Webfortunes beckon to all who are willing and are aware of the fact that there are lots of avenues to earn substantial income online the legitimate way. Sometimes you make money directly from the web while the money may come indirectly as well. You may come about some valuable items or resources that may pave way for you to enhance your economic status or pave way for you to upgrade your professional status.
         This was the case with a well known educationist called Professor Raphidimo; a specialist in the study of History and International relations. He was invited to speak to the students of a local secondary school in a week-long event tagged ‘Career Week’ meant to enlighten and prepare the students of the school for great future. The speaker was to show the eager students “How to become great in life”; he was to show them the practical methods that could be adopted by the students in order to tread the path of greatness.
        “In order to become great, one of the effective methods is to study the lives of the great personalities-both the present and the past, and apply some of their worthwhile personal principles to your own life.” He told his totally gripped audience that everything about him changed as soon as he started reading about the great personalities; one after the other. His thinking pattern, reaction to issues, willingness and courage to face life challenges –all changed for better; he asserted.
      He asked the students if they ever heard about any or some of the names of great personalities he was about to mention. As he mentioned each of them the students cheered uproariously. He mentioned such names as Chairman Mao of China, Pandit Nehru and Indira Gandhi, both of India; Winston Churchill of England, George Washington and  J F Kennedy of the United States of America, Nelson Mandela of South Africa, Nnamdi Azikwe of Nigeria, Barak Obama- also of America, etc. On the religious side, he mentioned the Lord Jesus Christ, D L Moody, Wigglesworth, Billy Graham, Rein hard Bonkey and some others.
           “The most interesting part of it all is that you don’t need to spend a fortune to access the information you need about the great personalities that you want to learn about; all you need is to connect to the web and either conduct a search through one of the search engines or go to one of the rich web libraries and you get even more than you need…”

  Webfortunes is about making profits in whatever online business you decide to undertake. The fact is that there are limitless opportunities beckoning on those intending to upgrade their economic life standards and attain ultimate financial freedom.
            Mr. Koziro had been engrossed in deep thoughts as to how or what he could do to attain an enhanced financial status; he even noticed that most of his colleagues at the work place were faring far better than him financially including those who were earning the same salary with him! “I wonder how these people (his friends and colleagues) manage to keep higher economic profile than I; there must be some secrets I am yet to learn…” he thought to himself.
      Eventually, he decided to confide in a close friend called Rodeo who happened to be a junior worker at the company but was apparently on a higher financial level. “I have to be sincere with you,” snapped Rodeo as Koziro watched him in a dejected mood. “Your best bet towards attaining an enhanced financial status is to take up some online jobs that can provide you with supplementary income.”
    “But you know my wife easily gets crossed at anything of that nature.” “Yes, you are right; but the choice is yours-either to take a positive step that can upgrade your lifestyle or to continue with your present dismal condition”; said Rodeo as he stood up to go away from the table that was positioned in a secluded part of a restaurant where that had both sat down to discuss Koziro’s economic plight.
      Madam Koziro had noticed that her husband started spending extra hours in the night by his lap top and she didn’t hesitate to try and find out what could be happening. She walked quietly to him to have a look at what he was up to. “All these questionnaires, what purpose could they be serving?” she asked her husband. “Oh yes, the company is asking each of the employees to give their opinions concerning some matters.” “Your company is demanding opinion on what?” “Yes; this is what we call ‘online survey’ or ‘opinion polls,’” it touches many aspects of the society; Koziro answered his inquisitive (and curious) wife. Since there was nothing indicating criminality about it, she raised no objections.
      The family’s economic life started improving as a result of the supplementary income accruing from the online paid surveys embarked upon by Koziro; it was the ‘easiest option’ he decided to undertake from the options of online business opportunities presented to him by Rodeo- a close friend a few days earlier and he wasted no time in registering with some online paid survey sites.
      Felicitas his wife was amazed to learn that such a ‘simple and plain’ exercise could yield some reasonable income after her husband revealed to her that the couple of hours he spends conducting the online polls on daily basis had been the source of the extra income. “I think I shall like to participate also,” she said frantically to the amazement of her husband and he said, “My friends will be treated to pleasant and great surprises when they hear about the latest development in the family..!”

