The Internet Lifestyle.

I love the Internet! More specifically I love the ability to work at home and at the hours that I choose. And I actually really enjoy the process of Internet Marketing. The thrill of pinging a freshly posted blog, the satisfaction of hitting the top spot in your keyword,but we will get to that. Beware it's addictive! In my situation, I was living in a rural economically depressed area, unemployed, and expecting my third child. I had owned a Travel and Tour Company but had not been able bounce back from 9/11 and I really wanted to somehow be a stay- at- home Dad. The Internet already played a huge role in my life as it does in many households today. Mainly as a source of music, movies, information and of course e-mail. So I turned to Google for the answers and came across Global Travel International, a fully supported Home Travel Agency business with training and resources, complete with website. For the first time I realized the awesome potential of the Internet as a source of income. But it gets better, this plan to start a Internet home business provided financial freedom and the ability to work at home, on my schedule and to top it all off, in the field of my choice. Absolutely fantastic! I was a instant Internet Marketer. The possibilities are limitless, witch leads to one of the keys of a fulfilling life.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

You can be what ever you always dreamed of being. Job satisfaction is crucial to happy living, Making money at something you love makes it easy to get up in the morning. I wanted to stay in the Travel industry and I needed to work at home and be my own boss. I had stumbled on to a Internet Marketing secret, that there is a lot of money to be made in people's interests. I now know that to be Niche Marketing. You either are, or can become a expert in any industry. The Internet fosters networking and you can find chat rooms, forums, newsletters, blogs and information sites on just about any interest. This is the heart of the Internet Marketing world. The marketing strategies using online social groups like Myspace and Tagworld are fun and vibrant and "blogging" and "podcasting" are approaching cult status. I now have websites,blogs,newsletters and write articles on Golf, Travel, Luxury Living and Internet Marketing. I'm living my dream life! But, it didn't happen overnight. It has been quite the quest. Three things happened.

New(bie) Beginnings

It's a jungle out there! But in my search for a guide I found there was excellent online courses in exactly how to start and implement a Internet Home Business. I discovered SFI and the solid ground work was set to make money online. The second thing that changed my financial life, was attending a two day Internet Marketing Bootcamp by Derek Gehl of the Internet Marketing Center. And then low and behold, a marketer named Stone Evans came along with a system that tied it all together! The incredible Pluginprofitsite and his "30 Days To Success" system. By the time you get this far, you are making money from Adsense, writing articles, creating joint ventures etc. Basically practicing every solid Internet Marketing tactic needed. Good things come in Three's.

This is not a AD.

In conclusion I just want to say this is a very simple start but powerful. This is not a sales job, but a autobiography, a journal of how I gained independence, and did I mention that I love the Internet!

Baby Proofing The Home Office

The Internet Lifestyle Project
One of the great reasons to choose to work at home is to be more of a presence in your children’s lives. Now that two career families are a rule and not an exception, one parent’s ability to generate an income while in control of the home front is an asset. The Internet has brought us back home, as many profitable online home businesses spring up globally. But a great percent of these entrepreneurs now have a home office to add to the list of danger areas for the little ones.
As in the rest of the house, a good way to start a baby proofing is to get down on all fours and assess the area from that level. Seeing the room as your child does will give you your plan of attack. This height will contain most of your problem areas. Something as simple as emptying the wastebasket regularly, or installing or purchasing lockable desks and cabinets will save you grief.
Electricity is everywhere in an online home business office. Power bars exploding cords to your computer, your printer, scanner, fax, phone etc. This also brings hanging cords to all those devices and the possibility of them being pulled down. Plugging unused outlets is advisable as well as keeping cords neat and taped or tucked securely.
There is also the flip side of baby proofing. Protecting YOUR stuff. Backing up important data regularly on the computer is a good habit. The ability to lock the keyboard also saves random computer mishaps from roving fingers. This is also reason number two for lockable desks and cabinets, so that breakables can join the arsenal of scissors, staplers, punches, thumbtacks etc.
Good old- fashioned vigilance is still our best defence. Be honest about the amount of attention you can give and if that is sufficient supervision. Our children are worth getting help with if you need to give more focus to work on occasion. Simply locking the office when its not in use eliminates it as a worry in the family times.
The last tool is common sense. Ere on the side of caution. If it's precarious don’t tempt fate. The same rules apply in the home office as the rest of the house. Fasten shelves and bookcases to the wall and so on. So, happy home working and keep our children safe!
