Love of reading can predict your online success
By Rebecca Gilbert
When I was a very small child, I discovered that I had a love for reading. There was nothing better then spending an entire afternoon engrossed in a good novel. Reading for me was a pleasure, and magically transported me all over world. My love of reading from an early age sharpened my vocabulary skills, my spelling, and my ability to learn, without me even realizing it.
Up until time that I had decided to start a home based business on internet, I didn't feel that my love of reading played a role towards increasing my finances...how wrong I was.
When I started a home business on internet, I knew absolutely nothing about network marketing, advertising, building websites, search engine optimization, tax deductions, or millions of other things needed to run a successful business from your home. And affiliate program that I had signed up for provided me a mentor who was basically non-essential towards me being successful and moving up ranks.
Although program that I had signed up for provided all kinds of training material, I didn't find it to be in a logical step by step order and became very confused at where I was to begin and what my ultimate goal was to be.
Through much trial and error, I had given up on someone helping me and decided that if I was going to be successful, it was going to be up to me whether I succeeded or failed. At that point I returned to my roots and my love of reading. I started watching people who were successful online and started reading their articles on how they got there. I started visiting various online and webmaster forums also. You would be surprised how much free information is out there if you just take time to look for it and read. People who have made a fortune on internet are only too happy to share their experience and knowledge with you.

Realistic expectations when starting a home based business
- By Rebecca Gilbert
Working out of your home with an internet business can be most rewarding experience, both personally and financially, that a person can undertake. The internet has made more millionaires than any other vessel in history, and you don't have to any education or experience to obtain riches that internet has to offer. We all want to make more money, spend time with our family, and these are only a few of fringe benefits that owning an internet business can provide. However, individuals that have made their fortune on internet have certain characteristics about them that have allowed them to be successful. These riches were not obtained overnight, and they were not obtained without realistic expectations. Lets look at some of things that would prohibit you from being successful online... Are you currently unemployed? I see so many people sign up for internet programs these days that are not currently employed and expect that an internet business will provide for their families right off bat. Businesses on internet are not 9-5 jobs that pay by hour, they are "businesses", and most pay by commission. As with most businesses, there are things that have to be set in place before you are going to start attracting customers. This does not happen overnight, this is something that you will put in place over time. When this is done over time, your commissions will grow and grow to point that an internet business will replace your current income or career. Are you unwilling to invest your money? Many programs on internet offer free sign-ups, free products, and free websites to help an individual get started in a internet home business. This is fantastic, because in order to make money on internet, you have to have a product to sell, and your going to need a website to enable your customers with a place to go to purchase your products. However, visitors won't know that your website exist unless you advertise it. Many high traffic sites on internet will allow you to advertise your products on their site for a fee. Getting your website listing on search engines is free and will supply you with a never ending traffic stream. But many search engines are unwilling to list free affiliate websites. The way that we overcome this is to build our own sites and link them to our affiliate websites. Building your own website will cost you around $25. So as you can see, if you cannot initially invest at least $25 - $50 a month on your internet business, your probably not going to succeed. Are you unwilling to invest your time?
