It’s 5:30 AM. You hear that dreadful sound coming from your alarm clock. You get out of bed and go take a shower. Then you help get the kids up and ready for school. You rush around the house trying to get yourself ready for work.

You barely have time for a bowl of cereal. You figure you’ll grab a cup of coffee on the way to work.

Oh no! Now you’re worrying about your ride to work. If you don’t hit the road in ten minutes or less, you’re commute gets twenty minutes longer – making you late. Again.

As usual, you arrive a few minutes late, hoping that no one notices. You start your day by sifting and sorting through all of your emails.

Next, you look over your schedule for the day. Meetings, paperwork, more meetings, and more paperwork. You are starting to wonder if there is any way you could leave all of this behind, but still be able to take care of yourself and your family.

I can tell you that the answer to that question is a definite yes.

Because, you see, the internet has changed the game…forever.

It has created a level playing field. It provides us with the opportunity to run our business from wherever we want, whether that’s the comfort of our own home, or on a beach somewhere.

If you are looking for work from home where you will get a steady paycheck and have someone else deciding what you are worth by paying you for your time, rather than results, then it might not make any sense for you to continue reading on.

But, if you want the opportunity to have real financial freedom, real time freedom, you should listen to everything I am about to tell you.

First, I just want to touch upon a couple of basic, yet key, concepts.

Of all the people you know, what percentage of them are on the internet every day? My guess is it’s a pretty good size number.

That’s exactly why the internet has changed things forever. More and more people are spending more time online every week, every month and every year.

Each year, more people shop online.

More people are looking to the internet to get the news.

More poeple are joining social networks each year.

I’m sure you know that Facebook gets the second highest amount of traffic on the internet. As of right now, Google is the only site that gets more traffic. All of us are spending more time on the internet. Period.

The internet can provide you the opportunity to get in front of all of these people. This is why learning the skills necessary to market online is so important and can provide you with both time and financial freedom.

“Job security” is the other concept I would like to talk about. I remember back to when I first started in this business. Many people thought I was a little crazy.

Some people were worried I was getting involved in some kind of scam or something. The fear of the unknown can make people feel that way, but nothing could have been farther from the truth.

Unfortunately, network marketing is widely misunderstood and many people make snap judgements based on things they’ve heard from others. Sometimes, in my experience, they don’t even know why they think it’s so bad!.

The truth is that I have more security because no one can take away what I have built. No one can say to me tomorrow “I’m sorry, we are going to have to let you go. Cutbacks. Sorry.”

I don’t have to spend my valuable time going to a job I hate and then worry about losing it. Of course I understand that there is a sense of security in a steady paycheck, and many aren’t prepared to take that leap of faith. It scares them, as it would probably anyone.

However, if you are still reading this you must believe and trust deep down that there is a better way. There is a way to work from home and not have to live paycheck to paycheck.

You can have a legitimate home business. You can spend more time with your family. You can set your own schedule. You can take vacations when you want.

How To Recognize A Legitimate Work From Home Opportunity

Trust me. I know just how many opportunities you come across on the internet every day. Who can you believe? What’s real? What’s legitimate?

Here are some guidelines that will help you when trying to find the right opportunity for you.

1. Do you have to spend any money? You know the saying, “You get what you pay for;” well, if you pay nothing, guess what you are going to get?

Many people ironically feel that if they have to spend any money to start a business online, it’s a scam. I do not and will never understand this mentality.

Take this thought process offline. What business are you aware of that doesn’t require any capital to get started?

Exactly.

I’m not suggesting to just give your money to anyone who asks for it, but be prepared to invest some money and that doesn’t meant it’s not legitimate. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

2. Are there promises of tens of thousands of dollars in less than 30 days with hardly any work involved? Big red flag here. First of all, it’s rare to come off the street and be a success in 30 days.

The network marketing industry does in fact provide a wonderful platform where you can make a lucrative income in a short period of time. However, you will actually have to do work, and be prepared for it to take longer than 30 days for you to be able to quit your job.

3. Don’t be scared off if you are required to fill out an application. You should welcome this one. It means that the particular opportunity you are interested in doesn’t just allow “anyone” into their program.

Don’t necessarily shun this, because it can be good for you. This means they are serious entrepreneurs looking for qualified prospects, and this will help ensure you will attract more qualified consultants in the future onto your team.

4. When you are looking for a mentor who will be your sponsor, look for someone who is a leader and who is serious about this business. Try to find someone you feel comfortable with and connect with, and who will be there to guide you and help you with your business.

Probably the final bit of advice I can offer is to not only do your due diligence, but also trust your gut. Whether your gut is saying something or someone is really good or really bad, it’s usually right.

Don’t forget to always do your due diligence every step of the way though. Online, you will find many legitimate work from home opportunities that will provide you with the ability to start an online business. Be open-minded and don’t be afraid to learn about something new.

You may be surprised where it could lead you.
