Can you make money with teleseminars?

It is estimated that almost 8,000 people a day in the United States start an online home based business. They do so because they buy into the promise of fast and easy money, and yet, they really don’t know what it takes to make money on the Internet. Over 90% of these people will give up in a very short period of time.

It doesn’t have to be this way. I know you can make a living, and a great one at that, on the Internet. I have been doing so for years.

One of the best ways to make money on the Internet is with teleseminars. However, the majority of people who try their hand at teleseminars fail.

Your friends ain’t gonna pay your bills!

Not a day goes by that I don’t hear from someone who wants to build a successful on-line business. Some want to sell products while others want to market their services such as VA services.

Inevitably, the majority of people who start on-line with a huge dream soon trade their dream in for frustration.

The problem is, they try running their business for a little while, don’t make very much (if any) money and then get discouraged saying they need to go out and get a job. Aghhhhh.

WAIT!!!!! You can make this work. I should know. I make a great living from the Internet. But I also work at it. I don’t leave my success to chance, fate or the stars being in alignment. I have a plan.
