Getting my Internet Business Started

Written by Brenda Pagel

I have a little experience inrepparttar business world, but not much. I was a Mortgage Broker for about a year. That’s about it. Before that, I was a delivery driver for five years.

I was going from job to job trying to findrepparttar 117205 “right” one. Busting my butt for corporate companies who really only cared about numbers. How much I can make or do for them. I was just another number in their system.

That’s when I started working onrepparttar 117206 Internet. I had been thinking about it for quite a while. I was very skeptical. The way I see it though, it’s no different than working for a large company as a Mortgage Broker, except I’mrepparttar 117207 boss!

I started my business online a little over a year ago. I stopped for a while, because of unforeseen circumstances. Then I got back into it.

I am involved in several affiliate programs.

•Six Figure Income

•Push Button Publishing


•The Internet Marketing Center

•Sure Fire Marketing

Past failure and disappointments have motivated me. Listening torepparttar 117208 successful entrepreneurs helps to motivate me, also. I know it can be done. It takes willpower, faith and a little elbow grease.

I have an office set up acrossrepparttar 117209 hall from my bedroom. I use a Pentium 4, 256 MB Gateway computer with a printer and scanner. I recently switched from dial-up Internet connection to cable modem. That makes a huge difference. I will never go back to dial-up!

I do most of my business online. I have done some mailing. The Internet is so much quicker and easier. I do prefer usingrepparttar 117210 Internet for most of my business.

The one thing I don’t like aboutrepparttar 117211 Internet isrepparttar 117212 fact that I don’t get to deal with people face-to-face. But that’s why I do a small part-time job away from home. And that job is only 5 minutes from home. I don’t like long commutes. Who does?

I do mostly publishing onrepparttar 117213 Internet. Promoting my business and affiliate sites. And when doing this, I learn some really neat stuff about other people.
