Internet Lifestyle Network Review: What It Really Is

Are looking for a real Internet Lifestyle Network review? Do you want to know how Internet Lifestyle Network fits in with Global Resorts Network? Before you join either one of those programs, you may want to take the time to read this…

Update WARNING: This program created by Vince Ortega, went belly up a long time ago. If you choose a program (or opportunity) created by a solo-preneur, stick with the ones that have a proven track record of success. See this list.


Confused about Internet Lifestyle Network? Have you read reviews and videos about it but still don’t have a clue as to what it really is? Then you’re on the right site at the right time.


Let me explain…


But first watch this video…



Internet Lifestyle Network Review: The Two Sides


There are two sides for every Internet Lifestyle Network review you come across. There’s the side of the affiliate who just wants you to join them and not tell you anything about what you’re joining.


internet lifestyle network review

Then there’s the second type of Internet Lifestyle Network review in which the affiliate gives you a real explanation of what this program is and what it can (or can’t) do for you.


Yes, I am an affiliate but I do want you to be completely informed before (and if ) you decide to join us in the Internet Lifestyle Network.


If you want to truly get products and services that will help you build your business and in turn make more money, then carefully reading every word of this real Internet Lifestyle Network review will help you more than reading yet another “review” that only cares about making the sale.


Read on…


So, What is It?


internet-lifestyle-network-reviewThe Internet Lifestyle Network  (aka ILN) was created by Vincent Ortega Jr.


Mark Hoverson now has a small stake in this company as well which is why you see him promoting it in the above video.


First of all, it’s an education platform that can train you to become a more successful business owner on the Internet. If you like what you see and feel there is value to what’s being offered (and most people do), then you’ll want to share the training with other business owners which is where the affiliate program comes in.


Here’s the lowdown of the products in the apprentice membership, which is only $14.95/month.


    • Branded Blog – You get your very own blog hosted by ILN.


    • The FAMOUS 8-Figure Million Dollar Day course – This will show you how to end your procrastination and unclutter your life so you can become more productive.


    • 8-Figure Branding & Attraction Marketing webinar – This webinar shows you how to get people to click on your links. If you’re going around from social network to social network posting link after link without much success, then this is what you need to watch in order to get better results in your business.


    • Solomon CEO Discovery – The Proverbs Of Solomon Raises You Up To 8-Figure Standards.


  • 8-Figure Facebook Marketing – This will show you how to dominate Facebook like an 8-figure earner.


As you can see, you get a lot of value for a mere $15 bucks/month. Of course, you can expect this low price-point not to last too long. If you’re sitting on the fence about joining, now would be a good time to experience the value of this membership while still at this price. You can learn more here.


Where Does Global Resorts Network Come In?


globalresortsbluelogoILN has lower entry products that you can promote to get your prospects into your funnel. What myself and other people have done is just add Global Resorts Network to the end of the marketing funnel.


What this does is offer people a valuable product that your prospects actually benefit from. That sounds a little odd to say, but the industry is littered with products that only the distributors themselves would only buy.


Global Resorts Network offers you the opportunity to make generous commissions by helping people save money and get more value when they travel.


[stextbox id=”alert”]If you’re not familiar with Global Resorts Network (or GRN for short), you’ll want to learn more about it by going to this Global Resorts Network site.[/stextbox]


In a nutshell, Global Resorts Network has the higher-end product that you can promote. GRN is its own separate business and is an option.


What Internet Lifestyle Network Can (or Can’t) Do For You


If you’ve been around me for any length of time, you know I’m a big advocate of getting the right tools and training to help you build business much more successfully online.


With Mark Hoverson’s training and Vincent Ortega’s insight, the membership is really a no-brainer for someone who’s looking to get an edge in their business and take it to the next level.


internet lifestyle network reviewWhether you’re just starting out or whether you’re already a six-figure earner, you will learn some valuable tips to help bump up your business another notch.

The only way you’re going to succeed online on a massive scale is if you’re willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, whether that’s business tools, systems, training, or whatever.


Warning: This program is not for slackers. If this is you, I suggest you not join this or any other program.


If you want any measure of success online, you must be willing to go to “bat” for yourself and your family.


Ask yourself these questions…


What’s really driving you to succeed in your business?


Do you want to spend more time with your kids?


Do you want pay off your car?


Do you want to take a nice long vacations?


Do you want to have the financial means to take care of a sick relative?


