The Ellison siblings are a perfect example. Here’s what they have to say about their experience with O’Currance:
1. Tell me about your family and how you three got involved with O’Currance.
Seth: I found out about O’Currance because my sisters Chelsea and Afton started working there and I realized they were making just as much or more than I was in half the amount of time. About two years ago I started working for O’Currance at home and I guess it’s been a family affair.
Chelsea: I have been with O’Currance for about 5 1/2 years, taking six months off while my husband was working in California. It has been great for me to be able to work my own hours around my own scheduled, catered to me and my families needs. I was the first to begin working with O’Currance after reading a newspaper advertisement. It took a while for my siblings to believe how much money I was actually making, but eventually they wanted to jump on this opportunity and see the same results.
Afton: I have been with O’Currance for 2 years, and I love the flexibility.
2. What makes O’Currance different from the other work-at-home jobs?
There are so many ways that O’Currance is different from other work-at-home jobs. Some of the work-at-home jobs out there say you can make good money, then you find out that there are sign up fees involved and membership fees. O’Currance pays you for your time, not the other way around. You get paid an hourly rate, plus commission on top of that. Also, we offer health benefits like most office jobs. Plus you have an incredible, supportive management staff that is always there to help you when you need it.

Yes, we are extremely competitive especially within our own family. This is how we stay motivated, and see purpose in our work. We always have sales goals we are working towards.
4. Do any of you feel like there are obstacles with working from home?
There’s going to be obstacles with any job you have. I guess the main obstacle to working from home is staying motivated. Some people tend to become to relaxed when they work from home, so you really need to be a self motivator.
5. How do you balance home life/work in the same place?
The great thing about working for O’Currance is we’re open 24 hours a day 7 days a week. You can pick a schedule that will allow the most time for you take care of your family, so it balances itself out. Also, since we’re all involved in the company we get to see each other at work meetings and we’re able to really relate to each other.

Yes. You have the option to work from home or one of our two offices in Draper and West Valley.
