Having been scammed myself multiple times, I have had my share of learning experiences and finally decided to do something about it. So why not create a website that reviews and locates only the best work at home opportunities out there. Furthermore, I want to pass on some wisdom that I've learned over the years to those of you searching for a home business that is legitimate.
I'm not much of a writer, so I'll keep this article short and to the point. Below are steps to take that will ensure your safe passage on the Internet as you journey to that home business that works for you.
1. Do Research I know it sounds like a duh, but surprisingly many people do not research a company or opportunity before jumping in. It's ok to be trusting and have faith in humanity, but the truth is that there are selfish people who will take advantage of you if you're too naive. So do what I call your due diligence. It should be as follows: a. How long has the company been in business? b. Do the individuals involved have a prior record of complaints in another business? c. How many complaints and how recent are there/they? Complaints do not mean it's a scam, look into the nature of the complaints, if any, and decide if this is acceptable to you. It's like reading reviews on a digital camera, some will not like the lack of zoom and rate it low as a result. But you may not care about zoom. d. Do you get a response when inquiring directly to their email or phone? e. Does their website list a physical address? f. Has anyone complained of the company not honoring their return policy?
2. Only Pay What You're Willing To Lose As scary as that may sound, it's really just good logic. In any investment or venture you should only invest what you can lose. You don't know if a company, even with a good rep, is going to suddenly disappear. Don't depend on that company being around forever.
3. Be Ready To Work Everything that will make you money requires some amount of effort on your part. Whether it's educating yourself to make wise decisions as in stocks, or doing daily work that is necessary in a home business. Don't purchase a how to or guide if you are not going to work at it and commit to making money.
That's my quick step by on avoiding Work At Home scams. It is definitely possible to create real wealth from home on the Internet. Just make sure you choose the best programs, apply the education, and commit to making it work. So best of luck to all of you!