Are you tired of being treated like a child by your boss…and you’re ready to do what it takes to quit?


internet lifestyle network review

Here’s the secret to making any money online…


You must be willing to do whatever it takes…


If you’re sick and tired of sitting on the sidelines watching other people make money, then the Internet Lifestyle Network just may be able to provide the missing ingredients that could make all the difference in the world.

Secondary Income Ideas Become Important as Abbott Laboratories Lay Off 200 People in Temecula

Do you feel your job is at risk for a layoff? Have you ever given thought to any secondary income ideas? After reading this article you may have second thoughts on how you see your employer…


secondary business ideas

Food. Shelter. Bills. Money.


Those are the things that come to mind whenever you lose your job unexpectedly. But does it ever cross your mind that maybe you should be working on some secondary income ideas…just in case you ever are without a job?


In the case of the recent layoffs at Abbott Laboratories in Temecula, California (see story here) I wonder how many of its workers had a backup plan?


With no “Plan B” or any thoughts to secondary income ideas, there will be no doubt that a lot of these workers will find it hard to get back into the workforce given the nature of the economy.


Take it from someone who had gotten laid off from a job without any warning. Not knowing how you’re going to pay bills and put food on the table is a very stressful situation to be in. Add to that all the guilt and shame you feel when you can’t provide for your family.


How to Work on Your Secondary Income Ideas


secondary income ideas

If you haven’t already begun to work on your supplemental income ideas, now is the time to do it. Take 30 minutes today and everyday just brainstorming some ideas that can make you money.


Ask yourself…


What am I good at?


What skills do I have that I can easily make money off of?


You’ll be surprised at what your mind can come up with when you ask yourself the right type of questions.


I Don’t Have Any Secondary Income Ideas


secondary income ideas

If you’re one of those people who don’t have a “bankable” skill that you can make money with in case of an emergency …like losing your job, then you’ll have to do what a lot of people have done to make money – turn to the Internet.


Although there are countless ways to make money online, the ones that you’re probably accustomed to seeing are those real paid online surveys all over the internet and those paid-to-read types of programs.


Although you can make a little bit of money doing those things, you’ll never likely ever make enough to sustain your household.


One of the best secondary income ideas that can replace your income from your job is a work-at-home business. I have made most of my money online with products and services that are legitimate and that people actually want to buy. There are many home business ideas out there – you just have to find the right one that is a fit for you.


Don’t wait until you get laid off or fired from a job to think about secondary income ideas. Do it now.

Home Businesses For Vets

Are you looking for information on home businesses for veterans? In a still very though job market, this may the only avenue for you. Here are the important things you need to know…


If you’re looking into a home based business it may be because you are tired – tired of putting in resume after resume and tired of going to interviews only to be let down time and time again.


If you watched the 60Minutes television episode that showed how some vets are putting their financial destiny back into their own hands by taking the entrepreneurial plunge, you may be hopeful that you can do the same too. If you didn’t see the segment you can see it below:



How to Begin Searching For Home Businesses For Veterans


Tap Into Your Existing Skills


When it comes to looking for a business, especially a home based business, it’s best to start with your existing skills, interests, and hobbies.


These are the million dollar questions you’ll want to ask yourself…


What am I good at that will allow me to build a successful business around?


What interests or passions do I currently have that I can make money with?


If you notice that each of those questions have either success or make money in them.




There has to be a buying market for your product or service. Just building a business around your passion or interest without regard to if there’s a market for what you’re selling is foolhardy.


If no one is buying what you’re selling, no matter how passionate you feel about it, you will not make money. And if you borrowed money to start a business without first doing your research into the market, well you could be on the road to a financial mess.


So, the first step is to start with your current interests and skills and see if there’s a buying market for what you want to market.


Here’s a another question to ask yourself…


Does your market exist online or offline?


The next big question is…


How do you intend to reach your market? In other words, how do you intend to market to them?


Now that you’re getting some ideas of what you can possibly to start a home business, let’s talk about the what if’s… what if you don’t have any ideas as to what hobbies/interests you can turn into a business.


Read on…


No Marketable Skills – Now What?


If you’ve decided that you don’t have any skills or interests you want to turn into a business, don’t give up because all hope is not lost. There are lots of home businesses for veterans you can get into.


