Step 1: The Master Checklist


There is work involved in making money from a website. And at first this can seem overwhelming -especially if you are new to this.

So to help you progress through the things you need to learn and do I have created a checklist. The tasks are listed in order so you can just progress through the list one item at a time.

If you are starting from the very beginning and you don't have anything yet: no website and no topic, then you will be able to see exactly how much progress you can make in no time at all. Remember: I am going to teach you everything and it will cost you nothing. Just be persistent and stick with it.

I am going to take you through each step in the list but for now just print up the list so you can keep track of your progress. It is ok if you don't yet understand everything.

Cut and paste this checklist into a text or word document then print it up for further reference:
