Legitimate work from home business or Home Business Opportunity Home businesses are one of fastest growing sectors of business today, with the recent recession people are looking for an alternative to finding work which can and is getting lower and lower paid.
The fact of the matter is that employers have to become more competitive as costs increase and clients want businesses to supply their goods or services for less. Therefore it is clear to see that employers who lost staff to the recession, are now re-employing but at lower rates, sometimes even at the minimum wage rate. This allows the employer to cut costs and become more competitive.
Let’s face it if you were an employer under pressure you would do so too, it’s basic supply and demand in that there are many hundreds of applicants for each job that comes onto the jobs market and it naturally follows that employers can and do find new employees for less.
This is where the work from home businesses have come to many people’s rescue. This short article is written in order to help all those people who are looking to start up their own work from home business. I am certain many people who are at threat of losing their jobs or have lost their jobs would prefer to earn a real income from home rather than go back to work for less money than they are used to earning, I mean “How Much Do You Value Your Time” why should you work for peanuts to line somebody else’s pocket?
One of my first work from home business mentor’s favourite saying is this, “it takes just as long to go broke as it does to get rich! So don’t get mad get wealthy!”
How To Get A Good Home Business Opportunity.
If you are going to start a home based business then trust me you are going to need a mentor, someone to set you targets, show you how to achieve your goals and be there for you when you need that home business coach and mentor.
Beware there are lots of make money online programmes out there but you must be careful, there are no secrets and there is no magic bullet, but there is a “Formula” a systematic approach that anyone can use to make money online in their own home based business opportunity, and it isn’t that difficult, you just need someone to show you how and to help and encourage you.
Warning if you see get rich overnight offers on the internet and they seem too good to be true 99 percent of the time they are. The importance of researching any home based business opportunity cannot be stressed strongly enough. Like most people I fell for many scams and get rich schemes that cost me dearly, I very nearly went broke, so here are a few pointers to help you decide.
1. If a home based business opportunity seems too good to be true it probably is.
2. If someone rings you from a call centre and promises to show you how to make money online and how to build websites (which is easier than you think and any way you don’t need to know how) they will usually ask for between $5,000 and $12,000 “Investment” tell them to get stuffed!
3. If a call centre member of staff on $10.00 per hour really knew how to make money online, don’t you think he or she would be doing it themselves?
4. Stay away from MLM’s and Matrixes unless you have hundreds of like minded acquaintances that will join you, trust me you will become avoided and very lonely.
5. Check out the business and who is behind it.
6. Have they succeeded online themselves?
7. Have they taught others to build a successful home business?
8. Does this work from home business have a track record of happy successful clients?
Please just use your common sense, analyze what’s on offer, you need training and coaching, help and encouragement once or twice a week from a coach who has already made it. You need a coaching program and a personal mentor who was once where you are now.
Now when I first found a real opportunity after two years of being taken for an idiot, I was able to make a reasonable amount of money within 90 days. I stuck with this for a while and then went onto something bigger, I only tell you this so as you don’t make the mistakes that I made, start with a low cost coaching program, and do not buy a home business study course, yes, many of them are superb, but until you learn the basic formula for a home based business you probably won’t understand a word of it.
One of the main benefits of these businesses is that they are “earn while you learn coaching programmes” and I only know of a handful that will get you from where you are now to where you need to be quite quickly, and at a price affordable to the average guy, working or not.
Now I want to share my own experience with you all regarding the ups and downs of home based business opportunities as I have seen several people quitting their home business just because they think that they lack the necessary skills and investment.
Well let me tell you now, that is simply not true, I have met online entrepreneurs, who (and I don’t mean to be offensive) if you met them you would think they are retarded, and I mean it, yet these people are very wealthy, surely if they can do it – you can too! Start with a low cost earn as you learn business, and very soon you will be a successful work from home business entrepreneur.
Word of warning Never start with an MLM or Matrix, they only make the guy’s that run them rich!
Success in any internet marketing business is built with knowing the formula, the systems and systematic approach to online marketing. The second step is learning, and please remember that your time and my time are limited resources. These are precious resources must be carefully used at all times.
