There are a lot of bad opportunities out there, and also many good opportunities. Some business opportunities are only good if you are already a seasoned marketer.
A company with a great product line and business system without a full marketing training program is not for beginners. Marketing is difficult, competitive, and all but impossible if you don't have an up-to-date cutting-edge education.
I will go so far as to say, that if you are a beginner in the Direct Sales/ Network Marketing field and you do not have a mentor and an educational training program you will spend more money than you make and will eventually quit and fail.
There are training programs out there that will guide and coach you to success. It is important to do some research before getting into a business opportunity. Know how much education and training you will be receiving. With the help of professional business coach, you will get a positive influence on your business.
If you are already involved with a company and you do not feel that you are getting the training and mentoring you need, relax. There are marketing training programs that can work with any online business.
The reality is that if you are going to be a successful entrepreneur you have to invest in your own education. By investing, I'm talking about time and money. Time to learn and implement the techniques and strategies that you will pay for in the form of books, e-books, seminars, courses, and personal coaching.
In the beginning, it is more important to invest in your education than it is to invest in advertising. If done improperly advertising will suck up all of your money and yield little or nothing! That is why it is important to get involved with a company that provides a full training program as part of the opportunity.
