|The Pros and Cons of a Home Based Business: the REAL Story!|
Hundreds of people a day enter into the world of home based businesses. There are many "opportunities" out there, and you don't have to look very hard to find them.
Chances are good someone will approach you, maybe even someone you know. The offer they make will be very inviting. They will tell you all the benefits of working from home. There are many.
And they are REAL. If you find the right company to start up with.
Do people actually get a check in the mail? Really?
Yep, they sure do.
And after they get their check,....can they actually SPEND it?
It seems like only yesterday.....
It was the last day of the month.
I had already called 99% of my extensive "customer list".
I knew chances of me getting ahold of the last few were slim, because this was the night of the first high school football game of the season.
No one was home to take my call.
I still needed almost $200.00 in product orders to make my monthly quota to maintain the level I had slaved and worked to build.
My palms were sweaty.
My stomach was in knots.
My hand trembled as I dialed the next number. It was my last chance....
"Hello," Oh my gosh! Someone answered!
"Hi Aunt Jane! How are you?"
"Hi, we're doing OK over here. What's up?"
"Well, I'm getting my monthly order ready, and I was wondering if you needed any more XYZ Super Soap."
"Oh, I'm sorry, Honey, but that stuff will last me for months. I just don't need any more right now."
"Would you be interested in trying our new and improved High Energy Super Vitamin Peanut Butter Instant Wonder Shake?"
"Oh, I don't think so. I don't do enough any more to be needing much energy. But I can mention it to your cousin Jake. He's been lifting weights here lately. He might like to try it. He'll be home next Tuesday. He's in Chicago."
"Well, thank you Aunt Jane! I'll be sure and give him a call next week after he's home."
"All right Dear. I'll talk to you later."
"OK Aunt Jane. See you soon! Bye."
My last hope for this month. I'll just have to order another case of Vitamin C to make my minimum order. I guess I'll pay the electric bill with my next paycheck from my real job.
That was my experience with a company that I was with for several years and had a large "downline". We got a large check every month from the company. I would use it to help pay for my minimum monthly quota (which was equally large!). And when I finally gave up and got out so I could pay my electric bill on time, I had a number of cases of product sitting in my basement.
The first home based business we were with was very short lived. My largest, and I think, ONLY check was for under $3 and that was after a few months, a few people under us, and several back orders that were never delivered.
Now, I only have to order what ever I want for myself and my family. I feel good about being able to refer other people to high quality products with excellent customer service. There is an empty bottle money back guarantee for any reason.
And now, if I want, when I get the check from the company, I can pay my electric bill with it.
The company we were refered to 5 years ago is a leader in nutritional research and developement. The household and personal care products are safe for you, your children, your pets, and your environment. This business employs a unique and simple consumer direct marketing system that eliminates a lot of the stress associated with some other home based opportunities.
