I recently started a home based travel business a couple of months ago for a very small investment and boy has it grown. Basically you own your own travel booking site just like travelocity or orbitz (mine is www.back9travel.com) and you make commissions off people booking through your site. Once they purchase through the site all of their future purchases become residual. I started out just giving my site to my friends and family and make a good amount of money that way. Then I started to promote it and it has just exploded. I can also sell these sites to people that want to get into this easy business. Its all about promoting. For more information on how to get your own travel booking site go to www.back9travel.net and click on company presentation. You will see how much potential this has even for the novice. The best part of all now I save thousands on my own travel! It was VERY much worth doing.
