Welcome to the Create Income Streams website, offering information on using the World-Wide Web to enhance your income.
I am a long-time computer scientist and web entrepreneur. “Web entrepreneur?” Yes, and for years a spectacularly unsuccessful one. I gained most of my knowledge by making mistakes and listening to other people’s mistakes, just as you are probably doing.
I am devoting this site to reviews of the things I’ve tried, what worked, what I liked or didn’t, and what I did right, and wrong. I’ll point you to sources of information that can help you speed up your learning curve.
What is a niche website? Here is a (sarcastic) tour of a website created by Adam Short, who teaches his e-commerce techniques through his Niche Profit Classroom membership site.

Where do the minicourses come from? Most of the material is publicly available on the Web, so why sign up for a minicourse? Several reasons:
- We find and select the material so you don’t have to wander around the web searching for it.
- We put the material in order so you won’t be frustrated reading material without the background for it.
- We break up the material into bite-sized chunks. If the material were dumped on you all at once, you’d likely be overwhelmed, put it aside for later, and never get around to it.
- We send you more information every few days, so you won’t just forget about the topic. The big enemy of success is your attention wandering before you have completed something.
