Up-line-This goes along with training you will get from your business. Can you get in contact with others in business that have been successful? It’s nice to know path others have taken to become successful in your business. They can give you helpful ideas and they can help you avoid some of pitfalls they have encountered. It is really nice if opportunity has a chat room or message board so that you can get ideas on how to start, how to promote and advertise, and how to respond to others as they join your business.
Potential-All above leads to this last quality I look for in a home based business. How great of a potential is there to make money in business? After all, that is bottom line, isn’t it, to make money?
Your Gut Feeling- Don’t forget your most important tool-your common sense. If something doesn’t seem right, you need to back away until you get all your questions answered. First and foremost, you have to believe in opportunity and what it offers before you can sell it to others. Make sure to get a handle on what is going on before you commit to it. Once you make that commitment, give yourself some time before you decide it won’t work.
Obviously, there are other things that you can look for. These are just some basic things to look for when trying to find just right work at home business to place your time and money into. But, I believe if you will use these basics as a starting point, you will be in good shape on making a decision.
