Here's a real pet peave of mine. It blows my mind, all the idiots out there searching online for a home business that are not willing to lay out any start-up cash. You don't get something for nothing, not in this world. But these geniuses want to start a business, expect to make thousands of dollars almost overnight, with nothing out of their own pockets. When i call leads, invariably one of the first questions, if not THE first question out of their mouth is "Is there any cost to start your business," and when the answer is "yes," they immediately start to back pedal, even sound insulted. "What's my point" you might ask? "We all go through that" you say. The thing i just can't understand is the mindset behind thinking they can get into a business with no risk of their own. To buy into a franchise at, say, MacDonalds, or Starbucks has up front cost in the hundreds of thousands. To buy an existing business or building in which to put a business can cost in the thousands. To buy into many online businesses can run you into the thousands, as well. So, when in answer to the how much start up cost question, i say $55.00 up front and $55.00 monthly and they are incsensed at the thought, it just gets all over me. How many businesses are there that will give you all the tools and support you need to produce a lifetime of passive residual income for $55.00? I know there are others of you out there who can echo this scenario. I'm talking good solid online businesses, and there are many of them out there, that will make the business owner very wealthy, and all they have to spend is $50.00 to a couple of hundred a month, but these Einsteins can't see that. As soon as they hear that they start talking about scams, rip-offs, or they immediately start talking about how they just don't have any money to spend. If that's true, they need to get a job, because a job is the only thing that is going to give them a paycheck for showing up, working 8, 10, 12 hours a day, or whatever. Yes, i guess I am venting, a bit. But, i would love to hear from some of you, some of the responses you give to people like this. How do you counter their feeble excuses? I suppose it's good in that i don't want people in my downline who will wimp out at the idea of spending a few buck to get started. Those are people who will probably fall by the wayside when they don't make money right away. They certainly will not survive the marathon that is a home business. Anyway, i would love to hear what some of you say to this problem. So, let's hear it.
