A common theme in the many get-rich-quick home business offerings that are currently available is the emphasis on the lack of effort required to make a substantial income. I am a corporate computer guy. As such, by nature I tend to attempt to apply logic to most things. It absolutely astounds me that people believe that they can work from home and type a few things on their computer each day and then the money will just come flowing in. The promoters claims are that all the hard work has been done for you and everything is automated and simple. All you have to do is PAY to have access to these incredible money making systems. Reverse Funnel System, Road Map to Riches, Passport to Wealth, blah, blah, blah. I say, poppycock & bunkum!Now that said, it would be logical to conclude that indeed, significant money CAN be made with a home based internet business. After all, like millions, I myself do an amazing amount of consumer product shopping online. Someone is making money from marketing to the masses! But I don't believe that the "significant money" can typically be made in the no effort, get-rich-quick manner. Any degree of success WILL take education, direction and qualified mentoring along with a significant effort in the application of what you have been taught. Most work from home internet businesses fail primarily because the objective is to market and sell and the business owner is clueless about even the basic fundamentals required to do that effectively and successfully. There is a LOT more to internet marketing than posting as many classified's as possible and spam eMailing.Now, paying to be EDUCATED is an entirely different prospect to that of paying for a proclaimed money making system which if it fails you have no remedial options to explore because you are not equipped. More of my logic - if something - anything - is not working it must be changed. To make change you must, ideally, have a repertoire of alternative approaches and be skilled in deciding which to deploy dependent upon circumstances. Now why would one think that the same disciplines do not apply to a home based internet business?. Because of the luring advertised guarantee/promise of success?I work from home already in my corporate job but with the current economic climate I decided to explore additional feasible work at home income streams. I was taken aback by the sheer volume of offerings and researching as many as possible continues to be a daunting task. Many that I encounter I immediately discard and those that capture my eye often get defeated by my ingrained skepticism. Searching on keywords "HOME BUSINESS SCAM" and "business name SCAM" assists with discrediting/eliminating process.My search continued in a tenacious manner until I stumbled across the Wealth Funnel System. My first impression was another pay to get-rich-quick promise. But digging deeper, it became apparent that this was different from the masses. The emphasis was on equipping yourself with education that could and should be used in ANY internet business venture. The founder has painstakingly compiled a full suite of tutorials that cover a variety of facets of the internet marketing business, from industry terms to resources to application. THIS would be my repertoire of alternative approaches, I thought. It is sourced by a seasoned professional and in my opinion is the true value of the inevitable business investment. I can exploit the provided income streams and with confidence pursue others independently to grow my business. Somewhat like those that have been to college and pursued marketing as a career...Despite my natural tendency to apply logic , I am also a huge advocate of the old saying "Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained". At minimum I have the resources to learn how to start, manage and grow my business. Also, what is fulfilling is my Wealth Funnel System mentor has NEVER failed to respond to any contact I have initiated. Most of the time the phone is answered on the first attempt.
