You see, a business creates a job for one basic reason: they need that spot filled to make the business more money. Period! Businesses don’t hire you just because you’re unemployed, have sick family members and need to work to support them, or because you’ve graduated from college. Again, a business hires a person because that person’s employment leads to the company making more money.

But while you may think the search can be frustrating, it isn’t all hopeless. There are legitimate home business opportunities out there and yes you can earn money from them. If you do want to start your own business don’t give up your search.

Did you ever think you’d see the day when companies such as Sears, Apple, Boeing, AT&T, IBM, Continental and American Airlines, and the big oil companies would be laying off people by the thousands? As many as 25,000 at a time!

What is your hobby? Do you love cooking or photography? You may want to consider starting your own catering or photography business. Both offer a fun and enjoyable way to earn great money.

An “opportunity” that really isn’t is no opportunity at all! So, make sure your “once in a lifetime” opportunity lives up to its description before you join. You want to be certain that every window to become successful is wide open for you.
