You really need to do whatever is best for you, as you keep in mind that goal: cover the costs AND make a profit.

Customer Tax ID’s
In most states, though not all, in order to purchase goods wholesale, a person must have one of the following forms of documentation to legally qualify to do so. Keep in mind, some states do not require any license or documentation at all, so it’s best to verify this if a potential customer tells you they don’t need a “Tax ID.” There’s a link here on OBJ on the Small Business Resources page; it is to the Small Business Administration and it lists all the links for each state’s Tax or Revenue Department. That’s a good resource for following up on each state’s tax requirements.

Additionally, the license or documentation needed may vary from state to state, and they may be called something completely different from state to state as well. So the list I’m including here may not be all inclusive.

Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN)
Reseller’s License
Reseller’s Certificate
Vendor’s License
Business License
Sales Tax Exemption Certificate

Validating ID’s—to Keep Your Customer’s Honest

When I was wholesaling, it was very important to me to keep my customers as honest as possible. Most of them were anyway, but sometimes it was “iffy” at best. I wanted to be sure that if I was busting my rear to make each and every product that I was wholesaling–and sacrificing retail profits in order to do so–that my customers had the legal right to purchase my products at wholesale prices. So to that end, I required that every customer who requested access to my wholesale pricing to first provide me with a photocopy of their Tax ID (in whatever form their state required). They had to either Fax it to me, snail mail, or email it so that I would have a hard copy on file of their documentation. And then I could verify a number of items:

Customer’s name and address (If they don’t match, don’t approve until you know why–most licenses are only valid for a single address);
Expiration date of the documentation, if applicable (don’t accept it if it’s expired);
State of Origin–so I could verify a state’s requirements, if needed.
Many states have websites that will allow you to search for valid Vendor’s Licenses, Tax ID’s, etc online. I wish they all did! So when in doubt, it doesn’t hurt to check with any state you have questions about.

Some other things to keep in mind as you get ready to wholesale…

It’s important to be aware that while an FEIN is a legitimate form of documentation, a business is generally only required to have one if they have employees (though there are exceptions to this). I often see sites requesting a copy of potential customers’ FEIN, and that’s just not always appropriate, because not everyone needs to have one.

It is quite common for a husband or wife to attempt to use their spouse’s Tax ID to purchase goods wholesale. They may do this for the purpose of resale, or to purchase goods for personal use. Either way, it’s unethical at the very least, and in many cases, it’s also illegal.

In many states, a Vendor’s License (or its reasonable alternative) can only be used to purchase wholesale products that match the genre of the seller’s business. Meaning, if you sell bath and body products, and a customer has a plumbing business and wants to use their Vendor’s License to purchase your products, they are not legally allowed to do so.

It is to your benefit to maintain copies of all your wholesale customers’ Tax ID’s for accounting/tax purposes. If you were to be audited, you may be required to provide proof that you were indeed selling your wholesale products to those who were legally allowed to do so.

I hope this information will serve at least as a good starting point for those of you interested in wholesaling. I am by no means an expert on this topic. But I am sharing my experience and knowledge with you, in hopes that it may be of some use and help.

Our Featured "WAHM Of The Week"

Name: Roberta Boteler

1) Tell us a little about yourself.
I am married.

2) How many children do you have?
I have one 17 year old son

3) Are you married, single, divorced, never married, in a relationship?
Married

4) What kind of work do you do? Are you a stay at home mom? Do you own your own business?
I run my own business from my home. I mentor people to experience success beyond their wildest imaginations, freeing them from physical, mental, emotional and financial pain. Serviing individuals to live their lives in 3D Design, Desire and Destiny.........come join me.
roberta.successin10steps.com/?mad=36324

5) Do you enjoy the work you do?
I love it. It is what I was created to do.

6) Did you know that this would be what you'd do as an adult? Or was it just something that happened (fate, fun, destiny, coincidence, financial need, etc)?
Since i was 16 I knew that I would be serving people in a capacity that would set them free and bring enlightment to them allowing them to succeed wildly in their lives.

