Inspiration and Advice Your Home Business...Choose It Carefully And Then Really Work It! Maintain your focus and give yourself time to succeed.
I've had many active and enthusiastic business team members that were their own worst enemies because they exhibited the classic "flea o­n a griddle" behavior pattern and jumped around chasing o­ne business opportunity today, and then another o­ne tomorrow without ever putting in enough sustained and focused effort to reasonably give themselves a chance to succeed at any of them.

I can really relate to this situation since I briefly fell prey to this same "dog in a meat market" syndrome when I first started my own home based business a few years ago. I caught myself
trying to chase several different opportunities at o­nce and not being very successful with any of them.

There are so many home business opportunities (some real, some not) that it takes real personal discipline to avoid the scattergun know, throw enough against the wall
and something is bound to stick. In the early going, it is really important to resist this temptation and to stay tightly focused o­n a single business.

Some will argue that "I don't want to have all my eggs in o­ne basket". To those people I say, diversification is fine, but o­nly after you have achieved solid success with your initial
business. A premature attempt at diversification will quite likely cause a loss of focus and actually slow down your success rate.

If your main marketing vehicle is a website, you can fairly easily leverage your initial success and effectively promote a few other complimentary and closely related home based business
propositions from the same website.

However, it is important not to go overboard and offer too many choices to visitors to your website. If you do, there is a good chance of confusing your visitors to the point where they will
take no action and you have, in effect, diluted the effectiveness of your website.

Whatever you decide to do, you will need to stick with it for a  reasonable length of time (give it at least o­ne year) and put in a solid and sustained effort. Stay focused and don't get discouraged. As much as you would like it to be, starting and developing a real home based business is certainly not an instant gratification situation.

Totally agree with kirk's views. The dog in meat shop situation is very clear but unfotunately prospective starters have the doubt : is this o­ne better or more realisable than the other . So why not try a few and then make a final choice. Remember everybody is in need of success.No o­ne wants to wait for 1year because it is 365 days away !

There are alot of opportunities and it can get very tempting to want to join many of them.
Theres a saying I read once.
" To a man with a hammer everything looks like a nail" Carefull selection and focus are your best bets. There is no reason to diversify heavily. Because just like the stock market if you spread it to thin your returns will not be as great.

1) an email address
2) a PayPal account

STEP ..1 - Setting up your FREE PayPal Account It's extremely safe and very easy to set up a FREE PayPal account! Copy and paste this to the address bar:

STEP ..2 - Sending PayPal money "It is an undeniable law of the universe that we must first give in order to receive." Now all you have to do is send $1.00 by way of PayPal to each of the six email addresses listed below. Make sure the subject of the payment says... *PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR EMAIL LIST* (this keeps the program 100% legal so please don't forget!)
Remember, all of this is ABSOLUTELY LEGAL. You are creating a service! If you have any doubts, please refer to Title 18 Sec. 1302 & 1241 of the United States Postal laws.

STEP ..3 - Adding Your Email Address After you send your six $1.00 payments, it's your turn to add your email address to the list! Take the ..1) email off the list that you see above, move the other addresses up one (6 becomes 5 & 5 becomes 4, etc) then put YOUR email address (the one used in your PayPal account) as ..6) on the list. **MAKE SURE THE EMAIL YOU SUPPLY IS EXACTLY AS IT APPEARS IN YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT.**

STEP ..4 - You are now ready to post your copy of this message, to at least 200 newsgroups, message boards, etc. All you need is 200.


Step..1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own posting. Simply put your CURSOR at the beginning of this letter and drag your CURSOR to the bottom of this document, and select 'copy' from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into your computer's temporary memory.

Step ..2) Open a blank 'Notepad' file and place your cursor at the top of the blank page. From the 'Edit' menu select 'Paste'. This will paste a copy of the letter into notepad so that you can add your email to the list.

Step ..3) Save your new Notepad file as a .txt file. If you want to do your postings in different sittings, you'll always have this file to go back to.

Step ..4) Use Netscape or Internet Explorer and try searching for various newsgroups, on-line forums, message boards, bulletin boards, chat sites, discussions, discussion groups, online communities, etc. EXAMPLE: go to any search engine like,,, - then search with subjects like ?millionaire message board? or ?money making message board? or ?opportunity message board? or ?money making discussions? or ?business bulletin board? or ?money making forum? etc. You will find thousands & thousands of message boards. Click them one by one then you will find the option to post a new message.

Step ..5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a new message by highlighting the text of this letter and selecting 'Paste' from the 'Edit' menu. Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that everyone sees as they scroll thru the list of postings in a particular group, click the post message button. You're done with your first one! Congratulations! THAT'S IT!!
