Are 'Blinders' Preventing You from Finding Real Opportunity?

Written by Angela Wu

Not so long ago, I was making my daily rounds to various message boards online that are dedicated to working from home. Alongsiderepparttar usual, 'Is this a scam?' questions was a disturbing post, which basically said:

'I've come to realize that everything's a scam, not just envelope stuffing, typing jobs and craft and assembly jobs, but also MLM and affiliate programs. They are all scams! I have tried them all and never made any money.'

What's even worse was that there were several people who wholeheartedly agreed.

The Internet, unfortunately, is rife with scams and shams about working from home. There is a huge market of people searching for a work-at-home career -- and plenty of others willing to take advantage of it in whatever way they can. It's no surprise, then, that so many people have been 'burned' by so-called 'opportunities'.

But let me say this: An opportunity is not necessarily a scam just because someone didn't make money.

Yes, you read that right. You see, there's no such thing as a 'one-opportunity-fits-all'. I know that many ofrepparttar 117576 opportunities you see online try to make it seem like 'anyone' can succeed... but it's just hype.

For example, Avon is a well-known and legitimate opportunity. Would everyone do well at it? Of course not. A dog-walking business is also a home-based opportunity. A reliable and experienced dog-lover may do well, but someone with a fear of dogs would not for obvious reasons. That doesn't makerepparttar 117577 opportunity a scam.
