Question by nestprop: What is the best home-based business to start with a small investment that does NOT involve MLM?
I am looking to start my own business. I have only a small amount of capital to invest. I would like to hear the comments and experiences of others who have done so successfully. I am not interested in MLM of any type.

You may get tons of responses to this question from people who indeed want you to join their MLM deal, claiming that “it’s not MLM” even though they want you to recruit people (which IS MLM by any definition). Anything that is a “two up” is actually MLM, even though they will deny it. The best place to find info on this is to go to various forums that deal with this subject, rather than browsing the Internet. The Internet search engines are LOADED with recruiters who have gotten to the top of search pages and will try to give you wonderful testimonies about how their people have made outrageous amounts of money in very little time (and that your small “investment” will be made back in a week or so). I’ve been looking for something legitimate to do from home for several years and as of yet I have only found MLM companies that mask themselves as “non MLM” just to get your money. Good luck with your search, but again, be aware of the “two up” system and by all means AVOID GIFTING PROGRAMS LIKE THE PLAGUE! If you have ever gotten involved in one you know what a pyramid scam they are. You will always either come out on the short end of things or rob others “below you” in the pyramid of their hard earned money. Gifting is illegal and a scam and has ruined many people (but it, too, masks itself as a legitimate way to make money from home).
