Real Ways To Make Money From Home For Free

In today’s tough economy, more and more people are looking for a way to make a few extra bucks. The problem is that many of the things they stumble upon are often scams.

When someone comes across a few scams, their level of confidence often goes into the toilet. They feel that every opportunity is a scam because so many of them have turned out to be. So, if you have been scammed, please know that you are not alone and it is not your fault. Now, if you are looking for real ways to make money from home for free, you are in the right place at the right time. I know you may have heard that before. I really mean it though. I have been involved in making money online for many years. I have done everything from typing to working as a virtual assistant to making phone calls to building my own websites. Trust me, you can make a living online doing what you love to do.

The problem as I see it is that no one has taken you by the hand and shown you the roadmap of real ways to make money from home for free. I know because I have looked for that magic bullet myself to no avail. However, I have put together a few roadmaps in my day and I know that there are places when you can do just that, make money from home. Yes, you can do it for free sometimes. Often it could cost you just a small amount of money. For example, to host your own website or online business you may have to pay for a domain name and hosting. This cost is around $15 a month or so. I would say that it is well worth an investment of fifteen dollars a month, $180 a year to have your own business online.

I know you want to find real ways to make money from home for free and they are around for sure. You may also want to look into your own website at a point too. Why? Simple… because it is the one thing you have control over. For example, a few years ago people put their stock in a site called Squidoo. This site was amazing and peopleused it and built un incomes around it. One day the owner did away with it. It was taken over by what is now called hub pages. The problem is that HubPages works differently than Squidoo. So everyone who put their eggs in that basket got them all cracked when the website shut down.

If you want real ways to make money from home for free, we can help you with that. Just do some tasks included in one of our guides and at some point, start your own website. Trust us on this one.

We understand the need for everyday people like you and me to be able to support our family with money we make online. What would an extra one hundred dollars a day do for you? I know, it could certainly help. Let’s go even lower, what if you only make $50 or $100 a week online? So what right? Money is money. If you can find real ways to make money from home for free, that would be amazing. Don’t you think? We do.

Small Business Ideas and Changing the World

Great small businesses are started by great small business ideas. Look into any business anywhere and you will find somewhere in the development there was an idea by someone, who did something about it, started a business, built the business, and benefitted others by it.

I am an “idea” guy. Why? Because ideas are the genesis of all things, and surely all things pertaining to business. If the idea is good enough, and the individual acting on the idea is good enough, the combination of idea and action will shake the world.

Perhaps one of the most rewarding things for me to do is to read stories about people who achieved business success. Every successful business came from a person, man or woman, with an idea that they would grow into a concept, and that concept was developed into a product or service, and that product or service created a business.

There are countless inspiring stories of how businesses were started and developed. Most of them are fascinating reads because they help to nurture in my mind the power of small business ideas, and how those ideas can effect the world.

One of my favorites is the story of Madam C J Walker. She was born in 1867 in the deep South, a time and place of extreme discrimination and disadvantage for African Americans and women. Both her parents were slaves, and of her five siblings, she was the first born free.

But her difficulties in life did not end there. Both of her parents died, and when she was only twenty years of age her husband also died, leaving her with a two year old daughter. She moved to another state to be with her brothers, and there began to develop an idea that had been spawned in her years before…

Madam C J Walker had married again, this time well into her thirties, when she began experimenting with a product to deal with hair loss and scalp issues common to women of the time. Eventually, fueled by her own passion and ideas, she developed several products of her own design and began travelling with her husband to sell them throughout the United States. Within a few years she had built a college to train hair culturists and even her own manufacturing facility to produce her products.

Madam C J Walker became the first self made woman millionaire, and this with multiple and substantial disadvantages. Her story is a testament not only to overcoming tremendous odds to achievement, but the power of an idea. Her small business ideas, bolstered by her own personal strength and ingenuity, blossomed into a massive benefit for millions of women of her time and beyond.

