A review on home business application processes

Do you know right now there are many people looking to own their own business? If you have read any of my other articles I have said that it's more risky now to have a traditional job than to own your business. In this article I will inform you all about application processes and help you understand them in regards to home business opportunities whether it be MLM, direct sales etc.

Statistics show that 79 million people in North America plan to start their own business in the next 3-5 years. Many people are looking for a free application process when joining a business. That should be the way to start, right? WRONG!!

Think about this. If you started a very lucrative business and your stating to everyone that your business has a $250,000 first year potential, you're going to have prospects tripping over themselves trying to get "in the door". You want serious people to work with, right? If you allow your application process to be free, how are you going to "weed out the tire kickers" - the ones who just "want to try it out"? (I also recommend reading my article "Weeding out the tire kickers"). Trust me, there will be a lot of tire kickers out there! I was once one myself. You also want quality people to join your business. Isn't it easier to run a business and become the hunted instead of the hunter? You want people to come to you. This makes it easier to concentrate on other things that are important in your business. If there is no application process how can you sort any of your leads? You don't know who's serious or even qualified to work with you.

Businesses that don't offer a application process also tend to label potential prospects as numbers and not a name. Do you want to be a number or a name? Hey, I want to be recognized in the community, wouldn't you? This will also keep away the "get rich quick" and the "lottery ticket" people away. A lot of traditional home businesses accept anyone with a heartbeat.

There are many things that I look for in a prospect for my business. I look for people that are not selfish, that have unrealistic goals (yes, i said unrealistic I'll explain this in another article later,stay tuned), people who give back to their community, take action quickly, and who take the time to invest in themselves toward their own personal development. One more thing, make sure you know that your potential business opportunity takes more interest in your success and prosperity and not their own.
