  5. Thought, “Sweet! I’m going to read this to get tips on how to buy potatoes for cheap online!”
  6. Or, maybe, you were one of the few, who thought, “Cool. There are even dudes in Idaho who are paying the bills with web marketing.”

So, I am here to say, with more pride than ever before:

Isn’t that the beauty of the internet? If you have a computer, an internet connection, and an understanding of web marketing, you can make money from anywhere in the world.  Yes, even in Idaho!
