We Can Help You in Your Search for a Legitimate Work-at-Home Business!!!

In my experience of helping others find the financial freedom and flexibility working from home can bring, it never ceases to amaze me when I hear the misinformation so many people have about working from home.  First, we have those who don’t understand the concept that any credible opportunity will require work.  There are always those who feel that work at home is a vacation and maybe they will devote a couple of hours if that a week and expect to replace their income.  It is these same people I find who are skeptical about real opportunity and yet will sink a hefty sum of money into a scam that makes phony promises.  Somehow, the lies, the deception of scammers just sound more appealing than work.

If you are really looking to change your life, for whatever your reason or your “why,”  I implore you to do your due diligence when researching any opportunity.  If a company does not want to provide you with facts about their company or is asking for a hefty investment up front, you can probably be sure it is not on the up and up.

What about MLMs?  MLM opportunities are a dime a dozen.  They can be very risky, have a high percentage of failure, depend on what time you “got in” to determine if you will make any substantial income, have breakaways, require you to meet quotas in order to earn and to start from 0 every month, having you sell overpriced products to your friends and family as well as stock and inventory you may never liquidate.  Many people get involved with MLM companies over and over again hoping to find the one that works.  Lots of times they try to get in on the ground floor with a new company and that is so risky because the rate of failure of MLM companies in the first year or two is huge!  Then they can just kiss their investment good-bye and chalk up another MLM failure.

MLMs also carry a huge stigma because people have been burned and know others that have been as well.  Take the company Amway that had such a bad reputation they thought changing their name would cure that.  It didn’t, people learned it was just Amway under a different name.

So are there real businesses that are not scams and not MLMs around that you can successfully build from your home?  The answer is a resounding YES!!!  How can you tell what is a real opportunity and what is a scam?  Here are some important tips to help you in your evaluations?

1. Are they asking for an initial investment?  It is normal to have to make some kind of investment with any business venture whether working from home or not.  Uniforms, supplies, work attire, gas for commuting, self-help resources etc.  However, when you are asked to pay a substantial amount and have no guarantee of getting your money back if the opportunity is not for you, my advice is to walk away.  A legitimate company should offer you a grace period in which you can decide if the opportunity is the right fit, if not you should be given any investment made no matter how small.

2. Do they have a good support team to help you build your business.  Even with the most motivated, self-disciplined people it can be quite a change to work from home.  To be successful you really need a good mentoring team to help you, train you, coach you and just to vent to.  If the company is just interested in getting your money and then leaving you to your own resources, it is going to be tough if not impossible to be successful and will have you wondering if they are setting you up to fail.

3. Ask to see the companies credentials in print.  They should be happy to give you reports from the Better Business Bureau, and other accolades that the company has received.

It Can Be You and It Can Be Now!!!

Gas prices have hit a ridiculous high in our area.  There has never been a time where it is more cost-effective to stay home as much as possible.  It is less expensive to shop online because even shipping fees tend to be less than the gas it would take to go out to shop.  One of the worst things is for people who have to commute a fair distance to work.  For so many the price of gas is taking such a toll and making it so that they are breaking even if they are lucky at the end of the work week.  If they have to pay for child care on top of that, it is likely  they are losing money going to work.

I think the ability to work from home has never been so attractive as it is now.  The problem is, there are so many scams that people are distrustful even of the legitimate opportunities.  It may be, that they were burned before or that they have heard horror stories of friends.  It may be, from things they read on the Internet.  However, to generalize and discount all work at home opportunities as scams, is a dangerous thing to do.  There are legitimate work at home businesses and opportunities out there.  You do have to educate yourself and do your due diligence.

Knowledge is power and you need to really research an opportunity.  I will tell you right off, that if you think you are going to make $1000.00 a week stuffing envelopes, you are in for a very unpleasant surprise.  If anyone tells you that you are going to make significant money doing close to nothing, I will tell you that it’s a scam.  There are legitimate home businesses and opportunities out there, but they all need you to do one thing…WORK!  You have to work, you have to treat it like any other business.  Just because you work from home does not mean you do not have to put in serious hours, especially when you are building your business.

