Just my opinion but no matter what business you get into you have to do some sort of selling. It's just a good skill to learn if you plan on having your own businesses.

Oh hey and just for the record selling doesn't mean pressuring people into buying something they don't need. The best sales men/women buil relationships that make you trust them, their company and their product and generally leave the decision as to whether you buy or not up to you. There are some tricks that help with the process but at the end of the day you want motivated buyers who are happy doing repeat business with you and you don't get those by tricking people.

Hi Joseph,

Have you ever thought about Affiliate Marketing? It's easy to start your home-based business with affiliate marketing. You need a website/blog to portray your online business ideas, no investment is required as almost all merchants offer free signup. First choose the correct product to promote on your blog/website, product selection should take into account the high demand value. And the next step is promoting your affiliate programs on your web.

Millions of affiliates send billions of visitors to tens of thousands of companies in return for a payment. Give it a thought.

- Veronica.

From my experience, most people do not want to sell and are not comfortable selling. A traditional MLM model based on buying and then trying to resell an inventory is not something most people are able to succeed with. I found an interesting site www home-wealth-success.net which gives excellent idea about home-based business. Itís worth trying.
Yes i heard it also. . . Good product but its very expensive product, too hard to sell. If you really want to sell in net you should learn seo some do research it will help you a lot in your business.

Default Be weary, check out many before investing right up front

I am constantly looking for something along the lines of a home based business. Its sometimes hard to differentiate legitimate offers from MLM etc. I think the term "Home Based" might be too loose, its too easily affiliated with "work from home" opps and such . . .
