Starting Online Business? Watch Out

Are you interested in starting online business? Years ago when I lost my business and home in a painful divorce and couldn’t get a high enough paying job I determined starting online business was the way I would learn to make money from home. As so many others have, I got stung a few times with internet marketing scams. Ouch! In this article, I show you what to watch out for. How to Tell If You Are About To Be Scammed I’ve been making a good living with affiliate marketing and an online business at home since 2009.  But it wasn’t always that way.  In fact, when I was first starting online business, I lost money on a few internet marketing scams. It was money I could not afford to lose but I figured it was all part of my learning what to do to achieve online marketing success and mostly, what not to do. You’ve probably seen some of the same marketing schemes or been flooded in your email inbox with giant ads and annoying videos promising you the moon and the stars if only you sign up for their one-click wonder program.

Online Marketing Until 2010, most of my adult life was tied into trading time for dollars. I tried a few online virtual companies but they fulfilled neither my purpose nor the passion I have for helping women make money by starting their own online business at home. There is no right or wrong about that way of making money but I always found myself feeling overworked, under compensated and unsatisfied. I have worked at a number of jobs but none brought me the kind of fulfillment or income that I enjoy today. You can read the details of my story, but in a few words, I was tied to my brick and mortar business trading time for dollars until a few years ago when I lost everything...

Mission shoppers might buy snowsuits for their toddler, acne cream for their teenager, backpacks, tennis shoes or games for their twelve year old.
