Please be patient and take notes when I demonstrate how to do something.

Step #1:
Figure out what you are good at. Have you had cooking lessons? Do you know how to repair cars? Do you do carpet cleaning? Write a list of these things that you are good at..
Step #2:
Look for a niche/product that has to do with your expert knowledge. Once you find one, cross reference it with the google keyword tool and make sure it gets a ton of traffic and has significant competition. Choose the one that gets the most traffic and you know enough about. Find 4 major keywords to focus on.
Step #3:
Start getting internet traffic to your product. If you really want to be thorough and ensure your success, build a list with the traffic you get. (Webpage or blog recommended for list building)
Step #4:
Once you start to get hits, sales, opt ins, customer service requests, etc.. Manage the business. You always have a choice to sell your blog/clickbank account/list/youtube account/twitter account, etc.