I was sitting around today and I was trying to figure out what to right about in regards to my next article; its hard because the subjects remain the same but the details change daily. I sat around and decided I would share my thoughts in regards on how Ive made my website successful; Ive done this before but I think Ive figured out a way to express my true feelings in regards to home businesses. I signed a contract my mentor proposed to me, so I can never go too far, and I dont want to; hes been a huge influence on my life as an Internet Marketer and person. I consider myself lucky because its hard to find a person in this business that can truly show you the ropes. Im going to do my best to show everyone how you can make a home business work without breaking that contract.I believe the most important aspect of making a home business work is ones mental outlook on life. You really need to be a positive person in order to make money from home. All of us who can make profits from home usually have a good outlook on all avenues of life. How you approach all areas life will be tested in the home business setting; if youre a quitter, you definitely wont make it in this field. I make mistakes all the time, but I never make the same mistake twice. Its alright to make mistakes; thats how you learn and grow. The home business market is very competitive, and it changes everyday; there are so many smart people out there who know what it takes to be successful. When you start your business youll be up against the majority of these people; as you grow in this business; youll find yourself separating from the competition; you need to separate yourself, if not, you wont make it. The initial learning stage is the most important step; youll make or break your business during that time. Try to tell yourself I CAN DO THIS The positive attitude will be the driving force behind your success. Not everyday is a holiday; how you react to the trials and tribulations will shape your future in the home business market. Its alright to fail in certain areas; its unacceptable not try. You learn from failing and trying new things; if you just copy what someone else is doing youll eventually hit a wall and you wont be able to hurdle that wall because you havent established yourself as an individual in this business. When getting started I suggest you first latch onto someone who is successful; a lot of people in the home business field claim to be successful; guess what? A lot of them arent; they want you to think they are in order for them to make some money off of you. Its important for you to have your own definition of success when starting anything. Some people believe being successful has to do with how much money they make; others relate success to how much free time they have; the list goes on forever. Before you start, establish you own definition of success; once you define success, set your goals. I dont need to make $300 a day to be successful; I need to make enough money where Im happy working from home. Im not a person who likes to work for people; all I need to do is make enough money to support myself, thats my definition of success. I understand why people try to sell others on the aspect of being incredibly wealthy, it works sometimes. I believe in selling people on the truth of the business; if you think you can be rich overnight, youre very wrong. Working from home is very hard, and it takes a lot of time, money, and effort; if it was easy, everyone would be millionaires. This business is so competitive for one reason and one reason only; we all want to work from the comfort of our own home. I believe the best way to find a great mentor is by just being honest and aggressive. Type what youre looking to do in a search engine and youll find whos successful instantly; theyre usually the people with the highest ranking websites. Once you find those websites, contact them personally and see if they are willing to give you hand, a lot of times there too busy, but if you keep it up youll eventually find the right person. If youre reading this, Ive made your job easy; my mentor is Erich Winnecke. I cant go too far with this, like I said, I signed a contract. If your looking to start or improve a home business; I can get you in contact with him, my e-mail address is below.I mentioned competition; if youre looking for competition you came to the right place. Home based businesses are abundant, and they will continue to be so. Its alright though; theres enough potential clients and information to spread around. The great thing about the internet is the ability to learn something new everyday. You WILL face adversity in this business; just stay positive and be willing to learn. A lot of your competitors are giving up their secrets by just advertising their businesses. All you have to do is just check out their websites, you can learn a lot from just analyzing another persons website.Be sure to join a home business forum when you get started, and never stop using it. There are so many people you can learn from. I wouldnt have gotten to where I am today without the help from so many people; granted, were all trying to accomplish the same goals, but were always looking for the easiest and smartest ways to make it happen. Youll be surprised how many people are willing to help you out, but always remember to bring something to the table. If you just take, people will catch on; dont be afraid to share your own successful techniques; the more you share, the more youll gain.Always be true to the game, thats my motto. If youre honest and try to help others, youll be successful. The home based business field is flooded with scam artists; you might get