What Home Business Ideas and Resources Do You Need

If you are looking for home business ideas and resources that are not here, just ask me on my contact page as I may just have them at my finger tips but not yet put them up here.

Until you need things like a full-blown sales database and invoicing system just use a simple exel invoice and basic filing system. If you are selling online then your payment processors provide these facilities for you but it is still wise to have your own as well.


If you like my free

Think And Grow Rich

The Affiliate Masters Course

My personal first choice and nearly the book that’s been on my book case for the longest. I try and read this six times a year!

If you like me needed to undo some of the damage that the contemporary way in which we are raised, learn and work then I really recommend "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill.

I could have done with this book before I finished my schooling, which by the way was not the best, nor did I attend a college or university after finishing high school. I now work for myself and my businesses are growing.

I put this success after some failures purely down to reading books like this one and others like it.

The power of the words of Napoleon Hill has helped me to pick myself up, really figure out what I want out of life and fuel the fires of burning desire, made me put on the blinkers and go and get what I want out of life.

Whether you are a person who already has academic excellence and success but still wishes to grow further and achieve higher goals,  or you are like me and tried and failed but did not give up and if you have a burning desire for success in whatever you want to do, then "Think and Grow Rich" could be your answer as it was mine!

Just start reading it twenty minutes a day and when you finish it, just start all over again.

The Affiliate Masters Course

The Affiliate Masters Course

The Affiliate Masters Course is an intensive 10-DAY course on becoming a high-earning affiliate champion. How? By “building income through content,” the proven,
C ~> T ~> P ~> M way!

An affiliate business is one of the easiest ways to get your feet wet in e-business. You send visitors (i.e., potential customers) to a merchant’s Web site that you are representing. If they buy or complete a required action (for example, fill in a form, buy a product or service), the merchant pays you a commission. No fuss, no muss!

That, in essence, is the beauty of the affiliate concept. You can be up and building an online business in record time, at minimal risk. Top-notch merchants supply everything (i.e., excellent products, ordering, credit card processing, and delivery).

All you need to do is to put yourself in the path between customers and quality merchants... and earn a commission for your efforts. So what’s the best way to put yourself on that critical pathway?

Follow the natural, proven CONTENT ~> TRAFFIC ~> PRE-SELL ~> MONETISE process…

The Webmaster Business Masters Course


Attract, Manage and Build Your Clients to a WIN-WIN Business Success. Build Your Webmastering Business While Building Your Clients' Business.

Every day, thousands of people think about starting their own Webmaster business. Some want to break away from the daily drudgery of working for someone else. Some crave the flexibility of working from home. Some need to supplement their main income. Some feel they are ready to expand their services beyond their circle of contacts. Still others… the list of personal reasons could go and on.

But here’s the catch…

Every day, most of these people do nothing but dream. The Webmaster BUSINESS Masters Course was written for Webmasters who are ready to stop dreaming and start building a home-based Web site design business.

That’s you!

Perhaps you are presently employed full-time/part-time in the field. Or perhaps you design sites for relatives, friends or associates as a favour in your spare time. It doesn’t matter. You already know, based on current and past experiences, that consumer demand for Webmaster services is substantial and that it’s not about to evaporate anytime soon.

You are definitely not embarking on a high risk business proposition.

On top of that, you will have all of the advantages of working from home…

  • no office to rent.
  • no boss telling you what to do.
  • flexibility to pick your own hours.
  • ability to generate income in your living room.
  • and the biggest advantage of all, you’re the person in charge. You decide how, when and where you want to work.

The Webmaster BUSINESS Masters Course will get your business rolling in the right direction. It gives an insider's view into some of the variables involved in setting up a business, creating a contract, working with clients, and other important operational aspects.

Make Your Price Sell!, The Masters Course

Make Your Price Sell!, The Masters Course

Maximise Profits ...
Price Your Product With Complete Confidence

The successful producer of an article sells it for more than it cost him to make, and that’s his profit. But the customer buys it only because it is worth more to him than he pays for it, and that’s his profit. No one can long make a profit producing anything unless the customer makes a profit using it.
--Samuel Pettengill, U.S. Congressman 1930’s

On the Internet, time waits for no company. Your customer has access to tons of information through the Web. Your competitor is a mere mouse click away. You have to get the price right... the first time. In the digital market scene, there are very few second chances.

Pricing is risky. What price is too high? What price is too low? Will a certain price work three months from now? Do you know? Do you know for sure?

Pricing is one of the most important marketing decisions you will make. So much hinges upon it…

For the small business owner, pricing guidance, as well as pricing solutions, are limited on the Net -- unless you have deep pockets and can afford expensive consultants or software packages. Until now, that is…

Make Your Price Sell!, The Masters Course is your pricing “beacon of light.” It provides you with the pricing theory and strategies you need to know in order to determine the best price for your product – the “perfect price” that maximises profit for you… and for your customer.

Why People Fail

Why People Fail
by Ken Evoy

This booklet is dedicated to those who arrive here ready to ask themselves the hard questions (such as, "Why haven't I succeeded yet?"), ready to recognise themselves in here, ready to reinvent themselves in order to succeed.


What is the difference between those who succeed and those who fail?

As President of SiteSell.com, I have seen hundreds of thousands of small business people apply the information in our books, use Site Build It!, and/or subscribe to our various e-zines and courses. E-mail from them later reveals results that range from wild success to failure to even get started!

Naturally, many more succeed than fail or we would not be in business, growing rapidly online since 1997.

But why the two results?

What magic attribute separates the winners?

I have seen ordinary-IQ folks succeed beyond belief. And I’ve seen bright people fail miserably.
So the difference is not intelligence.

I’ve seen a few “lucky stiffs” come up with the right idea at the right place at the right time -- don’t count on duplicating “lightning in a bottle.” I’ve also seen people try harder than is humanly possible... and fall flat on their faces.

So the difference is not “trying hard,” although, that certainly helps to better the success equation, when combined with the refusal to give up, and the ability to learn from failure.

The bottom line?

There is no single path to success. But there are clear failure habits that almost guarantee failure.

When I look at folks who win online, it’s obvious that they do not possess those failure habits/traits...


And that is where this book was born. After all... Success is merely the absence of failure.

This booklet, with the best intentions and a rather brutal but somewhat tongue-in cheek (to take the sting out) approach, points out certain personality types. If you’ve dealt with human beings for more than a few years, you’ll likely recognise them.

But recognising them is not important. The question is this...

If you have not yet succeeded at business, will you recognise yourself? Will you conclude that you possess one or more of these failure-inducing faults?
