I've recently begun working with individuals one-on-one who are truly interested in earning an income fromrepparttar internet inrepparttar 117357 comfort of their own home. A common complaint I hear from them is that they are constantly overwhelmed byrepparttar 117358 enormous amount of information that they are bombarded with each and every day.

This is understandable; everyone has faced it.

Those who have been successful online, however, have done so because of a simple process - narrowing their focus.

In any business, this is necessary. But online, it is critical for success.

There are a lot of people who are working from home, and not all of them are earning their income solely fromrepparttar 117359 internet. Some have businesses that are run completely offline, and many have both online and offline components.

For purposes of this article, however, I'd like to address those whose goal it is to work completely online, since that seems to be ideally what most people wish to do.

So what works best?

Many things, but I believe thatrepparttar 117360 vast majority of truly successful online businesses fall into one of three groups:

Network Marketing Information Products Affiliate Program Promotion

Some successful entrepreneurs have incoroporated two and sometimes all three into their businesses.

Why did I single these three out?

Simple. The great majority of home-based online entrepreneurs I've ever read about, heard of or communicated with has achieved their success through at least one of these three methods.

Let's break it down further -

Network Marketing - with all its bad press, network marketing is indeed a viable business model. The power ofrepparttar 117361 internet to disperse information quickly and efficiently is ideal for those who enjoy working with others one-on-one. But that is key, for network marketing is still a person to person business, any way you look at it. The internet simply makes it easier and more cost efficient.

The key to network marketing success is to choose wisely. Rather than joinrepparttar 117362 latest and greatest matrix program being touted asrepparttar 117363 fastest way to internet riches, look for a company whose products truly fill a need and who has been in business for at least five years. There are a lot of companies who have been in business for many years and who are now offering an internet presence for their distributors and customers.

Information Products - The internet is all about information. We all know that some individuals overrepparttar 117364 years have amassed small fortunes selling information to highly targeted groups. It is only natural that this type of business would move seamlessly torepparttar 117365 online world. Even more significant for those inrepparttar 117366 information business isrepparttar 117367 fact that they can operate online at significantly reduced operating costs, thereby increasing their profits.

So Where Do You Fit In? by Cathy Bryant Copyright 2003

Many of you reading this are working full-time, with a dream to eventually leave your job for complete independence from home. Some of you are also working at a home-based business; others are exploringrepparttar idea of one.

Others are working part-time outsiderepparttar 117356 home, and supplementing your income with a part-time home-based business.

Still others are unemployed outsiderepparttar 117357 home, either voluntarily or involuntarily. You may or may not currently be working on your own business.

I have so many people who write me to tell me that they'd really like to start a business of their own but they just don't haverepparttar 117358 money to do so. You can start your business from scratch - but it can be really frustrating to have to work so hard at something with no return because you're having to funnel allrepparttar 117359 money you've earned back intorepparttar 117360 business. Without any working capital at all, most people simply give up and think they can't make a go of it.

Well, have you ever thought about possibly getting a part-time job solely forrepparttar 117361 purpose of funding your business? I know what you're saying (especially if you already work full-time) -

"Then I'd never haverepparttar 117362 time to work atrepparttar 117363 business."

Well, that may very well be true - inrepparttar 117364 short term. But if home-business success is truly important to you, then perhaps you should consider this -

Get that part-time job. Take your earnings and invest them in some short-term investments (CD's, for example). Continue to work atrepparttar 117365 job - BUT DON'T SPEND THE MONEY - and grow your business nest egg. During this time, continue to research your home business options.
