Ok, you’ve decided to start making money online… you dip your toe in somewhere…you spend money on one course or another, maybe alot of money,… you try some things, spend more money, and maybe you make some money and maybe – at best – you break even.
Or maybe it’s worse. You’re in the negative.
You have decided (maybe for the 1000th time) to quit.
Can someone who is as frustrated as all “get out” actually make money… or are you – as your family members and friends may suggest – really just a fool for ever thinking things could “change”?
That’s a good question. Maybe you ARE nuts…
(That was encouraging wasn’t it!)
Or might it be that just when you’re ready to quit, you may be closer to success than you possibly think.
Here’s a blog conversation with a former cardiac rehab tech and former stonemason who now earn their livings online.
They started growing their business and it grew so explosively that they couldn’t get the business resources they needed to run their business where they lived!
They had to move from Canada to Texas to keep growing their web based business!
Could what they say help you if you feel like quitting right now?

Editor’s Note: Many of our readers are stay and home or work at home parents and saving money is as much of interest as making it. This may help you do just that! Please direct all questions to the site… I don’t know anything about baby formula!
Today I’m going to show you how I managed to save $10 a month on baby formula simply by taking advantage of these printable formula coupons I found online. Recently I began collecting printable coupons for groceries including toilet paper, detergents and even my favourite brand of coffee. However I just discovered last month that there are also coupons available for baby formulas including Similac, Gerber and Enfamil formula.
I first discovered formula coupons and rebates after talking to a friend of mine who told me she used to print them off all the time when she was raising her youngest girl. So I went to Google and searched for Enfamil coupons and to my surprise I got over one million hits! Unfortunately this didn’t end up to be as easy as I had hoped because 99% of these results are blog posts about old or expired coupons. For weeks I was frustrated scanning over expired baby formula coupons only to find more and more expired ones!
Each time I thought I had found one it would turn out the coupon was expired! Thats until I found a neat search tool in googles advance search bar. Here you can narrow your searches down depending on certain criteria. For me I told Google to only give me new results over the past two weeks. This effectively cuts out all the old or expired formula coupons I would spend hours sorting over!
One of the first results I came across was this Facebook fan page for Gerber coupons. There are over 200 fans there and many of them share the coupons they’ve found on the wall making it very easy to network with other moms. I found it to be a fantastic place to network and save money!
One last thing you should be aware of is that Similac often mails out $10 or even $15 cheques in the mail to it’s fans. To receive these cheques you need to subscribe to their newsletter. The monthly newsletter is actually pretty good – it’s full of parenting tips and tricks and usually includes free samples and coupons. These Similac cheques are basically the same as a coupon and can be used toward the purchase of any Similac product unlike the Similac coupons that are generally just for a particular product. There are also many forums online where moms trade the baby formula coupons or cheques they have for other brands such as Gerber, Similac and Enfamil.
Well I hope this article helps you save some money off your next purchase of baby formula online or at your local store. If you have any more questions visit our contact us page at http://formulacouponsite.com/contact-me

Editor’s note: While many work at home folks use tablets to conduct business, as the business grows, such tablets, including the Windows Tablet may not be what is needed for professional IT purposes or teleworking.
Tablets have become a popular and novel idea for home users. However, there are numerous issues that preclude Windows tablets from being suitable for office networks. Aside from the many general usage problems, there are also serious security breach vulnerabilities to consider. This is why IT Support Los Angeles firms should be consulted about selecting the best equipment for office network environments.
For starters, mobile devices have posed a serious threat to business operations since they became so prevalent. Depending upon the level of authority a user has, he or she can have the power to wipe out data, as well as compromise an entire network with viruses and malware.
Whenever devices are used in outside networks and then connected to internal business systems, the potential for harm to the business infrastructure is far greater than many people realize. This is one of the main reasons that IT support firms would not recommend using tablets in a business environment.
The Intel based tablet runs on Metro (Windows RT) and traditional Windows 7 interfaces (Desktop). From experience,IT support Los Angeles firms note that these two environments do not interact well together. They require users to change gears with every switch between them. This would be detrimental and counter productive in the work environment, as staff will spend more time as a result.
Windows 8′s design (Windows 7 Desktop) is extremely unreadable and unaffected by settings for Metro UI. Again, this kind of situation lends itself to lower productivity and more room for error in general. IT support professionals have also noted that menu items, as well as ribbon bar options, are very difficult to touch accurately, due to their close proximity and tiny size.
As in Windows Vista, options are scattered all through the two operating systems. This makes system configuration very complex. IT support firms understand that Androids and iPads need a universal settings app, which Windows 8 does not have.
The above are just some of many reasons that IT Support Los Angeles professionals should be consulted to determine what the best device options are for your business network, to safeguard it as much as possible.
How to make money with Fiverr.com is becoming a HOT topic!
Fiverr.com wants you to get in on the money making because the more YOU sell,the more they make obviously!
So they’re highlighting Chris Hardy whose made thousands of dollars with his “gigs” on Fiverr.com
Here’s what Chris had to say:
How did you get started?
I was listening to the Clark Howard radio show and he mentioned something about Fiverr. I was curious, so I checked it out and thought it was fascinating. I started thinking, “What can I do for $5?” It took me awhile to come up with the gigs I’ve got, but once I came up with them, I thought, “This is great!” By December of 2011, it was almost like a part-time job for me.
What do you think made people buy what you were selling?
My first one was, “I will speak your message in a cartoon voice of your choosing.” It’s a personalized thing and pretty unique, and something people can use. Literally two weeks after putting up a gig on Fiverr, the Fiverr people featured it, and I got a lot more gigs. The second most-popular one is my standard voice over. I didn’t lift a finger to promote my gigs—it helped that I was featured by Fiverr.
The rest, as the article says, is “history”. It’s like a part time job and he does what he loves and has ways to upsell his gigs for an additional $50!

