Choosing a Business

When choosing a direct sales company to join ask your self:

Can I afford the start up kit fee?

Can I see myself using these products every month a year from now?

Can I see my self still telling others about them every month a year from now?
What product or service are they selling? (there must be one or the other)

Can I afford the ongoing cost of the business? (web hosting, inventory, prints, postage, ads)

What is the companies reputation? Can I be proud of that?

Is there a monthly minimum cost/fee? Can I afford it? What do I get for it?
Is there training available? Offline, online, or in person?
Am I willing to spend time every day 5 days a week to make this business work?
Am I willing to take the time to build business relationships and obtain customers?
Am I willing to make follow up customer service and sales calls for this company?
Am I willing to take the time to do events/parties/classes/fairs for this business?

Do I have the cash flow to get me through the first year?

RECOMMENDED: Are you looking for a work from home company you can trust. I will not endorse a company that I have not used and participated in. I am happy to recommend the Send out Card Company! In fact. I joined them. If you would like to see what they are about go to and watch a 3 minute video and then send out 2 cards on me. Then go to and watch the video on the opportunity! Let let me know if I can answer your questions.
