Before using this information to improve your life be sure to read the following notice: Disclaimer


General questions

Q: Why do you have those disclaimer notices plastered all over your website?

A: There are two reasons. First, I don't want to be sued if you use the information on this website and aren't happy with the results. Second, I have written this information for people who are willing to be responsible for their own success or failure. Therefore, the disclaimer is a warning that protects both of us.


Q: You have some unusual ideas about using self-empowerment to achieve difficult goals. Do you really know what you are talking about?

A: Yes, I have experienced these empowering forces myself. They have turned my life around after retiring from a dismal career in public accounting.

Money Magic 1-2-3 questions

Q: What is so great about your Money Magic concept? It seems fairly ordinary to me.

A: I have noticed during my public accounting career that many people have trouble starting and operating a money making venture. The Money Magic concept includes special self-empowerment methods that can help people overcome common roadblocks to success.

Choosing a Money Idea questions

Q: One of your tools used to select small business ideas is based on startup costs. These costs seem somewhat high. Does it really cost this much to start a small business?

A: These dollar amounts assume that you pay for all the likely startup costs before beginning business operations. You might prefer to pay these costs only as needed for providing a particular service or information product.

However, you should always satisfy any governmental, legal, and insurance requirements before beginning business operations.

Magic Success Secrets questions

Q: Why have you included a section devoted to publicizing your separate ebook?

A: There are two reasons. First, this ebook is the ideal companion to this website. It is very empowering and can help people have more money and improve their lives in other ways. It is up to each visitor whether to review and purchase this low-cost ebook on the Kindle store.

Second, I may create other free websites. I don't want to associate this separate ebook only with this website. I may want to make this ebook a companion to one or more of these other websites. That is why I decided to keep this powerful personal empowerment information separate from this website.


Q: Looking over your About the Author page, you don't seem to have much to brag about. Didn't you use your own success secrets?

A: No, my revelations came to me late in life. The only projects that have benefited from them are this website and other free or low-cost information projects. Without the ambition and insights from these revelations, I couldn't have completed any of these worthwhile projects.

However, during 2015 I will begin training for a serious online career. Ask me on 12/31/2016 how much I have to brag about.

Small Business Basics questions

Q: Under the Rules for Success in Business page, you don't show any details for the two sets of critical tasks. Will you provide these details in the future?

A: As time allows, I will add these and other enhancements. For the present, I am concentrating on publicizing this website and my ebooks.


Q: How important is it for prospective business developers to read the pages about Should you start your own business?

A: If you don't have any experience in planning, starting, or running a business, you should review all the pages in this group.

Small Business Startup questions

Q: This section is too long and too complicated for me. Don't you have something simpler to help me start a small business?

A: Yes I do. Go to the Business Plan for Simple Services page. This plan is meant to be used with the business ideas shown under the Start a Service Business main page.


Q: Do you have any hints about how an average person can start a small business?

A: Glad you asked. Here are some suggestions:

Become an above average person by reviewing and purchasing my low-cost Magic Success Secrets ebook. Then study the chapters in Part Two of the book to enhance your personal power. A good choice for starters might be "Chapter 7: Develop Empowering Beliefs" chapter.

Start out with a low-cost, low-risk business selling a service or information that you are already qualified to provide. Create a small, profitable business and then expand it to reach your goals.

One of the secrets to earning profits right away is to keep your startup costs and all other costs and expenses as low as possible. Forget about having a fancy car and a deluxe home office right away.

Start a Service Business questions

Q: How can I know what type of service business I should try to start?

A: You should choose an activity that you enjoy doing and that you are qualified to perform. Start out in a small way with a low-cost, low-risk business venture. Be sure there is sufficient demand in your market area for the type of service you are planning. Keep your startup and operating expenses as low as possible.


Q: If I start a small business now, how can I get people to pay me if they are short of cash in hard times?

A: Instead of asking for money, ask for something else of value. Then you can trade these items for the things you need. In hard times, learning how to barter could be a lifesaver.
