Home Business New York City-Home Based Business – Wannabe's Survival Guide Part 1

You've decided to make a huge change in your life and jump intodirect sales with an online home based business. After lookingat the literally hundreds of websites offering many differentproducts and a range of potential income levels; you're ready toinvest a chunk of your hard-earned cash; you've bought into thiscompany's marketing philosophy and you're ready to set the worldon fire. Congratulations. The good news is – it's all possible.The not-so good news states the odds are absolutely against youbeing even remotely successful. Over 97% of folks who start anonline network marketing business spend far more than they evermake and disappear well before they reach their firstanniversary.

So how do you avoid becoming another nasty statistic? There aresome easy to use guidelines that will dramatically increase yourchances of not only surviving but thriving in the competitiveworld of online sales and marketing. Here are three of the mostimportant:

CHECK'EM OUT. You'd hope this is self explanatory but you'd besurprised. If it's written on a website it must true - right? Ifyou believe this slap yourself with something dull and heavybecause you're already well on the way to joining the 97% Club.Before choosing a company to invest in, for god's sake do yourdue diligence and check them out thoroughly. If your potentialsponsor is pressuring you to make a quick decision - it'sabsolutely in your best interest to take a pass (at leasttemporarily until you get the facts). Any consultant who'soffering a real and credible opportunity will encourage you tocheck out their opportunity thoroughly and make an informeddecision before you join their online home based business.

THE PROOF IS IN THE PRODUCTS. Absolutely check out the productsyou'll be marketing. They MUST BE able to stand on their own twofeet. Products without credibility might work in the short termbut any business you may be able to generate on the promise of"serious money to be made by passing them onto the next sucker"will quickly dry up and disappear. If what you're being asked tobuy and sell is hollow and insignificant - run, do not walk awaybecause chances are the opportunity also lacks long-termcreditability. Again, a professional consultant offering you alegitimate opportunity will encourage you to check it all outbefore you come on board.

Of course there is another side to asking you to do your duediligence before joining. If I contact you, give you my pitchand you jump in immediately without wanting to check it out,chances are you're going to be high maintenance pain in thebutt. The one member of my team who takes up hours of my timebecause they want everything to be easy, don't understand butalso don't want to put in the time to learn. So it's not allabout you after all.

MENTORING MATTERS. To have even the slightest chance ofsurvival, you absolutely must align yourself with others who arealready successful in this business. If you can't do that, yourchances of success plummet like Enron stock prices. You willabsolutely need the experience of a mentor or preferably a teamof mentors. Don't be shy about questioning your sponsoringconsultant on what they and the company can offer you. When youresearch your company, check to see what training is available.All legitimate direct sales companies offer regular training(usually by phone) so ask to join a training call. Try yourabsolute best to learn the culture of the company you'repossibly about to join. If the training is fluffy andunprofessional - keep looking because you're probably onto aloser.

In summary, there are literally hundreds of home based businessopportunities currently on the web. Many are at best, simply notrealistic but if you make an obligation to yourself to researchthem before you hand over your money, you will find there arethoroughly legitimate home based business offers that can leadto a wonderful lifestyle and income for you and your family.