If you’re looking to be an online marketer, the way a lot of people get started is by selling other people’s stuff. That could mean selling ebooks other people have written and it could mean becoming an affiliate for Amazon and selling products off of their website.


It could also mean becoming a distributor or representative for a network marketing company. Think about Tupperware, Avon, Usana, Shaklee, etc…


Once you get some Internet skills and know-how under your belt, you can even help offline businesses get started marketing online. There are a lot of outsourcers and seo companies you can partner with to do the “work” for you – all you have to do is get businesses interested in the services you offer.


The Key to Success


After you’ve decided what kind of business you’re going to get into, and you’ve done your market research and know that there are buyers for your product or service, you’ll need to develop a marketing plan to reaching your market.


Now if by now you have not decided what kind of business you’re going to go into or if you have not done your research I suggest you take the time and do that right now before going on.


If you’re leading more towards an Internet business and becoming an affiliate I highly suggest you get some training. I suggest you check out online digital marketing training.


The secret ingredients to making a success of your home business is traffic – the more targeted the better. Now I’m assuming that you have your business essentials in place, i.e. your converting website/lead capture page (if you’re building a list) and so on. There’s no use trying to get traffic if you have no place to send them.


You must take the time and learn about lead generation. There’s a lot of talk about free traffic and SEO but you must know that getting traffic from the search engines is not as easy as it used to be.


I suggest you work on building your website with the keywords you want to rank for and in addition use paid traffic generation techniques so you can start driving traffic to your site immediately.


Yes, there are plenty of good home businesses for veterans but you have to do your due diligence first and foremost and back it up with a solid marketing plan for getting traffic to your business.

Remember this is going to be a marathon, not a sprint to success.



Network Marketing Travel Companies: Real or Scams?

There’s no lack of network marketing travel companies in this industry. And as you can imagine, there’s no lack of controversy when it comes to these types of travel companies. If you’re serious about making money – and there is quite a bit of money to be made in travel, then this is THE review of network marketing travel companies you need to read…


network marketing travel companies

If you’re a lover of travel and you want to make money in the travel industry and you don’t want to go through the hassles of becoming a travel agent, then this is probably what you need to read right now.


If you’ve been online for any length of time, I’m sure you’ve run across your share of naysayers of the mlm /network marketing industry and of travel network marketing companies in general.


So, let’s just get this out the way and air out the dirty laundry of network marketing travel companies…


The Controversy Over Network Marketing Travel Companies


As you may be aware of the biggest complaints against mlm are that there are no REAL legitimate products being sold and that the emphasis is on recruiting to make commissions.



courtesy of

In the case of network marketing travel companies, a lot of the naysayers say that there are no real savings with the travel products promoted by these travel companies.


They say that these “fake” travel products give the illusion that people are saving money but in reality they’re not…according to them.


They also say that the travel company only exist to pay out commissions a la Ponzi Scheme.


Here’s the bombshell…


Yes, just like with anything in life, there are going to be good companies and products and there are going to be not so good types of network marketing travel companies.


So, yes there is some truth in these complaints about these companies. But the mistake a lot of these naysayers make is putting all these types of companies in one basket only to slap them all with the same broad brush.


And for some who hate that fact there is recruiting involved, they will never be won over by any type of network marketing company, especially a travel one.


Now that the cat is out of the bag and you know that there are network marketing travel companies you should probably steer clear of, you really need to understand that the focus has to be on the product or service provided by these travel companies. In other words, there has to be value for the end user. And in case you didn’t know, you are not the end user, it’s the product/service buyer.


Without products/services being “moved” by real people, there is no business only the mystical illusion that there is. And for those very reasons you will find a lot of travel companies coming and going out of this industry like a swinging door on a windy day.


On the positive side, if you can find a network marketing travel company that can deliver a quality product and have a nice commission structure to it, you can make a nice income in this industry doing something that you actually like.


Without further ado, here are some of the better-known network marketing travel companies…




World Ventures 



This compnay sells memberships or what they call “DreamTrips.” There are three types of memberships each with a monthly fee you’ll have to pay.


Pay Plan: Mlm (binary)


What I Don’t Like: From their website, “Numerous local opportunities and valuable deals at fine restaurants, fun clubs and friendly hotels.” What you’re actually saving and what kind of deals you’ll get with your membership is very vague. To commit to a membership without knowing what it is you’re getting is a bit dangerous for your wallet.


