  • I started my business because I was good at something and enjoyed it. It has grown organically over the past four years.

  • Not having to pay to work for them is my biggest. I understand maybe having to buy things to work with just in a brick and morter, like a uniform or shoes or dress clothing, but buying to get information to see if it's something you really want to do is a big turn off. That's why I don't work for one, I haven't found a legit one yet.

  • I can tell you what turns me off from certain home businesses- the consultants themselves. They come here on cafemom and all they want to do is talk about their business and 90% of their posts/responses are about their business, even when the person asking the question wasn't asking about a home business. Or better yet, when someone asks about another company, and they respond with oh, you will like my company better, etc. Yes, MKDirector2011, I am talking about you.

  • I agree with NOT paying for anything. Those are usually scams (unless you need to buy a computer or desk....things for your home office) Then see which one has the better reputation. Google each one and see what others say about working for them.

  • Simplicity!! And not having to carry inventory...and...minimal start up costs. Nothing is ever free but minimal is key!!
