RE: One of the best deals available today on the internet.

In a rush.... CLICK HERE
http://www.firstventures.premium.ws

I know you are busy but I am about to
share with you the most incredible and
mind blowing bundle available on the
internet today.

This is not a bunch of recycled garbage!

This has 9 Great packages (plus) of
the most current resale rights items
available today. All in one members area
for one low price.
http://www.firstventures.premium.ws

Each one of these items sells by the hundreds
every single day for $47-$197 EACH!

But you get them all for one low price for
a lifetime membership.

The price you see is an introductory price
and I can not guarantee the  price for
very long.

In fact, if you get this email late you may see
the price is over $100. So click this link
http://www.firstventures.premium.ws
to get in on the very low limited time price!!

Thanks so much for your time ;)

==================================================

Welcome to My Own Ezine and thank you for subscribing.
The MOE Mission is to help you start your own ezine
and to grow it into a profitable venture by learning
the many aspects of ecommerce and internet marketing.
I value all my subscribers and welcome all opinions,
comments and questions. Please contact me at:
stan@myownezine.com

==================================================
==> Timely Topics
==================================================

SECURITY:
Every business has to be concerned with the security of its property
and the safety of its customers. This is especially important when
publishing your ezine because you have the opportunity to harm so
many people so quickly.

Since the last issue of My Own Ezine, I have received several emails
containing viruses from legitimate business addresses. Fortunately,
my anti-virus program, McAfee, caught and deleted these emails"
before they left my host's server. I am convinced that the ongoing
costs of anti-virus updates is an absolute necessity for ecommerce.

Here are links to a few of the top anti-virus programs:
http://www.mcafee.com/us/
http://www.symantec.com/product/
http://www.pandasoftware.com/home/default.asp
http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/home.jsp

You can get a basic FREE version of AVG with FREE updates at:
http://free.grisoft.com/freeweb.php
Be sure to remove any other anti-virus program before loading AVG.

Viruses, however, are not the only monsters lurking in our virtual
mailboxes. I have also received three scams attempting to acquire
secure passwords at PayPal, Clickbank and eBay.

They began like this:

"Dear Subscribe@myownezine.com ,
We recently reviewed your account, and suspect that your PayPal
account may have been accessed by an unauthorized third party."

"Dear eBay customer,
During our regularly scheduled account maintenance and
verification procedures, we have detected a slight error
in your billing information."

When you receive an email requesting that you input your password
"somewhere", it is probably fraudulent. Delete it!

Additional security safeguards should be taken to protect
your Windows and email software. Keep up to date with
Microsoft's Security updates at:

Dallas Franklin's review of Terri Seymour's My Own Ezine Manual:

"I've come to know Terri since subscribing to her ezine and
you'll find this manual very comprehensive and her personable
writing style shines through. She details every step from creating
to developing an ezine along with samples to help you along.

Even when Terri explains copyrights, disclaimers, privacy policies

You CAN Be a Great Salesperson!
©   Terri Seymour

When you are in sales, you have the choice to be
successful or unsuccessful. The only one to set limits
on your income and success is you!  A career in sales
is a challenge.  Use that challenge to motivate and
excite you.   Meet and beat that challenge!

There are five basic components to sales:
prospecting
making contacts
qualification
handling objections effectively
closing

Do not fall into the "natural-born salesman" myth.
A lot of people feel if they do not take to these
components naturally they won't be able to at all.
Forget this myth!  You can learn to be a great
salesperson - the choice is yours!

Sales is a learning experience.  You need to be always
learning and reviewing.  A very effective method of
learning is repetition.  Write it, read it, speak it,
hear it, and learn it !!

Characteristics of a successful salesperson:

1.  Appearance  - make the most of your unique
individuality and walk into a room with pride and
a commanding presence.  Take pride in your selling
career and in yourself.

2.  Confidence - You need to "glow" with a sense of
self-confidence.   Even if you are not the best in sales
YET, you can be.  Let this feeling of confidence show
through to  everyone you talk to.

3.  Overcoming fear - Know your fear so you can face it
and overcome it!  Once you do this, the confidence will
shine through.

4.  Enthusiasm - In sales, sometimes you will get the
sale and sometimes not.  That is to be expected.  The
trick is to stay enthusiastic even when you do not get
the sale.  Do not let it bring you down.  Keep that
enthusiasm going for the next prospect!

5.  Desire - You have to have the desire to succeed.
If you have the desire, you can overcome any
obstacle and become a success!

6.  Do not take rejection seriously - In sales, there
will be rejections.  Do not let these rejections cause
you to doubt yourself.  Let them make you stronger
and more enthusiastic for the next sale.

7.  Caring and warmth - You need to actually care about
your prospect and feel right about closing the sale.
DO not try to bully people into buying.   Lead them
smoothly into a closing that will benefit them.

8.  Continuing education - You need to always be
learning.  Invest some time and money into your mind
and learn how to be the best salesperson you can be!

Great salespeople are not born great.  They have the
desire to become great.  They take the time and invest
in themselves and learn how to become great!
