Make Money and Be Profitable

You’ve heard all the claims before I’m sure. Make millions selling on ebay, make millions working from home on the internet. Yes, most of those claims are false, it takes a lot of work and time to make any money online, there’s way to many scams and things out there that discourage people from actually taking an idea and running with it to make some great income. A lot of people are surprised with how much I make online doing various things, there’s a way to go about doing it, and a way not to.

A great book I was introduced to recently helps those out there who really want to make some great income on the internet. I’m still reading through my copy, but so far, there’s been some great and helpful advice and chapters on how to actually make a profitable income online with the right skill and the right tools.

The Book: Internet Riches – The Simple Money-Making Secrets of Online Millionaires
The Author: Scott Fox

About The Book: In Internet Riches, top e-business consultant Scott Fox reveals the powerful but simple strategies that he and other entrepreneurs have used to start and build their million-dollar enterprises. Packed with interviews, action plans, and a nuts-and-bolts overview of everything you need to know to design and market your e-business, the book gives you clear insights into the most promising e-business opportunities out there (including instant e-businesses that require almost NO start-up capital); powerful action plans for brainstorming new business ideas, plus guidelines on pre=testing them before investing a single penny; and inspiring examples of innovative companies that grew out of a single great idea. This is the most powerful guide ever to finding financial freedom online!

About The Author: Scott Fox is the top e-business consultant in Hollywood, where his clients have included Bill O’Reilly and Larry King. He is a frequent speaker of e-business and entrepreneurship at universities, including NYU, USC, and UCLS, and at conferences such as Digital Hollywood and Internet World. He has been featured on radio programs nationwide, as well as in The Boston Globe, the Orange County Register, Toronto Globe & Mail, and Smart Money magazine. He has taught “Internet Riches” at the Learning Annex. Scott lives in Los Angeles, California and blogs at www.ScottFox.com

I am really into this book right now, I’m intrigued by having my own online business and this book so far is giving some great insight on the right way to do it to be profitable. This isn’t a book about how to “Get Rich Quick”, it’s a great read for those who are serious about making any profit online with a business. I should be through the entire thing very soon, but wanted to let you all know about it while it was fresh in my mind. Especially for us bloggers looking to turn a profit and making our blog just the beginning of a business venture, I would recommend this book highly!

I almost forgot to mention that Scott's book has been the #1 best seller on both Amazon.com's E-Commerce list and High Tech Careers list, his book Internet Riches has also been the #1 best seller in the UK as well on Amazon.co.uk's E-Commerce list, so you know this is a great book to have if your looking at an online venture and how to make money with it.

You can buy Internet Riches online at Amazon.com and while your there, check out all the great and rave reviews this book has received.

You can give me a million and see
if I will change
You can afford me the luxury, I know it can be arranged
One quick look
Through Scott's priceless book
Will do me a world of good
Can't becomes can, should becomes would
For no other words stick
As much as the phrase--"get rich quick"!

Boy, do I need this!! I've personally wasted a small fortune on websites, hosting, domain names, content, advertising, not to mention the personal time wasted in maintaining and promoting them.
