Almost everyone needs or wants more money to be made, and with this desire most would like to start some sort of extra income producing project. The trouble is, not many of these people seem to be able to fit "a second job" into their time schedules.

It's true that most people are busy, but putting extra time for some sort of home-based extra income producing project can always be found. It could mean giving up or changing a few of your favorite pastimes -- such as having a couple of beers with your Buddy's or watching TV -- but if you score big with your extra income project,you will have all the time you want for doing whatever you want to do.

Efficient time management boils down to planning what you're going to do, and then doing it without backtracking. Start by making a list of the things you want to do tomorrow, each evening before you go to bed. Schedule your trips to the store or wherever to coincide with the other things you have to do, and with your trips to or from work. Organize your trips to take care of as many things as possible while you're out of the house. Take stock of the time you spend on the telephone and eliminate all that isn't necessary.

Whatever chores you have to do at home, set aside a specific time to do them, and a specific amount of time to devote to them. For instances, just an hour a day devoted to yard work would probably make your property the envy of all your neighbors. Don't try to do a week's work in one big flurry. Whether it's painting your house, fixing leaky faucets, or mopping your floor and trimming your plants, do a part of it, or one particular job each day, and you'll be amazed at your progress.

Take care of all your mail the day, you receive it. Don't let those bills and letters pile up on you. If you're unable to pay a bill immediately, file it in a special place that's visible, and note on the envelope the date you intend to pay it. Answer your letters the same day you get them.

Once you start listing and planning what you want to do, and then carry out your plans, you'll find plenty of "extra time" for handling virtually any kind of home-based income producing project. People in general may not like routines or schedules, but without some sort of plan as to what is supposed to be done, the world would be mired in mass confusion. Laws, ordinances and regulations are for the purpose of guiding people. We live according to an accepted plan or way of life, and the better we can organize ourselves, the more productive and happy we become.

The secret of all financially successful people is simply that they are organized and do not waste time. Think about it. Review your own activities, and then see if you can't find a couple of extra hours in each day for more constructive accomplishments.

When you begin planning, and then when you really become involved in an extra income producing endeavor, you should work it exactly as you have organized your regular day-to-day activities --- on a time basis. Do what has to be done immediately. Don't try to get things done in a hour that's realistically going to take a week. Plan out on paper what you have to do--what you want to do -- and when you are going to do it. Then get right on each project without procrastination.

Finally, and above all else, when you're organizing your time and your business, be sure to set aside some time for relaxation. Be sure to schedule time when you and your spouse can be together.You must not involve yourself to an extent that you exclude other people -- particularly your loved ones -- from your life.

Taking stock of the time you waste each day, and from there, reorganizing your activities is what it's all about. It's a matter of becoming more efficient in the use of your time. It's really easy to do, and you will not only accomplish a lot more,you will also find greater fulfillment in your life.

"Maximum Exposure on Low Cost Internet Ad"

Why do people advertise on the web pages that they are hosting ? To make money of course !

But how do they make the most of a low cost Internet advertising method ?

Advertising had long since been a major determinant of a business' success. This would include the presentation of the product / service to the consumers. What really matters is how it is presented to the target market to be able to capture it.

Whatever the package, the ad media also plays a great role in determining the success of the product or service awareness.

What may be its advantages over other proven medium like the best-selling TV ads?


1. Low Cost

Even though the Internet ad might be viewed as "classy" or far-reaching, as compared to other medium, this is far cheaper than other kind of advertisement. Internet Ad Packages are offered for as low as $29.99 for a one-month run-time period.

2. Capture market

When your product / service are designed to cater to the younger generation or the corporate-oriented ones, using of Internet ads would be best option since most of the time they are always "hooked-up" in the net. The links to your site will greatly enhance the number of "hits" on your site! If they are converted to sales, then you would be making money from it.

2. Hassle free

All you really need is a PC (and with some knowledge and bright ideas in forming a site of your own.) You can search for the best Internet Ad package that is available in the net, by affiliating your site to theirs, you are able to check or update the status of your ad. For the technical savvy users, you can even design your own Ads before posting for usage.

3. Updated ads

Unlike the TV ads that need to be updated on a regular basis, Internet ads may run for quite some time without the need for change. If so, change in the site is very minimal and can be done easily at home.


1. Scope

Limited market can be captured if one solely rely on the use of Internet Ad for advertising. Although most people now are into the use of technology, i.e. surfing the Internet, still, majority of the average consumers still relies on the old form of advertising as a means of gathering information about certain products / service.

2. Additional cost

If one would enlist the help of professional or establishment to produce the site for their product or service, this would incur additional costs on the part of the entrepreneur. The cost to produce an advertisement can be very costly.

