Are You Buying a Job?


If you’re looking to get into business for yourself, stay-at-home or otherwise, make sure you’re not buying a job.

Right now there are a lot of business opportunities that requires you to make some type of financial investment upfront. Make sure you do your research so you’re not about to buy a job. What do I mean by “buying a job?”

Buying a job is where you put a lot of money upfront on a potential business opportunity only to find the promises made to you were over exaggerated. Then you find yourself out a substantial amount of money only to find that you’re making less money than you could with a normal job. In other words, you just bought yourself a job!

It’s fine to invest in a new business opportunity, don’t get me wrong, just make sure you do your research and due diligence about any new business opportunity. You don’t want to be out $20,000 or $50,000 or even $100,000 and find out the most you could make in this business opportunity is $35,000 a year or less. Get it?

Don’t fall for these business opportunities where you can work-at-home, not do anything, and make thousands of dollars if not millions of dollars your first year. Give me a break! There are legitimate opportunities where you can build a business to those dollar amounts, but overnight or within the first year? Not so much.

If you’re sick of working for companies and want to go into business for yourself, I highly encourage it, but make sure when you’re looking into different business opportunities they are legitimate. Find a business opportunity that you can be proud of and through time and hard work grow into a very successful enterprise. Otherwise, you will just be “buying a job” with a lot of additional headaches. I hope this helps.

Good luck to you!
