Ideas for Home Based Businesses

Aug 17, 2007
Looking for ideas for home based business?

Well, that really depends on what you want and what you are willing to do to achieve your goals.

If you believe some of the hype out there, then all you need to do is "sign here" and we'll send $100,000s in an envelope every month to your mailing address.

Well, let me put that myth to bed right away - Anyone who spoofs that you can make $1000s online without doing any works is telling blatant lies. Stay away from them!

Online business takes work, it requires planning and most of all it will not work without persistence.

There are many ways you can get started. You can make money online selling the idea of working a home business or you can make money in markets outside the home business arena, niche markets, as they are known in the business.

I am an affiliate marketer, meaning I sell other business owner's products and services for a profit.

In my opinion, this is the best way to earn money online. Why? Well, because it's my business.

Seriously though, not having to sell my own products means I don't have to deal with product delivery and aftersales support which gives me more time to concentrate on building more income streams for my business. It also gives me a lot more time to spend with my family, and doing the things that I like doing, that most certainly don't involve working.

The reason I set up my online business, which has been running now since 1998, was precisely because I wanted more free time and I didn't want to work the 9-5 grind for the rest of my life. Affiliate marketing does this for me more than any other business would.

Think about it! Work 'til your 65 then retire with a measly pension, barely enough to live on. And as the saying goes, then you die...Is that your idea of how you want to live the rest of your life? Obviously not, or you wouldn't be on this page looking to set up your own home based business.

The are many legitimate online businesses with legitimate business owners waiting to help you get started. The main thing is though that you need to realize that there is work involved and like any business it does take some investment. Not nearly as much as it does to set up offline.

We are talking more like dollars to get set up in online business, not $1000s that it would take to start a business in the 'real' world.

If the willingness is there and you're ready to get started and to put in the work then you will surely succeed at whatever you aspire to online. It's not easy but it IS worthwhile.
