   As a baby boomer, over the course of my career, I have had the benefit of doing many different activities, learning different skills....whether it was from working, traveling or hobbies. And I am now turning some of them into a way to make extra income. Many of you have at least one skill or expertise ( you make not even have thought about this) that you have done on the side (hobbies, interests, arts & crafts, sports, music, etc.,). Maybe something you have done from being employed for many years. And you have always had a passion for a particular segment of that jobs. This can be your niche. 

LOOK...just start a blog about it!

   Provide quality and unique content about this passion or interest, the traffic will come and your blog visits will start to grow. With the help of some very simply internet marketing strategies, one person connect with two people, those people tell two more and so on and so........!

   How can you make money from blogs? Once you have built a following with interesting & quality content. Your visitors will see that you have a product (arts & crafts, maybe an E-book on your expertise or service) you can provide them.

You can also add these income generating strategies like

   As a single parent father of my 8yr old son, it is essential that I'm in his life as much as possible. With a home based online business or Internet marketing, this can be accomplished. With all the hype & different paths to take, it is easy to get turn around, thereby losing interest in the direction one want to head.

ENTREPRENEUR -- One who organizes, manages, and assumes the                                 RISK of a business or enterprise.

    If  network marketing or home-based business isn't an entrepreneur, I don't know what is.

Please read the definition once again......organizes, manages & assumes the risk.

   Every business offers an reasonable amount of risk.  Whether it be traditional or a home based business one has to assume the responsibility to run it as a business.

   Internet marketing or Home-based business are risky, and even though they may not be classified as a franchise (in the business sense) they are micro-franchise (in the business sense).

   Despite those that have fail, those that have a negative ideology about MLM, network marketing and the such......People are making an income.

   Some make a little, some make a moderate amount, some make a part-time income, some make a full-time income and some even become wealthy at this.

   Where one ends up at, is that persons individual responsibility to organize, manage & assume the risk as a business person.

   If a person had a million dollar, an opened up a traditional business, it could very well be an different outcome for the one that has a solid background in business to that of someone with no business back-ground, to that even of one that is inexperienced, but learns to operate that business.

   All day long we could go back & forward on the pros & cons of MLM and the such. But true ENTREPRENEURS will be entrepreneurs  win or lose.

   Now as for me, I do this not to get wealthy.... that's the end benefit, I do this to be in my sons life.

   As an entrepreneur, i'm assuming a responsibility to provide not only an income, but the opportunity to be in his life as much as humanly possible. While also providing my clients & business the necessary attention needed for continued growth.

*NOTE* When Michael Jackson passed away many of us baby-boomer stepped back to reevaluate our life's mission.

   God forbid , I pass anytime soon, But I will live my life everyday being & doing something for my child, because HE (GOD) could very well one day call for me. And everyday that I show my son something new whether its is learning, doing or reinforcing the positive elements of this life is another GREAT DAY.

As a side note:

   I has run or been apart of several traditional business ventures:

   I've also been in sales, the military & for almost a decade in law-enforcement. This included: running a record & clothing store, a music production/record label & a mobile DJ business ( if it wasn't for my son age, this is pretty much what I would be doing now, (the DJ Biz). 

   I chose this path because of the benefits (including the financial) that I feel fit for my lifestyle. I love the challenge, the people I meet but more so, I assume the responsibility & risks that come with MLM, Internet marketing, Home-based business or Network marketing.

   And that includes the responsibility to educate, inform & assist those that WANT to improve their knowledge in this industry so as to have a greater success.

It is OUR be an Entrepreneur.

Free Personal Development Books - These Personal Development Books are all completely free - subjects include Success, Goal-Setting, Law of Attraction, NLP & Life Purpose!

"2013 Update" -  Above linked e-books offers are live & accessible. Video is outdated and should be untended.

   In any venture that one wants to endure. The first step is the conception

   The ideas or dreams of what WE want to do, where we want to be, who we can to become. All have started with a thought. Turning thoughts into reality becomes the biggest obstacle for most of us in our lifetime.

   There will always be a reason not to, let say, go after this conception, this dream or goal...... "I can't do this" - "I have others things to do" or  even "Others don't believe in me!" But, what's really keeps us from achieving our full potential is our faith in ourselves!

   Over the centuries, men & women have stepped out of their comfort zone. To go against the grain, to do what was believed to be un-achievable. And found that their faith & passion propelled them to levels, even they themselves thought unattainable.

   As we get older, as we become mature. We tend to become more conservative in our actions. Indeed this is what maturity represents.....think before you act!  But, in the same breath we also lose our willingness to dream.

   As children, our minds are filled with imagination and wonder......they (WE) wanted to be Presidents, firemen, pilots race car driver etc., and as children we wanted to do all of it.

Maturity, says that we obviously can't do or be all of these things.