7) Where do you see yourself in five years?
I see myself living in Arvada, CO with my husband on 5 acres. On that property there will be small cottages to serve as an oasis for pastors. We will also have an Equestrian ministry working to bring healing to physically and emotionally challenged people. We will also have a Total Health and Wellness center that will bring spiritual, physical, mental, emotional and financial healing to many people. Along with my husband and I, my friend Nancy and her husband and our mutual friend Robert will be in this endeavor with us.

8)Are You With Any Work At Home Mom Social Networks? Or Groups That You Would Like To Share? "IE;"...Cafemom, Ryze, Momspace, Etc.
I am a member of Cafe Mom

9) Do You Have Any Advice You Could Give For Another Mom About Starting To Work From Home?
The best thing I can say is above all enjoy your children at whatever stage they are as tomorrow it will change. As Kenny Chesney's song states, "Don't Blink". As for businesss, I have learned from my search to find my own missing link that in order to be successful there are five elements that must be in place in any company I choose to participate with, they are: 1) The leaders of the company must have proven experience and integrity 2) The timing of the company. Is it a start up company? 98% of all start up companies fail within the first two years, so they must be past that stage for me to consider them. 3) Compensation plan, be certain you are clear on how many people you will need to reach your desired monthly income. ie the majority of companies you have to have 1,000-3,000 people in your organization to create a $10,000/mo residual income. In my company I receive that same $10,000/mo residual income with only 350 people brough in collectively as our company's business model is based on the power of one. 4) The company must have a good product. 5) There must be a proven, duplicatable system in place.
Other than that surround yourself with positive people and influences. Strive to stay in the eight positive emotions 100% of the time and stay away from the negative ones. The emotions are:

Positive Emotions
LOVE
DESIRE
FAITH
SEX
ENTHUSIASM
ROMANCE
HOPE
PROSPERITY


Negative Emotions.
Fear
Jealousy
Hatred
Revenge
Greed
Superstition
Anger
Lack

Continuously work on self development as it is the key to success. Wealth follows personal growth. 1) Must be coachable 2) Need to have a mentor and a team 3) Have a Five pillar company 4) Have a duplicatable system 5) Practice Self Development 6) Be a student of the industry Books I recommend are: #1 The Greatest Secret by Ron Macintosh www.rmmimpact.com As a Man Thinketh by James Allen, Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill.


Lastly, if you have any questions, struggles or just want to chat I am at Skype: robertaboteler and my e-mail is freementorforlife@gmail.com Call me anytime at (308) 882 1707.

) Do you enjoy the work you do?
Work? This is work? I LOVE the work I do!

) Did you know that this would be what you'd do as an adult?
Helping people has always been my focus. I even am told stories of my compassion and helping from before I remember! Or was it just something that happened (fate, fun, destiny,
coincidence, financial need, etc)? I really do believe there is no such thing as coincidence. We all have a purpose, we all have intention. Unfortunately, we don't always use it to our best..

)Are You With Any Work At Home Mom Social Networks? The Mom Pack Or Groups That You Would Like To Share? "IE;"...Cafemom, Ryze, Momspace,
Etc.
) Do You Have Any Advice You Could Give For Another Mom About Starting To Work From Home?
Explore your true desires and likes. Whatever you do will be work unless it is your passion. Then, it will be play. It is still hard for my husband to tell people I promote greeting cards. Actually, I promote enhancing communication, at the personal and/or professional level. And anyone with Internet access can send an inexpensive salutation and brighten someone's day! He would much rather tell people of the great nurse I am and the joy I had in my previous experiences. But he has yet to grasp that the simple act of sending a greeting card (as he has witnessed with mine) can brighten a persons day, beyond any therapy or any medication. I love sharing Spread the Joy Send Out Cards!

If there's anything else you'd like to say, please feel free to say it here.
Keep a balance. Make sure the path you are on is yours, and not an attempt to please someone else.
Thank you for this opportunity to present myself. It is appreciated beyond words.

June's MVP Of The Month

Each month we will feature a new MVP shade and offer a full size container of the shade for the price of a large sample. (you save $7 - almost 59% off!)

