Direct sales aren’t limited by gender, but sometimes you just don’t want to sell jewelry or scented candles or makeup. Many of these products certainly have a bit of a lady bias, so I don’t blame you for craving direct selling opportunities that feel more gender-neutral. Luckily, I’ve got your back and have put together a list of 10 direct sales companies that fit the bill! Check them out below:

Ambit Energy is a bit of a unique opportunity in that it’s only available in certain states across the US – but, if you’re in one of those deregulated markets, you can start selling their electricity and natural gas services. They emphasize the redistribution of wealth that’s currently transforming the energy sector thanks to deregulated markets, and that their customers can save money on energy costs and even take advantage of solar energy. Customers who refer new customers can earn free energy. To become an Independent Consultant for Ambit Energy, there is an up-front cost of $75 and a monthly fee of $24.95 to maintain the website they provide you. You can make money from Ambit Energy by signing up new customers, by your customer-gatherers signing up new customers, and from residuals generated by those customers paying their energy bills.
