There's An Internet Sucker Born Every Minute

Step right up and get your free easy moneymaking opportunities!
Come on ladies and gents, see the amazing home Internet based business opportunity!
Make incredible huge amounts of money on the Internet!
It's almost that time of year again when that greatest show online begins. Right after the holidays, people begin giving their lifestyles the once over. Many will decide to create a better lifestyle for themselves and their families by working at home.
Dreams of quitting their jobs and making a decent living with only a little effort and the right moneymaking opportunities on the Internet is all they need to make a fresh start.
While these sincere folks are busy making plans, there's another gang of people just waiting in the shadows for the trusting shark bait . . I mean, people, to jump online. Let's call them the Internet sharks. And their mantra is:
"There's An Internet Sucker Born Every Minute."
Now I know that most of you looking to make serious money on the Internet are not trying to purposely get scammed out of your hard earned dollars, but you're often blinded - by your enthusiasm for pursuing work at home jobs and opportunities - to the dangers of the professional con artists.
The sharks are very careful to create a professional look and feel to their work at home scams. Often they will dangle tantalizing ways to make easy money online. They'll tell you it's free to make money online. How fast and effortless it all is. In no time you'll be living in grand style. Yeah, right.
Nothing in this world is free and that includes business opportunities. Someone is going to collect their money from these good folks ' even when it's 'free to join.' Watch out for that hand quietly slipping into your back pocket and cleaning out your credit card while you're being told how much money you're going to make.
Remember that to do business in the offline world it costs start up money. It's no different online. To build a successful online income, you've got to start out with legitimate work at home jobs and opportunities.
The bad news is that these kinds of legitimate work at home opportunities are like finding a needle in a haystack. You have to go through tons of hay before finding that precious needle.
When you do find the right home business ideas for your lifestyle and budget, then you will have to work VERY HARD and SMART in order to make it succeed. There is a high frustration rate for people coming online to seek their fortunes. Many never make one thin dime.
To avoid this happening to you, the first thing you should do when you find something you're interested in is ASK questions. You can use google to search for any negatives and positives about your chosen opportunity.
The Internet is great for finding out the truth about the best home based business opportunities AND the lemons. The Internet is a big community and many people are willing to share their experiences and horror stories.
A great message board to ask about home business opportunities is: Friends in Business http://friendsinbusiness.com/board1/index.cgi?
A new year is beginning and it's great to feel that rush of excitement as you go about your goal of creating a better life for yourself. However, before you plop down that wad of cash on a 'sure thing' remember that success doesn't happen overnight (not even for all those Internet gurus), and in order to be really successful online you need to slow down and first learn strategic Internet marketing.
This means a lot of reading and studying from people who have been there and done that successfully. Hint: message boards are great for this.
So happy New Year and stay away from those sharks. Don't let them make a poor Internet sucker out of you.
