I haverepparttar perfect job.

I don't work at all, at least according to my friends. When I do work, I work at home. I get paid every day. And I get paid more than just about anyone I know.

I write and sell e-books onrepparttar 116818 Internet. I'm writing this little article to inspire people that are looking forrepparttar 116819 same things I was looking for just a couple of years ago: financial independence, a work-at-home option, some prestige, and oh yeah, that little thing we need called a creative outlet.

When I go to parties and tell people that I write and sell e-books they almost always say "what's that"? But that's OK, that's just part of being an "e-book publisher".

My story started out in 1996, when I was a Microsoft Certified Trainer and Network Engineer, flying aroundrepparttar 116820 world in a "monkey suit". I dreamed of a way that I could sell some study guides to some ofrepparttar 116821 guys I was training and other people onrepparttar 116822 Internet, and so I wrote six documents in Microsoft Word that I began to sell at $24.95 each. I started a web site, and eventually I had a 140 links to it and a nice search engine ranking (a luxury today). I sold my study guides on my web site, even producing an income of up to $1,500 a month. I didn't know it but I was selling e-books.

At that time I didn't haverepparttar 116823 freewheeling "semi retired" lifestyle that I have now because e-books at that time took a little bit more work: I had to get a merchant credit card account. Trusting engineers would send me their credit card info inrepparttar 116824 e-mail and I would process each order by hand every night. If people wrote checks, I processed those too. I handled customer service and "order fulfillment" for my orders: I would e-mail each engineer their study guide and sometimes make printed out copies of them, sellingrepparttar 116825 printouts and processing those orders too.

No Commute

Many of us are lucky enough to live close to our place of employment, but that doesn't go to say that we don't have to set a stringent schedule that starts withrepparttar 116819 alarm clock going off, rushing torepparttar 116820 coffee pot, making breakfast for our families, rotating shower times, getting our children dressed and off to school, and on top of that makingrepparttar 116821 commute to our day jobs. Byrepparttar 116822 time most of us get to work, we feel as though we have already put in a hard days work.

Can you imagine owning an Online Home Business and putting all of this behind you? Imagine starting work each day when you are ready too, without having to rush. You may even want to skiprepparttar 116823 shower and work in your pajamas. This is what many of us do.

Family Time

I will never forget as long as I liverepparttar 116827 things that I missed out on with my family because I had to go to work. Many of us feel that we work to live, but our companies turn us in to people who live to work. This above all else wasrepparttar 116828 biggest reason that I started a home based business onrepparttar 116829 Internet. Sadly enough, I didn't discover online home businesses until my children were almost grown, but I plan on making some of this up to them by being able to help raise my grandchildren and providing a residual income to my children long after I am gone.
