When anyone gets started in a Network Marketing business be aware of the hidden costs that may not be mentioned up front. Although some of these "tools" will be beneficial to your business make sure you are the one that decides what tools you want to incorporate into your business (if any). Don't be forced into purchasing things you don't need! Remember, you don't need every tape, book and go to every seminar there is. Your business should not be built on lining the pockets of "Kingpins" that profit tremendously from you being misled.
Build your business by 1)retailing product (yes, that means a customer base)
2)register associates and help them do the same
Did I mention that before you even get started in a business make sure that you have an exceptional product that is the highest of quality
