Can You Generate An Income From Using Just A Laptop and a Webcam?

Online businesses have always fascinated me, some are so incredibly simple and easy to start that you cannot help but think that they simply couldn’t work…. but they often do. I am sure that I don’t need to ask if you know what a webcam is do I? For those of you who are unsure, a webcam is just a camera allowing you to record yourself for videos or to do live face to face conversations. Basically all laptops have a camera built into them as standard. These used to be pretty basic but they worked – today they...

Nick Spalding: Successfully Using Amazon To Build A Self Publishing Business

If like me you have thought about becoming a published author and stay at home writer then today’s post should definitely interest you. Last night I watched a documentary on BBC2 called Business Bloomers about the story of Amazon.com from its birth in a Seattle garage to the multi-billion dollar business it is now. It followed Amazon with every high and low including the 98% drop in shares which lead to people being made redundant to the success of its Kindle and how it changed the way we interact with books. It also interview people here in the UK...

Is Happiness The True Factor Of Success?

Today’s post is an extract from a book I am currently writing and I wanted to share some of the content here with you. Working at something new that is yet to be profitable can get very hard when the hours turn to days and the days turn to weeks and those weeks drag into months. The longer you go without money can really make life desperate and very hard. It is at that point when motivation starts to wean and a mixture of apathy and procrastination kicks in so today I am going to discuss a few methods...
