Do Home Business Opportunities Really Work?

Jul 23, 2008
It seems like there are 2 sides to home business opportunities. One side states that home business opportunities are scams, while another side testifies that the home business opportunities do work, and have worked for them. The question is do they work or not? In this short article, you will find my best unbiased information, which should serve you.

First off it is probably best to give my own biases, because we all have biases. I have been in home business opportunities before, I have seen them work, have seen success, and also have seen the detrimental sides of home based business opportunities. This has given me a more open view of why many don't find what they are looking for in a home business opportunity.

There are some home business opportunities that are scams. They try to sell you on the get rich quick method and want you to make money. Often these opportunities are packaged in MLM opportunities. This bad name caused many companies to transform from MLM to Network Marketing.

The first thought comes - pyramid scheme. However, this thought is judging books by the cover and not by the contents. On a personal note, I believe the information that a home business opportunity can give you on how to create a successful business is worth its weight in gold, but people don't see this benefit.

We have to get out of the box for a minute, and consider where this failure happens. Blame is a terrible thing, and when things go wrong we can go either 2 ways. We can either look at our own errors or place blame elsewhere. After all it is much easier to do that.

The fact is that 90% of businesses fail in the first few years. This is a shocking figure, and there are many places that will say NO - don't start a business, you will fail. It seems apparent. In fact tell anyone you want to go in business, and many will give you such negative talk. This is not just apparent in business, it happens in MLM, all home business opportunities and anywhere in life.

The truth is that many people want the instant gratification. Most of the places that advertise get rich quick go back to that need. Instead the merit should be on how much action you are willing to take. Are you willing to put more effort then you would in a $25k per year job? Most people think they have to put in that amount of effort to make the $100k per year or even a million per year.

Becoming a doctor takes many years, and it takes many years to even be able to heal someone with health issues. Though home business opportunities don't need that long till getting the first results, many people don't hold such a view. All professions need years of dedicated effort, and if you can put that effort in you can succeed in a home business opportunity.
