And HERE is the biggest secret on this page: You do not need 26 ideas that work. You don't need a thousand ideas that work. ALL YOU NEED IS ONE IDEA THAT YOU WILL WORK AT.
Here, let me prove that.
When I was a child, working at scum labor and barely keeping food in my own mouth, I worked at any job I heard of. Now, remember that I have a high IQ, and I work hard. Well, I'd been starving and going from riches to rags for a few weeks when I noticed this kid only 1/4 as bright as I was, but driving a decent truck. He would park and walk among the workers with some candy bars, sody pop, ice and the like, and I learned that he was making more than anyone out there, and he wasn't sweating all that much. He performed a needed service, Pennies at a time.
I met two brothers, average intelligence, ONE PRODUCT was making both of them rich. One product, less than 50 customers, and they traveled around the world three months out of the year. You'll have to step back 57 years to believe this, but the product was a simple one; cold water. Cold Water? I think people call it ice these days, but the Merritt Brothers sold a ton of it every hot day of the year, nine months out of the year, 50-60 years ago. The simple success formula still works.. Find ONE or more products that YOU will sell, and go to work.
My own earnings aren't that spectacular because I can't even give real diamonds away, but still, home is the only place I work so I know it can be done. Making GOOD money at home IS possible: I know it is because I do it.
I just barely made it through the 8th grade so I also know that little or no college is required. Over the years I have delivered real value for every penny I made. I have worked hard and my web site continues to become more valuable while countless others have slipped beneath the waves and disappeared.
This isn't a sales letter. "I can't sell nothing no way." Like I said, I can't even give real diamonds away -- and that is the LITERAL truth!
Instead, I am going to give you a list of the 26 service enterprises I entertained serious thoughts of creating when I sat down in January of 1997 to carve out my own living from home. One or more of them might be just the business opportunity for you to consider investigating.
But before you go -- Think about asking your current employer about working at home for LESS than you are earning now, as an independent contractor.
"What, are you crazy?"
Not at all. Look at this from your employer's side first. No more pay roll to prepare, no more matching social security, no more withholding funds to be responsible for, no more insurance to pay for. Plus, he will have someone s/he trusts to do the work. Naturally you will want your offer to include compensation for all this BUT, because s/he can now write EVERYTHING off as an expense that you charge him for it will be the RIGHT thing to do. Consequently s/he can pay you slightly more money and still be big money ahead. My daughter didn't think this idea would apply to the multi-billion dollar construction company she worked for. Consequently, she didn't ask them -- and then they asked her. Bear this in mind though, all 6 of my daughters ring the bell well inside the "genius" range. Nonetheless, she now works at home, and a multi-billion dollar company suggested it.
Now for your side. No more commute, no more $5 per gallon gas, no more lost time -- PLUS, you'll probably have at least two extra hours a day just from the commute savings. Besides that, you now have a client you can use for a reference to find more clients! So, chuck your fear aside and at least TRY to do the deal if the idea appeals to you.

