Some things never change, and certain truths are universal. As it happens, this applies to the age old topic of money, as well. At any time in history, no matter what the current state of the economy, no matter what the current trends, no matter what the unemployment rate is or where interest rates lurk, some money-making truths are set in stone, and remain true across time in all different kinds of economies.

Some of you may have heard of these ideas before, to others they may be entirely new. But whether you are familiar with these super secrets or not, it will be well worth your while to put them into effect in your own life. The magic they will work on your financial life is guaranteed. These money-making ideas are just waiting for you to bring them to life. We urge you to put them to work for you - any one of these could change your life!

Let's get started!

Amazing Money Tip #1:

The great scientist Albert Einstein once said, "It takes a genius to see the obvious." What he meant by that is that sometimes the simplest things in life are the most powerful ... but because they are so simple, we tend to ignore them, and not let them work for us.

One of the simplest but most powerful money making ideas is this: Keep a daily log of everything you spend. Go to the dime store and buy a little notebook. Carry it with you wherever you go. Write down every penny -every single penny - you spend every day. It's as simple as that.

If you do this, you will find something magic happening in your financial life in just a few weeks. There is something incredibly powerful about writing down all your expenditures. It makes the flow of money through your life more real and exact. It shows you simply and clearly just where you are spending your money, on what and why. Once you know that, it becomes much easier to control your spending.

Many people who have taken up this practice have not only learned something about themselves which they never knew before, but they are often astounded. For example, one woman realized through examining her notebook that she actually spent nearly $2,000 per year on diet soft drinks, snacks and candy bars! Since her job as a office clerk brought her a scant $12,000 per year, she realized that one-sixth of her entire income was being frittered away on something entirely frivolous. The woman gave up the snacks and drinks, and found she had enough money to afford health insurance - plus has $400 left over. If you could choose snacks or health insurance, which would you choose?

The point is, it was her daily expense log that helped her achieve the insight and clarity she needed to get control of her finances. That's what a simple spending record will do for you - it will give you control over your spending, and thus your financial life. There may be nothing but a 75-cent notebook and a ballpoint pen between your life of financial struggle and financial freedom.

Amazing Money Tip #2:

Stop deficit spending! We all know how much trouble Uncle Sam has been creating spending more money than our country takes in. It's called deficit spending. Well, don't fool yourself. The same rules apply to you.
 those evil little plastic cards may be the "American Way," but it's a damn poor way.

Today, the average credit card holder is carrying $7,000 in plastic debt! Spending yourself into debt with a credit card is unbelievably easy, as many of you already know. The reason is psychological. When you give that clerk a credit card, it's just not the same as handing over a stack of green dollar bills. Would you as readily hand over a fistful of ten dollar bills as flip a credit card across a counter? Probably not.

Credit cards put you in the hole and keep you there. Even for people with good incomes, paying your credit card debt down to zero is amazingly difficult. And make no bones about it, credit card debt will sap your financial strength just as readily as an open vein will deplete your physical body of its very life force. Using a credit card by choice can quickly turn to using it for need. Once you get to that point, you are already in trouble.

There is no secret to freeing yourself from the credit card game. You must take out a pair of scissors TODAY, cut your cards in half, and begin paying them back, slowly but surely. Once you stop adding to the debt, even small payment will eventually add up. You can get out of debt if you are patient and disciplined. Once your cards are history, you must adopt a strict pay-as-you go policy. Instead of buying now and paying later, save now and buy when you have the full amount.

Once again, this is not rocket science, but stopping credit-oriented consuming is one of the most powerful financial tools available to anyone today. Why not pick up this tool and use it?

Amazing Tip #3:

Sell your junk. That's right, it's high past time for a major garage sale. If you don't have a garage, it's time to search through your house or apartment for every single item you don't need, and could convert quickly to cash at a flea market or garage sale. Take an inventory. The truth is, most people are astounded by what they own - and how much money they have tied up in useless stuff. Why let it collect dust in your attic while it could collect interest in a savings account.

You could easily be $500, $1,000 ... even $3,000 richer by the end of the week. As an added bonus, you'd have your place cleaned up, and you will have a fresh feeling of starting over. A garage sale is an excellent way to not only clean out your house, but it often gives a psychological boost that helps people get control of their life and money.

