        1.  Welcome and Update from the Editor
        Hello again and a warm welcome to all new subscribers!

        I realized this week that the autoresponder for new
        subscribe requests was on the fritz so many of you who have
        signed up in the past couple of weeks may not have received
        a welcome message.  Apologies! If this is you, you also
        missed out on the two free e-books that are made available
        to all new subscribers as a thank-you for joining our group.
        You can pick them up right here:

        Others of you may have received multiple welcome messages
        even though you subscribed long ago!  This has only happened
        to one person that I know of, but if there are more,
        apologies if you, too, have been deluged.

        Starting this week, and following the excellent suggestion
        of my beloved, I am adding some links to additional
        resources for the home-based and online business ideas of
        the week.

        Remember, this newsletter is for YOU!  If you have comments
        or suggestions for topics you would like to see addressed,

        subscribers, I want to hear from you!  Please send comments,

        and functional; personal coaching and goal setting; planning,
        packing and unpacking for relocation; garage and estate
        sales; organizing children and teenagers (yes, you can
        actually PAY someone to do this!); errands and personal
        shopping; computer organizing and training; setting up filing
        systems and developing paperflow systems; information
        management systems; accounting and bookkeeping; filing;

        piles; paying bills; developing procedures manuals; preparing
        medical insurance forms; event planning; disaster
        preparedness; photo and memorabilia organization; time

        The clients of professional organizers are as varied as their
        services and include individuals in their homes, small and
        large businesses, clients with disabilities, clients with
        attention deficit disorder or chronic disorganization

        3. Online Business Idea of the Week - Restaurant Booking
        Here's an online business idea for anyone who lives in a
        "restaurant town".  Depending on the size of your city, you
        could do this on a local-area basis or city-wide.  The idea
        is to bring restaurants and diners together during slow
        restaurant booking times.

        As we all know, if you go to your favorite restaurant on a
        Friday night, it's a lot harder to get a table than it is
        on a Tuesday.  What if you, as a diner, could get a great
        deal on a restaurant dinner on a Tuesday?  Would you take
        it rather than waiting until Friday when you may or may not
        get a table and when you definitely won't get a special?
        Even if you wouldn't, plenty would.
        What if you, as a restaurateur, could get more diners in on
        a Tuesday when you have low bookings by offering a dinner
        special that evening.  Would you do it?  If you're open
        for business anyway, sure.

        The question is, how does the diner find out about the
        special and how does the restaurateur get the word out?

        Here's where your online restaurant booking service comes
        in.  Approach all of the restaurants in the area you want to
        target and invite them to participate in your service.  The
        restaurants who participate will need to have internet
        access.  Essentially, all you need to do is have a page for
        each restaurant on your website, complete with photo,
        description, menu and "hot specials".  The restaurant emails
        you each day with the day's specials and you post these on
        that restaurant's page on your website.  You do this with
        every restaurant on your list until you have a databank of
        restaurant pages.

        4. Article - Overcoming Isolation in Your Home Business
        By Elena Fawkner

        Like most people, when you think about what it would be like
        to work from home, you probably think of the obvious
        benefits such as working your own hours, not having to face
        a stressful, tedious commute every day, actually seeing what
        your garden looks like in daylight hours, not having to
        answer to a boss, being home when your children are, working
        in a comfortable environment and so on.  These are, of
        course, some of only many wonderful benefits of working from

        Before long, though, you may begin to think back to your
        previous life and realize you actually miss those umpteen
        visitors who were constantly interrupting you when you were
        trying to work, the walk in the park at lunchtime with your
        best work-friend, drinks on Friday night after work, and
        being able to run an idea past a colleague for instant,
        valuable feedback.

        Now, everything is just, well, quiet.  And there's no-one
        down the hall to go visit who's over age four.  You find
        yourself checking your email constantly, wanting to connect
        to someone.  You find yourself wishing the phone would ring.
        You!  The person who, when you worked in a job, cursed
        constant telephone interruptions and thought voice- and
        e-mail was the greatest invention since sliced bread.
        Welcome to another reality of home-based business ... home

        Here are some ways to avoid the isolation trap when running
        a business out of your home:

        Establish a Structure
        Nothing is surer to reinforce feelings of isolation as time
        that stretches as far as the eye can see like a straight,
        one lane highway through a flat, barren landscape.  Don't
        start each day without a plan of what you intend to do.  You
        need to structure your time so that it is not some endlessly
        vast terrain you must traverse alone.  So write a to-do list,
        preferably at the end of the day before, so that when your
        work day starts you get productive straight away, before the
        isolation blues have a chance to take hold.

        Reach Out
        When writing your to-do list, make sure you include at least
        two things every day that require you to interact with
        another person.  Networking is a vital skill, whether you
        work for someone else or for yourself.  So make contacts
        with people who can add value to your business, as well as
        connecting you with the outside

        Joining a professional group or club, attending seminars and
        trade shows relevant to your business are all great ways to
        meet new people who have similar interests and challenges.
        Participate in the activities organized by these groups and
        take a good supply of business cards with you.