   You have to ask yourself, even tell yourself  "Why,  can't I do at least something now......that my childhood heart once believe in?  How close to it can I achieve it in my lifetime. 

   (I have 3 children, 2 are grown adults. My oldest Son , I watched him at about the age 7. perform hands on electronic assembly - One time, he took one of his sister's talking dolls and connected it to one of those singing Hallmark cards. Daughter wasn't to happy. But it was not only funny but a gleams into his natural ability. He would build car audio systems in his teens. My goodness, the mess of electronic components in his room, LOl.  As an adults he works as a cable, internet & E.S.T. electronic systems technician. 

   I watched my only daughter, as a little girl, line up her dolls and play school/teacher with them. Attend college to major as an business accountant. Graduate, work in her field, only to leave it and go back to school to become a teacher. Yes, she is a teacher! 

  She went back to school for more degrees so she could not only teacher at a school where she wanted  - there were (2) One being because it's would be where my grandchildren would be going. This coming school year, she will be teaching at the school my grandkids will attend.)

   What will it take to really set the stage......what little strategies or short term goals will it take to forward one step closer to our bigger picture?


   When you really want & believe in something good, you can achieve them.  Sometimes the down side is, we lose the security of our comfort zone. The lose of something, the comfort that we are use to or what will I have to give up?

   We are, in today’s society giving so much more than what we really need to survive. 

   Technology, its grand. But, unless we can better understanding that sometimes, in order to achieve any dream or goal - there will be sacrifices, loss! An effort is necessary on our human emotional side. 

   To NOT take a risk at something we have a passion for, only limits ourself to our true ability. Our true calling. This is where believing in your ability. Having real faith.....that Good overcomes the bad. That with failures, setbacks or even hard-times it will bring lessons to be learned. 

   Look .....Knowledge stems from doing, learning & attempting things challenging to our comfort circle of life. In doing so, you simply grow! Success, failure, ups, downs, fast or slow becomes lessons learned and wisdom fostered. 

   Doing things that are for the good & wellbeing of others may have their tribulations & struggles , but believing in yourself while having a strong faith, and you will prevail.

Believe in something or you will fall for anything!

Important tips to consider when designing your website or blog......

   There is just one particular concept that one has to keep in mind when designing or even while revising (adding content, information, etc.,)your website. You want your site to be picked up by the search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo, MSN) no matter what type of website you design. This can be free traffic (visitors) to your site if it is optimized correctly. I can not stress this enough, if no one knows your site is on the web, and then no one can visit you on the web!

   The only traffic that you will get will be the traffic that you have directly link to it, say from blogs, or social networking sites. Less traffic means less chance people will see your information.(content). If you are selling anything, well then no one can buy from you! And believe me, when consumers are ready to spend their hard earn money, they will find a place to spend it.

   Hopefully, by this point, you know exactly what your websites theme will be about. This is now the time to focus on a niche within your theme. For example, let's say your site will be about Cars. The niche will be where you narrow down a particular segment about cars. Will it be about Classic cars, race cars maybe it will focus only on American made cars. Will you be providing information about the care of automobiles, engine maintenance, maybe after-market products? Whatever the case may be, you want to define or target a group or groups within that theme and this will become your niche market, your target market.

                Once you have done this, start writing content about this, I say, start writing now, because out of this writings, 3 more important elements will emerge, that will boost your rankings in the search engine (Google) algorithm.

·                     Keywords,

·                     Keyword phrases

·                     Description tags.

   You will take certain words and phrases from your writing that will make up your keywords & description tags. And from this point on, you want to design and write content relevant to these tags & keywords. But just as equal important, is to include a keyword into the address of your website (keep it short & easy to remember) and the title of your page. 

   Example: we are putting together a site aimed at after-market products for classic cars. We may want to address our page something close to -- or Your title should also include keywords that will be use on your page -- "Where to buy after-market products for your Classic cars".

As you can see, there are certain words being used that people will put into a search engine box.  Thereby, assisting the search engine to find your site! There are a number of free online tools, such as Google Keyword tool, that can help select the best search terms for your site. Remember that your website will serve as your main online presence and the main hub or redirecting point for all of your online promotional efforts. Your website should be distinctive, easy to navigate, and full of useful information. Many studies show that adding videos to a website increases traffic and time visitors stay on your site, look to add video that are relevant and useful to your target audience. You should become familiar with the use of basic Html code. This is the primary website design language.

    Keep in mind that thousands of others are doing the same thing.....wanting to make money online!
 Finding ways to be unique will take creativity, constant revisions & updates. You will have to use blogs, articles & press releases to attract (links) consumers to your website while building connections and this is just a part of the overall strategy use to boost your online presence. Visit as I continue to provide insight & tips that will strengthens the foundation of your online endeavors.
It's Your Home based business...... (SET YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS!)

