Marshall Brain, creator of the most excellent How Stuff Works has posted a presentation he gave in which he talks about how to make a million dollars. The presentation is a nice, light read and is generally of the “motivational” sort, by which i mean that it’s main purpose appears to be to get you off your butt and start something. Which is a very worthy goal, to be sure.
As an adjunct to this, he has created WebKEW, where he talks about making money online. There appears to be quite a bit of reading there, and it looks well worth checking out if you’re thinking of gettnig your own business going. (Some of what they have to say may even apply to folks not starting online businesses…)
