I believe that the next `big thing` as far as home based business will be the Agel network marketing business opportunity.
Before joining Agel , I spent a month doing research on this company , I researched many other company`s and I have not found in the other network marketing company`s what I found in Agel. The leadership, compensation plan, products and timing. - Agel has it all!
My guess is that most people who are looking to build a home based business - are not just looking to earn a good 4000 dollars a months, Today people are looking to build wealth and to build it from home.
When I joined the network marketing industry I did so because I was really looking to create wealth and not just an extra income on the side. I can only speak for myself by saying that in order to work from home and build wealth - one has to really choose the right home based business program for him/her self , There are many wacky home based businesses out there that will promise you all diffrent kind of things.I was looking for honesty and that I found with Agel.
Google Agel and check it out,
Have a great day!

I agree with the person that said invest in the baby boomers. They have a lot of money to spend, have saved up quite a bit, travel often, are independent livers and are actively involved in the gyms. My top business ideas for them (some of which are already in place)
1. Elder gyms - gyms geared towards folks over 50 with programs that target issues that might affect that age group and older.
2. Travel companies that cater to the 50+ crowd. Set up tours and packages that appeal to that group.
3. The concierge services for the elderly that want company or a little help shopping and doing their daily routines.
4. Set up companies that are comprised of these folks as panels of experts that help people set up businesses, develop their ideas...etc. In other words, have them act as consultants. They can work part time and make some money to keep their lifestyle great. Many of them may be retired but bored and looking for something to do.
5. Invest in land abroad and build and sell timeshares to babyboomers who would like exotic locations for their travel destinations but don`t want to have to keep looking for a place to stay. It seems to be a growing trend.
That`s my 10 cents.
LOL to Blu..., I`m a baby boomer and yes I have money and yes I travel but no, I don`t go to any gym(s) and thanks for your 10 cents worth. LOL, did you mean comprised in number 4?
Yes I did. Sigh...old...ummm...I mean....getting older is affecting my eyesight and typing...sniff. Time to be a consultant!
I was fortunate to find my niche in the promotional advertising industry, selling B2B, over 28 years ago. And I'm more passionate about it today than I was when it was all so new and exciting to me.
It's a great industry, that the average person either is born into it through a family member or else discovers it after retirement from their life-long career.
Starting from scratch wasn't easy, especially for a sole-bread winner, but the long-term rewards were definitely worth the lean years in the beginning.
Now, my business is relatively recession and disaster-proof, having survived a direct hit from Hurricane Rita and all the economic turmoil of the past 4 years. In spite of the current conditions, I just finished my latest sales year with a 38% increase in sales and started the new year with a 25% increase for September.
I'll consider retirement in 38 years at my 97th birthday. No way do I want to quite prematurely.
And I encourage others to explore the options of what could be the best low-cost, home-based opportunity for them today!
I just got on board with Prepaid Legal. I think the time is ripe for small business owners to have the same legal counsel that big corporations have without haveing to bankrupt themselves in the process. The compensation plan is sound, they`ve been in business for 35 years and they have a great product that is needed more than ever and small business owners get to write it off as a cost to doing business! If you`re interested go to: www.prepaidlegal.com/hub/bethmergens
BTW...you can buy their stock on the NY Stock Exchange...how`s that for a sound company!

I agree that I have often used MLM and the term "scam" interchangeably. I appreciate the comment from IdeasandInnovations on December 29 that the two are not interchangeable.
If a legitimate product is being bought and sold through MLM, it is a legitimate business not a scam.
We also often get caught in "scams" because we fail to read everything associated with the program.
1) Be sure a legitimate product is being bought and sold (whether it`s marketing tools or health products),
2) If you get involved in an MLM, be sure the products are something you yourself use, and
3) Investigate the program as much as you can before getting involved.
