    This is so perfectly written I had to start a new thread

    Saying you're going to "make money online" is like saying you're going to "make money using phones" or "make money using railways/highways". Everyone else has access to phones and highways too, but like the internet, these are simply communications and delivery channels to move messages and product. Like everyone selling anything else in the world... you still need to have the right message and product or you have NOTHING.
    This is one of the truest and simplest ways of putting what is at the heart of the internet I have ever read. Its an excellent way of putting what I feel is at the heart and soul of the internet.

    I couldn't sum this up any better I think its a brilliant way of expressing the limitations and possibilities of the net!

    That's well said. The internet is a great tool, but you still need a good idea. Its not like the early days when there were only a couple of companies in each sector. Now there are sometimes hundreds, you need to stand out.

    One thing to notice is that competition can be more fierce on the net. At any one time, a competitor's store is just a few clicks away.