What you can do when your find yourself out of your main source of income?

 Andrew D Hayes, Basic Author
   As a single parent, life will surely test your will. With the all the activities surrounding school alone, this can become an daunting task. Trying to find time to be in your child’s life, while balancing work, furthering your own education or even some personal time while still pursuing your entrepreneur goals can become over bearing to say the least. 24hrs, in today’s fast paced society is simply not enough to truly complete all the days’ tasks. To bad there isn't a business plan for the families on the go, a family plan. LOL!

   However, with that thought, that’s exactly what single parents as well as two parent families need to incorporate into their daily lives. A family plan, just like a business plan. One should at the very least write down all tasks, appointments, who does what & when it is to be done. This can give yourself the foundation, a base to focus on the important issue that needs to be accomplished for that day. Not that life still won't be trying, but with a daily plan written down, this can give you a sense of organization, thereby affording you the insight to make adjustments as your time warrants.

   My personal struggle came in the form of proper child care for my 8yr old son. If I go to work early, I needed someone to get him to school, But, still needing to provide after-school care till I'm off work. Going to work later in the mornings allow me to get him to school but left me working later, which threw for most families who would care for my child, out of sync with their plans. Throw in over-time or a family that needs to be else where that evening. And I'm jeopardizing my job & not being productive in my teams’ process. To juggle 3-5 different caretakers and still miss days of work......well decisions had to be made.

   As a person who strongly believe in faith & that everything happens for a reason,. My foresight to be my own boss, to work from home, was put into place for a reason. I've learnt, worked hard over the last few years to build an environment that I could control. 

   Unfortunately & fortunately the time came where a decision on the direction I needed to go has now brought me home to work. I can't say that it’s the idea time but when would be the perfect time when your child’s well-being is at stake. My faith ensures me that I am not giving anything I can't handle. The work/studies that I put into my business over the course of these few years will surely test my wits. As I now focus on a positive outcome of recent decisions, I know that this is for a reason, that there is a bigger picture that will be painted. And the future is my canvass and I am the paint brush! Wish me well.

   So, what do you do,when you suddenly find yourself without your main source of income. I started my online business years ago so I could prepare myself for something like this. So I'm a bit ahead of the game. but I still need to supplement that income in order to stay are some suggestions.

Working from Home doesn't just mean working online......!

   A side note to these that even though I account for my own income now! Working from home as a single parent doesn't limit ones self to just working in the home. Entrepreneurs can also exercise they talents doing odd jobs that will fit into their schedule. This can help ease the burden of a lose of your main income source till finances build with your online endeavor. Everyone has at least one other skill that can be utilized to generate some income.

Internet Marketing as a Home based business - Can U win?

   It's seems that everybody is offering some type of opportunity these days. Turn here, turn there, everywhere there is a money making business. Everyone is, to my guess is somewhat successful, from the way it sounds. But sadly, the reality is most will quit before they ever see a return on their investment.

   If you understand & have a passion for this industry, you have leap over a tall barrier! Do understand, that for the serious entrepreneur, one knows that this is not going to get you rich or wealthy overnight nor even next week, let alone this month. It is an on-going event that requires constant attention, building, improvement topped with plenty of patients.

   See working online is not just about making money. It's about building relationships, its about building that foundation. One also has to have the knowledge of managing that cash-flow, to be able to create wealth. The secret of all financially successful people is simply that they are organized and do not waste time. Think about it. Review your own activities, and then see if you can't find a couple of extra hours in each day for more constructive accomplishments.

  At, Wealth Health using internet technology, is established just for that reason. Getting more done with the little time available in our fast paced world. As, a single parent father of my & 7yr. old. 24 hrs. just doesn't seem to be enough nowadays. But this is the real reason I'm building an online business. Work from home and building my wealth. So that I can bond & be as great of a parent as I can possibly be.

You will have to be motivated, plain & simple! Motivation & having a real solid commitment will keep you pushing onward when times seems slow, when the work you're doing doesn't seem to be productive.

   Because in this industry especially as you are starting out, you will do a lot of work now (up front) that may seem like you are not accomplishing anything but in fact you really are just one more step closer in a long list of task that HAS to be performed, so that later on with the latest internet technology your business can become more automated.

There are over one & half billion internet user worldwide as of 2009!

   Why do hundreds of thousands of individual from around the world, participate in this type of work each month? And, why is the number of home-based opportunities steadily growing. In fact, did you know that over 50% of small business owners work from home. The home business industry is expanding continuously and researcher suggests that revenue generated from internet businesses will increase by 15% - 19% yearly through the year 2010.

   Hope you find some useful information, please feel free to interact, ask questions, leave comments on the varies topics there.

