    - Paid licensing and training
    - Unlimited resources
    - Great opportunity for those with many connections or family money

    Cons

    - Very short time frame to build business before being let go
    - No administrative support

    - Need administrative support for people in training
    - Need "sales manager" to help develop new business and ideas
    - Need budget for business development
