I started my website back in September of 2004 with one goal in mind: to help provide information for people who want to work from home. My mission: to provide as much free information as I could to help people start making money online. My objective: to eventually replace my full-time income that I gave up in order to stay-home with my daughter. So after 6 months of work, where am I? I have a business that is giving me an income of about $800 per month. I know, you’re saying, that’s not a lot, but let’s look at the facts. I am a self-taught web designer with a background in Business. Since starting Melody’s Mommy I have read everything I can get my hands on about building web pages, and making money online. My income is steadily increasing and I love what I do. Best of all, I am doing it my way! That’s what makes me successful. By this time next year, I should be a lot closer to where I want to be with my at-home income.
So the moral to the story? Choose something you are interested in. Look at what you do in life and see where your talents are? Do you have a special knowledge about something? Take these ideas and start surfing the internet and see how people are making money by doing what you are interested in. Love gardening?