Most people have great ideas. Perhaps there is nothing more common than great ideas. The problem is not lack of ideas; it’s excuses people offer not to act on them.

The entire soft drink empire came from a single idea, formed into a recipe, and scratched onto a piece of paper and tucked away in someone’s pocket. And that idea would have remained a mere “idea” forever, had not someone took the chance and acted on it to see what would happen. They did, and the world is different for it.

To create a successful business, there must be an idea, but not just any idea. It has to be a unique, never thought-of or acted-on idea, one that fills a need or a desire of many people, and can be developed and produced and sold.

So how to approach small business ideas to bring them to fruition? Here are few questions that should be considered:

1. Is the idea new? If it already has been done, or is commonly known, it probably isn’t a novel idea worth pursuing, unless the idea is a completely new twist on an existing one, that would dramatically improve it.

2. Is the idea reasonable? Here goes the logical standard: an idea is only as good as it is reasonable or possible. Yes, it would be great to have a product that, say, makes the front lawn never grow higher than the desired length, while remaining green and healthy. But is this possible, or even practical? There are zillions of ideas out there and plenty of them get developed to a point but never see the light of day because they are not reasonable: the cost or hassle to produce them is far greater than the benefit.

3. Is the idea in my field of interest or knowledge? Most people are good at something and have a specific area of interest. To develop small business ideas effectively it stands to reason the developer should understand the product or at least have serious interest in it. A small business stemming from a person’s passion is the fastest and surest way to success.

To build the enterprise or business or organization that will change the world always starts with an idea. Then ideas are added to ideas with passion and determination and intelligence. And what results can be life changing, not only for the entrepreneur, but for people everywhere.

App Fog Genius Lessons From A Successful Entrepreneur

App Fog Business Startup Lessons from a Lucrative Entrepreneur

Lucas Carlson is a successful startup entrepreneur. When he first started however, he made a few bad choices that almost cost him big time.

Don’t Skip Business Setup Planning

At first he was just programming an idea for App Fog. He didn’t have a landing page, any bank account, brain storming ideas, or thinking about the ideal customers. Skipping key steps really put him back for years. He would program for weeks, and then finish the app idea. Then program for weeks and finish the idea. He couldn’t get people interested in the idea that was created.

Creating a Landing Page

Finally, he decided to create a landing page one night when he was too tired to sleep or even tell his wife about the programming idea. The app idea was PHP Fog. He tried putting it up on a site before that called Heroku.com. He registered the PHP Fog website and just simply wrote “it’s like Heroku for PHP”. Heroku’s site only allowed for Rudy on Rails applications so he couldn’t put the applications on that site.

Living the Dream

The next morning he woke up and had eight hundred people on his website! He didn’t market it anywhere else. All he did was put one link on Hacker News network. Also, he described the website in more depth. It turned out that the idea was a “hair on fire” idea without even the creation of the project! This gave him assurance that if the effort is put in, the results will be desired. After programming for two weeks. he just only had a prototype and the traffic went from 800 to 4,000 unique visitors per day!

Hair on Fire Problem Equals Confidence

He had identified a “hair on fire” problem. This gave him confidence to program the solution. This changed his life forever! He realized the difference between having a problem that people know they have versus the problems that people don’t know they have. PHP Fog wound up being AppFog. It raised $10 billion dollars and was later bought out.

No Marketing Expenses

He didn’t spend a dime on marketing! It wasn’t an accident. People already wanted the idea and were looking for it. He learned that he could find what people already wanted and then program an application based on what they wanted. He wasn’t taking a “shot in the dark” anymore.

Don’t be Intimidated

Creating a landing page or micro-website is very scary for most people. They don’t want to know if others like their great idea or not. There is a denial psychological part to this way of thinking. It can be self-defeating to the creation of an idea. They will think “Well I believe in the idea so much, that I don’t care what other people think about it”. This philosophy will kill a great idea. Put your “right foot first” and see what people need.
