Who wants to be a millionaire? Okay, who doesn't want to rake in a few extra dollars, especially in the face of more than $4 a gallon gasoline? I know I do. And with the advice offered in Scott Fox's "Internet Riches The Simple Money-Making Secrets of Online Millionaires" I just might be able to.
For less than the price of a couple of lattes, (Fox says for less than $25 you can get your business up and rolling) those with an entrepreneurial spirit can go online build a website and get the ball rolling on making that extra million. Whether you're offering goods or a service for "sale" you can use the internet to your ultimate advantage for getting the word out, finding customers and building a buzz for what you have to offer.
Fox offers hints, tips, checklists, and real-world examples of those who have made the leap. He writes that "websites are a great way to turn hobbies into money making businesses. If your site offers value, it's likely that some of the 1.3 billion people now online will be interested in your products or services, no matter how niche-oriented they are." As an example he points to a woman who sells toys for parrots.
