How is a Motives Pro-Artist Different from a Motives Beauty Advisor?

The primary difference is that as a Pro-Artist, you may only earn an income through retail profits.  If you would like build a team of distributors and earn, potentially unlimited, commissions then you should consider becoming a Motives Beauty Advisor.

Please contact me using the form below if you would like additional clarification on the differences between the two.

  41. Crystal,

    As a Motives Pro Artist, you are limited to earning retail profit on the Motives Cosmetics and Skin Care products that you, personally, sell. As a Motives Beauty Advisor, you may also earn commissions on your sales plus on all of the sales of your team. The retail profit is the same – the difference is the ability to earn commissions.
