    The eBook is 72 pages long and contains NO affiliate links. You may download it and use it for your personal use or give it away to others, but you cannot sell it or change the contents.

    Enjoy.

    Thanks, Mr. Wonderful...what a great screen name and tag line!

    I was thinking of charging for it since it is 72 pages, but most of the info can be found for free if someone wants to do enough searching...so, I decided to make it free. I just thought this would put the info into a nice "neat" package for a newbie to add to his/her library.

    Your feedback is appreciated.

    Jim

    I haven't read it all but for what I have read, it is very interesting and really well written. The exact opposite of some ebooks sold on the internet for not few dollars, containing lots of stupid things about how to get money fast.

    Thank you!

    Very well done Jim! That's one of the better ebooks I've seen for a while.

    I do have some constructive criticism/feedback for you though:

    In the first chapter you make reference to Norton and McAfee when talking about Virus Scanners, but in the following section on firewalls you don't mention any. I'd suggest referencing Black Ice Defender and Zone Alarm since they are the top software firewalls for home use right now.

    And the other thing is that towards the end of the book you mention zoning laws for home-based businesses. Just something to add (this actually happened to me) - if you are renting a place, you may not qualify for a business license if the suite you are renting hasn't been registered with the government. I wasn't actually allowed to list my home address as my business location because my land lord hadn't registered the suite, so I had to rent an office before I could get my license.

    Hi Discreet,

    Thank you for the very constructive feedback. I appreciate it. I have made note of your suggestions and will incorporate them if I revise the eBook.

    Since I am very heavy into affiliate marketing, I am thinking of expanding it to include a chapter just for affiliate marketers....you, know, there are a lot 'flying monkeys' and 'hypnotic poppies" in this here jungle! ;)

    I have to tell you, I have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback and positive criticism that I have received across a few forums, PM's and EM's....since this is my first venture into compiling an eBook.

    Jim
