Home Based Business Opportunities Abound On The Internet

Looking for a home business opportunity on the internet these days is a pretty involved process. That is, if you don’t know how to eliminate 90% of the junk that’s out there and pick among the home business opportunities that actually have merit and track records.

What works?

Information sales, auctions, hard goods that can be shipped, books, reports, network marketing, you name it!

There are just certain types of home business opportunities that you want to stay away from. Those are things where someone you don’t know from Adam is making guarantees that are way too good to be true. Anyone who makes it sound like money is dripping from the internet for you to simply catch in a bucket is a liar and a thief.

You will never have success with home business opportunities that promise you that you will never have to work, or make things sound too easy. Take it from a professional, working online or offline with a home business opportunity is work.

But home business opportunities have perks that are better than any job you could ever imagine.

You work for yourself and answer to no one but your customers You can make as much or as little as you want You can work as much or as little as you want You can take time off whenever you want You can make your schedule totally flexible You can work on the internet and work from anywhere in the world You can save money on clothes you had to buy for jobs You can save money on gas, car maintenance and insurance You can get great tax breaks owning your own business Travel and other expenses can be tax deductible

The list of great things I can think of about a home business goes on and on. Here are some of the things that can be a drain on you with a home business opportunity:

You can’t leave your business at certain critical times of growth Your family will sometimes become a distraction when you are working at home Your bed is in the same place as your work There’s no boss to keep you honest about your hours There’s no boss to keep you on your focus to complete critical tasks No one will do the work for you Customers can be a pain sometimes The money in the beginning can come in sporadically (people who cannot handle any kind of financial stress should definitely keep their jobs until their home business opportunity starts paying the bills regularly).

No pain no gain. No risk, no profit. No investment, no return. A home business opportunity is like any other business. Don’t let anyone tell you differently!

But for those of us that thrive on making our own way in the world, who love that there is no limit to what we can make, and no one but our spouses to tell us what to do, there is nothing under the sun better than a home business!

Common Internet Marketing Mistake Can Devastate Your Business

One of the most interesting sales people I ever talked to was this network marketing and direct sales master named Glenn Turner.

Not necessarily because he gave a lot of good advice on selling, ethics and dealing with people (he is a true pro at these things), but because one thing he said is probably going to be saving me, my family and my Internet marketing business from putting up with a lot of grief later on down the line.

In fact, this secret he told me is something I believe every single Internet marketer should take to heart and consider from here on out.

And that is, not messing around when it comes to refunding people’s money.

Even if you know you’re in the right and they didn’t follow their end of the agreement, and even if you know you are following the law to the letter.

Why?

Because you simply never know who you’re dealing with.

Especially if you are selling to people on the Internet.

For example, Glenn told me about how one of his business opportunity companies he had back in 1967 was accused of being a “lottery” and shut down.

Now, Glenn was doing everything by the book and legally he had everything in line.

But what happened was a couple of people had gotten into his business, and it didn’t work for them, and they wanted their money back, even though they didn’t qualify for a refund and Glenn had done nothing wrong.

And so, doing what most people would do, he didn’t give it back to them.

Only problem was, these two guys were both Attorney Generals and so it wasn’t hard for them to use their influence and power to have Glenn shut down.

The point of the story?

You never know who you’re selling to.

The obnoxious guy with the “hotmail” email address and phony name who is demanding his money back could be connected in ways that can have a very negative impact on you, your business and your life.

And so I now almost always give refunds. Even when I know I’m right.

Yes, there are exceptions to this (I’m not a pushover by any means), but for the most part, I believe in giving fast and immediate refunds.

Not only does it build a good image for you as a trusted, honest person, but it can save you a lot of grief later on if someone really wants to take their anger out on you by trying to sue you or report you to some “alphabet” federal regulatory agency.
