How to find a home based business

If you're serious about finding an online business and you've been looking, then you probably already know that this is a tedious process, because there are so many offers out there promising to fill your pockets. One can easily get sucked into a scam so here are a few pointers to help avoid this trap.

1 No Contact Information or Limited Contact Information. Most scam artists don't want you to be able to locate them easily. After all, if you could find them easily, so couldrepparttar authorities. That's why they often only give an email address (usually from a free provider like Yahoo or Hotmail) and/or a post office box. Onrepparttar 117250 other hand, reputable companies DO want you to be able to contact them quickly and easily. They'll offer several ways... telephone, physical address, email, fax, etc.

2 No Verifiable References or Testimonials. Do they list Web site addresses or email addresses forrepparttar 117251 people who supposedly gaverepparttar 117252 testimonials? Is there a way to contactrepparttar 117253 satisfied customers? If not... if you only see a reference ending with "John D. - California" - beware.

3 Make Thousands With No Work On Your Part. This isrepparttar 117254 biggest lie onrepparttar 117255 Internet today. Everyone lovesrepparttar 117256 idea of making thousands of dollars while they sleep. Is it possible? Yes! That part isn't a lie. The statement that it will take no work on your part isrepparttar 117257 lie.

4 Rushing You To Make A Decision. I'm talking aboutrepparttar 117258 business opportunity companies that - instead of answering your questions - pressure you to go ahead and buy in.The bottom line is this: Any company offering legitimate business opportunities will want to talk with you, will want to give you allrepparttar 117259 information you need, will not give a false appearance of credibility, and will have verifiable references that you can contact. Beware of anyone who does not offer these things.

What an Episode of the Original Star Trek Taught Me

Written by Kori Puckett

Have you ever seenrepparttar Star Trek episode "The City onrepparttar 117249 Edge of Forever"? If you haven't:

Commander McCoy accidentally makes himself delirious, beams down to a nearby planet, goes through a portal back in time torepparttar 117250 1930s, and changes history by saving a woman. This causesrepparttar 117251 Starship Enterprise to cease existing.

So Captain Kirk and others who followed McCoy torepparttar 117252 planet are stranded and have to go throughrepparttar 117253 portal to save McCoy, stop him from changing history, and bring backrepparttar 117254 Starship Enterprise and their buddies left on board.

They arrive a few days before McCoy and while there Kirk falls in love with a social worker, Edith Keeler. But Spock discovers that in order to repair history she will have to be killed in an auto accident.

Furthermore, if she lives, she will lead a pacifist movement that makesrepparttar 117255 President ofrepparttar 117256 U.S. delay entering WWII. This will allowrepparttar 117257 Nazis time to berepparttar 117258 first to makerepparttar 117259 atomic bomb and take control ofrepparttar 117260 world.

So Kirk has to make a decision: let McCoy save Edith and changerepparttar 117261 course of history forever or stop McCoy and saverepparttar 117262 world from dictatorship.

Do you ever wonder if history would have turned outrepparttar 117263 same way if even one thing had been changed? If one person had lived or died? If one event had or had not taken place?

History is really mysterious in that way, because you never know if one minor incident inrepparttar 117264 whole thousands of years of history could have had huge effects we never even thought of.

I've realized thatrepparttar 117265 Internet isrepparttar 117266 same way. It has allowed us to do business and live life like we never have before.
