Continued from page 1

You may wish you could start a home-based business tomorrow. You can start it tomorrow but honestly it could take six months to a year until you open for business or find a job. I wish I could offer you some kind of timeline to success but it just isn't possible. I know we all see a lot of advertisements that offer overnight success or thousands of dollars per hour earned. Actually that's not practical butrepparttar honest truth is that most home based businesses take 1 to 3 years of hard work before you may even see these types of returns.

Home-based businesses onrepparttar 137021 net have produced millionaires. Countless people started with limited resources and now earn unlimited wealth. What did they do? They recognized an opportunity and took action atrepparttar 137022 right time. They had eyes forrepparttar 137023 opportunity and ability for taking an action. That is what makes them stand apart. They were able.

Withrepparttar 137028 internet expanding at such a fast pace,repparttar 137029 potential for starting a home based business is much more than ever before. But only those seek with conviction and vision will find one. Moreover, only those who are courageous enough to take action will find their way to enormous wealth.

I was lucky enough to find The Tank at a tag sale in San Francisco many years ago. The seller only wanted one buck for this beautiful piece of equipment. Can you believe it? An original IBM keyboard for $1.00. Score!

Hopefully The Tank will live forever so I don’t have to resort to using modern day keyboards!

No More Sliding atrepparttar PO

stamps.com is a fantastic tool and an incredible use ofrepparttar 137020 Web. I login to my account, purchase and print postage for standard letters, postcards and special delivery packages.

The best part of using stamps.com is I no longer have to wait in line at my local Bronx post office, where my average wait time was nearly one hour. That’s a lost hour in my book – time which could be better spent working with my clients or snuffing outrepparttar 137021 competition.

Cool Timer (http://www.harmonyhollow.net/)

This little gem of a desktop timer is one of my fave freebies. I setrepparttar 137022 timer atrepparttar 137023 start of scheduled interviews, always settingrepparttar 137024 timer for 30 minutes. Cool Timer then bellows when time’s up. It’s free, it’s small and incredibly useful.

Justrepparttar 137025 Fax, Ma'am (All right ... I know it's an old joke!)

eFax gives me freedom – freedom from having yet another piece of equipment on my desk! In addition,repparttar 137026 company’s monthly pricing is on par with what I would pay for a separate telephone line. You must scan hard copies of documents before faxing, but I do very little of that type of faxing, anyway. My outgoing faxes are either Word, PowerPoint or Excel documents.

TechSmith’s (http://www.techsmith.com/) SnagIt is a fab-u-lous screen capture utility. SnagIt allows me to capture a wide variety of things, include text, images and web pages. The program is super easy to setup and use, as well.

I hope I’ll never be stranded on a deserted island – truth is, I’m afraid of deep water! Inrepparttar 137029 unlikely event I’d ever have to run my business from an island, I’ll need to ensure I’ve got my top 10 tools handy and ready to go!
