What Is Biz Opp Detective?

The primary aim of Biz Opp Detective is to unearth realistic home business ideas for you that actually work in the real world.

Not pie-in-the-sky stuff. No big promises of million-dollar returns. Just ways to turn your spare time into cash. Businesses that any Australian — at any age — can start from your kitchen table in just a few hours a week to add a few hundred bucks to your income.

Crucially, these businesses would have to be scalable. That means the money you make from them would rise incrementally the more time you spend on them.

The idea, then, is that you have something you can build up in your spare time that may eventually give you enough money to quit your day job. Effectively, your ‘side’ business becomes your main gig.

Our second aim is to name and shame the crooks, scams and schemes that also, unfortunately, pollute the biz-opp arena.

Heaven knows there’s an awful lot of rubbish out there. Big, crazy promises of fast cash. The dream of being your own boss ‘next year’ from some ‘no-brainer’ scheme that makes all the right noises... but in reality is just some rubbish MLM scam — where you’re working hard to make someone else rich... and you rarely see the kind of money that can change your life.

It struck us that (apart from a couple of crappy, poorly organised forums) there’s no credible place in Australia where you can go to get good, impartial, independent advice on home business opps from experts who don’t have a vested interest in your cash.

So we’re stepping in.

Each month, our editors (Australian home business veterans with 50 years PLUS of experience between them) run the rule over the biz opps/seminars/courses/systems that are doing the rounds and give you their unbiased view on whether they are worth a crack or not.

You’ll be surprised. It’s not what you think. Our guys don’t just bash the spruiky stuff for the sake of knocking over an easy target. They’ll also look behind the hype. They study, research and provide a thorough analysis of whether or not you could actually make money.

And here’s a promise: we will not receive a SINGLE CENT in commission, affiliate payment or kickback from any biz opp we positively review.

This is a 100% independent service. We call it how we see it. Our impartiality sets us apart from everyone else in this occasionally murky community. If our editors say something is good — it’s because we genuinely believe it’s good. Not because we’re making money on the back end. The credibility of this new service is extremely important to us.

As a reader, you’ll be encouraged to write in and tell us about biz opps you’d like our editors to review.

We don’t believe you will find any other resource that can do what our new service can do for you. If you know of one, we’d love to hear about it. If not, then this could be the chance you’ve been waiting for.

Our goal is to make you wealthier... more independent... happier... and prouder... by setting up and running your own successful home business. We will work hard to help you make that happen — you have our word on that.

We’d love for you to become one of our first readers. It won’t cost you a lot of money to get these ideas. And, if at the end of your first year, you haven’t started your own business... or you haven’t made a cent from your endeavours, you should cancel your subscription — because we haven’t done our job.

That’s how strongly we feel about our goal to make you wealthier than you are now.

Biz Opp Detective contains step-by-step home business blueprints and ideas every month. Some are online. Others are traditional offline ideas. You’ll get a ‘how-to’ guide... plus our best appraisal of how much money you could make.

You will also learn more about becoming an entrepreneur: the risks, the costs, the business strategies, the commitment required... and the potential rewards this lifestyle offers — provided you’re prepared to put in the work to make it happen.

Plus you’ll build up a library of impartial, independent biz opp reviews from our experts — people you can trust to tell you the truth.

How often will I receive Biz Opp Detective?

Twice a month. Your main issue is published on the 18th of every month and you’ll receive a fortnightly update two weeks after that.

Do the ideas I’ll read about carry risks?

Any decision you make that might affect your financial life contains an element of risk. In any moneymaking or entrepreneurial endeavour there are some risks that you can control, and others you can only guard against. General economic factors: inflation, interest rates, stock or asset market value fluctuations are all risks to every kind of investment – whether stocks, real estate, commodities, art or fine wine. It is important to make well-judged investments based on thorough research in order to minimise your risk. It is also important to speak with a financial advisor in order to better understand these risks and market terminology to help assist you in making better decisions for your long-term future.
