Yep, that's where I wrote this article - sitting onrepparttar back porch.

Well, that's probably inaccurate; actually,repparttar 117361 idea for this article came to me while I was sitting onrepparttar 117362 back porch. I was enjoying my after-lunch coffee along with an unseasonably warm (but delightful) October afternoon, when it occurred to me that I was indulging myself in one ofrepparttar 117363 true luxuries ofrepparttar 117364 work-from-home lifestyle.

I began to flash back as to what it was like workingrepparttar 117365 more traditional 9-to-5 job, and once again I realized how blessed I was to be able to work from home on MY schedule, not someone else's!

There's no denying it - I'mrepparttar 117366 toughest boss I've ever had - but evenrepparttar 117367 most compassionate employers have no way of knowing, let alone accommodating, those times when you just simply have to say "STOP!"

You know what I'm talking about - you've been hard at work on your job for weeks, giving your all to your employer, and all at once your mind and body says to you, "I've got to get out of here!" We've all been there, right? You just want a break, a chance to be by yourself and sort through allrepparttar 117368 things that are weighing on your mind. Perhaps you'll just sneak outside for a few minutes, take a walk, grab a cup of java... you know it will make you more productive.

...the Jones's? The Smiths? The latest internet "sure-fire, 100% guaranteed, knock-down last, best opportunity?"

Makes you want to pull your hair out, doesn't it?

I'm here to tell you...don't get caught in that trap.

I have yet to learn about anyone who has made any significant long-term income from any of these programs. Perhaps there have been a few alongrepparttar way, but to be successful onrepparttar 117360 internet requires more, much more than simply joining every new highly-touted program that comes along.

It's sad, butrepparttar 117361 reality is that there are a large number of people who are burned byrepparttar 117362 hype and get scared away, believing that it is truly impossible to succeed online.

Nothing could be further fromrepparttar 117363 truth.

Many people just give up and fail to pursue their dreams, but others simply stand up, brush themselves off, and proceed to do what needs to be done in order to be successful.

Look around - there are many examples of ordinary people doing an extraordinary business online. Some of them have advanced degrees; others no more than a high-school education.
