I often scroll through some Facebook posts to see what people out there want to do with their lives. I often am looking to recruit people for my business team who love talking to people, posting on the internet and making money.
But the more I read these posts the more I find they all (well not all) want to get rich quick. I have read posts that actually read something like this:
I want to own my own business;
I do not want to pay any fees or startup money;
I don’t want to sell anything;
I don’t want inventory; and I want to make a lot of money!
For the life of me I don’t know any business like that. Any business person will tell you that you need money to start a business. Either you have it or you take a loan.
Even online businesses need some type of startup fee and if you are not selling anything then what exactly are you doing? Maybe I don’t want to know. I started my business with a small startup fee of $15 (now its $25) and while I don’t have a big inventory I do have some. Because my business is dependent on my brochure. People see what they like and they order online….I get the commission. But there is still work to be done. I dont it at home waiting for customers. I text or call my customers after I get a brochure into their hands. And if they don’t live near me – I love digital. I send them a link to my store along with discount codes. My customers always get free shipping and at least a 10% discount.
So, unless you hit the Lottery, I dont see any get rich quick businesses out there….do you?
