These are Extremely
IMPORTANT Questions You Must Ask and Then Give
Yourself an "Honest" Answer!
Please, Please, PLEASE...do yourself a
huge favor and do NOT get caught up in all the hype of any
company. I see this everyday and I'm blown-away seeing normally
intelligent people saying some of the craziest stuff, like:
you are making $15K a month, and your company and products are
rock solid, BUT, you don't know how incredible this start-up is
and who's running it, bla bla, bla."
Just answer the questions
below, honestly -
meaning you throw out all the hype,
especially from the product driven (most products have a
much higher overhead than "digital") "start-ups" and
THINK each answer thru. Then
score the business and decide what you need to do "after" that.
their products or services? (Be honest now!)
Is this an
established and well funded company? (A "start-up" in
some occasions (if well funded and with great management,
products and compensation plan) can be a great opportunity,
however, it's not usually a good
choice the majority of the time).
Would I be
proud to offer these products or services to people I know?
If I decide
to join, will I “commit” to working this business hard for at
least 18 months?
use this (these) product(s) / service(s)? (In most
cases, it should appeal to the masses)
people want it (them)?
product or service
highly consumable? (regular "repeat" orders are
their product / service "now?” (not what will they have in the future).
What is the
competition's price? Quality?
Compensation plan? Marketing tools? Etc.
product or service as good or better than the competition?
competition have a “business opportunity” attached it?
Is the cost
to get involved reasonable?
see the value immediately?

have to be "talked into it" because it's new or different?
products or service "proven" to be superior? (proof given
if the answer is yes)
products or services proprietary?
products or services make my life easier, more fun or better
make people feel or look better? (Emotional attachment. A
party” documentation support this product or service?
the product and income testimonials from distributors and users
powerful, yet believable?
What is the
upline like? (Will there be support and how good is it?)
get "excited" about these products or services?
of start up and on-going “training” do they offer? (Is
there a cost for it?)
How are they promoted?
How do I
market it? (Do they provide SIMPLE marketing systems
“anybody” can use?)
Who are the
management? (What do I know about them?)
of money is behind the company? (Joining a new company can
be "financial suicide").
management have a big vision and realistic expansion
they located? (fast distribution of a physical
product is most desirable)
Is it a
"need" or a "want" or both? (a "want"
can be easier to sell many times).
money are part-time people making?
money are the leaders making?
under me make more money than me? (based on how hard they
can people have their monthly costs covered?
do they pay commissions and bonuses? (Daily and weekly are
most desired these days)
Can I work
hard and retire in 1 to 5 years with a large monthly residual
income for life?
business willable to my family?
they occasionally add "fresh" new products or
Do they update their
websites, marketing materials, etc. occasionally
or when necessary?
answers above, do I believe this company be around in 5 years from now? (Remember,
95% or more will most likely NOT).
BOTTOM-LINE.......Are you prepared to lose your time,
hope, integrity, money and possibly even friends…if you choose a
so-called “hot - new” start-up business opportunity that goes bad? I
certainly hope not. Statistically new start-ups have about
a 90% chance of failure within two years? Less than 1 out
of every 10 new companies have a chance to make it. Sure,
they all sound appealing at first. That's easy to do,
especially on the Internet. Please don't get caught up in all the hype (even lies in
cases). Will the company you're evaluating (or involved
with now) "really" provide the "Time" AND "Financial" FREEDOM
you desire and help you reach your dreams and goals in a
realistic time? Think HARD about it, now
rather than later.
are important concerns for me as I don't want egg on my face if
the company goes under. I want to be involved in the most
solid and lucrative business opportunity available. I want
something that is proven, established, exciting, and can create
a lucrative "immediate" and "residual" income for me and my organization for
years to come. I want something of high value that people can make
money from early on. An opportunity that they can commit to it because it's
something they believe in and are making money with. I'm tired
of the little "deals" everybody keeps starting up and want
"only" a powerhouse company to finish the race with. No more
games for me, life is too short. Please,
stay away from 95% of new "start-up" opportunities,
especially the ones involving "products" since they usually
carry a substantial overhead.
They can easily be a big waste of your time and money, usually. And
remember, "time" is something you can't get back. They can
hurt your integrity, and friendships. They can shatter your
hopes and dreams. Statistics prove that most of them "will"
fail. Most (certainly not all) are total garbage! There are a
few exceptions and
those should be well financed and managed, or of a "digital" nature where
the overhead is usually substantially less than a product
company. Just make sure to do your homework "before" you get
involved in any new business venture.