First 3 steps: Essential to starting your own Home based Internet business

Andrew D Hayes, Basic Author

1st. 3 steps: Essential to starting your own Home based Internet business

1)   In this industry especially as you start, you will do alot of work up front. It will seem like
you are not accomplishing anything but, in fact, you're really just one more step closer in a list of tasks that has to be performed.

Why, what, when, where & how  factors into your achievements.

·                     What is it that you want?

·                     How are you going to get there?

·                     When will you do the work?

·                     When will you see a (ROI) return on invest?

·                     Where do you begin? And, the oh so important..........

·                     WHY?

   WHY do you want to work from home?

   WHY do you chose Internet marketing?

   Motivation & having a real solid commitment to achieving those baby steps, those small goals, will create the foundation of your business.

   Working hard, getting it right & by initiating a few simple but effective steps then refining those steps. Can almost guarantee your success in your online endeavors. If you understand & have a passion for this industry, you have leap over a tall barrier! Do understand, that for the serious entrepreneur, one knows that this is not going to get you rich or wealthy overnight nor next week, let alone this month.

   It really is an....on-going events the requires constant attention, building, improvements topped with plenty of patients.

A few questions you should ask yourself

·                   Do you know why you are considering this business opportunity?

·                   Will your personal work habits/ethics enable to enjoy running a home based business?

·                   Do you like to make your own decisions?

·                   Do you enjoy competition?

·                   Do you have the will power and self-discipline?

·                   Do you plan ahead and get things done on time?

·                   Can you take advice from others?

·                   Can you adapt to changing conditions?

·                   What about computer technology, are willing to improve on what you think know?

·                   Do you have the physical stamina and emotional strength to handle a business?

            (There will be lots of doubts, mistakes, do-overs....effort)!

·                     Do you understand that working your own internet business means working 4 - 6 hrs a day easily, (8 -12hrs. when you're full-time), seven days a week and holidays? 

             Of course, you are at home, so remember this.

·                     Do you know which skills and areas of expertise are critical to the success of your business? That, there are endless resources to help fill in your weakest link.

   This will be your business-- its a business as if you're running a shop at the mall or your street corner store.

2)  Start your business right:


   What product/service or even a hobby, do you have an expertise in. Perhaps, a gut feeling
about. Something that you will have fun & comfortable doing. ( It's not work, if you like what you are doing)

   Realize that you must now think as a business-person.  Any business owner must have a vision of what, where, how & who they want their business to cater to. Your targeted audience!

   A business plan can provide you not only a description of your business'  forecast. But also, a kind of road-map that will give you an insight on your business' products/services, markets, marketing strategies & procedures that will get you to the place you need to be with your new business. 
   A well-written business plan can provide you with a view of your business concept, a description of your products or services, what distinguishes your products/services from your competition. Identifying your target audience, so that you concentrate your resources on the needs of a specific group or groups. As this could mean the difference between success or failure!

Points to consider in your plan:

·                    A description of your product or services;

·                     Your view on why you believe you can make an income from this.

·                     What market needs you will meet, the market/customer potential?

·                     Who's your competition?

·                     The work that must be accomplished before your product or service is placed on the  market. Also indicate the time and costs involved.

·                    Explain how your pricing structure will enable you to gain a profit.

·                    Write out how much money is needed ( Don't let anyone fool, software, office supplies, legal documents, internet connections, back-up system, advertising etc.,)
             It takes money to make money, plain & simple.

·                      Describe your potential customers, their locations, why they buy & when they buy is there something else you can offer them.

·                     Strategy-- a plan of attack, the small steps, pieces of the puzzle put together that make  up the big picture.

·                      Estimate time & resources it will take to achieve a return on your investment (ROI).

3)  The place where consumers will come to you as the center point for information &  do some kind of business with you. The place to make a name for yourself and build your online reputation.

This also is known as "Branding".

Your web presence. Your web I.D.  

   Create this online branding by building a business website. Your website should be distinctive (you), easy to navigate, and full of useful information. Think about exactly what purpose you want your website to serve.(Your targeted audience).

   Information, promotions of other businesses, hobbies etc., exactly what your websites' target audience will be should have been made clear with your business plan. Consider your website as a tool for building  your business and profit. Because doing business on the internet is going to open up an entire new market for you than any  physical store, simply because of the vast amount of potential customers you can reach.(one & half billion people are online across the global in 2009)
   Your website can be a powerful marketing tool online just as newspapers, magazines & television were in the past. The internet has become the fastest, most inexpensive & reliable form of communication to 10's of millions across this globe.  Industry researchers predict that the number of online consumers will grow at a rate of 30% to 50% over the next few years.
   Compared to "Brick-N-Mortar business' websites do not cost too much to build. Consumers now search for information online prior to making a purchase at a brick-and-mortar store, your site may be the first chance you have at making a good impression and capture that sell.

   Your website is your store online; you must have a presence on the internet so consumer can easily find out more about your business and the products/services you have to offer.
