Make It All





Donald Trump once said :

"Money was never a big motivation for me except as a way to keep score. The real excitement is playing the game"

So what is your score in the Internet Marketing game ??

If you are anything like most people that are trying to make a living in a work at home Internet business opportunity, then it is probably a big fat zero !!

Well you have finally found the right site to get all of the help that you need to start erasing all of those big fat zeros in your bank account !!

First and foremost, I would like to assure you that you will not find a bunch of hard sell, "buy this program and make a gazillion bucks over night" garbage anywhere on this site.

I've been where you are right now back in 1996 and I've had to learn everything I know about Internet Marketing on my own mainly thru the trial and error method and I do not want to see you have to go thru that kind of struggle.

This page may look like it's a lot of reading but let me assure you, it will be well worth your time to really dig into this entire web site and check out everything we have to offer.

As you get further into this site, you'll find that I'll be recommending some programs and software that have worked very well for me in producing a steady, reliable income.

It is entirely up to you if you want to give them a try and see if they will work for you.

You'll also notice that you will NOT be seeing any phony, doctored up income statements from Clickbank or any other payment processors anywhere on this site.

Okay, let's get into this a little more, shall we ?

Being Your Own Boss Has It's
Rewards And Drawbacks

Much of the payback people get from their entrepreneurial ventures is personal.

Having the independence and flexibility to make time for family, hobbies or other activities is a huge draw to the entrepreneurial lifestyle and one of the major reasons for wanting to start an online business.

It also provides not only a business opportunity, but also many opportunities to do something you have a passion for than spend the majority of your waking hours performing tasks you have little real interest in doing in the first place.

And, increasingly, location independence is a huge benefit ---- many people want to live in a particular geographic area ---- say, close to the mountains or by the ocean and beaches --- or perhaps in a place where there aren't an abundance of jobs..

Avoiding long commutes is a growing priority as is the ability to work virtually from any place in the world to enable a more footloose and fancy free lifestyle.


You will also reap extensive professional benefits from your entrepreneurial endeavors.

For starters,

  • You can advance more rapidly than you would in a traditional office setting.

  • You won't be limited by what your boss thinks.

  • You won't be held back because you lack experience or seniority.

  • You have to accept the fact that you will succeed or fail on your own merits.

  • You will also be able to fully leverage your creativity and ingenuity.

Rather than simply carrying out other people's ideas or implementing their visions, you reap the professional benefits of any exciting insights or "AH-HAA' moments you get on your own.

You can be aggressively proactive at pursuing exciting new ideas for products and/or services, and you can pave a path or create a legacy for those who wish to follow in your footsteps.

Finally, you will thrive due to the sheer adrenalin factor.

Entrepreneurs are challenged and surprised every day, and because of this they grow at a much faster rate professionally than their counterparts in traditional employment situations.

And because you're the boss, you can invest in further education and training as you want or need it.

As an example, at 68 yrs. old, I decided to present myself with a challenge. I wanted to see if I still had the "brain power" to compete with a bunch of 20 and 30 something classmates and get a college degree.

Well, much to my surprise, here I am at 72 yrs old and I just recently graduated from Kaplan University with a degree in Internet and Web Development and a GPA of 3.98.

If I must say so myself, that's not too damn shabby for an old man whose brain has been out of "school mode" for over 50 years. I'm pretty damn proud of that accomplishment.

Financial Benefits of Owning Your Own Business

The financial benefits of running your own work at home business opportunity can become substantial in a very short time.

Don't get me wrong --- I'm NOT telling you that you'll make a million bucks overnight like some web sites would have you believe.

Research performed by Thomas Stanley and William Danko for their best-selling book, "The Millionaire Next Door" found that self-employed entrepreneurs were four times more likely to be millionaires than those in traditional employer/employee roles. Also, "The Millionaire Next Door" is some pretty good reading that you might want to check out.

When you own your own online business, your earning potential is theoretically unlimited --- you can go as far as your business ideas will take you.

You also benefit directly from your own success.

The fruits of your labors belong to you
 and you only !!!

You can take as much or as little out of your business proceeds as you choose.

And you are not tethered to the economic ups and downs --- and whims of a traditional employer.

You make and reap the financial rewards of your own hard work.


Let me make ONE THING perfectly clear here:

  • Your Income May (and WILL DEFINITELY) Fluctuate Considerably

In 99.9999% out of 100 cases, you will not have the comfort of that steady paycheck coming in every week.

What you will be selling to your customers or billing to your clients is what you will be receiving and all of your business expenses will have to be paid out of that amount.

You will inevitably experience some dry spells or have times when your resources are stretched to the limit.

And you may need to look beyond your own means for the cash to grow your business or even to keep your doors open if times get tough.

  • You Will Definitely Need To Be Self-Sufficient

You will definitely have to be a disciplined self starter. And depending on the type of business you start, your goals, or the speed at which your business will grow, you may be working on your own most of the time.

You won't have the traditional "network" of co-workers to turn to for support or assistance.

If your computer breaks down, you'll have to figure out how to get it back up and running again as quickly as possible. Or, as in my own case, have an excellent repair guy who makes "house calls" that will work with you to get you back up and running smoothly as quickly as possible.

You'll either do your own bookkeeping or you'll have to find a good accountant.

