One of my favorite sayings is 'youth is wasted on young'. I think Shakespeare said it first but I heard it a lot from my Mom. Now that I am older, I can see what she meant. Life is funny like that.
During my teens and early twenties, back in non-electronic days of sixties, we were focused on good looks. We spent bookoo dollars on make up and hair and spent hours 'working' on our tan. We weren't into physical part of looking good and fit. We focused on staying relaxed, looking tan and wealthy. We of Pepsi Generation were all about how you look not how you feel.
Anyway, I can now see meaning of saying 'youth is wasted on young'. All time and 'energy' I spent 'working' on my tan would have been better used for something lucrative or productive. My youth did not comprehend that concept and quite frankly, it was not in my level of need. However, like most every thing in life, it can be turned into a good learning experience.
As an adult, working at home and establishing my place on net as an entrepreneur takes a lot of time. I work 40 hours a week at my day job (no comments from peanut gallery about not quitting my day job, smile). Those 40 hours are nothing compared to time and energy spent working for myself. The net is a vast array of information with numerous highways pointing in various directions. In an effort to find out where you are going without a map, you can spend hours going in all different directions; and often we do.

Creating and publishing an electronic newsletter has been an experience. I still do not think I have it down pat, yet, but I do believe I am making progress. There have been so many scares within last year about sp'am, filters, and pay to send. It is enough to make anyone with half a brain QUIT. Well, I haven't quit, so I either have more than half a brain, or less. Please, no comments from peanut gallery! :~)
Seriously, publishing a 'zine has it's rewards. I have found that it has afforded me opportunity to establish an online connection with some great people who would have otherwise remained anonymous to me. There are obviously some very sincere and giving people who are using their computer to establish themselves in a business at home. I am glad to be counted in that number.
Working at home is ideal situation for many today. Establishing an office steps away from kitchen, laundry and kids is so convenient. Taking into consideration overhead felt by commuters, and brick and mortar establishments, we realize that home biz is smart. The added tax advantage, call it a shelter, is so beneficial when you consider cost of housing is your biggest expense.
So that is why I publish a 'zine! For all net 'marketeers' who seek an affordable media to promote their online opps. We are all in this together and unless YOU are listed in top ten on search engines, you need to market your wares or biz opps. Electronic newsletters allow you to do this at minimal cost, which by way is tax deductible.
