So what does all this say about you? If your answers fell mostly into:
a. – What business you choose is not as important as who you choose to start a business with. You want to be sure that the person you get started with is very supportive and understands that your business is not necessarily a priority in your life but more of a hobby. You shouldn’t expect any big paychecks but you’ll probably make something here and there. If you enjoy what you are doing that’s all that matters.
b. – You can choose a business that satisfies your interest but make sure that is not the only qualification. The compensation plan has to make sense. And your support team should be able to show you other people who are making the kind of money you expect.
c. – There are only a handful of businesses that can realistically meet your expectations. Make sure you research the company thoroughly through credible sources (individual opinions on Google don’t count). When you choose one make sure you jump in with both feet. The support team you choose is critical. They need to be able to show you what to do and keep up with you.