away with being dishonest for a little while, but it will catch up with you in the long run. No one is bigger than the game; find your place and let the rest take care of itself. The more credible you are the more followers and collogues youll have; if you have a strong supporting cast, youll be very successful. All right!! Enough of my psychology; here are some ways I can help you build your home business and make some money from home. I just had to preach for a little bit in order to give you the ethics and guidelines that can help you thrive in this market.Without breeching the contract, Im going to guide you. Like I said, latch onto one person, and then insert yourself into a group of people who are trying to accomplish the same things as you. Try to stay away from programs that want you to sell to your friends and family; Ive always believed in separating business from pleasure. You dont need to rely on your friends and family to be successful; once you become successful, people will come to you. Build a website that will look attractive and have something credible to offer. The next thing you need to do is get people to visit your website. There are many ways to accomplish this. Submit as many articles as possible; you can do this by finding an article submission site on the internet; you write the articles and theyll distribute them for you. Article writing is one of the best ways to get people to your website; once an article is published, its on the web for a long time. Youll get visitors to your website long after you submitted it. Another thing you want to look at doing is creating a blog; a blog is a great place to share your thoughts and feelings about anything. You can even post the articles youve submitted in your blog. Once you enter a blog, PING IT!! Pinging will send your blog out to people looking for things you have to offer or say; remember, be credible; if youre credible, theyll be interested in what you have to say and offer. The next thing you want to do is trade links with other websites. Trading links will help you increase your traffic to your website.You want to trade links with websites that get a lot of visitors; theres no point in trading links with a website that attracts a few visitors. Type in a keyword thats associated with your home business, and trade links with the top ten sites that come up. A lot of the people you associate with in your forum will also want to trade links with you; do it, it builds comradely. The next and best way to advertise is by using search engines; Im not really skilled at this sort of advertising yet; I cant really give you a lot of details here. The one thing I can tell you to do is be careful. Search engine advertising is very competitive, and if you dont know what youre doing, youll loose a lot of money quickly. I suggest you rely on the help of your comrades in your home business forum. Its unfortunate, but a lot of them have failed at search engine advertising, but they picked themselves back up, and will be willing to help you not make the same mistakes they did. Ive been able to minimize my mistakes by observing my fellow home business entrepreneurs, and theyve learned from mine. Learning from each other is the best way to learn; combining knowledge with drive, and dedication will get you very far in this business. I wish you the best of luck and remember to believe in yourself, and HAVE SOME FUN!!!!!
During Infancy--------------- Cleanliness is essential to the infant's health. The principal points to which especial attention must be paid by the parent for this purpose are the following: At first the infant should be washed daily with warm water; and a bath every night, for the purpose of thoroughly cleaning the body, is highly necessary. To bathe a delicate infant of a few days or even weeks old in cold water with a view "to harden" the constitution (as it is called), is the most effectual way to undermine its health and entail future disease. By degrees, however, the water with which it is sponged in the morning should be made tepid, the evening bath being continued warm enough to be grateful to the feelings. A few months having passed by, the temperature of the water may be gradually lowered until cold is employed, with which it may be either sponged or even plunged into it, every morning during summer. If plunged into cold water, however, it must be kept in but a minute; for at this period, especially, the impression of cold continued for any considerable time depresses the vital energies, and prevents that healthy glow on the surface which usually follows the momentary and brief action of cold, and upon which its usefulness depends. With some children, indeed, there is such extreme delicacy and deficient reaction as to render the cold bath hazardous; no warm glow over the surface takes place when its use inevitably does harm: its effects, therefore, must be carefully watched. The surface of the skin should always be carefully and thoroughly rubbed dry with flannel, indeed, more than dry, for the skin should be warmed and stimulated by the assiduous gentle friction made use of. For this process of washing and drying must not be done languidly, but briskly and expeditiously; and will then be found to be one of the most effectual means of strengthening the infant. It is especially necessary carefully to dry the arm-pits, groins, and nates; and if the child is very fat, it will be well to dust over these parts with hair-powder or starch: this prevents excoriations and sores, which are frequently very troublesome. Soap is only required to those parts of the body which are exposed to the reception of dirt. During Childhood---------------- When this