June's MVP:
In The Nude


With just a hint of pink (the picture looks more peach), this shimmering MVP is my new favorite. I use it on my lips with our Addiction glossy lip balm.

"Featured Wahm Of The Week"

Name: Lorraine Spencer

) Tell us a little about yourself. I was able to finally quit my full time managerial job last fall and now work at home full time running my home based businesses. I have worked in direct sales for over 30 years on and off and I actually sold Rubbermaid when it was a party plan...lol
I am the mother of 3 grown children and grandmother of 7. I can attest that being a Stay at home mom is one of the best things you can do for your children. Direct Sales made it possible for me to do this with my own children and to also home school them. We homeschooled when it wasn't cool...lol...a trendsetter I guess.

) How many children do you have? 3

) Are you married, single, divorced, never married, in a relationship? Divorced
) What kind of work do you do? I represent 4 Direct Sales companies. My main company is Avon and Thirty-One comes in next. I also sell Jerky Direct and SendOutCards.Are you a stay at home mom? I do work at home, but my children are grown. This does allow me to see my children when I want and to spend time with my grandchildren when I am able to.Do you own your own business? I own my own direct sales businesses Share links if applicable.
http://www.youravon.com/lspencer
http://www.mythirtyone.com/success31
http://www.iluvjerky.jerkydirect.com
http://www.sendoutcards.com/13626
) Do you enjoy the work you do? I love the work that I do. Every day is different. Each day can be a challenge also.

) Did you know that this would be what you'd do as an adult?I never would have dreamed that I would do this as an adult. I just evolved into it. No matter what I have done or tried in my life, I always come back to sales. That is what I am good at, but I am not pushy or anything like that. I just genuinely like people and like to help them. Or was it just something that happened (fate, fun, destiny, coincidence, financial need, etc)?

) Where do you see yourself in five years?In 5 years, I still see myself doing what I am doing, only traveling more as I do it. That is my ultimate goal, to set up all of my businesses to work anywhere, so that I can travel.

)Are You With Any Work At Home Mom Social Networks?I am with the Mom Pack and also Moms United in Business. I also am a member of the DSWA-Direct Selling Women's Alliance and am a member of the board of the Salt Lake Group Chapter for the DSWA.

) Do You Have Any Advice You Could Give For Another Mom About Starting To Work From Home?I think that the best advice I could give to a mom that is starting to work from home is to "Find Your Passion" first...meaning, do what you love and of course love what you do. The rest will fall into place if you love what you are doing. Also, strive to learn all that you can about what you are doing and how to do it best.
If there's anything else you'd like to say, please feel free to say it here. I would like to thank Rachel for this great opportunity to be a featured WAHM of the Week. I love doing what I do and am always willing to help others and answer any questions that they might have. If anyone has any questions for me, feel free to get ahold of me and ask away. Just tell me that you saw the article on here and I will put you as top priority. moolaonthenet@yahoo.com

Here is one of my favorite quotes...
"Whether you think that you can, or that you can't, you are usually right."
- Henry Ford (1863-1947)

Beautiful Diva & Project True Beauty



Over the years, Beautiful Diva has hired women who are chronically unemployed and living in poverty (many living in shelters) to help us fill and package our products, we've called this effort, Project True Beauty.



It is with a happy heart that I announce that Project True Beauty is receiving sponsorship. Today we are joining forces with Beth El Shelter in Milford, CT and a local church.



Case workers at Beth El Shelter will be referring women to Beautiful Diva as part of Project True Beauty.



The First Baptist Church is donating the use of a building to allow us to expand our production and our project.

Women who join us as part of Project True Beauty will work and develop basic skills required to obtain entry level employment.



We are not providing full-time employment, we are providing transitional employment and immediate income for these women.



Our project has attracted the support of local individuals and organizations.

Now we can official say, when a consumer purchases a product from Beautiful Diva, they are not only helping your businesses, but they are also helping Beautiful Diva has a positive impact in the lives of women who are chronically unemployed and living in poverty.

Thank you for taking the time to share in our excitement.

