Fun Easy Shop

If a potential customer doesn't buy your service, you might still capture a lead through a Fun Easy Shop system.

Fun Easy Shop is a global shopping portal where prices go down as you bid.

There are 3 types of auction, including Xpress and Zero. In zero auctions, items can actually be sold for nothing. All the details are online at Fun Easy Shop.

This is a particularly interesting business opportunity for health care professionals, such as medical doctors, nurses, psychologists, and even chiropractors and massage therapists, who are looking for passive streams of income. Many get involved with multi-level (multilevel / MLM) and direct selling schemes promoting dietary and nutritional supplements. But these MLM schemes can be legally perilous (see MULTILEVEL MARKETING AND DIRECT SALES: Dietary Supplements and Nutritional Products -- Legal Pitfalls And Guidance For Your Business).

State conflict of interest rules (not to mention Stark and anti-kickback rules for medical doctors (MDs and DOs)) can create significant legal obstacles, and physicians who ignore these rules in order to sell nutritional products and dietary supplements to their patients do so at their peril.

Even nonphysicians who promote this stuff can run into legal danger. So many pitch the "science" behind the latest formula but there really is no science, certainly not the kind of science accepted in mainstream journals, and at any rate, one does not get any training in science simply by being on conference calls where enthusiastic uplines pitch the latest conjecture about this antioxidant or that supposed discovery about the human body.

On the other hand, a purely virtual opportunity may be just right for the temperament of this age.

Each person has to do their own due diligence in order to ascertain whether a particular opportunity is right for them. There are no short cuts to reading the fine print of affiliate program policies and procedures, in order to understand the pros and cons, limitations and potential risks. It is also useful to consult independent legal counsel regarding any potential opportunity, and to suss out legal perils and pitfalls before committing any funds to a business venture.

That is why the disclaimer at Being Central speaks to the inability to forecast results. Promoters often get themselves in trouble by exaggerating sales and making income claims.

To paraphrase an old favorite quote, in our search for financial freedom we must be as discerning as we are enthusiastic.
