It’s easy to avoid – just be truthful about your business. There are people out there looking for business opportunities and there are people who are looking for jobs. Don’t lie to the people looking for jobs by saying you’re “hiring” for “work from home executives” when the truth is that you’re recruiting for your MLM business. MLM and direct sales businesses are GREAT! They are very successful for lots of people. But to use deceptive advertising like that is just shooting yourself in the foot.

1. It makes you a liar.
2. It puts people in front of you with a “job” mentality…is that really what you want for your business?

Be smart – if your business is as great as you think it is, you don’t HAVE to try to fool people into thinking they’re getting a job interview when they’re getting recruited into something they will have to make an investment to join.

Stop lying, people. It’s annoying as heck and this is a big part of what puts a bad taste in people’s mouths when they think of MLM and Direct Sales. If everyone would just be HONEST, it would be easier and more successful for everyone.

Have you ever been looking for a work at home job and answered an ad, only to find out that the person who placed the ad wasn’t really looking to hire someone but to recruit someone into a home business? It can be a frustrating situation when you’re looking to telecommute. Some have even found themselves at an “interview” which is actually a business opportunity presentation or meeting.

Unfortunately, this practice of placing employment ads by reps of home business companies doesn’t look to be ending any time soon. You can avoid finding yourself in a bogus “interview” by asking some questions when you speak to or email the person who placed the ad. Most of these ads do not mention a company name, so it’s perfectly appropriate for you to ask the name of the company. Many of these ads are also vague about the duties you will be performing, so ask questions about what the work entails. Compensation is rarely stated in these types of ads. You’ll usually see something like “unlimited earning potential” or “full time pay for part time work.” Ask about compensation. If they say they need to meet with you first to explain the plan, it’s probably a home based business opportunity.

I think home based businesses and network marketing are legitimate ways of earning income and have nothing against them. I simply object to this specific recruiting practice that some use. To me, it’s deceptive to insinuate that you have a job opportunity when what you really have is a business opportunity. There are some people who simply want a JOB with a paycheck and those folks deserve the respect and courtesy of truth and honesty in advertising.

When advertising for business opportunities, it would be best if all were up front about what they are offering. Home businesses are terrific and legitimate ones have no need to hide behind employment ads in order to get recruits.

Working from home brings unique opportunities and challenges. It can be tricky to find the right job or business that suits your needs. Some things about expectations:

1. If you’re starting a business, you must expect to spend some money to start up and promote it. Even the “free” opportunities have some costs associated if you’re going to be serious about it.

2. If you’re starting a business, you must expect it to take some time to start making good money. Plan for this. Jumping into a business full-time if you’re expecting to make a living isn’t the best idea in most cases. If you must do this, I’d recommend having at least six months of living expenses saved up before doing so.

3. Expect to pay your taxes! Whether you’re an IC or an employee, make sure you’re ready when tax time comes. Keep all your pay stubs and/or copies of checks. Keep track of any expenses you incur as part of your business or job. Especially if you’re an IC, set aside money from every check for taxes. Consult your local tax professional to find out just how much in your case.

4. Expect that your client or employer will expect reliability and results. Whatever your task is, keep track of your accomplishments. Do what they expect and more.

5. Expect to realize that working from home is not about spending time with your kids. It’s always harder than you think it will be trying to work from home and supervise your children, especially if they are small. If you’re caring for small children while working, make sure you take on the kinds of positions that are conducive to that environment. A call-center job probably isn’t for you, but if you have a talent for web design or writing, you can probably find a fit somewhere.

6. Expect that your expectations may have to change after you gain more experience. There are so many different jobs and businesses to do from home. Finding your perfect fit can take time and change the way you think about working from home.
