Talking Tips For Finding The Best Home Business

Here is some questions that you should ask yourself before joining any home business. I failed at 5 different home businesses before I found the one I'm currently with, and now I will be a self made millionaire within the next 2 years easily. Out of the 6 home businesses that I have been a part of, only my current business gets a yes to all these questions. I could have saved a lot of time if I would have known this before.

This is not an advertisement, because everyone's answers will be different even for the same home business. I just thought I would share it, because it might help someone looking to find a good business for them.

1. Is this company proven? - Are there people who can prove making a lot of money with this opportunity?

2. Is it something that is easy to do? - While it will take time and work, can you do it without much prior knowledge?

3. Is your future sponsor willing to work 1 on 1 with you? - Will this person go out of their way to help you succeed? This may be the biggest one, because if they are having success, and they can show you how to do exactly what they're doing, then it's almost fail-proof.

4. Is there a proven system in place that is easy to duplicate? - Don't try to recreate the wheel. You want a business that you can plug into a simple system and see results.

5. Is there an investment? - Free opportunities are never going to get you anywhere, and very small investments will make you money either, unless you plan on building a team of a hundred thousand.

These are a few of the top questions that you need to ask yourself. I will post others if they are important, but this is a solid core of them. There are a select few home businesses out there that will make you a lot of money if you treat them as a real business.

I agree with everything on this post except that I would like to provide some clarification to the following question:

Is this company proven? - Are there people who can prove making a lot of money with this opportunity?

In my view sometime you can be fooled with this one. There are many business opportunities whose founders/CEO's select a "certain few" who they want to use as the "Successful ones". They do this because they want to make sure at least a few people are making money showing others that it is simple and can be done. As a result these "certain few" get all of the corporate support, including all of the corporate leads etc.. This is an unfair advantage to someone else who might not get that support.
