How fast can I get to breakeven / profitablility?

In many ways this depends on the individual's capability, willingness to workhard and listen to instruction.  A very strong sales closer could be very profitable after only a few months based on the upfront income from signing on accounts.  However, we would recommend that you have 6 to 12 months of working capital available and assume that 100% of revenue generated will be reinvested into the business.   While not required, we strongly recommend hiring a TRADEbroker immediately and unless you and your spouse work extremely well together, we recommend this person be a non-family member.  While this introduces a cost to the operation and requires finding an office right away, it dramatically increases your presence and allows someone else to service the clients while you are busy adding new members.  Hiring the "right" first TRADEbroker is critical to making the time to true profitability as short as possible.
