Certainly youve heard at least some of the numerous
stories of how one individuals idea was turned into a modern day icon
of business success. Behind the successes of FedEx, Microsoft, Ebay, Amazon.com,
McDonalds and many others was the common force of the perseverance of the

I know this will be important for you because Ive been there myself.
My advice, evolved from my own experiences when retiring
from the US Air Force and through several transformations since then,
applies to anyone contemplating a new venture, regardless of age. I have given
this same advice to my children and theirs, as well as my friends and clients.
When about to embark on a new direction in your life you have earned the
time -- and luxury -- of considered
reflection about what you wish to do with the rest of our life. So, its time to get started. And, when you have finished your initial journey, be sure to
complete your assignment.**
Youre searching for the best online business
opportunity for you. Your basic options (categories of online businesses) are:
Sell your own existing or new product/service (such as starting your own
business or launching a new venture from an established business)
Sell someone elses products/services (through a franchise or being a
Help others sell their products/services (as a representative, referral
In my 1997 transformation from the traditional corporate environment, I looked at various alternatives to self-employment. They ranged from starting my own business (lots of risk), buying (including franchising) someone elses business, or becoming a consultant (often used to find another job). Ultimately I chose the franchise route. I knew that meant learning (and strictly following) someone elses established business process. Over time I came to realize that monetary success was not as important as the freedom to implement my own ideas and see them grow into a new reality. That had been the common ingredient of all my past successes in lifetime. In your evaluation of online business opportunities you must assess how the elements of your own past successes will contribute. The more elements that are present the greater will be your potential for success.

Step lesson will walk you through this process.) *
and distribution rights included
Here are some online business opportunities:
Sell/promote others products/services
using the new MLM-Network Marketing approach.
The new proven Network Marketing/MLM
approach emphasizes relationship marketing. It can be used with any Network
Marketing program. There is no selling or chasing leads.
Prospective clients come
to you. This approach starts with a solid foundation of building immediate
income to grow your business. You set up a solid income building foundation and
learn/implement proven techniques which can be applied to any web business.
you have an interest in finding out more about this approach, please contact us
using the form below.
NOTE from Richard: I guarantee you that this is new -- and
Sell your own products/services.
Using selling your own publication as an example, you have two choices. Author
your own publications or buy the rights to existing publications and sell them
through traditional distribution channels (bookstores and online). Lets first look at
authoring and selling your own publication. (I highly recommend that you review
Knowledge Sell" before you embark on your own publication. If you
purchase a copy you also get as a bonus a complete report on buying the right to
publications authored by others.)

If you plan to publish in hard copy, when you have completed your publication and it is ready to
be printed most likely you will wish to contract with an on demand publishing
service such as is provided by Trafford on Demand Publishing Service (www.Trafford.com).
Trafford has its own bookstore plus cost-effective, global sales channels to
make your product easily purchased. They also provide a website (linked to their
bookstore). You also purchase copies (at a very affordable cost) of your product
to sell/distribute yourself. As the author you retain complete control over the sale
and distribution of your product. Trafford pays you a royalty for what they sell
and you pocket the net from your own sales.
Trafford also supports electronic publication. If you
decide your product is appropriate for electronic distribution you have some
other choices including listing your product through ClickBank which has a built
in affiliate network ready to promote your product (click
here to see how easy it is to list your online product through ClickBank).
Here is a example ClickBank listing of Write
and Publish Your Own e-Book in as Little as 7 Days.
Comment; If you want
to be an author and produce and distribute your own products this is
attractive route. However, once you complete your masterpiece you now have to
sell it. Trafford has a number of distribution channels but ultimately you
will have to promote your publication yourself either by personal
presentations or using an online sales force of affiliates.1
Another approach is to buy to rights to books already
completed. You can set up your own bookstore and have the rights to a number of
books for just $49.95. Click
here to review an online business opportunity at Instant Bookstores.2
If you really want to pursue
eBooks as a profitable source
of income, you should read Jim Edward's best selling eBook, "How
to Make Massive Amounts of Money With Your Own eBook (Whether You Wrote It Or
Not!)". Jim surveyed 814 of his customers and they told him what they
wanted to do. So he put it all down in this book, including them how one author
is making $35,000 a month with just one eBook -- and much more. (BTW, I use one

However, to be successful in any online business you will have to master the art of developing and maintaining a website
that will draw targeted visitors ready to buy your publication. Click
here to find out how you can order/download the best course (free of course) on
developing a website that sells your product.
Sell someone elses
products/services. There are a number of
ways to do this. One is that you can become a reseller or agent for another
company. A good example of this is the opportunity offered by Cognigen Networks,
Inc (OTC CGNW). The company offers a number of telecommunications products
plus extensive support for free agents to sell their products online.
here for a rundown on some of the products which an agent may offer through his
own personalized website. You can review the business opportunity Cognigen
offers by clicking
What immediately impressed me about the Cognigen program is
that the company gives its agents full training and support to be a success and
they understand that to be successful online an agent must pursue supported by a
website that attracts targeted potential buyers already interested in the
products being offered. NOTE: Cognigen also offers their agents health and life
Another way to sell the products/services of others is to
buy a turnkey business. As in any business venture, be sure you fully understand
everything about the business and what will be required before you make any
financial commitment. In particular you need to understand what you will be
getting for your investment. Having given my due diligence caution, let me give
you a couple turnkey online business opportunities.
Money you can purchase a ready-made affiliate program (get commissions for
referring visitors to your site to a sellers website). Depending on the program
you select, do have some flexibility about the programs that will be included at
can join a particularly good affiliate opportunity with the highly recommended
Success Associate Program.
Founder Neil Shearing
gives many great benefits and fees to his affiliates.
A final example of an online business opportunity at selling
someone elses products in this manner. Corey Rudl was perhaps one of the most
successful personalities in online marketing. Derek Gehl assumed leadership of
Corey's company after his premature death. He now markets the many products that
Corey developed and other new ones.. Click
here to see what Derek will pay you for pre-selling (referring folks to his
products). I use his Mailloop
to handle my Newsletter and email
lists. I also use his eBook

software to promote my own products and services (click

and "Drop Shipping" for additional information written by Corey.)
success in any of these online business opportunities will depend on your

Perhaps the hottest online
business opportunity today is in the field of affiliate programs. The idea is
that a vendor will give you a commission if you send prospect to their web site
who may eventually buy a product. There are a number of variations on how you
get compensated and before you commit to any vendor, be sure you fully