Web fortunes, a phenomenon for real; is here to stay- permanently. In other words, you can make fortunes on the web; one way or the other- if you so desire and are ready to devote your time and energy to achieving your goal. This assertion was made by an Internet Marketing expert while answering questions from attendees in a seminar where several online business skills were taught to a sizable and enthusiastic audience.
       A man had said earlier, “What can we do to convince people that online businesses are mostly genuine; but there are only few miscreants who are out to swindle unsuspecting business seekers or new comers like many of us here?” The Speaker replied by declaring that online businesses like Website Design, Internet Marketing, Affiliate Marketing, Forex Trading, Email marketing, Online Importation, Blogging, Online Stores, Online Library, Online Paid Surveys, etc are for real and are here to stay permanently. He advised all participants to ‘play clean games’ online so that others will learn from their successes online and change their negative thoughts as regards online business activities.
       A glaring example of such people with negative thoughts concerning online businesses is Madam Felicitas Koziro, who had vowed never to have anything to do with a ‘yahoo-yahoo’ man (It is the term used to describe online fraudsters). She hated to hear anything relating online business to the guts. All she had ever had were stories of people who had been swindled and ruined economically at one time or the other on the web and so she had developed strong apathy, and whenever she heard anyone speaking on the subject matter, she warned people to ‘stay away’ from such an individual.
      Her husband worked for a local manufacturing company with a salary that could barely sustain them comfortably half way to the following month. She was also working for a government establishment as a clerical assistant with her intermediate level of education. Their take-home pay for each month was quite inadequate and the husband had been racking his brain to see where or what he could do to augment their monthly income so as to make life a bit more comfortable…To be concluded in “Webfortunes and…Surprises” part II.

     Talking of web fortunes, you really need to take your time to find out exactly where and how you are going to start off the ground. When your eyes are opened to the vast resources available on the web, the first major problem many people usually face is the difficulty in making the right choice of business model one could or should embark upon.
   However, I have heard experts talk on many occasions about ‘passion’. It is widely believed that those who make fortunes online are those who are really out to ‘give out’ to people either goods or services with passion. In other words, such people are able to envisage some needs and developed the genuine desire to meet such.
       Madam Mariane Pelinga had been operating a jeweler’s shop for close to a decade without much visible improvement or upgrade. In her own words, she described her predicament at such dismal time like this: “Many a times people will come asking such items that I could not easily lay hands on, for example, some ladies may come and ask for Italian made jewels, American brands, Chinese, British, Spanish items…”
    However, the situation changed for the better, or rather; got a boost when she paid a visit to a friend in a fairly distant town, who also operates similar trade. She was greatly surprised, even shocked to see practically a metropolitan collection of jewels from many parts of the world and she didn’t hesitate to ask her friend, ‘How and where did you get the money that took you round the world to make all these collections possible?’
      The friend just smiled and said, ‘Oh, that’s what anyone can do with ease, even you too can do it!’ ‘Tell me you are joking…’ ‘No I am not…’ ‘Then I like you to please show me how…’ ‘Of course I will’. At last, she learned how to make purchases online and that was how she started meeting the needs of those who were looking for one type of item or the other.
    “So this is how I managed to get the business riding higher and higher by the day, thanks to my friend who showed me the hidden fortunes on the web”;  Madam Pelinga said with visible enthusiasm; and in a tone of finality, she added, “Besides the financial benefits (fortunes?) accruing from the trade, I was quite happy that I could henceforth provide the people with what they need right from the comfort of my room…”

  I want to welcome you into the New Year 2014…
It is always great to be alive to witness a new era; indeed, a new era is the projection of the old dispensation. If people were making fortunes from the web in the past year, then more people are expected to do same in the brand New Year, so all those who care should be prepared to take action without further delay.
     A very close friend of mine, John Ridik was thought to be a failure right from his secondary school days being unable to cope with his studies at such low level of education. He managed to reach the final year but didn’t do well in his final examinations. His primary intention after secondary school was to stay back in the locality and practice subsistence farming side by side or rather; in support of his father.
     For more than five years, I didn’t hear anything about my friend again, if anything; I expected to hear something like; he had become a successful local farmer or about to become one. Instead, news filtered round that Ridik has become a ‘Successful Businessman!’ I didn’t believe the rumor at first but I later met him face to face driving past in a posh S U V- in fact, one of the latest models..!
     “I went to the city with an Uncle of mine who introduced me to computer operation as well as the internet”, he said. “Being a bit proficient in computer operation, I was invited to a business seminar based on internet marketing where I was introduced to a man that was to be my mentor”, he continued. Before zooming away in his glistering classy vehicle, he hinted, “Look, I can’t share with you the whole of my experience here; I shall share with you some another time. All you need to know for now is that the web is a very fertile ground where anyone can ‘till the ground’ and make a fortune out of it…
