Most people find out the hard way that a large percentage of the sites out there are not real business opportunities. Scammers are popping up in record numbers. It is easy to fall prey to someone that understands a little about setting up a web page with pictures of fancy cars, piles of money and lavish homes. Maybe you have plopped down some of that hard earned cash on one of those deals, only to get burned.
Just like everything in life it is always a good idea to become a student of the industry. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Here are a few tips when looking at an opportunity.
Do not get involved with start up companies. Most new businesses do not make it past their first year in business. If the opportunity is great now, it will be ten times better in a year or two. Legitimate companies have tangible products that are value priced.
