    I have been working at Best Version Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a publisher for three years with BVM, I am confident in saying that the role of Publisher provides autonomy, esteem, financial freedom, freedom of time and a joyful life. The culture and leadership is unparalleled in that each member of the BVM team embraces professional will, a compassionate heart, a fun-loving spirit and humility. This is an organization in which it is okay to make mistakes. The camaraderie between the Publishers throughout North America is remarkable and the ongoing learning opportunities provided in order to support the continued growth of each individual publisher's business is top-notch. I would encourage individuals who possess a strong entrepreneurial spirit along with a solid, self-driven work ethic and the desire to build a life of financial freedom and freedom of time to really learn more about the opportunities afforded to us at Best Version Media. I am so grateful to be a part of this team!

    Cons

    To become a successful Publisher you really have to continuously challenge yourself to step outside of your comfort zone. This is often a difficult and somewhat painful process as in doing so you're forced to come to terms with your own shortcomings and weaknesses. The good news is that no one in this company is judging you. You are simply evaluating your own habits, hang ups and mindsets. However, the rewards in challenging yourself to become the best version of yourself far outweigh the discomfort required to get there.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to thank the founders and leaders of Best Version Media for the personal sacrifices they have made since the inception of the company. The opportunities that they have created for the members of the BVM were made possible only through these sacrifices coupled with their vision, belief and commitment to create the opportunity for others, like myself, to reach amazing places and to continue to grow.

    I worked at Best Version Media full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great management, you could not even hope to have better. A warm and nurturing company culture. Help is always available when you need it. Great income opportunity. Appointments are fun. Cary, NC is an open opportunity at the moment.

    Cons

    None. My reasons for leaving BVM are all personal and not at all the fault of the company. One must be able to cold call every day in order to succeed, not a con, just a fact of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    You can be very creative in finding events and writing about new residents that you meet.

    Cons

    Business support from the local community is vital for receiving new feature stories each month.

    Advice to Management

    It's important to know the demographics of the population served, one size does not fit all communities with this business model.

    Pros

    Autonomy / independence. Challenging and rewarding. Amazing training and support system. Current compensation plan. Management. Opportunity / potential. Anybody can do this from any background, you just have to want success more than you want failure. Company culture.

    Cons

    Working for free for a period of time until you get going.

    Advice to Management

    I listed management under the "Pro" category because it is a Pro, and you are all pros. Keep doing what you're doing! Also, sometimes there are circumstances that don't fit under a blanket corporate rule and when dealing with people that have an entrepreneurial mind, the type of individuals that typically enjoy flexibility and problem solving, maybe exceptions can be made if it's beneficial to the company such as an area where potential profit is being missed out on.

    Pros

    The income potential is fantastic, there are great people to work with, and there is tons of support through the BVM community. This job is really one of a kind.

    Cons

    It's tough to find a downside, but I would say making the outgoing calls in the mornings is the toughest part... but once you get past that, there is not stopping you!
