Written by Mary Holzrichter

If you're like me, perhaps you've been onrepparttar internet for less than a year. For those first few months, you pretty much just surf around absolutely dumbfounded by allrepparttar 119085 information available in cyberspace. Wow! After a while, you actually feel yourself becoming addicted, and you can feel yourself being transformed into (Oh, no!) a "Mouse Potato".

Since you love this internet thing so much, you decide you may as well earn some money while maneuvering that mouse. What a great idea! My own home business!

You join as many freelance "work at home" job sites as possible, sending out your resume to all of them, and hoping that you'll land that perfect administrative-type job. Well, it appears that those jobs are few and far between. For every job opening, there are literally thousands of applicants. Unless you're a transcriptionist, have website design or techie skills of some sort, they are next to impossible to land.

And I ended up spending most of my time reading them. Sure, I learned a lot, but I don't even have a website yet!

Uh-Oh! Now look what has happened! You've got mountains of printed out information on every imaginable subject, your bookmarks are overloaded, your email folders are bulging, AND you find you're not using any of it because you've got SO much, you've forgotten about any of it specifically. I won't even mention all those "had-to-have" eBooks. The heaps of paper are piled so high that it has become an insurmountable task to go through them, andrepparttar 119096 bookmarks have strange titles which don't ring a bell, some ofrepparttar 119097 emailed newsletters are still setting where you put them to read more in-depth later, and you get torepparttar 119098 point where you wonder,
