Treci Cauthen

When you take a piece of gold to a pawn shop sometimes they will take a small saw-like tool to scrape the jewelry to find out for sure "Whats Beneath The Surface". Sometimes they find pure gold, silver, or tarnished metal.

Well its the same story when it comes to conducting business on the Internet. Some Opportunities fall far from the mark. Some "Get Rich Quick" schemes will read, "Earn $10,000 Every Month" or "Make A Million Dollars and Retire Early".

"Big earnings with minimum effort" not likely my friends..

Whats Beneath The Surface

"Tarnished metal".

You pay $29.95 for an envelope stuffing job offer. The fee is to set you up with supplies, or, you pay $19.95 for an information package to start your own home business. Only to find that you never hear back from them. If your a busy person you could forget that you ever signed up for the offer. If your a take charge type of person that decides to investigate the matter you may find a disconnected telephone or a bad mailing address.

"The Silver"

Lets say you stumble upon a website that sells electronics, or some other retail products. You have seen there website and it is impressive. They are willing to build you a website just like theirs for $49.95 with a monthly $20 fee for hosting your website. They are willing to pay you 40% commission for items sold.

Hey, you could be on to something here...

But the problem is they leave you hanging. You dont have a clue how to market the product. Some might, give you a list of free classified ads and tell you to submit your site to the search engine.

You burn out quickly and your efforts come to a dead halt.
