    I have been working at Best Version Media full-time


    The level of autonomy to run your OWN business with the support of Best Version Media is definitely a pro for a self starter who knows how to get the job done without a “boss”- but the support you will receive from others in the company is consistent and effective.


    This job wouldn’t be right for someone who needs to punch a clock and be told what to do. You need a high level of conviction and a desire to help your community.

The manager called on time, and the interview lasted an hour, and we discussed thoroughly all aspects of the Positions available, what would be the best fit for myself and the company. Roles and responsibilities, commission schedule, training, and all my questions were answered.
