Starting an Online Business – Are You Building Your Internet Business Like a 5th Grader?

As a former classroom teacher, I tend to think of my marketing style as one of marketing to fifth graders. I loved teaching that age group, ten and eleven years old, and they were eager to please me as the teacher. Now that I teach adults all over the world how to start an online business and make money from their computer, there are many similarities I have observed. Teaching these people is like working with fifth graders. They are confused and sometimes take no action until I give them specific directions. Once they understand what to do, there is no stopping them from achieving their goals. That is part of what I love about what I do. All of us want to be appreciated and to know someone out there cares, so when my students receive an unexpected gift from me they are deeply touched. I used to surprise my fifth graders with cookies or a video; my adult students get excited when I record a video for them or hold a webinar on a Saturday morning to help them. It’s very similar if you think about it. In both cases I am showing the people, no matter what their age, that I truly care about them. My fifth graders would also become very lazy with their assignments if I did not stay on them. My adult students need to be prodded along at times, and I make sure to remind them what to do. Many times people do not take action for another reason, so finding out what the underlying problem is will definitely make a difference...

Start An Internet Business Now

It’s Time To Build And Protect Wealth by Michael D. Hume, M.S. There are several reasons now is the perfect time to start an internet business, or to migrate some/all of your brick-and-mortar business to the world of click-and-order. First, the liberal government continues its desperate dash toward driving America to socialism. As long as they still have the upper hand, the environment for more passive investment will be bad, and trending worse. Most of the “smart money” will stay on the sidelines until President Obama and his liberal majorities in both houses of Congress have moved into history; their control of the House of Representatives ends in just a few days. Meanwhile, they continue their scorched-earth efforts by attempting to set up as many tax-and-spend edifices as they can for the new conservative House to have to dismantle, including a new effort to regulate the internet itself. Ultimately, most of these efforts will be reversible, and the current momentum is clearly in the direction of removing the collectivist/statists and installing new lawmakers who believe in the free market that made the U.S. economy great. Entrepreneurs with vision – those who take personal responsibility now to get themselves into business on the ‘net – will lead this reversal into happier economic times. You want to be part of this new wave of inspirational leadership. The current political/economic environment also means things are changing in the world economy, and changing in big ways. There is a multi-trillion dollar wealth transfer already underway, and the money will move from the uninformed to the informed – from those who cling to old...
