Prior to joining any home business you want to have the following questions answered to your satisfaction.
1."How can I succeed with you? I could just as easily join with another company or another distributor in your company." What advantages would I have in working with you I typically wouldn't have with someone else?
2. Can you show me how to have customers attracted to me or do I have to chase down people and try to rope them into my business?
3. Exactly what level of support can you provide me to assist me in being successful?
Finding solutions for problems people have is what marketing is about. The majority of people in network marketing take the wrong approach to it because they try to exploit their product or opportunity disregarding what the customer really needs. Involvement will teach you the correct method of marketing this business. Knowing this, why are you thinking about a home-based business? Is there a problem you are needing to solve such as, job insecurity, low pay and finances and debt that your income cannot solve?
Next question to think about is what are you good at? What do you think are your strong points that would apply to being successful in business a trait that does or could make you more confident in speaking to others, because if you become involved we will enhance those points to make them advantages to the people you speak with.
For example are you organized, are you a good speaker, etc.
Next question is what do you think are your weak points, that could interfere with your business success? These may or may not be important - I tend to have people concentrate on their strong attributes rather than trying to improve on their weaknesses. Provided their weaknesses are not a major stumbling block to success.
You'll notice I didn't cover the typical stupid questions like, how much money do you have to invest in a home business, or how much time do you each week to spend in your business? Those aren't important questions right now.
First of all, you must go through steps to enhance your credibility, your ability to take charge, plus display an aura of seasoned experience to your home business.
