Here are some commonly asked questions that get asked when budding entrepreneurs start their own internet business.
What Does 'The Money Is In The List' Mean?
It will not be long after you've started an internet business before you come across the phrase 'The money is in the list'. This simply means the people that you have on your database, or email list, are the people who are most likely to buy from you.

What Is Affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is a popular internet business model. It's like being a commission-paid sales person.

Today, almost everything in our lives is related to money. No matter how we try to avoid the subject, it still remains as pertinent as ever before. To understand money, I believe we need to look into its history for lessons to learn. Only with that can we translate these lessons into personal meaning for application and prepare for the future.
As many of you know, money began as bartering where people exchanged items they had for things they wanted. For example, a dairy farmer exchanging milk for clothes. As time progressed, people found out that it was hard to measure relative values of an item. For example, how much milk can be traded for a quantity of clothes? Also, it was slow, hard and time-consuming because for personal gain, people would bargain for the best possible trade. This created the need for a more efficient way of transaction, commodity money.
One of the first few forms of commodity money were gold and silver coins. They were used as these were tangible items representing value. As people found this way to measure values of items, trading became much faster. However, another problem arose because carrying too much of them was inconvenient and could attract attention of thieves. This led to the establishment of banking.
To keep these valuables safe, wealthy people began to appoint individuals with the role of safekeeping them. In return, these individuals issued receipts to these wealthy people as a representation that they owned the valuables. Here, money has evolved from something that held value into a derivative of value. With money becoming compact, people just had to trade with paper receipts instead of bulky items like gold and silver. People could also trade in different places as bankers in these places only had to balance the trading accounts between the buyer and seller with debits and credits against the receipts. This greatly facilitated the movement of money from point A to B where it is needed. This was the start of prosperity in many areas as speed of business was significantly improved.
However, as the bankers held more commodity money like gold and silver in their vaults, they discovered that their clients had little use for them. Here, brilliant individuals brought banking to the next level, from storing wealth to lending wealth and charging interest on the loan subsequently. Now, bankers could earn money from money they did not own.
Naturally, as greed came into the equation, bankers began making loans for money more than what they stored, giving rise to fractional reserve receipt money. For example, lending $2000 in receipts when you only have $1000 worth of commodity money, creating a fractional reserve ratio of 2:1. They then collected interest on this expanded money supply and this greatly increased their profits.
With an increased money supply, people had more money to spend and consumption rose, leading to economic growth according to Keynesian theory. However, this also created economic volatility because some greedy banks loaned out …

Looking for an affordable rate of travelers car insurance can be difficult unless you find the right quote. Many insurance companies will charge a higher premium if you wish to be covered while abroad or driving overseas for break and collision cover. You can avoid this by finding the best quote available to you online, which is often cheaper than the off-line or telephone quotes you may find.
To make the most savings, the most effective thing to do is to compare several quotes from several different providers. Be warned though, some comparison sites are front ends for established insurance companies which means that you may not really be obtaining the best deals as the comparison site will certainly be promoting their sponsor. The most affordable rate of foreign car insurance will be available to those who are experienced drivers and are driving moderate rather than overly powerful cars. You can also make savings by arranging your breakdown or collision cover well in advance of your trip or vacation to abroad rather than at the last minute. You will find that the premium charged by the insurance company increases expecially if the cover needs to be provided in an emergency.
Foreign breakdown cover and motorcar insurance becomes more affordable the more you plan for it. Last minute planning or not comparing enough quotes could leave you with a large premium to pay rather than an inexpensive charge that you can easily include in your budget, making your trip abroad a worry free and enjoyable experience. …
