					On Disability, Work-at-Home and Internet Rip-Offs
The Quest for True Value
There must be many thousands of people out there, who, like me are in
search of legitimate opportunities to work from home. Not because we are
too lazy to get up early for work, or because we are greedy or
opportunistic, but simply because we are compelled by our unique personal
circumstances to work at home, and more specifically, to do something
that is internet based.
The More Vulnerable
Who are these people who have a very limited choice about their work
environment and the type of work they are capable of doing? Perhaps it is
a single mother with a special needs child; perhaps a middle -aged man who
was retrenched from his job and is unsuccessful in finding alternative
employment due to the specialized nature of his qualifications and
experience. Or perhaps it is someone, like me, who is confronted with a
disability at a later stage in his life. A disability preventing him from
practicing his profession any further. A person whose dreams were
shattered when he was at the pinnacle of his career. A person forced to
go on disability retirement prematurely without the financial security to
afford retirement. That is me and I'm convinced I'm not alone. At the age
of 48 I unexpectedly and abruptly suffered a loss of hearing with such
rapid progression that at 50 I had less than 30% hearing left. I am a
highly qualified social services professional and my entire career had
been all about working with people for people. Not the type of work you
can do when you cannot communicate verbally.
The Potential behind the Disability
I like my computer, though, and I am fascinated by the potential and
power of electronic information and the internet as an information source
and marketing tool. Moreover, I have the ability to string a few good
sentences together and enjoy it to put pen to paper, or fingertips to the
keyboard, for that matter. Hence my venture into a search for a work and
income generating opportunity which is internet marketing re lated.
The Disgrace of Internet Scams
I have spent days on the internet searching for something legitimate, but
have been mainly dismayed at what is being flaunted as instant roads to
riches schemes, requiring you to subscribe and pay without knowing wha t
you will be marketing or what the strategy would entail. Once you've
subscribed (yes, I have been conned out of desperation to find something
real), you discover that it is nothing less than a groundless pyramid
scheme with no substance whatsoever. Shame on the fraudulent inventors
and perpetrators of these scams! The fact that I have been exploited and
conned is of little relevance, what is of more concern to me is that
there must be many vulnerable others whose situation is more desperate
that mine who have been abused and defrauded by these con men and women.
As much as I stand for freedom of speech and the liberty that the
internet provides, as much do I believe that the lack of control over
internet fraudsters erodes the moral fibre of the online community and
stains the enlightenment of the age of information technology.
The Good News: Legitimate Opportunities are Available
At this point I need to caution, however. My tirade must not be construed
as a blanket condemnation of all internet advertised work at home
programs. This article should rather be interpreted as a call to caution,
especially for those who are in a similar situation to me and are
therefore perhaps somewhat more vulnerable than those who have broader
career options.
There are indeed some highly legitimate work at home programs offered on
the internet.
Opportunities through which you can enhance your knowledge and skills and
use it in internet marketing with the potential to produce significant
income. They are often of an affiliate marketing nature, which means you
become an affiliate of a company to market that company's products or
services via the internet. These good companies not only provide you with
all the information you need to market their product, but they also
impart the knowledge, skills and tools to embark on an effective internet
marketing campaign. One site that I can highly recommend identifies and
describes a limited number of real and legitimate work at home
opportunities.
The site about the Top 10 Work at Home businesses and jobs can be
accessed from my Wordpress blog under the same subject as this article.
The programs you will learn about here all have potential to produce
significant income, but not if you are unprepared to put in some effort
or unwilling to explore the myriad free marketing opportunities the
internet provides. The programs will guide you to these opportunities,
but you will have to work them.
I wish you abundance and for new doors to open for you as they have for
me.
