5 Questions to Ask BEFORE Starting an Online Home Business

When I found myself at home without work and looking at job opportunities on the internet I was a bit overwhelmed. I had been self-employed most of my life or at the very least an independent contractor. Working by myself/for myself didn’t both me. Working in a new environment caused me some concern..

The internet is a big place with lots of ideas and some bad people. Tending to be more on the naive side I had to purpose to be a little skeptical and ask the hard questions. Also working against me was all the rabbit trails that begged me to follow. It is very easy to get distracted on the internet and lose focus of what you started to do.

That is why I had to stop, examine why I was doing what I was doing, how I was going to do it and when I was going to do it. I also had to ask most importantly with whom was I going to pursue an online opportunity.

Those are not the five questions though they are a mighty good starting place. The five questions you need to ask BEFORE starting an online Home Business are these:

1. Does this company over promise and under deliver or do they properly under promise and over deliver?

2. Are they realistic about income projections?

3. Are they prepared to walk with you the whole way because they have been where you are?

4. Do they have multiple streams of income instead of just one product or idea?

5. Does your “spidy sense” give you the OK?

I know that last question might seem silly to you but there is something to be said for gut instincts. Trust them. If you feel you are being lied to or misled or taken advantage of by a company who will want more FROM you than they are willing to give TO you then back away.

Find a company that is there to serve and by serving they make an income. Trust me, there are a few of those out there. I found one that does just that. You can plug in with me for this incredible online journey by going to: http://www.danspluginsite.com.

I look forward to figuring out this online stuff together.