Amazing Tip #4

Ben Franklin said it long ago: "A penny saved is a penny earned." Yes, it's still true, and still one of the most powerful money-making tips in all history. Implied within Franklin's famous statement is the difficulty of saving. It's tough to save and easy to spend! You know that! That's why every penny saved truly is earned - because it takes so much effort to hold on to that cash! But if you can do it, it will work magic in your life. Having a savings account will de-stress your life. Imagine being ahead of your bills, rather than behind. When you are ahead of your bills, you entirelife comes under your control. You sleep better at night. Your mind is freer to come up with new ways to make more money and save more. Saving is contagious - once you let it get started!

Here are some tips to help you save:

* Don't settle for interest checking. Have a separate savings account that can't be as easily accessed as a checking account.
* Keep your savings in another bank - one that's off your regular route, or perhaps even in another town. That way you won't be tempted to dip into it every time you visit the bank to make a checking deposit.
* Buy short-term savings bonds, which have 6-month to one-year maturity dates. That way you will get a higher rate, while at the same time keeping your money close in case of real emergencies.
* If you can, open the account under two names and require that both signatures be required to make a withdrawal. Two people can debate each withdrawal and keep each other in line.

Amazing Tip #5

Visualize wealth and abundance everyday. What we are actually suggesting is that you practice some sort of airy-fairy mysticism that will make you into a "money magnet"? Maybe yes, maybe no. Call it what you will - a mind game, mysticism, New

Age ga-ga -- but the solid fact is that behind every wealthy man and woman is a positive attitude toward money. Here's a quick demonstration:

(1) Person One with a negative money attitude has daily thoughts which go his way: "Jeez! $20 bucks is hard to come by! I seem to work so hard and get so little for it. Money just slips through my fingers. It's amazing how much money you have to earn to just get by these days. I'm never going to be able to afford that new car on my limited salary, but this job is still the best thing going for me right now. It's easy for some people to make a lot of money, but I'm not one of those people ..." and on and on.

(2) Person Two with a positive money attitude has daily thoughts which go this way: "You know, I bet if I work my butt off I can get a raise next month, and then I'll take half of the extra money I make and toss it in a savings account. There must be a 100 other ways I can bring in some extra cash. Money is not all that hard to earn if you work hard, watch your spending and save a little at a time. There's enough wealth for everybody in this country, and I can easily get my share, and more ..." and on and on.

Okay. Which person do you think will have a better chance of success? You don't need to be a Rhodes Scholar to see how Person One is dragging himself down with his thoughts, and how Person Two is giving himself a fighting chance.

Look at it this way: It costs nothing one way or the other to have either negative or positive thoughts. So why not have positive thoughts?

There has been many studies done on the thought patterns and the frames of mind of some of the richest most successful people in the world. The one thing they all had in common was a positive attitude toward money and their ability to earn it.

So we strongly recommend you begin shaping your thoughts TODAY toward positive thoughts about money. Then step back and watch the money miracle happen.

Amazing Tip #6

Do what you love and the money will follow. I think there's a book by that title. At any rate, it's true. One of the primary reasons that many people live paycheck to paycheck and are broke despite working very hard at
jobs is the fact that they hate what they do.

If you hate your job, you will not have a positive attitude toward money. You will associate money with that dreadful sound of the alarm clock every morning. Once you tie up your source of wealth and income with slavery, that's truly what you will become: a slave.

Starting today, you should begin planning your escape. The first thing you should ask yourself is: "If money were no object, what would I be doing? What do I like to do most for fun, and is it possible that I could get paid for it?

Sound ludicrous? It's not. In fact, if your work is not also your play, you are fighting against yourself. You will eventually burn out and hate the world. On the other hand, if you get up every day being exciting, positive and looking forward to what you are going to be doing - and making money at it - you will automatically move toward doing more and more of what you love, and making more and more money at it.

Amazing Tip #7

You must get organized. Being a tidy, efficient person has more influence on how much money you make more than you can ever imagine. A lot of us are accustomed to associate a messy desk with genius because we have seen so many photos of great scientists sitting behind stacks and stacks of junk. But guess what? Great scientists don't get paid squat! They are not worried about making money. Their university or the government takes care of them.

