    I've always had an entrepreneur spirit, and tried different MLM business off and on over the years. I like I feel internet marketing is a better fit for my personality and how I tend to do things. I like the possibility of having residual income and being able to structure my work around my life instead of the other way around. Time with my family is very important to me and being able to do a variety of different things, so I like the flexibility that comes with working from home.

    The reason why i choose internet marketing over perosnal or other marketing as its time saving, its appeals to more people at once.

    I used to work as a website editor for my company and then a couple of years back I moved into a completely new role. I missed the 'online world' so I started a blog about Disney World and another to review the books I was reading as a personal challenge. Before to long I started getting traffic and I threw up some adsense and started making some small change. So last year I researched and read as much as I could about making money online and this year I'm putting it all into practice to try and build a sustainable business. I love the fact that you can learn something new, put it into practice and then track your results all without leaving your computer

    I agree with both of these. When I lived in Utah I did a lot of brick and mortar consulting. After I moved to Oregon I went deep into the IM side of business. A move I am very grateful for.

    Just this morning I got an email from a man who wanted to take me to lunch to help me get established doing local business. I told him my desire to put on a suit and go into town to court business is the furthest from my interest level than just about anything.

    The flexibility the Internet allows is incredible. Both on a professional level and personal.

    Thumbs up Why Are You Marketing On The Internet?

    I am doing this for two reasons.

    1. I love my husband very much and love being with him. I miss him so very much when we are "at work" When he is at work 5am-2pm, I wake up and spend 3 hours or so learning Affiliate marketing ( about a month now) When I go to work 1pm-10pm, he comes home, takes a nap, cooks us dinner and brings it to me and sets up his computer and stays there at my job till I leave; So we can spend time together. We work well together and I hate how they treat him at work. I also hate that he has to wake up so early. So my first reason is to stay home and work a business with my husband.

    2. I love learning and writing, especially my Bible and Health, I am like an "ORGANIC GURU" and I love learning all the nasty bad ways our food is being processed and made, with all the diseases we now have as a nation, it amazes me. I had MS and my husband had RSD... at one point we were both in wheeelchairs, I am now fully recovered, he is 85% recovered and neither of us are in wheelchairs, but rather active and healthy. I believe and have seen that most diseases are a direct result of the foods we eat and the medicines we take ( Look at Diabetes, a purely diet related disease)......Oh, my husband, Peter, was on 37 prescription drugs in the A.M. and 37 in the P.M. and is now on NO MEDICINE!!! He was losing his hair and it was turning gray.....now he has a full "THICK" head of blond hair again.........I can go on and on!!

    I desire to teach the world and anyone who will listen, that they too can regain their health and reverse their disease.

    That is why I want to learn this business; I don't have a lot of knowledge in the area of Affiliate marketing but I am learning and am passionate enough to get there. I read Lynn's report, Jon Ledgers and am now reading the Super Affiliate Handbook by Gardner.

    Although my children are not old enough to homeschool, I did want to be able to stay home and start a family again, which is what I did when I remarried.

    I have always loved studying business and trying out ideas for making money so this seemed like a good fit for me too. As I always seemed to get in to trouble with previous employers by telling them "a better" way to run their business, not having to deal with a boss in that manner was what I set as my goal. (3 out of 4 bosses I tried to talk to have since gone out of business by not taking my suggestions )

    I like the freedom of working whenever I want around my 1yr old and 3yr olds schedule, and still have time to go shopping in the middle of the day or take a break and watch a movie during nap time, etc.

    Although, I still would like to make more money, less being service oriented and more passive income, I would not trade this for a $50/hr job out in the "real" world.