Given the stated list of advantages and disadvantages about low-cost Internet Ad, an entrepreneur still find it viable to advertise on the web for 2 main reasons :

b. The exposure of your website becomes international and all these business can be carried out at the comfort of your home.

What is money and how it is being created ?

With all this turmoil and confusion that the financial world is going through, I am always bewildered by the fact that a huge business entity such as Lehman Brothers can go bankrupt overnight followed by AIG who is also in trouble.

As I am not a financial man, I really have no idea where has all the money gone to. Who is raking up all these money ? How did the US government comes up with the $700 billion to buy back the debts ? etc

However, I came across a video by Paul Grignon which is very interesting for ANYONE who might be interested to know what is money and how it is being created ? It communicates an exceedingly complex subject in simple terms for everyday people using animation to bring the big picture across.

I hope it is entertaining enough for you to understand about why the bankers are so rich and how you could protect your money from now on.

Wait 15s for the video to commence. Although the whole explanation of "Money as Debt" is about 47 minute but I have learn much about money to understand the danger we are going through today. I hope it educate you too.

A New Beginning !

The past few articles were written to allow those who come to my blog to understand that everybody has their own dream to pursue in life. Not everyone will appreciate what was written in this blog, however, my purpose for getting involved in Blogging is :

1. I can learn a "new" technology (been around for at least 5 years or more) to reach out to others in the web to gain knowledge.

2. I can learn from the real experts all over the web on how to make money with minimal cost.

3. Learning has no limit, therefore, I prefer to ingest good stuff into my brain rather than all the negative craps I see daily. They comes in the form of advertisement, newspaper, Television news and much more. The information that these media gives out has more negativity than it was 10 to 20 years ago.

4. What I know, I can share with others who might be searching for it. What I do not know, I will learn from the wise ( as there are many in the web ).

5. I can communicate more effectively with close friends, customers or relatives as they will understand me more ( when they read my articles ). As long as the Blog is alive, they can always refer back to whatever articles that might influenced them at a later stage.

6. It will helps me to improve on my writing habit, fluency or grammar over a period of time. I believe that Information today is valuable. As more and more people are hungry for informations, we can make use of it to make a profit too.

With this blog, I will try to append as much informations regarding businesses, self-development matter or any other "lobang" which I feel will benefit those around me. As for business matter, the main Blog will be at which is shared by a friend who is also keen to embark on to Internet Marketing.

"For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin--real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life"- Alfred D. Souza

What to consider when ready to do business

When you have registered your business, you actually upgraded yourself to an Employer or a Business Owner status. You will start to do things that will benefit your business plan and you will be extremely conscious with your spending ( expenses ).

Whatever you do, your ultimate aim is profitability. It is a long process and it usually takes quite a while for you to break-even or to start making more money.

Your utmost concern is to identify where and how to start the business proper.

The usual considerations are as follows :

Your Workplace

• Choosing and setting up an office can be challenging. You might want it to be situated near your home or perhaps in a presentable and prime area such as the business district. However, Cost usually is the main factor here.

• What kind of office equipments will be required for your operation ? Do you need transportation for the type of your business you are providing ? E.g. Computer System, Printer, Telephone, Fax Machine or a Truck.

• How to keep the place safe from people you are working with you ? E.g. Buying Fire or Home Protection Insurance, Workman Compensation Plan, Safety Goggles or accessories etc

Inventories, Taxes, Payroll and Bonuses

• How are you going to keep track of your documents for the following matters :

Income, Corporate and other business taxes
Employment ( Records of Employee )
Sales and Marketing
Financial Control, operations and transportation
Contractors and Suppliers
IT and e-Commerce
Importing and Exporting
Minutes of Meeting for your business
Trainings or Seminars
and much more……

Most of these new owners or entrepreneurs usually get over-whelmed in the beginning because the Number One concern they have in order to satisfy the above is to have more money.

Very often, when they are new in the market, the trust level of customers may not be high and this affects the profitability of the business. However, as time goes by, they will eventually get more businesses when the customers trust them more and more.

When the going gets tough, these enterprising businessman will usually look at their business plan to make modification where necessary. Some will reach their goal faster than the others.

Meanwhile they always remind themselves the purpose for doing the business as well as the outcome they can derived from doing it. Some of these purposes are :

• The satisfaction of owning their own business!
• The ability to work as much, or as little, as they want!
• The flexibility to set their own work schedule!
• The pride of a job well done!
• The joy of helping others!
• A chance to spend more quality time with family and friends!
• The power to control their financial future!
• The option to take vacations whenever they feel like it!
Plus much, MUCH MORE!

Here is Napoleon Hill's take on living our dreams:

” First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination.”
