While you are deciding what business venture to start, why not give Affiliate Marketing a chance? Creating an affiliate business is easy and FREE. The companies pay you! Your primary task is to refer customers and buyers to companies you sign up to be an affiliate for. You do not have to have a website, but why not start one? It's not difficult these days, and having your own website offers a myriad of opportunities to sell multiple products.
The name of the game is Multiple Streams of Income. Try out one or more affiliate companies until you find the one you're most interested in. A few examples are ClickBank, LinkShare, Commission Junction, and even Amazon. The key is to find a good niche and then offer good information to your website visitors. Then, as you write your information, include links to the products you are selling, but avoid the hard-sell approach. Your visitors will leave and possibly never return. They came to look for good information.
Probably the most desirable trait you can possess is patience. A real business does not happen overnight. You have to work hard to gain trust. If you offer great information, then your traffic will grow.
Now go for the dream of kissing your day job goodbye! And remember, Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained!
