Take your time deciding
Does “getting in on the ground floor” mean that everyone joining after you will be less satisfied or happy? A legitimate opportunity won’t disappear overnight. Think long-term.
About the company, its leadership, the products or services, start-up fees, realistic costs of doing business, average earnings of distributors, return policies, and anything else you’re concerned about.
Get copies of all company literature
And read it!
Consult with others who have had experiences with the company and its products
Check to see if the products or services are actually being sold to consumers.
Investigate and verify all information
Do not assume that “official looking” documents are accurate or complete or even produced by the company, as opposed to the person trying to recruit you.