        Establish Joint Ventures
        Another way to keep the isolation blues at bay is to joint
        venture with other home-based business owners.  Team up with
        other businesses that offer complementary services to your
        business.  Not only will you send additional business each
        other's way in the form of referrals, you are establishing
        professional relationships with your joint venture partners.

        Organize Your Own Functions
        Once you have joined various associations and formed joint
        venture partnerships, take the initiative and organize
        functions that bring you all together.  These could be
        business-oriented networking sessions or purely social
        get-togethers such as a barbeque in the local park. Either
        way, you are forging a relationship with people in your new
        arena, just as you did when you were working in a corporate
        office.  The only difference is that now you must take the
        initiative to forge these relationships.  These are not
        people you are going to be seeing every day at the office.

        Join a Gym
        You are, of course, health conscious and physically active,
        right?  Of course you are!  So, why not kill two birds with
        one stone ... stay fit and meet new people.  If you
        establish a routine that allows you to be at the gym at the
        same time every day, you will run into many of the same
        people and get to know them.

        Use the Internet
        Making online friends is another way of staying connected
        with the outside world.  Be very disciplined here though.
        It's way too easy to spend a lot of work time on social
        email exchanges and in chat rooms.  Don't fritter away your
        time, but do seek out and maintain internet friendships.

        Background Noise
        Sometimes, it's only silence that reminds you you're alone.
        If you come from a corporate environment, your workday was
        punctuated by the constant background noise of telephones
        ringing, other people's conversations, hysterical laughter
        from the other end of the office and lunch trolley pages
        over the intercom system.  If you find absolute quiet
        irksome, turn on the radio and have it playing in the
        background while you work.  Talk stations are good because
        it's like having other people in the next room, but if you
        find yourself becoming so engrossed with the talk topics
        that you stop working and start listening, switch to a
        music station.

        There is no avoiding the fact that making the transition
        from a corporate environment to a home-based business is
        just that ... a transition.  Most people will have to
        grapple with the isolation monster in the early days of
        their work-from-home career.  But, as you can see, there
        are many ways of keeping isolation and loneliness at bay
        just by reaching out and forming new associations.  Remember,
        just because you work alone doesn't mean you have to go it

        ->Freelance Writers Wanted
        The Strip, an alternative newspaper, seeks freelance writers
        who can generate feature and department articles aimed at
        the 18-35 demographic. We're looking for writers who can
        develop intelligent, thought-provoking, truly exceptional
        pieces on a wide range of subjects. We're particularly
        interested in writers who can cover music, current events,
        culture/subculture, the arts, entertainment, and issues
        critical to our demographic. Opinion/subjective pieces
        welcome. Magazine feature style preferred over newspaper
        style; off-the-wall, unusual, and potentially controversial
        stories favored over run-of-the-mill stuff. We prefer
        original material but will consider reprinting. We抮e a
        monthly print-only paper, with deadlines the first of each
        month; pay only upon publication. E-mail story pitches, info
        about yourself, and writing samples to No attached files, please.

        ->Copy Editor for Technical Materials
        I'm seeking editor on a contract basis to do the first round
        of copy editing on technical material. The material is
        written by an author who speaks English as a second language.
        The material is in English, but it has certain syntax
        problems (e.g., correct use of singular vs. plural, and
        present tense vs. past tense). In addition, it is somewhat
        "stream of consciousness" and needs to be tightened up a bit.
        The copy editor I seek will not be required to polish this
        text to the point of it being publishable; rather, the goal
        is to ensure that all sentences within it are constructed
        with reasonable English syntax. It will then proceed to
        further stages of rewriting by other parties.

        The material is going into a book published by a first-tier
        computer-book publisher. Between now and the end of November,
        there will 400-500 pages of text that need this treatment.
        This can be divided between more than one copy editor, if

        A technical background will be handy but definitely not
        essential. The ability to do this work on a PC running Word
        97 is essential. Location is a non-issue. While the person
        chosen will not get "editor" credit on the book, they will
        be thanked by name in the acknowledgements (and on checks
        before that!). Rates are negotiable.
        If you are interested, please respond with a resume, brief
        writing sample (1 page is sufficient), phone number, and
        best times to call.  Thank you.

        ->Internet Research Librarian

        Solutions, Inc., is looking to add another Internet Research
        Librarian to our team. This is a full-time, 100%

        http://www.hrlibrary.com/ The ideal candidate will not
        only have a masters' degree in library science, but will

        6. Guest Article - A Day in the Life of a Newbie Internet
        by Osama M.

        I would like to share this story with you. It is not only a
        true story; it is a story that happens a thousand times
        every day, in the world of cyberspace.


