    Nice list. I love lists.

    What an amazing market place the Internet is. It provides a great opportunity for those who need to or choose to work from home. I chose affiliate marketing as my business and Internet marketing as my niche. That is, I teach about and promote products that relate to Internet marketing.

    There are so many out there that want to learn how to make money online and it is very sad that many give up because the learning curve is too steep because they get led up the garden path.

    It brings a lot of satisfaction to point someone in the right direction and of course make a buck out of it at the same time.

    Voted up.
