We'd all be millionaires if claims like one above were true. If you're looking for a business opportunity on web where scams feed on dreams and weaknesses of everyday people, thing to remember is to *take your time*. Good opportunities don't disappear overnight.
To investigate an opportunity, check out following:
__Do You Know EXACTLY What You'll Be Doing?
Have you ever read over a business opportunity and at end of article you think, 'But what am I SELLING?'
You're not alone. There are endless opportunities touted online as being cream of crop, best of best, ultimate money-making opportunity destined to give you freedom and flexibility you desire.
They just don't tell you HOW.
Don't send money for more information. If they're not upfront about what's involved in their opportunity, then run other way and don't look back.
__Can You Independently Find Others Who Are Successful?
Message boards are a fabulous source of first-hand information from people who have been there, done that. Ask for other people's experiences with an opportunity before you join. If you can find a number of people who have had good experiences, that's great. If you can't, and all you hear are negative comments, then learn from them: even if you doggedly pursue it and find one positive testimonial, it won't mean much if you've heard 20 other negative comments.
__How Long Has Opportunity Been Around?
New opportunities don't yet have a history of success. There is no way of knowing how well average person will do with them.
Don't worry about 'getting in on ground floor'; it's far better to have a solid history that shows a viable business opportunity.
__Are You Selling an Opportunity or a Product?
When focus is on earning income by signing up others, you're part of what's known as a 'pyramid scheme'. To be brief: they're illegal.
Every opportunity should allow you to earn an decent income by selling a product or service to customers. If it focuses primarily on recruitment, reconsider.
