When you decide to take on a part-time job, you have to figure out what job opportunities are legitimate and which are going to cost you money rather than help you make money. This question comes from a reader who has a friend that wants her to join a multi-level marketing firm:
I am thinking of starting to work part-time and am looking at my current options. I have a friend who is trying to get me to take part in a multi-level marketing company that she sells for. She says that there is an opportunity to make a lot of money with this system, but I don’t know a whole lot about multi-level marketing and was wondering if these companies are a good place to work or mostly scams? What is the best way to evaluate whether something is legitimate or something that I should avoid? I’m not sure if I like the idea of recruiting other people as part of my job. Any help that I can get in understanding this better would be a big help. Thank you.
If you have any advice from your own experience or others that you know who have worked in multi-level marketing, please feel free to extend your opinions here.
