Let’s find out. Below you’ll find several things typical of business opportunity seekers, or biz-opp seekers. Score yourself.
1. Do you own any books with home-based business in the title?
You know the kind: 101 business for the stay at home mom, and the like. These can be fun books to read, and they are also a sure sign of an opportunity seeker.
2. Have you ever joined a network marketing business?
Don’t be shy – many people have. If you have, that makes you a beginner in the field of biz-opp seekers.
3. Have you joined over ten MLM’s?
Okay, now we’re talking! Throw in those vending machines you have in your garage and you are a full blown opp-seeker!
4. Do you subscribe to Home Based Business Magazine, Entrepreneur, or the Network Marketing News?
This kind of publication pretty much confirms it. You have a real habit, and may need therapy.
5. Do you know what WAHM means? And if so, do you think WAHD will ever become popular?
I’ll save you the trouble of looking it up. WAHM stands for work at home mom. I am trying to popularize the less well known WAHD, work at home dad.
6. Can you name 3 locations or more of local flea markets, and their hours?
I’ll accept 3 accounts online to sell things from your garage. I personally like eBay (of course), Amazon, and I’ve used BN.com as well.
7. Do you have any serious money in the bank?
I sincerely hope so! You have a business opportunity seeker habit to feed – but most seekers spend their money on a new business idea, and consequently have little in the bank. More on this below.
8. Bonus item: Does your spouse object to biz-opp magazines as if they were dirty magazines?
Sadly, many have found this to be true. You bring home a new idea or a new book, and your wife or husband throws a tizzy fit. Not another one. Here goes the vacation savings. Then they warn you against using your 401K, your IRA, or the kids college fund.
Of course, you promise that this one will work!
Face it, you’re sick. You need help. (Me too!)
If any of this causes twitching, embarrassment, loss of consciousness, or loved ones to say I told you so, you should consider treatment.
In my case, I found a great opportunity that only cost a little, and I stopped spending. My wife loved that. Then, I kept at it and stopped trying new things for 3 years – seriously! Then, miracle of miracles, my business opportunity seeker stopped looking so much because…
I turned a profit! Really!
So that’s the treatment: Stick with a proven opportunity or business long enough to really learn how to do it. Then, do it, and make some money.
