When I first started trying to make money online, I even was influenced by a lot of this and that really stopped me making real progress online. It was only when I acted and started a real business that the results started to come.

Last, but certainly not least, when looking at a business opportunity, you want to know about the compensation plan. You want to know how a company is going to reward you for the work that you do.

Therefore, the failure rate is so high in this industry. People are there for the emotions not the business. People so often get caught up in the feel-good side of the industry they forget why they got started in the first place. For most people they saw an opportunity to make some extra money from home. This is not to say that there are sometimes legitimate reasons to look for a new business. Sometimes there are. The problem is that when you make the move to a new type of business you take yourself with you.

I have seen people who currently make excellent money offline invest some of that to build a six-figure income. I’ve also seen people who start with virtually nothing and over time develop a six-figure income.

The possibilities are certainly there for anyone to make this kind of money. The internet does not discriminate in terms of who can be successful and who cannot.

But while you may think the search can be frustrating, it isn’t all hopeless. There are legitimate home business opportunities out there and yes you can earn money from them. If you do want to start your own business don’t give up your search.

This hope is the driving force of life. In fact, you may remember that a Presidential Election was just won based on hope. It’s up to you to decide if that promise of hope has been kept but the fact is that you can learn a lot from that campaign.
