Why I Started an Online Home Business

The main reason I started an online home business is that I was looking for an altogether fresh start that had nothing to do with the financial markets. Having worked in the financial services industry for the last 25 years I have seen all sides of people, good and bad. I have seen the lengths that people will go to make money and the levels of greed associated with it. I have seen money come and money go. I have seen many people make thousands and many people lose thousands.

Perhaps, considering my opening comments you might say that I had become jaded; well maybe that’s true! I was conditioned throughout my life to think that this was the only way that I could make a good, honest and legitimate income. It was one way, but certainly not the only way. I was involved for a short time in a Multi-Level Marketing program some 11 or 12 years ago; may I add with little success, as it relied heavily on recruiting people to join your “Downline” and getting them to repeat the process through recruiting their own “Downline”, and then everyone needed to buy products on a regular basis, at an inflated price, so everyone could make thousands upon thousands of dollars. All that I managed to do was alienate my friends and family.

With the growth of the Internet and with the development of sophisticated software and marketing programs I decided it was time for a fresh look at what was available, and to my surprise the world had changed! I thought to myself “Now, here’s a chance to make some good money for the right person”. “Am I the right person for this?”, I thought. Could I actually do this?, I thought. I mean, “I’d tried this before and it didn’t work out as I had planned”, I thought. I suppose the question came down to what I would need to do, who I would need to talk to, who could show me, or train me, who had the experience, or who could give me the tools that I would need to go about things the right way this time.

So the search began, and after looking at many different systems and programs that appeared promising, until further research and investigation crossed them off the list one by one, until I finally stumbled quite literally on to something that looked like it might actually work. By stumble, I mean that they found me through some program that finds people who have entered certain information into certain websites. Quite clever I thought. I’m sure if I was more of the generation of my teenage son I wouldn’t have been so impressed that they knew what I was looking for. Mind you; kids are born with some sort of electronic device attached to them these days; whereas my generation was lucky to have a box of old hand me down toys that had been through older brothers and sisters.

Anyway, I digress; back to the matter at hand. What I discovered is there is indeed legitimate ways of earning money through a home business on the Internet, and the best thing about it is that you don’t have to “sell stuff ” to everyone you know in order to “make a buck”. You just have to find the right online home business that suits you! And, remember that “Nothing worthwhile comes for free, and you might actually have to do some work to achieve what you want in life “, well sometimes.
