An “opportunity” that really isn’t is no opportunity at all! So make sure your “once in a lifetime” opportunity lives up to its description before you join. You want to be certain that every window to become successful is wide open for you.

Start your own business. Some people do incredibly well by finding a home business that matches their interests and life experience. While you may be tempted to search for a regular “job,” know that that is not your only option! Give some thought to your strongest interests and passions in life.

You just have to find the one that works for you.

What I will do is not to send traffic to a sales page, but to an opt-in page (like the one in resource box). The reason is because I want to build a subscribers list. If I build a list, I can leverage the traffic my site gets and turn that traffic into repeat traffic. Which means I can turn 100 visitors into 300 or even 500 repeat visits, all because of the email marketing system I have.
