Within "How To Start A Home Business Online" I have given all the information on the tools and methods I used to get a web presence. With links to all the free online tutorials you'll ever need to build your own website and optimize it as a commercial asset, on a shoestring budget.
I know all this information is out there on the cyberspace highway but it has taken years to sort the wheat from the chaff. A great deal of the information that daily, solicits our inbox by Guru X, Y and Z is grossly outdated. For instance you will get a 1000 + word sales letter expounding the virtues of the latest and best automatic this or that gizmo to promote your site. Many of these gizmo's are outdated methods that will do you more harm than good. Therefore I will keep updating this eBook on a regular basis.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of the people who left their testimonials at the kimbro.net comments page.

Product Review of ListInferno
Concept: Adds Thousands Of 100% Opt-In Leads To Your List
Overall Rating: 5 out of 5
Ease of Use: 5 out of 5
Effectiveness: 5 out of 5
Recommendation: Use Immediately - Major List Building Tool
Anyone successful on the Internet tells you the gold is in
your list. But what if you can't get that list? What if
you're struggling to get just 100 subscribers a week?
Now there's a better solution, that enables anyone to add
thousands of 100% opt-in subscribers to their list, with
very little effort.
Technical eMarketer Steve Shaw, the guy behind this tool,
says that ListInferno has been designed to "give everyone
and anyone the ability to create their own big valuable
opt-in list ... this system has been designed to add
thousands of opt-in leads to your list for the bare minimum
of effort - and it's all 100% free".
So, does it live up to the hype?
When I first took a look at this tool, I thought, "Well,
there are some systems similar to this one on the net...
What makes this one so special?"
Then, when I signed up and followed the process in the
Setup Wizard, the answer was easy to see. There are some
subtle differences in this tool that make it really stand
out. And I'd be willing to bet that these differences may
well make this the most viral list building tool yet seen
It's important to realize, that rather than bringing you
huge amounts of traffic, this tool brings you what anyone
wanting to make money online needs even more - quality
targetted 100% opt-in leads for your list.
This new free tool could well be the easiest, cheapest and
fastest way to build your list yet developed. In fact, by
jumping on board with this as soon as possible, you could
gain a strong advantage over your competitors.
And if they are already signed up, that's even more reason
not to waste any more time. After all, the one with the
biggest list usually wins, and makes the most money.
Definitely ride the wave on this:
Listen, I've tried this out myself - it's so easy and so
effective, it would be pretty dumb not to use it
immediately. Anything that can give you free subscribers
for virtually zero effort is worth a try - and this system
can give you lots of those.
Bottom Line: This is probably the most effective list
building system we have ever encountered - and quite
possibly there will never be anything like this again. We
mean that. We just hope it stays free... You should get it
now while it still is.

Q.I came to your site for information on "How to start a home business online". I want to start my own business promoting my own product [aged Care product to prevent bed sores] on the internet. I have read and taken onboard what you have written on the site. Although I found your comments to be straight forward and interesting I have to say that I am disappointed. You suggest that to learn the ropes I should join an affiliate program or pay a marketing company to promote my product. Neither of these options appeal to me. Firstly I am excited about promoting my own product and don't want to expend my resources, time and energy promoting someone else's product. Unfortunately I don't have the capital to pay a marketing company to set up and promote a website for me as I would need at least $50,000 to start. You correctly state that there is an information overload on the internet on this subject. I have purchased countless e-books on the subject - all of them have led me into an unending paper chase.
I came to your site expecting to find a step by step guide on how to start my home business online. I came to this conclusion from the search results on Yahoo. I have copied and pasted the search results below.

Instead I found a step by step guide on how to start in the Body Extreme business as an affiliate. You obviously know how to set up an online business with a web presence, I've noticed that you are selling your own product "SPACE" on the site. Or did you pay a company to set up this site for you?
If you did set up and promoted this site yourself, why can't you write a step by step guide on how you did it?
Posted by Julia UK
A. Thank you for your question and constructive criticism. I must admit that at the outset I had intended to write a step by step instruction on how to set up your own business online. I guess that I found the project too daunting. I actually did gain all my knowledge over a period of three years of struggling with affiliate programs. To write down all that I have learnt would entail writing a book there are so many different facets to cover. Probably this is the reason why the information one can access on the internet is so confusing as each e-book covers one or only several of the necessary facets in detail. Your question and trying to figure out an answer for you has led me to an idea. I am going to write an e-book in a step by step format with direct links to all the resources that I have utilized myself.
On completion I will send you a free copy, should be complete in around two weeks. Again thank you for your question which has motivated me into action.

I have a beautifull taby cat I have a difficult
time to spray the Zodiac Flea Proof Spray because as soon as I start ,she
runs and hide under the couch and she would'nt come out. Please advice what
to do and any article about cats would be appreciated very much.
A. This is not an unusual problem. The easiest way that I have found is to get a bath towel lay it out flat and lightly spray or powder [if you are using flea powder] it over an area large enough to accommodate your cat. This is best done in a different room to where your cat is, as just the noise of the spray will remind your cat of the nasty experience of a previous treatment. Once your towel is prepared go and pick up your cat, place your cat on the towel and quickly wrap it up in the towel so only the head is left free. Now give your cat a cuddle. All wrapped up in a towel your cat can't escape or scratch you and the medication will rub into your cats coat more effectively than dusting or spraying.
NOTE: Wrapping your cat in a bath towel is also the safest restraint when dosing your cat by mouth or injection.

