What questions to ask when making a decision for a home based business

When searching for a home business opportunity, be sure to first, get the facts and see if it's a good fit for you. Some important questions to ask when looking to partner with a home business are:

  1. Gather as much information as you can.
  2. Find a business with a solid track record - no less than 15 years. 
  3. Is company continually being awarded by prestigious institutions i.e BBB
  4. Be sure that the company is financially sound and is run by experienced managers and leaders.
  5. Be sure there is a real product, not just a gimmick.
  6. Be sure there is a high customer reorder rate.
  7. Check if people make their money from sign-up fees or inventory loading because it might be illegal.
  8. Ask yourself "Does this make sense?"
  9. Ask yourself, "Is there any substance to their claims?" Be wary if they will not substantiate their income and product claims in writing.
I wish you lots of business success and welcome your feedback!
