Can You Really Easily Make Money Online?

Joan SotkinI recently received an email with the subject, “Can you create a 50K a month Webinar?” Of course, the copy said you can. This kind of over-the-top claim is rarely true. I’ve been doing tele-classes and webinars for 12 years and have been doing business online for 20, so I think I can give you a realistic overview of the potential for earning money online.
