The world of Internet marketing isnít all itís cracked up to be. In fact, it can be a brutally cold one. Believe me, I learnedrepparttar hard way.

I started trying to make money online when I was 14. Like today, there were a lot of scams out there, and being so young I was especially vulnerable. I wasted hundreds of dollars.

The weird thing was I was a pretty smart kid. I knewrepparttar 144150 value of a buck. But when I came online I didnít think that ďreal worldĒ rules applied.

All too often people come online and lose all sense of reality like I did. I see two types of people who fail online.