Okay, here we go with the ideas...
- Hero Travel tour,, My idea was to create tours to places I wanted to go. Then I would go along on the tour and write about the people taking the tours with me. With their own pictures and stories about them I was going to create a personalized book for each of them to buy. Now this isn't as far out as it might seem. If you will, just for a moment imagine yourself a writer with the power, knowledge and insight of Dick Francis writing stories about the winning rider in the fifth race. Hoofs are pounding, clumps of mud slashes at your face but you see the opening ahead and lean forward, whispering (through the reins) that THIS is the time to move. Ah yes -- the winner of that fifth race will love the story more than s/he would a generic racing painting and would pay dearly for it.
- Take real estate that I bought for next to nothing and sell it with vividly descriptive videos enhanced with your words of praise and explanation was my second idea. Eventually this was the one I started to work on and I did right handsomely with it. When I got married my wife took one look at my numbers and joined the crowd. She did even better than I did.
- With An Instant Social Site you can have your own FaceBook empire. Install this easy-to-use software on an unlimited number of domains. So you can build a HUGE social network empire in no time! And you're only required to pay a low one-time fee. So don't miss out and check it out now: To Your Social Site Empire, Here's another deal that might be even better.. AND, maybe you don't want or need a high-powered money machine? Tag into my page of instructions for building your own web site and making money from it and watch for the simple membership site.
- Screen printing. You don't need your own equipment. Just contact a screen printer near you, or find an even cheaper one on the Internet. With this idea, your job is just to come up with the ideas and the market. For instance, I planned to do courthouse pictures with the name under them and the date, then sell these to stores along the freeway. After I got into the actual sales it turned out that little curios are just as easy to produce and the profits are larger.
- Make envelopes that are special for each area... Arkansas Fun envelopes, Lonoke White Water Rafting envelopes, etc. Also, witty sayings envelopes. One I made up this morning said: This warm, personal letter has been cleverly disguised as a bill.
- Word processing, typesetting. It is incredible to me that there are still people and businesses that need this service, but there are.
- Writing Assistance... "With your help Tonto, I can get my story told in a way that is powerful, ringing with truth and energy." How do you find customers? If people even suspect you can help them they will dig you out of the woodwork. My first problem was actually finding the nerve to charge people for doing this. Then my second problem was finding the courage to say NO when their numbers became overwhelming.
- Cookie celebrations. Instead of flowers send bouquets of cookies that make the heart smile and mouth water. Special cards that you write will be included.
- Pick up and delivery service, laundry, shoes, whatever customer wants picked up and delivered somewhere. Use written cards to prosper. Incredibly enough I happened to meet a man that took this idea and ran with it. One year after he started he was earning $15,000.00 per week and running himself ragged because, like me, he found it so hard to say NO.
- printing broker, printers earn up to $40,000 a year, brokers earn up to $150,000 My USP is: With my writing abilities, I can help buyers to improve their works. This was another idea I personally tried out and it quickly outgrew me. When I finally quit I had people driving forty and sixty miles to get me to do something for them.
- Graphic Design -- Mobile billboards. Find a sponsor, put a bill board on back of a truck and haul it through traffic during rush hour. It isn't that imaginative, and it doesn't pay much, but it does get attention.
- Photo inventory, VHS inventory. I know people who do this and they make a good living at it.
- Event Planning How strange. There are actually people (with money) who can't plan an event.
- videotaping service
- photography. Almost anything you write can be enhanced in someway by photography skills.
- cell phone Vacation Guide. If you know your Region well enough to guide people to its best attractions by cell phone you're in. People are doing this by iPods now, but back in 1997 it was a strange idea.
- Promote a business, everywhere, ask for a share of the profits. I have done this one numerous times and now -- with social Networking -- it is easier than ever. One business contacted me and offered me 50% of the profits. It was already producing a small stream of income to start with. I came up with a new name and told some newbie salesmen what to say.
- Custom Photo birth, wedding announcement cards
- Public Relations Agency, this requires special talents -- that were already mine.
- Resume counseling. I knew I could do the work, but selling the service was beyond me. If you too are shy, you will need to find a partner with sales ability.
- Sign making service; boy do business people ever need help -- not with the painting -- with getting just a few words right! When people see their business going under they get desperate. Some of them get so desperate they will even listen to common sense. That's where you come in. The field is white already to harvest since 95% of the businesses alive right now are in the process of dying. Only 5% can hang on more than 2 years. Most of them fail in the first 6 months. How do you find these desperate customers? All I did was stop in at the local County Courthouse and ask for a list of recently launched business. Some states publish lists of new businesses for the entire state, and there used to be newspapers that published those lists. Ask your local library how they find lists like this.
- Write articles for local businesses that will get them FREE exposure in your area papers and stations. My secret weapon is PLR that I get for free and rewrite under THEIR NAME. Legal? You bet. 100% legal.
- You can be a Disability Specialist , and use your writing skills to get applicants enrolled on disability. Surprisingly enough, the hardest part of this work is keeping the applicant from fainting by the wayside. Some of the people I met were such hopeless hannahs that they needed to be on disability just for psychiatric reasons.
- Start Your Own Information Web hub. If you can come up with a new idea, a new name, or slant you could be in for a moneymaking ride.
- Seminar promoting.. do this for businesses -- in house.. bring the experts to them that they need. My idea was to call businesses and find out what they needed, then find the experts that could perform the deed for less than I had contracted for. Since I have a natural knack for getting in to see the decision makers I would probably have done quite well with this one too. One company I'm working with now pays me $4,000.00 per sign up. Incredible, isn't it? Take a look at the pretty blue ad below this line for your own first class freebee.

REAL Sales Letters
There is absolutely nothing that will put more money into your pockets than the ability to SELL product. By studying the million dollar sales letters successful businesses are using TODAY. you can plot a new course in life. Once you see how to create the magic the money can start rolling your way like an avalanche.
So many people want to work at home, but they sit down at the table or in front of their computer with the wrong attitude. On their goals sheet they write out: "I want $3,000.00 a week and I don't want to lift a finger, or invest a cent to do it."
Let's follow that thought for a moment and make an application at the world's richest employer.. Wal*Mart. If anybody can pay you that well, they can. After filling out your papers and passing their physical exam you hand them your salary demands.. "I want to earn $3,000.00 a week and I don't want to lift a finger, or invest a cent to do it."
If you squint real hard you can probably imagine
what the company interviewer will tell you.
So, I won't bother to say it here.

Now, the last half of the book does tell you some good ways to make money with your efforts. Download this book for that reason only.
