From a Corporate Slave to Building an Online Business – How to Make the Big Leap

The world wide web has indeed become the hub of multi-millionaires whose main income is through Online Marketing. The genius of working online is not limited to your background education, age and your social status, or even your geographical location. The internet provides everyone with equal chances of succeeding and making it big time. I know a lot of people who are younger than me (and most of them are college dropout or people with humble beginnings) and yet they have a bank account with huge earnings like that of Donald Trump. Who would have thought that even a high school student has now equal chances of making money online as that one who graduated with a Masters degree? What a funny world we live in. But surprised as you may be, this is after all the information age – the one who has the information is always going to be ahead of the game and will get rich faster. Donald Trump has built his business empire for years (with sweat and tears). The good news for us is we can do the same with less the sweat and tears and with less amount of time (and just counting months to see the $ instead of years!). Don’t ever think that working online is just a piece of cake. It is not what others made you to believe. It is not as easy as a-b-c! But it is indeed more simple than slaving yourself in the corporate world.So how can you jump-start your online business while you still have that 9-5 job? What is the best game plan? First, evaluate how many hours you can spare a week for online marketing. It could be 4-8 hours a week. It is up to you. You can work at your own pace (as long as you are consistent). The second step is to find a business model for your online business. It is important that you follow one business model until you succeed. Don’t stop until you have not done everything in the blueprint. If during the process you feel that the business model is not suitable for you, just continue and finish it anyway. The biggest mistake that an aspiring online marketer can make is jumping from one program to another – hoping for the easiest and quickest way to make money online. Trust me, I have been there and done that and failed miserably. Don’t make the same mistake I made of chasing the next big thing and wasting a year of my career online reading and learning what is supposed to be the best business model out there and not taking ACTION. As they say, the most common newbie sickness is paralysis due to over-analysis.Now how would you know if you have the right business model? We all know for a fact that the internet is full of scammers and crappy programs. My advice is for you to do your research well. Join internet marketing forums such as the Warrior Forum ( The Warrior Forum for me is the best forum there is for online marketers. Everything you need to learn about internet marketing is laid out on you and you can ask questions and find answers as well. Just make sure you go through the thread first as your question might have already been asked and answered before. The best thing about making money online is there are a whole lot of options to choose from depending on your skills. You are not limited with only one business idea. There are a lot of good online business models you can choose from. Don’t spend so much time finding the “best” business model or the “best” program as this could begin your journey to the island of the lost newbies. Pick one model and get on with it right away. Don’t look back until you have finished what is laid out in the plan. Once you are done, then you can go ahead and find another business model if you are not satisfied with the first one, or if you simply want to add another source of income. Again, one business model at a time. You can rinse and repeat afterward to multiply your income.Once you are earning a decent amount of money on the internet (i.e. income online is now greater than your corporate salary), you may opt to say goodbye to your 9-5 job. Just imagine how life could be different for you if you can work at your own pace. You can work as little as 1 hour a day and still reap the benefit of your effort. This is what you call business on auto pilot. You don’t have to be there 24/7 to earn the money. That is why they say you can earn money while you sleep – literally. But then again, don’t ever think that making money online can make your rich overnight. Treat this as a real business and I guarantee that you will be on your way to financial freedom. Now get started and take ACTION.

Protective Rugby Headguards – Do They Really Work?

International Rugby Board rules prohibit the use of any type of equipment that could potentially cause harm to another player. This rules out metal, hard plastic or any other type of rigid material, with the exception of strictly regulated types of studs on rugby boots. Traditional rugby headguards, also known as scrum caps or ear protectors, are thin cloth caps or headbands with a little padding to protect the player’s ears, which are particularly vulnerable to permanent injury. In recent years, protective rugby headgear with soft padding around the head has become increasingly popular. Greater importance is given to keeping the brain and mental faculties safe, and less to the possible “lack of manliness” that the wearing of such protective headgear might suggest. Although optional is most countries, protective rugby headgear is mandatory in Japan and for some Canadian teams. In Australia, there is currently a somewhat controversial movement to make rugby headguards mandatory for Junior Rugby players. Such headguards have been shown to reduce soft tissue damage and absorb some of the shock of blows to the head. And although studies have shown that protective rugby head wear does not reduce the incidence of concussions, it can reduce the severity of concussions and the length of recovery time.High cost and discomfort of scrum caps are two main objections that many rugby players have raised. Thanks to such up to date technology, rugby scrum caps are now affordable and made with innovative materials that are comfortable, lightweight yet affordable materials that are lightweight, and have a greater ability to absorb shocks. When buying, numerous factors need to be considered. First, the headguard must bear the official International Rugby Board logo. All headguards that have not had the proper approval by the International Rugby Board are not to be used in a rugby match. It is also important that the headguard is comfortable and fits properly. The head guard should fit securely to the head and have cloth laces or Velcro straps that hold it firmly in place. Essential ventilation is also required to add comfort and to ensure hearing. Because rugby headgear is available in many different shapes and sizes, it is imperative for rugby players to try them on before purchase. A headguard that does not fit correctly will be uncomfortable and will be less likely to be worn.Rugby headgear also requires proper care and maintenance in order to be most effective. Prior to each practice or game, laces and straps should be re-adjusted to ensure that the cap fits properly, ensuring it fits tight and secure. After every time used, the scrum cap needs to be be disinfected with a bleach and water solution to keep bacteria and at bay. Rugby headgear must be replaced each year, because even the most durable materials can weaken after repeated assault. Headguards are still not coompulsary in the majority of the world and may well be optional for some years to come. Despite this, contemporary scientific and medical knowledge of the true costs of head injuries combined with comfortable and affordable equipment options may inspire more rugby players to seriously consider protective rugby headgear.
