Jeffrey Lant is a writer and speaker who markets programs through his company, Worldprofit Inc., that claim to help people earn money online. His products include books and online courses that he claims help people attain financial freedom through work-at-home programs. The programs include building marketing websites, doing freelance work and earning money through eBay and Amazon.
Lant began consulting for non-profit organizations and publishing books in the 1970s. Before moving his base of sales to the Internet in the 1990s, he produced a syndicated column and radio show. His website lists 12 books for sale as of 2014. His book titles include "How to Make a Whole Lot More Than $1,000,000" and "Multi-level Money." Lant offers a variety of packages of Internet products that entrepreneurs can sell on their own sites.
Some critics feel that Lant is dishonest about how easy it is to make money online. Additionally, critics say that much of the information Lant sells is available for free online.
Before signing on to any work-at-home program, it is important to research the company selling the program and to get references. The National Consumers League notes that there is no quick and easy way to get rich online and that any business requires skill and hard work.