What I Like: I like their cutting-edge website and photos…not boring at all. It catches your attention which you need to do nowadays to get people to pay attention to your message. And the best thing about World Ventures is that it’s backed up by Rovia, a 25+ year old company.


Worth Joining?: Maybe. If you wanted a mlm travel company then this would be one worth looking further into.




Paycation Travel Club (formerly TraVerus)



It appears to be some sort of booking engine similar to Expedia. In one form or another (or one name or another) this travel company has been in the travel business ten years according to its website.


Pay Plan: MLM (matrix)


What I Don’t Like: The name change from TraVersus to Paycation raises some eyebrows as the main site ( focuses on…drum roll, making money. The icing on the cake is that when I went to their booking engine I put in two hotels on its site and then put the same two sites on Expedia and the prices were identical. So, where’s the savings by going through Paycation? Or am I missing something?


What I like: Nothing in particular stands out as a travel company or a business opportunity. There are better network marketing travel companies out there.


Worth Joining?: No.




Mor Vacations


mor vacations

Once popular a few years ago, it seems like a ghost town when you go to the websites that used to promote it. Around 2008 a lot of people stopped promoting it and/or the company closed shop on the biz opp side. Next…


Pay Plan: Not sure… Not really relevant at this point.


Worth Joining?: As a business opportunity – no. It may be worth looking into the travel side.




World Discovery Club


world discovery club

It’s a travel membership club that was started by former travel distributors/reps of Mor Vacations. They offer discounts of airline tickets to rental cars and all else in between. They have several memberships from around $500 to over $19k. No mention of the opportunity when you go to the main site and even when you search on Google.


World Discovery Club apparently was quite popular in 2011-2012. Then it seemed to drop off the radar. Again, not sure what happened with this company.  The most recent content I found online is from early 2012. It does appear that this company is still in business, but info on the biz opp side is very hard to find.


Pay Plan: From sites I found online, not related to WDC, it appears it is an mlm with a unilevel pay plan


What I Don’t Like: Info is pretty vague as to what kind of discounts you could expect to get with its membership. This company needs more transparency as to what its members are getting for their money.


What I Like: They offer discounts from car rentals to accommodations.


Worth Joining?: As of this writing, I would say you would need to do more research on this company and whether or not the savings are worth the cost of membership. Based on the info I found so far online and the amount of digging I had to do to get it, I would say stick with the other better known travel companies.




Coastal Vacations 



Coastal Vacations offer discount travel cards from hotel discount cards to golf discount travel cards and pretty much all else in between. You join by purchasing a travel package. The prices range from $1200-$11k. You can earn $1k – $9k per sale depending upon your level.


Pay Plan: Not mlm. Single tier affiliate and you pass up sales.


What I Don’t Like: Hard to find real info on Coastal Vacations from the Official site. I had to do some digging to get the info. Not sure why their “home” site is not ranking at the number one spot or at least at the top for ‘Coastal Vacations’.


What I Do Like: There are a lot of discounts cards you can use in your day to day life.


Worth Joining?: Coastal Vacations had its heyday several years ago, but changes within Coastal Vacations has had a massive exodus of people leaving for greener pastures elsewhere.


From a product perspective, the retail side, perhaps it is worth looking into. The biggest turn-off for most people, even back when Coastal was in its prime is the passing up of sales.


This is one of only a handful, (more like a couple) of network marketing travel companies that is not based on the mlm compensation model. For that reason, it may be worth looking into.




Global Resorts Network

UPDATE 11/30/14


Lots of changes with this program – some not so good in my humble opinion. Cannot recommend at this time.


Network Marketing Travel Companies Resources and Alternatives


So, there you have it. The travel industry is one of those evergreen lucrative niches that you can make really good money in by providing valuable products and services.


network marketing travel companies

Now, you don’t have to join a network marketing company in order to get into the travel industry.


All the popular travel booking sites offer affiliate programs and some even offer a white-label program you can brand with your own company.


If you like the idea of being a travel agent, there are host agencies that will hire home travel agents (see below).


If you’re looking to get started in the travel niche and you have no desire to jump through the hoops and training of becoming a travel agent, then these network marketing travel companies are great place to start your travel career.

Boeing Everett to Lay-Off 800 Workers

In as many months another major company is forcing the layoffs of a significant number of its employees – and in this case it’s Boeing Everett doing the dirty deed. If you’re a part of this company, now is the time to take action so that you’re prepared in case the next lay-off notice comes looking for you…




Layoffs are hard – real hard especially if you’re NOT expecting it. Having been a former worker in a major manufacturing plant that got laid off without advance notice, I can tell you it’s a scary feeling.


