From the Author
You are the single most important reason I wrote this book. I know there are a lot of people who really want to start a business online, but they may either be afraid or do not really know where to start. I dedicate this book to you. I hope from its pages, you'll find the courage and knowledge to find your own way on the Internet, whether it is a non-profit venture or a for-profit one. You can apply the principles I will share with you to either one. I am writing this introduction mainly to tell you thanks for trusting me and to tell you how this book grew legs and walked out of my office one day! (or out of my mind, I guess)
On my desk, next to my books by greats like Napoleon Hill, Brian Tracy, Andrew Carnegie, Vernon Howard and the like, sits a book that made a huge difference to my young life. It made more of a difference than any of the other ones, and it taught me at a very young age that you just cannot give up your dreams. It is the 1954 edition of Golden Book's "The Little Engine That Could". You may or may not remember this book, but I was quoting it my whole life and never even knew it. It was that story about the little train that wasn't very strong, but she kept saying to herself: "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!" What a great message for anyone, and not just for kids! I hate to say I sometimes forgot these dreams, but my heart would never completely allow me to let go of them. I kept dreaming and daydreaming about them. They usually included being somewhere close to the vicinity of my house for longer periods of time, instead of having to get up and go to work somewhere e! lse everyday, making someone else's dreams come true.
