Now, the one thing that is probably blaring to you is that I left after only 3 and half months, which isn’t a long time to try and establish you and your opportunity, but I started realizing how I was going about promoting my work from home business, how I was the only one making any money on my team, and how everyone else who got in me wasn’t making a dime or having any success, and this bothered me. At that point, I stepped back and looked at the big picture, was it the home business opportunity itself, or was me and how I went about things and approached people and the system I had in place for my team (downline) to succeed along with me. And though I am not perfect or by any means an expert (especially after only 3 and half months) I realized that this business just wasn’t for me, and that the opportunity was holding me back and wasn’t allowing for me nor my team to reach their full potential. So that is why I decided to leave my first Network Marketing company, and joined the company that I will talk about in the “Featured Home Based Business Opportunity” which has become a VERY successful business in itself which I will describe the differences as to why I am succeeding so much quicker and faster than I ever did with my first home based business opportunity. But looking back and reflecting on my first year as a home based business entrepreneur, I have realized things that you need to take into consideration before spending your money on an opportunity that has so much hype built into it and sit down and really analyze the business itself especially if they are asking for a big upfront cost. And all things consider, despite having been burned by my first business opportunity choice, if you take the time to carefully analyze the opportunity and take into consideration about what I said in the previous sections of this website about your purpose and key factors before joining a home based business then you will have a better understanding of what is to be expected and how the opportunity could potentially pan out in the end. Because trust me, if your a new home based business seeker, I was in your place just about a year ago and didn’t analyze or do any searches for anything before spending well over $1,100 just to get started, you will be allot more prepared and your chances of being successful and truly earning that residual income or financial freedom that is advertised, you will see how amazing earning a secondary (or primary in my case) income can be through the home based business industry.
