First of all, think about what you would like to do. For example, if you like scuba diving, do you think itís possible for you to work from home teaching scuba diving or selling scuba diving gear? If you like to read, do you think itís plausible for you to sell books online? If you type really fast, you think you can sell your secretarial or typing services to others?
Put yourself into your potential clientsí shoes Ė do you think you will pay for your own kind of services? Remember, youíre good at what you do so, you have to imagine that youíre NOT good at what you do. For example, if you are good at typing, you have to imagine those two-finger-peck-by-peck typers who ARE willing to spend some money to get someone to type out long documents for them. If you are willing to pay for such services, how much do you think you would pay for it?
And then, next thing you should do is to go to www.google.com or www.yahoo.com (or whatever favorite search engine it is of yours) and type in a relevant keyword. Research out our competitors. If I had to be really honest with you, Iíd say send them emails and pretend to be a potential customer/client. Get a quote from them Ė not one but maybe, like, TEN of them.
If this is kind of money others are making from their own businesses, then you SHOULD be earning that kind of money as well.
I donít have a lot of space to go into details today but I will divulge more information later on, so, do come back for Part II!!