You, however, want to have a lot of money, so you can't afford to be a slob. Think about it. Let's say you are at your desk trying to get some work done. You need to find the stapler, but because your office is such a pit, you spend 15 minutes looking for it. You've just spent 15 unproductive minutes. Next you may need to locate a file, and that takes you 20 minutes of sifting through paper. Another 20 minutes down the tube.

By the end of the day, you may easily burn up two or three hours doing something as trivial as looking for things. The same goes for any kind of job you might have. If you are an auto mechanic, how much time do you spend trying to find a nine-sixteenth wrench, when you could have it at your fingertips.

It's disorganized people who are always saying at the end of the day: "I seem to work so hard but get very little done!" Of course! You spent the entire day looking for the Scotch tape! The fact is, time is money. The more time you spend unproductively, the less time you are earning money. Clean up your office. Organize your tool shed. Get your bookwork organized. Think of every minute saved as a buck in your pocket.

Amazing Money Tip #8

Make your own daily top 10 list. Speaking of getting organized, you should sit down every morning with your cup of coffee and list the top 10 things you would like to get done that day. Then organize them in priority of importance. Start at item No. 1 and go down the list as fast as you can.

Make no doubt about it - this is a powerful way to get work done. It will put hoards of cash in your pocket. The reason is that making money is all about movement - forward movement. As the famous novelist Ayn Rand told us, in a capitalist society the most important things a person can do is move forward every day!

Having a top ten list will ensure that you accomplish something every day. You may not get through the whole list every day, nor should you necessarily try. Just do your best. At the end of the day, you should be able to look at your list with pride, examine the scratched off items and say: "That's what I got done today! I did something to better my life and create wealth!"

Again, this method has been used by a majority of the most wealthy and successful people in history. Shouldn't you join the club?

Amazing Money Tip #9

You must set short-term goals and long-term goals. If you don't know where you are going, how do you expect to get there? It's simple but powerful logic. When you have a target sitting out there somewhere in the future, a target which is your goal, it can almost act like a magnet that pulls you toward it.

Setting solid, reachable goals which are attainable, yet a challenge, have proved time and time again to be one of THE most powerful methods of achieving wealth and success ever developed. This has even been demonstrated in psychology laboratories with small furry animals. It has been demonstrated in corporate training schemes. It has been used successfully again and again by countless individuals. Setting both short term goals and long-term goals has the effect of focusing your mind like a laser beam. It pulls you along toward higher and better things. It gives solidity to what you are trying to accomplish, and thus makes that which you want more real and likely to come into your life.

As you have probably heard, it is best to write your short-term and long-term goals down on paper and then post them somewhere in your workplace and home. The first thing you should do every morning is look over your goal list, and then put together your Top 10 to do list which will move you toward your goal. The last thing you should do every evening is review your short-term and long-term goals, and tell yourself as you go to sleep that you are going to do everything in your power to make those goals a reality in your life.

Amazing Money Tip # 10

Invest your money and make it work at multiplying itself. Saving money in a savings account is important as we said above, but the 2.3 percent interest rates most banks give you is not even enough to keep pace with inflation.

You must do more than save your money -- you must invest it. That means financial vehicles with super-high rates of return, such as mutual funds and stocks, or the more risky commodity markets. A $5,000 investment in commodities can return you 10 times that amount -- $50,000 --in just a few weeks, although you could easily lose it as well. The bottom line is, you should also take a portion of your savings and put them in high interest or high risk investment plans. That's the way to really get ahead fast.

Amazing Money Tip #11

Have fun! Yes, this tip easily makes our Top Ten list because it is so essential to your success. The great writer Ray Bradbury once said in an interview: "If you are not having fun, you might as well forget it. Do everything you do with joy and you'll be successful."

You need to be having fun to stay positive, and you need to stay positive to make money. So come on! Get out their: laugh, clap your hands, live! Have a blast and rake in the cash! The world is waiting for you!

