Most companies that survive make great products or they wouldn't be in business. Typically the energy companies are the hardest to survive, technology changes so fast that the products they have have a hard time being value priced and the companies have a really hard time keeping up with the Jones! You want to have something that stays a good value. So if the product is one that is based on present technology, you will probably find them falling away in the midst of competition.
So when looking at a particular opportunity, the easiest first point to look at is from the five pillars, how long have they been in business? If it is less than 2 yrs old, it has not passed the test of time. Most fail in the first 2 years, so if you don't want to take a chance on it folding just when you are getting going, don't pick a company less than 2 years old.
The hardest thing for me was what kind of company or product did I want to get involved with. I hear people making fun of the so called 'lotions and potions' type companies but let me ask a question.... how many times a day does the average person take a vitamin or nutritional supplement, wash something either on their person or in their home, use something as simple as hand lotion, get bit by a mosquito or stung by a bee, decide to go on a diet, or look for something healthy to snack on. If you are looking at a hobby by all means look for something 'fun', but if you are looking for an opportunity to make money... what kind of product could be better than one that almost everyone uses every day! The health and beauty industry is a massive one, and being a part of this gives you customers every where you look.
I am in this to make money and (a great side effect) to help as many people I can. The old adage of 'If you help enough people get what they want, you will get what you want is tried and true. And what better way to help someone be healthier and happier physically and sometimes emotionally and mentally as well. I am looking to grow personally and the nutritional supplements just help me to be more mentally alert and see what I need to do to get what I want. So I am not feeling bad about being a part of a multi-billion business, I am excited and thankful that the company I choose has such high quality products that help me so many other people feel better and get healthier, as well as make some great money. Take a look at some nutritional supplement companies, and see just what great potential there is in a product driven company that can really make a difference in so many peoples lives.
So lotions and potions can be very lucritive. If someone laughs at you for getting involved in something like this, laugh right along with them.... all the way to the bank!
