I said that I would say more about how t increase your wealth, and what programs help you do that.  A while ago I described AWAI which stands for American Writers and Artists Inc.  The website, which I do recommend is:  That is a good place to start if you are interested in a side job while you are working, a full time job when you are ready for that, or extra income when you are retired.

Here are some other resources which I recommend:

The Six Figure Second Income by David Lindahl and Jonathan Rozek.  Published by John Wiley and sons, 2010.  The subheading is: How to start and grow a successful online business without quitting your day job.

This book, available on Amazon, is a clear, specific step by step roadmap for creating, promoting and selling products online.  There are many specific suggestions for promoting your ideas, presenting your ideas, and attracting customers by giving them specifically what they want.  They go on and give you some very helpful information about making money through advertising.  This is a great How To book.

Branding Yourself by Erik Deckers and Kyle Lacy.  Published by QUE in 2011.  The subheading to this book is: How to use social Media to invent or reinvent yourself.  This is a book primarily about being successful in promoting yourself in traditional business, although their discussions also incorporate individual businesses.  This book is about slf promotion, and they give very specific step by step instructions about how to use Linked In and Twitter (for business connections) and Facebook (for social connections).  They start by helping you identify your brand, who you are, and what you want to be known for.  This book is also available from Amazon.
