Considering Setting Up Your Own Internet Business? – 4 Essential Questions!

Here is an article I fond by Graham Bray. I’ve be through the thing he is going to talk to you about and I can honestly say they are all real concerns that deserve serious consideration.

Can you work from home

Work From Home

To many people the thought of starting up an internet business is really appealing. Just imagine – you can work from home, you can work the hours you want, you have no boss breathing down your neck, the ‘gurus’ promise you massive profits for very little work. Sounds wonderful doesn’t it? Who wouldn’t want to opt out of the rat-race for a better quality of life?


But before you jump to your preferred life-style, there are a number of key questions that you need to consider. They may sound boring, but a reality check is essential.

1. Is the grass really greener? For whatever reasons you may hate your job. Perhaps it’s the monotony of it, or perhaps the commute is a drag, or your boss is an idiot. But what are the benefits? At least you may have security. Are there any other perks to the job? Perhaps you’ve got a company car that would be lost if you quit. How would you replace it? Before making any life-changing decisions you need to sit down with a coffee and a piece of paper and really consider the pros and cons of your job. Is it really so bad?

2. Can you afford to jump? At the moment you’ve got your day job. It pays you a regular salary, it covers your national insurance, and if you’re lucky you may be contributing to a pension or health scheme. If you quit today, how would you replace your income? Start-up businesses do not start producing profits overnight (despite what the ‘gurus’ promise). It may take a year or more before any profits start appearing. How would you cope with these financial pressures?

3. Could you really cope with working from home? It all sounds really appealing – get up when you want, go the gym when you want, work when you want. But working from home can be very lonely. We are naturally social creatures, and we need daily interactions with others. Just try staying at home for a day or so and see how you feel. For the majority of people the experience would be intolerable. It’s something you need to seriously consider.

4. Just what do you want to do? Have you really got a sensible game plan for giving up your day job? You may have skills in a profession such as banking or teaching – so why on earth buy into a franchise cleaning wheelie bins! The undemanding nature of a ‘non-professional’ job may seem really appealing, but having tried some of these myself I can guarantee that the repetition and daily grind will drive you up the wall.

Please rest assured that I’m not suggesting for one moment that you should give up on your dreams. But what I am suggesting is that you should go forward with both eyes open and not fall for some romantic notion of a better life beyond the 9 to 5. Plan to succeed and not to fail. Perhaps a preferred option would be to start by going part-time and taking one step at a time?

Whatever you choose to do I wish you success. As Sergeant Phil Esterhaus frequently reminded us in “Hill Street Blues”

“Hey, let’s be careful out there.”

It is Essential When Setting Online Business Goals to Be Sure That They are Achievable

Many people become confused when it comes to the difference between a goal and a dream. The main point to remember is that a dream is more abstract and non-specific whereas a goal is rooted in reality. The problem with these 2 terms being interchangeable is that too many people think that a dream can be a goal and they end up becoming disillusioned when they don’t achieve results.

What people need to realize is that a dream can actually be a goal, but the treatment of these two concepts should not be the same. The romantic notions in achieving one’s dreams cannot be applied to the realistic notions in achieving one’s business goals online. This means that as with all romances, a dream that does not become reality may be fated or may be fine, but an unrealized goal is because there was no real work done and is therefore a real, tangible failure.

Setting business goals should be more short-term and should be achievable in a shorter period of time, which in the long run, may lead to the realization of long-term aspirations, or as most people call it, dreams. Thus, a goal needs to involve factors that are under the control of the goal setter. To reach the realization of any online income goal, it is important to include the amount of time and effort that is put into the project. Focusing on one’s condition and capabilities is essential to making a goal attainable.

Goals, even the most achievable ones, are usually still lofty, but they can be divided into certain steps that get closer and closer until the big picture is realized. Take for example a catering business that sets a goal to sell 10,000 cup cakes in a month. For that goal, milestones can be set for every 1,000 cupcakes sold. Every time a milestone goal is achieved, the goal setter gets more motivated and determined to inch closer to the ultimate goal, and he or she is kept on track as well.

