Today TaxMama hears from Andre in Houston, who tells us. “I read your article on Marketwatch with interest. I am out of work right now, about to give up looking for work, but was wondering about some of the home business opportunities you mention in your article.
Most of the “opportunities” I’ve come across are blatant scams. If you know or can recommend or suggest some or any that are legitimate, I would appreciate it.“
Sorry to see that you’re unemployed…Well, sort of. From people I’ve seen lose their jobs over the years, I’ve learned it really is a great opportunity to change the direction of your life.
Don’t look for a home business opportunity. Create one.
What do you do well? What do you best and LOVE doing?
Who can benefit from your guidance, services…or whatever?
Develop your product or service.
Find your market.
While there ARE many scams, some of the ‘scams’ you see out there, really are good opportunities, though. The people who sign on fail, because they expect the income to come flooding in without having to work to make it happen. Even Internet businesses require planning, dedication and time to succeed.
