Starting Your Own Online Business in Internet Marketing

There are many different ways you can go about creating your online Internet marketing business.

The best place to start is by checking out the competition. This is an important step because you need to know what the competitions are doing when it comes to devising your marketing strategy. By checking out what they are doing, it can help you devise a strategy to make you stand out from the crowd.

Next decide on your goal. You will need to know the end result you require from any marketing campaign. Often, people seem to forget about this when they start out to market a product. What are the results you want to get from the campaign?

Do you want to increase traffic to your website? Do you want to sell more products? Do you want your name to become synonymous with a particular product?…

The Path to Leadership Is Complicated

images-51When you, like I did, need to struggle to get your GED to get ahead in life, you’ll understand that the road to a leadership position is quite challenging. I had no choice but drop out of the High School when I was 16 year old back then, and it took me quite a while to earn my GED diploma.

I’m very proud of being a GED recipient but it wasn’t easy. I failed first, going back to school was a disaster and I’m thankful for being able to follow GED programs offered on the internet. If I lived 20 years ago I wouldn’t have been able to pursue my dream.

My secret source of motivation was a website that pointed out that many famous and successful people are also GED graduates. It took me 5 month to get ready for the GED exam.…

I Saved All My Pennies For The Well

brainwave-entrainmentWell, what do you think? My first made from SCRATCH theme. Whoo-hoo. I think it turned out rather well. The drop shadow didn’t turn out as good as I had hoped but it’ll do for now.

I had the worst weekend. I went home because my dog was really sick (not eating or sleeping, breathing really hard, and bleeding internally) so we put her to sleep on Saturday. I’ve been a basket case since. This was the hardest animal to lose. God, I miss her so much. Anyway, to avoid a completely morbid post, I’ll move on but before I do.

Other than THAT, I graduate in less than three weeks. I’m SO excited. I’ll get out of this 12×12 room or whatever it is and have a real life, as long as I get into law school. I still haven’t heard yet.…

How important is art for you? What matters more?

fp-ged-test-quoteFrom the barista who serves your coffee, to forward-thinking teachers, we all have creativity within us. We can be creative, if we want to.

Art can be in  everything we do. I imagine if you’re passionate about it, you might think it’s pretty important.

You might think about it a lot.  You might get frustrated if you can’t seem to finish a project or bring one of your ideas to life, says Emily who develops tests for the U.S. and Canadian High School Equivalency (HSE) tests.

She says: sometimes, at the end of the day, I look around me and see that I didn’t accomplish much at all, and my professional goal is to create at least one new test for a website named MyCareerTools that helps students to get ready for the HSE test. Sometimes other things take over and  whatever I didn’t create for the day doesn’t matter anymore.…

How to fish for clients

social-networking-jannoon028-freedigitalIn this article I examine how to become a fisherman rather than a hunter in networking. Work from home careers operate best when fishing.

There are two basic styles to trying to get leads when you have a network marketing or direct sales business opportunity as your work from home career. These two styles are; ‘hunter’ or ‘fisher’. First we define a ‘lead’ as someone who is showing a definite interest in your business opportunity.

‘Hunting’ – this is where someone aggressively seeks leads. They are always on the lookout and will chase down anyone relentlessly to get them to say ‘yes’.

‘Fishing’ – this is where someone sets out to ‘lure’ or attract someone who is already interested in your type of business to join you.

Hunting is a poor way to earn extra money.…

How to avoid distraction when working at home

THE SECRET TO THE DISAPPEARING DOORS PROBLEM

The disappearing doors problem is when you think opportunities you never knew existed will disappear. This post gives some advice on how to manage your opportunities.

A WORK AT HOME INTERNET JOB AND THE DISAPPEARING DOORS SITUATION

Home Internet businesses come in many types. This can create a problem which was identified by the French philosopher Eric Frohm in 1941. He wrote a book called Escape From Freedom, which I thought seemed a strange title. Why would anyone want to escape from freedom?

However as I have gained experience I can see what Frohm saw all those years ago. The situation we have arrived at in our modern day societies is one of too many opportunities as opposed to too few. We are constantly told of the things we can and should do before we die:

  • 100 places to visit before we die
  • 100 historical sites to visit
  • The next must see film
  • The next must visit restaurant

I am saying these choices are neither inherently good nor bad.

Going Back to School. I am So Excited

inspirationLearning new things is a constant in my life that I don’t believe will ever change. However, I would love to stop attending classes sooner than later.

Yes, I went to high school but in another country and my diploma is not good enough in the US. I am at a pivotal point in my life.

I’m at the bottom of the hiring list in most industries, and I’m bored out of my mind. What I need is a GED so now I’m taking free online GED classes, that will help me get into college.

I have been looking for work for more than two years with nothing solid to report. Sitting idly is not something I can do very well.  I want to take advantage of my time now.…

Disrupted Worlds

It is just so exciting to read what people think about Disrupted Worlds and I appreciate so much the effort that reviewers make, so thank you to Yacouba T for making my day with a review on amazon.com under the heading “Great sampling of indie authors” quoted below in warts and all style:

“Independent authors and publishers need more offerings like Disrupted Worlds. All too often, independent works get rushed to market without thorough editing or a professional look.

This collection provides a good sampling of what indie authors and publishers are capable of when they respect the readers enough to work on their craft and present a clean product. So thanks to the authors and editor!

As for the stories, I generally second the review from Oh Yeah! There are a few places where it feels to me like the writing craft is still being honed.…

Friending Ex-Boyfriend on Classmates.com and Burying Old Ghosts

icon2I have really been letting this blog go slack lately and I apologize. I know I don’t have that many readers in the first place, but at the rate I’m going that’s hardly going to change for the better. Know that I am still here and at this point I have no intention of letting this blog die.

It’s just that sometimes I get caught up in personal drama and it diverts my energies away from more positive ends to become a Sucking Vortex Of Doom™. And that’s what’s happened in the past several days, I’m sorry to report.

I think I mentioned here several weeks ago that I had signed up for an account at Reunion.com and discovered that someone had been looking for me, and that upon plugging a certain person’s name into Google and locating him at Classmates.com,

I realized I had been searched for by an old lover and Army buddy.…