Because tens of thousands of people all across the world want to know how they can work at home and earn enough money to run a house hold, there is a special need for this report. Today the need for women to work out of the home is stronger than ever.According to recent surveys in America, almost 70% are married and contribute up to 50% or more to the family income. Because family responsibilities play such an important part in the lives of men and women, millions of individuals and couples are seeking ways to make money at home.
In the past decade money-making, home-based opportunities that match a person's skills, interests, abilities, and ingenuity have become almost limitless. The purpose of this report is to show you that it's simple and easy to join the ranks of success-minded people by choosing a work-at-home program that suits your interest and needs. Business histories have shown over and over again that the rewards and advantages of working at home can go far beyond a person's wildest dreams. In fact, it's perfectly possible to launch a small business in your garage, backyard,basement, or a room in your home, and become a giant corporation.
Your first step will be to study the company listings in this report, and then contact those that interest you. It's possible you may not be interested in many of those listed in this brief report. But others may serve as that great motivator that makes you look further with a renewed determination. Once you develop that mind-set, persistence will follow and then nothing will stop you from achieving your goals.

If you expect any level of success you must set goals. If you expect to be successful, you must determine what that means toyou and the best way to achieve it. There are two basic steps you can take to convert goals into achievement: 1) You can decide on a specific dollar amount; and 2) You can set a time frame for obtaining the dollar amount you want. Your goal should bespecific and indicate, What, When, and Where. After making a list of every possible way you might accomplish a goal, select the method that best suits your situation.

1)"How can I support my family while I build up my business?"This question must be worked out according to each individual's circumstances. Many people start out on a part-time basis in addition to their regular jobs to see how much they can handle. Then when their income reaches a certain level they will switch over and go full time.
2) What are my abilities? To determine your abilities you will have to take an inventory of yourself. Decide what you enjoy doing the most and what you "feel" you would be good at. Examine every possibility and include every skill you have no matter how slight.
3) Is there a market for the product or service I have chosen? Be cautious before you invest any money! Check it out by making inquiries directly to the company, competitors, or firms who are marketing a product similar to the one you are interested in.Test it on a small scale. Check it thoroughly.
4) How long will it take this business to reach the financial goal I have set? It's really a question of knowing how much time you can dedicate to your business, and what your profits will be for that time. From there, a simple addition will tell you how long it might take to reach a particular financial goal.

Starting a business at home is an economical way to start a small business that can easily grow into to a larger one. Many entrepreneurs have proven that you don't need a huge manufacturing plant to develop a successful business. Some of the most successful businesses in existence today started in a spare room or garage. It isn't how you start out that is important.What really matters is that you have the courage to begin.

Take a close look at your interests and abilities, and then decide what type of marketing you want to do. For example, do you want to sell directly to people; or would you prefer selling wholesale to retail outlets? If you prefer doing piecework or assembling items for manufacturers, make certain it's something you enjoy working with. If you enjoy one-on-one sales, then test the product out on your friends, relatives, and neighbours. The object is to find out what has the most appeal.

A good marketing technique is the one part of the business plan that is absolutely essential to its success. In fact, the ability to properly market a product or service is actually more important than the product itself. Even an inferior product can be a financial success if marketed properly. Seek out the advice of everyone in your field. Explain your needs and ask them questions. Experience is the best teacher. With good advice and a saleable product, you should be able to develop a winning marketing plan.

The first place to look for financing is right at home. Take an inventory of items you don't need and have a garage sale. Most people are pleasantly surprised at how much cash can be raised in a single weekend. Next, turn to members of your family or close friends who have faith in you and want to see you succeed. Offer to repay them through profit-sharing. Go to individuals in your community who and know you and believe in your personal worth.If you have a good credit history your banker should consider you a good financial risk. Two other excellent sources would be your local Small Business Administration (SBA) and Chamber of Commerce. SBA has low interest loans available for qualified applicants and your Chamber of Commerce can assist you with referrals and other helpful information.

Anyone who is serious about work-at-home opportunities need only look around them. There are thousands of options everywhere!There are employment opportunities that involve becoming an independent contractor; working on a commission basis; working for a salary; freelancing for pay; getting paid by the hour,receiving pay for each piece assembled; getting paid by the project, or a combination of any of the above. No doubt, what youfinally decide on will depend on your particular needs and interests. Some of the business opportunities are displayed on the ads on the left and below this article.

