Traditional gypsies have traveled around world for years running scams, taking people's money, and heading out of town faster than you can blink your eye. They normally offer "too good to be true" products, services, or investments that make you drool and have you dreaming of riches. The problem is, only part of what they say is true.
In Information Age, you have to beware of biz op gypsy. Along same lines as gypsy of old, biz op gypsies look to have you buy into their so-called "opportunity" so you can make hundreds of thousands of dollars with very little work.
Anybody who knows anything about Internet business will confirm in a heartbeat that life online is not effortless! While there are some quality business opportunities available, don't let visions of sunbathing by pool while - at same time - raking in thousands of dollars a day cloud your judgment.
When making your decision about which business opportunity to seriously consider, take following points into consideration.
1) Sounds Too Good To Be True - One of your first clues will be tales of how easy it is to get rich. "No work on your part," "The company does everything for you," and "Immediate rewards" are lines gypsies like to use. I'll tell you now, regardless of how good biz op is, you will still have to work to be a success. Be very wary of sales pitches that include statements above.
2) Ask Person: "What Have Been Your Experiences With This Company?" - Granted, good gypsies will tell you of all wonders they've performed with help of this company, and how easy their lives are now. That's great! But don't settle for lip service. Ask for proof. Commission check stubs bearing their names, receipts, or other hard documentation will help to back up their claims.
3) Contact Company Directly - The "home" company will be very aware of its "top sellers." If for some reason they are not, with salesperson's company ID number, you should be able to confirm everything supposed gypsy is saying. Better yet. Arrange a 3-way call with company, gypsy, and yourself.