What saves most people when layoffs happen is having a Plan B; in other words, having another way to make money so that you can pay your bills and feed your family in case you lose your job.


Shaws Supermarket layoffsEvery person, in my humble opinion, should have another way to create income.


Whether you’re selling your arts and crafts at a flea market or you’re repairing appliances on the side – there should be something you can rely on when times get tough.


And with the potential layoffs of 800 workers at Boeing Everett (see story), there’s no better time than the present to start working on your side income.


For most people this starts with something they already know well enough to make money off of. What services or products can you create or do for money?


For other people who aren’t as skilled to make money off of an existing hobby, there’s the online world where you can start a side business even on a shoe-string budget.


Curious? Read on…


How to NOT Worry About the Next Boeing Everett Layoffs



I’ve talked to a lot of people over the years about the benefits of working from home in a home based business.


Notice I said home based business – not a job. You don’t need another unpredictable finicky job that you can’t rely on.


Isn’t it about time you take charge of your future and not leave it to chance on a job that can fire you or lay you off at will?


Let me show you how to begin right now making money from the comfort of your home with a business that can make you a life-changing income.


So that when the next layoffs occurs, you’re not caught with your pants down in a very vulnerable position.


With this business, you’ll be able to even laugh off the next layoffs and maybe be able to quit Boeing Everett altogether if you so wish. It all starts with one decision…

Is it Possible to Earn Extra Income Working Online From Home?

Is making an extra income working online from home a myth? Before you give up all hope of making money online, you’d better take a look at this.




Can you imagine what it would feel like to make enough money to pay off all your bills? Can you see yourself giving money away to your favorite charity, church, or school?


Whatever the reason you’re looking to make extra income working online from home, there is something that stops you in your tracks.
And that something may be…

* Fear of falling for a scam

* Fear of “it” not working

* Fear of being let down – again

* Fear of choosing the wrong thing to make money with…and looking like a “fool”

You’re either fearful of something, had a bad experience with a program, or you’re confused or intimidated and don’t know where to start.


What has stopped you from making an extra income working online from home?


The Reality Check You May Want to Cash

The truth about extra income working online from home



The miserable truth is that yes, there are a lot of scams online. Another reality is that there are programs out there that DO work, but unless you pick the right one, you’ll find that it takes too much time to make any significant money.


If you just want to make a little bit of money to pay a utility bill, then be prepared to spend your day clicking on emails that pay you pennies. Then again you could put in long hours filling out surveys that sometimes end up paying you nothing at all!


Have you done any of those things above only to feel frustrated that you couldn’t make money fast enough?


Are You Serious About Making Extra Income Working Online From Home?

The failure traps you must avoid online


Here are a few more in-depth reasons people struggle to make money online:


1. Falling for too many scams online – If something sounds too good to be true, do a little digging and see it’s real or if it is a scam (most likely). Take the time and do a little diligence before you join a program…even if it’s free.


2. Unrealistic expectations using online surveys and pay-to-click sites to make money – If you’re expecting to make a lot of money doing survey after survey and literally clicking all day on ads that pay out less than a penny per click, you better lower your expectations or you’re going to be in for a major letdown.


I’ve run to lots of people online who frustrate themselves and wear themselves out trying to make money with these things. If you choose to go this route then know that you’re not going to make any life-changing income and if you’re like most people, you’ll soon tire of doing these things just to make a few dollars a month.


The Powerful Way to Make Significant Extra Income Working Online From Home

 The smarter faster way to make money on the Internet


If you’re sick of making little to no money online, and if you’re tired of doing surveys and spending your day clicking on ads and emails, then the only other way to make money online is with a business.




A business, if done right, can produce a huge income that is more worthy of your time and effort than spending all day trying to make .15 cents.


You may be thinking, well I tried a business and it didn’t work…


Let me tell you there are many variables that have to be in place in order for you to have success online – and many businesses you see online just don’t have them.


[stextbox id=”alert”]Remember, there are many ways to earn extra income working from home. You have to choose the right path for you. Just make sure you have a product/service that people want to buy.[/stextbox]


First of all, if you’re dreaming of making that significant income, then you have to be real and choose a business that has:


* Proven products and services that people want to buy – If you have no buyers, you make NO money


 * Products in different price points – There should be an entry-level price point that leads your prospects to higher income producing products. This could be done also in your marketing funnel.


