Today in the internet age everyone is constantly bombarded with advertisements about making money online. It looks like every website or email you read there is some type of message about make money with this business opportunity or make money with that business opportunity without lifting a finger. And for the individual that is really looking to become an entrepreneur or at least make a part time income without working at McDonald's this can be very confusing. In fact it even discourages some people from even giving it a try because they think all business opportunities are a scam. Well they could not be any more wrong and it's a shame. The fact is they are vast and very legitimate and for the reason I decided to make sure sure you know what a business opportunity is and even list some examples.

Much like in the network marketing industry the successful individual can make well over a six figure income and enjoy life on their terms.
The last business opportunity I would like to mention is an eBay business. Everyone has heard of eBay and chances are they have even bought from a vendor on eBay. However, most people think that in order to make a bundle on eBay you have to have a collection of antiques that can bring in a fortune. The actual reality is that anyone can start selling on eBay with just about any product imaginable. You can contract with a drop shipper and sell their products, find good deals at garage sales and sell that on eBay, write an informational book on something you …