period arrives, or shortly after, bathing is but too frequently left off; the hands and face of the child are kept clean, and with this the nurse is satisfied; the daily ablution of the whole body, however, is still necessary, not only for the preservation of cleanliness, but because it promotes in a high degree the health of the child. A child of a vigorous constitution and robust health, as he rises from his bed refreshed and active by his night's repose, should be put into the shower-bath, or, if this excites and alarms him too much, must be sponged from head to foot with salt water. If the weather be very cold, the water may be made slightly tepid, but if his constitution will bear it, the water should be cold throughout the year. Then the body should be speedily dried, and hastily but well rubbed with a somewhat coarse towel, and the clothes put on without any unnecessary delay. This should be done every morning of the child's life. If such a child is at the sea-side, advantage should be taken of this circumstance, and seabathing should be substituted. The best time is two or three hours after breakfast; but he must not be fatigued beforehand, for if so, the cold bath cannot be used without danger. Care must be taken that he does not remain in too long, as the animal heat will be lowered below the proper degree, which would be most injurious. In boys of a feeble constitution, great mischief is often produced in this way. It is a matter also of great consequence in bathing children that they should not be terrified by the immersion, and every precaution should be taken to prevent this. The healthy and robust boy, too, should early be taught to swim, whenever this is practicable, for it is attended with the most beneficial effects; it is a most invigorating exercise, and the cold bath thus becomes doubly serviceable. If a child is of a delicate and strumous constitution, the cold bath during the summer is one of the best tonics that can be employed; and if living on the coast, sea-bathing will be found of singular benefit. The effects, however, of sea-bathing upon such a constitution must be particularly watched, for unless it is succeeded by a glow, a feeling of increased strength, and a keen appetite, it will do no good, and ought at once to be abandoned for the warm or tepid bath. The opinion that warm baths generally relax and weaken, is erroneous; for in this case, as in all cases when properly employed, they would give tone and vigour to the whole system; in fact, the tepid bath is to this child what the cold bath is to the more robust. In conclusion: if the bath in any shape cannot from circumstances be obtained, then cold saltwater sponging must be used daily, and all the year round, so long as the proper reaction or glow follows its use; but when this is not the case, and this will generally occur, if the child is delicate and the weather cold, tepid vinegar and water, or tepid salt water, must be substituted.

Have you been scouring through all those home-based business opportunities on the Internet looking for the perfect niche? Have you invested in a couple of them and realized that the home-based business you picked was not what it seemed at first? Have you watched dozens or even hundreds of multimedia presentations while visions of dollar signs danced in your head? If youve answered yes to any of the questions above, you may be facing some difficult decisions regarding starting a home-based business. Do not part with another cent of your hard-earned money until you thoroughly read this article about what some home-based business sellers do not want you to know.Every day millions of people dream about owning their own home-based business. Whats not to dream about? The opportunity to work the hours you desire and make an extraordinary sum of money is an intoxicating idea. In fact, it can be downright addictive. In response, thousands of new home-based business opportunities spring up every day that promise investors easy riches and the lifestyle that comes with ultimate success.Most new business opportunities are quick to tell you about all the great things about their particular business model. Flashy websites, well-crafted audio presentations, and difficult to ignore graphs and charts are all part of the equation. Lost in the throes of all the excitement is that many people that buy into these programs do not consider the downside. Lets take a look at some of the downsides that many of these businesses conveniently forget to mention.Most home-based business opportunities leave out the fact that you will have to SELLSELLSELL! You should ask yourself if you like selling? Most business opportunities require you to be an expert salesperson. Thats what business is all about. Contrary to what you may believe, selling is an art. The person who may have gotten you to join in the first place might actually be making a lot of money, but again they may be a great salesperson blessed with a golden tongue (they sold you didnt they?). So unless you really like to sell, you should be careful about the business you invest in. The art of selling is not something that everyone can do. It takes a type of dedication that has to be immune to rejection and the ability to persevere through difficult times. The fact is that most people hate selling so much that they never really succeed in their home-based business.Did you really think the product your home based business offers will just sell itself? Many of the home-based business opportunities bandied across the World Wide Web indicate that their products do in fact, sell themselves. This is a definite warning sign. Very few ideas sell themselves, and in the rare occasion that