I’ve seen a lot of get rich quick scams lately. whether it’s because the economy is pitiful or the new year rushing at us, it’s hard to tell why there are so many lately. It could be that I’m just seeing more of them now than I did previously. I’ve had a lot more time the last month to check facebook and in general peruse the internet.
There is no way to honestly and ethically get rich quickly. Can you get rich working online, sure. Through hard work, planning and patience anything is possible. Does this mean you can’t try? by all means, try. Just remember the basics…
* Never pay for a pre-packaged business idea unless you can talk with several people who have already bought it and they can verify it’s for real. (meeting them in person would be ideal, but in this day and age it’s not always possible)
* Always do your research. Know what you want to accomplish and how you plan to accomplish it. It’s also good to know your budget and how you’re going to stay within it…but that’s another hurdle for another day.
* Be cautious and know your limits. If you aren’t comfortable selling, than a sales job probably isn’t going to work for you. If you’re not good at writing, than blogging for a living won’t make you happy. the whole point of working from home is to be happy with what you do, not just do something…no one likes being cranky (except maybe the grinch).
Best of luck to everyone in 2013.