And you won't have the built-in social structure of the traditional workplace.

  • You Will Definitely Have To Work A Lot Harder And Longer Than You Would In A Traditional Office Atmosphere

This is a given for the entrepreneurial lifestyle --- self-employed individuals tend to work longer hours than the typical employee because they are driven by an inner force to succeed as quickly as possible.

You don't get paid for the time you're not working. This means that you will lose revenue for each day you are sick and for vacation days.

Moreover, it may take time to get adequately paid for work you actually do --- many entrepreneurs have to continue working their "day" jobs until their entrepreneurial ventures are established to the point where they can walk into the office one day and tell their boss:

"Take this J.O.B. and Shove It ---I'm Outta Here!!!"

  • You Must Be A Fast Learner

You will be largely jumping into the great unknown when you start your own business.

You may have a deep understanding of your professional field --- nursing or engineering or culinary arts --- yet it's a given that you will be confronted hourly with unanticipated challenges.

Your ability to learn the ropes and pick up things quickly will be one of the prime determinants of your success.

  • Do I Have The Right Stuff To Go Into Business?

A lot of people ask themselves that question and answer "YES".

The situation of our current economy is a fitting time to check out one's entrepreneurial DNA.

More than half the companies on the 2013 Fortune 500 list were launched during the economic downturns according to the Kauffman Foundation.

About that "stuff" --- Money and education help; however, other traits and conditions also count.

Here are eight questions to help appraise your business aptitudes and also to help you determine if you have the necessary "Entrepreneurial DNA" to get an online business established:

(1) - Are You Willing And Able To Take Financial Risks?

To quote a local assistant director for the Small Business Development Center at our local State University, "They'll need to use some of their own financial resources --- at least 20% of start-up funds --- especially if they are looking for a small-business loan".

Failure isn't in the entrepreneur's vocabulary, but consider this --- U.S. commercial bankruptcies increased 52 % the first five months of the year (2013) compared with the same period last year (2012).

(2) - Are The People At Home In Your Corner?

Sometimes it may be very difficult for you to make your family and friends understand that when you are in your designated workspace and working on your business that they should treat that time just like when you were at the office, or whatever.

When Cousin Joe who has been unemployed for the last six months pops in and says" Hey, let's go have a couple of beers and shoot a few games of pool" or the other half says something like "Honey, can you go to the store for me?"

You have to have the guts and gumption to say "NO, I'm working".

AND, they must understand that what you are doing is exactly the same thing as if you got up at 5AM and spent an hour and a half to get to the office and spent at least eight or nine hours at the office and then had to fight your way thru the traffic for another hour and a half to get back home.

Really, the only difference is that you are working for yourself on your own business.

(3) - Can You Work Long Hours And Make Other Lifestyle Sacrifices?

Fifty-One hours a week was the average reported by small-business owners responding to a Wells Fargo/Gallup survey earlier this year (2010).

Fifteen percent of respondents said they work 70 hours or more in a typical week.

(4) - Are You Decisive?

You can never be afraid to make a mistake. You should always take ownership of your decisions.

To cope with bad decisions, make sure you understand where you failed --- and decide how to improve.

Also, it's very important to leave some time to recharge the mental batteries by doing something totally and completely separated from your business like taking a walk, go for a run in the park, riding a bicycle, etc.

(5) - Are You Creative?

You don't need to be an inventor. Ray Kroc did not invent hamburgers, and he didn't even start McDonald's.

A creative or idea person simply needs to be able to see opportunities where others can't --- to be newer, faster, fresher, lower cost, service enhanced.

Deborah Shane, owner-founder of the Train With Shane business education and mentoring firm said, "The creativity is finding a niche, and creating a brand message for that niche."

(6) - Are You Persistent?

"Most times, success doesn't happen on the first try" said Jerry Ross, executive director for the Orlando-based Disney Entrepreneur Center.

"Sticking to it three or four months longer than you planned could mean the market will come around," said Ross, who has "started, run and sold" several businesses.

A recent Ace Hardware Entrepreneurship Study ranked perseverance third among most-desirability traits (42%) topped only by hard-working (60%) and drive-motivation to succeed (57%).

(7) - Can You Communicate Well?

Locally based Surgery Consultants of America specializes in development of day surgery centers. Company president and founder Caryl Serbin handles most speaking engagements and seminars presented to physician groups and administrators of surgical centers and hospitals.

"I write the journal articles and prepare the PowerPoint presentations, with Caryl's input" said Judith English, vice president. "Caryl has the ability to connect with people, even ones she barely know" English said.

Can you communicate with others on this level?

(8) - Can You Work With A Partner?

It can be a fantastic way to grow your business and share the workload. Think it through and do your homework before taking the plunge.

Several years ago I started a business with a partner that ended up to be totally frightful and it just about ruined my business.

Sometimes, working with a partner can extremely enhance a business because the partner excels in certain skills that you might not have.

To Sum It All Up ....

Really and honestly, there are no right or wrong answers to these questions, they just help people assess their strengths and weaknesses.

Most people can learn how a business works and acquire the related technical skills.

If an individual is lazy, or is unable to make decisions ... or lacks support from the family, then the business is doomed right from the start.

I hope that you have found this information to be helpful in making your decision to start your own online Internet based business.
