Internet marketing is capable of creating a very nice income and has made some people wealthy. However it is not as simple as some would want us to think. We have all seen many websites that promise we can make thousands of dollars a month but each of those site will have a disclaimer written in. The truth of Internet marketing is that there are very few people who actually succeed and the dropout rate is very high. That leaves us with the question can stay at home moms actually succeed. The answer to the question is yes but it will not be easy.
The dream of owning a home based business working on the Internet is one that a lot of people have. There are many reasons why people would rather work from home instead of a regular 9-5 job. Job satisfaction, lack of time for their family, financial restraints all push people to look for a better way to make a living. For most life is not easy and it is a constant struggle. Most families today have to rely on two or three incomes to simply get by and most live paycheck to paycheck. The thought of saving a few dollars for a rainy days doesn’t even exist. Holidays, vacations and even routine family fun times take a back seat to the homes finances.
The Internet seems to provide the answer to the daily struggles. There are millions who go online to look for needed information and to make an online purchase. At one time the Internet was a foreign place and few dared to pull out their credit card and make a purchase. The fear of having information stolen was the biggest hinderence to shopping online. Those times have changed and today millions of people buy thousands of products everyday without giving it much thought. Making online purchases is something most of us do every day because we have become comfortable with it. We know from the events in our lives and our online adventures that people are making large sums of money on the Internet. It is the thought and idea that we can do it to and that we can live our dreams and the Internet is the answer.
Because of this many stay at home moms and others look to the web wanting to get a piece of the action and make their living with an online business. Why not, every where we look we see advertisements for companies promising to make us thousands a month. Many state they have a passive income system that with very little work will make you money month after month. The reality is nothing will make you money if you are not willing to work for it.

It simply means you have to have a dream and you have to have set goals and you have to be determined that you will reach them. Your mindset and determination is what separates those who make it big and those who do not.

Some people find it impossible to write an article or even a simple blog post. But these are things that must be accomplished along with many others if you want to build a strong successful online business.
