Do You Have A Plan B? – Making A Second Income

As we say goodbye to 2020 and hello to what we all hope will be a brighter 2021, many people may be looking for a second income stream for the future. If we’ve learnt anything from 2020, it’s that the future is uncertain and whilst we cannot predict what might happen, we can prepare and build in ways to be more resilient when things get tough.

Having a second income stream can provide a buffer if your main income stops and having a plan B is a very sensible approach. Tropic Skincare is a company which lends itself brilliantly to part-time, flexible work that you can fit around existing work, childcare or other commitments AND you are completely in control.

You decide how many hours you want to work. You decide what time of day you work and where and how.

So what are the benefits of choosing Tropic Skincare as your second income stream?

Low start-up costs


Setting a business up can be a daunting prospect, especially if you’ve never been in business before. Some businesses can require a large financial outlay before you are anywhere near ready to start selling and bringing in income. If you make and sell products, you are likely to incur research and development costs which you will have to pay for ahead of making any revenue. When you invest in building a business as a Tropic Ambassador, your initial outlay is very low- £198 for the starter kit, so the financial risks are minimal.

Becoming part of a team

Each new Tropic Ambassador works under a manager who is responsible for ensuring that they understand the products and can communicate about the products clearly and authentically. Your manager will hold a range of training opportunities to enable you to plan your business carefully so you can grow and become more successful. Training could cover a range of business skills such as bookkeeping, admin and marketing. Your manager will be available if you have questions or issues, so you are never on your own.

Business Coaching

Your success is a top priority for your manager so not only will you get support and guidance you will get a business coach who has already grown a highly successful Tropic business – they know what they are talking about and they can help you do it too! Listen and implement what your manager suggests, and you will be much more likely to create your own successful business and achieve your desired second income.


In any business, no matter how good the products or services, if you don’t resonate with your customers, you may not be as successful as you’d like. If no-one knows what you are doing, even if it’s brilliant, you won’t be bringing in the sales. Marketing activities at Tropic are simple because Head Office provides a huge range of resources you can use as part of your investment. This ranges from the starter kit, which enables you to demonstrate the products through to visuals for social media and access to other written materials for promotion such as blogs.

The Tropic products are so good, they pretty much sell themselves – all you need do is get someone to try one product and chances are they will become a repeat customer.
