Home Based Business Online
What is a Home Based Business?
A home based business is a business that you conduct from home. You are your own boss. You are in control of your finances and bookkeeping. Working at home does not mean getting up early in the morning to commute to a job that you may not be very crazy about and let us not even think about the cost of gas to get there!
Being involved with my own home business off and on for years while working outside of the home has not been easy, and do not kid yourself that it is. I first started out selling gifts from catalogs. I spent a fortune on snail mailing the catalogs out with my business name and matching envelopes, hoping to bring in a flood of orders. Set up booths with merchandise I paid for, hoping to make a sell.
Then there were those home parties. Egad, how I hate to see those invitations from family and friends. Just to think I did that to with cosmetics and Christmas Around the World.
This was all to supplement my primary income.

Beware of Online Scams
Not all business ventures are legit. Do your homework. Read up on it. If they want a large amount on upfront money, chances are it is a scam.
Most of us set up a home business to give ourselves the flexibility of our hours and spending more time with family. The desire to be your own boss and not work for anyone else but yourself is a dream that most of us want to achieve.
Now with the internet it is so much easier to achieve that dream. Little or no overhead, networking at your fingertips and so many different business ventures to look into...financial security is easier to grasp.

Gary Anderson has expressed his political and economic views & facts to support his concerns about the financial systems. The government and corruption of political parties are shared in online books.
Format and Create eBooks
4. Work for a client and create covers for eBooks. Format their eBooks for places like Smashwords, Lulu and Kindle. Format these for yourself or the client for the printed book like CreateSpace. Or make an audio book. ( I have helped with either the cover or formatting or both. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for service.)
Be aware of what social networking sites will accept. Many will not take the marketing of Clickbank and MLM products. Many eBooks have been given a bad name. Kindle and other eBooks like this are acceptable and there are many well worth the buy. Like the few shown on here from Amazon.
Smashwords eBook Novel
Books Worth Reading
These eBooks on Smashwords have several different formats for you to choose from to download. This is what makes Smashwords stand out above the rest. Since I have formatted these two books, I do know that they are worth reading.

About Amazon Capsules and Mouse Pads
With the capsules it is a 60/40 with HubPages. Meaning 60% of the time the sale will go into your account and 40% of the time it is linked to the Hubpages account. But if you want to guarantee 100% would come to you if it is clicked on and sold, then you can add a photo of it and a link. Often it is good to have a mix of both. At least the link will show up when someone has the Ad Blocker enabled.
