If you want to make momey online, one of the best ways to jumpstart your business is through the RIGHT joint ventures. While I was on vacation in florida, I had several joint venture offers. One of them was an ebook about joint ventures called JV Cash…Anytime.
The author is a homeschooling Dad (like me), so I had to check it out. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. JV Cash…Anytime is a really good read.
In JV Cash…Anytime Rob Richards reveals some of the best ways to find joint venture partners and avoid costly mistakes along the way.
I think that anyone wanting to understand the fundamentals of Joint Ventures would do well to read this ebook.

After getting back from vacation, I decided to make a quick summary of some of the things I want to do in January for my online business. In no particular order here is my todo list for January 2007:
1. Hire a Traffic Assistant
Austin mentioned this site called www.trafficassistants.com to me the other day. I am looking for ways to outsource some of my tasks and this looks like it could be a very cost effective method of bringing in more traffic to my websites. This should free up some time to do other tasks. I do love getting traffic to my sites, so I will still do some work on it myself. It’s just that after I hire a traffic assistant, I won’t be doing as much of it myself. I will let you know how it works out.
2. Get Active on MyBlogLog.com
I joined it a month ago, but haven’t done anything with mybloglog yet. Now that Yahoo has bought it, I should definitely get started making use of it.
3. Do my Taxes
Any volunteers to do my taxes for free?
I am not a big of fan working on my taxes, but it’s something I have to do.
4. Promote our American Idol Blog and Homeschooling Wiki
Our American Idol blog is a pretty decent money maker during the season. Jill will be writing on it a lot. It is one of my favorite blogs, because I am big fan of American Idol and because Jill does the writing.
On the other hand, our homeschooling wiki is the site I want to focus the most on for the first quarter of 2007.
5. Work/mentor/network with Austin of Trust My Mechanic
Austin and I are working on a quick project that takes precedence over all my other work. I figure Austin is making his living online and if he has an idea that might help me get there faster I should try it. I am learning a lot from Austin, and I hope to continue building a friendship with him (as he is a very nice person).
6. Keep up with my Blogs
Keeping up with my blogs can be a lot of work.
7. Make a Solid Business Plan
Goes without saying that this is important.
8. Write my Next Newsletters
I put out a newsletter for an ebook I wrote about website traffic. It wasn’t exaxctly as successful as I had hoped at the time. I would do things WAY differently now than I did at the time I created that ebook. However, it was a great learning experience.
Anyway, I write a free monthly internet marketing newsletter, where I talk about some things that I don’t cover on this blog. This month, I plan on writing about a Search Engine Optimization technique that I use and see ton’s of other top ranking websites use to get higher rankings from the Search Engines.
9. Sort through the JV offers I got while I was on Vacation
I recieved about 4 Joint Venture offers while I was on vacation and I need to determine which ones look the best. They are all Internet Marketing related.
Yes, you read that right. I have to pray about my business. When I don’t pray about my business it seems to just putter along, when I do pray about it doors open up. At least that has been my experience so far.
I have a lot of work left for the rest of this month. The first part of this month was consumed by a vacation, but the vacation reinforced some things that I learned towards the end of 2006 (in particular this and this).

The game claims to teach all about Internet Marketing, earning residual income, affiliate marketing, joint ventures, list building, blogging, podcasting, etc. It also helps you get familiar with terms like wikis, social tagging, etc.
At first I wasn’t sure what to think of it, because it is not your normal Internet Marketing product. However, I am starting to think that I might want to buy it for my two oldest kids. It might be a fun way to teach them about Internet Marketing.
I had never really thought about creating an actual board game to teach others, but it is a very interesting idea. This product is definitely another example of a “Purple Cow“.

Thanks to Nash for letting me know about it.
What do you think about the idea of an Internet Marketing Board Game? Is it something you would want to buy, or do you just want to stick with videos, ebooks, and podcasts?
