What is the best type of home based business to have?

Sarah P asked:


I have a disabled fiance who is unable to work, and needs my care round the clock. I am wanting to start a small home based business, so that I can support us, and also have the time to care for him as needed. Any suggestions?

    I recommend you either start selling things online like on craigslist.org, ebay.com, ecrater.com places like that. You could actually sign up to sell other peoples products if you dont have any of your own. check out. Thats affiliate marketing and you can learn all about affilites on free forums like namepros.com where they also help give advice about domain names, which is another thing you can sell online or make money from in other ways. I just recommend selling things online or making money from something online. Heres free info for setting up a website:
    or if you dont even need a website and just want to sell on auction sites and classified ads that will work.

    if a business opportunity could possibly change your financial situation and required a commitment to make it work, would you be interested?

    plus there’s no investment to make…it’s FREE to join & if you’re determined you can literally make a fortune in a few short months!

    want more info, just let me know…and considering the situation you are in, I’d say in my opinion that this particular business opportunity could be beneficial for you & your family if you choose to in the LONG term…

    I have joined a company that is growing faster than Microsoft, or Ebay. The company itself has a product that might be able to help your fiance. Just check out the videos on my website at and email me if you have any questions. I hope I can help you with this situation

    It sounds to me like you need a home based business that is truly operated from home…..in it’s entirety, which is totally possible so now the questions you need to answer for yourself are as follows:

    What is something that you could get into doing that really excites you? Something you could be totally passionate about? That’s really where you want your starting point to be because in order to be successful at a home based business, you want it to be something that you can really throw your heart and soul into for a long long time because you believe in it!

    Is the home based business you’re looking into something that can really and truly all be done from home so that you can attend to your fiance 24/7 without having to go do demo parties, direct sales or anything that would take you away from him?

    Will it have a low start up cost so as not to be a burden on your current financial lifestyle that you current have going now?

    Would you be able to run it with flexible hours so that you can attend to your personal needs for you both as neede and when needed?

    Does the company have great support so that you will always know what to do next and you’ll never be left hung out to dry?

    If whatever company you are looking for can answer “yes” to all of this and more, and you feel really good about starting something up with them, take even more time to really look at them inside and out….don’t make any rash decisions….be sure that it is all that and then some and if it is? Go for it! Give it all you have and you will succeed!

    Be very careful with what work at home opportunities you get involved in…never consider paying for what is essentially meant to be a job. There are a bunch of scams floating around.

    Having said that, there are lots of legit opportunities online. Many people are making large amounts as affiliates BUT it takes alot of hard work and elbow grease to make a living at it.

    I recommedn you look into becoming a virtual reseller manager with Iplus Digital. Pretty much you can work from home and set your own hours selling hosting services to business and recruiting other VRM’s. I’m doing quite well out of it and i’ve found its very legitimate and an easy company to work for.

    Best of Luck

    Sometimes 3rd party validation can be beneficial when we’re evaluating something of importance. Here is some information that helped me better understand how Corporate America views Networking and Direct Sales.

    In a past issue of Fortune Magazine (the one with Bill Gates on the cover) there was an interesting article focusing on the sputtering economy, and the independent contractors (associates) who are re-energizing the retail industry through the art of direct selling.

    Here are a few paragraphs I that caught my attention:

    “Call it the age of direct selling. With its emphasis on personal, one-on-one relationships between distributor and consumer, convenience, and a high degree of consumer education, the industry may be tailor-made for today’s consumer and company.

    “The result: The industry, with sales of $28.7 billion in the early 2000’s, up 7.5% from before, has become a magnet for both corporate behemoths lured by its efficiencies and dozens of entrepreneurs attracted by the lower cost of market entry .

    “…for example, Warren Buffett’s biggest purchase was The Pampered Chef … Hallmark’s Binney and Smith is launching its own direct-selling company, called Big Yellow Box by Crayola .

    “Most direct-selling businesses now employ a multilevel system, in which distributors earn money on their own sales in addition to those of people they recruit (called the ‘downline’) and individuals brought in by their personal recruits.

    “That’s different from the single-level approach, in which you only get commissions on your own sales. In 1990, about 20% of the Direct Selling Association members in the used the multilevel plan; today, it’s about 80% …

    “‘I saw … something that I could do with my sons,’ said Russ Widger Sr., a former manufacturing company owner … ‘I thought, with this business, they could do in about 10 years or less what had taken me more than 20 years with my conventional business.’

    “‘[Direct sales] provided me with security that I would not have achieved if I had continued working a regular job,’ claimed Meg Kelly-Smith, a former banking executive. ‘I compressed an entire career’s worth of earnings into about five or six years.’

    “A growing number of distributors are placing orders through their company’s web site instead of using the usual faxes or snail-mail orders. Distributors are using … web sites for help in recruitment and training … and as a channel for customer reordering.

    “In 1990, Lisa Wilbur was laid off from her $15,000-a-year secretarial job, living in a 12 by 70 foot trailer with her husband, and trying her best to stave off creditors. Then she decided to sign on with Avon . Over the past ten years she’s made more than $1.4 million in bonuses … not every representative makes nearly that much money or wants to. Many reps … get into the business with the intention of working part-time or even, say, earning a little extra around the holidays.

    “Although today’s economic times offer a variety of challenges, solutions are available for those individuals willing to seek them out. With direct selling companies providing alternate avenues for income generation, more and more people are able to give their current jobs the pink slip.”

    - Fortune, The Power Issue, vol. 148, No. 3

    This industry is being embraced by not only corporate America but business minded people around the globe. Network Marketing is no longer considered fringe. It is turning into mainstream business.

    If you’d like to discuss this with me personally I’d be happy to give you a call. Make sure you leave your contact information at my website and I’ll get in touch with you right away.

    I’ve been with EDC Gold ( now Diamond) for a year, and although it took a couple of months to get rolling, I’ve put in the effort, and now I’m really happy. No, I’m not rich (yet!!) but I can get there if I want to. The only caveat I give is to make usre you have a really good sponsor, like mine ( Martin Line). There are others who will take your money and never talk to you, but Martin Line, Mike Frost, and a few others are wonderful. And BTW, the training is the best I’ve seen in 5 years of searching for a good internet business. You can check Martin out at, or call him at 805-481-0780