        "It was a beautiful April morning, the sun was shining like
        a million stars, and I thought to myself, "what a day to do
        something really good".

        With this notion in my head, I started searching my
        thoughts.  What "good thing" have I been meaning to do for
        quite some time, but couldn't get myself to start?

        Yes, I know, I have been browsing the net for a couple of
        years now, I even made my own free Home Page, and it turned
        out very nice. But it seems there is a lot more to that
        black hole called the WWW than just reading news and making
        beautiful home pages hosted for free.

        I have been reading in the magazines and also on TV that
        Internet business is booming, and people are making lots of
        money easy and fast.

        Yeah, they said that the Internet would make more
        millionaires than any other business media. Who said that?
        Oh yes, that Windows guy, Bell gates, I guess it must be
        right then."

        Those were the thoughts of an Internet Marketer in the
        making. He heard that on the Internet you can make money
        fast and easy, so instinctively he decided to share the

        The gates of Hell:

        Our newbie friend goes to his PC, logs in to the start page,
        which has this tiny search bot, types {Internet business}
        and hits (go).

        The moment he did the gates of hell opened before his eyes.
        He was flooded with lists after lists of business sites,
        hard to choose, hard to decide where to start.

        Like all average people, with average common sense, he
        decides to go alphabetically. It makes sense, doesn't it?

        "Waw, what is all this?", the newbie thinks to himself.

        "It is true, I can make millions here. Look at all these
        free offers, free business opportunities, selling, actually
        promoting someone else's products and making so much money!"

        The newbie was overwhelmed by the endless number of business
        sites, and the amazing offers they keep throwing in his
        face, all want to give him money and make him rich fast,
        from affiliate programs that pay for referrals, to
        downlines that pay for nothing.

        He decided to join a number of those.

        Since that sunny beautiful day in April (it is October now)
        many days have passed, some are sunny, others are not, and
        many are even nicer than that day when he first opened
        Pandora's Box.

        Why me?:

        The newbie was still sitting by his PC, stiff neck, back
        ache, hours and hours of FFAs, BBSs, Classifieds, Safe
        lists, E zines, tons and tons of mail in his mailbox, yet,
        the money is but a trickle.

        Sad as a widow on her wedding night, the newbie asks

        "What happened? Where did I go wrong? Where is the money?
        Well there must be a secret I don't know. After all so many
        people are offering to teach me the secrets of the trade,
        the back alleys and all the tricks."

        Here starts another memorable day in the life of the newbie.
        The day of seeking the ultimate secret that will make him
        drown in Greenback, and make his friends green with envy.

        Our friend embarks on his aimless journey to find the
        secret.  He gradually goes from back ache, to pocket drain,
        paying a hundred dollars here, thirty others there, another
        two hundred. Well, why not, he is collecting the secrets of
        the trade.

        One day, with sore eyes and after long sleepless nights, he
        decides to stop the hunt and start enjoying the booty,
        reading all the stuff - secrets- he has accumulated over the
        past few weeks.

        A self-declared confinement was in force, the newbie not-to-
        be-disturbed, he is now harvesting the seeds of success
        and money making made easy, with how-tos and what-nots.

        The food was piling up outside his door, day in, day out, sun
        after sun and moon after moon.

        "The ultimate secret":

        One day not too soon, the door was opened, and out came the
        newbie 10 years older-cum-wiser, unshaved, but laughing his
        heart out hysterically, shouting, "Eureka, I found the
        ultimate secret to success on the Internet".

        Well, what was that secret?

        Answers the newbie: "The secret is, there is no secret! What
        has been happening to me all along, this is the secret!" And,
        in short, it has two elements:

          Element #1. The mass numbers of people like me, with the
          desire to make money fast and easy, or find the information
          they think will change their lives;

          Element #2. The power of persuasion on the part of the
          marketers to convince people like me that their particular
          product, service, info, is what they are looking for, is
          what they really, really need, and if they don't get it now,
          there will be no more beautiful April days or sunshine in
          their lives.

        The newbie, who is no longer a newbie now, rather a veteran,
        has learned the lesson:

        Successful businesses give the right people the products,
        services and info they need, while effectively using the
        power of persuasion to convince them they need them.

        The newbie-cum-new Internet Marketer is now on his way to
        fame and fortune, he even has his own affiliate program,
        where others are promoting his own stuff. What a feeling.

        "Long days and sleepless nights, back ache and sore eyes,
        well, it was all worth it" says the new marketer, who
        thought he had actually discovered the secret of Internet
        business success.

        What he actually learned though, was this simple, yet
        compelling fact:

        There is no such a thing as get-rich-quick-and-easy on the
        net. It is just like anything else in life, clear vision,
        knowledge, patience, hard work, perseverance and, above all,
        the ability to actually love what you do, enjoy doing it,
        and enjoy the good it does for others.

        Am I preaching? I think not, just a story I wanted to share
        with you.
