    On my way home today I noticed two kids by the road with the coolest little lemonade stand....

    As I pulled over to buy a refreshing cup of 100% Sugarade (kids still think that if 1 cup of sugar is required, 2 cups must increase sales)...I can remember how stoked I used to get when grown-ups would stop by my stand and buy my stuff.

    It got me thinking about internet marketing. Though I've moved up a bit (or down depending on how you look at it) over the years, from peddling lemonade to peddling products online. The lure is still the same. It basically rocks when people hand you money for your stuff.

    I'm no high flying internet Goober, but I dig what I do. Strangely enough every single sale still exites the hell out of me.

    There's just something so insanely cool about going to bed and waking up with more money than when you fell asleep....It's like a 24 hour lemonade stand where I don't have to make lemonade, sit behind a stand, or deal with employees. My stand does all the work....WTF?

    For instance just this past weekend, I went to bed on Friday night with around $3.23 in my paypal account, then woke up Saturday morning and someone sent me $97 while I was asleep....

    Saturday afternoon came around...Almost like magic while I was swimming in my pool someone else sent me $97, this time to my 1shopping account.

    Just before I left too the bar Saturday night someone else decided to send me $97...Perhaps they wanted me to drink more beer (that's how I took it at least)

    Then Sunday snuck up on me...It was as if I were passed out drunk (I think I was). Wanna know something cool though? While I was passed out drunk...Two more people sent me $97...I kinda felt like I was getting paid to drink (I would have dreamed of a job like that in college)

    That's like $500 for 2 days of being a total zero....And the best part is, people will keep buying my "lemonade" like that for the rest of my life....

    So yeah, internet marketing and my killer little automated 24 hour lemonade stand that pays me to drink, swim, and be merry--Basically rocks....And I hope yours does the same.

    You are absolutely correct bro. But don't like that $97 so much that you won't even refund it (if asked for) , most of the online business go down in long way coz they don't honor there refund policy.

    Thanks.

    I refunded my share...About 3% to be exact....That's a rule of mine...Always keep enough on hand for refunds....

    It's a must when your online...1 pissed off customer can demolish your business on the SERP's....