* High commission products – so you can make MORE money faster. Again you can promote higher products in your marketing funnel.


 * Lead capture pages that convert your prospects (This is HUGE) – The reasons a lot of people fail online, especially network marketers, is that the webpage that companies give its affiliates and distributors don’t convert that well.


If you ever spent a lot of money and time driving traffic to a page given to you by your company and you had very little success of people opting in, it may be because the page you were sending your traffic to didn’t convert!


If you’re disgusted with your results on the Internet trying to make extra income working online from home, then you really need to take a good hard look at what you are promoting.


If you dream of white sandy beaches, extra money to pay off all your debt and money to help out those that are less-fortunate then you MUST get with the programs that are designed to make you serious money. Why spend your time making less money, when you could be making more?


Can you make extra income working online from home?

Vector Marketing Reviews – Does This Company Make You Feel Creepy?

If you’ve been looking at a Vector Marketing job or have been called in for an interview- and you feel really weird about it, then this Vector Marketing review is something you need to read ASAP…


Vector marketing

courtesy of


Make no mistake about it – Vector Marketing is one strange company. So strange that many people quickly quit when they find out what it really is.


Here’s some people’s experiences with Vector Marketing that I found on the Internet (click here, this window will stay open).


So with all the weirdness and aura of foreboding, does this job really pay well for what you have to do?


First of all, just so that you know you’re NOT going crazy, odds are you’ll have your interview in usually a dingy looking or run-down looking business office.


After you pass your “interview” you then are usually are invited to work for free – yes FREE to see if you can do the job. Vector Marketing wants you to give up your valuable time and work for them for free.


Do you have the word “Idiot” written on your face?


Idiot must be written on some people’s faces because a lot of people, especially women buy into it (blame the desperation on the economy I guess), only to find out that they’re selling cutlery.


From all reports I’ve seen, Vector Marketing wants you to sell Cutco cutlery. And in some areas, they want you to go to people’s homes with a set of these knives. vector marketing




From all accounts it doesn’t appear that Vector Marketing even pays that well. How could it if it wants you to spend several hours working for them for free?


Now, if you were gonna go into sales, why not go into sales for yourself where you can make ALL the money?


Well you can and you don’t have to go to a creepy Interview in a dilapidated building or fear for your safety to do it.


If you’re into marketing, but NOT Vector Marketing, let me show you how to make a life-style changing income from the comfort of your own home…


[stextbox id=”info”]Considering this company’s checkered past, make sure you do your due diligence if you’re seriously checking out this company.[/stextbox]
Based upon all the online Vector Marketing reviews, this company is no-go in my book!

Home Based Business vs Home Based Job – Is There a Difference?

Home based business vs home based job – are they one and the same? Do you find it hard to tell a business opportunity from a work at home job? It’s no secret that you’ll likely to sign up for more than you bargained for if you don’t know the difference. Here’s what you need to know…


Home based business vs home based job


Home based business vs home based job…so what really is the difference?


Well, by now you’ve probably seen lots of ads online for “work at home opportunities”, but maybe you didn’t know if it was legit. Perhaps you weren’t sure if these ads were for a work at home job or for a business opportunity and so you hesitated.


What’s even more complicated is that some of these opportunities wanted you to “invest” or put up money to get started and so now you’re thinking that all home based businesses and jobs are scams!


Nothing to could be further from the truth…and I’ll tell ya why…


Home Based Business vs Home Based Job


home based business vs home based job

By now you may still be a little bit confused at the difference between a home based business and a home based job. Let me put it like this…


Home Based Jobs


A home based job is exactly like that – a job. You either have an employer or you have an employee/employer-type relationship. You complete certain tasks and in exchange you get paid per your established agreement. Some work at home jobs pay you hourly, whereas some pay you by the minute, whereas others pay by the completed tasks that you do.


Lets mix it up a bit more…


There are work at home jobs that require you to be an independent contractor. There’s even one company, Arise, that requires you to incorporate (that one makes no sense to me at all. You might as well have you’re own business!).


Should You Pay For a Home Based Job?


You may have feelings of desperation as you come across something called a work from home opportunity, but something stops you dead in your tracks – they want you to pay money to get started!

