It all started when I clicked on an add ‘to make money from home’.  I was directed to a site that talked about multiple streams of income.  Those streams included stock market investment, forex investment, real estate and ebusiness or online marketing; to name a few.  I decided to look into more and have taken some courses on ebusiness and forex.  Both have been interesting and informative but rather daunting to undertake without some personal direction or coaching.  Maybe you are more savvy than myself but I knew I needed more.

I tried the ebusiness first but got stuck on finding a product to sell online.  I wanted the convenience of drop-shipping but of the several products I tried to get started with, they all wanted to see my website before they would consider letting me market their wares.  But how do you develope a website without a product?

Meanwhile I was getting lots of emails promoting gimmicks and software products to make me rich in just a few clicks of the mouse.  I hate to admit it but I did try a few and soon found out they did not deliver what they said they would or at least not for a newbie like me.

Enter John Thornhill, stage right.  Thankfully I did not quit looking at the emails entirely because I got one from John Thornhill promoting his One Month Mentor product.  He sounded sincere and down to earth so I decided to try one more.  It was worth every penny I spent.  Unfortunately, as mentioned in an earlier post, I got sidetracked and did not quite finish the course.  I got close but….  Now I am taking his Partnership to Success program and feeling newly inspired and ready to take on the world again.

I honestly feel that he is a great coach and makes it easy to follow his directions step by baby step.  I would have no problem endorsing his coaching classes.  Perhaps you might try John Thornhill’s Masterclass if you are serious about trying to make an income online.

Another great thing about his coaching courses is the access to forums where you can get help and advice from others a little further upstream than yourself.

I am getting close to when I will need to begin making my own product to sell.  At this point I am leaning toward website design and creation.  I really like the idea of creating websites and have been doing some research and learning in that direction.  So I went to the forum.   A good start was to go to Lisa Hernandez’s blog (http://www.rooniehernandez.com) and grab a copy of her ‘Easy WordPress Websites’ for free.

I have also got a book or two on the subject and will be meeting with someone today who creates and sells websites.  I really feel that getting help from those that already know is 100 times better than just trying to learn it all from scratch and worth the money spent.
