Two years ago, when The Rat Race Rebellion began tracking at-home jobs, there were 30 scams for every legitimate opportunity. Resume Many times throughout college, you will need to be able to share your accomplishments. During the college application process, your past experience should form the basis for your essay and will certainly come up during any interviews.

Podcast #009 – Kick-start Your Own Business StevePavlina.com Personal Development for Smart People podcast #9 This podcast will give you some tips on how to kick-start your own business, especially a part-time, home-based business. Incidentally, I know the iTunes podcast subscription for this podcast isn’t working. You can still subscribe to it, but for some reason it isn’t displaying all the previous shows. I haven’t changed anything with the feed, so I contacted iTunes support (twice) to ask them why the iTunes listing suddenly stopped working and received no response after two weeks. I guess I’m supposed to “think different” if I want to get in touch with an actual human being.

How to Build a High-Traffic Web Site (or Blog) Since posting my 2005 traffic figures recently, I’ve received many questions about how I was able to start this web site from scratch and build its traffic to over 700,000 visitors per month (Jan 2006 projection) in about 15 months – without spending any money on marketing or promotion. Building a high-traffic web site was my intention from the very beginning, so I don’t think this result was accidental. My traffic-building strategy isn’t based on tricks or techniques that will go out of style. It’s mainly about providing genuine value and letting word of mouth do the rest.

Don't Follow Trends: Set Them! Advertisement Your website represents your brand. New visitors will form a first impression of your service or product within seconds of arriving at your website, and the visuals, layout and aesthetic will play a large role in shaping that impression.