Sincerely,
Myra Roldan
CEO
Beautiful Diva

"Featured Wahm Of The Week"

Name: Kristy Garland



) Tell us a little about yourself. My name is Kristy Garland from Central California. I am a married mother of 4. I own and operate two home based businesses, Passion Parties by Kristy http://passionpartiesbykristy.com/ and KG Business Solutions http://kgbusinesssolutions.com/

) How many children do you have? 4 (3 girls and 1 boy)

) Are you married, single, divorced, never married, in a relationship? I am married to my awesome husband Rodney. We have been together for 5 years this coming November.

) What kind of work do you do? Are you a stay at home mom? Do you own your own business? Share links if applicable. I am a work at home mom. I own and operate KG Business Solutions, which is a virtual assistant business. I contract with other small business owners, and assist them with everything from marketing to paperwork.

I also own and operate Passion Parties by Kristy. Passion Parties is the number 1 romance company in US and Canada. We do in-home, online and catalog parties for adults over 18 years of age.

) Do you enjoy the work you do? I love what I do! I can be home for my children and still make money to give them what they need and want. Have to love that!!

) Did you know that this would be what you'd do as an adult? Or was it just something that happened (fate, fun, destiny, coincidence, financial need, etc) Actually I started in school to become a lawyer, but after welcoming my first daughter into the world that all changed. I then knew I did not want to spend all my time in school and away from her. I wanted to be home with her! I am so happy that I can now do that.

) Where do you see yourself in five years? I see myself having an awesome team of Passion Parties Divas. I also see myself working with awesome new clients through my VA business.

)Are You With Any Work At Home Mom Social Networks? Or Groups That You Would Like To Share? "IE;"...Cafemom, Ryze, Momspace, Etc. I am with so many groups I can’t remember them all! I am all over the place. I really love using Twitter and can be found there @ Passion_Kristy Come tweet with me!!

) Do You Have Any Advice You Could Give For Another Mom About Starting To Work From Home? Take your time in looking for something that fits with you. Don’t jump into the first thing you find! Also remember it does not always take money to get started with something, but a lot of direct selling businesses (such as Passion Parties) requires you to purchase a kit.

If there's anything else you'd like to say, please feel free to say it here.

Thank-you, Kristy Garland

The Easiest Money I've Ever Made!


I found something that I think you will like. The company's name is YouData (youdata.com). They are trying to convince consumers like us that we should be the ones controlling our own data and selling our own attention, not third parties like broadcasters, newspapers, and spammers. By creating a MeFile at YouData.com, I now control what ads I see and when I see them. Best part - I am selling my attention directly to interested advertisers, for real money. That's right, I get paid for giving them my attention. I can use the funds to buy music and video online, donate to charities, give to my favorite blogs and websites, or keep the change myself and do whatever I want with it.

It's real. They pay. You should check it out.

Click this link to sign up. My MeFile ID, divarachel, in the "Referral Code" will tell them I sent you.

Teaporia's Flavor's Of The Month For May

The flavors of the month for MAY are:

BUCKINGHAM PALACE GARDEN PARTY:
Flavoury with medium body and delicate earl grey and jasmine notes. Luxury black tea, Luxury green tea, Jasmine & Cornflower petals, Natural flavors. Intriguing hints of high-grown pure Ceylon Earl Grey blend effortlessly with the soft jasmine from Fujian Province. Couple this with malty Assam (from the estate of Borengajuli), flavory Dimbula Ceylon (from Hatton), brisk and golden cup East of Rift Kenya (from Kambaa and Kagwe) and you have one of the most flavorful teas to come from the British Isles. Each cup is a cup of mystery - the flavors all come to the fore at separate times - one minute you taste the Earl Grey, the next second you can almost feel the soft floral notes of jasmine and finally you get the satisfying fullness of the Assam Ceylon and Kenya blend. Enjoy this tea and be a part of the annual tradition in the west gardens of Buckingham Palace.


QUEEN MARY:
Named after the largest and fastest ocean liner, this tea will comfort you and bring you peace of mind. This black tea has excellent flavor and is tempered with flowery character and malty notes. A wonderful blend whether you are lounging in your deck chair or sitting seaside!