Paul. - USA
A. Hi Paul I found that building my own list then find people that built their list. Offer to post your message to their list. In return you post their message to your list. When you post your message to their list offer something in return if they will join your list. I started with 20 people in my list, now have 5000. Started slowly but grows real fast after a time. took me six months.

Q. I am having a problem with a label that I designed (salad in a bottle). I need advise on how to keep it professional and presentable at a low cost for a start. Can we try and see if anybody can come up with maybe a better idea for a label, or if I can maybe use a online website to design the label myself in order to save money.
I also need a supplier that can supply me with the correct bottle.
Hope you can help.
ESTELLE - ZA
A. Estelle, my name is Sven Knieling please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org I can probably help you with your label.
As for the bottle it's probably better to source that in your own country.

and Learn and then remember this.
Make your own Christmas cards with your computer. To make a template take an A4 sheet of paper fold it in half and then fold it in half again. Write picture on the front - turn the page and write page1 - write page 2 on the facing page turn the page and write back page. Now unfold the paper and lay it flat. You will notice that your paper has 4 sections and the direction of your writing will guide you as to how you have to place your script and artwork in a text and graphics editor page. Once you have completed your script and artwork or photo insert print out your page. Then fold it in 4 as in the first step and voila! you have made your own personal Christmas card.

public discussion about decency
At a fundraising
dinner for a school that serves learning disabled children, the father of one
of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who
After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he offered a question.
"When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does is done with perfection. Yet my son, Shay, cannot
learn things as other children do. He cannot understand things as other children do. Where is the natural order of things in my son?"
The audience was stilled by the query.
The father continued. "I believe, that when a child like Shay comes into the world, an opportunity to realise true human nature
presents itself, and it comes, in the way other people treat that child."
Then he told the following story: Shay and his father had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing baseball.
Shay asked, "Do you think they'll let me play?" Shay's father knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but the father also understood that if his son were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging Shay's father approached one of the boys on the field and asked if Shay could play.
The boy looked around for guidance and, getting none, he took matters into his own hands and said, "We're losing by six runs and the game is in the eighth inning. I guess he can be on our team and we'll try to put him in to bat in the ninth inning."
In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay's team scored a few runs but was still behind by three. In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and played in the outfield. Even though no hits came his way, he was obviously ecstatic just to be in the game and on the field, grinning from ear to ear as his father waved to him from the stands.
In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay's team scored again. Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was on base and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat.
At this juncture, let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game?
Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was all but impossible 'cause Shay didn't even know how to hold the bat properly, much less connect with the ball. However, as Shay stepped up to the plate, the pitcher moved in a few steps to lob the ball in softly so Shay could at least be able to make contact.
The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed. The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards Shay. As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right back to the pitcher. The pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman. Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game. Instead, the pitcher took the ball and turned and threw the ball on a high arc to right field, far beyond the reach of the first baseman. Everyone started yelling, "Shay, run to first! Run to first!" Never in his life had Shay ever made it to first base. He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled. Everyone yelled, "Run to second, run to second!"
By the time Shay rounded first base, the right fielder had the ball. He could have thrown the ball to the second-baseman for the tag, but he understood the pitcher's intentions and intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third-baseman's head. Shay ran toward second base as the runners ahead of him deliriously circled the bases toward home. Shay reached second base, the opposing shortstop ran to him, turned him in the direction of third base, and shouted, "Run to third!" As Shay rounded
third, the boys from both teams were screaming, "Shay, run home!" Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the hero who hit the "grand slam" and won the game for his team.
"That day," said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, "the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true
love and humanity into this world."
AND, NOW A LITTLE FOOTNOTE TO THIS STORY: We all send thousands of jokes through the e-mail without a second thought, but when it comes to sending messages about life choices, people think twice about sharing. The crude, vulgar, and often obscene pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion about decency is too often suppressed in our
schools and workplaces.

Douglas McGuire Appeal by Kitty Brown
A couple of days ago I saw that Douglas McGuire was online in my Skype contact list. He had not been on line for several weeks and I had assumed that he was on holidays. Douglas informed me that he 'd spent the last few weeks in hospital. Imagine my shock when he told me bravely that he'd been given three months to live. Douglas has been in remission for five years with leukemia following a life saving procedure in the US. The same doctor in the US that performed this last procedure has offered to repeat this procedure for free. Douglas believes this is his only chance for survival. His family has rallied round him and are assisting him financially as much as they can with the huge hospital fees and associated expenses. When I asked Douglas when he was leaving for the US he told me "as soon as I can raise the funds for my return trip from Sydney."
He did not solicit me to make this appeal but would be very grateful if we could help.
I will send anyone who can verify a donation of $20 or more to Douglas McGuire a free copy of the slide show "SPACE".
To make your donation please contact Douglas McGuire direct at:
