Find a subject that you are passionate about, or at least one topic that you know a lot about, and then choose from the Top 10 list above a way that you could deliver that information on the Internet. For instance, if you are passionate about cats and cat care, adoptions, and such, you could start your own website that you can write your own articles about cats, and the best ways to care for them, and even offer a way for people in your local area to adopt a pet (just take a look at PetFinder.com and you’ll see how one small idea can effect an entire nation of people and their pets!).

Or maybe you have an unusual job right now that you are an expert in and that information can be useful to others, then write about it and publish an ebook on Kindle. Or if you love researching online, then a Freelance Writing job may be just the ticket for you!

Ask any business owner and they will tell you that it took hard work, getting back up after making a few mistakes, and 3-5 years to get going and make profits. But that is not true online, and so you can take advantage of that, instead of 3-5 years, it may only take you one year, or maybe 6 months. By using social media, and a few programs that will help your business grow faster, you may be surprised at just how fast you can grow! But you have to give your business some time to grow.

Any ‘guru’ online will tell you that they had to work their butts off for a year or more to get whee they are today.  There is just no way around it – there is work and YOU have to make it happen, whether you do it yourself or outsource it.

A small warning….. don’t be a victim to overload. There are lots of programs, information and seminars that you can go to about your home based business, but it is very easy to get overwhelmed by all of it and that leads to 1 of 2 things:

Do you remember how we started out at the top of this page?  A business built on hype will get you no where. You have to choose the best path for your business. Make a plan, set some daily goals for yourself, make an investment in learning what you can about a subject that you need for your business to grow. And most importantly, make the investment of time into your business, even if it is only one hour every night – make that one hour count and do at least one action that will take you to your goal of making money in your home based business idea!
