If you want to make money online then you need to find an effective system which has been developed to assist you in doing so. Unless you have an extensive knowledge of internet marketing / affiliate marketing which is highly recommended to become successful online then you need to become involved with a program that will guide you through the steps to success.

Remember you will not reach your goal and making money online unless you are willing to do the time. What I mean by this is there are a lot of wishful individuals crying scam to everything online since they did not make millions overnight. If you ask them a specific question for example; did you spend a minimum of 2 hours a day working the program and following the directions? I can guarantee you that most will say no I did not see any success after a week so I get up or killed scam.

This is unfortunate for a lot of individuals who could see success and for a lot of business opportunities who receive a bad rap for this reason. I for one have tried numerous online / work at home opportunities until I found the one for me. Yes there are a lot of opportunities out there and not all are for everyone. I did not cry scam when they did not make me a millionaire overnight I just moved on. I did see an opportunity in each product or program it just did not work for me or my schedule.

One thing I did learn during my many trials is that that it takes a lot of time and effort to get an online business going and to keep it going. The internet gurus as we call them did not have success over night. They also had to work many hours to get were they are. The one thing about putting in the time (may be many years of hard work) is ever we will be were they and able to now create our own hours.

If you have an open mind, can follow directions and not try to reinvent the wheel then you too can be successful with an online / work at home opportunity. If you are looking to get rich overnight and do not have to do any work then I would suggest you move on to something else.

Back to my opening statement about finding an effective system to help you reach your goals; there are many out there that are just as good as the next you just have to find what works for you. You can check out my directory to find a listing of the Top Picks for 2007 and hopefully find something that works for you. Just remember if you're not willing to commit the time than please move on to something else.
