I, like many others whose reports I've read, was convinced by the "interviewer" from Startup Essentials that an Internet based home business was a sure thing...assuming I bought there program. It was presented as being air-tight. They provided the tools necessary to set-up a site, a "24 hour" customer service line where "experts" would help with questions, data bases for perusal in terms of product selection and sales potential, ect...In addition, the time commitment was "5-10 hours a week" and the business should be set up in 1-2 months. (Most were up and running "in a month.") Moreover, they pretended to genuinely interested in my sucuess based on the fact that they'd recieve a percentage of the profit generated by the site.

Well, I was pumped, that is until I got into the logistical end of the program...my lord!! The "educational" element of the program would have taken my longer than many semster long courses that I took in college! I persuded for a month or so (When I HAD the free time) and final lost momentum as my duties for my other two jobs increased. I would have never invested the money if I had not been lied to about the time commitment. Also, when I have had question, I could never get through via phone to speak with anyone!

It's now tax time, and I need questioned answered about the fees that I've been charged and I find out they've changed their phone number! This is obviously a breech of contract, as part of the agreement was that they provide 24 hour "experts" for consol.
