    - Great Mentors - Company pays for licensing - Intensive preparation to pass licensing - Great Training


    - Pay 35k to start (You can make this much as an assistant manager at burger king!) - Door to Door sales --- I thought how difficult can this be? right? well, wrong!! Very, very difficult. You must be ready to face rejection daily, every minute of your day. There is no guidance as to what neighborhoods to door knock so you are half blind hoping however answers the door has money, granted we are passed the shutting the door on your face, getting the cops called on and unsafe neighborhoods. Very very long hours to try to build your business 13+ easily writing thank you cards until 11pm at night. I am sure it can be a very rewarding career later, but not willing to sacrifice my life at such extent. ohh and Don't forget the weather conditions of your particular region. 110 degrees outside? guess what? you and your suit are sweating like pigs door knocking 1000 houses a day to be lucky and get a hand full of phone numbers, half wrong (because most sane people don't give out their phone numbers to a stranger at their door step) and the other half with no intention to do business. Very disappointed that there was no pipeline to get people started or any kind of leads.

    Advice to Management

    Door knocking works in small towns; such as the ones Jones intended to back more than 50yrs ago. The world continues to change and door knocking in metropolis is absurd.
