Most of the people who start a mail order or network marketing business begin with little or no experience. Most people want to know: what's the best business to start that will make the most money. This is not an easy question to answer, hower, if you plan to be among the tens of thousands of people who join this industry each year, please allow me to share my experience with you.
LET'S BEGIN AT THE BEGINNING
Let's face it, most people who want to start an MLM or mail order business are usually having some kind of financial problems i.e. being laid off from a job, losing your job. There is also the single parent who needs an income, but wants to supplement their fixed income, the person who may have a decent wage paying job, but found themselves in a lot of debt and need extra money to pay off their debts.
What do all of these people have in common? They all need extra money and even though they want to start a business, they don't have a lot of money to invest.
Since mail order and network marketing are relatively inexpensive businesses to start from home, these are the businesses that most people who don't have a lot of money to invest make an effort to start.
DOING YOUR HOMEWORK
Many people rush into their networking or mail order business without doing any real research on the business that they intend to start. This is usually the first crucial mistake that the beginner makes. Learning all that you can about the business that you intend to start will save time, money and setbacks. The fact is, if you don't educate yourself in the beginning, you will severely limit your chances of succeeding in your own business. People are usually in a hurry to get started and they don't want to take the time to do a lot of reading research.
