For business the Internet is the wave of the future. Although the Internet is tremendously popular today only 23% of the world population is accessing the Internet. That means we still have 77% growth ahead of us. That’s a lot of potential customers and business owners!

In this wave of massive growth their are a lot of shysters out there trying to trick people out of there money. There are also many legitimate online business opportunities.

How can you tell the difference between a legitimate opportunity and a scam?

First of all “Get Rich Quick” is a load of crap. If you are looking for a get rich quick opportunity then you are fooling yourself. It doesn’t exist. Getting rich is not as easy as clicking a couple of buttons. So if an opportunity looks like “Get rich quick” avoid it.

Business is not easy. A business system may be simple to run, but marketing that business, educating yourself about business, and attaining the proper mindset to successfully run a business is not easy.

One of the questions to ask when evaluating a business opportunity is “Does the company provide training, and is it comprehensive?” This is essential when buying into an existing business model.

Another question to ask is “Does the company have a track record for success?” I want to know if other people are attaining the success I’m looking to achieve.

Does the company have a system set up to support new business owners? Starting a new business is challenging, overwhelming, and sometimes confusing. I want to know that I will be supported when tackling these challenges.
One must realize that being an entrepreneur is not easy. It is one of the most challenging, risky, and rewarding paths one can take. That being said you should not expect a company to hold your hand in your endeavor. You need to be the one who makes your business work. You need to be willing to do whatever it takes to make your business succeed. You need to take responsibility for educating yourself.

Being a business owner is not easy. It is rewarding and it is worth all of the difficulty, but it won’t just happen at the click of a button.

Keep these things in mind as you search for legitimate online business opportunities and you should be OK. If you think something is too good to be true it probably is. Use your judgment and do your due diligence.
