Tips Tricks & Warnings

  • The most popular warning for possible investors is "invest the money that you can afford to lose."
  • Never make really huge investments without doing huge amount of prior research. Not because one person said it's good, you will follow immediately. Double check or even triple check on the company before making any important decisions.
  • If any information is unclear, never hesitate to clarify. Just because another person guaranteed that the program is good does not mean that you can be lazy and just make decisions right away. Consider the different angles of information and see how comfortable you are about them.
  • Always believe in the saying, "If it's too good to be true, it probably is.". Always be logical before making any decisions and never act on impulse just because you are too impressed with what is being presented to you.
  • Consult various forums online and see what other people have to say about the program or company. Oftentimes, forums are such a good source of feedback because people give their opinion and comments there based on their personal experiences. What you normally read in forums are purely based on real experiences.
  • Clarify how you are going to get paid and never invest too much without trying to see if your investment comes back. It's always better to be safe than sorry. Tread with caution by doing little steps at the beginning to see if it's all worth it.
