3 Reasons Not to Start an Online Business

You have seen all the headlines telling you that you can be rich, work only a couple hours a week, take a luxurious vacation and of course the photo’s of the sports cars and the mansions! Is it all true? Is any of it true? Is it possible to have all those things? Sure…win the lottery! OR…start an online business. But wait, the title says I am supposed to give you 3 reasons NOT to start an online business. OK, here they are:1. The Economy Stinks. (I could have put better and more descriptive adjectives there than stinks…but I’ll keep it clean) Yeah, the economy is awful and no one is going to be spending any money to buy things online so why should I start an online business now. Because…with so many people out of work and not being able to find a job, they are looking online to find work! Unemployment is a major problem for people. Find a way to solve it for them and you are one rich person! Taking paid online surveys or data entry jobs usually only requires start up fees of under $50. E-books can be bought for very low costs and can have a lot of information in them on how to make money online. Most people will spend that amount even if they are out of work. Also, there are a lot of entrepreneurs who have free newsletters, reports or e-books that can help you get started for free. So the poor economy is no reason not to start an online business!2. No Time. I know, you are very busy with work (if you have a job), the kids and their sports and school work or activities (if you have kids), you have activities to get to…the gym, maybe you play a sport or whatever, work around the house needs to get done…yada, yada, yada! Does the term “excuses” ring a bell! No one has time in today’s ridiculously busy schedules so where are you going to find the time to work on a home business? You have to make time! Yes, it IS possible to find a few extra hours a week to spend on your business. To start, I think most people over dramatize their “busy” schedules. How many of you spend an hour a day on Facebook or other sites, just searching around? The best thing to do is to set aside an hour a night (and I know you can) and work on an online business instead of socializing. In fact, social networking is a big part of the online business world so you can still do that but now you can get paid while you do it! Don’t use time as an excuse not to start an online business.3. Attitude, Confidence, Belief, Etc. OK, I convinced you that for a few bucks you can find information on online businesses and that the economy isn’t a factor. You now found some time to do the work. So the other reason you shouldn’t start an online business is you just don’t think you have what it takes to succeed! You don’t believe that you could make a lot of money online or you don’t think that others really do have the kind of success they tell you they do. OK, truth…you won’t be rich in a week. However, every successful entrepreneur has started at the exact same position as you are now and there are some very wealthy people in this world because of their online business. The difference between the rich and the not rich is attitude, desire, motivation, belief, confidence etc. Stop thinking you can’t and start thinking you can! Yea, you’ll fail from time to time…who hasn’t! If you want a successful online business that will allow you to work at home, be your own boss and have the freedom to do whatever you want in this world…all you have you have to do is believe in yourself and have the confidence that you will succeed.The beauty of the Internet is that it allows anyone to have a successful online business or home based business. It is not prejudiced, biased, it doesn’t care where you came from or where you are, how much money you have or what kind of education you have. All you need to do is take action and let your customers decide if the pictures you posted of the sports car next to the mansion are yours or not…

Ice Hockey

Great Britain and France are the origins of Ice Hockey. The first evidence of ice hockey goes back to 500 years. Many people believe that, field hockey players made some adjustments in field hockey, so that they could play during cold and icy winter months. The origin of the word hockey is perhaps the French word ?hoquet? denoting a ?bent stick?.Ice hockey was first introduced in North America by British sailors, who arrived at Nova Scotia. At almost the same time, students at McGill University in Montreal also began playing ice hockey. In due course of time, a small ice hockey club, with four teams, was formed in Ontario. It gradually began growing, and in a short time, clubs from different cities started playing against each other. Lord Stanley of Preston, an English Governor General, recognized the ability of these early players and teams created a unique silver bowl, to give as an award to the best amateur ice hockey team. This was the commencement of the Stanley Cup.Earlier, an ice hockey team used to have nine players, but later the number was reduced to seven. Each team would have two defensive players, a goalie, and a ?rover?, who played the whole rink. The first professional ice hockey league was formed in 1904, in Michigan. It broke up three years later. Then, three years after that, the National Hockey Association (NHA) and the Pacific Coast League (PCL) were established. At the end of First World War in 1917, NHA became the National Hockey League and in late 1920s, Pacific Coast league was disbanded. Initially, there were only ten teams.An ice hockey stick is little less curved than a routine hockey stick, and may be made of wood or a modern composite material. Ice hockey players use a solid, vulcanized rubber disc, called puck, which is to be hit with a stick towards the goal net. They also use unique skates that have blade grips for facilitating contact with ice. With thirty teams in six divisions, all over the U.S. and Canada, ice hockey has become to be a well-liked sport.
