Turning Dreams Into Reality....

Why are some businesses successful and others not so much?

First look at the company you are with.  Are they successful?  Chances are if they aren't growing, you never will either.  If the company is trhiving and you aren't, why not?

Working from home can be a tough industry.  First you have to have complete belief in what it is you are doing.  If you don't, it will shine through.  You must be partnered with a company that manufactures products that real people need, use, run out of and already have to repurchase.

If you're promoting something that's considered a "want"... chances are you will eventually run out of people who want to make the purchase.

Look for a company that is making a profit, that has a proven track record.  You want a company that has been established.  These "ground level" opportunites are scary.  It takes at least 5 years for a company to get on their feet.  Do you really want to get into a start-up company that will likely never get off the ground??

Is the company in debt?  Chances are, if they are... you likely won't be making any money.

Learn about the compensation plan.  How will you get paid.  Are there break-aways?  Can you make more money than the person who helped you get started?  Are people buying their way to the next level/status?  People get hurt and lose money... be cautious!

Research the company through reputable websites.  Remember, most of what is on the internet is opinion based.  We all have different opinions and are free to share all over the internet.... but this doesn't mean it's a correct representation of the company.  A good, reputable site is the Better Business Bureau (http://www.bbb.org/).  Find out what the company BBB rating is.  Have they had complaints?  Did the company bother to rectify any complaints?

Do your research.  Just because one person didn't have success with a certain company, doesn't mean you won't.  Everyone is different.  What is your work ethic?  Do you have credibility?  Do you have goals?  What is your reason for wanting to work from home?

Anyone can work from home... not everyone will be successful.  Anything worthwhile takes work.  There are no such thing as "get rich quick". 

Happy searching!
