Finding The Right Business For You: 6 Key Criteria

It seems that more and more people are interested in setting up their own small or homebased business these days. Current figures indicate that, in the USA alone, there are over 25,000,000 people operating a home based business. And just in case you think that many of these businesses are run as hobbies, the figures show that over 5,000,000 of them have turnovers in excess of $100,000.Not all of these businesses are internet based of course but, if you are doing business on the web, then the world’s your oyster and you can multiply those US numbers many times. It’s also worth considering that those numbers represent people who are currently involved in their own homebased business. For each of those who already have their business up and running there will be another 4 or 5 who are “thinking about it” – just looking for the right opportunity.So given the huge number of people who want to run their own business, and given the phenomenal power of the internet as a communications/advertising medium, it’s hardly surprising that you are continually presented with business opportunities as you surf the net – is it?Websites, pop-ups and pop-unders advertising your road-to-riches abound – not to mention all those email messages that somehow manage to squirm past your spam filter with monotonous regularity.Of course, a lot of these so called opportunities are complete nonsense. Some of them are fanciful notions conceived by people with no real idea about business. Some of them are out and out scams. Some are completely illegal. Others are genuine business opportunities which, although they would work well for others, just aren’t right for you.However, hidden in amongst the hype, the lies and the incredible dreams, there are some very genuine opportunities that could truly change your life. You just need to know what to look for.There is absolutely no point investing in a business opportunity just because it has a nice, professional looking website, or because the sales letters/emails are well written. Both of these might stimulate you to investigate further, but they’re not enough on their own.You certainly shouldn’t get involved with something just because some guru tells you it’s the next big thing – no matter how successful or famous the guru may be.There are 6 key criteria to be used when assessing a potential business opportunity. Apply these rigorously and you will avoid nasty surprises – and you may very well find the perfect business for you.
The company. You need to be working with people who can be trusted, and who will be around to pay you in the future.
The product. A good product is essential. Ask yourself if would you buy it if you weren’t a distributor.
The payment or commission scheme. What do you get paid for? When do you get paid? How do you get paid?
The sales method. Are you comfortable with the sales method? can you produce your own mobile porn adverts?
The level of admin required. This should be low. You milf porn don’t want to waste your time on paperwork do you?
The cost – both black porn startup and running.
Is it affordable? Will others be prepared to invest when it comes time to build cartoon porn your own team?Evaluate the above points dispassionately before you commit yourself to anything. If you find it difficult to get enough information to make an assessment then that tells you all you need to know. Avoid any opportunity that won’t give you the facts up front.

The Tale of a King and His Wealth

Once lived a great king who was getting old and wanted to retire. One day he announced that all his personal wealth would be distributed to the public. However one would have to earn his share as the king did not want the wealth to go to unworthy.His wealth would be in the seven stories of his palace. One might take whatever one wished, he announced. The word spread fast and people gathered. No one wanted to miss this opportunity of getting rich.The entrance was opened and people eagerly rushed in. Presented to them were common items of pottery, glass and earth. They checked every place. Nothing else was there. People got disappointed. This was not what they had expected. Many left cursing.Others decided to try second floor. As they moved there they found things which were costlier but nothing which could be called wealth. Many left again. It was wastage of time after all. The king either had gone mad or played a bad jokeRest of them pushed themselves to the next level through a passage that was narrower and steeper. Here displayed were some coins of lesser value. Discouraged quite a number left again. I was clear now that the king had really played a joke. There was no wealth to be found.Few who were encouraged enough resolved to go to further. They had to walk a path harder than previous. Those who could not tread returned. Only a handful reached fourth storey and were rewarded with silver coins.Joyfully many stuffed and left. Thank God! The day was not wasted on some misadventure. They had come from far. They were tired now. They did not want to go further. They had work at their homes too.However, ten people decided to go ahead. It was a very difficult journey. The was almost vertical and very rough. Only four could reach next level. Others left, not being able to continue. Those who reached found gold coins in abundance. Two decided to end here and left with gold happily.Two went further on a path that was almost impossible to walk. They did manage to reach sixth floor. It was a hall full of diamonds of finest quality.Pleased with this one started filling his bags whereas other went into deep thoughts.”What happened? You don’t want this” asked the one who was filling.”I wonder what could be next!”"What else do you want? This is more than enough for seven lifetimes. Moreover I can’t see any doorway” Other man was astonished.”But there is one floor left” said the man who was determined and began his search.”You have gone mad” said other and left with diamonds.There was actually no door. The man searched every corner but none was to be found. That was until he saw roof and a rope hanging too small to reach. He jumped and failed.He tried repeatedly without success till he could not jump.There has to be some way, he thought as he lay exhausted. There must be some way.It was then an idea struck him. He made a heap of diamonds to reach and pulled the rope. A doorway appeared in one of the walls. Beyond that was a beautiful ladder. As he climbed a hand pulled him to seventh floor.The king himself stood there “Welcome O worthy one! I can retire in peace now”The man was appointed as king next day.Nature too offers us a fortune of wealth that we can earn. Everybody wishes to be rich but not all are ready to fully walk the path that leads to. Most of us who start get discouraged by initial unsuccessful attempts and stop. Others remain satisfied with the nickels they are offered and leave the journey.Rare ones have the determination to find actual wealth.We can stop at silver or go beyond diamonds.How far would you go?Copyright © 2005 Arun Pal Singh

