We already are on the final stretch of the year and this is the time that I usually plan my goals for the next year. Next year I want to travel, if not overseas at least I get to go around the country. I think it is about time for me to explore my country before planning to explore other countries. But of course this doesn’t necessarily mean that I will stop my music passion/journey. I would probably buy yamaha travel guitar and still engage on playing it while travelling. I might get to compose songs along the way, who knows.
Just starting out online, wondering how you can make money from an online business and cash in? It’s not really that difficult…no really! I know you may be suffering from information overload, but be assured you’re not alone; I’ve been there as have most online business people.
So, where to start? Well I’m going to give your 4 ways to develop an online business and start making some money.
1. Start a blog-I know it sounds simplistic but it’s true, if you want an online presents (and you should) start a blog. It can be a free one from any of the available platforms (there’s a bunch) but I would recommend Blogger.com. Why? Because it’s my favorite that’s why! Seriously though Blogger is owned by Google, so it should be around for a while, you can monetize your blog in just about any way you like, the site is very user friendly, and you can be blogging in just a few minutes!
2. Article marketing-Article marketing is quickly becoming one of my favorite ways to create content for my Internet audience of millions. Not only can you get as many (you’re in control here) quality backlinks to your online content, but you can make money with your articles themselves (ever heard of Bum Marketing?)
3. Build a list-“the money’s in the list” Ok, ok I know you’ve heard that too many times but it is just so true! People who take the time to subscribe to your list are wanting to hear more of what you have to say. That makes them more open to any offers you have than some Joe Blow who happens to find your offer while surfing around the net…right?
4. Create your own product or service-this will be the way to make the most money online hands down! (if you develop a popular product or service anyways) Do this in conjunction with the other steps and you could well be on your way to building your own money sucking online business. Although you can make money online by implementing any or all of these money making techniques, combining them all has proved a profitable combination time and again.
If there’s one guilty pleasure that I consider having is my fondness on buying music instruments. This isn’t totally weird because I am really into music specifically playing musical instrument. I could say that I was almost on the verge of knowing how to play almost all kinds of musical instruments. I just categorize this as my guilty pleasure because it is financially challenging to keep up with this passion of mine. If I had to buy a music instruments I need to really work hard for it. No worries, because if you love something there is no amount of money that can stop you for pursuing it because the reward isn’t something that money can buy.

This is the time that I need to start making a list for Christmas. This time instead of making a list of person I am making a list of kind of stuff that I will be giving out certain person just of shake things up this year, break the old routine. For instance, magnetic therapy bracelets would make my lists that will be later on be assigned to a certain person in my life that I know would love magnetic therapy bracelets. I think that this would be interesting. Let’s see if this is better than my old Christmas list project.
Christmas causes many to feel the joy about the meaning of holiday, gathering with family and friends and exchanging gifts. Christmas shopping has become national pastime for many people, as list are formed, sales sought and crowds expected. When money is tight, holiday invoke more stress than fun and the fear of adding to already overburdened credit cards make some people dread the reason. You shouldn’t spend more than you can afford, but understanding the percentage of income that many people spend on Christmas gifts can be helpful.
Regardless of how much you spend Christmas present extra expense can cause financial hardship if you haven’t saved for it. Estimating you holiday spending based on your purchases in previous years can help you save monthly for the amount that you need. After calculating your Christmas budget and how much you must save each month, put money from each paycheck in separate account and avoid using it.
To keep your Christmas spending down, consider giving gifts that are meaningful, but cost you little or nothing, if you have ability to make attractive items that other can use or display, the recipient will appreciate the thought and effort. Alternatively, give certificate for free service that you perform. Re gifting, giving a gift that you received from someone else but don’t want or need, may be a solution.
I had been busy the past month that I forgot to set-up one of my project blog this year. I hate it when this happens. Hopefully I get to have the time to push it through by the end of this year. I am not saying what it would be all about because I don’t want to jinx it and then it will become one those unfulfilled plans. It’s like breaking a promise that made to me and I don’t want the kind of feeling that comes with it. As a clue, if you are curious, it has something to do with this website. So I guess I need to rearrange my priorities if I want this project blog of mine to get materialized.
