Q) What are your day to day responsibilities?

A) Emails! I answer support emails and post in my support forum. I wish more members would userepparttar forum, but I guess it's much easier to email Nick :)

Q) What aspects of running your own business do you enjoyrepparttar 117215 most?

A) When I receive PayPal payment Notifications . We must admit that's a good feeling, but to be perfectly honest what I really enjoy is when I get 'thank you' emails from my members.

That's when I really feel like I'm making a difference and helping others. Of courserepparttar 117216 money is great, but there is nothing like 'thank you' emails :)

Q) And which do you enjoyrepparttar 117217 least?

A) Hmm, that's a good question. I really love running my own business, but there are always some emails that I just don't get answered immediately. The days when I open my inbox and see a lot of unanswered emails, that's probably what I enjoyrepparttar 117218 least.

Q) Why do you favour using traffic exchanges as one ofrepparttar 117219 main Life Style Networker promotional techniques?

A) Because they work! Simple as that :) There is no one inrepparttar 117220 whole world that can show me a better way to generate free traffic to a webpage - period!

Surf4Hits programs really work if you know how to work them and what's even better you get results immediately. Surf 100 sites and you will see your hit counter going up almost immediately.

Q) Where do you see Life Style Networker 5 years from now?

A) The whole idea of LifeStyleNetworker is showing ordinary people how to get started with building their lists of contacts for free. In 5 years time that's exactly what LSN will be doing.

I will keep my eyes and ears open for any new free traffic generators that come along and will incorporate them into LSN. I will never put a price tag on LSN and it will always be free to use for members.

Q) How do you handle stress? What do you do to unwind?

Hehe ... stress what's that? I love to play golf and have been playing for 8 years now. That's really my passion and my goal in life is to be able to play anywhere inrepparttar 117221 world I like.

When I feel like unwinding I go torepparttar 117222 golf course or driving range and hit a load of balls :)

Q) What advice would you give to someone reading this who'd like to start their own online business program?

A) I would say that if they feel strongly enough about it then just do it and see it as a vehicle for developing their skills. Don't expect to be a pro or even act as one. Be professional but be personal.

I see too many program owners being all administrative and hiding behind admin emails. Don't be afraid to show that you are a real person - after all that's who we like working withrepparttar 117223 best.

Oh and a shameless plug here atrepparttar 117224 end, they might want to take a look at http://www.LimitedEditionPro.com for a cool software to help them ;)

Q) What personal qualities do you feel an internet marketer needs in order to succeed?

A) Three words: Persistence - Patience - Dedication!

That's what it takes to conquerrepparttar 117225 world. Any of us who have these three qualities will see success no matter how we pursue it.