The Invisible Opportunity

How would you feel if you had been searching desperately for something, some magic solution to a problem, and come to find out it was right there in front of you the whole time– you just failed to see it?For many searching for a way to work from home, this is exactly what they’re doing.There is a common misconception out there that’s preventing a lot of people from realizing their dreams of working at home. Is it holding you back too?Time and time again I hear this sentiment, “I don’t want to start a business. I just want to do clerical work for a company” or, “I see so many opportunities, but they’re all scams because they charge a fee”.Now, before you say “well, isn’t that true? Shouldn’t there never be a fee?” realize that there is a big difference between a telecommute job offer and a business opportunity. And I hate to tell you this, but companies just don’t hire teleworkers to do clerical work for them. There are plenty of telecommute jobs out there, but they are for highly specialized skills that require specific training. If you have a knack for sales, there are no shortage of companies that will hire you to do cold-calling from your home office.So, that leaves us with two options: To get the training that’s required for a telecommute job (programming courses at a local college, for example), or to start a home business.For some reason, the idea of taking courses or going back to school is usually met with resistance. “I can’t afford it” or “I don’t have time” are typical responses. But think of it this way: Your goal is to land a telecommute job. All telecommute jobs require specialized training or skills. Doesn’t it make sense to obtain the training that’s required for the job you want? Isn’t it worth investing in some classes if it means that you will be qualified for telecommute jobs?Ok, so maybe you’re not interested in working in sales or becoming a programmer. The other option is to look at a business opportunity. This suggestion is not usually greeted with enthusiasm. And this really is the issue at hand: Why not a business opportunity?This is where so many people overlook the chance to work from home; the idea that if an opportunity charges a fee, it’s a scam. It’s a common misconception that stands in the way of many a would-be home worker.The truth is that almost all business opportunities require an investment. You can’t expect to start a business without some expenses, can you? The really exciting thing is that with the Internet, it’s possible to start out with a much smaller investment than in the brick-and-mortar world.The important thing is to be able to discern the legitimate offer from the scams. There are some simple checkpoints that can help you to determine if a business opportunity is legitimate.–First, look at the product. Is there a product? There should be. The Federal Trade Commission considers a company to be crossing the line into pyramid scheme territory when all marketing efforts are geared toward getting others to sign up. There should be a focus on the product first, recruiting others should be secondary.–Check with the Better Business Bureau to see if there have been complaints filed and if so, how were they handled. Remember that it’s not out of the ordinary for a company to have had a few complaints. It’s whether or not they were resolved to the customer’s satisfaction that matters.–Do some research to see if there are any articles/discussions pertaining to the company in question. This can be useful in picking up news articles that could alert you to potential problems (ABC Company Hit With More Class-Action Suits!) or positive feedback (CEO Joe Owner Receives Award For His Company’s Philanthropic Achievements).With effort and determination, business opportunities can be very lucrative. They can also be a stepping-stone to earning the extra money you need to take some courses or to finance your own start-up.Give the invisible opportunity another look. It may be the key to your office at home.

The Art of Being Specific Encourages Focus

Being specific has often been difficult for me. I like to dream big and incorporate everything all at once. That is why going from a hobby to a career with Rothline Entertainment (http://www.rothline.com) was more difficult than it needed to be. Rothline Entertainment debuted in August 2003 specifically focused on marketing computer and video games and PC software.However, it took me a while to focus on the specifics. Fortunately, I had the help and advice of my parents, siblings, and spouse. I wanted Rothline Entertainment to start out big; offering video games, movies on DVD, card and board games, and anything remotely related to entertainment. My ideas were overwhelming and deciding where to start was difficult.Like any new business with a limited budget I needed to start small, be specific, and be focused. I had to start brainstorming and writing down ideas. I had to focus on what I can do now not what I want to do later. Before I wrote everything down and began to be more specific, I felt stressed and nervous about starting the Rothline e-commerce site. Once I was able to get the specifics written down I began to feel more relaxed.I know it has been said many times before but it does not hurt to say it again; “the art of being specific encourages focus.” This means that once you can specifically write down you goals in manageable steps you can then be focused on following through on those goals.I start out each day writing down specifically what I need to do that day. As long as keep doing that it makes my days less stressful and I accomplish more. It has been difficult to start and keep that habit going but the benefits have been very rewarding. I can tell when I have not been following my written goals for the day because I feel stressed and lost. I remind myself to go back to my list and start focusing on accomplishing the goals I have listed.Being specific helps one to look at the small pieces of the puzzle. Puzzles as you know can be overwhelming when you 1000 pieces scattered about on a table. But by taking a look at one piece and then a second piece, one can then being to specifically identify where each puzzle piece goes.Being specific is a discipline that most people can learn and use. To start and run a business take a specific look at you advertising plan, marketing plan, budget plan, etc. You don’t have to take a look at all of these elements at once and if you do you will be overwhelmed. When you are overwhelmed you are stressed.
