I used to think I was never much of a reader because I’m always so picky about novels and usually end up getting sleepy halfway through a chapter. That, and being in school, more reading was usually the last thing I wanted to do. But as I’ve grown into my young adult life, I’ve realized that love the inspiration I can pull from self-development books; and I love that they can touch on so many different areas – faith, mentality, even in network marketing.

You usually pay a fee in order to “start your business,” and after that, the process can be as active or as passive as you want. However, be prepared that if you yourself are going to be very passive with the business, you can expect your income to mirror that.