You quickly do an about face and lump that home opportunity under “S” for scams because it just like all the other opportunities you’ve seen online.


Are you right for thinking like this or did you let a good opportunity slip through your wet hands?


Well, it can be both. Let me explain further…


The Requirements For a Work From Home Job


All jobs whether it be a work from home job or a traditional job, has requirements. In the case of a home based job, some companies may require you to have a degree or a certain kind of experience. Some jobs may require some of the things listed below, some of which may require you to spend money such as:

  • A Computer
  • A Computer that meets the company’s requirements (so much storage space, memory, a certain operating system, etc..)
  • A landline phone
  • Specific office software
  • A fax machine
  • A copy machine
  • A scanner


In addition, some companies may require you to pay for your own background check which in some cases is reimbursed to you later. As you can see, there are quite a few things that can cost you money in your pursuit of a home based job. The great thing is that you probably meet most of the requirements already.


What is important to note here is that although there are requirements you have to meet in order to get a home based job, you should NOT have to pay for a job nor should you have to pay for the right to apply for a job.


You also do not have to purchase an ebook to get a listing of the companies that hire home workers. I’ll reveal to you a couple of websites that list the top companies that hire home based workers.


What Kind of Home Based Jobs Are Available?


All kinds of companies hire home based workers. Here are some job types you’ll commonly find:

  • Data Entry
  • Transcription Services
  • Customer Service
  • Telemarketing
  • Sales
  • Order Taking
  • Virtual Assistants


Do you have any skills that fall into any of those job categories above?


Where Can I Find Work at Home Jobs?


There are only a few places that I recommend:


  1. Work at Home Arena (highly recommend) – You have to register first and then go to the forum. You will find info on some of the most common and popular companies that hire home workers. You’ll want to scroll down to the “Work at Home Job Topics” section.

tip jarTIP: Always read the “sticky” threads at the top of each company forum. It will tell you what you need to know and how to apply. Some companies only hire in certain states so there’s no use applying for a company that doesn’t hire in your state.


2. – This is another forum. You’ll have to spend the time to go through each sub-forum and find work at home job leads. Use your discretion because anyone can start a thread on a company and it may not be legit.


3. Work From Home Mommy – Lots of job leads here, make sure you do thorough research first. Once you find a job, check it on Work at Home Arena to see if anybody there has any feedback on the company.


The Pros and Cons of a Home Based Job


With so many companies (there are literally hundreds of companies that hire home workers), why aren’t more people working from home in their pajamas?


First of all, as you can imagine there is a lot of competition. Second of all, you do have to meet each job’s requirements. Lastly, for just about all work at home jobs, unless you’re doing transcription or data entry, you must have a quiet background. That means no crying babies and no barking dogs.


The pros of course is that you get to stay home and you don’t have to deal with a daily commute. The cons is that a home based job is still a job. Some jobs have strict requirements so that you can’t venture too far from your computer…you’re literally stuck in front of it.


With a home based job you can be fired at will and without any advanced notice. You are limited in what you can make. This is NOT a business where you have control over your income.


Which brings us to a home based business – where you have the flexibility and the opportunity to make bigger checks…


Why Choose a Home Based Business?


So now that you know all about work from home jobs, you need to know about the other work at home opportunity – a home based business.


home based business

A home based business just like any other kind of business – it will require some expense. Either the expense of buying a distributor kit, buying product to demonstrate, buying advertising to advertise your business, getting business/marketing training, etc…


A home based business is STILL a business. Just because you can sit at home and work your business from your home, it doesn’t mean that it’s any less a business.


Many people get in trouble with their home business because they assume that they’ll get rich overnight and that it’ll be easy to do. Let me tell you that this couldn’t be any further from the truth! A business takes work – hard work.


home based business

A legitimate business requires you to be diligent, consistent, persistent, a self-starter, and have a willingness to learn. You must be willing to invest into your business, so you should have an advertising budget.


If you don’t have all of those things I listed, then a home based business may NOT be the right thing for you at this time.


The trade-off for being consistent, persistent, and treating your business like a business, is that you can literally write your own checks. You have the opportunity to make a six-figure+ income from home.


You will never get rich working a job, unless you have a high ranking position in a company – and only a small percentage of people hold these positions.


Now you know the difference between a home based job and a home based business. Where you are in your life and how much money you want to make for your family will determine the right path for you.
