Well, I’m sure you’ve all seen the stories about people making millions online with hardly any work, so have I.

So, being an entrepreneurial type of person, I thought I’d check it out.

Firstly, it’s the old adage, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. There’s definitely a lot of fluff around and I’m sure some people have made lots of money out of all of that fluff. You can actually spend hours and hours of your life just sifting through stuff online and going from one story to the next, until you meet yourself coming back and by then it’s daylight again. Believe me, I’ve done it, a few times!

Having said that, I do believe that there is a genuine opportunity to make money online, many opportunities in fact, but you must have your wits about you. Obviously you can set up your own website and sell products that you own, much like a bricks and mortar store, but I’m thinking more specifically of other methods where you do not have to store and ship inventory.

There are many guide books and courses on this exact subject and I’ve spent a fair bit of money on them so far, all in the course of my research you understand (just in case my girlfriend is reading this). My aim over the coming weeks and months is to sort the wheat from the chaff.

Just as a side note: Now what’s interesting is that this is a global blog and I very much hope that it will be read by peopleĀ from all corners of the world, so that got me thinking, is a quotation like ‘sort the wheat from the chaff’ an exclusively British term or will it be understood by those outside of the good ole UK. I’d love to know :-)

I’d love to hear about your experiences online, good or bad. Oh and don’t forget to let me know about that ‘sort the wheat from the chaff’ thing. Keep smiling!