So  then, why are there so many people bad mouthing companies that are credible and providing tremendous opportunity for people to work from home and realize financial freedom?  I will tell you why, there are so many people who decide to work from home and treat their business like a hobby.  They do not put any priority on it.  The biggest problem is they lack self-discipline and when they don’t have a time clock to punch or a boss breathing down their neck, they just don’t put the hours in that are needed to be successful.  They seem to think that they will coast by, and then at the end of the week or the month when they don’t earn what they were expecting they assign blame to the company.  Instead of it being a huge wake up call that they need to get their act together and buckle down and work, they quit.  They quit and then go on to tell everyone and anyone that will listen that the company is a scam, you will never make any money etc.  Instead of placing the blame where it should be and making a change they take the easy way out and quit.  People like this are dangerous because they do not want others to succeed in something they failed at.

No legitimate company will ever tell you that you do not have to put in hours, go to trainings, meetings etc., which are easy to attend from your computer or conference line.  If you want to be successful, you have to do the things needed to get you there.  You need to have a strong drive to work from home.

When you find a legitimate business, you have to remember to separate fact from fiction when on the Internet.  Look at the sources that are citing information or slandering a certain company.  What I notice about people on the Internet or in person who discount a company I know is legitimate, is that they often say something like, “I was with that company for 2 months and I made $50.  You can’t make money there, it’s a scam”  If I could talk to them I would ask, “Did you put in the hours you needed, how many hours did you work and what did you do?  Did you work with your team, did you attend meetings, special trainings etc?”  Truth be told, whether they admit it or not they did not do the activities necessary to be successful.  They came into this expecting a free ride and still get paid well.  That does not happen, you don’t get something for nothing.   You have to work for anything that’s worth it and you will have to make sacrifices especially as you get established.  It is not easy but if you are determined and work hard you will be successful beyond your wildest dreams.

With any business there are ups and downs, bad days and good.  So many are ready to throw in the towel after a bad day.  They don’t realize if they just press on and keep working that even though there will still be bad days, they will be successful.  Just talk to some of the most successful people and you will find that they have had some really bad days even in a business that they are extremely successful in.  They have days that everything just seems to go wrong.  The difference is, they know that it will pass, they chalk it up to a bad day and move on.  That is the difference between those who are successful and those who are not.  Persistence, drive, determination, and a winning attitude is what they have.

So, if you truly want to work from home.  You need to do your due diligence and find a legitimate opportunity.  Then, you need to put the time and effort in to be successful.  Last, when the going gets tough, you have to make the decision to press on.

You should ask yourself: If not me than who?  If not now than when?  Why not me?  Why not now?  If you are ready to take the next step contact us for more information on credible work at home opportunities.  It can be you and it can be now!

Are You Listening To A Leader Or A Failure Who Wants Company?

Do you know why some great companies get a bad name?  It is because the very people who go around bad mouthing work at home legitimate businesses are disgruntled because the business was not the get rich quick scheme they wanted it to be.

Business is work, many people go searching for that magic opportunity that will get them great wealth, financial freedom, flexibility, let them be their own boss but they do not want to pay their dues.  I am not talking about putting up money, I am talking about putting in time, doing real work, real work that will pay off in spades.

I see it all the time.  Someone hears about a company, they join that company and do the bare minimum if that.  They think that it is going to be easy and they will not have to do anything, they don’t attend any optional training meetings, even if they are online and convenient, they don’t put forth the effort to be a leader. They don’t come in strong, they are the most proactive when they are making the decision but then, they sit back.  When success does not find them in a month, two months, they quit.  They lack the drive to work, they lack the drive to persevere and they give up at the first sign of any resistance.  They jump ship and then to be certain no one attributes their failure to them, they go about bad mouthing the company telling others that they are a scam, no money can be made etc.  They will do everything in their power to thwart any one else from giving it a go.  They want company because misery loves company.

It takes the right person to do their due diligence, to make the decision to work, and do just that.  Those people are the leaders, those people are the ones who go above and beyond what is required, they are the small percent that reach and surpass their greatest goals and it is done because they persevere where other bail.

Make sure you are listening to leaders and not failures when you are trying to research a business. Don’t let others keep you down because they could not make it.  Reach for the stars if you want them, enjoy the ride but don’t give up and keep on going.  If you put the time in, put the work in, keep doing it, you will see that you can make it and you can be one of the leaders that did not give up.
