Aside from the blatant scams, many times they are the victims of "here today - gone tomorrow" scenarios of repeat offender, 'business' generator operators.
Along with the usual revshare clone scripts, matrices, high priced education and altcoin trading scam stuff, there are others that are not cheap to participate in when you find you have effectively lost your shirt when the program disappears!
A good, legitimate business will be around for a long time and takes focus, effort and 'stickability' to grow.
Continual 'trend' program jumping leaves people still struggling to make a penny with the first program shown - and end up getting stuck with multiple monthly outgoings - which they eventually cancel after losing faith and money.
NOTE: ALL business opportunities require the input of an amount money to make them work!
I have ONE 'CORE' pro-active + passive business around precious metals and cryptocurrency.
I have ONE pro-active business around cryptocurrency training and cryptocurrency microtrading.
I have SEVERAL 'PASSIVE' programs that I put money into and let time elapse so the money returns a profit
This gives me DIVERSIFICATION and RISK SPREAD and MULTIPLE SOURCES of potential income.
Any new business started has used profits made in the core business plus a little more seed money.
If you are NOT going to recruit and sponsor then you WILL need reasonable start capital in any passive program.
A percentage of my profits is put into an evergreen asset like Swiss bullion gold (at the best price thanks to SGG).
Always start with ONE business and build it to see a return on profits before starting another.
Don't dilute your available seed money until you are making more seed money.
Never use money that is needed in your daily life, work with money you can afford to risk!
