I'm considering starting a social networking site for working moms, I would like it to also tailor to those who are interested in starting their own businesses and need assistance along with many other things on the site Does anyone think this would be a good idea and how I can start with this? I appreciate any suggestions.

Ning is a great place to create a free social networking site. I belong to a few social networks that cater to business women, on Ning and through a variety of websites.
You should try to a Google search for sites that cater to WAHMs and small business women and try to determine the needs that these sites do not fulfill. Many of these sites provide information on business start-ups, so try to find an area that has not been addressed by these other groups. Catering to a specific niche is a great way to go.

I tried to google for some sites where people networked with other people and this was the only site I found.... and from reading an article where it was mentioned.
Most of the blogs seemed to be one way communications concerning the same stuff about starting a business.
What we all seem to be looking for is a market opportunity with profit potential that we have the talent take advantage of. Trouble is, you just don't go to the store to buy one. And, we really don't need advice about marketing, management or all the other particulars about running a business before we have an idea we feel is worth pursuing.
Sounds like the circles you have found are a step forward.
Any chance you could share how to hook up?
Thanks (If these are private groups, I understand.)

I have a number of eBooks on how to build and promote such sites. Please feel free to check out my site at
If you don't see what you're looking for, I probably have it elsewhere as I have over 74,000 eBooks.
Thanks so much,

Hi, Where would you advertise, market and connect? what would you offer for a social forum? what will you offer to entice new people to join? I am thinking of the same thing, as I have friends who use blogspot.com and are young mothers, who really could use earnings from work at home-Sandralee
I could also use some seamstresses, who I could pay for piece-work, exquisitely finished! and also an art marketter. :7 :-)

