lol ... the startup costs for that might be a little high :o

Maybe you should try developing your own website. If you already know HTML/etc it won't be too tough. If you don't, you'll be learning a useful skill along the way. ;) Costs would be about $8.95 for a domain name for a year, and $5/month or so for webhosting. (Or I've heard some people around here give free domain hosting if you ask :shifty:) You could use GeoCities or something, but most of the reliable affiliate programs (ie how you make money) won't accept a site unless it has its own domain name, is well designed, has some decent traffic, etc.

PS. As fast food goes, McD's aint too bad. I like McD's a lot more than, say, Burger King (ugh). I can't recall ever eating at Arby's ... :cuccoan:

Designing websites is a very profitable business. At first, I only paid $20 for 2 years for my domain, then I got free professional hosting. Once I made enough money from that and started getting more visitors, I simply upgraded to a paid plan with the same host. It takes a little while to get your site making money, but in the end it's worth it. I'm makin a good amount of money, even when I left my site untouched and without updates for over 4 months I got a steady income.

The hard part is getting visitors... it will also take a while to learn about web design. It took me about a year of teaching myself to fully grasp the concepts.

Are you looking to work at a day job and make some money on the side, or will this be your full-time job? If it's the former, the only thing that comes to mind right now is selling stuff on eBay. I hear you can get a pretty good profit there.

Do you have any certain skills or training? Maybe you could find some kind of business doing whatever it is you're good at.

Buy old crap, fix it and make it look better, and sell it for more. Like make white t-shirts less white.

Good idea the white T-shirts, the markers: no.
Better idea and garanteed succes: organise a wet T-shirt contest.
Make it with preselections-1/8 finales-1/4 finales-1/2 finales and finale.
Organise it between cities / countrys........
Gamer_4.9 will certainly help you out................. :laugh:

Or put rings and stuff on the t-shirts. America is a bit far away for me. But maybe uitgedostraider can help you.
