The Extra Income Checks
Do you have the characteristics to make EXTRA INCOME?
It takes certain attributes to run a successful
extra income program. You must ask yourself if you
are cut out for it. No GURU can do it for you.
You have to want it badly enough and then go out
and get it.
Tens of thousands of people all across the globe
come to the internet looking for a way to make extra
income. It has become necessary to issue some
The truth of the matter is that some people are
better off getting a second job at the local
convenience store to supplement their income than
start an extra income program. It doesn’t do them
any good to spend money and months on the internet
trying to earn extra income only to fail. At the end
of it, they would only be poorer for their efforts.
I don’t want you to waste your money on something you
may not be suited for. You need to look within yourself
and ask yourself if you can do it.
The reality is that the cost of living keeps going
up while companies keep cutting back on raises. The
need to do something extra and earn enough money
to help pay the bills has never been greater. It
doesn’t matter if you are a woman or man.
The computer and the internet have made it possible
for people to match their skills, interests, abilities,
and ingenuity into a home business they can use to
earn extra income. This article is to show you that
it's simple and easy to join the ranks of successful
extra income earners. But make no mistake about it,
it’s not for everybody.
The history of business shows that the rewards and
advantages of starting a business are many. The
beauty is that you can start an extra income business
in your garage, backyard, basement, attic, or a room
in your home. But first, you must do some GUT CHECKS.
Your first step should be to study the attributes
below and see if you have them. You should be frank
and honest when you do.
1. CAN YOU SET GOAL?:
If you are to achieve any level of success, you
must set goals. If you expect to be successful,
you must determine what that means to you and the best
way to achieve it. There are two basic steps you can
take to convert goals into achievements:
a) You can decide on a specific dollar amount;
and b) You can set a time frame for obtaining the
dollar amount you want. Your goal should be specific
and indicate What, When, and Where. After making a
list of every possible way you may accomplish a
goal, select the method for your situation.
2. QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF:
a) "Can my family do without the money I need to
start an extra income program?" In the world of the
internet, this amount is very small. In fact,
there are programs, like the
which come loaded with all you need to start for
All you have to do is advertise. Can your family
do without the money you need to advertise? This
question must be answered according to each
individual's circumstances. You may need to trim a
few things from the family budget.
b) "What are my strengths?" To determine your
strengths you will have to take an inventory of
yourself. Decide what you enjoy doing the most and
what you feel you would be good at. Examine every
possibility and include all the skills you have no
matter how small they seem.
There is no harm in brushing up on the things you
are lacking. Local community colleges have courses
that help you do this at very small price. There
are also a lot of free online resources you can read
to gain more knowledge. All you have to do is go to
a search engine like Google and do a search on your
topic of interest.
c) "Is there a market for the product or program
I have chosen?" Be cautious before you invest any
money. Check it out by making inquiries directly
to the company, competitors, or firms who are
marketing a product or program similar to the one
you are interested in. Test it on a small scale and
track your testing. Check it out thoroughly.
d) "How long will it take this business to reach
the financial goal I must have?" You should know
how much time you can dedicate to your business,
and what your profits are for that time. From there,
a simple math will tell you how long it might take
to reach a particular financial goal.
3. HAVE COURAGE TO START:
You must have the courage to start. Don’t be
caught in analysis paralysis. Some people spend too
much time analyzing opportunity that they never
start. Don’t fall into this trap. You MUST have
the courage to start.
4. SELECT THE RIGHT PRODUCT OR PROGRAM:
Take a close look at your interests and abilities,
and then decide what type of program or product you
want to do. For example, do you want to do referral
programs, or write e-books to sell? The object is
to find out what has the most appeal. If it does
not appeal to you, you will not be motivated enough
to see it through.
5. HAVE A GOOD MARKETING PLAN:
A good marketing plan is one part of a business plan
that is absolutely essential to its success. In fact,
the ability to properly market a program can be more
important than the program itself. You want targeted
marketing. You have to reach the right audience in
your marketing efforts.
Go to discussion forums in your niche and see what
others are doing. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
Experience is the best teacher. With good program or
product, you should be able to develop a winning
Be a self-motivator and continue moving forward
towards the goals you want and deserve. Keep educating
yourself in your area of interest. The best extra
income earners never stop educating themselves because
there is always something to learn.
If you have or develop the above attributes, your
little extra income program or business could turn
into your main income program or business. You will
be smiling all the way to the bank with some nice
checks and thanking yourself for having the GUTS
needed to accomplish your goal.