an idea is so extraordinary that it would sell itself, it usually takes an inordinate effort to get the word out. A huge mistake that most first time home-based business owners face is not having enough cash to invest in advertising.Advertising, of course, is the medium through which a product or service gathers name recognition. A basic rule in advertising 101 is that in order to be effective advertising must be consistent. It must also target a specific group of people that are likely to buy. You wouldnt target a sports product to those who detest sports, would you? Contrary to what many home-based business sellers might tell you, very few buying decisions are impulsive. This means that a potential customer might have to see an advertisement for your product or service dozens of times before they decide to make a purchase. So if you business plans is to just invest a few hundred dollars on advertising with the hopes of gaining thousands of dollars to reinvestthink again! In order to get sales rolling you need to make a bigger commitment than that. Think about the vast amounts of money that change hands for a thirty second Super Bowl commercial. If you dont think advertising works, then its already too hot in the kitchen!Most home-based business sellers promise you that once you sign up there is very little work involved. Its amazing that after all these years people still believe that you can get something for nothing. Can you imagine going into a job interview and expecting not to do any work? Do you think that you will be paid to just sit back on a white sand beach in some tropical paradise and drink margaritas all day while your bank account continues to grow and the good times continue to roll? If youve got that mindset, it would be wise to shed it in favor of a more logical approach. Of course, without proper advertising, you are not going to get very far. If you are spending your time trying to close unqualified leads then you are not going to have much time to lie on the beach and soak up the rays.One of the ways you can get around some of these important considerations is to look for a home-based business that automates the sales process. Without automation tire-kickers and time-wasters will rob you of your valuable time. If the sales process is automated, you may be onto something. Think about the time you will save if you dont have to track down each client and negotiate a deal. If you are on the edge of investing in a home-based business, be sure to ask if the business opportunity you are about to invest in has trained closers that work with you to close the coveted sale. Passive income is the golden word in which most home-based businesses sell the dream of ultimate prosperity. In our society people continuously dream about having the freedom to do whatever they want, whenever they want. Passive income is income that you basically do not have to do very much for in the present. That is, it has been established already. While passive income is generated in the present, it is a result of PAST efforts. The foundation was previously constructed by people who had to work diligently and productively in order to reach their goals. Think about someone who owns a rental property and makes a nice income every month from rent. That property did not simply materialize out of thin air. The owner did not rub a magic lamp three times and receive three wishes for his efforts. It looks like the property owner has done nothing for that income but the truth is that they had to do a lot of work and build their savings in the PAST in order to be able to have enough money to buy that rental property.Do not get sold on the idea that purchasing a home-based business will give you immediate passive income. This is a pipe dream that can cost you both time and money. Whatever endeavor you wish to pursue takes dogged determination, resiliency, and getting your hands dirty in order to succeed. You have to work and pay your dues before you can generate positive cash flow. This article is not trying to dissuade you from pursuing the dream of a home-based business not at all! In fact, there are hundreds of thousands of people who have succeeded in starting their home-based business. What is being suggested is the fact that wealth and prosperity do not come easy. If they did, then wouldnt everyone be working from home by now?Starting a home-based business is a plausible investment. However, it takes hard work at first, but if you stick with it and demonstrate the ability to work through difficult times, you will be rewarded in the end. This brings up the last success factor that most home-based businesses neglect to tell you. Their advertisements show you flashy cars, luxurious homes, pearly white beaches, and vast landscapes that are usually the playgrounds for millionaires. The truth is that pursuing a home-based business takes a serious commitment of time and effort. Very simply put, you get out what you put in. A business opportunity is just like a car. If you continue to pump fuel into it, make sure it is properly maintained, and get the oil changed every couple of months, it will perform at its peak for a long period of time. On the other hand, if you let it run dry youll be waiting for a tow truck on the highway to oblivion!The goal of attaining passive income is very possible if you pay your dues and do a little bit of hard work. Never forget that the time you put into your home based business is an investment. It is more than likely that your business will not take off the first day, week, or month after you start it. However, with persistence and a never-say-die attitude, you will probably experience success faster than others.
