Format: Paperback
This book really is four in one, and part of me wishes that the author took the time to write and expand on all sections, but on the other hand, I'm glad it's all put together in one tidy package.

Since I'm more into entrepreneurship, this book was recommended to me to help me develop different income sources for my business. The first part of the book was mostly technical tips regarding scammers and Internet information. The fourth part really helped me see beyond my one method of earning money through the business and gave me some good tips into branching out. By far, it was the most useful part of the book for me personally. The middle sections gave real companies and ideas on how I could expand my current offerings through affiliate marketing, selling print-on-demand chachkies, chat-lines for customer support (or charging for consulting) and more. For anyone looking at work at home jobs or just ways to make extra money, sections 2 and 3 are definitely for you. The author gives a LOT of companies to work for, either as an employee or independent contractor.

Overall, this book is extremely useful for the work at home professional or entrepreneur.

Format: Paperback
I've been writing and freelancing online for years, but I found many tips and tricks in this book that were new to me. Bethany covers all the important keys to making a business out of random or freelance jobs, including suggestions for organizing receipts and paperwork, tracking income, job hunting online, income tax considerations and more.

Her wit and personality shine through what could otherwise be a tedious read, and I found myself reading page after page, actually laughing out loud.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Nanci Thomas on November 18, 2010
Format: Paperback
This is probably one of the most informed and well written books for the up and coming entrepreneur I have read lately.

It is concise, to the point, and contains a wealth of information - from how to understand and grasp the vocabulary and use of internet marketing, to what to look for when navigating the pros and cons of starting your own business, be it a franchise, MLM or garage start-up. Written with humor and candor, it is to the point and highly readable. A book for today and today's economy.

Ms. Mooradian is smart, focused and highly resourceful. I recommend buying this book and, if you live in the Emerald City of Seattle, you might even consider attending one of her classes! Nanci, Artist/Photographer

Format: Paperback
Bethany Mooradian breaks down scam information like I have never seen before. Instead of just telling you what scams exist, she leads you step by step in revealing information about the Internet and scammers. This book has 4 parts, and the first part is essential to anyone who gets online. Bethany explains what an IP address is, and how to find out the person (or company) behind the numbers. She explains marketing tricks that scammers use to prey on our senses, and gives us tools to use to research companies fully. Not just through a Google search, but actually researching domain information and registration.

The second and third parts of the book deal with finding random ways to make extra money, and real companies that offer flexible jobs or ones you can do from home. The fourth part of the book deals with starting your own business, brainstorming ideas, and motivation. It's a very thorough book, a quick read with a ton of useful information.
