Leo Quinn's 'Own Your Own PayCheck Again' is a terrific resource for those who are serious about debt relief. He prescribes uncommon methods that I know from first-hand experience really work.
His book is a bit pricey, but it's a far better investment than buying an information manual that instructs you to go out and spend even more to build your business, when you don't have it to spend. Why not learn some techniques on how to pay off your debt quicker and keep a little more in your pocket?

Own Your Own PayCheck Again
If you can afford to pay bills but not much else, focus your energy on saving and earning amount you'll need to build your business without worry. Invest small amounts on things that will bring real returns in short term.
For example, scour your basement and your friends' basements for things to sell on eBay. The insertion fee for items listed at less than a buck is 25 cents US. If item sells for under 25 bucks, you'll pay a 5.25% 'final value fee' to eBay. Do that enough times and pretty soon you'll have five hundred or a thousand bucks to invest in your business... but only if you SAVE what you make.
Vist eBay now to see what's hot and selling.
Even if you have wads of cash, be realistic and informed about how you spend your money.
I've talked to far too many folks who invest in expensive coaching programs, believing that somehow their business will magically appear once they've completed course.
In reality, whether you buy a $27.00 dollar, or a $5,000 Internet business coaching program, in most cases you're buying information on how to build a business, not a service that will do work for you.
If that's what you want, then you may want to consider buying an existing business. However, it may be hard to find someone who has invested time, effort and money to build a profitable online business, who is willing to sell. Basically, at that stage, business should generate revenue automatically without a whole lot of input from creator... so they'd be a little daft to sell, don't you think?
Do your due diligence. Read fine print, ask questions and understand exactly what you're getting. And with regard to those coaching programs.... get a written contract, and search forums for at least five people who have taken program and were really happy with it... i.e. aren't just saying good things because they're trying to sell you program through their link.
If you choose to go information manual route, plan to follow ALL instructions, or fail otherwise.
For everyone who ever told me "I bought this, that or other book (or DVD, course, program, coaching package) and it didn't work", it was easy to prove that it wasn't book that didn't work - it was THEY that didn't work.
We can't expect to be successful with ugly websites, little or poor content, not building a list or not building a relationship with our visitors and subscribers.
The truth of matter is that there are no shortcuts.
Each and every step is essential, and every successful netpreneur has paid his or her dues to get to where they are today. They did their homework, made mistakes, and learned lessons - always believing in their ability to succeed.
Starting an internet business is still easier, faster and less expensive (by far) than starting an offline business. If you want to do it bad enough, you WILL find a way to make it work.
