Effort is definitely one thing that separates the winners from the losers. Plan on working as hard or harder than you ever have in your life to make this kind of money. I have found it’s never as easy as it sounds and many people give up before they ever hit their goals.
This is going to be a “well duh” moment when you read this. Ready? The hot button is Hope! Hope is why people join business opportunities, why they seek them out, and why they’ll sit through your hour long presentation displaying your soaps, lotions, and super powerful vitamins.

Find out more about the industry and decide for yourself if pet grooming, senior care or whatever job you are interested in is really the right career path for you.