The last point is that there must be a plan or a strategy in place for every goal. Online income goals are often lofty and unless proper steps are put in place to reach that goal, the goal will remain just a lofty goal. These steps to achieving business goals are concretized by having plans and executing them properly. Of course, these plans need to be carefully set up to always be in sync with the goal for success to be achieved.

Secrets to Building Your Rolodex

Build Trust

Build Trust

I believe building your Rolodex should be one of those activities that is always at the top of your mind. Your never going to be a screaming success by doing it all by your self. So take a quick read of the paragraph from Steve Siebolt below and learn some tips and tricks. Click the link at the end of the paragraph to watch his video. Enjoy and share.

The Secret of World-Class Success and Security

By Steve

Have you ever wondered how ordinary people break into the circles of the wealthy and successful? How do you gain the trust of someone who earns 10, 20 or 100 times as much as you? I get this question in almost every interview I do, and it’s a subject I’ve spent a lot of time studying, and even more time practicing. I started this process in 1984, and it’s still something I employ every day. Not only will it help to catapult your career, but it will give you a level of security for you and your family that most people only dream of. If you’re looking for a job when unemployment is almost 10%, all you need is the right contacts. The ultra-successful and super-rich have contacts and connections all over the world. One phone call and a recommendation and you suddenly have a new job. This may not be fair, but it’s the way the world works for those who understand the system. While the average person is sending out resumes, world class performers are tapping the most powerful people in their network. I was interviewed a few weeks ago by Forbes Magazine, and I spoke at length about this. The reporter almost seemed offended by this strategy, which is a common response. Don’t fall into this trap. Mental toughness is about getting what you want without hurting anyone else, and the fastest way to get what you want is knowing the right people. I didn’t make the rules, but I have made millions following them. And I’m a minnow compared to others who have maximized this concept to its ultimate potential. Keep an open mind as you watch this 6:26 video segment from my national television show, Mental Toughness Secrets of Champions.  As always, I’ll look forward to your comments.   Steve Siebold   ( 6:26 )  GO TO STEVE”S BLOG TO WATCH HIS VIDEO


Making Money with Articles: Article Directories

Article Writing - Work From Home

Article Writing - Work From Home

Article directories are websites that house free articles. These articles are usually put there by whoever owns the copyright to them as a promotion method. Each article has the owners byline placed under it so that those who eventually read the article will know who wrote it (or at least who owns it) and will be able to get in contact with or visit their website for further information.

Articles directories are a great place to put your articles so that they will make you money. By using this method, people who are interested in your product or service will see your article, view you as an expert in the subject, and will visit your website. Even if you cannot write or do not have any knowledge on the subject on which you are promoting (for example for you run an affiliate website), you can always hire a writer to do the work for you. Getting quality articles written will be expensive up front, but they will pay for themselves in no time, either through affiliate sales or selling your own services, and everything from then on is pure profit.

Let’s take a real life example. Imagine that you are an accountant working from home. You write an article on an accounting topic and place it on various article directories. Those who are looking for the subject you wrote about will read your article, see that you have the knowledge and skill that is needed to do a job for them, and visit your website or contact you via e-mail. Your article just gained you a new client who may use your services regularly, but will definitely give you a nice profit at least once.

Furthermore, since you have posted it on a free article directory, others who have affiliate websites about accounting will inevitably use your article for their website. Since they must attach your byline to it, this will bring you even more exposure for every website that re-posts your article. This because you will be benefiting of off the traffic that they get to their website.

There are numerous article directories out there for you to utilize. Two places I would recomend would be and A simple google search would yield you hundreds of more places. Your bet best is to put a copy of each of your articles on every one for maximum exposure. It will eventually help to bring more traffic and customers to your website, which will lead to new orders and more profit.