15 Amazing Ways To Super Charge Your Business

We decided it would be fun to interview 10 of the smartest marketing gurus we know, including 7 multi-millionaires, about the best ways to increase customer and cash flow for just about any business.
What we got were a variety of fresh, innovative ideas -- and once you read them, you will know that they came from a group of folks who have already made it big in businesses of their own.
The following are the "15 Best" ideas for super charging your business, no matter what kind of business you are in.
1. "Same-Old" is out -- Getting attention with something new is in. To get new business, you must strive to be innovative and dramatic. For example, an insurance agency, offered "the biggest steak dinner in town" if it couldn’t save any person money on their car insurance. This challenge was enough to make the telephone start ringing off the hook for days at a time. The customer flow was "absolutely crazy" for days. The bottom line: dozens of new insurance buyers and tons of new cash flow -- and all they had to do was fork out the cost for a half dozen steak dinners!
2. Tight target marketing. The big job in marketing and sales is getting to the right people inside another company. Addressing mail to "Facilities Manager" or printing a "routing slip" on the outside of the envelope is ineffective. Hitting the target is the challenge. Scoring a bull's eye means making contact with the right individuals and is the only way to make the sale. Taking time to be highly targeted in business communication is essential.
3. Be more creative. Pushing direct-mail pieces out the door or sending the newsletter to the mail room isn't doing the job. Ask yourself: "Will anyone be intrigued enough to read the mailer--before tossing it in the wastebasket?" Ask the same question about the company newsletter. A highly creative approach is necessary to be different and distinctive. Creativity costs money. But, if more people read the ad, take time with the newsletter or decide that the offer in a mailer makes sense, you have accomplished the goal.
4. Focus on what customers care about. After listening to the admissions director talk about what should be shown in the school’s new recruiting video, the marketing consultant asked, "Is this what parents and prospective students are interested in knowing?” Suddenly, everyone became less confident. Someone suggested asking the student tour guides what questions the visiting parents and kids asked? Whether creating an ad, a brochure, oral sales presentation, knowing what the customer wants needs and expects is what works.
5. Tell customers how to think about your company. We come to conclusions by making comparisons. If you don't let customers and prospects know why it is in their best interests to do business with you or buy your product, they won’t. The rating of life insurance companies makes an impact on customers. The J.D. Powers' customer-satisfaction survey on cars and personal computer manufacturers influences buying behaviour. Wise companies spend time and effort consciously influencing the way they are perceived by customers, prospects, bankers and stockholders.
6. Make your offers outstanding. Customers are cautious. They don't like being put on the spot; they don't want to make a mistake. This is why offers are essential. "Try it for 30 days...free." "We won't deposit your credit card slip for a month." "Your satisfaction is guaranteed." "Take the car for the weekend and drive it all you want." The goal is to overcome the customer’s reluctance.
7. Be in the right place at the right time. "Why didn't I think of you last week when we bought the new..." Some salespeople simply shrug off such comments. "Oh, well. I can't be in the right place every time." Wrong. Being in front of the customer is today's assignment. Developing a consistent program for staying in front of customers regularly is the challenge. A mix of seminars, newsletters, bulletins, fact sheets, special events and informative articles will keep you in the customers' minds.
8. Name your product or service. One of the best ways to differentiate your products or services from all the rest is to give them distinctive names. A building contractor with expertise in remodelling during off-hours calls himself the "stealth" remodelled. A fuel oil dealer doesn't talk about service--he emphasizes "Comfort Care Service." The idea is to imbue ordinary ideas with new meaning thereby separating your com-pony from your competitors. Make sure, however, that the name appeals to your customers and not just to you.
9. Be relentless. Persistence is power in marketing and sales. Far too many firms fail in their efforts because they don't follow through long enough to produce proper results. Marketing momentum comes from consistent effort. Once you start a newsletter, issue it on schedule. It takes time for customers to comprehend what you are doing and for prospects to get acquainted--and comfortable--with a business.
10. Get rid of the self-serving nonsense. Most company publications, ads, letters, brochures, and other sales materials are filled with words; photographs and information that do nothing more than toot the company’s horn. No one cares that the business says it is the "best," "oldest" or the “biggest." Pictures of the staff are only interesting to the staff. Abetter approach is to ask prospects what they want to know about your company. We doubt anyone will be anxious to see pictures of the CEO, chairman of the board or the executive vice president.
11. Tell them everything you know. Spill the beans, so to speak. Since today’s customers want information, knowledge and helpful ideas, do everything you can to share everything you know. This is the only way to become a valued resource to your customers. When people use your ideas, they will buy what you sell.
12. Be generous. No one wants to do business with firm’s operating on one-way street. Buy a new car and the dealer hands you a 20-cent plastic key holder! It sends a message that this dealer doesn't under-stand his customers. You may forget the car, but you will never forget the lousy key ring! Another auto dealer delivers the new car to your office. What a difference. This dealer sends a powerful message--our customers are important.
13. Make prospect identification your mission. The single most important daily activity in any business is prospect identification. By making prospecting a continuing process, companies produce steady flow of new sales leads. They never stop asking, "Who do we want to do business with if we have the chance?" Then make sure all prospects are entered into a database so they can be cultivated over a period of time.
14. Scrutinize your corporate identity. Yes, how a company presents itself makes a difference. Is the logo appropriate? Is it dated? Does it communicate the right message and the correct image? Is the president the only one who understands it? What about the company colours? Are they reminiscent of the late '50s? Do the letterhead, mailing labels and business cards convey a strong, positive message? Or, are they dull and ordinary looking? If you don't think this is important, your competitors will be thrilled. Corporate identity is the face you put on your company.
15. Write customer-cantered letters. Most business letters have cold, impersonal words. "As per our conversation..." "Pursuant to our agree-meant..." When was the last time you heard anyone talk this way at lunch (other than perhaps a lawyer)? Yet, give the same executives a pen and they become stilted. There is no reason why business letters should not be warm, friendly, conversational, interesting--and customer-cantered. Write as if you were the one reading it. Should a letter end at the bottom of the first page? Yes, if that's what it takes to tell the story? But it may take two, four or six pages. A letter should be as long as necessary and always interesting to the reader.