You may know comedian, Jerry Seinfeld, as a comic genius, but did you also know he was a productivity expert too?
One such productivity tool he used was a calendar where he marked a big red X over any day that he spent time writing jokes. If he went the entire day without writing a joke, that day wouldn’t get a red X.
This simple tool can be tremendously effective! Here’s what Jerry said in his own words…
“After a few days you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain.”
This “Seinfeld Calendar” lends itself perfectly for many different goals you may be working on. You can make a calendar to write content for your website everyday. Or, if you are trying to get fit, you can make one for attempting to exercise every day.
The key point behind this is you don’t have to do a lot everyday. Remember, the SiteSell mascot is a tortoise because “slow and steady wins the race.” A little bit of effort, each and every day, can add up to a TON over the course over 1, 2, even 5 years. Just imagine what you could accomplish!
I found this site which offers a simple and easy way to print off a Seinfeld Calendar…
Try printing off one today, get the momentum going, and once you start don’t break the chain!
Like this if you’re going to give this a try, and comment if you think this is a cool idea!
I’m going to give you the link in a moment to a recent article on “9 legitimate deductions for your home business”.
They are, indeed, legitimate but some (the perennial “home office deduction”) can trigger audits and end up being more trouble than they’re worth in the long run.
It is interesting that, in some cases, when used for business purposes even your Netflix can be deductible. Of course by then, you’re too sick of it to use it for enjoyment!

“Couponing” is all the rage these days… why pay full price when you can search online for a discount or promotional code?
And why use a search engine to find old, outdated codes when you can look for those discount vouchers in one, convenient location for UK consumers.

There are literally HUNDREDS of discounts available… free iphones, free delivery of products, and even hotels and restaurants up to 95% off!
Do you enjoy seeing bargains from Groupon? Don’t worry, they’re listed here too. If you missed a good one in your email, it’s possible to find it listed here as well.

Can you really make money online by posting on “Free Classified” sites?
Well, yes and no.
What first comes to mind is Craigslist. I have made money there but it’s increasingly a pain.
The best money I ever made on that site was marketing cell phone activations… It was before the days of iPhone and Android and popular phones like the Razr could be obtained for free with new account activation!
Unfortunately my free deal was confused with some “Lottery” type ads where people MIGHT get a free first generation iphone if they signed up for a bunch of junk.
So the flagging idiots who populate Craigslist flagged my legitimate ad with the trash ad! But even then I still made money!
Nowadays if you’re selling something on Craigslist, posting locally to your local site, going through phone verification, not breaking any of their ever changing rules, and not getting flagged by people who seem to have nothing else to do but flag even legitimate ads, then possibly yes, it still works great. Otherwise plan to learn alot of monkey business to make money. It just makes my head hurt thinking about it!
I know some folks who have actually started their own business by posting on USFreeAds.com. But here’s the kicker… they did it not because people actually visited that ad site like they do Craigslist, but because for certain niches for “Long Tail Keywords” USFreeAds.com ranked very well on Google!
Still, they started a good business and actually “quit their day job”.
But still, that’s not exactly what I was looking for…
Backpage seems to offer an option that has a good bit of traffic, a “bus opp” section for our ads, and not the pain to deal with that Craigslist has become.
As I’ve been scouting around the options there, backpage offers some of the “Google Juice” Craigslist and USFreeAds.com do (i.e. quick listing on the search engine) but also REAL PEOPLE CHECKING OUT ADS by visiting the site directly.
One way to “dip your toe” into Backpage advertising is to try it yourself and create an account.
Another way is to go to Fiverr.com and hire someone to post for you on the site.
But if you really want to know what you’re doing, the expert on the subject from what I’ve been able to find – expert in the sense of “really doing it” and “making money on a regular basis” is Yuwanda Black.
She started using the site in 2009 and still uses it daily to make revenue in addition to her freelance writing work. In fact, that’s how she started… to earn income when the writing jobs weren’t paying all the bills.
Since 2009 as BackPage has changed, she’s updated her ebook to reflect those changes. She originally went from posting her own ads, to using software to hiring out an “Virtual Assistant” to use the software!
While she, of course, touted the time she made “$900 in one day”, her goal was always just to make a steady income and those “big hit days” are more common but few and far between even for her when selling small ticket items on Backpage.
Based on her experience, and with her, I’m going to say that there’s still a decent likelihood of earning revenue from free classified sites. But – also with her – I’d say there’s lots of testing involved and there has to be the “right mix” of hot product and good ad writing.
Most won’t be patient enough to follow through in my experience.
