The same question again: “Would it be smart to look at an international business opportunity?”
An international business opportunity:
+ where you can do business online in Europe, the United States and (soon) the Middle East.
+ in a market that is growing very fast.
+ where you have remaining low cost while your benefits increase.
+ where we use ‘try before you buy’, ‘drop shipping’ and a payment model where you get paid based on your performance.
+ where you decide with whom you work, where you work, when you work and how much you work.