Making Money Online Really Boils Down to ONLY Two Ways

I always like to break things down into as simple a concept as possible.
So... after all is said and done, there are really ONLY two ways to make money online: 1. By selling your own stuff 2. By selling other people's stuff If you surf the net, you'll find tons of information on this topic, often making things more complicated than it really is.
I currently do not have my own product, so I build my business selling other people's stuff.
Now, it's easy to fall into "paralysis by analysis" especially when you are starting out... looking at one 'opportunity' after another. With a bunch of great looking offers with well-crafted, persuasive copy, it's really easy to get distracted. Trust me, I've been there!
One thing I did learn to do is to keep things simple... and so should you if you're just starting out or looking to make money online. My recommendation is not to make it too complicated (the K.I.S.S. principle is in order here... Keep It Simple Stupid!).
Remember, you're either selling your own stuff, or you're selling other people's stuff.
Of course, there's all kinds of different lead generation and traffic getting strategies that can be used to sell the 'stuff', but it ultimately boils down to this... SELLING - whether it's your stuff or other people's stuff.
OK. I think I've stressed the point enough... =)
So, the question is...
Should you sell your stuff or other people's stuff?
I'd say do BOTH if you can. I don't have my own product yet, so I only sell other people's stuff, but eventually I am going to create my own stuff to sell, and so should you.
Because a lot of the people I follow and learn from who made (and still are making) a LOT of money online do BOTH.
But when you are starting out, you are still going through the learning curve, so it's more prudent to focus on selling other people's stuff so that you can focus on building out your website, blog, autoresponders, etc. and not be bothered with product creation, customer service, shopping carts, merchant accounts, sales letter, etc..
'Start Small, Think Big' is a good advice to follow here.
Start selling other people's stuff as you learn the ropes while generating cash flow from the affiliate commissions, then eventually create your own stuff and focus more on selling your stuff then.
But do note that even the well established 'gurus' who make tons of money online continues to sell other people's stuff because no one can ever create enough products to fulfill all of their customers' needs. So, they continue to sell other people's stuff that's complimentary to their own stuff. This not only creates more cash flow for them, but also helps them to be resourceful and help their customers get what they want.
So, this is what I suggest you do too... no matter whether you are a complete newbie or a seasoned veteran... you should add affiliate income stream to your business.
If you are just starting out, I personally think this is the best place to start. If you're already selling your own products, then this is how you can increase your cash flow with almost no extra work.