MAKING 50,000 DOLLARS IN 20 days
This is NO joke?..
A while back, I was browsing these newsgroups, just like you are now,
and came across an article similar to this that said you could make
thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of
$6.00 plus stamps! So I thought, "Yeah, right, this must be a scam!"
But like most of us I was curious and kept reading. It said that if
you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and addresses listed in the
article, you could make thousands in a very short period of time! You
then place your own name and address at the bottom of the list at #6,
and post the article to at least 200 newsgroups. No catch that was it.
Even though the investment was a measly $6, I had three questions that
needed to be answered before I could get involved in this sort of
thing. 1. IS THIS REALLY LEGAL?? I called a lawyer first. The lawyer
was a little skeptical that I would actually make any money but he
said it WAS LEGAL if I wanted to try it. I told him it sounded a lot
like a chain letter but the details of the system (SEE BELOW) actually
made it a legitimate legal business. 2. IS OK WITH THE POST OFFICE OR
IS IT MAIL FRAUD?....I called them: 1-800-725-2161 and they confirmed
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL! (See Title18, h sections1302 NS 1341 of
Postal Lottery Laws). This clarifies the program of collecting names
and addresses for a mailing list. 3. IS IT MORAL? Well, everyone who
sends me a buck has a good chance of getting A LOT of money ... a much
better chance than buying a lottery ticket!!! So, having these
questions answered, I invested EXACTLY $8.04 ... six $1.00 bills and
six 34 cent postage stamps ... and boy am I glad I did!!! Within 7
days, I started getting money in the mail! I was shocked! I figured it
would end soon and didn't give it another thought. But the money
continued coming in. In my first week I made between $20 to $30. By
the end of the second week I had a made a total of $1,000.00. In the
third week I had over $10,000.00 and it was still growing. This is now
my fourth week and I have made a total of just over $42,000 and it's
still coming in..... It's certainly worth $6.00 and 6 stamps!!! Also,
make sure you print a copy of this article NOW, so you can get the
information off of it as you need it. I promise you that if you follow
the directions exactly, that you will start making more money than you
thought possible by doing something so easy! Suggestion: Read this
entire message carefully! (print it out or download it.) Follow the
simple directions and watch the money comes in! It's easy. It's legal.
And, your investment is only $6.00 (Plus postage)
IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not
illegal; and it is virtually no risk - it really works!!!! If all of
the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive
PLEASE NOTE: Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and $50,000 or
more can be yours in 20 to 60 days. This program remains successful
because of the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please
continue its success by carefully adhering to the instructions. You
will now become part of the Mail Order business. In this business your
product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in the
business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are
happy to pay big bucks for quality lists. However, the money made from
the mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made from people
like you and me asking to be included in that list.
HERE ARE 4 EASY STEPS TO SUCCESS
STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on each
piece of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now get 6 US
$1.00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of paper so the
bill will not be seen through the envelope (to prevent thievery).
Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal them. You
should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of paper stating
the above phrase, your name and address, and a $1.00 bill. What you
are doing is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL! You are
requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for it! Like most
of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried about the legal
aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S. Post Office
(1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that it is indeed legal! Mail the
6 envelopes to the following addresses:
63 Jefferson Ave. New London, CT. 06320
5507 Weslo Willow Rd. Greenboro, NC. 27409
3113 Piney Pointe St. Luise, MO. 63129
13362 Cypress St. Garden Grove, CA. 92843
1204 Rabus Dr. Fort Wayne, IN. 46825
7937 Vicky Ave. West Hills CA. 91304
STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the
other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR Name as
number 6 on the list.
STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as
close to original as possible.
STEP 4: Now, post your amended article to at least 200 newsgroups. (I
think there are close to 32,000 groups) All you need is 200, but
remember, the more you post, the more money you make! This is
perfectly legal! Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever
you need money, you can use it again, and again. PLEASE REMEMBER that
this program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity
of the participants and by their carefully adhering to the directions.
Look at it this way. If you are a person of integrity, the program
will continue and the money that so many others have received will
come your way. NOTE: You may want to retain every name and address
sent to you, either on a computer or hard copy and keep the notes
people send you. This VERIFIES that you are truly providing a service.
(Also, it might be a good idea to wrap the $1 bill in dark paper to
reduce the risk of mail theft.) So, as each post is downloaded and the
directions carefully followed, six members will be reimbursed for
their participation as a List Developer with one dollar each. Your
name will move up the list geometrically so that when your name
reaches the #1 position you will be receiving thousands of dollars in
CASH!!! What an opportunity for only $6.00 ($1.00 for each of the
first six people listed above) Send it now, add your own name to the
list and you're in business!
HOW TO POST TO NEWSGROUPS
Step 1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own
posting. Simply put your cursor at the beginning of this letter and
drag your cursor to the bottom of this document, and select 'copy'
from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into the
Step 2) Open a blank 'notepad' file and place your cursor at the top
of the blank page. From the 'edit' menu select 'paste'. This will
paste a copy of the letter into notepad so that you can add your name
to the list.
Step 3) Save your new notepad file as a .txt file. If you want to do
your postings in different settings, you'll always have this file to
go back to.
Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching for
various newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites,
Step 5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a new
message by highlighting the text of this letter and selecting paste
from the edit menu. Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that
everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a
particular group, click the post message button. You're done with your
Congratulations...THAT'S IT! All you have to do is jump to different
newsgroups and post away, after you get the hang of it, it will take
about 30 seconds for each newsgroup! **REMEMBER, THE MORE NEWSGROUPS
YOU POST IN, THE MORE MONEY YOU WILL MAKE!! BUT YOU HAVE TO POST A
MINIMUM OF 200** That's it! You will begin receiving money from around
the world within days. If you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent a
name to use, as long as the postman will deliver it. **JUST MAKE SURE
ALL THE ADDRESSES ARE CORRECT.** Now the WHY part: Out of 200
postings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very low example). So then I
made $5.00 with my name at #6 on the letter. Now, each of the 5
persons who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM 200 postings, each
with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each of the original
5, that is another $25.00 for me, now those 25 each make 200 MINIMUM
posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I will bring in an
additional $125.00! Now, those 125 persons turn around and post the
MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3 and only receive 5 replies each, I will
make an additional $626.00! OK, now here is the fun part, each of
those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters with my name at #2 and
they each only receive 5 replies, that just made me $3,125.00!!! Those
3,125 persons will all deliver this message to 200 newsgroups with my
name at #1 and if still 5 persons per 200 newsgroups react I will
receive $15,625,00! With an original investment of only $6.00!
AMAZING! When your name is no longer on the list, you just take the
latest posting in the newsgroups, and send out another $6.00 to names
on the list, putting your name at number 6 again. And start posting
again. The thing to remember is: do you realize that thousands of
people all over the world are joining the internet and reading these
articles everyday?, JUST LIKE YOU are now!! So, can you afford $6.00
and see if it really works?? I think so... People have said, "what if
the plan is played out and no one sends you the money? So what! What
are the chances of that happening when there are tons of new honest
users and new honest people who are joining the internet and
newsgroups everyday and are willing to give it a try? Estimates are at
20,000 to 50,000 new users, every day, with thousands of those joining
the actual internet. Remember, play FAIRLY and HONESTLY and this will
really work. ] By the way, if you try to deceive people by posting the
messages with your name in the list and not sending the money to the
rest of the people already on the list, you will NOT get as much.
Someone I talked to knew someone who did that and he only made about
$150.00, and that's after seven or eight weeks! Then he sent the 6
$1.00 bills, people added him to their lists, and in 4-5 weeks he had
over $10k. This is the fairest and most honest way I have ever seen to
share the wealth of the world without costing anything but our time!!!
You also may want to buy mailing and e-mail lists for future dollars.
Make sure you print this article out RIGHT NOW! Also, try to keep a
list of everyone that sends you money and always keep an eye on the
newsgroups to make sure everyone is playing fairly. Remember, HONESTY
IS THE BEST POLICY. You don't need to cheat the basic idea to make the
money!! GOOD LUCK to all and please play fairly and reap the huge
rewards from this, which is tons of extra CASH!!!

I'm sure your intentions are good but your competition is pretty tough. There are lots of "social networks" with lots of people discussing this very thing. I would be sure that if this is what you want to do, find the sweet spot that nobody else has discovered (not an easy task) then jump in. I think it's a long hard row to hoe but hey, google wasn't built in a day.
