What's a realistic time limit to develop your business into one that is making a profit? 1 year. If you don't have a year to give to it, you better get a backup plan to sustain you until it does make a profit. It takes time to build your business. You will make sales before that time, but I'm talking aboutrepparttar time it takes to get your business paying for itself and actually giving you some sort of a salary. Have there been people who did it in less time? Of course, but there have been more who did it in a much longer time.

Which ones do you always hear about? The ones who made it in 1 month. Now, they may or may not have "made it" in that time, but if they did, they were very lucky.

Absolutely not! The odds are definitely against it happening that way, butrepparttar 117855 odds are definitely in your favor that you will make it if you use some common sense and work hard. The opportunity is there for you - just be realistic aboutrepparttar 117856 time it takes to make a real profit in business.

You are halfway done withrepparttar 117863 hockey game and haven't even turned on your computer.

You also have 100,000 People talking about you at this very minute.

Are you excited yet?

Your fame and fortune encryption system continues on...

Remember those 10,000 people who paid $3.95 forrepparttar 117864 special report after reading your e-book for free?

One person out of that group, Sylvia Wiss isrepparttar 117865 only dishonest person out ofrepparttar 117866 10,000 . She purchasedrepparttar 117867 special report for $3.95 and decides to send your $3.95 special report to one million of her friends.

Sylvia Wiss brought you $99,503.95 in a time frame of one hour Your total sales forrepparttar 117875 day: $139,013.90 The total time that expired during this process is just two hours

I wonder how much money you will have earned inrepparttar 117876 next 40 hours?

There is one more question I will leave with you to think over. At what point do you contact an attorney and ask about copyright violations by Jack and Sylvia?

While you are thinking that over, I am going to see if there is anything else I can watch on television.

My E-book Fame and Fortune Encryption System is still operating.

Good luck on yours!
