Multi Level  Marketing - The Truth There is no secret to making money with work at home business except Hard Work and Persistence. Have the right expectations and you will not be disappointed. Quick, Easy Money... And Horse Feathers

Enter the horse feathers.

Does it ever end? I've been involved with Internet-based home businesses for some time and I continue to be exposed to a seemingly endless barrage of offers (all costing me money, of course) claiming to be "the secret" for making a fantastic income, in a very short time, and with very little effort involved.

I must admit that I may have a slightly self-serving reason for addressing this topic. My articles are published o­n my home-based business websites for the purpose of trying to give prospective team members a true sense of what is really involved with starting and developing a successful home based business.

The self-serving part, I suppose, is that I want people joining my team to have the straight scoop going in so that we don't waste each other's time. I admit to being selfish in this regard (I don't want to waste time working with people that have unrealistic expectations), but it is also very efficient for both parties involved, so it is not a totally o­ne-way thing.

Now, back to the topic at hand. There's no magic here, folks. o­nce you have selected the home business that you are going to pursue, there are no substitutes for time and effort in developing your business. A dream of being an "overnight success" is just that, a dream.

I can tell you from personal experience, that o­nce you "pay your dues" and begin to have real success with a home based business, it is really terrific. Think about Nirvana or Valhalla, take
your pick, but in any event it's really sweet.

When I started developing a home based business, making a good income was obviously an objective, but I also had other sub-objectives. o­ne of the most important things was to have
nearly total time flexibility (I mean, if I was willing to continue to wear the 9-5 Mon-Fri collar I could just have just stayed in the previously "traditional" work force).

Time flexibility was (and still is) a "biggie" for me. Many people working at home have the same need for various reasons.
For work at home moms, a home business can be a real godsend to accommodate the hectic time pressures, particularly when the kids are quite young and mom is also spelled "transportation".

In my own particular case, the reason is not quite so noble... I  just want (need?) to be able to pick up my fly rod and go fishing at a moments notice (sometimes I'll be gone for a week or two at a time, but now the business has enough momentum that it keeps o­n operating just as well as if I were here tending to it o­n a daily basis).

Bear in mind, I am o­nly able do the breakaway thing now that I have put in all the up-front time and effort and now have developed enough kinetic energy in my home-based Internet business to be able to enjoy the fruits of my labor.

MAKE £5,000 WITH JUST £3 AND 6 STAMPS!! YES.... IT REALLY WORKS AND IS TOTALLY: LEGAL! READ ON... YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!! : MAKE QUICK AND EASY MONEY - THIS ACTUALLY WORKS! : I READ THIS ARTICLE ON A MESSAGE BOARD AND THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE IT A GO AND WHILST I DIDN’T MAKE MY MILLIONS, I DID MAKE £4000 AND I AM STILL GETTING MONEY IN THE POST. THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE IS BELOW -: Make £500 - £5,000 or more, with just £3 and 6 stamps. Earn money honest and fairly. HOW TO TURN £3 INTO £5,000!!! OR MORE!!! IT REALLY WORKS. : I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little while back, I was browsing message boards, just like you are now, and came across an article similar to this that said you could make thousands of pounds within weeks with only an initial investment of £3!! : So I thought, Yeah right, this must be a scam, but like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said that you have to send 50p to each of the 6 names and addresses stated in the article. You then place your own name and address in the bottom of the list at No6, and post the article in as many newsgroups and message boards as you can. (There are thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking it over, and talking to few people first, I thought about: trying it. I figured what have I got to lose except 6 stamps and 3 quid right?” Then I invested the measly £3. : Well guess what? : Within 7 days, I started getting money in the post! I was shocked! I figured it would end soon; but the money just kept coming in. In my first week, I made about £30. By the end of the second week I had made a total of over £900. In the third week I had over £3,000 and was still growing. : This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of just over £15,000 and it's still coming in rapidly. It's certainly worth £3 and 6 stamps! : Let me tell you how this works and most importantly, why it works. It's really simple and easy. : I promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you will start making more money than you thought possible by doing something so easy! : Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully. (Print it out or copy and paste it into notepad or a blank email or similar) Follow the simple directions and watch the money come in! : IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not illegal; and it is no risk - AND it really works. If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive extraordinary dividends. : PLEASE NOTE: Please follow these directions Exactly, and £10,000 or more can be yours in 20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue its success by carefully adhering to the instructions. : *Here Are The 4 Easy Steps To Success - TRY IT.............GO ON, WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE EXCEPT £3. : STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on each piece of paper: PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST and then write your name and address below that. : Now get 6 UK 50p coins and tape ONE to EACH of the 6 pieces of paper and fold the piece of paper in half so the coin will not break through the envelope. Next, place one of the pieces of paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal them. (make sure you put a stamp on each envelope - a 2nd class stamp will be fine if you want to keep your costs even lower) : You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of paper inside saying PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST, your name and address, and a 50p coin. What you are doing is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL! You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for it. (very little!) Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried about the legal aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the UK Post Office and they confirmed that it is indeed legal. If you have any worries, refer to Title18 Sec. 1302 & 1341 of the Postal lottery laws. It is fantastically - completely legal! : Now
