When someone decides they want to start an online business, they might think all they have to do is slap up a site and wait forrepparttar money to come rolling in. If only it were that easy....but it isn't. There is a LOT of work and a LOT of learning to do when you are building an online business.

With this article, I would like to share some ofrepparttar 117879 things that I have learned in building my business.

DO NOT believerepparttar 117880 get rich quick ads. There are many scams out there hoping to find people who are looking for easy money and succumb to their promises. Some good indications of these would be.... MAKE A MILLION DOLLARS IN 6 MONTHS WITHOUT HAVING TO DO ANYTHING...yea, right!!

TREAT people with respect! I believe strongly that we should all treat others with respect and help each other as often as we can. Do not insult, embarrass or harass people if they do not agree with your views or if they do not know everything you think they should know.

EXPECT to work hard. Building an online business is something just about anyone can do, but you must be prepared to work and work hard at it. There are umpteen other businesses onrepparttar 117881 web and you must somehow make yours rise aboverepparttar 117882 others. This is no easy task.

Send information only to people who have signed up at your site, subscribed to your ezine or have asked for information. When you post to discussion lists, message boards and newsgroups, follow all rules and guidelines. http://www.mindworkshop.com/alchemy/nospam.html

Are You Up Soaring With The Eagles? Or ... Not?

Written by Ron Knowlton

The eagle is a majestic bird. Soaring and swooping down on its prey with great accuracy. With strong talons and "eagle eyes" - it gets what it wants and then swooshes back up intorepparttar air.

This is a bird that has come to symbolize success, accuracy, and perseverance.

All qualities, byrepparttar 117877 way, needed to succeed online.

Are you soaring with eagles ... or not?

Think about it.

Why do some businesses soar aboverepparttar 117878 rest - making big profits online?

And others do not?

Tonight I attended an Eagle Scout Court of Honor. Eagle isrepparttar 117881 highest rank a boy can achieve as a boy scout.

Statistically, I was told, only 1 in 100 boys ever earns this rank.

Yet those who do, find themselves in a class of great distinction!

So many boys start downrepparttar 117882 road believing that they will become "Eagle Scouts" - et only a few ever do.


Chad,repparttar 117883 boy honored tonight, almost didn't make it.

He came within two or three merit badges, then stopped.

As many do.

That's when his parents stepped in - strongly encouraging him to get back on track.
