You are thinking of starting your own business. Here is quotation from Thomas J.
Watson Sr who was the driving force that made IBM into the largest manufacturer of electric
typewriters and data-processing equipment.
"You cannot be a success in any business without believing that it is the greatest
business in the world... You have to put your heart in the business
and the business in your heart."

Then this Website is for you.
All this generally assumes that you have a day job but you may not, you may be unemployed,
one of the many single parent families, pensioners, housewives or house-husbands
who would also like to have a pay cheque each month. This Website is most definitely
for you too.
So in an ideal world you are looking for a source of additional income that will
1. Not need a large capital outlay
2. That won’t require massive amounts of training,
3. That will fit into your available time
4. And with the flexibility to complement your business and family commitments.
5. Wealth would be nice.
The word wealth for some is a dirty word. Those who resent wealth, use phrases like
‘where there’s muck there’s money’, ‘you can’t take it with you’, ‘property is theft’.
Many of the wealthy regard such criticism as jealously from those without the wit
or will to do the same themselves. In fact both sides are probably trying to justify
and defend their position. Sadly both sides are blinded by the lies that they are
telling themselves. Wealth is so misunderstood. It may be an archaic view but I make
a distinction between wealth and riches. The word rich has an ancient Germanic origin
in the word Riche and later reich meaning power whereas wealth has its origin in
well health or well-being. That these two words, at least as far as dictionaries
and general usage are concerned, have become synonymous is a great loss to the English
language. I like to retain that distinction and I would ask you to accept that distinction
as you read what follows.
I have no problem with my concept of wealth. My quarrel is with motive and means.
It is here that the distinction lies between riches and wealth. The person who believes
that they have acquired wealth but who did so by fraud and malpractice may be rich
but they are not truly wealthy. Their riches will always be more insecure and their
personal wealth is almost non-existent.
What do I mean by personal wealth. I certainly don’t just mean money in this case.
I mean true happiness and a life of true quality.
The person who acquires riches, especially great riches by immoral practices, tends
to have no friends other than those that money can buy. If his practices were blatantly
illegal, he risks exposure and prison. If his path to riches was at the expense of
others, then when trouble comes no one owes him anything and he’s likely to find
that he has no friends. Those that he tricked and deceived will be always out to
revenge themselves. These ‘rich’ people may have a life of luxury but they have no
security, for the law or the vengeful will take it from them given half a chance.
I recently discovered that out there are opportunities for true wealth making that
work in quite a different and sympathetic way.
Imagine getting wealthy helping others to do the same thing. Are they more likely
to become firm friends if you’ve helped them to become wealthy? Of course. Will
their happiness enrich your life? It’s bound to. If the more people you helped to
wealth made you still wealthier in both money and respect, would that feel good.
Who is going to be more secure. You or the one that became rich by unethical practices.
These business opportunities are totally and completely about helping others to get
what they want. What’s more you will only succeed if you focus on that. Once you
start thinking self only, you are lost.
